There’s a whole lot of DIY happening in this outfit. First, perhaps you don’t remember this top, but let me refresh your memory from last week. I decided I hate the way I look in turtlenecks. No sweat off my back, I simply took a pair of scissors to the neck and hacked away until it looked right. I did save the neck to use as a headband for holding back my bangs when I wash my face.
I made the necklace from some supplies at Joann’s, I’ve been aching for a 60” gold chain from Spike the Punch to match my bracelet, but she’s always sold out. This will have to do for now.
Finally, this jacket is amazing. I love it to pieces, but the buttons that came on it were hideous. I mean, they were just plain black buttons, but they really did the thing absolutely no justice. So I picked up these great gold ones at the fabric store as well (there are four buttons along the backside of each arm as well as the big one in front). Oh did I mention, it was only $20 — plus the cost of buttons.
Oh hey, I’m in California by the way. Not in these pictures, but as of yesterday I’m hanging out in my beloved home state for the week. I have a feeling I’ll have to be drugged to get back on the plane Saturday.
