A Holiday Look

Shop Publik lace dress, studded clutch (from giveaway) // Forever 21 sheer shirt // Simply Vera chain necklace // Nordstrom polka dot tights // Lulu's studded shoes

Happy New Year! I actually had a whole bunch of holiday outfits planned but it looks like the holidays are just about over. Well, I might just post them later anyways! I won this dress and clutch in a giveaway a while ago and thought that they would be great for a holiday look. (Don't you love winning free stuff? I'm always jumping up and down whenever I find out that I've won something, even if it's just a pencil!) Well with the new year comes New Year's resolutions. I make pretty much the same resolutions every year, but still haven't done any of them! This year I'll aim to do more DIYs. I actually have a lot planned, but somehow always end up pushing them back till later. What are your New Year's resolutions?

A Little Gothic

Thrifted Kirna Zabete at Target dress worn as outerwear // Floral lace shirt, studded collar c/o Oasap // Kohl's vertical stripe skirt // Forever 21 tights // Steve Madden shoes
Merry Christmas! I hope everyone's having a great holiday season so far! :) I was planning on posting this outfit along with the previous post (here) to do a "one dress, two ways" kind of post, but I never really had the time to take pictures for this outfit until now. I love how this dress can be completely unzipped, so I often wear it as a vest/jacket. Also, I thought I had ordered this collar in white, but I must have accidentally ordered it in black. I had a completely different look planned using the white collar, but I changed it to match the black one. This look's more gothic than what I usually wear, but I thought that the style fit the collar well. I might give the collar away to anyone who's interested, just shoot me a message. It'll be a Christmas present from me. :) And with that, happy holidays! Eat lots, sleep lots, and take full advantage of all the holiday sales!

DIY Ankle Strap Flats

Thrifted Vince cardigan, Kirna Zabete at Target dress // Vintage Ralph Lauren plaid shirt // Romwe statement necklace thanks to Ocrun // Bamboo glitter flats from 2020Ave

As much as I love DIYs, I rarely actually do any. Although I'm calling this a DIY, it's so easy that it might not even qualify! I love ankle strap flats but haven't yet found an affordable version. I bought these flats on sale on Cyber Monday (for only $4!) especially for this project. I took the ankle straps out of my studded heels from this post. They were removable to begin with so I can reattach them any time. I simply tied the ankle straps around my ankles and then put on the flats. Done! I didn't connect the ankle straps to the flats in any way, but they still work great. Haha, but this is just about my limit for difficulty as far as DIYs go!
