Fashion, Food, Desserts, being a 30-something mom is exciting!

Rawr!

So, I threw on this sweater, and had intended to wear a crazy striped skirt, just for lots of color.

But I felt like, well, I don’t really have words for it. It was just bad. Super super bad. So I pulled out the brown pleated Kenneth Cole skirt I’ve worn recently and just made it work. I do think it’s time to rotate the closet again!

I didn’t carry a bag with me, just my keys and wallet today.

But I did finish these, striped strassed Manolo Blahnik flats.

Before:

After I painted them:

And all done:

I used a custom blend of lumiere paints, and the following Preciosa crystal colors:
In corresponding order of stripe, and then it repeats
Violet & Violet AB
Light Sapphire & Light Sapphire AB
Green Tourmaline
Jonquil & Jonquil AB
Green Tourmaline AB

I use Gem-Tac for my glue, but I’m sure there is something better out there. Since I do these for my sole enjoyment, I’m not really worried about crystal loss, as I can attend to that if needed.

Hope your weekend was grand! The kids are off for the holiday tomorrow, and the weather looks very promising. I am ready for the 30 degree and under weather to go bye bye. I’m not a fan of being all bundled up!

Until next time,

Jules
