Don't have a cow, ok

 Today I took advantage of the slightly cooler weather, and I wore my new chap jeans! I bought them at Live True Vintage in East Nashville this past weekend. I love clothing items with fuzzy textures, and I was instantly drawn to the faux cow patches on these pants! The graphic, black and white qualities of cow print items make them really easy to style (like in this post from 2011, featuring a cow print coat). Black and white goes with everything!
I styled the pants with a simple black crop top and a neon pink blazer by Tea & Cup, from MUSE Boutique in Nashville. My necklaces are from the Candies x Girl with the Flower collection (as usual). I wear the jewelry from the collection every day! My rhinestone earrings are an antique store find, and my ring is from a beauty supply store. My shoes are Miu Miu; I found them on Ebay! And my handbag is from Aldo. It's a new favorite of mine. I'm a sucker for novelty handbags and accessories, especially ones with eyeball or lip motifs!
The headband I'm wearing in this post is currently for sale on Etsy! I'm in the process of restocking my store with headbands and floral accessories.

Summer Hats

I found this hat at an antique store a couple years ago. I've only worn it a few times, but I plan to wear it a lot this summer! It's a great summer hat! My cursor earrings are from MarinaFINI on Etsy.

I had to say goodbye to my super cute Japanese nails last week. Now, I have a polka dotted gel manicure. My ring is from a boutique in Seoul, and my bracelet is from Claire's Accessories.

My colored rhinestone necklace is from Bananas in Providence. My long necklace is from my collaboration with Candies Gifts (Candies x Girl with the Flower).

My sequin blouse is by MINKPINK, and I got it at Bananas. My skirt is ASTR from Nordstrom. This fuzzy handbag is a Goodwill find, but it's originally from United Colors of Benetton. I really like fuzzy accessories for summer. I'm really missing my wintry faux fur coats!
This kimono-style dress is a vintage hand-me-down from my mom. It's by Flora Kung, and it's one of my favorite pieces in my closet. The pattern coordinates so well with other textiles and garments. I usually wear it as a duster jacket.

Carrie Bloomwood + Zoe Schlacter

When I was in Hong Kong, I met up with blogger Carrie Bloomwood for a super cute shoot. We both wore jewelry and handbags from the Candies x Girl with the Flower summer collection, and I made a coordinating headband, corsage, and rhinestone sunglasses for Carrie to wear in the shoot. Carrie is a really great fashion and beauty blogger at carriebloomwood.com, and she also has her own clothing line
I'm wearing a Somewhere Nowhere top, a polka dot dress from House of Stella in Nashville, and sunglasses from Party City. Carrie is wearing a lace top and skirt from her clothing line, Varrie.

In this look, I'm wearing a dress from Maggy London and sunglasses from Party City. Carrie is wearing a unicorn printed top from Salad and a skirt from Onespo.

I made these edits of our photos with a glitch art generator, and I collaged them with some polka dots and images of the Candies x Girl with the Flower beads!

Also, I just made a brand new Tumblr for Girl with the Flower blog! Check it out at girlwiththeflower.tumblr.com! Follow for updates on my personal style + artwork, as well as some reblogged inspiration!

Eyeball Dress + Jewelry

I recently purchased this super awesome dress from the Australian brand, Di$count Univer$e. Because it's sheer, I layered a pair of black bike shorts a crop top underneath. I absolutely LOVE how it looks with my Candies x Girl with the Flower accessories! I'm wearing the "Eye See You" and "Quirky" necklaces. I tend to layer multiple necklaces from the collection, because the colors and elements are really easy to mix and match. I also layered a rhinestone and doll eye necklace from Craftland in Providence, Rhode Island. My ring is from a boutique in Seoul, and my flower sunnies are from Party City.

Candies x Girl with the Flower

Candies x Girl with the Flower is officially for sale online on the Candies Gifts website! I have been working on the collaboration for nearly a year, and it's been an awesome experience. I'm so excited to share this release with all of you! I'm very happy with the finished collection. This is the summer collection; stay tuned for the winter collection in a few months! The designs are inspired by common motifs in my wardrobe and styling choices. For instance, the eyeball motif is drawn from my regular usage of googly eyes in my artwork and flower headbands, and I included the lip motif in the jewelry and the handbag, because I love to wear brightly colored lipstick. All the jewelry is made of silicone, so it's super soft and flexible. This is a shoot I did of all the pieces! My mom took the photos (thanks Mom!) and I edited all the images.

Here are some photos of the display in the flagship Candies Gifts store in Hong Kong!
