Long Black Dress

What I'm Wearing // Coat-Nordstrom // Black slip-Vintage from the 1930's // Silver and Black leather Belt-Vintage // Necklace-Vintage // Long necklace-Chelsea Den Jewelry // Purse-Mat + Nat (Urban Outfitters)
It's been some time since I've posted a look. My holidays were so busy, and then I've been working on my jewelry like a manic, so my fashion blog's just been set back. But no worries! I'm working on new outfit posts, and am getting ready for a full year of sharing my fashion style regularly. The last year ended with my Vintage shop closing, which was a rather sad thing for me, but I still have pieces of it here and there to keep me close... Like this divine vintage slip from the 1930's that I choose to wear as a classic black dress. It's so old literally every hem is coming undone, giving me a nice sewing project every time I wear it ha! sometimes vintage is worth it, and this dress definitely is. I added an amazing belt that I got from my store. I've been wanting a silver chunky conch belt for some time now, and while this is a little different, I love the western style, and it's so much better than any conch belt I would have bought in a store new. The black necklace is also vintage from my store...The more I write the more I'm realizing this outfit post might be withdraw from working in my vintage shop, because that's all I'm wearing! Even though I'm sad to not have a funky little shop to hang out at, all things must change, and I'm taking this little bit of free time to get my other businesses up to speed, and get my jewelry company off the ground! 
I've got a million ideas for what I want to do with my jewelry, but one thing I'm most excited about is the donation portion of my jewelry business. Since I was young I've always been taught that people come first, and the older I get the more I realize that I have a passion for helping others; mainly those who can't stick up for themselves so well  (mostly children and animals)  so it's always been a dream of mine to somehow implement my various artistic outlets (fashion, design, and photography) with my passion for giving back. I researched a ton of organizations (which was a lot more overwhelming than I ever imagined) and sorted through the ones that aren't so good to find an amazing group that I'm so thrilled to support. Action Against Hunger is a wonderful organization that's doing a TON of powerful, planet changing things for our fellow humans likes getting food to malnourished children around the world, building sustainable water resources for communities that lack access to any at all, and many, many other things. A portion of every Chelsea Den Jewelry purchase will be donated to Action Against Hunger, and I made up a blog (http://chelseadenjewelrydonations.tumblr.com/) where you, as a customer, can see how your jewelry purchase went towards helping others. I honestly couldn't be more excited to be doing this, and am thrilled at the idea of including others in helping! If you want to read more about the organization and all that they do you can click

New Jewelry on Etsy

The Etsy shop has been restocked with all of the little bohemian treasures any wanderess could hope for, plus tons more. I've got necklaces, keyrings, bracelets, earrings, crystals, gems, leather, and all the little things in between. I'm already selling out of the tassel keyrings, but I'm getting back to work on the next batch of jewelry to be restocked, so go take a look while the stores still full, and add a little bit of lovely to your life! 
10% of your Chelsea Den Jewelry purchase will be donated to Action Against Hunger, an amazing organization that feeds malnourished children around the world, and also provides sustainable water resources to our fellow humans that don't have access to regular water supplies. You will receive a confirmation of your donation along with a shipping and tracking email. 

I put a lot of love and quality into the pieces I make. I create jewelry that I would (and do) wear on a regular basis, so please take a look, and if you see something you like, then you absolutely should treat yourself, because you deserve it!

Golden Christmas


What I'm Wearing
Dress // Tobi
Socks // Hanger 221
Flats // Makemechic

I wanted to do a Christmas post last year, but didn't feel happy with the photos I got so this year it simply had to happen! I spent the holidays with my boyfriend and my little Husky of a wolf Mika at my family's house in California. My family has always celebrated our big Christmas dinner on Christmas Eve so that our Christmas day could be spent opening gifts, lounging around, and relaxing...It's always the absolute...

"We do not know the true nature of change by it's moment of occurrence, but by the consequences of it taking root in our lives"
-Sarah Varcas
All things change and all things must change. This is something I'm slowly coming to terms with and will probably continue coming to terms with for the rest of my life. With one chapter coming to an end I'm looking towards the future to see what's next...Starting with a change of locations, followed by some new experiences, people, and most likely a large amount of adventure and mischief. But for now, it's time for work, work, work! 
I shot this look at the spot by the ocean that I love so much, and was excited to see that I got some shots of the 101 behind me in some of them.  Driving down that stretch of road to LA is one of my favorite times; there's always surfers, dolphins love swimming by, and the ocean breeze smells so good. It's California at it's finest, and I was there for a pretty incredible sunset. I had to take some shots of the ocean to share because I couldn't take me eyes off it! Thanks for stopping by!

Holidays


I would love to wear this to any and every holiday party this year. It's perfect for this California weather, and the style is such a fun one to wear. The socks, beanie, and cardigan give it that warm touch to match that holiday feeling while the edgier silver and black jewels and leather accessories give this outfit a kick that rocks!

Afterglow



What I'm Wearing
Scarf // unknown (Birthday present)
Sweater // Crossroads Trading Co.
Denim // H&M
Shoes // Makemechic
Rings // H&M
Hello everyone and happy December! My monday started off on a lovely note; I woke up early to post this since I was called in to work at my vintage shop today, but just got the lovely news that I don't have to come in until the afternoon! Therefore my morning is going to be spent lounging around drinking hot hot hot coffee (mmm just the way I like it!) and making jewelry. And to top off everything, and I mean top it off, it's a rainy day in Santa Barbara, something we haven't seen in a long, long time. And it's finally December. I really love this whole time. Throughout the course of this month I'm planning on drinking lots of warm, tasty sweet drinks, listening to the most classic of holiday music, and keeping a constant flow of blankets, oversized sweaters, and wool socks if not on me, very, very nearby. And last, but not least, there will be at least one gingerbread house decorating night, where I'm sure I'll just end up covering some poor gingerbread man's home in a rainbow downpour of frosting(it happens every year). So happy holidays, happy Monday and a happy start to December!

Classic

I'm now going to be posting mood boards and outfit ideas to my blog that can be easily shopped as a regular thing, and to start I posted a look of mine that I would literally wear everyday and not think a thing of it because I can't get enough of black, white, and gold! Besides that, I've been looking for a hat like this one everywhere so I'm pretty excited to have found such a rad one. Hope you enjoy and are having a happy weekend!
