Next DIY - Studded Shorts

As soon as I saw this, I knew it'd be my next DIY. I have a bunch of silver studs laying around anyways!

Of course I won't exactly copy hers, but this is a great inspiration!


Hello world,
Today has been one hell of a day, but at least it's CYBER MONDAY!

For those of you who have no idea what the hell I am talking about, it's just a super sale day for online stores, hence the "cyber" monday.


I just realized I had 25$ just sitting around, and I didn't buy ANYTHING on Black Friday or over the weekend. So, I thought I'd treat myself to at least some cute things! My favorite store for cute things = FOREVER21! My lucky day, TODAY THEY HAVE FREE SHIPPING!

The first thing I did was shop the "outfits". I love seeing how F21 puts different clothing pieces together; it's so inspiring sometimes!

I found this dress:

It's so cute! It came in silver, black, and blue. Black works well on me, so I went with what I knew. Safe bet, ya know? Only $15.50?! STEAL!
(buy it HERE)

After snooping around more outfits, I wasn't really feeling anything else. So, I thought I'd try my luck at the "new arrivals" section. Hell, maybe something would be on sale that was cute. I was right! Look how cute this LOVE tee is! & only for 6$?!? You can't go wrong with that price!

It's so cute & I love all the love quotes on it.
(buy it HERE)

I was thinking about getting another dress or shirt for cheap, but after a while, I thought I'd spread out my mini shopping spree to hit all angles. I got a shirt, a dress, what's next? An ACCESSORY of course!
How cute is this silver sequins waste belt?! GOTTA LOVE IT! I've been looking for something I can wear with all the stuff I already have, that has some bling & HELLO LOOK AT ME fash to it. & for only $3.50, I just had to buy it!
(buy it HERE)

I hope everyone has a wonderful day of shopping!!!

Happy Weekend

Hello world,

I've had one hell of a few days. I went to the ER last night b/c I had a migraine so bad! I hope to get those DIY pics up as soon as I get back to school. I would do them tonight, but I have to pack and do wash to get ready to go back tomorrow. Sorry loves.

Look how cute these jeans are!

I love how you can see the pockets! Very hot.

Well, I gotta go pack up all my stuff. I'm going back to school today!
Good news about that is that I'll get my good digital camera charged and ready to take pics for you!

Have a great lazy day!

Hey everyone,

I would like to apologize for some stuff. I know I said I would be posting lots of stuff over break and I'm sorry I haven't. I've been dealing with a lot of drama and family stuff ever since I've been back from college. Today is Thanksgiving, so I prolly can't do any DIYs today. :(

On a side note: until I find my digital camera charger, cell phone pictures will have to do for any DIYs I post for a while. :-/


Mixing leather and fur: GENIUS!!!!!

Agree? (Picture credit: Fashion Canvas)

These shoes are so cute! I really like the mix of different patterns.

After surfing my daily blogs, I kept seeing this dress on about every other one! Just had to share it.

It's from Nasty Gal.
I'm not exactly sure if I would ever wear it cuz I don't think I can pull off the bold shoulders trend. But, I could see myself DIYing it with an old dress I don't like anymore, or even possibly a cheap dress from goodwill!

I know I haven't really posted my "DIYables", but they are on the right side of my page. They are smaller pictures, but if you click them I think they open up big. From now on, I will post what I would like to DIY, then put it in the slideshow on the side, okay?

I just found this awesome zipper necklace via OutsaPop (I loveeee that blog).

Designer: Louise Loewenstein

I've been looking for sequins everywhere, but my Hobby Lobby/Micheal's is hiding everything from me lately, I swaer. If I ever find any that I like, this will be the dress I'll prolly DIY! It's so gorgeous!

This is like a perfect party outfit!

Alright, alright. Last discovery sharing for the day.
If you haven't already visited Karen's blog, I highly suggest that you should.
She's an amazing fashionista! & most of her outfits consist of thrifted clothing!

This jacket is absolutely amazing!!! I wish I lived where she did with all the vintage/second-hand stores she has the advantage of shopping at all the time.
I'm extremely jealous!


