Christmas time is almost here.

Wearing: Thrifted vest, AE white button-up, F21 shorts, bordeaux stockings from TJ Maxx, Bandalino boots, Longchamp doctor bag

Started decorating our place with little pieces of "Christmas." We strung ornaments onto our miniature tree, lit some candles, hung our stockings, all while listening to classic Christmas oldies. The place looks ten times cheerier and it definitely puts me into the Christmas spirit! Yes, Thanksgiving hasn't even come yet and we're already getting prepared...I have much to be thankful to God for, even though I throw in an occasional complaint here and there.

DIY ribbon necklaces

I was inspired by the beautiful (but pricey) ribbon link necklace from the Anthropologie catalog. I decided to buy several spools of ribbon and re-create my own version of a "ribbon-link" necklace. It took some time, but I was quite delighted with the results! I intend on making more when I'm bored and in the mood for experimenting. 


  1. Awesome vest and really nice work on the ribbon link necklace! It looks so intricate.

  2. loving the snow globe picture! you kept the lighting simple yet effective! awesome! btw Christmas = ? hahaha.

  3. That vest is so great! Did you rework it in any way (i.e., the chains) or did you find it in that condition? Your whole outfit is adorable.

  4. Wow, that's amazing!!! I completely agree that thrifting is like hunting for treasures. My boyfriend and I had a conversation the other day about the addiction I have to it and he concluded that although I love clothes in general, the reason I LOVE thrifting so much is for the thrill of the chase, knowing that you can find such amazing pieces if you really look hard and the feeling you get after finding something fabulous! I'm sure you feel the same way :)

  5. P.S. Most of the color in my pictures is natural, but I occasionally re-work it a bit with They have really cool effects.

  6. Ack, I totally want to make this! It's perfect for the holidays. Great job!
