I’ve been playing around making shoe jewelry like the awesome stuff on litter sf – cut up some studded bracelets from Wet Seal and attached them to chains from the craft store. I need to add more chain that will go underneath the shoes for high-heels, but I decided to wear what I had tonight with flats. Love them! I walked a decent bit and they stayed in place, weren’t irritating…good test run.
Speaking of litter sf, look at this amazing ish they’ve come up with…
Some fun stuff I’ve acquired lately…I already gloated about the silver sequined jacket but here’s a daytime pic
Other things thrifted that day…this brown velvet vest. It has a lot of buttons and I didn’t feel like doing them all up for the photo – it’s double-breasted
I love the very long satin sash that ties in the back into a big bow
Also found a cute long-sleeved henley t-shirt that has shiny things for buttons and metallic trim…it didn’t photograph well
And I found an interesting dress at Walmart a few days ago – it has lots of layers, is linen, and was $9! I plan to wear it as a jumper of sorts, over a long-sleeved black t-shirt, because my arms are fat. Anyway, here it is wrinkled and on the hanger…front

I guess that’s it for tonight – I’m up to my ears in schoolwork.
Did some thrifting today…I hadn’t been going to Savers, the “thrift department store” much lately because I feel like their clothes tend to be kind of boring and a little overpriced for second-hand, but I stopped by there today and am glad I did. I’ve been looking all over for a couple of months for a sequined jacket of some kind and haven’t found the right one at the right price. But I found it today at Savers! I love the shape, the color (sequins are silver, not black like it looks in the pic), it was my size, in practically mint condition, and $7.00! This picture isn’t great because I took it at night, I’ll take a better one tomorrow along with the other pieces I bought today, but here’s an idea of what it looks like…
I LOVE it! The cut is perfect, it even has a little mesh in the shoulders that gives it the slightly prominent shoulder look that is so right for the moment without being over-the-top Dynasty shoulderpads. I just have to replace the single large snap that fastens in the front and it’s good to go!
It was in the section with all the Halloween costumes, LOL. Should I be concerned that I’m buying clothes to wear every day that others classify as a costume? 😛 Actually, though, Halloween IS a great time in retail for a lot of things I love: black nail polish and lipstick, crazy fake lashes, and I love skulls, skeletons, pumpkins, black cats, creepy trees…it’s not only my favorite holiday, it’s a lot of my favorite year-round loves.
Went shopping at Target yesterday with a friend and bought (in the dollar bins) the cutest little flashlight…it has these little filters that you put over the light
So when you shine it, you get this!
So cute! Why do I need this? No idea. I also bought this great mask at the grocery store the other day – I often dress up as a black cat for Halloween but usually just use black makeup to paint on a nose and whiskers…but I couldn’t resist this for $5.00.
Not sure if the picture shows that it is velvet-like with feathers and black rhinestones and silver cord around the eyes…so fabulous. I’m having a hard time not buying TONS more stuff, especially all the cool skull stuff. Must. Use. Restraint.
I bought a garter belt at Walmart today – I’m not actually trying to do some sexy thing with this, I just have sort of skinny legs and thigh high stockings never stay up on me, so I wanted something to keep them in place. The one I found is cute, though, it’s styled like a mini (very mini) skirt instead of the traditional style
For $10.00, that’ll work.
The gorgeous-things-I-can’t-afford file for tonight…this “black apartment” – totally not my home style (as much as I love black for clothing, I don’t want to live in a super-black environment) but it’s really fabulous
More photos of it here.
Things-I-can-afford, these harness boots from Target that are leather and on sale for $39.99 this week
They look good in person, too, I saw them yesterday. I can’t decide if I need them or not, as I have a very similar pair of boots without the strap/buckle thing.

And look at this awesome DIY, from a belt to bondage anklets.
That’s it for tonight. Thanks for reading.
