OOTD_98 "The Number of the Beast"

DSC_1249 One of my favorite items in my closet has to be this Iron Maiden muscle tee that I got off of eBay a while back. As always, eBay never lets me down and the seller that sold me the shirt actually messaged me and asked me if I wanted 2 more. Of course I snagged them up (for 5 bucks each) and am styling one today. I paired it will this sheer skull blouse. This is the first time I've worn it unbuttoned over another top but I'm loving it!

The track for today's outfit is "The Number of the Beast" by Iron Maiden, of course. Listen along here while you view!

OOTD_92 "Dashboard"

DSC_0929 I said in yesterday's outfit post that I thought my vests were going to get a lot of wear this spring, and here I am to prove it!

This outfit was inspired after I watched this "5 Grungy Outfits" video by Claire from heyclaire.com. I think she has great style that is minimal but still edgy and exciting at the same time.

The track for this outfit is "Dashboard" by Modest Mouse that has a laid back vibe for this lazy Saturday. Listen along below while you view!

I also wanted to mention the story behind this graphic tee. For the longest time I considered buying this sweater version from Urban but could never justify the price tag. I ended up finding this similar top at Target for 8 bucks in the men's section. Sometimes you can find the perfect thing in the most unexpected places!

DIY_Removable Boot Tassels

DSC_0954 Fringe is an embellishment that I want on a lot of my accessories such as purses and shoes, but sometimes I want a cleaner, simpler look as well. This DIY is perfect for that! Make these fringe tassels for your favorite plain ankle boots, but the best part? They're just attached with duct tape so they are 100% removable and reusable. Win win.

I learned how to make these from one of the best DIY blogs P.S. I made this. Check out the simple tutorial here and check out my results below!

The only supplies you will need are some faux leather, scissors, and duct tape. I had some faux leather left over from this DIY clutch, but you can find it at fabric stores. P.S. my ankle boots are from Target!

And here is my finished product! I am so excited about these and the fact that I can take them off when they don't exactly work with my outfit.

SHOE UNBOXING_Target Moccasins

so...im LOVING the Mossimo brand moccasins I picked up from Target recently. As you may have seen in my August Favorites post (here) I had been wanting some moccasins because I really didn't have any brown shoes in my wardrobe and I needed some cozy and comfortable footwear for fall. I had seen some Minnetonka brand mocs on sale at TJ Maxx and while I was excited about the deal, they just weren't the color or style I wanted. That's why I was so excited to find these at Target for only 20 bucks! I love the color, the fact that they are booties, and the fringe and braid detail around the ankles. I have already been wearing these almost every night when I go to my studio at night--so I highly recommend them!
