Pistachio Flavor

 
Button down - Gap, thrifted
Ankle Pants - LOFT, gift
Flats - Frye, ebay

Woohoo! What an exciting day. Yesterday a reader contacted me for a bundle of buttonflowers and a custom obi belt. As I was leaving the house to pick up materials, there was a huge downpour. It didn't do much to push back the heat today though so I stuck with a basic cotton sleeveless shirt and these ankle pants my mom got for me last autumn. The colors of these pants define what I like to wear in summer - greens, blues, browns, and creams. This shirt is the color of my favorite ice cream flavor - Pistachio! (No almonds, please).

I picked up enough materials to actually make two obi belts. I've wanted more practice making them. This is good news because I'm offering this obi belt for $15 shipped (within the US) if anyone is interested in it. It's in navy blue with dots and ombre blues with stripes. V*gan friendly fabrics too.

Also if you've been on the fence for buttonflowers - I'm offering a $5 grab bag this week (ending on Sunday). The grab bag will get you one large, one medium and one mini buttonflower in your color choices.

As if you needed more convincing - you should go check out Beth's buttonflower corsage on her blog.

Stick around this weekend for an announcement, Keely and I have cooked up a new Fashion Challenge. It's been too long since our last one! Hopefully it'll give us the kick of inspiration we need.

  1. Fashion challenge time? Hooray!! Yes, I was just thinking it should be time for another one!! You guys must have read my mind. :)

    Also, pistachio equals yum. And yes, your outfit reminds me of pistachio but in a very good way. And I love the obi belts, that may be another purchase coming from me soon. Thanks for featuring my "corsage"!

    1. Your obis are getting better and better - that one is lovely! I need to wear my blue/yellow one again soon!

      I can't wait to see what the fashion challenge is, although I probably won't be able to participate due to my own capsule challenge. I'm totally excited about June's; I gathered everything and did a quick analysis for orphans last night. I'll be featuring the preview pictures tomorrow night!

      Love the green top. I like pistachio...with pistachios, of course!

  2. Wonderful colours, all. I seem to be very blue-focused this summer, but I'm sure that'll change as time wears on.

    Looking forward to hearing of the new challenge!

  5. I'm fashion challenged, count me in! :)

    Last night, instead of my book, I read your first posts. I only do this with bloggers I like a lot. I loved seeing how you got started, and then seeing your incredible style evolve. Can't wait to thrift with you next week!
