I've been seeing tons of adorable jewelry holders made out of manzanita branches all over the internet. They're all so beautiful! My room is full of wooden birds and trees are also a motif, and I've decided I need one for all my Great-grandmother's vintage jewelry. I'd rather show it off than keep it in the box it's in now! (Even though the boxes are gorgeous as well.)
|Strangely, the walls in this room are exactly the same color as mine.|
Speaking of vintage jewelry, I decided this past week that I need to showcase some of my less worn pieces, so heres a simple outfit with a gorgeous vintage gold necklace.

I love it! Sadly, I'm slightly allergic to most metals, so wearing this too long gave me a rash on my neck. It probably won't stop me from wearing it though. Giving up jewelry would make me cry.
Over the weekend I had a chance to tighten the buttonholes on that lovely vintage dress I thrifted a while back. For those who haven't seen it, it's been posted before, worn by my lovely friend Wren:
Sadly, I think it looks better on her smaller frame (I've never been a fan of baby-doll dresses) but I'm very happy that I can wear it now and not worry about the buttons popping open over my chestile region every few seconds! I had Wren take some (somewhat dramatic) photos of me wearing it today after school:
