OOTD // Leather, Tights, and Bows

Vest: Dollhouse   Tshirt: Forever 21   Skirt: (thrifted) Target   Tights: Rue21   Boots: (thrifted) Faded Glory

These are some confused tights, huh? Ha, half stripes, half polka dots! I like to keep people guessing ;b

Keyhole Ring: Philippines   Camera Ring: Claires

"A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart, and can sing it back to you when you forget the words."

Isn't this ribbon-bow detail adorable?
Well, this leather vest is actually a DIY project (You can check out how it looked before I cut it up here). I added those studly bows! They're actually old earrings that are too heavy for me to wear. I've always been frustrated by that purchase, but when I got my new Seventeen magazine, I found the perfect solution for all those over-weight studs I've somehow collected.
Simply pierce them into any of your collared tops! 

Now I've got a totally unique leather vest. I'm really pleased with how it looks. I tried the trick with another button down of mine, and it looks just as great. I'll have to style it and show it to you soon. You should try it out if you've got earrings you don't wear that often and want to freshen up your collared clothes. 

Anyway, as most of you know, I recently found my dog, Prince, after I was afraid he was gone for good. He'd disappeared for two days before we found him wandering at a factory near the trail we'd lost him at. 

During the time he was gone, I realized just how topsy-turvy life can be. I know he's just a dog, and there are people out there who have lost loved ones. However, this incident made me more aware of that. 

Nothing in this life is solid. Something you think is permanent and forever won't necessarily stay that way. So keep that in mind, and never take things for granted! Show the ones you love how much you care, and be thankful for every day you have with them.
