Down to the Wire

thrifted and upcycled top
oxblood skinnies by Bullhead Black (similiar)
black wedge sneakers by Glaze (similiar)


I've already crushed an entire bag of Hershey Kisses and a 2 liter of Mountain Dew today, which only means one thing...it's finals week!  And here I am, procrastinating through blog posts and Photoshop.  In between final reports and problem sets, I managed to sneak out and shoot a few pieces I've been meaning to get to.  This top is a DIY project of mine, taken from the thrift store and removed of all shoulder padding and old fashioned buttons.  I really like how it turned out, it's a perfect nineties hip-hop-esque top to go with my new wedge sneakers.  I never thought I'd be the type of person to wear sneakers with a heel, but I took the risk and they are my new favorite kicks (and surprisingly comfortable)!

This gold sequined bangle is a gift from my new friends at Olivia Welles Jewelry, and is so perfect for the upcoming season of festivities.  Their holiday collection is full of sparkly goodness, and can be purchased on sale at HauteLook.com until 8am Pacific time this Thursday, Dec. 20th.  Olivia Welles also donates 5% of the line's profits to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.  Such a great way to give back this holiday season!
