Handmade Geometric Top

0 Comment

I made this top last night while trying to figure out a pattern for a dress I’m working on. I’d say it turned out pretty well. I still need to hem the sleeves, neckline & bottom.

  • top: handmade, $2 (fabric on sale at JoAnn’s)
  • belt: vintage, $15
  • cuff: Wet Seal, don’t┬áremember
  • jeans: Ross?, $15
  • shoes: thrifted, $5

TOTAl: $37

The Look of Welfare


I was asked if I was going to be paying with food stamps at the cash register today at the grocery store. I’ve never been asked that before, so it makes me wonder. . . is this what it looks like to be on welfare? Granted, I had a grandpa cardigan & an oversized pashmina on, but everything else was the same. Was it the heels that tipped her off or was it the two kids in tow? Scratch all that. I bet she could tell that I spent less than $25 on my entire outfit.

  • earrings: made by me, $2
  • blazer: thrifted, $4
  • necklace: RiteAid, in high school?
  • top: Shade, $10
  • cords: Gap, gift from mom
  • shoes: Payless, $5

TOTAL: $21

Anyone following Project runway? These earrings are an ode to Anya’s cool wing earrings. I want to steal those earrings right off her ears. Also, I might have a little girl crush on Anya. She’s got serious style.

Updated Cardigan & Lunching it


I altered this sweater before going out to lunch with my sisters & parents. We went to Vinto – an amazing (and fairly cheap) Italian restaurant. LOVED it.
