Time Flies

Hello! This is what I wore last Thursday to school. I styled my outfit around this simple, vintage, black velvet dress. I thrifted it during the summer at a flea market for just $1. The versatility of this dress, the texture and the shape/style of the dress all had me falling in love with it. And for just one dollar? I couldn't resist! Anyways, I paired it with a funky, leopard print top, open weave tights, faux Doc Martens, dark lipstick and a beautiful necklace. Recently, I won this necklace in a giveaway on facebook. This necklace is actually a Kay Adams necklace. Kay Adams runs a wonderful shop, Anthill Antiques, in Carytown which is relatively close to where I live. She sells stunning jewelry and statement necklaces that shes designs and creates herself. I have actually been into her shop and even own another small necklace that she created. My mom especially adores the store and owns more than five Kay Adams necklaces. I was delighted when I won because this necklace is gorgeous. It is on a clear crystal chain and has delicate, old parts of watches hanging off of it. If you live in RVA, you should definitely check out Kay's shop. The address is 3439 West Cary Street   Richmond, VA 23221. If you don't live in RVA, you can always check her pieces out online HERE. Thanks for the necklace Kay!

Oh and exciting news- I was featured in Girl's Life Magazine! A full post about my feature and what the photoshoot was like will be posted later this weekend or on Monday!
