Uniform

So this is basically my uniform. Some form of tee shirt by American Apparel, Alternative Apparel or Target, jeans, and boots or loafers.

I try and keep it from being boring by adding interesting jewelry and a great bag.

I really like the way these two necklaces fit together. The bird is by Love Erin Designs (should have a couple in the store very soon!) and the multi-chain is by Haute Hardware.

The bird is an almost every day wear for me, and I love that the Haute Hardware piece has both gold and silver chains in it, I can wear it with anything!

Erin over at Haute Hardware made the bag for me. I love it. I was crazy for the tapestry version of the Gucci Hysteria bag and this is a great tribute. I still have to add buttons to the handles, and I picked those up today. I am going to go with a cluster versus the one BIG button on the original bag.

The fabric is upholstery fabric I picked up at JoAnnes. I had to order it. And then Erin drew the pattern for the bags and whipped them up. I really love it.

So that’s my basic day to day right now. It’s not super exciting. But I’m jazzing it up the best I can. I’d love to just wear some of my great dresses, but my dog, who I AODRE, sheds, like nothing I’ve ever seen, and he would ruin them with cuddles. So I don’t!

I absolutely love the bag and your necklace! How beautiful and intricate.

I really enjoy your blog and put a link to it on my blog (Udarata Kella) ... if you don't mind? :o)

Love the bag -- I saw the Gucci resemblance right away.

I don't know if I've commented before, but I've been reading for a while. So....hi!

Your hair color especially shines through in this post, and it's so lovely! That's basically my "uniform" for weeks at a time too.

It's so good to have you back - the blog world has missed you horribly!

I saw someone wearing one of your bird necklaces on another blog and checked the store for one. Can you add a couple maybe after my pay day next Friday?! Cheeky, eh?!

Oh, and LOVE the hair colour.

LOVE the bag! It is perfect with the simple tee/jeans outfit. Also, the mix of necklaces looks great!

I love the new hair color.

How sad are you that Steve & Barry's shut down. I'm still in shock. I sometimes cry at night.

Your hair looks amazing...am loving the color! I like the way you mix the necklaces for your "uniform."

That t-shirt looks amazing on you. If I looked that good in a t-shirt and jeans, I'd wear them all the time too!

That purse turned out amazing--the fabric looks so expensive!

I really think your hair looks fantastic too. I hope you like it better by now.

<3~!

I do love the bag and I think that jeans and tee shirt is a great uniform.

Boots by GAP kids?? What size shoe do you wear?
