I know it's not original, but I love florals in the spring. I've recently decided that the best place to put this cliche is on my feet.

DIY: Sequin Party Clip

While I was ordering my sequin heart from I happened upon their sequin party clip set and instantly fell in love. But the more I looked at them the more I thought I could probably achieve a similar look on my own. I had some sequins lying around from another project so my first attempt is silver, but I'll definitely be trying this again with different colors.

Supplies: sequins, hot glue, felt, and a barette

I spread the sequins out so they would be easy to pick up, slathered some hot glue on a piece of felt and went to town. I did several layers to add depth.

Hearts for Japan

I've always wanted one of these pretty sequin hearts from and now is the perfect time to finally do it, they're donating 25% of the proceeds to aid relief in Japan.

Madewell you're killing me

I think my love of madewell has been pretty well documented here. But recently I've found their prices outrageous and also their sizing a little weird (so ordering online is difficult).

When I got this email I thought I might have to break my stalemate but as I looked at the pieces more and more I realized, a. I probably had a bunch of them in my closet already and b. the rest I could find at Forever21, urban, etc for half the price.

Total cost of this outfit: $679 (this is including the $90 bikini randomly tied around the backpack)

Total cost of this outfit: $243 (I also included a bikini)

I'm back!

Alright, here we go. First post in over how many months?

A lot of stuff has happened since I was last here. And clearly its been keeping me so busy that I haven't been able to pop over, even for a quick hello. (I would do a sad face emoticon, but I feel pretty eh about emoticons.)

I think about blogging all the time. And I miss it. So I'm back and ready to try again. Andiamo!
