Outfit of the Day YAY

I might have mentioned this before but it is REALLY difficult to have an outfit of the day EVERY day. First reason, some days I am lazy, second reason, I may or may not repeat some of these outfits often, third reason, there are not many times I have to grab my camera during the day, find a nice place and set up a self timer.

But it makes it a lot easier when I have guy friends who dress well so that I can just call them to take a few pictures of me and for doing such a favor I include them in our blog! This time it was my friend Benjamin Armistead Conway, he deserves his full name out here in the cyber world. The way we met is pretty funny, but lets just say he now calls me Jackleen.

This is Benjamin Armistead Conway.

Here was my outfit:

I am wearing a pair of tights my mom got me from High Fashion Homes, my nine west boots, my dress is from Forever 21 (i do not shop their anymore, thank goodness ((They have major bad sweatshops)) ), The jacket is from I have no idea where… probably Marshalls, and the headband is my favorite part of the whole outfit!

The headband is new and is from a wonderfully little local vintage shop in San Antonio! This shop is called Montage and it is on the corner of E Grayson and St. Mary’s. It is sooo worth your visit! Not too expensive for vintage, but good quality with a personalized touch by the owner!
(She even made my headband herself!!)

—-have a wonderful week ^.^

Outfit of the Day

I recently got some feedback from readers (thank you) about more post ideas, one included outfit of the day’s!

This could be pretty fun because Nadeen and I have been told many times that we have similar taste but execute them very differently, so if we both get involved with this it might be pretty cool. I cannot guarantee doing this everyday but when I feel that I wear an outfit that deems worthy of me taking awkward pictures of myself, you will see it.

Today I was with a friend and he offered to take them for me! He alwaaaays dresses so well, actually one of my best dressed friends who is a male. (if any of my other guy friends read this, you also dress well! I am always impressed!)

So this was taken in my room next to my photo wall! I am currently working on this photo wall still but some of you readers just might recognize yourself!

In San Antonio today, it was dark, windy and rainy. The kind of day where you just want to cuddle up and watch movies all day. When I was not in class I watched James Bond marathon… However, this weather brought a cold front so it got into the low 50s today!!! Finally time for winter clothes (my semi favorite cause I love all clothes).

Today I wore: black skinny jeans ( value village ) Thank goodness for value village! Black little booties that are nine west, a grey loose long sleeve shirt that I got for $4 at a Gap sale! wooohoo Gap has awesome comfortable clothes but I cannot afford it so I usually wait for a good sale! The sad part about this shirt is that the FIRST time I wore it, a baby threw up on me. Yes, it happened. So there is a big stain on the chest, so it will always be covered by a scarf, but thats okay because today was scarf weather! My scarf and very similar grey colored sweater are from Buffalo Exchange!

Then it got beautiful outside! Still chilly but sunny and I could take off the sweater! I was still kind of cold though so it didn’t last long…

I thought it would be fun to also show a guys outfit of the day because I was with a friend who looked awesome! There might also be some male readers out there so yay for that!!

I don’t know what Matt is actually wearing but it sure does look good.

He is darn cute ain’t he?!

So if you ever need outfit advice, you can see that I may not always have it all together, but I do LOVE to pretend. Matt is also a great person who I can call (he lives on the floor below me) and he can race right up and help me pick out my outfits for date night with the boyfriend. He is boyfriends old roomate.
ALSO if you ever need inspiration on what to wear the bestbestbestbest website out there is lookbook.nu so go browse when you have hours to spare, because it hooks you. I even have a “lookbook I love” folder on my desktop… Should I be embarrassed by that..?

ALSO: any halloween costume ideas?!? tell me!

Here is one for a promise!

I really do plan to keep these promises so here is the first DIY post. In case this is your first trip to a blog, DIY means Do-It-Yourself. Our kind of DIY will relate to jewelry, clothing, and crafts. Sadly, school has been hectic and I have not had a lot of time to actually make anything that special besides a few art pieces, but this summer I had plenty of time on my hands. I will try my hardest to regurgitate how I made these, with fewer pictures than I would have liked, but for everything I make in the future I will remember to snag photos along the way.

1. Dip Dye Shirts:

This is a shirt I made for myself this summer. I got some inspiration from http://www.lookbook.nu but had no job this summer so I had to get crafty and make my own!

Steps:

– I went to my local thrift store, one that they have everywhere which is a good one is Goodwill. I found a thin white shirt that was my size.

– I tried on the shirt and marked where I want the sleeves to lay on my shoulders, then just cut em right off!

– For the dye, I went to a local craft store and bought RIT dye in the red color, any color works the same way.

– You mix the instructions on the package of the dye, and I took the bottom of the shirt and rolled it up and clipped it with a hanger

– I mixed the dye in a bucket so I could hang my shirt upside down in the bucket and lay the hanger over the top to rest because it will need to sit for a few hours.

– When it is finally done and you have washed it properly ( by itself in warm water ) it is time to stud!

– I bought my studs from http://www.etsy.com but there are local fabric or craft stores if you are as impatient as I am to get crafting. The studs are up to your own creativity, but I usually go for the collar area, and different studs have different application processes so look on the package they come in.

Here is another one I made when I started selling some of my crafts!

These are so fun to make on rainy days!
