Shoe Lust

I'm dying for these heels from Zara.
They're only $50, and they're the perfect blend of minimal and sexy. I think I may have to...

Stud DIY's

I have a little bag of silver studs that I can't help putting on everything. Here's two of my most recent stud DIYs:

I studded a plain white clutch to give it some more visual interest...

And I added studs to these heels to make them a little more badass. With these, I didn't even push the studs through the shoe straps, since the material was really tough. Instead, the straps were thin enough for me to simply bend the studs' prongs around the edges. Easy!

Such an easy and quick way to make a bold change, don't you think?

What do you think of my new coat?

It's a brown faux fur coat from Zara that I got off eBay for $17... and I'm absolutely in love with it. (And so is my sister, judging by this picture.)

Valentine's Day

 Here's a better picture of the H&M dress that I posted about (picture taken from their website). I wore it yesterday for Valentine's Day. I'll do an outfit post with it soon, but for now, enjoy this pretty model!

Also, in case you were wondering, here's how the cupcakes for my boyfriend turned out. (Dark chocolate with peanut butter frosting and peanut butter balls in the middle; I also put peanut butter M&M's and Reeses on top. Recipe here.)

And as for my romantic surprise, he made me my favorite: chicken pot pie! (Notice the little dough hearts he cut out? Aww.)

Like I said, I'm not usually much of a Valentine's Day person, but I have to admit that I'm starting to come around. Now I have to go eat the expensive chocolate that my boyfriend got me. Hope your Valentine Day was awesome!

Weekend Pictures

 This weekend I went to West Chester to visit my friend Hannah. I snapped some shots on my Instagram app and thought I would share them here. On Sunday we went to Longwood Gardens, which is gorgeous (and warm, and smells like flowers!).

 And the day before, on Saturday, we walked around the King of Prussia Mall, which is HUGE. I only got four things, and the most expensive was the polka dot dress (below) for only $15, so I'm pretty proud of my restraint. The dress and folded up scarf were from H&M and the book and lacy bra were from Urban Outfitters. Everything but the dress was five bucks. Score!

Sorry for the bad picture of the book; it's Sophie Blackall's Missed Connections, and it's gorgeous. I've wanted it for ages and it does not disappoint.

And this is what I wore: Jason Wu for Target cat scarf, an Old Navy jacket, black jeans from Gap and a red cardigan from Target. I also have my sunglasses from Urban Outfitters and a thrifted white clutch in the picture. Oh, and the hoop earrings were a loan from my sister. I should get a pair of my own.

Hope you had a fun weekend too!
