Craftiness

As of late, I've been feeling especially crafty... cutting things up, hot gluing, sewing, stuff like that. It all started when I began making headbands with some of my friends. I covered one with a large stack of flowers, fell in love with it, and decided that making my own flower headbands is much more fun (and cost effective) than my individual flower clips from Forever 21. I've been wanting switch up my everyday flower combinations, and this really is the perfect solution to grow my flower collection. I've made about ten headbands in nearly every color of the rainbow. I've also expanded to figurines and other small objects, such as this tiger. I've made headbands with bird figurines, cat figurines, a small doll, and a giraffe.. It's so incredibly fun!

My headband craftiness led me to other crafty activities, like sewing! I went through a serious sewing phase from about age 10 to age 13, but I haven't really done much since. I picked up this dress at Goodwill, and got to work. Now, I'm reworking my wardrobe.. chopping the hemlines of skirts, making fabric belts, fixing up unworn tops. Originally, this dress had a pilgrimish lace collar and was about four inches longer, but I fixed both of those problem areas in a jiffy. It's now my new favorite thing to wear. There's nothing better than a bold vintage-inspired dress!

Meow!

I found this jacket at Macy's in the INC International Concepts section way back in September. It was love at first sight. I stalked it on the internet for two weeks, as it was gradually marked down to the sale rack. Finally, I purchased it at about half the original price. Now that's some savvy shopping, if I do say so myself! I was excited to wear my new find, but the to-hot September weather was far from faux-fur friendly. Now, in November it is at last cold enough! I find myself wanting to wear this jacket nearly every day of the week!
However, when I wore it to school last week, the reactions were peculiar. People treated me like I cat all day-- the freshmen kept petting me. Eventually I played along.. meowing back.




Yes, yes... this post is quite overdue.. High school and blogging do not mix well.
