dress - goodwill
vest - a&f
shoes - target
necklaces - j crew, flea market
on this particular day, i was feeling a little crafty. i woke up and decided to cut the arms off an old jean jacket (i wore it in my senior pictures.. it's that old) and turn it into the denim vest i had been wanting for summer. here's a tip: if you want something, rather than going out and buying it, just make it! i had this jacket for a long time and i knew i would never where it as a jacket again, so why not try it out as a vest! as for the rest of the outfit, i am so in love with this dress. its mid length, floral with a bit of a 90s feel. adding the denim vest really made it a bit more grunge. i dressed it up with some cool lace up booties and added a few necklaces; one of my favorites, the neon pink elephant & another diy piece. i really like big, statement necklaces and while at a flea market a month ago, i spotted this cage on a keychain and thought it was too cool to pass up (it even opens up so i can carry things in it!). i took off the keychain part and put in on another necklace with another little elephant to wear with my neon elephant. and yes, i did refer to my necklace party as a herd all day.
