Hello!  How are you?  I am posting some old photos from summer.  I hope you don't mind. It's still super hot over here.  It's too warm to wear cozy wool sweaters and all that amazing velvet just yet.  However, I cant wait for the weather to change so I can put on my boots, leggings, and coats!  

Do you prefer summer or winter outfits?

It was so fun taking these photos at the car wash.  I had my eye on those bright blue walls for months!  When I spotted them, I knew I wanted to capture a bright summer outfit in front of this background.   To be quite  honest, my dirty Honda could use a car wash right now.  I've been so busy, that lately it has been growing fur on it haha:) 

You've probably noticed how tall these beautiful hibiscus red suede Gucci platforms are.  They are at least seven inches high, and are great for people who want to appear a wee bit taller.  Actually, they go great under bootcut or flare leg denim too.  This high-low ruffle lace tunic by Alexis was so interesting, I couldn't pass it up.  This crochet lace is so pretty and can easily go over a tank or a long sleeve shirt.  

Also, can you believe I found this awesome little red sequin bag at a thrift store?  If you look closely, some of the straps are broken, so I restyled it by tying the ends of the strings into knots so the beads wouldn't slide off.  Those beaded straps swing around like fringe, and I actually like the way it looks. 

What do you think?  Have you ever taken something that's broken and made it into something useful?  I'd love to hear about it in the comments below.
