An Artsy Little Fairy


Ok, let me just start by saying I love this outfit. I feel like a fairy in it. I was sb-consciously making up for yesterday. :D

I got the turtle-neck sweater from my cousin, Molly, when we were shopping at Goodwill a couple months ago. I've worn it once before with skinny jeans, but I didn't blog it. I really love it. It's very flattering, and I absolutely adore the sleeves. When I got it I was actually wishing it was black, but now I'm glad it's not. Gray is growing on me. :)

The belt and the flower are both from Charlotte Russe - and no, they are not one piece, though I have worn them together before. When I bought the belt it had a black satin rose where the pink flower is now, but it fell off a couple days after I got it. I could have exchanged it, but I decided not to, since all it needed was some hot glue, and my mom has a hot glue gun. Fortunately she didn't have any hot glue sticks at the time, so it sat in my closet waiting to be glued. (The silver studs that hold the hooks on are visible on the front so it needs something to cover them.)

After waiting a while to get it fixed, I finally had the idea to put the pink flower clip over it, and absolutely loved the look. I have since decided just to get a clip for the back of the satin rose that came with it, instead of permanently affixing it to the belt. :D

So, that is the story of my outfit. I also have a few more pictures from my photo shoot on my Tumblr account, if you're interested. ;-)
