Never Stop Dreaming: Dreamcatcher Style.



Dream Catchers have a special place in my heart. When I was really young, not even in my teens, I suffered from really awful nightmares. Most likely because of my over active imagination, but it was a big problem. I just wasn’t sleeping. My Tio (Uncle) heard about my struggle and gave me a beautiful dream catcher to hang above my bed. He told me that it would catch all of my bad dreams, so the good dreams can come through. That night was the first night I slept through the night. That dream catcher stayed with me through my college years, until one day it just simply unraveled.

It’s no surprise to me that dream catchers have become more than just a beautiful object in the bedroom. It has made its way into the fashion world in subtle ways. 






So, then I asked myself, why don't I have anything with a  Dreamcatcher in my closet. Well, now I do. 
A few weekends back I went to Badwill Market, a cool vintage market pop up in Seattle.

 I came across J Project Clothing, who had the necklace I didn't know I was looking for. 



It was love at first sight. When I saw it all I could think was maxi dresses and jean jackets.

J Project Clothing, a mobile boutique had more than just a Dreamcatcher necklace, it also had crop tees. I don't know why I didn't pick one up. 


It's fun to find a piece of jewelry that you can't wait to wear, especially when you know you will have it for a long time.