Last night, instead of going to bed, I decided to DIY stud something instead. A few days ago I took my boyfriend's old, completely studded belt, and de-studded it (is that the correct term?) using a needle nosed pliers. A frustrated and bloody fingered Kelsey later, I got all the studs out. Close to 150 big, pyramid studs to be exact. I put them in a baggy and they've been sitting on my dresser for only a day. I found an old, black, cropped blazer in my closet! I nearly jumped up and down for joy when I found it. It's was the perfect canvas I needed to try out studding :D
I didn't finish it all, but I did take pictures along the way using my cell phone. If I have time tonight, I will prolly finish it, and wear it out shopping tomorrow.

I'M WAKING UP EARLY AND GOING OUT ON BLACK FRIDAY! I may not have a lot of money to shop, but it's still a memorable experience! All I really need are some black, leather boots. I think I'll hit up Shoe Carnival for those; its BOGO, so maybe I'll get 2 pairs!?! :)

I hope you all have a great thanksgiving! I'm going to go pick up my best friend and we're going to play games until dinner!

Up & Coming

Well as you can see this blog is kinda coming along, right? :/

I'm trying to get all the blogs I follow linked up, and in the process I'm linking them to my rss feed in my apple mail (which is freaking sweet btw). During this process I keep getting distracted and reading the last 25 posts and such of each new blog I add. Whoops! haha

Thanksgiving break started this past Friday and doesn't end until Dec 3. YAY! I need a long break. During that time, I'll prolly be really getting this blog going. I hope to have whoever reads, love it. Also while I'm at home, I'll have time to actually do some DIY projects, or DIYables as I like to call them. I have a slide show on the right of the blog with pictures of inspiring things I'd love to DIY at some point in time. When I do DIY them, I'll take them off there, and figure out a way to show the inspiration and my DIY version of it easily for you all to see. :)

While I was looking around, I found these.

these are soooooo hot! they look like a bitch to walk in though....
I super heart statement shoes!
(thanks to Crystal Baller for the image)

So earlier today I was looking at some images from the recent runway fashion, and fashion in general, and of course, the trend is studs and chains. Bondage pretty much. I was thinking about how awesome summer is going to be if that's still in style! Think of the cute studded/chained bikinis?! Well, I found one! :)

(thanks to Crystal Baller for the image)

I'm on a stud and shoe roll today. I just found these shoes at Victoria's Secret here.

a near must have. If only there was a rating system for how comfortable shoes are!

I'm sorry I haven't been posting much like I promised over beak. Being home for this long is kinda...overwhelming? Yeah, that's the word.

I did, in fact, last night finish my first clutch purse. At the moment, I'm not sure if I want to add a cute little wrist chain for carrying purposes, or if I just wanna leave it the way it is. I used it today, totally adorable. I'll use it again tomorrow when I go out cuz I don't feel like carrying my huge purse.

Tomorrow I have a massage appointment at 11:30 and then a hair appt at 4. Idk what I'm going to do with my hair yet, hmmmmm. I'll be sure to post before and after pictures though!

Have a great night everyone!

My First Post!

Hello world!

So what is this blog about? Good question!
As of now, I really don't know. I guess that's untrue, it's going to be about anything I feel like posting. I would love to post about fashion, what I wear, what I've made/DIY, makeup & hair tutorials, etc. I know there are many blogs out there like that, but hey, every one's is different, right?

I don't have much time on my hands at the moment, so this is the clean & neat frosty pinkish layout I'll have until I have time to actually crate one that goes with my site's theme, whatever it ends up being.

My name is Kelsey and I'm a freshmen in college. I'm currently studying design and applying for the Integrated Studio Arts design program at my college. What do you I wanna do after college? DESIGN!!! Obv. Preferably Eco-Friendly-Based design. I love giving new life to old things. I also love recycling stuff into something completely different than it's original purpose.

I won't be posting much of the whole "what I wore" pictures until January. This is because as of now, I live in the dorms and my roommate and I don't get along. I am most likely getting an apartment next semester! *happy dance* So I'll be able to do what I want, when I want. && I'll have uber space to do it in! I will take pictures of what I wear on the days I don't wear sweats.

I have this dying desire to be a model, but there are two problems, one that cannot be solved. The first is my weight--I'm simply not thin enough to be a model; my hips are also genetically wide. The second, insolvable, problem is my height; sadly, I'm only 5'6". Hey, maybe a day will come when a girl like me will be able to professionally model. :)

I guess that's all I have to really say right now. I have a lot of reading to do!

I hope people actually read this thing at some point in time!
