There's no beginning and there is no end.




Hello everyone.  I thought I'd squeeze in one last post before 2014 comes to a close, although I'm really not one to celebrate the new year, or proclaim "good riddance" to the previous year, because I believe the present is really our only reality and the illusion of the "new year" was created by man to give our reality a break, or a sense of purpose (you know, existential stuff), but I'm not going to get into all of that!  We're here to have fun.  :P

This post is probably my favorite to date.  The pictures came out awesome (thank you hubby!), and this is totally and completely and wholeheartedly a Susanna outfit, accompanied by just a few new additions to the mix (one that is actually new, and others that have yet to be featured on the blog until now):

The military jacket I've had for a few years and it did not cost me a cent.  It is another one of those pieces I scored in a lost and found at a previous job of mine (don't worry, it had been living in the lost and found for quite some time), and it has been a perfect winter coat for those extra chilly California days when all I want to do is pile on the layers.  My favorite part about this jacket is that I am pretty sure the previous owner was some rascal of a skater kid, because it came adorned with splattered paint, ripped seams, and a "Thrasher" pin on one of the front pockets.  ILOVEITSOMUCH.  

The jumper I am wearing underneath the jacket is probably one of my favorite winter pieces.  It is a thrifted item I purchased back in 2011 at a local eco park.  It is seriously a gem.  The copper stitching across the chest is obviously the best part.  

The shoes, however... the shoooooessss!!!!  Finally, for the first time ever, I have a brand new pair of classic T.U.K. Creepers in my wardrobe.  I know that creepers have been a huge trend in the street style and offbeat fashion world for awhile now, but I have wanted a pair ever since I was a wee teen listening to Rancid in my angst ridden bedroom years and years (AND YEARS) ago.  I have been pining for this style specifically (the typical black mondo suede platform), because they go with almost every piece of clothing I own.  (Infinite thanks to my ever so wonderful husband for giving these beauties to me for Christmas!! Ahhh they're mine foreverrrrr!!)

Okay enough with the theatrics (though I was being completely sincere in all of that).  I hope that all of you have enjoyed the holiday season, and that you are looking forward to the days to come, while remembering to accept and appreciate today. Have a happy and safe new year, and I'll see you on the other side.  ;)

Love to you all.  =^.^=
