270.

So, I wore this outfit yesterday to go thrifting and to pick up a jacket I left at the dry cleaners for almost a YEAR. Yes, I know - how careless was I to leave a jacket at the dry cleaners for a year?! I really have no excuse except I forgot and that really, I was lazy even when I happened to remember. Thrifting was kind of crazy too, actually - since there was a football game at our stadium the parking spots were packed with crazed fans... including our favourite thrift stores. Regardless, I made it out in one piece and I scored an awesome skirt and a jar I can use to put my spices in. Score!



Gab, my fiance, also surprised me with a brand new set of Prismacolor pencils after I had been looking for some good-quality pencil crayons for drawing. I recently got back into drawing and DIY after a long hiatus, I need lots of practice. Speaking of which, with this skirt from Dorothy Perkins I managed to dye it yellow. It wasn't the ochre I wanted originally (for the autumn season) so I think I'll give it another go to make it darker. Hey, practice makes perfect!

Until next time,

Gazel

  4. You look like a yellow rose in that skirt. :) Ooh, new Prismacolors ... I have an old box that's in a 1990s color palette, would love to get an updated set. :)

  8. Such a cute outfit! I've still been wanting to get a peterpan collar top or dress. I agree...aritzia is way overpriced, that was my one splurge. haha..that's awesome they still had your jacket! I didn't know you drew...that's awesome. I love drawing too. You should do some art and diy posts!

    1. They're all over in Forever 21. But you could just buy a collar from eBay or Romwe (or even Etsy!) and attach it to your own stuff. Bam! Instant chic. And you can already use it on your own existing wardrobe... :)

      I'm too shy and critical about posting my art online. :( I'm a perfectionist and blah, I think everything I produce sucks. I do it merely for fun though but still.

  9. Aww..yellow is my favorite color, so i love that skirt! I love the color it is now, but I bet it will still look amazing a darker shade of yellow. :) And your polka dot cardigan is the cutest! <3
