Anointed

Portraits

While I’m sharing selfies, I have a handful of relatively new ones that I haven’t shared.

The one I’m sharing tonight was taken a few months ago, in the summer, prior to me switching my hair to Pravana vivids yellow, orange, and red. I’m wearing a crystal crown headband I made, which I nearly never wear in real life because it’s so heavy, it tends to slip and fall off my head, regardless of the fact that I tried to make it anti-slip.

I was momentarily SO happy because I thought it was Thursday and I thought “OH LORD, IT’S THROWBACK THURSDAY” and then I hovered over the time on my taskbar and it told me it was Wednesday and I was sad.

I’ve done a lot of things in the past in terms of fashion that I thought were cool and different at the time, but in retrospect are kinda embarrassing.

In 2012, I used to wear these birds in my hair. I swear.

Some more macro play tonight.

I loves watches, by the way. I got this Kenneth Cole piece at work for I think $25. If you’re interested in more fashion stuff from me, follow my fashion blog, Vivologie. #fashionfriday is a weekly occurrence, and once this project wraps up, I’ll be focusing on that blog more!

Detroit Grooming Company: Part III

Products

I had a really hard time choosing this last photo. But ultimately, I feel like this embodies the old world aesthetic of DGC.

The mirror perfectly frames this shot and gives the viewer a better idea of the company, in my opinion. In case you haven’t grasped it by now, they’re all about being local, handmade, embracing that rustic hardworking appeal of Detroit and turning out quality products. I really liked the old school shaving applicators, as they reminded me of being a little kid again and playing around my dad’s and grandpa’s, pretending I was shaving too. That’s the thing about this classic, old school stuff – it evokes memories you might have forgotten and brings a genuine smile to your face.

One of the other things I enjoyed about their booth at DIY was that they really paid attention to making their displays look vintagey, organic, and rustic, and it played up their products really well. (+10 points, guys)

You can have awesome stuff, but if you don’t display your products right, you’re missing half the equation for success. True story. Trust me, I went to school for this.

Don’t forget to hit them up on social media. Website, Facebook, Instagram << click ’em!

And that’s it for the mini series folks! Hope you enjoyed it and thank you again, Detroit Grooming Company, for allowing me to photograph your merch and sending so many viewers to my blog, that WordPress specially notified me of a boost in views. #yousdabest

Woo! Throwback Thursday!

Sometimes I find some really pretty things at thrift stores. This photo includes 3! A gorgeous English china teacup set and 2 sterling silver rings. I especially love the gold overlay one.
