DIY Ideas

I love the idea of making your own wrapping paper! Eeep! I am so excited to try this awesome DIY!

I really like this wood slice tray DIY. This would also be cute to use as a little display for bits and bobs.

Awh! These little fabric acorns are so cute!

I wish I would have thought of making silhouettes out of leaves. I am in love with how they look.

This floating candle would make such a great silly gift for a friend. I love the quirkiness to it.

Have an awesome Friday! Be sure to check back tomorrow, I have something awesome planned!

Outfit: Fall is Here

I am wearing a scarf! I am very excited about it too. I even ventured into the world of blazers. This fall is going to be swell.
This shirt is actually quite a pain in the butt. It is awkwardly made, so I have to keep it unbuttoned mostly in the back. I just wear cardigans, or in this case a blazer, to cover it up. I really like the print, but it is just so uncomfortable.
Blazer/belt/shoes- Thrifted
Beetle blouse- Ebay
High waisted pants- UO
Scarf- Ragstock

I think I really like my hair short like this. I was thinking of dying it gray, but I quite like the brown. I think I need a brown that does not have any red shades in it.

Stuff I Luff #35

This collar is so cute! I think I have become a bit collar obsessed.

I am so in love with this dress from Oasap. The colors are perfect for fall.

I really really want some tights with a knee patch. I really like the colors of this pair

Fingerless gloves are so wonderful for taking photos in the fall/winter. This pair looks so cozy.

For as much as I love tote bags, I sure don't have many. I really want to start my collection with this crafty tote.

Places To Go: Star Vintage

I have been explaining to people how busy I am by saying "Look how often I am posting on my blog." School is definitely kicking my butt. I was not ready to let go of my summer vacation. I will be sharing what I have been working on in my 3D art class soon. Of course I still find time to hang out with friends here and there. So here are some photos of a vintage shop Dominick and I found a couple weeks ago.
322 South State Street Ann Arbor, MI

It was really odd walking downstairs and through this hallway to get there. I felt like we were entering someone's home.
The displays were all really cute! 
I thought this lamp was so pretty. It looks like it belongs in a woodland fairy's home.
Although they had some cute stuff, I didn't leave with anything. I had my heart set on buying some high-waisted pants from UO.
Doesn't it look like we are leaving someone's basement? It was quite odd. I really like all of the lights hung around though. 

Have you ever been here?

Stuff I Luff #34

This has to be one of the coolest dresses ever. I will definitely be needing this next summer.

OH MY GOODNESS. I am IN LOVE with these Ghost World prints. One of my new blog buddies, Midge, is selling them in her Etsy shop.

I love Elbow patches! This sweater has cute heart shaped ones. I sense a DIY coming on.

Wooden brooches are an obsession of mine, and I surely do not have enough! This one is so cute, I love how apathetic she looks.

I want to eventually get some short moccasin boots like these. I have long ones and I am just now finding things to wear with them after having them for over 2 years. They are hard to style!

Have an awesome Tuesday guys! I am feeling much better now so I know I will!
