This post's pieces (and the outfits that love them) are a mix of old and new styles, a rustic renaissance reignited by neon. Kind of like a pioneer wandering, awestruck, along the Vegas strip in search of a watering hole. You know. If pioneers wore pink and didn't die of cholera while chugging along the Oregon Trail.

But on to lighter things.  Like the Mellow Metal Necklace's focal point of an industrial pendant.  I spied it on the clearance rack during one of my many visits to Michael's and plotted to purchase it the next time I returned.  When I later relayed this to the fiance, he shook his head and uttered something about the sad, stalkerish shopping habits of women.  Why, he asked, don't we just buy everything we want all at once?  I explained that this would never do.  After all, what could be less sad than saving a little something for later, a kind of rainy day treat snatched from life's candy dish to be enjoyed on some spinach-filled Monday? 

Shop on, pioneer princesses.
