So my sudden absence was my Florida trip. We went to Miami then the keys then back to Miami. I don't have any school outfits because my battery died today was strange though because alot of the people I knew were wearing yellow and blue and so was I.
Here are my vacation photos they were taken by my mother.

Feeding tarpon at Robbie's in Islamorada. We brought some of own fish.
The southernmost Point in the U.S. in Key West. I love that Key West has chickens running around. My mom and I wanted to see the drag show at 801 but they wouldn't let me in since I'm under 21.
Me at the Key West garden club it was a fort in the civil war.

Feeding seagulls.
We went to the Seaquarium and saw two dolphin shows.

Me with a dolphin statue.
Sea lions are just so cute.
Flamingos at Jungle Island.
Feeding a bird at Jungle Island.
This is Mama Cass I like the colors of her head.
Giant bird flying over my head
I went to Bal Harbour I think they fill the air with stuff that makes you think that a $900 dress is reasonable. I saw this print in a dress I didn't try it on. I didn't see these tights though because I would have bought them they are so me.
Riding bikes the last day.
I look tan.
I went snorkeling 3 times one time I saw a HUGE sting ray.

Sequins and shop update

Guess what I got. Sequined leggings! I went to the mall with some friends to grab lunch and the we went to H&M and as we were leaving I saw these and my friends knew what I was heading for.They were $20.

Be my baby

I made another dress recently. Its very similar to my tuxedo dress except I cut the top out of one piece instead of two and its a different print.

I made this necklace two, out of miniature playing cards.
I finished the seams with my serger and added a big button. I think this would be a good date dress not that I go on many or any really umm. Its also a bit nautical which is always fun.

I curled my hair the other day this is what it looks like.
And a hair clip I made from a Christmas decoration.

Again any Miami and Key West suggestions are appreciated.
Starting tomorrow I will be updating my shop, with card necklace,flower necklace and nautical dress.

Summer Accessories

In the summer I usually wear just a dress which is nice, but it does get a bit boring. It is the same thing I wear in the winter but I add tights so it feels interesting. I decided that my solution to my summer conundrum is ACCESSORIES.

Something on my head is my solution to any outfit often when I'm walking around I'll see something and wonder," That would look nice on my head," Thankfully I know people who put up with preoccupation on head wear.

  1. This green veil is lovely and it has BOWS, I love bows and the color green, Oh I wish I had $36.
  2. The headband combines my love for zippers and flowers in one place $5.80.

  3. Flowers are nice aren't they $68.00.

  4. I love this it reminds me of those butterfly hair clips but better. If this were a clip instead of a comb it would be mine (my short hair doesn't like combs) . $35

  5. Feathers Aah $20

  6. Possibly the easiest DIY ever but still nice none the less $9.99.

  1. BIG FLOWERS + teensy price = happiness $4.99

  2. I like this because its a big feather and very Marie Antoinette-ish $4.99.

  3. This is nice because the feathers go above your head $16.

  4. I think this one would look nice in my hair because white looks nice against brown, though I do feel like the model is trying to intimidate me $23.99.

  5. This is such a fun hat $44.99.

  6. I like beads it reminds me of friendship bracelets $13.99.

    Or maybe a fun bag could make an outfit better.

  1. Look its a school bus and it smiling, I like it when things smile at me $34.

  2. I almost bought one of these when I was in S.C. , because a Jimi Hendrix lunch box would be a great little bag. Currently $11.99 Two days left.
