some worthless advice

Do not wear this skirt to Home Depot... as a girl, going to Home Depot is hard enough, but accidentally wear a wood grain skirt in there, and you are in trouble.

T-shirt - Bitten by SJP
Belt - thrifted at Fake Target
Skirt - thrifted at Fake Target
Tights - thrifted at Fake Target
Bracelet - thrifted child's belt, wrapped around four times
Shoes - Madeline (DSW clearance)

Oooh and I have to throw in a "bracelet" close up... it's a thrifted child's belt in case you can't tell. I think it looks rather awesome.

Yay! Did my taxes! Will have extra money soon! Will try to be responsible and put it in savings but my impending spring break is tempting... vacation, mmmmmm. Up next... take on this hot mess in my closet!

Don't judge! 98% of these were either:
a.) thrifted and therefore $1-$5
b.) I have owned since high school, middle school, grade school?!?!
c.) were inherited from mom/sister/roommates
d.) gifts
e.) made by me

In other words, I own one decent necklace. I'm replacing this with various hooks that I have been collecting from thrift stores/home stores/wherever! All the earrings are going in "the earring drawer" which now exists in my closet, right above "the bracelet drawer." 

Oh, P.S. Crafting preview! Can you guess what it is or will be(the previous photo doesn't give you a hint at all!) I'll post when it's done and it's not a big fat mess!
It's a total DIY/ripoff of the Live Long Summer Necklace by Lizzie Fortunato Jewels...
hmm, maybe I'll try to make her Hold On Me Necklace next?

Oh, and the real one costs 360 pounds, which is what, like $600?!?!? No thank you.
