In the Loop

Who doesn't love to find those ridiculous deals on fashion? So here you go! I picked up this textured loop necklace yesterday from Forever 21 for $3.80. It makes a nice layering piece. And yes sometimes 3.80 looks like 3.80 but not this time. The rings on the necklace have a hammered effect making them look more expensive. Here it is sitting perfectly with my "J" La Vie Parisienne necklace that I believe was around $50. A lovely mix and match situation...

Crystal Queen & Halloween

I recently added a new item to the Etsy store called Rock Candy and it is a sparkling mix of clear crystals and silver embroidery. It would of course make an stunning bridal piece, but it's so wearable for everyday. I have worn it while working a few times with jeans and boots or a cute dress. It adds just the right amount of glam for daytime and when wearing at night, it can be dressed up to no end. I like that it gives the look of a substantial headpiece, even tiara inspired but being on a headband makes it not over the top for daily wear.

Speaking of over the top, I made a one of a kind feather headpiece for myself as I was planning to be a flapper for a Halloween Ball I am going to. But the only thing I liked about the idea was the headpiece! I couldn't find a costume I really wanted to wear. If only I could make my own outfit...sewing clothes is just something I can't master. So I am going to be a vampire with this great mini top hat with veil wearing another style costume that I am going to re work (light alterations I can handle). I am sure its going to be a popular hat since it seems to be available everywhere, but I am going to wear it anyway- might add a few extra touches to it though...make it custom ;)
