Cowboys in the Closet

DIY Cowboy pin, DIY shirt dress

I had a vision one night that I was wearing this as a dress. I didn't see how, but I knew I had to do it. The next morning I figured this thing out with a cowboy safety pin I made. I turned the sleeves inside out and tied them at the bottom to create pockets- best idea ever. So comfy and so convenient. Those pockets are huge. The best part is that it's all completely undoable and can still be worn as a regular shirt.

This shirt has a lot of sentimental value, and I'm glad it's finally getting some street cred too.

Austin Showers

modified lace top and bra (goodwill), lace cravat (god knows where), white skirt from a clothing swap, white wrap (walmart)

I had so much fun today wearing this. I didn't do much of anything.. in fact i just went to school to finish a paper and go to a meeting, but i felt like such a fluffy lacey cream puff. I don't usually wear things with high collars because once upon a time i thought they didn't look good on me, but now i regret passing up an ADORABLE high collared dress from a friend at a clothing swap i went to this weekend.

Have you ever participated in a Naked Ladies Party? It's almost as exciting as it sounds.. it's when you get a bunch of your most fashionable friends and acquaintances together with all of your unwanted clothes, present each one at a time and whoever likes it gets to try it on and have it! If two people like the same item they both try it on and whoever it looks best on gets to have it (the rest of the girls act as the jury). Fun right!? I should've taken pictures, it was so epic how many clothes there were in my friends living room.. but there were also a bunch of naked ladies so they probably wouldn't have appreciated that too much..

Dress for the day, the day will respond.

my darling friend Saxon is a phenomenal singer/songwriter/musician. take a listen

Knotty by Knature

aa crop top, goodwill skirt

Safety pins used to be the ultimate essential to my wardrobe, but within the last year or so knots have practically taken their place. While safety pins are still irreplaceable (truth be told i've been pondering a replacement invention for years) i've found knots are more versatile and aesthetically pleasing. They inherently drape or alter the surrounding fabric and create a fun 3-d shape out of your clothing that isn't shockingly avant-garde but rather wearable and unique. I e
njoy the cute and humorous appearance of these linear knots.

Hey- Summer!

Ready or knot, here i come!
