Meet my latest prize - these adorable grass-green sunglasses! I happened to win top model at the 4-H Fashion Review last year, and won a gift certificate sponsored by a local fashion retail shop, Eve's Leaves.
Enter my new summer style icon! ♥ So in love with them...
Part Snow White, part contemporary, this outfit was largely inspired by the ribbon lacing on the back of my blouse. I took some satin ribbon and threaded it through a large needle, then drew it through the back of the blouse in an 'X' pattern twice, one on top of the other. This is a great way to bring in a blouse that's too baggy - I modified this one several years ago.
It also adds a beautiful fairytale-inspired feel to an ordinary top!
I was also inspired by my hairstyle, which is merely a part down the center, then twisted on each side in a spiral and very loosely pinned. I thought it looked a little like Snow White's 'do, especially when I added a little bow on top =)
Yes, my nose is quite red... I was pretty much frozen numb by that point... Can you believe the snow (or lack thereof) around here? It's unreal! The air is still cold as all get-out, though... :)
Today is my dog's birthday! Leroy is quite a part of our family, as we grew up with her since we were all puppies. Yes, Leroy is a girl. Let your ten year old bro name a female puppy while he's all crazy about Encyclopedia Brown, and see what you get...
She's also a day older than one of my sisters.
We're going to have a taffy-pull and homemade eggnog tomorrow! =D
Happy twelve, puppers. And many more.
Hoping your day was marvelous - What creative inspiration did you find today?
