I recently shared two lookbooks over on the Bohemian Collective, one with this Raga top, and one with the same print in a dress. Ive been wearing this top alot lately, so I thought I would share a more everyday version of those lookbooks. This is easily one of my top 5 articles of clothing in my whole closet. It is so flattering in its cut, the fabric is so light and airy but not see through, the print is gorgeous... It's just a great little top. The dress is too for a fancier day out. I love it worn with simple jeans + simple sandals. Raga has stolen my heart!
About the beautiful jewels in this outfit... The first ring shown with the beautiful feather side detail is from La Bella Joya. I sent her the stone and she created the ring for me using it. It turned out to be a beautiful collaboration and now I'm hooked on her jewels. The quality is amazing and I love the little details she uses like the feathers on the side. The second ring is of equal quality and details, with feathers on the side also but in a different form and variation. That ring is from Stone Sparrow. Marina is a sweetheart and such an amazing artist. This ring came in a box that she handdrew a hummingbird and flowers on! Talk about attention to detail. And last but definitely not least, this amazing squash blossom necklace from Aurora Shadow. Veronica custom made this baby for me to use in my last Bohemian Collective Magazine in the main editorial spread. It came out just as I envisioned and is now my favorite piece of jewelry I own. I wear this baby so much. You can see it worn as a hatband in the latest lookbook here. I feel incredibly blessed to even own this beauty. You won't find this in her shop, but I'm pretty sure she will make them on request if you message her. It's like the most amazing secret gem around!!!
Out of all the hats I own, I have two favorites that I wear constantly. One being a FP leather rancher hat, and this one, a handmade beauty from Whisler Civilian. Love love love these guys and their craftsmanship. Stellar work and style.
It's a joy to know where all the items I wear come from, and to know the hearts behind the creations. The best part of sacred adornment in the everyday. Of course not every article of clothing or piece of jewelry I own or wear has a story or an artist behind it, but the majority of them do, and it feels so good to adorn myself with these items.
