Another remake from the Carolinas!! PS, apologies for the tragicness going on on my head right now. Quick pre-shoot barrette move, not so good.
Pink jacket time!!
I got it mostly because of the Carmen Marc Valvo tag.
For a buck I just couldn't resist. It fit me well, but it wasn't something I'd actually choose to wear. It needed some punch, so that's what I gave it. To the moon, Alice!!
There were these embellished flowers (or what looked like flowers) on the top which triggered an idea.
I grabbed some paint and decided to fill a few of these flowers in. I love the magenta, so I figured a soft pink and green shade would work well.
I set up my paint station and grabbed some Q-Tips (they were small enough to fit in the shapes)...
...and began to paint away!!
I picked a few flowers on each side to fill in, keeping the pattern more random. Once the pink was filled in, I went to the green next.
After letting the piece sit in the sun and dry out for a few hours, it was finished and ready to go!!
I loved the extra bit of character the paint gave. It really turned a simple piece into something really special. I wore it proud as I made dinner for the whole NC family. Lots of fish tacos, cilantro lime rice, and margaritas!!
I had to bring a little taste of California out with me. Best part is that we've got leftovers! Breakfast burritos anyone?
