So this shadow box has been used for the same few old pictures for the past couple of years and today inspiration struck while I was cleaning my room. From now on I'm going to use it to house mood boards that will hopefully rotate with my current obsessions and DIY ideas. So as they change I will be sharing them for you my loyal readers to see and maybe get inspired by as well.
Sorry about the weird lighting, my camera made it super yellowy, so I tried to correct it as best as I could, luckily most of the pieces are pretty neutral so it doesn't affect it too much.
P.S. who else thinks that manicure on the jeweled hand is killer?! Obsessed.
Today is my lil ol' blogs first birthday!! And even though I just started a new blog, Heavy Fashion, I haven't forgotten about my first born. I'm still really trying to work on how I write because there are a lot of things I would like to do that I'm not. I promise I'm funny in real life, so my New Years Resolution for this blog is to bring more of that to my readers, and less of my long winded explanations (like this!).
Editors Note: I wrote this entire post yesterday (the 19th) but for some reason never submitted it to be published. So this celebration is coming a day late. oops!
So as I've mentioned before, I'm the UF campus rep for Akira, a chicago based retailer who is hoping to expand their online presence through interns, like me, located around the US. One of our assignments was to style these killer Chinese Laundry Kingdom boots and here is my result. I didn't go too crazy, but then again I only had what was in my suitcase for the holiday. Check out Akira's stuff (they have House of Harlow and Jeffrey Campbell!) here www.shopakira.com, and use my code SJM15 to get 15% off your order!!!
Am I the only one who thinks that its practically a requirement to own a pair of Jeffrey Campbell shoes to be a successful fashion blogger these days? Maybe I'm being dramatic but after 11 days of entering the Solestruck 12 days of JC shoes I'm pretty much ready to give up! But then on the 12th day, they unveiled THE JC shoe of the blogosphere. That's right, the LITA. Want in? Get in line behind me! and hope your christmas wish is worthy of this prize. I'm partial to the taupe suede because I know I would get a lot of use out of it, but something about the glitter just KILLS me. I mean if you're going to go all out in a huge platform, why not make it sparkle?
I may not be Rumi Neely yet, but I'd love to celebrate my blog's 1 yr anniversary with some Litas!!
