Urban Chic

Sunday, October 2, 2011

I hope everyone is thoroughly enjoying your Sunday! As for me, I am held captive by a fanatical football crazed Husband. I am trying to blog in between high-fiving him for plays I have zero understanding of. I love him, but I have absolutely no interest in sporting events.....

Today I am using blogging as my escape from Game Day! I swear he is one touch down away from tearing off his shirt and running through the apartment building screaming. If you're the wife/girlfriend of fervid sports fan then please take solace in my post today :D

This look is one I really enjoy. I love the idea of taking something that is meant to be worn one way and putting a new spin on things. I know this H&M dress was not intended to be worn roaming around Silverlake, but I figured throwing on a pair of short boots would add some urban flare. I like that I was able to take what should be a cocktail dress and turn it into fun shopping outfit.

I actually Made these guitar pick earrings. They used to be a huge trend and I made over a hundred pairs.
Ultimately, I ended up giving most of them away :)

I hope this picture doesn't offend. I thought it was a cool vantage point and you gotta love LA graffiti :D
I bought this ring at a Flea Market for $3
