Trying out Tuesday

 Top - Target newstock, thrifted
Skirt - Versace Jean Couture, thrifted
Necklace - via Mom
Paris Pumps - John Fluevog

 As many of you have noticed, I've redone my header. I've been planning a space themed layout for awhile now. The final piece of inspiration came from this awesome skirt. I love stars, and I saw this skirt peeking out of the racks at Goodwill. I ran down the aisle and checked the tag and the size - Major Score! I had to wear it right away.

I also borrowed some jewelry from my mom this weekend. I don't have tons of room for jewelry/accessory storage and my mom has some of the coolest jewelry that she's accumulated over the years. In particular, I took home this adorable single lizard earring and the hematite necklace above.

Top - H&M, thrifted
Jeans - thrifted, altered
Sandals - Liz Claiborne, thrifted
Sew Sunday I hemmed some jeans. The William Rast Target jeans I thrifted became a pair of capris. I'm really not big on shorts, but sometimes like capris. I don't remember when I wore this outfit, but I think it was before Fruits Week. It's simple, but I liked it enough that I wanted to document wearing it.

Seriously, I'm hiding those white sandals from myself - otherwise, I'll wear them everyday. ---->


  1. Cute lizard! My favourite earrings are a pair of big gold hoops that my mom had in the seventies. Moms have the greatest stuff!

  2. Lucky girl...my mom was never into jewelery or clothes...she always gets my hand-me-downs ;)!

    I love your new skirt. It's perfect!

  3. Oooooooh! I like your new header!

  4. Oh my heavens, your new header is SUPER cool! So very YOU, I love it!

    I especially like the capri outfit, that top is adorable. You look awesome!

  5. haha I love your blog header - very unique - kinda like I rule the world :)

  6. As always, another great score at the thrift store on the skirt.

    Your floral top is really cute too. I wish I was crafty. My sewing machine just sits and collects dust, ha ha!

  7. @ Style Journey - Mine mostly does, but I do drag it out for quick and dirty alterations. I have to hem 90% of my pants and take up straps a lot.

  8. Love the lizard - so cute! I used to take a small lizard (stuff) everywhere with me, because my high school boyfriend gave it to me. (And by everywhere, I mean when I went on trips... I didn't take it to school... I wasn't THAT weird)

  9. love this outfit! that thrifted shirt and skirt are so perfect together! what great finds. you put this together perfectly.


  10. That top is just perfect for you. Love the strong lines of it.

  11. Love the new header!! And love the outfits! The grey skirt and black/grey top go so perfectly together, and of course the classic pumps are just the perfect addition! The floral top is so adorable too :)

  12. That skirt is insanely cool and I love your mom's necklace! Your new header is awesome! It's like you're controlling the whole world!

  13. I love that skirt - too, too awesome. So perfect with your 'Vogs! Someday, somehow, we have to go thrifting together!
