The Basics

thebasics1

I’m a big fan of prints and colors but sometimes it’s nice to go back to basics. My basics go-to items usually consist of jeans, tank, blazer, a hat for those low maintenance days and flats to run around in. Also, I always like to bring along a pair of heels just in case we end up going somewhere in the evening. Trust me, this’ll prevent you from buying unnecessary new shoes every time.  :)

I have been looking for a furry white skirt for a while and when my girl Sab from Rouge Spark saw this at H&M, she quickly picked it up for me anticipating it will sell out (thanks babe!!) and I think it did because I haven’t seen it in stores since. Love the feminine fuzzy flare of this skirt, not quite fur, not quite fringe. Just perfect.

P.S. I noticed some has mentioned that the belt doesn’t fit or it’s out of stock in your size. You can still get it and use a leather hole punch pliers from Michaels to create holes so it will fit snug to your waist, then trim off excess leather :)

Happy Monday lovers!

Perhaps I just have a weakness for dangerous studs delicately wrapped around my ankles and down the back of my heels because when I saw these babies, there were no such thing as “no K, you don’t need this.”

These Valentino studded ankle strap sandals from the Fall 2012 Rockstud collection features pyramid studs, red leather, double adjustable blush ankle straps and a strip of smaller studs down the back of the heel. That little sucker behind my ears who frequently tries to discourage me from buying certain things was quickly shut down. No regrets here! :)

Made this pencil skirt with my favorite bow details from the left over materials from this pleated (faux) leather skirt, but I probably won’t be making another one of these for a while. Sewing with faux leather, pleather, or vinyl can be pretty tricky and time consuming and if you’re not careful you can rip the material on top and sometimes it can take hours to complete the project…I was pretty happy with the results but my back wasn’t. lol
