Make it your own

Wednesday, December 15, 2010
Sorry, not really in the mood to be funny and witty. Maybe next year. I just want McDonald's. I never thought I'd tell the whole world that but right now it's true...and sad. Anyway, this is what I wore today. I was inspired by this outfit. I made it my own by adding the broach and the beanie.

Close up...because I know there will at least be one of you complaining that you can't see my pictures. You're welcome.

  35. Lovely brooch. Do you ever have little holes in your shirts from the pins though? That's my biggest deterrent in wearing pins of any kind.

  57. Thinking of Mc Donald's I'd have to say nothing diverts your attention from the cancelled-flight-to-see-relatives blues than a mahusive pizza. Junk food for the soul :)

    Gorgeous brooch!
