Pirates





























Wide Brimmed Fedora, Chico's Velvet Tunic, Astrology Bag, Beaded Necklace, Boots // Thrifted
Snake Earrings // Local Shop

I'm so stoked that I got a chance to stroll around the Las Vegas Pirate Fest. It was my first time and I encountered so many beautiful souls full of endless creativity. I love asking people where their from and lately I've been attracted to women from Ohio. So strange, I know, but they seem to be so in tune with themselves. It's the best when these peculiar festivals pop into town since they bring such authentic garments and rare jewelry. I would've taken more photos of the clothing, but the wind was ferocious. No lie, my hat flew off like five times lol, forcing me to hold on to it most of the day. When I know a themed event is near, I don't buy ready to wear costumes. I've discovered that the affordable options can sometimes end up looking corny and the convincing costumes can cost a small fortune. So I just opt for the thrift store and start collecting anything that even slightly resembles a particular theme. I think you can see that here and I was a bit inspired by Tia Dalma from Pirates of the Caribbean. She has this dark kooky energy that I quite admire. It's funny, the gorgeous mermaid pictured above, told me I looked like I stepped out of 1968. She's so right!

    1. Thank you so much! I bought the tunic and boots at Goodwill and my hat was from a local thrift store.
