I've Been Flower-ed

Thursday, August 13, 2009
That's right... I gave in to the power of the flower necklace trend. Thanks to The Sartorialist...love Maegan, and This Time Tomorrow, it was too easy of a DIY not to.

And I can't forget Wal-Mart. I think it cost me about $5 to make this. I found a lot of this in their clearance craft section. Yeah...who knew?!? The necklace you see here is actually half the size of what it used to be. I cut off some attention-grabbing flowers.
