I found this amazeballs jacket at Pixel 19, a little place I learned about through this fantastic Soapbox Cincinnati article.
The owner, Mr. Stu Ninzy, is the coolest dude on the planet. My best friend and I both fell in love with him.
See, this shop is in Stu's home and to check it out, you have to call him and make an appointment.
And when we did, we were welcomed like old friends and introduced to a humongous amount of awesome stuff.
Really, what more could you ask?
Well, I mean, we almost asked him to marry us. But maybe that should wait until the second visit...
poncho (last pic and below) - Francesca's Collections
horse print jacket - Pixel 19
dress - Old Navy via the Gap Outlet in Hebron
flats - So, I think
ring - I bought it at the world's biggest gun show with my He-Man of a man.
In other news...
I HAVE ADOPTED A QUAIL!
Her name is Coco Chanel and she only has one leg.
Here's the story: My man is a falconer and often meets up with his hawking mentor, Paul. Paul keeps quail for hawk training purposes (read: reasons that are unpleasant for the quail). I went with Brandon to meet Paul and saw his small box of quail. When one little bird flopped around with only one foot, it broke my heart. I asked Brandon if we could adopt her. He agreed, asking Paul to donate the handicapped fowl and then building a beautiful quail hutch from scratch. I love this man. Anyway, as we went to fetch Coco, my man suggested she might get lonely and asked Paul for another bird to keep her company. So now we have Gertrude Stein the Quail, as well!
