My Clown, Let Me Love You.











Outfit Details:
vintage ruffled blouse - courtesy of The Vintage Mistress
altered dress - thrifted (altered to fit, hemmed)
belt - thrifted
tights - Target
"Blimey" shoes (living in these...so comfy) - courtesy of Seychelles


This is the second time I wore this outfit, since I didn't really bring a whole lot of clothing with me (and I've ended up staying longer than intended). Both times, I felt like a circus clown - maybe a little bit of a princess clown. It makes me think of The Bird and the Bee's song "My Love." It's a little silly but definitely a happy outfit. The first day I wore it, I was a sad clown. This day, happy clown. It all balanced out. I guess sometimes it's okay to recycle outfits.

Love love,
Keiko Lynn

  51. 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.
