I was invited to attend a blogger reception at Katy Mills mall over the weekend. There was a trends presentation at Neiman Marcus Last Call, who provided us a tasty breakfast of mimosas, fruit, pastries, tacos, and pigs in the blanket (my fave!). I got to see some of my blogger pals that I hadn’t see in a while, which is always nice, and received a $25 gift card that I used in a small jewelry haul at Forever 21, thanks to Reiko ;-) .
I thrifted this jacket a few months ago, and deiced to add a touch of bling to it earlier this month. Of course that means I’ve been wanting to wear it, but it’s been so hot! Saturday, I decided to wear it in spite of the heat, and I’m glad I did! It won’t be cooling off anytime soon around these parts, and I can’t allow the weather to completely dictate my style, lol.
I am all about a simple DIY, and I had these iron-gems laying around the house from playing around with craft ideas for my teen sleepover at church. All I did was position the gems where I wanted them and pressed down with the iron on them, per the instructions that came with the package.
I only blinged out one side for now, but I may cover the over name/label as well in the future.
