what i wore {fresh and found}

happy wednesday.

happy mid January 2013.

good. ness.

this is one of the first "official" Lucia K. necklaces I ever made.  it lived in my brain for a long time before it came to life.  it is named Loretta after my great grandma who I spent summers with as a child learning to cross stitch and crochet with, I once entered a pillow case I had stitched a kitten onto into the county fair and won second place.  lovely memories for a lovely necklace.

why am I telling you all this?  besides that its late and I am feeling sentimental for a childhood past.

I have a couple of these left.  they are the last ones as I can no longer get these specific fire-polished czech crystal beads.  I kind of consider this piece classic Lucia K.  its hand-tied macrame using navy dupioni silk with raw edges, the beads get longer as it drapes.

I want the last ones to go to good homes.  so if you love it too, its a sale price that is a steal.  seriously.

ok outfit #2 - I have been seeing so many cute sweaters with the button up shirt underneath.  and I have tried this combo unsuccessfully thus far.  until I found this great light weight shirt.  now I can mix-up my sweater.skinnyjeans.boot look with another layer.

white shirt - Anthropologie
jeans - J Brand, Nordstrom Rack
boots - Frye
necklace - Lucia K. Loretta
earrings - Lucia K. Tag

do you all have lots of goals or resolutions or themes for the new year?  a new beginning.  fresh start.  i'm officially on board.  one {of many} for me, is to blog more than 1x week.  now that I have a good record of posting regularly on wednesday.  I think I can at least bump it up to 2x a week, or more.

so watch out wednesday, you are going to be joined by other days!

linking up with pleated poppy for what i wore wednesday.
