Stoop Kid

Today was a rainy Tuesday, as has been the popular thing with the weather for the past few days. Not that I minded too much, a little rain's good every now and then. But because of said rain, my sister refused to leave the stoop to take pictures in a better location. Hence the stoop kid title, haha.

I didn't do much today. It's actually been a pretty boring, drab day. Hopefully tomorrow will have something more exciting attached to it. But for today, I thought a long muumuu-like dress with a belt to cinch it fit the mood. Of course I'm once again rocking my new boots. Well new, new. The pair from the last post were just so uncomfortable, I went back to the thrift store yesterday to find another identical pair. Not too hard, those type of boots are commonplace in the thrift world.

I said something a few weeks back about wanting one of those plastic chokers that were so huge in the nineties. I've been feeling 12 lately, I guess. At any rate, I haven't gotten my hands on any lately, (or looked for any, really) so I just cut the bottom of a black skirt and made a DIY choker for the time being. It was so easy and serves the same purpose as the plastic ones, so I'm thinking I'll just keep on rocking this one through and through.

What are some cool DIY things you guys have been into doing lately? I'd definitely love to hear some tips/stories/suggestions. Hopefully I can shower you guys with a lot more DIY goodies soon. For now, I'm out though. My eyes have been wanting to close all day for the longest...nap time, here I come...

  4. Thank you so much for your AWESOME comments! They really made me smile!!! I love this outfit, and the choker! I was making a lot of jewellery last summer and then sort of stopped, but definitely want to get into it again!

  5. Love the '90s vibe of your look! Florals are always appealing to me. As for DIYs, I've been bleach dipping lots of cutoffs lately.
