Edgy Holiday

If there is anything I like my outfits to be, its a little bit edgy and different.  This dress shown at the right is the skirt that is shown above.  The dress was not doing much for me so I decided to turn it into a high waisted sequins pencil skirt. I added some feminine masculinity to it by pairing it with this silk blouse with a built in tie at the neck.  I tied it a little bit differently then normal, ( made the bow a little smaller and then left out a longer piece to make it more non traditional).  To accessorize it, I wore this metal fringe choker necklace over the collar and then wore my black harness wedge boots.  I am loving this for the weekend holiday festivities!

Vintage Sparkle

More Vintage dresses.  What can I say, I love them.  These are two sequins dresses that I have acquired.  The really pretty green one was reworked just a little.  I bought it with a broken zipper, so instead of repairing it, I decided to make it an open back. Conservative in the front with a sassy back, I love it.  The second one is a black sequins and silver beading dress.  It also has a deep V open back.  I told you I had alot of sequins!

Glam Rock

I'm on a roll.  This is a vintage sequins skirt that I about died when I saw.  The best part of it was that it was a sequins two-piece suit.  Yes, that's right.  That means that it came with a matching sequins top.  Two pieces are the best vintage finds; it's like two for one.  Just wait until you see the top.  You can only imagine. Oh, and that fun hat? I just finished making that last night.  It's not 100%, but I  like where it is going so far.  It was inspired by spirit hoods last year.  Yes, you heard right. Last year.  I started this hat a year but during my move it got lost in the shuffle, but thankfully, in good luck, I found it.  I definitely want to try and make some more.

Lady Lace

 Today I bring you another vintage great.  This is a black lace bodysuit with gold detailing in the pattern.  I love bodysuits. They are fantastic to wear under maxi skirts or high rise jeans.  I wore this one with my black jersey maxi skirt and then tied this tan scarf around the waist as a belt.  I love to wear my scarfs as sash belts.  It gives it a more bohemian touch, and is also a very flattering detail on the waist. Try it out!

Lost and Found

 Today is a great day.  I have about eight hundred memory cards for my photography work, and today I found this gem with my work from a Florida trip!  I thought I had lost it but, Alas. I absolutely just love everything about the medium of photography.  Out of all of the aspects of art I dabble in, photography would probably be my number one. Enjoy!
