Meow Meow


{Heels: Modcloth -- Tights: Target -- Dress: Modcloth -- Headband -- Claire's}





These "kitten" heels are the most adorable ever right? Totally glad I bought them, and on sale! Afraid I don't have much to say today, but I've been totally swamped with school {finals are coming up!} and work {black friday weekend was crazy}. Naturally it starts pouring rain as soon as I step out to take pictures too. Silly weather. Have a great day darlings!

Noir

C'est l'amour -- Rosi Golan


{Oxfords: Bass -- Tights: Target -- Dress: Modcloth -- Cardigan -- H&M}





How perfect is this LBD? Been looking for one like this for so long! And finally it's here. Thank you Modcloth! It has a really cute low cut back too, but silly me forgot to get a picture of it, *sigh*.I received my two packages from their sale today. One had this dress and adorable little heels. Which I bought using my first paycheck, a little celebration hehe. And the second is the Christmas gifts I bought for myself... well really my dad paid for it, but I'm going to wrap them and put them under the tree. :) 

I've missed blogging this week, I was actually frightened that my style was going to turn sour if I stopped blogging. Which is a little bit silly, but Wild Flower helps me understand myself and what I want to wear . Luckily this week/end has only been crazy because of Thanksgiving. I'm off next weekend, wahoo! 

Have a great night darlings, thanks for all the positive comments and the love, you're awesome!

Hi everyone! 

I wanted to let you all know {if you don't already!} that Modcloth is having a black friday weekend sale. They just restocked it all, so you should check it out :) 

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving, I wish I could have been with my parents, but still had a nice day with the boyfriend's family. Plus the pecan pie was amazing! It seems everyone has already gone holiday crazy and I'm not ready for them yet! Haha. Feels like just yesterday school started... 

Have a great weekend guys, I'll try and get in an outfit post tomorrow after work.

Peppermint

Jamie Lidell -- Compass


{Coat: H&M -- Cardigan: Modcloth -- Dress: Forever 21 -- Belt: Thrifted -- Brogues: Rack Room Shoes}






I've been dreaming of wearing this cardigan that I purchased from Modcloth a couple months ago. How cute are the roses? I sort of felt like a peppermint in all this red and white, but that being said I didn't view it as a bad thing! Made me feel all festive and I wanted hot chocolate. {Panera later? Yes please!} The weather permitted bare legs, which is strange for this time of year. Made me happy though, tights might have thrown off this whole look. Does that every happen to you? So annoying. Oh, like my fleur de lis earring? They were a gift from my mum :) 

I'm a working girl now! And I can already tell things are going to be a bit hectic till I figure out a schedule that works in balancing out school, work, blogging, family, and boyfriend. Wish me luck! haha. 

What are you doing for the thanksgiving break?

Remix: Gold Dream

Hello Lovlies, 
I mentioned last post how I've been on Polyvore a lot lately. It's totally fun to mix and match and make dream outfits. It's like owning every item you have ever wanted on the internet, and then styling those pieces how you would wear them in real life! Fun right? For this little remix I chose this lovely golden dress. If you have a piece that you want me to build a few outfits around, comment the URL to that item! I'd love to mix items that you guys give me, plus it would be a lovely chance to have your blog name featured on Wild Flower. :) 

1.  Weekend Errands
1. Necklace 2. Beret 3. Socks 4. Bootie 5. Dress 6. Cardigan 7. Purse 8. Belt

Okay, so you might had noticed my little obsession with beret's lately. They are just so wonderful, and jazz up my otherwise boring straight hair. Any who, would you guys wear any of these looks? I think my favorite is the school one, definitely want all of that right away! 

Have a great friday guys, I start work tomorrow eek! Also Twilight came out last night....I am completely excited. Even though I read the book and know it won't really be good till part 2, still want to watch it terribly bad. Bella always wears wonderful clothes too!

Pitter Patter

Make sure to enter the ClubCouture Giveaway!

Andy McKee -- Drifting


{Boots: DSW -- Dress: Thrifted -- Cardigan: Thrifted -- Beret: H&M -- Belt: Forever21}



My new H&M Coat, love it! Feels weird wearing an over coat that wasn't thrifted. A nice change though. :) I don't have to sew the pockets together or try and wipe away stains. Definitely worth the price. 





