Crochet Me

Thursday, March 18, 2010
Ahhh...I'm going to wear out this skirt until it's nothing but rags!! I need to make another pronto. Notice something cute about my outfit today? Answer:  my new necklace. I won it from a giveaway Beatrice was having on her blog! I can't believe I won it - it is too cute!! What do you think? Do you like it??

Ebony interviewed me a little bit ago and I kept forgetting to mention it! Check it out - you'll see me in a BAND UNIFORM. I know you're all jealous ;).

  3. Love the necklace, it's very cute!

    And the best thing about making your own clothes is that you can wear them out and then just make another! I think I'm going to tackle that skirt when I get the chance, it looks so comfy.

  10. Hello, friend! I am behind on visiting and commenting and I have missed seeing your great outfits.

    The juxtapostion of lace and leather here is so awesome. In fact, Stevie Nicks and Don Henley did a great song about that!

    I love this look on you. You always look incredible!

  63. What a great little feature on you on Ebony's blog. You ARE hardcore playing in the marching band (I am totally tone deaf).

    Nice pop of color with that bag and I am lovin' the faux leather bomber, it helps to toughen everything up.

  66. hey elaine how do you do your bangs like that? I was trying to explain to my hairdresser what I wanted but I don't think she really got it. I like the side part in the bangs, but I still basically want my entire forehead covered, and just the bottom sweeping over a little. Pretty much what you are doing. Thanks!!
