Yeah, so this one is most definitely added to the “more uncomfortable vintage finds” list. It’s a whole lotta polyester!

Polyester with a big ol’collar and a zipper down the front! Also there’s a few belt loops with nothing to put inside…

From behind…

Kind of itchy, seriously heavy, and without a whole ton of awesomeness going on.

Zipper times!

Zhevonne’s NDAD Creation

I loved this necklace that Zhevonne submitted! Anything that inspires you on Pinterest that you can recreate on your own is always the way to go. See her lovely creation!

I made one of these for an art project and because it turned out so cool, I made another one! I saw a version of this on Pinterest and thought I could create a copycat. Now here it is :) It’s a button necklace made with buttons, felt and chain. Super easy!

I used buttons from my stash and then bought a few from the craft store for RM 0.30 cent a button. It’s basically USD zero or something, LOL! I began by pinning the buttons to a piece of felt.

When I saw this dress, at first look I thought it could have been a blanket.

It was sitting in a pile of clothes and all I saw was the shiny yellow quilted skirt, yet still it had to be mine.

No bueno on the length

I thought it just needed some simple length adjustment…

Weekend Teaser!

Hi friends!! I’ve been traveling this week so I’m a bit behind on posting, but I wanted to give you a teaser on what to look forward to over the next few days.

This mustard yellow dress is a total delight. The skirt is thick and quilty, the color is perfect for this time of year, but it needs a bit of help.
