The Simpler Life


For years now, I've been wanting a simpler approach to clothing (not accumulating massive amounts to the point where I only wear some things once in a whole year.)  And I believe I've found it.  For the first time since I was a child, I felt the actual need to buy clothing.  My t-shirts had gotten so ratty (or grossly stained) that I decided to just cut the sleeves off of them, making them tank tops, resign some to pajama status, or throw some of them out.  Then it hit me, "I only have 5 t-shirts!  What will I do when it gets cold outside?" 

Earlier this year, a love for jewelry developed.  For me personally, the idea of wearing simple, yet stylish clothing and mixing it up with interesting jewelry is more satisfying to my conscience.  There's just something about wearing things that I've made myself, or have been made for me by friends, that makes the act of wearing special.  Thus, I began making lots of pieces.  I will be selling some on http://www.realprettyinblackmarket.blogspot.com/.  Below is one piece to come:


I have made several pairs of these earrings and dearly love them.  I crafted them out of a necklace my mother bought from an African jeweler when she was in highschool.  Each pair differs a bit from the others as far as length, but the style and sophistication of each pair is equal.  I will update when I start putting things up for sale. 

Keep your eyes on the blog and spead the word!  Credit for the image goes to me :)
