What I Wore:
Dress: clothing swapped
Tights Value Village (new)
Belt: Made par moi
My collection of colourful cardigans is slowly growing. I hope to own a rainbow set so that I can pair them prints. If you haven't noticed I own a lot of stripes and polka dots and it is so much more exciting to pair those with colour than to wear a black cardi with them all the time. I picked up this green one last week at Value Village and am gad that I did because it is comfortable and warm. It will also pair nicely with a large range of my clothes, so I win all around really. I am pleased to say that I made the belt. Is it the first time I have done something like that and it turned out pretty well. I wish the metal part was a little bit smaller because the elastic slips around bit on it (and I sewed it as close to the edges as possible), but the smaller size would have been too small. I wanted to make a red one too but there wasn't enough left, I hope they get some more in soon.
I have been on a bit of a nail painting kick lately, since the end of the summer actually. My nails have never been very healthy and I find working in the store makes them break even more. I have started using some nail strengthening polish and it seems to be working so far. I also find painting them and using a good top coat prevents them breaking as frequently too, so I have been going a little overboard with the designs. I should have used that line in the post with the nautical nails, haha! I discovered that we have some Sally Hanson manicure nail stickers, and they work really well for making line designs like this one. It's a little hard to tell from the picture (which is sadly the best one, it is hard to take nail pictures well) but there are actually three colours in there. I am amazed that this design has lasted two days without getting chipped (it's a record), the Revlon top coat I bought is doing a good job. Usually as soon as it chips I start to pick it off which is really bad. I have been thinking about ordering some Seche Vite top coat since I have heard good things about it. I wouldn't pick off my polish so quickly if it didn't chip so easily.
