It was super hot and muggy in Portland when I put this number together.  At first I thought it would be a real bust, but then it grew on me and I decided it deserved OOTD status.  I know there are a number of you out there missing my regular OOTDs, and I'm going to try my hardest to hop back on the cool outfit wagon as time rolls on.


You know though, with shows in foreign places, awesome press, wonderful new stores selling my wares, and ...oh yeah, getting married in one month...time has sort of slipped out of my hands.  I do think this outfit was the perfect thing to pull me back into it.


Shirt:  old cut off wife-beater.  (I know that's not a very PC term for a shirt, but where I'm from, that's what we call it and I can't just call it a white tank top...I can't do it.)

Skirt: Vintage prairie skirt from Village Merchants on Division.  Love it.

Shoes: Soda from Ether on NW 23rd.  (While I don't love how the employees act while shopping in this boutique, I do still love supporting local.  Just...come oooon girls, be nice!  It'll make your day better, I promise.)

Earringsb & i shamless love line.  These make me feel happy. (click on the earring picture and you can get some for yourself.)


I know it's been awhile, but I'm still here.  I always was.  And I always will be.

Thanks for stickin' with me, y'all.

xoxoxo- betsy

I sometimes get in an argument with myself in the morning to keep from wearing my AMOUR pair like those featured every single day! They are my go-to favorite pair of earrings because they go with every style, every color, ever mood, and they remind me of you -duh! the best part! I also received many compliments on my big red disc earrings last week at the wedding bashes in N.C. Keep the incredible designs coming, you are blowing my mind! Much love, see you in a couple of weeks – whoa the excitement is starting to brew in my bones!
