You've got too much to wear on your sleeves







I'm extremely behind on my posts; I still haven't even posted my photos from fashion week (except some outfits). Sometimes I really wonder how people juggle their blogs and their careers...I still haven't quite found the balance. This outfit was actually from my birthday. After a long morning/afternoon of shows, I came home, ate lunch and took a nap. When it came time to go to another show, I had to change outfits. I ripped the delicate sleeve on my top, probably while I was sleeping. I quickly changed into this little dress that is also kind of falling apart (I leave trails of chiffon petals wherever I go). I still love it, but I have a collection of petals that I need to sew back on. Speaking of sewing...lots of work to do!

Elizabeth and James dress - Gilt (click if you need an invite)
belt - thrifted
tights - Target

Love love,

  3. This leather jacket is a stunner! I've been looking for a great one for fall... may have to head to Coach to try this one on. It was so nice meeting you in person at the IFB conference, by the way :) And this Makeup Monday's video tutorial was so fun!

  34. What a great dress! I'm kind of hesitant to wear that bright colored red but it looks awesome on you.

    I hate to be nosy but I've been curious about this so I'm going to ask...I've been reading your blog since it was on livejournal and I feel like I remember you saying that you never spent more than $50 on a single item of clothing and that anything expensive was almost always a gift. Is that still true or has your clothing budget grown as you've gotten more successful? I ask because I browse Gilt like once a week and it's almost always STILL too expensive, so I just drool over stuff like Elizabeth & James, Philip Lim, Vena Cava, etc.

  35. That dress is an amazing colour!!!! Lovely!

    It's still true - the most I've ever spent of my own money is $50, on my thigh high vintage boots. But it's not something I am particularly adhering to - it's just happenstance. This dress was $48, and I had some "referral credits" - so it was almost free. The awesome thing about Gilt is that every time you refer someone and they make a purchase, you get a $25 credit. That's how I'm able to get so many awesome pieces for such a great value!

    But anyway, about the $50 thing. I don't count when I get something with a gift card - if I did, I have several things that were more than $50. I'm just a little frugal with cash because I'm still in a lot of vet debt;)

  40. 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.
