Blue Orchid

Picked up this light blue striped knit at the Fairfax Flea Market and these oversized Levi's from Goodwill when I felt like I needed some more boyfriend jeans in my life. I actually found these babies in the men's section and have since envisioned ripping and sanding and tearing the denim up in a bevy of different ways. They're definitely still a work in progress; will show updates of their evolution, if you guys are interested.

I've always wanted an i.d. bracelet and really lucked out when Ettika offered to send me the pair. I decided to get my first and last initial to really go with the whole idea of identification. I think a lot of young adults--myself included--are just trying to figure out who they are, and what better way than to start with a bracelet (or two) that says your name?
