So we had a lot of changes happen at the end of last summer— I decided to go back to school to pursue a teaching career and our infinitely awesome photographer Karen decided to move to Brooklyn to pursue her photography career. I’m happy to say I’m just one semester away from being a real life elementary school teacher and Karen is absolutely pwning her career in New York— she works for a photographer in Manhattan and continues to shoot weddings independently all over the east coast. She even shot my wedding in September!
As you can tell, with all these changes, Pickpocket fell to the wayside but my closet continued to burst at the seams. I’ve been waiting to have a little extra time to get some new stuff onto the site and now that my wedding is over, I finally do!
Even though Pickpocket isn’t going to be as fancy as it was when Karen lived in the same apartment as me and we had the luxury of inviting our friends over for Tuesday night photo shoots in our living room, I hope you’ll still browse and hopefully find something that you love. As always, just email PickpocketShop@gmail.com if you see something you want and I’ll make it happen.
Thanks for your patience during this little hiatus! Happy Pickpocketing!
If you know me, you know I have a serious weakness for all things nautical. I’m rarely seen without my trusty gold anchor necklace on and I’m prone to buying anything striped that crosses my path in a store. Lately I’ve been on a quest for more nautical jewelry and in that search, I came across Odette New York’s Etsy shop. I’m REALLY into their Coral Cufflinks and Kissing Seahorse Necklace but I’ve also had my eye on some pieces that aren’t under-the-sea themed. There are tons of adorable and quirky charms but I think the Bullet Hole Necklace has to be my favorite— it’s such a gorgeous piece and so interesting too.
Everything in the shop is carved by hand in Brooklyn and the prices are pretty sweet too (most items are under $100 and nothing is more than $200). AND their summer sale is happening right now so everything is 10% off through July 24. Visit Odette New York and snag some swoon-worthy jewelry today!
One of the funniest girls I know happens to run one of the funniest blogs around, Shmitten Kitten. Anna is the girl behind the site which she says if it were a college course, it’d be called “The Sociology of Dudes.” One of my favorite things Anna has created recently was this “Bad Date Bingo” card. Man, I would’ve had a field day with this game in my heyday… but luckily, Anna also got me off the market by introducing me to my awesome boyfriend. Beauty, brains, a wealth of pop culture knowledge, and matchmaking skills— is there anything she can’t do?
Meet Brian, the stylin’ guy behind Dirty Richmond, one of my favorite local blogs. He roams the streets of RVA with his camera, snapping pics of the city’s many sartorial superstars. Some days I want to keep Richmond’s awesomeness under wraps but everything on Dirty Richmond makes me realize that this rad city deserves to be recognized for the edgy, cool place it is. My favorite part about Dirty Richmond is seeing my stylish friends get props for looking fresh around town. Just a few weeks ago, our very own Diana got caught looking cute as she crossed Broad Street. Follow Dirty Richmond on Tumblr to keep up with Brian’s street style adventures.
(It’s Hugel! See what I mean?)

Our very own Hunter recently started a blog that follows her during a year of wearing at least one thrifted item each day. We’re constantly blown away by the things this girl scores while thrifting and are especially smitten over these rad swim bottoms she wore to our pool party last week. Follow her adventure on 365 Days of Thrift!
If you haven’t checked out our girl Karen’s photo blog yet, you best hustle on over there…
All the way from Boston, we have Kristin’s Day 4 Outfit! Despite going away on vacation for the last day of the challenge, Dave still planned out Kristin’s outfit. These shorts (handmade by Miss Kristin herself) were originally paired with a short sleeve shirt but considering the 60 degree weather in Boston, Dave decided instead on a long sleeved tee and tights (phew). So travel chic. Kristin must have been the cutest girl at Fenway, hands down.
