Tutu Skirt, Diamond Stud Earrings and a Clapper

Bang, bang.  Bucket pounded his truck against the wall.
I asked him what he was doing and he smiled.
Then he banged the truck again.
The lamp turned on and he was so excited.
I realized he was playing with the lights, that stinker.
And yes, we have a clapper
(thanks to a white elephant at Camouflage's work).

TUTU - Thrifted
SWEATER - Caslon, Swapped
SHEARLING BLACK MOTO VEST - Loehmanns
BLACK COMBAT BOOTS - Zigi Girl, Nordstrom
DIAMOND STUD EARRINGS - c/o Anjolee

BLUE STRIPED TOP - Old Navy, $8
BLACK PRINTED JEANS - Foreign Exchange, $10
SPIKEY BALLET FLATS - Target
BARBED WIRE EARRINGS - iSanctuary

This week I wore a thrifted tutu to church with a moto vest and combat boots.  I'm in love with these boots because they're comfortable.  I got them during the anniversary sale at Nordstrom.  The cashmere sweater I got during a swap with friends and the vest is from Loehmanns.  The second outfit is an everyday casual one.  The top is Old Navy clearance and the jeans were $10 at Foreign Exchange.






I also wanted to mention these awesome Diamond Stud Earrings I got from Anjolee.  I wore them with the first outfit because I liked the juxtaposition of something classy with my combat boots and moto vest.  Anjolee customizes jewelry according to preference of metal type, diamond size, gemstone quality and size.  They have a ton of birthstones to choose from and their website makes it really easy to design the perfect piece of jewelry.


Bucket drives the truck he used to turn on the light behind him.

I love my new Diamond Stud Earrings.  They match everything and they always look good.  I also appreciate that they never go out of style, kinda like the Clapper.

i wanted a clapper for fun. i got it as a christmas gift, but it didn't work. so we threw it away. boo hoo! i wish i could find a tutu skirt thrifting. claire, those combat boots with the moto vest are a nice mix of edge with feminine. your blue striped blouse with the jeans is my favorite kind of outfit. it looks comfortable, effortless, and stylish.
