Glitz

I wore this last night.
Shirt- Thrift, Pants- J Crew, Bag- Kate Spade, Jewelry- Vintage
One thing I like about this top is how the back has some interest. Usually shirts are only decorated on the front. This has beads in the front and a dip in the back.

My jewelry for the night was pretty obnoxious.

Pink Elephants

I finished my pink elephant dress from Simplicity 2444.
This dress has pretty big pockets. I like the way the armhole is finished with bias strips instead of a bulky facing. It didn't pop out while I was putting it on. I might use this method on more sleeveless dresses.
The zipper is a centered zipper. I normally hand pick but I did this one totally by machine. It's not my favorite.
The dress isn't too fitted in the waist but still pulls in to give an hourglass.

Flower Power

I wore this to school sometime last week.
 Dress- Made by Me, Jacket- New York and Company, Boots- Payless, Bracelet- Charming Charlie's
I really like this dress but I've notice through wearing it that it gapes at the top when I slouch. I think next time I make something strapless I'll throw some stay tape in.
This is my new ring from Charming Charlie's this little elephant looks so happy.
