Elaine in Bloom

Tuesday, August 23, 2011
I've worn this flower necklace quite a few times. Okay, 12 times to be exact.... I made this necklace two years ago (!!!) because I was inspired by this girl from The Sartorialist and it's about time I right-out steal her outfit. I know, I know.. I should've bleached my hair blonde. I was too busy getting my half-tuck right. It's an art. Srsly.

I'm wearing a Gap dress I cut into a top ($8), Gap Outlet jeans ($26), handmade flower necklace ($3), and JCPenney nude pumps (free).

  4. You really make casual outfits look super chic and cute. I love your nude pumps. I need one for myself, but I can never find the perfect size 5 that fits comfortable.

  5. I have never mastered the jean roll up that looks effortless yet fashionable.  You obviously have.  I'm taking notes.

  7. This looks like a lovely spring look (it's almost spring here in Australia). I love mixing yellow with blue ...

  10. I always love your boyfriend jeans. Mine aren't as slim and it makes me jealous! I'll repent later. For now I will just be jealous.
