Note to Self

Like many of you, I troll fashion blogs regularly and sometimes I get so inspired by a look I think "hey, I can do that!" I had such a moment when I came across this photo on Late Afternoon via StreetFsn

The girl's name is Eva and this sweatshirt is what prompted the earlier statement. I went out to Walmart (two weeks before Christmas, mind you, it was a mad house!) and picked up a gray sweatshirt (I own very few since I live in Miami) grabbed the scissors and went to chopping...only I didn't have the picture in front of me and my shirt looks like it got caught on the edge of something and ripped a part...I'll take a look at it again in the morning to see if it's salvageable, but for now it serves as a reminder to me to always look at the picture first :(. (I'll upload pictures of my failed attempt later on Facebook, which you should "like" btw). 
Anyway, here are a few more pictures from Streetfsn
Eva again

Anja Rubik...loving the whole look, including the peep of leopard print shoes.

Christine Centenera I doubt that it's faux :(, but I love how the fur polishes off the entire look.

That last outfit is really cute!!!

Sometimes I just take scissors to my clothes randomly. Sometimes it works out, sometimes it doesn't. I made some really cute shorts out of my pants the other day though!

Love love. xoxo Summer
