Studded Collar: DIY
Rosette Necklace: Forever 21, $6
Lace Top: Forever 21, $16
Cheetah Skirt: H&M
Shoes: Wt. Mountain

I'm in love with my new collar! I've been seeing them around but they are a bit pricey so I asked my dad if I could have one of his old shirts and I cut the collar off and studded it :) I also purchased this necklace recently and thought it would look cute peeking out underneath the collar and I love the way they look paired together!

I'm pleased with the lace top too; it doesn't keep you that warm but at least when it gets to Spring, it will make a great layering piece without causing you to overheat. I threw on my "Sherlock" inspired coat, last minute as I ran out the door for school; did you know the one Benedict Cumberbatch wears in Sherlock is over $2100?! Who knew?

Anyways, this weekend I have so many things to do. I'm taking the ACT on Saturday morning and I need to get up at 6:30 AM! :( I would have loved to have been able to sleep in. I've been staying up so late this week. It's not even that I have a lot more homework, it's the fact that I've realized I work most efficiently when I have complete silence (everyone else is asleep and it's quiet outside too). In addition, I have to finish The Great Gatsby in English and I feel so much more inclined to get into the book now that I've found out Tom Hiddleston played F. Scott Fitzgerald in Mignight in Paris! Hehe :) Then on Sunday, I'm studying for APUSH with a friend in the afternoon and going to a birthday party in the evening. By the way, I'm getting my wisdom teeth out next Friday so you won't be seeing me for a few days after that... but I'm sure none of you will want to see what I look like anyways so it works out! ;D

I also think it's rather hilarious that in these past few days, I've had two people come up and ask me if they could have one of my Sherlock Holmes 2 ticket stubs... (the English 12 Film & Literature class gets extra credit for seeing it because they do a SH unit). I'm flattered that people understand my obsession but I actually only saw it twice... hahaha plus I will guard these ticket stubs with my life. I didn't wait 6 hours outside the theater for the midnight premiere for nothing!

This specific look also had the honor of being Chictopia's homepage feature so I took a photo when I saw it on my phone! :)

  10. Oooh pretty! That's a really creative DIY and I'm especially liking the contrast of the studs against the delicateness of your lace top. I hope the ACT went alright (it's shorter than the SAT though...? So although you had to get up super early, you get to leave the test site earlier...) Jennifer! Okay. So girl Fitzgerald based Daisy Buchanan on went to my high school back in the day. Fun fact! Good luck with your wisdom teeth operation and I hope that you've had a decent weekend, school work and all xx
