SO many exciting things happening with CFTD!  Unfortunately, they can’t be revealed yet.  But rest assured dear reader – the good things are yet to come!

This week I want to take a moment to highlight a local designer & friend of mine, Westline: a simple and elegant personalized leather key-chain designer.  In an age where the possibilities are endless for useless gadgets – I have a certain affinity for beautifully designed utilitarian goods.  And if I can get them customized to say my cat’s name, then all the better!

Westline makes quality custom goods at a price that is frankly way too good to be true.  So if you are looking for a great gift or just simply need a rad keychain – check her out here @_westline_

Costume For The Day:

– Levi’s high-waist skinny jeans in a pale wash with light distress

– Black poly box-top from the thrift shop

– Cream cotton over-sized cardigan with brown & black stripes, also with super cool wooden buttons (also from the thrift shop)

Frye huaraches

Love you, mean it
