DIY Studded Collar, Peach Pleat Dress c/o LOVE, Forever 21 Cuffs, Colin Stuart Wedges


Today would have been a rather simple day if it weren't for the arrival of our Sherlock Holmes 2 DVD!! As we drove back home after a doctor's appointment, we saw a UPS truck pulling out of the neighborhood. We knew that was it! Lo and behold, there was a package from Amazon waiting in front of our door :) It was a moment to be remembered...

Here, I am wearing a pleated dress also from LOVE. This dress is very airy and breathable, perfect for braving it out in 90 degree weather! Even for fall, I can see myself throwing a white button up shirt and sweater over it and having the dress peek out as a skirt. I accessorized with my collar (you can easily make one by cutting up the collar from any old shirt, preferably a men's shirt since they have structure in the collar) and my cut-out cuffs from Forever 21, one of my favorite finds there!

In my art class, I've currently been practicing the basics of drawing eyes, noses, and lips. My very first assignment upon entering the class was to draw a preliminary self portrait, but now that I've been working on refining my technique, I am now working on a final self portrait and all I can say is that the improvement is unbelievable! I can't even believe that I drew it myself... Once I'm done, I'll be happy to share it with you guys!

3 days left to enter the LOVE giveaway for any dress of your choice, so don't forget to enter if you haven't done so already!

    1. Thanks Jess :D Your portraits are so stunning, I hope mine can look as good as yours one day! I like drawing faces the best! It's so much more rewarding when you get a person's features just right, verses drawing say a plant you know? And aw thank you! I will! :)

  14. You always manage to look gorgeous :) Love how you can be so versatile with different styles as well, some days you are girly and lovely, and other days you can be quite dark and grungy. That's so awesome! ^_^
