Costume day 2016

Hi,
 Happy Halloween! How cool is it that this post lands on the exact day? I think it's pretty neat. Holidays and my blog never really work out too well; it's always the day before of the day after. Hope you stuff yourself to the brim with candy today, and get to absorb all of the amazing, boring, beautiful, stupid, punny, creative, cliche, and crazy costumes with the eye of an unbiased observer.
 I was a sock hop girl for Halloween, and due to my busy schedule, I only had time to make the skirt, scarf, shoes, and bracelet in the costume... But fortunately, they all came out great! Even though I stayed up until 11:55 PM to make that blasted skirt, I was proud of myself. Really, really proud.
 I made these cute DIY saddle shoes by using this link right here. It was so amazing and helpful, and I know I wouldn't have thought of using the technique they did. I was incredibly angry at first because I didn't know how to achieve the saddle shoes without spending $30 or over. But then, I did a little research and found a way to spend only five dollars. There you go, a little DIY action for you all.
 So, what were you lovely people dressed as for Halloween? And if you celebrate Halloween, being "nothing," "yourself," or "myself in the past/future" are terrible costumes and do not count. Laziness is not an option. You can see how not lazy I was making that skirt, and I expect the same from you. If you're really stumped and really late getting a costume, do what I did last year. Throw on a striped shirt and black pants and be a prisoner. Or, really quick, watch this video and get some inspiration. But always dress up for the only time in the year you can wear pretty much whatever you want and it's okay.
 So, I have some pictures to show you of my costume. Take a look!

Polyvore recently 3

Hi,
 Another Polyvore recently for you all! I've published some sets and seen some items that I wanted to show you. Now, keep in mind that these are not items I m going to buy, I just have seen them and really liked them. Believe me, I would love to buy everything I come across that I like, but unfortunately, life doesn't and really shouldn't work that way.
 For more sets and likes from moi, go visit my Polyvore page. Maybe even consider getting a Polyvore. It's so much fun, and the community is amazing and totally supportive. Can anyone say free reign? You won't be disappointed; I definitely wasn't!!
 Well, without further ado, let me show you my Polyvore recents:



This set was wayyy outside of my comfot zone, but I gave it a try!


Consider a DIY Cinderella costume for this Halloween!






Now for the items I've seen on Polyvore...



I know in this weather, this isn't exactly practical, but who really can resist a floral Zimmerman piece? Not I!

Winter prepping with some fun gloves...

And a knit beanie.


Obsessed with Racil pants lately!





More prepping for winter with some cute tan OTK boots...

As winter comes, I hope the (few) items that were winter-related help you dress stylishly yet warm! And for the rest, I don't know. I don't base my preferences on season. :)


Enjoy,

Job interview

Hey guys,
Nothing much today; just some inspiration for anyone seeking a new job or some new endeavor that you need to dress professionally for. And yeah sure, buying new clothes to replace what you already have works just fine, but why not put your old clothes to use in new ways? So I will now proceed to introduce you to upcycling, adding new stuff to old clothes.
 I did this work of art last summer. It didn't take me long at all. I added light blue trimming (notice how it matches my top) to the lapels, sleeves, and pockets of this lovely H&M blazer.
And no, you don't have to be a creative genius to upcycle. You can visit this site and upcycle without sewing. It's fun! You'll be surprised how much your clothes can change by adding a lace trim or a button.
 I feel very happy with my somewhat new, 100% upcycled blazer. So. Behold, my "new" outfit, job-interview or simply (trendy) work day ready!











Blazer: H&M
Top: Forever 21
Pants: Target
Shoes: Sam and Libby for Target

For all you hopefuls, hope you get the job. Good luck xo


Enjoy,
