Have you ever bought something, not really liked it, but forgotten to return it? Whenever that happens to me I feel determined to find a way to make it work. After all, I paid for it. Re-purposing items can keep extreme buyers remorse from setting in. Lets agree not to ever let shopping turn into a bad thing, k?
This long black kimono is actually a wrap dress, only I don't like it as a wrap dress, so I turned it into a kimono. Speaking of re-purposing, I love alley murals. They take an otherwise drab, albeit useful city feature and make it a destination. This mural just popped up in town and I wanted to be the first to shoot here.
I paired my now kimono with a contrasting polka dot cropped tee and some killer high waisted black jeans with a tuxedo stripe down the side. Have you ever worn a dress and a tuxedo at the same time? Kinda.
These jeans are a must have. They have some magical properties that make your legs look so good.
This blog shoot was also the debut of my new hairstyle. I've been craving bangs and a shorter, shag style hairdo for months and finally pulled the trigger.
