"Disorder and Disarray"

IMG_0127 As promised, here is the outfit I wore to style the denim jacket I upcycled in yesterday's DIY! To avoid wearing double denim, I paired it with my leather skater skirt which also gave a nice contrast of textures. In order to not let the look get too feminine, I laced up my Sk8-Hi's and really like how the look turned out.

Today I chose a Rancid song for today's outfit because of the patch on my jacket. Listen along to one of my favorites, "Disorder and Disarray" while you view here!

In case you noticed, yes I did upgrade to a new camera. If you're interested, I chose the Canon Rebel T3i. It's only been a few days, but I would definitely recommend it if you are in the market!

DIY_Patched Denim Jacket + Video

DIY INTRO Today I've got a classic DIY project for you, a patched denim jacket. While you may know how to sew on a patch, I wanted to share the little patch collection I've been building for a few months now, and how my final product turned out! I was also wanting to play around with my new camera now that I could record HD video, and this seemed to be the perfect project to start with! Check out my video, or see the photos of my jacket below!

I picked up this jacket over the summer at Goodwill. You may remember it from this outfit post!

Thanks so much for reading! I'll be back tomorrow with an outfit post wearing my jacket!

OOTD_64: "New Sensation"

DSC_0201 I wore this outfit the other night to go out to dinner and the movies with my best frand. We had a lot of fun getting dressed up and going to Culinary Dropout. I was happy with this outfit because the jacket kept it casual enough while also keeping me warm outdoors. I also die for any chance to wear my favorite vintage LBD. I finished the look with some edgy accessories and shoes and was off!

The track for today's outfit is "New Sensation" by This Time Next Year, as recommended by Jake. Listen along while you view! [soundcloud url="http://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/390086" params="" width=" 100%" height="166" iframe="true" /]

DSC_0063 The highlight of today's post is my top. These DIY skull tees have been popular in the past, both on my blog and when I wear them out. I have decided to start selling them, and I have 4 available on my Etsy store! They are made from vintage fabrics, and I hope to experiment with even more prints in the future. I'm loving this aztec print and how it can be styled casually or more dressed up as you can see in this outfit. Check out some of my past outfit posts wearing handmade skull tees here, here, here, and here!

Also, Happy New Years Eve! What are you planning to wear tonight? I'm thinking of pairing a black dress with the jacket from this outfit. I'll try to photograph it if it's not too dark, but if not, check out my dream New Years Eve outfits up on my new Polyvore! Finally, be safe tonight! xo
