pond. amy pond.

My grandfather Stanley died before I was born, but my father keeps trinkets and photos of his around the house.  A few years ago, he gave me this ID bracelet my grandfather wore while he was in the Marine Reserves (in the 1940's or something!).  The clasp is a little loose, so I'm always afraid of losing it when I wear it out - how did Grandpa Stan wear this in the military!?  But I haven't lost it yet.... knock on wood!

I wish I could've met my Grandpa Stan, because apparently he's where I got my knack for writing from.... and no one saved any of his poetry!  Quite unfortunate.  But I suppose writing is my own way of remembering him.  :)

Outfit Details:
red hoodie - American Apparel
black skirt - thrifted and modified
tights and socks - Kohl's
Converse hi-tops - DSW, I believe....
ID bracelet - Grandpa Stan's

Oh, and my necklaces!  I'm almost always wearing these two necklaces, my dragon/nazar pendant and my turquoise bead choker-type-thing.  I have no idea where I bought/found them, but I've worn them for as long as I remember :)
