DIY and pandas!


excuse the weird look, the train was coming

Outfit details:
Shirt- Banana Republic outfit for 5$!
Skirt- UO for 10$
Shoes- UO
Necklace- made by myself, better image of it down below

So, the necklace I mentioned in my previous post was actually 175$, not 275$, but expensive none the less. This is the necklace from Free People:


And here is my 25$ version. The neat thing with this is you can change the necklace whenever you want. All I did was simply pin and clip the pendant to the chain and vwa-la! You can change the pendents and ribbon to match your outfit and what not too. Once I get more broaches and things I would like to change it a bit.

I was feeling quite down today. So my boyfriend and I took a trip to Philly and I purchased this lovely thing to perk myself up. I've always been a HUGE panda lover so this fit in well with my collection. Isn't it just so cute =] Panda's could just perk up anyone's day and if they don't you have no soul. Hehe not really, but how could you resist they're cute liddle faces without smiling.

  9. Your outfit is beautiful!! I love the necklace you made. I was eyeing a similar one at Anthropologie - but yes, expensive. Kudos for making something so lovely and saving a ton. Oh and btw, I forgot to answer the question you posted on my blog. I use Analog Toy Camera to get the effects on my pics. I was using Photoshop for a while, but this program is much quicker.
