(Ignore my chipped nailpolish.)

Top: Charlotte Russe
Skirt: Forever 21
Shoes: Privileged

I'm currently in the process of trying to break in these shoes and it's terrible.  This was also my first time wearing these chevron pieces out, mostly because of fit issues and problems with coordinating.  I never saw this trend coming, but I bought the corset a couple of months before it blew up.  I got the skirt on sale a couple of months into it.  At my old workplace, we were selling chevron scarves and bags up until January.  Trends never die in small towns, it seems.
 Sometimes I get bored of plain black tops, but I usually buy dresses and skirts and it's what I like to make as well.  There's always a top shortage in my closet, which is why I prefer winter.

I need a hair trim, but I hate the salon experience.  I can't be the only one.  I don't like the expectation of having to talk to my stylist while they tell me my hair is damaged or lie to me and tell me that it's not too bad.  I don't want to be rude, so I always answer...but I'm always glad when they give up.

I finally opened my Etsy shop, but there's only 2 skirts in there so far.  I was going to wait until I had at least 5, but it seemed pointless.  I have 3 more that are almost done, and then a fancier one on the way.  I'm excited about it, which is terrible.  Making things to sell almost makes me possessive of the items that I finish and I have to fight the urge to keep them.  Especially that fancy skirt.

Anyway, here are the two so far:


  1. pretty look :) you look great!