Hello busy schedule! Things have been a bit all over the place lately, it's a good change though. Keeping busy suits me. It rained all day today, which I normally love, except I knew taking pictures would be tricky. The gazebo in the yard saved the day though. Dry camera = happy blogger.

When I woke up today I felt a little sick and depressed. Food lately has just sounded awful. I really just wanted to dress comfy and I knew my sweater tights were the perfect answer. Luckily the day got much better as it went on. And Mcdonald's breakfast was exceptionally yummy once I got over the thought of throwing up. Their pancakes can cure anything seriously!

I've been addicted to polyvore lately, so much fun to put together all these dream outfits. I thought I would do a post of remixing a dress I've been drooling over at Topshop. Will probably put that up tomorrow or friday. 

Also wanted to thank you guys for all your compliments on the glitter shoes. I'm so glad you liked them. And no, the glitter doesn't fall off as you walk around. That's what the extra layers of glue are for! Definitely should try a pair, they are fun to make :)

DIY: Glitter Shoes

Make sure to enter the ClubCouture Giveaway! I'd say your chances of winning are pretty high right now! 

Hi Dolls, 
So this is my first DIY post on Wild Flower! Wahoo. I'm quite excited about it because I love how these babies turned out. This past weekend I decided to vamp up an old pair of oxfords for fun and sparkly ones. I was sort of inspired by New Year's {I know it's still totally early to be thinking about that} and by these amazing shoes: 
$380 USD

Now these puppies were a little bit out of my price range, but they were so beautiful, I couldn't get there glimmering awesomeness out of my mind. Here's the tutorial on how to make these for less than twenty dollars, enjoy! 

Here is what you will need:
  1. An old or new pair of oxfords, I used an old pair. 
  2. Glitter, of your color choice!
  3. Mod Podge glue, glasse finish {right next to the tacky glue at a craft store}
  4. A bowl
  5. Two sponge brushes
  6. Toothpicks {optional}
  7. Painter's tape {I didn't use mine, but would have been so helpful at the end!}
  8. Water proof shoe protecter
  9. Newspaper, to glitter on without making a giant mess

Here are the Oxford's I used, which were bought from Urban Outfitter's last year for ten dollars. These were the perfect pair to use because I was tired of my boyfriend calling them my "granny" shoes. Apparently his grandmother has these too? Definitely need glitterified! 



First off you will be needing your glitter, I used this kind:


Then you are going to pour the glue and glitter into a designated bowl. I recommend a lot of glitter for this. Probably more than you would think necessary. 


After that you mix it all up with one of your sponge brushes! Should look something like this: 


After finding the right mixture you are going to paint on an even coat of the glitter glue. Make sure to take out the laces!
Note: If you want to use painter's tape for the soles and inside of the shoe you should do so before starting any gluing on the shoe.


Wait 20 minutes before you start your second layer so the glue can dry on the shoe. For the glue in the bowl, I used plastic wrap to cover it up, making sure it didn't dry out. They should look something like this:


Now, for the second coat I poured glitter from the bottle onto the shoe and then pushed it in with the leftover glitter glue from before. You want to try and make pretty even coats, which you do by smoothing out the glitter with long strokes of the brush across the shoe.


Below is what my shoe looked like after two coats. I ended up doing another coat at the end just to ensure it was full sparkles. After that I took glue and, using my other sponge brush, put on two layers without any sparkles mixed in. This step is to ensure none of the sparkles fall off. After the layers of glue dried I took my shoe outside and sprayed it with waterproof shoe protecter. If you don't do this, they will most likely be ruined from any contact with water. We had some lying around the house, but I'm pretty sure it's not that expensive. 


Next you will be needing your toothpicks to poke through the preexisting holes for laces. If you don't have toothpicks lying around you can also use the tips of laces themselves. 


Once your holes are made, lace em up! I had an extra pair of blue laces from my Keds, so I ended up using those. The tan ones were a bit ruined. 




And there you have it! $380 shoes for much much less! Once you wear these out in public, make sure your prepare yourself for lots of compliments. They are the definition of statement shoe. I am hoping to wear mine on the next date night with my boy. :)


Let me know what you guys think! Do you like the shoes, if so are you going to make a pair? If you do make sure to send me pictures, that would be awesome. Do you like DIY post on Wild Flower, would you like more? Let me know darlings!
