I’m building a smallish summer wardrobe..the talon ring is coming via eBay from Thailand. Will report back on how it compares in real life. Crochet bodysuit + shorts + sunglasses + cross earrings = 4th of July.

I was up at the RVCA headquarters today and got to try on the prototypes for the pieces I surreal. We’re looking at a few more months before they’re available, but I’m so excited! Kristin was looking smashing in a floral dress, quartz necklace, and peep toe motorcycle boots and I got to take a close look at the OCTAGON they had put in. They never fail to impress.
