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.


  1. Cute shoes and nice DIY necklace!

  2. I love the necklace!

  3. I love the color of your skirt. And that necklace you made is amazingly cute! I think it looks even better than the overpriced free people one :)

  4. A trip to Philly always cures anything : ) I miss that city. I can't wait to come back to the university in August!

  5. super DIY! i need to get my creative on, i just feel like i never have time! i was thinking of making a necklace similar to this but with rope. hopefully i'll actually do it and then i can show your pictures.

    & pandas are the cutest!! i am absolutely obsessed. at school when i'm really stressed out, i go on panda youtube video binges. my friends all make fun of me, but it never fails to make me smile. so let the haters hate :]

  6. I love that skirt! It's such a great color. And I'm so impressed by your DIY necklace; definitely cooler than a super expensive mass-produced one! Also: EEEE PANDA!!

  7. oh don't feel down! your diy necklace is so so cute! i truly love it x x x

  8. That costume jewelry esque necklace is tdf. Hearts it.

  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.

  10. What a great idea for a photo location!! Might have to borrow that one. Love the panda at the bottom and the colour of the skirt!

  11. You look so cute! I lovelovelove the color of your skirt!

    Pandas are a definite pick me up. They have such cute faces, makes it impossible to not be happy!

  12. Woah...! these are awesome!
    ...and your diy version is quite lovely! I thought you had purchased it, as well!
    Also that panda basket is lovely! I bet you could totally make one as cute yourself!
