First post of 2014
Wow, 7 days in 2014, and I am FINALLY returning to my sadly neglected blog. In my defense, I have been fighting an upper respiratory infection since before Christmas, so I’ve been resting when not working or running kids around. I did spend the first day of the year in PJs doing nadda! Even now my Christmas decor is still up.
Anyway, to recap some outfits I’ve thrown together this year:
Cardigan: Ann Taylor
Shoes: Christian Louboutin
Necklace: Juicy Couture
(All clothing items Thrifted)
Blouse: Nanette Lepore
Shoes: Strassed Manolo Blahniks (more below about these!!)
And this outfit I repeated, I loved the combo so much!
Cardigan: Kate Spade
Dress: Calvin Klein
Shoes: Strassed Manolo Blahniks
Handbag: Kate Spade
In addition to feeling poorly, I also managed to pull something in my neck. Partly from how I was sleeping, and partly from completing my most recent project in less than two days. (Hey, I was determined to finish them!!)
Before, plain gold Manolos (in need of some tlc)
After being painted with several different colours:
I used the following stone colours:
Light Sapphire AB
Light Rose AB
I am so very pleased with how they turned out. I have another pair of Manolo flats in the same general shape that I am thinking of doing something similar but different on. Haven’t decided. I do have plans to do a crystal AB heel this year, as I do not have one yet. We shall see.
I have placed myself on a strict no-buy for this month (fashion-related), however I did cheat yesterday a wee bit. But it was a vintage item I bought to resell, so I could not resist. Otherwise I am staying out of thrift shops and OFF eBay (with the exception of selling items!!!). It’s time to streamline a bit!
Keep your eyes out, I have a really fun giveaway planned for later in the month!
Until next time,
