You do an awfully good impression of yourself.

Diggin’ on Etsy.

Our buddy Grieco referred me to this awesome line, based out of good old Richmond, VA, my old hometown. Excellent drapey necklaces that are, as he mentioned, “right up my alley.” Meet Thief&Bandit, and my next purchase: [Thief&Bandit and some wares.] [Double braid spring forest fabric necklace, $40.]
