Obsessed with Instagram

I, like many other bloggers, am obsessed with Instagram. It's a great way to share experiences, but I've found that having an Instagram account has really helped me to see more beauty in my everyday experiences. It's trained my eye to look for interesting things to photograph and Instagram.
Follow me @zoe_schlacter... here's a sampling of the kind of things I post (mostly flowers, googly eyes, and rhinestones, with the occasional selfie).
In progress DIY projects (headbands, corsages, etc) and my handy hot glue gun

My glitter obsession: new dinosaur headband, my sketchbook cover, and shiny stickers on holographic posterboard

Sticker Collection

I put stickers on prints of my recent outfit photos and scanned them. I like the contrast of the brightly colored, super-shiny top against the preppy lavender uniform skirt. And as always, I'm channelling glittery princess vibes (note the crown, earrings, and holographic stickers).
Also, you can buy this headband (minus the sequin crown part) and corsages similar to the one I'm wearing on my Etsy Shop, also called Girl with the Flower.

Chemical Spill

These pants were a D.I.Y. project of mine from 8th grade. I simply splattered bleach on a pair of old black corduroys. I paired them with a vintage faux fur coat from Goodwill. This coat is very Margot Tenenbaum, in my opinion. This necklace is from Party City.. it's supposed to be part of a 70s costume. Also, this headband is for sale on my Etsy Shop.

Nautical

I found this blazer at Goodwill last Saturday. It was part of a suit a skirt suit, but I disregarded the ill-fitting bottom half. The embroidery on this blazer is just too nautical and tacky and exciting to ignore. My favorite part of this jacket is the shape; it's nipped in at the waist, which gives it a nice peplum(ish) shape. I'm still working on outfits for this jacket. I have yet to organize any particularly exciting outfits. So, I matched the jacket with a fairly basic outfit: my trusty, high-waisted Cheap Monday jeans and a "PARIS" tee shirt from the Marc by Marc Jacobs store. And lastly, I topped off this outfit with some blue lips, a googly eye, and a yellow flower handmade I made (which is available for sale on my Etsy shop!).
