Faux Show












Jacket: Junkman’s Daughter (Identical Here) Leggings: Forever 21 Shirt: Old Navy Shoes: Lulu’s Bag: Phillip Lim for Target

My shopping mantra tends to be, if I don’t want to walk out the door with it on, put it back. After shooting outside Junkman’s Daughter for this post, we browsed around inside. All of their clothes tend to be a little, shall we say, different, but that’s what I liked about this jacket. So I walked out the door with it on (after paying for it of course).

I’d been waiting to break out these faux leather leggings from Forever 21, assuming the temps in Atlanta would be fall-like. Not even close; they were in the 80’s. Let’s just say leather leggings aren’t very breathable :/

But as I was running around Little Five Points sweating my booty off, I met a fellow blogger, Jazzi, and we took some photos for her blog: Change of Seamery. Jazzi specializes in altering clothing and I can’t get over how cute her blog’s name is! Y’all will have to check it out.

Luckily, it’s looking like the warm weather is going to stick around until Halloween. I just need to find some blue knee-high socks to complete my Where’s Waldo costume and I’m ready for the festivities!


Pumpkin Pickin’













Dress: H&M (Old, similar here) Boots: Jessica Simpson Bag: Phillip Lim for Target Earrings: Junk In Me Trunk

I love doing all things Fall: haunted houses, college football games, and, of course, carving pumpkins. Last weekend, Kevin and I went to Scarrigan Farms, a haunted trail and corn maze that scared the crap out of us!

This weekend, we’re heading to my alma mater Auburn University to watch them play Florida Atlantic. I haven’t been on the Plains since April so I’m looking forward to returning to my old home.

So in the spirit of checking things off the list, we went to pick out our perfect pumpkin on Sunday. Now, time to get carving!


DIY Valentino-Inspired Studded Leather Clutch

I am becoming quite the proponent of upcycling… and studs… on everything! So after finding this black leather bag at my local Goodwill, I was inspired to create my own take on the Valentino RockStud Clutch. I searched high and low in my local craft stores and could not find studs. As it turns out, flatback beads and super glue work just as well, and it’s even easier to make! Just make sure the glue says that it works with leather.

I simply laid out the beads about a half inch from the edge of the clutch and began to glue. Keep in mind that a little glue goes a long way! If you put too much on the back of the bead, it will ooze out of the sides and dry white. No bueno. I would recommend using a q-tip to dot the glue on your bead before attaching it to the bag. Stud three sides like me or four like Valentino and voila! You’ve jazzed up a boring bag 🙂
