No, I don't Want Your Number, No, I Don't Want to Give You Mine

I went out last night with my co-workers for a little karaoke. I sang "Slow" by Kylie Minogue and then more yelled than sang things like "9 to 5" and "No Scrubs". I wore this...

I can't compete with an Alexander Wang cross body with rose gold studs. I just can't. But I can still come up with something pretty awesome. Stephanie pulled this Fossil bag for me at work, and placed it on my hold. It was missing a rivet on the left side, so I simply popped the rivet off the right side and added spikes up both sides.





It actually came out pretty awesome if I do say so myself. It's basically perfect now and at $30.00 for the whole thing I couldn't be more pleased. Sometimes the Goodwills here charge more than that for ripped and stained Fossil bags, so it was a great price!

I just referenced "No Scrubs" in a conversation with friends the other day - Hilarious. TLC keeps popping up in my life lately. Don't know what that should mean :)

Seriously rockin' outfits - and like Sal said about your bag, that is some amazing wizardry on display!!

You look great! and I really like what you did with the spikes.. I'm thinking of studding one of my blazers.. it'd be one of my first diy projects.

Coming (briefly) out of lurkerdom to say that think that ram/goat ring is actually a dragon.

As always, great get-up!
