Brooklyn Rehab































Black tee: American Apparel
Colorful ethnic skirt: thrifted
Wooden key necklace: Brooklyn Rehab on etsy
Sandals: Saltwater Sandals






























I wore this outfit last week sometime, just thrifting and out about, the usual stuff. My favorite part of this outfit though is definitely my new wooden key necklace from Etsy seller Brooklyn Rehab. It goes with just about everything in my closet and is beautifully handcrafted. I have a thing for keys for some reason. I have a tiny sterling silver one on a chain that I wear sometimes too. Everyone always asks me, "aww is that the key to your heart!?" And I'm like, eek...naahh, I just um, like keys...? Haha I wish there was a more sentimental reason!


























As a vintage clothing lover, it's natural that I love just about anything aged. I also am starting to have more of a rustic, primitive taste, and Alyssa's shop really suits my style! You can find anything from ceramic mushrooms to delicate doilies and I highly suggest you visit!






































(Not to mention the adorable packaging it came in, which is delightful! You'll just have to buy something to see what the fuss is about I guess xD! In fact, if you purchase any jewelry, enter the code "Friends of Mars" for a 15% discount! Just jewelery though, remember!)

And check out her blog if you can't get enough! (Like me :D)

  4. that key is lovely! and oh no, hemming accident! you can always throw on a pair of tights to add modesty, but you'll have to wait for a cooler day. i had thought of hemming the dress myself, but i am a klutz about those types of crafts!

  8. Cute shop, pretty key.
    I don't know which started first, my love of vintage decorations or fashion. But I love them both so much! Everything from dishes, to statues, to purses! I can't get enough. But I do go thru shopping phases (or obsessions). Once you study and enjoy a decade you like many things from it!

  10. I just love finding lovely etsy stores. I tend to want to buy anything that is owl shaped so I think I may just have to buy one of the ceramic owls.

  15. I came across that shop on etsy some time ago and fell completely in love. Everything is just my taste, and I think quite clever. I've yet to make a purchase, but you've just reminded me that I should wander back to take another gander.
