Outfit Details:
little boy’s blazer – thrifted
dress (with slight alterations) and tights – H&M
Her Majesty heels (available in four colors on the site) – courtesy of Seychelles
vintage wicker bag – gift from Dawn, my mom’s best friend

This week has been full of physical and emotional ups and downs. Such is the delight and absolute anguish of a young lady’s life! Overall, I am mostly happy happy with a hint of stressed the heck out for no particular reason other than being a worrier. I’ve just been busy, sick (I’m always sick) and missing my friends and family something fierce. I have this overwhelming need to build a fort, have a sleepover and hug and laugh and be sillypants. Luckily, I have just the right people in mind for that, and the holidays are just around the corner.

My life is far from perfect by any stretch. But gosh darn it, I am lucky in love. Family, friends and otherwise.

love love,
Keiko Lynn

  23. emilie says: November 12, 20096:59 pm

    These were my wedding colors 2 summers ago, and are still and always have been my favorite colors.. deep blue and a bright golden yellow. I love it! I love Seychelles for comfy shoes that are ladylike without looking like my grandma's less stylish heels. Thanks for the pick-me-up!

  24. Mary @ StyleFyles says: November 12, 20097:02 pm

  30. ann says: November 13, 20091:24 am

    I love your alterations to that dress – I have the same one, but in a light blue. I want to wear it, but it always reminds me of "The Orphanage", which really freaks me out. You've inspired me to shorten the sleeves and make it less matronly.

  31. coldlight says: November 13, 20091:43 am

    you have the BEST colour combinations in your outfits! i especially love the buttons + detail on the dress :)

  32. Jessie says: November 13, 20092:28 am

    i love love love this yellow dress
    why i never see it in the h&m store here>.<

  33. Shannon Lambert says: November 13, 20093:19 am

    Such a cute dress, yellow is such a nice colour and it's so hard to find done decently in clothing.

    I was at H & M yesterday and continue to fall deeper and deeper in love with them. They don't really carry many plus sizes, but if you hunt you can find a lot of stuff in Large or X-large that fits bigger then that. I walked out with three new sweaters. Love their accessories and of course the price.

  34. Nadia Kamballa says: November 13, 20093:36 am

    You look very pretty. Love the color combination..


  35. Keisa says: November 13, 20096:10 am

    Here’s a list of tools you will need to start: Jewelers’ pandora jewellery wire cutters – If you can only afford one pair, get memory wire shears. pandora charms These are designed to make clean cuts on tough memory wire, so can also be used for pandora charms uk softer wires. Chain-nose pliers sometimes called cheap pandora charms needle-nose pliers – Very versatile for picking up and grasping small items, pandora charms sale bending eye pins, closing jumps rings, even closing crimp beads. discount pandora charms Round-nose pliers – Used for creating loops on beaded head and eye pins. Can also be used for winding your own jump rings and as the second pliers you’cheap pandora ll need for closing jump rings. Optional pliers – Wire-looping pliers which have several graduated circumferences to allow you to form perfectly uniform jump rings and loops in place of the pandora discount uk round-nose pliers mentioned above. Crimping pliers which have little notches to allow you to both flatten a crimp bead and then bend it to form a rounded finished look instead of the flat crimp you pandora uk get using the chain-nose pliers. As for materials, I recommend some assortment packs of beads in coordinating colors, some decorative metal spacers, seed beads in both silver and gold These can serve as spacers and beautifully set off pandora sale your other beads., tube-shaped crimp beads Buy the best you can find – these are what hold it all together!, head and eye pins. Other than that, let your choice of project be your guide. You might want some silver or pewter charms.
