Sometimes I really get sick of myself. Or my brand. I guess I should say I get sick of my aesthetic.

I want to be sophisticated. I want to be chic.  At the very least, I want to be interesting.

Today I'm sick of Secondsister. I'm sick of my girl with the birdcage  and I'm sick of my koi fish that I've loved for so long.  His name is Cisco by the way.  Bet you didn't know he had a name.

Anyway, today I want to be someone else.  I want to sell chocolate or vintage items instead of jewelry and doodles. I want to have an office with a fancy little holder for my cards so when people meet me they know exactly who I am and what I do. I want those cards to have scrolls and flourishes.

Tomorrow I will be happy to be Secondsister. But today- today I dream.

P.S.  I also want this hat from Anthropologie.

P.P.S. Dear Brothers Record,
Please do not pee in your pants. I will not require an entire site redo. I won't be rebranding anytime soon. But a girl can dream right? However, don't get too comfy either.

I just wanted you to know that I look at your blog everyday because I think you are sophisticated, chic, and interesting. I even crocheted the bangles from the other day because I thought you were so clever:) I also made the earrings!

i relate to this, lady. for me it is the hormones, and they hate my hair, my website, my bedding, and what little clothes i have left that fit me. EXISTENTIAL STUFF!

p.s. i heart you

p.s.s. we are struggling with finding a name rad enough for our baby and it has made me appreciate you and your children's names, you clearly have a gift. you should email me your suggestions. i'm plumb stuck.

I always arrive at your blog and leave your blog thinking, "She is so stylish and fun and funny and creative...more than just interesting." Maybe it's great that you don't realize how wonderful you are...but you are!

You are all so very kind and make me blush at every turn. Alas, today I am happy to be Secondsister again.

Oh, I ENVY your style! You are clever and artistic and most of all-UNIQUE! I know it is easy to feel like you are stuck in a rut but so many LOVE what you do! Keep on inspiring us!
