Hello lovelies!!! This weekend, I took a day trip to Venice Beach in sunny (actually it was a little cloudy) Los Angeles. 

I saw this awesome street art and had to take a weird photo.

DIY: Choker Necklace

Hello lovelies!! Over the weekend, I was feeling especially crafty so I made a couple of choker necklaces...

The clover choker hits straight on my neck, but I made the amethyst one a little longer since the pendant was heavier.

MODCLOTH OUTFIT CHALLENGE: Evening of Extravagance Dress

Hello lovelies!!! So I heard about this lovely weekly contest ModCloth is doing, and I had to join in. They have so many pretty dresses (check them out here) for all ocassions; from going out to a day in the office and everything in between, the perfect dress is waiting!! 

This week's main piece was the Evening of Extravagance dress. With Valentine's Day coming up, I think this would be a beautiful pick - who says you have to wear pink? Black is cool!!! Black is REALLY cool!!!

what did you say about me?

And come on, what's evening better than wearing a black dress on Valentine's Day?

A pair of kick-ass Dr. Martens to go with it! Throw on some frilly socks to make it fun. A cute pair of quotation mark earrings finished off the look... it gives off a "what did you say?" vibe. Super cool.

Ah, if only I had a place to wear this lovely outfit.
