if wishes were horses

I would ride, ride, ride.

Pippi Longstocking
In 2011, I learned how to cook beans (without burning them), how to take, process, and print photographs, I quit smoking, and I decided to live a healthier lifestyle, but 2012 is going to be so much better. In 2012, I’m going to work hard to sell more vintage, get ready to open a store front, and create my own line of urban cowgirl outlaw clothing for gals with untamed hearts. These are my dreams, and I’m sick of letting them sit by the wayside while I work at job that I’m not passionate about. I am scared to take this leap, but I don’t want to be stagnate anymore. I want to live fully. Seeing so many talented gals online jump in the saddle and ride their dreams has really inspired me. If anyone would like to offer any advice or encouragement, feel free to email me or leave a comment.

Much love,

Crystal Lee

  1. Hi Crystal,

    I'm right there in that boat with you. I can't offer much advice since I've just made my first steps toward working for myself, but positive thoughts are with you! You can do it :)

    Anyway, I wanted to comment to let you know that I checked out Gypsyland in Desert Hot Springs as per your recommendation and got some GREAT finds. Including a red polyester maxi disco dress with embroidered chest crest and rhinestone buttons for...$2. Amazing! Thanks, I'm definitely going there each time I visit Palm Springs.

  2. Thanks for your encouragement, Melissa, and good luck to you too! I'm so glad you found some nice vintage at Gypsyland.

  3. Good for you! I'm so glad you're finally taking the plunge.

    btw, i'm looking at your tags: "I'd have a tumblr if I could figure it out but maybe it's better this way."

    you are cracking me up. <3 you!

  4. Oh I am right there with you 2012 is the year for creativity, I am bored of not challenging myself. I am very excited to see what you will come up with, urban cowgirl line sounds magical. Oh and I am going horse riding for the first time since I was eight next year so I am making a start I guess? x

  5. Go HARD! If anyone can make their dreams a reality,you can!
    Ooo,you make me feel all frisky for 2012!
    It's going to be a humdinger!!

  6. Best of luck!! I bet your vintage selling + urban cowgirl (swoon!) designing dreams will take you far, you certainly have a keen eye for wonderful styling.
    These pictures are the absolute ultimate. How I love Pippi!

  7. yeah, girl!! can't wait to hear how your dreams unfold.

    love your spirit and your blog :)

  8. Thanks so much, gals! Your comments make me feel so happy!
