Made With Love

I admit that on days people compliment my clothing choices, I feel pretty good and get a boost in confidence. However, getting complimented on what you picked off the rack in Nordstrom is not half as satisfying as when someone compliments something you made.


Skirt: made by yours truly; tank top: Nordstroms; Cardigan: Urban Outfitters; Shoes: Tahari


Today I donned my new skirt, the skirt I made in my sewing class at AAU this summer, and got countless compliments, even from teachers. Okay, well the teacher was an LA teacher and therefore loves crosswords, but nonetheless it felt so good to get such rewarding feedback on something that was a result of my hard work and something that was a result of my imagination. I even have a few requests to make some for other people!
Each year I like to switch up my wardrobe with new themes and ideas to stick to. This year I'm going with clean chic and have also really enjoyed mixing a bunch of different patterns and prints, as well as combining things you may not think of, such as black and brown (normally cliche but can be made super chic) and combat boots with lace dresses (coming soon).
What fun twists have you all been putting on your new back to school wardrobes?
May the Prada be with you
Best wishes,
Leah
