Concrete Catwalk // Blushing

December 1, 2011

if you are a friend of TCC on facebook, you may have seen me mention that i’ve been wearing this blush faux-leather jacket a LOT as of recently (it’s one of the few pieces i couldn’t bear to pack up for the movers!), and for this particular look, i wanted to embrace the neutral color and pair it with a few other earthtones and soft dusty pinks.

the sweater i’m wearing underneath is another long time favorite of mine – a spectacular deal found on sale in the men’s section at j. crew ($10!) and then embellished with a cut-out corner of an antique tablecloth and bedazzled with some pink and lavender rhinestones.  an easy DIY to turn a masculine staple into a girly glittery piece!

jacket – c/o beauxx
sweater – DIY + j. crew
tank – old navy
jeans – gap
earrings (similar… under $5!) – clothing swap
scarf (similar) – gift (thanks, k + lil!)
handbag – j. crew
booties (similar) – charlotte russe
