Last week, thanks to a tip from someone on Makeupalley, I stumbled across a fantastic blog about fashion & DIY - a few of my favorite things - LoveMaegan. Maegan is one crafty broad, and she made her own version of one of the most stunning shoes I've ever beheld, the Louboutin Petal Sandal:
Mine pale in comparison to both the CLs AND Maegan's version, but I'm still happy with them, and it was a nice way to spruce up my old strappy sandals for all of $3 in materials.

Today is all about new accessories. The glasses were an eBay find - I was looking for a quirky-but-not-over-the-top pair of vintage frames, and found these Laura Biagiottis. The belt is vintage as well & came from Etsy. If you look closely at the buckle, it's four panthers, butting heads. It has kind of a Gucci feel to it. The bag, you may have noticed, is my second Rebecca Minkoff Morning After clutch. I've been carrying my green one like crazy, and it really is the perfect bag - it fits a ton of stuff for a clutch, yet it's not cumbersome like most of my huge bags. The shoulder strap makes it so functional, so really, I *needed* another one in red. Finally, the shoes (which are hidden in the full length pics...I really need to shorten these pants one day) are from the best DSW I've ever been to. It's across the street from where I work (dangerous), and I never went until Friday. It's gigantic & has the best selection...it took a lot of soul-searching to leave with only this one pair.
