Turban: DIY (Tutorial here)
Glasses: From a friend
Cross Necklace: Vintage
Galaxy Bustier: Thrift ($5)
Vest: Vintage (My Mom's!)
Belt: Forever 21
Maxi Skirt: Vintage (Also my Mom's)
Boots: Steve Madden

Hi guys! Today, I'm wearing a DIY turban that you can make in under 10 minutes, probably in 5 minutes if you have much experience sewing though :) This is an easy project that you can do to use up any leftover scrap fabric, and they make great gifts for friends!

I love this bustier and the way it photographs. I originally found it at a thrift store for $5, but it was in a size Large. It was such a unique piece though and I was determined to have it so I bought it and cut out some fabric from the sides and then sewed it back up and now it fits perfectly! You can snag up a lot of good deals by altering sale pieces!

The printed vest and the maxi skirt are both from my Mom's closet. I keep taking things from her! :P This skirt was also rather fun to take pictures in. I encourage you all to raid your parent's closets. Also, don't leave out your Dad's closet if you only plan on looking through your Mom's. I take all my giant oversized sweaters from him :D

I'm also really excited because my Fashion Design teacher invited me to come talk at the booth for next week's incoming 9th grade orientation! So I will get to talk to the current 8th grades about taking Fashion as an elective next year :) My sister is going into highschool too and I am forcing her to take Fashion >:D Thank you all for your comments! I promise to comment back on all your blogs; it just may take me a few days because of school and all :)
