DSC07451Today I wore… a thrifted floral shirt I “borrowed” (…stole) from Hannah (thanks, Hannah!), Banana Republic skirt, Cole Haan shoes, and an assortment of thrifted jewelry.

I also continued work on my DIY jacket last night. Using acrylic paint and a semi-gloss gel medium, I played up the gradient effect on the bottom and also coated the hood to give it a leather-like, waxy treatment:

DSC07450Now all I have left to do is distress it a little, and I think I’ll have achieved the desired effect! Can’t wait until it’s chilly enough to wear it out!

  2. Really like what you’ve done to the jacket, very inspiring! 🙂

  3. It’s amazing how you combined the colors! I love the floral top with the black skirt and shoes. The jacket really works, too, especially with your hair color. You’ve got a contrast with the jacket and just a *hint* of continuity (but not too much) between the light colors of your hair and the light floral colors of the shirt.

    This is my first time reading your blog. Are you a designer (or going to be one)?

  4. The diy jacket looks already very good..like to see the end result , im pretty sure its gonna rock!

    One Love,
