Hoo

I’ve got a thing for owls. I’m not sure what it is about them that attracts me. I think a large part of it is the kitsch factor.


Cardigan, Forever 21. Dress, thrifted and shortened. Owl brooch, thrifted. Pumps, Footworks (thrifted). Ring, Sin City.

This little owl brooch is made of leather and looks handcrafted. I imagine it was once someone’s summer camp project. You never know what you’ll find in the thrift store jewelry case.



Other owl stuff I own:

And I’ve bought even more owl bits that I have yet to wear.

I love owl jewelry too and am always amazed at your finds. They seem to gravitate to you instead of the other way round.

Quite a collection you've amassed, there! I think the little leather guy is my fave.

OMG -- I have that sweater, in that color. I feel a little bit more stylish now, just by association! Hee!

I love how you use the brooch.

I'm building my wardrobe from the foundation up, and I plan to add some fun, thrifted accessories. Maybe I'll find my own version of the owl.

Great set, I love that leather owl.
It´s clever how you always have one item that sparks up the entire set.

The cardigan clip is awesome and so you!

I love the purse. I forgot where you found that one? I seem to remember that you thrifted it but maybe I'm wrong.

I love owls too! I've loved them for years, but lately I've been scouting owl accessories more and more. I'm glad I'm not alone here! Love your style!

Keep rockin' it!

Where did you get that adorable metal owl with the black eyes?? I lOVE IT!

I found the metal owl with black eyes at a flea market (it is an antique), but all the teenybopper stores were selling something similar last summer. Check Forever21, Urban Outfitters, etc.
