Fashion Therapy - Fringe Elements

More rain = more color! I felt like punching it up a bit today. Someone asked me if this was my family's plaid (no it isn't, but I kind of wish I could go to Scotland) and if my legs were warm (why, because they look bright red??) It was pretty chilly today, which is why my photos are so weird; I was mostly running around trying to keep warm, and I wanted to show off the fun swingin' fringe that I added to this plain tank top.

tank - diy fringe  |  cardigan - h&m  |  skirt - self made  |  tights - we love colors  |  shoes - payless

Now I made this skirt last year, out of material I bought at least two years ago, when I was in college. So imagine the shock of recognition I felt watching Project Runway's finale a few weeks ago — Seth Aaron's collection featured the exact same plaid yellow fabric! That's pretty nifty, I think!

Yays ♥ I have a new sponsor, the sweet & talented Mariel of Lumikha Studio! ♥ um, have I mentioned doughnut holes this week yet? ♥ Orange Pop scented Revlon nail polish; I haven't had time for a pedicure yet but I'm super excited to try it! ♥ Me-Made May is getting easier, and it's almost half over already! Is it just me, or does blogging make the time go by faster?

In response to comment:
*Eleonore - thank you for your compliments on the Rose Red dress! Unfortunately, I bought that fabric as a scrap some time ago and do not have any more, or else I would make you one!


  1. hmm, I gave up on tartan years ago as it never seemed to suit me, but the volume of this cute little number may sway me...
    love the tights, I wore shocking pink ones with gold wedge sandals the other night and got so many compliments!
    By the way, if you're in for a spot of problem solving...

    I love the plaid and you styled it phenomenally.
