Thursday Threads- Splash of Mustard

I have started a Look Book.
I was hesitant at first..
because, 
well everyone on there seems to wear such expensive clothes! 
I do most of my shopping online, in the sale bins, at thrift stores, or handmade.

But then I figured.. why not?
Why can't I brag about my cheap-but-still-cute clothes, 
my thrift store finds, and my favorite etsy shops?

So here it goes. So far I will just do outfit posts on Thursdays. 
Paint and glue is almost ALWAYS visible on my hands...
(And clothes, and shoes, and doggies)

Mustard Yellow Slouch Hat- 
Self Made, but available at- Talk2thetrees
Floral Top- Forever21.com
Blue Jeans- Forever21.com
Moccasins- Vintage Find
Lily Necklace- JeTadoreDesigns
Messenger Bag- Target




I've never done outfit posts before.. 
I'll try to get the hang of it.
.. so, how did I do?

Any advice or tips?

  2. Love it! Who says you have to wear expensive to look good and I love the mustard slouch hat. Good luck with the look book I think it's a great idea with the way you're doing it.

    PS: How do you make your blog so customized/personal ?? I want to do something like that for my writing blog - but I have to work with the layouts I'm given. Just love yours.

  12. I love the photos and its autumn feel. One advice though, the photos you posted on lookbook wasn't the best way to see your overall look. Your shoes were not shown properly. Best way to post pics on lookbook is to have a full body shot of what your wearing (like 1st photo here) then closer look or half body shot...

    but then again, what do I know... I don't use lookbook LOL!

    Abygail, thanks sooo much for the advice! Next time I'll try to post better photos on lookbook.. I'm no good at new websites at first. :)

    Thanks Claire! I totally forgot about the bag! I got it at target. I'll edit the post right now!
    xoxo
