A few months later around Christmas time I was in the Gucci store drooling when I came across this beautiful bow like brooch. I was obsessed and had to have it. Oops… it was $390. I have been really into DIY projects as seen by a recent DIY outfit project here so I decided to try and make one myself.
I have had cystic acne for most of adult life, I really try to only use products that won’t break me out and combat my heavy oil levels. It’s a constant struggle having oily skin and my oil seems to be able to break down all of my cosmetic products in just a few hours. Having a regimen for me is key and I have, with effort, been able to eliminate most of my acne.
My photographer and friend Luccia got this pearl vest from Poland a few years ago and ever since I saw it I tried to find something similar. Up until this point, no such luck but she is a very generous loaner so I was happy to be able to sport them earlier this week.
I have started and failed many times since then so I decided to scrap the gym membership and only go to things that are classroom based. So far, I like what I am doing. Two to three times a week I schedule out a pilates class or dance class/sometimes something new.
I had this look in mind and went to order a distressed tee online. I was looking at different retailers and I could understand why a ripped and beat up shirt costs so much money. As I was looking at more and more of them, I kinda thought… “I feel like I can do this myself ” lol and I decided then that I was going to give it a go.
I couldn’t get through the week without anticipation of showing off this gorgeous gown. I found it on the Revolve website and I just had to have it. It is a collaboration between Michael Costello and Revolve that ended up in this dainty but powerful collection.
