Preview to the Preview

Yesterday I mentioned the 30 day remix I'm doing. Tomorrow I'm planning on posting the 30 items I've chosen, and then hopefully post pictures once a week of the outfits...let's say, on Mondays maybe?  Yeah, that will do.  I know you're all on the edge of your seats for this, I can tell from all 5 commenters yesterday.


If anyone's interested in joining me, that would be fun too.  You know you want to.   Let's inspire each other.  *tap, tap, tap*...I'm not sure anyone's even out there anymore...aw well, I'm pretty good at talking to myself anyways.


 I didn't wear this outfit today...it's from last week.  I'm just preparing you.  



You know what you will be seeing me wear a lot of?  These:


Why, you ask?  BECAUSE I MADE THEM MYSELF!  I found the idea through a blog that sells them.  I wanted to order one....very badly.  But remember I'm on Dave Ramsey's budget plan...meaning no cute necklace and bracelet for me.  Unless...I could figure out how to make it myself on the cheap.  I did.  A few hours and hot-glue-gun-burns later, I was done! It's not as perfect as the one I saw online.  But it's good enough.


And, in case you're the kind that doesn't budget, then I give you the glorious website, Allora Handmade, where you can buy it, in all it's glorious perfection.  And if you can't, just go look and adore, because seriously, that girl has some skill to make all those rosettes...my fingers hurt just thinking about it.

  5. Oh common! You have to post how you made the diy necklace and bracelet. I'm dying to make one myself, but don't have the creative ingenuity to figure out how you did it. Please?!

  9. I am so excited about this 30 day thing. I think you are starting to inspire me to do it too! We'll see :) And I LOVE the jewelry. Last fall a friend showed me how to create those roses, but all I could think to put them on was a pin. They work even better as jewelry! Can't wait to see more pics/inspiration!

  11. Hi! I've been lurking for a while but never commented before. Anyways I really enjoy your blog. I ready the 30 items post and recalled an article I had read a while ago. Check it out http://www.nytimes.com/2010/07/22/fashion/22SIXERS.html?_r=1 If you think this is hard, you will not believe what these people did!

  12. I'm wearing the same maternity clothes now for my third pregnancy. I am completely in need of a style remix...but I truly don't think I could remix anything from my maternity wardrobe or my regular wardrobe. I just need you to come by and start me all over...shop for me...on a budget...and find things that actually fit...and that are cute. Can you do that?!

  13. Sarah, I too am on a budget and love fashion. I am excited to see how this works for you and hopefully learn from your blog how to do this myself. Thanks for sharing:)

    By the way: I think I sent you email by mistake trying to leave a comment. Oops:)
