I can't think of a better piece to wear than this denim dress with cut out back to help me bear the heat. The weather has been so incredibly hot and beautiful in Santa Cruz lately, all I want to do is to play outside and enjoy the sunshine, although quite frankly I don't like being tanned. I paired this simple yet awesome dress with an amazing owl purse which has a story of its own. One day I was working and a girl came in with this owl purse (in a different color), I knew immediately I had to have it. She told me she got hers a few years ago from a vendor at the Marine County flea market. Hopeless, I thought. After hours of searching, I had successfully hunt down the vendor whose family business makes these gorgeous genuine leather products! They are completely handmade too! So there you have it, my little treasure hunt story!
