Friday Wildcard

Not quite sure why we’ve been sitting on these photos for so long, but that’s what the Friday Wildcard is for, right? We shot these in the basement at Via’s Vintage with the incomparable Audra. Not what we were envisioning from the start but we ended up with a sort of 1970′s-David-Bowie-meets-gilded-disco-queen kind of thing. How do you accidentally make this happen? We have no idea. Enjoy:

“Don’t you worry, I made all my friends stay home. It’s just you and me the way I dreamed. A dance for lipstick and chrome. I’ve got a swing in my step. Nothing could go wrong. I’ve got a mouth full of honey and a head full of dancing songs.”

A favorite and a staple, vibrant heavy duty chain and lustrous crystals come together to house a unique skeleton key. No two the same… because, you know… it’s kind of our thing. {shop Chrome online}

L’avenir takes Goldette

We had to buy this necklace. Seriously. It was just hanging in a dirty little corner of a flea market waiting for us. Vintage Goldette, it had a lot of the classic Goldette decor (frosted glass cameos, ornate metalwork designs). We removed the pendants for repurposing and added a handful of new chain and silver crystal rhinestones. Now, it looks like this:

Date Night

It was set. The plan, to meet up for a movie date and drinks. It was casual, but she’s not the most casual girl. It was of the utmost importance to look as if she tried, but not that hard. This outfit has to say so much that she can’t. I’m smart. I take care of me. I really like you. I accessorize with the best of them. I’m a risk taker. I’m sparkling, dazzling, brilliant.

Beauty in the details. We’ve had a crush on mixing metals as of late… we would almost go as far as to call it a relationship. Featuring our love in the familiar details of each design subtly, letting the materials speak for themselves.
