Frozen

See where I'm going with this?

Yup, more eBay. I've been realizing more and more that I need to be a bit careful about what I buy from eBay despite how much I love it. I've caught wholesale eBay sellers using my professional but very independent friends' designs and photos to sell cheap knock off items. Models, photographers, and designers alike. Although the same thing happens on Etsy but the roles are reversed. I see a ton of people buying super cheap wholesale clothing and jewelry from eBay, marking them up unreasonably, and even using the photos from the eBay listings with the models heads cropped off. Jeez! 
Anyway, my whole point with this is that yeah, eBay and Etsy are awesome, just beware of what you buy. Not just there, but anywhere. I try to buy as generic as possible and layer the crap out of things to make it more exciting. This dress may be an exception. You just never know what your money is supporting!

Getting off my soapbox now.

Now, this location. Yeah, it's awesome, right? Even more awesome is that it's near my new home in Nashville. The amount of ice and the cold here is pretty shocking just coming from living two houses away from the beach in California. But the weather is the least of my worries - as I grew up battling rain, winds, and darkness in the most southern part of Washington state. As much as I didn't like the weather there, it makes being here in Nashville feel more like being home.

Signed prints from this set are available here.
