Flash of Talent

Tank - August Silk, swap
Printed pants - Sandra King, thrifted, slimmed
Flats - United Nude
Earrings - vintage shop

Woo! What a start to this week. I got a package in the mail from Tamera with some great new ties. I've already gotten a few new belts put together today, go check 'em out here. These will probably be the last few pre-made belts I'll have up for the end of summer. Any further belts will have to be requested, so if you see something you like - shoot me an email!

I also got a call this afternoon for a possible job painting a wedding chapel sign. I may not be able to do the 9-to-5, but I do love using my skills to create things. 

Bonus outfit - this is what I wore yesterday after the morning crash. I've been wearing my jeans a lot more often. I'm so tired of having to dress around wearing as little as possible - I miss layers and boots and crisp fall breezes. I tried to incorporate what I'm missing with this fab little vest I thrifted. I almost didn't get it, but I am so glad I did because it gave me a good excuse to wear the obi I lovingly call the Frankenbelt.

Tank - Target
Vest - thrifted
Belt - MMD
Jeans - American Eagle, gift
Textile Flats - Cydwoq

MMD accessory of the day: Beth is wearing her obi belt with a gorgeous houndstooth shift. Don't miss this look!


  1. Love the turquoise with the patterned pants - what fun!

  2. Oh, it's those great pants again. I love the colour pairing; it's one of my favourites, and one I need to revisit soon.

    Try not to wilt, and I will wish for cooler weather heading your way!

  3. Blue and red is such a great combo.

  4. That blouse looks SO good on you! I finally caved and bought patterned capri pants very on sale last week, but still not as exciting as these.

    Frankenbelt? Pretty like Benny?
