Last Minute Loose Ends


I'm just finishing up some last minute business before heading out to ECUADOR tomorrow! As you might notice in the store, I will be unavailable from November 19 until November 30. This means that I won't be able to answer emails nor fill orders until I return, but don't despair, I will be back to fill all of your holiday orders on time!

Be sure to tune into the American Music Awards on November 22 at 8:00PM on ABC to see if you can spot any Heist items! I'll be sure to post all the information about the awards (including pictures) after I return.

Have a great week, everyone!

PS-One of my BFFs, the wonderful Carol, has hooked me up with NEW MOON SNEAK PEEK TICKETS FOR TONIGHT!!!!! Thanks to Carol and Burger King for this totally unexpected and wonderful surprise!

The CUTEST little video over at Liebemarlene Vintage this morning! Makes me feel like exploring!


New Boot Inspiration

This is exactly how I intend to wear my new boots upon their arrival in my life.

An embroidered heart

If this isn't the cutest damn thing you've ever seen then I don't know what is! This photographer, Cédric, has a little reminder of his wife everywhere he goes:

She embroidered a little heart inside his shirt pocket!

Donations for a Good Cause

I'm very proud to announce that Heist is taking part in the Fight Spinal Muscular Atrophy (Fightsma) 2009 Fall Party! Our Studded Heart Charm will be available in the silent auction. If you're in the Richmond, VA area, get all the information HERE and then go get your bid on!

Thanks to Caroline for including me in this awesome event! (And be sure to check out her hilarious dating/romance column that she writes for Richmond.com!)

Holy Grail?

I think I found it. Expensive but lovely vintage over at Nasty Gal. Thanks for the heads up, Because I'm Addicted!


Online Oniomania

Oniomania (from Greek onios = "for sale," mania = insanity) is the technical term for the compulsive desire to shop, more commonly referred to as compulsive shopping, compulsive buying, shopping addiction or shopaholism.

Check out my latest purchase, this time from the lovely Sally Jane Vintage Etsy store. I saw them, loved them, discovered that they were in my size and click click click, now they're mine!


Mr. and Mrs. Draper

Did you catch the Mad Men season finale?! I don't know about you but I'm already counting down until the next season!

While not everyone understood who I was supposed to be this Halloween, those who got it really liked it and those who didn't just kind of yelled things like "hey welder girl!" - either way, I'm considering it a success (even if my "stubble" began looking like a bad case of acne by the end of the night!)

And here's a pic of the most bizarre train ride I ever took (heading into Salem, of course)

I hope you guys had a great Halloween weekend too!

Dream Workspace

Officially, the greatest workspace/office/studio EVER!

First thing on the list for my future studio is one of these amazing lamps inspired by vintage photo equipment. See them here and here.

One of a Kind

I've decided that I want to do a few one-of-a-kind* pieces for Heist using some different stones that I've come across. The first in the series is this little (or not so little) Alligator on Onyx charm. I'll be sure to let you know when it's posted in the STORE!

*While there's no guarantee that I can make the exact same item twice, I might be able to make something similar, so please don't hesitate to ask!


Nerds unite!

I'm a huge fan of sweater vests and I love this usage of my favorite nerdy clothing item over at Kansas Couture

Note to Self: Must pick up some high waisted trousers!

AMA Poll: Display Item!

After all your votes a couple weeks ago, I decided to take your suggestion and make the (slightly modified) Small Triple Pyramid Stud Necklace my giveaway item in the AMA gift bags:

Now the next question is, which item should be my "display item" in the Gifting Suite? This is the item that will be displayed and photographed. I'm tilting towards the Military Jacket Stone Charm with the Aventurine stone (as pictured), but what do you guys think???
