Printed In The Pages

my outfit today: DIY bow headband, DIY eyelashes tunic, black tights, and vintage charles jourdan bag, OH and not pictured (ok, well you've seen them--f21 patent oxfords)

the weather has finally cooled down! .. for a while. i heard that it would jump up to the 80's during the weekend. and i loathe tomorrow simply because i have piano class. i took a 2 week break after Certificate of Merit and now i'm back to practicing songs for next year.. no more "TGIF's"
EXCITEMENT!: my forever 21 purchase came in yesterday night.. and i was NOT dissappointed. I LOVE this cut. it's a drapey sweater that i ordered a larger size than usual (medium) and it fits just how i want it. i had been wanting one of those "flowy" sweaters for a while, but was looking for something unconventional. UNLIKE the pictures, the back of the sweater is actually pretty long--just how i wanted it. i like the grungy feel of it, but i can't put a finger on what runway look inspired these sweaters.

i have found use for my old leather belt, studs, and miniscule chains that my friend bought for me!
*** 100% my own design and work***

this piece is called "The Kirtland"--named after THE friend that bought the chains :)
so.. i need YOUR opinion.
is this piece worth selling on my etsy (i regret to say.. i have only one item put up.. and no one has offered anything so i kinda gave up for a while :/ ) ??
tell me your thoughts... as you are the normal consumers in the fashion world :D


YAY! detail oriented post for once .

as someone who doesn't online shop, because i am a poor high school student, I love this piece. I was thinking of starting up my own online store of my own pieces since i have gotten good feedback on my blog about them. anyways in my opinion you should def sell it! simple and chic.
