I found this pretty color block dress at a local thrift store for $10. It's one of 3 dresses that I may end up wearing to the Aerosmith concert/to meet Steven Tyler again in Novemeber. For this look I wore a leopard print belt at my waist, brown tights and black suede boots. If I wear it to the concert I will add my new studded leather jacket since it will be freezing outside.

Here is my new dress from Forever 21. I was browsing their website a few weeks ago and came across this gorgeous Coral lace dress and bought it. I paired the dress with black faux leather leggings, brown boots by Candies and my over-sized brown wooden cross.
This week I got back to making jewelry and made several bracelets, 2 of which I am wearing here. A lady at work liked a few of my bracelets I made and wanted me to make her two. Also this past week I bought tickets to see Aerosmith again, but this time in Columbus Ohio on November 25th. I'll be meeting Steven Tyler and Joe Perry once again and last time I made Steven a necklace that I gave to him. This time I decided I would make him and Joe some bracelets from beads that remind me of them/their style. So I made a few for them and am wearing one of the ones I made for Steven. Anyways if you'd like to see my jewelry creations check them out on Pinterest: http://pinterest.com/na1984/my-beaded-jewelry-creations/
The jewelry I'm wearing

(I did make this lovely shell bracelet)
(And here is one of the two bracelets I made for Steven Tyler)
Since I love his style, the idea of making something that he LIKES would make me so happy! But for him to possibly WEAR something I made... that would be the best thing ever.
Here's my fave leopard print dress making another appearance. I originally bought this to wear to see Aerosmith & meet Steven Tyler & Joe Perry but ended up wearing another dress at the last moment. This time I paired the dress with my black & tan wedges that have black bows atop them. For jewelry I went simple and I wore 2 layered cross necklaces. I gave my hair a little rock star volume with hair spray and added red color to my lips.
The very first look in my new studded leather jacket! I was searching for a new leather jacket a while back on eBay and came across a few possibilities but when I saw this I knew this was the one. The jacket is from China and came in Chinese sizes so since they run a full size or two smaller than U.S. sizes I prayed the XL would fit me..and thank God it did!
I love leather jackets but even more so I love studded leather jackets. This one is so perfect because all of the detailing, it's tailored in all the right places and has pointy shoulders. I wanted to pair the jacket with a pretty/feminine dress so I chose my pastel pink dress with a tulle skirt. Then I added my ever so popular spike studded heels and a few necklaces and rings. I hope you like it as much as I do.

I guess you really did it this time
Left yourself in your warpath
Lost your balance on a tightrope
Lost your mind tryin' to get it back
Wasn't it easier in your lunchbox days?
Always a bigger bed to crawl into
Wasn't it beautiful when you believed in everything
And everybody believed in you?
It's alright, just wait and see
Your string of lights is still bright to me
Oh, who you are is not where you've been.
You're still an innocent,
You're still an innocent.
Did some things you can't speak of
But at night you live it all again
You wouldn't be shattered on the floor now
If only you would seen what you know now then
Wasn't it easier in your firefly-catchin' days?
When everything out of reach, someone bigger brought down to you
Wasn't it beautiful runnin' wild 'til you fell asleep
These awesome new heels making another appearance in today's look. I paired my mint green sheer blouse with this Candies pink ruffle skirt for a colorful girly look. I added the pearl & chain locket necklace, a black fedora and of course these fabulous heels. Hope you like it!
I bought this creme knit hole cardigan a few weeks ago at TJ Maxx and haven't posted a look in it until now. I paired it with a pink lace dress from Forever 21 and my over-sized wood cross necklace. These heels I got from JustFab.com and are the most amazing shoes ever. I saw them and new I HAD to buy them. They are covered in cupcakes, ring pops, lollipops, glitter and full of bright color.
I've had this checkered dress for a while, originally found it at Plato's Closet for $6! The star print blouse is new from TJ Maxx, featured in a recent previous look. I'm wearing my new mini-harmonica necklace that my BFF bought my for my Birthday and a Black cross necklace. AND I am wearing my new Aerosmith biker ring!!!!! Paired these with black leggings and studded boots.
