Yoyo

This sweater was decorated by me in the eighth grade with some “yo-yos”. I invested so much of my time into sewing the rosettes and painstakingly tacking them down with a needle and thread.
Primarily, I used quarter flats from the quilting department and some leftover material from vintage dresses I’ve altered. I stitched the rosettes with “yoyo” templates from the craft store. Goodness, I cannot stand the word “craft”. Pop-pom snowmen from elementary school holiday parties immediately come to mind. (shudder)






These photos are pretty old. The outfit was successful, except the colors are a bit off in the photos. BUT! I’m a problem solver from way back, so I whipped out my quick thinking skills, and edited these photos in a jiffy. Actually, I just clicked the black and white button in iPhoto, but it doesn’t sound as exciting like that!

In reality, this sweater is a girl-scout-green sort of color.

Cracker Jack

I’m planning on using this cleverly printed top as a paint shirt, but I thought I’d snap a few pictures before it gets splattered with every color of the rainbow.

Celeste

So I have this friend named Celeste who is simultaneously gorgeous and photogenic pretty much all the time. She always wears really cute, edgy outfits, but every so often, she’ll wear something that is just too fabulous to not photograph. This is one of those outfits.
Plus, she's sorta the master of that paws-up pose...
Sometimes she does this thing where she’ll wear two belts at the same time... it has an effortlessly chic appeal, but it’s far from effortless. I’ve tried to belt-layer on multiple occasions, and it just looks too random. If I were to wear two belts, people would be like “Why the heck is she wearing two belts?!”, but when Celeste wears two belts, people are like “Why the heck is she so awesome?!”.
