Fauxthropologie and Upcoming DIY's

A few weeks ago, I shared with you the Anthropologie jacket I was seriously lusting after. Exhibit A:

Even after trying to convince myself multiple times it was worth the splurge, I just couldn't plunk down that much money on it. But I still needed a jacket to help me transition from summer to fall, before its time to start busting out the winter coats. Exhibit B:

Old Navy jacket, H&M flower pin

While the detailing isn't quite as cute as the Anthropologie one, this jacket was a fraction of the price and will definitely do the job. I attached the leopard-print flower pin to add a girly touch/make it a little fauxthropologie (word stolen from Kendi). I also got a cream flower for days when I'm feeling a little more demure. Adding these extra touches myself has me inspired to do some DIY projects when I get home. First, I want to make some more flower pins. Secondly, I want to make my own version of this sweatshirt, since I couldn't find it in stores:

Forever 21 Pretty Bow Athletic Top

I plan on finding a similar-shaped sweatshirt at Goodwill or Walmart/Target and attaching my own bow. Wouldn't this sweatshirt be perfect for going to class in? Super comfortable, but a step up from a plain hoodie.

Your version of the jacket at a fraction of the cost is very clever on your part. It looks adorable. I agree with you on the cute sweatshirt too.

I think you made some great choices. I really like the jacket.

p.s. I tagged you on my blog. I hope you play along.

I got that leaf ring from a stand in China town! It was pretty inexpensive if I remember correctly!

ps, cute DIY jacket!

what a great idea on the anthropologie jacket! i wanted the lift off jacket for the longest time but couldn't justify buying it for that much. i'll have to try that out after the challenge is over... :)

Fantastic blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?
I'm hoping to start my own blog soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
Would you recommend starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option?
There are so many choices out there that I'm totally confused .. Any tips? Cheers!

Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?
My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I
ended up losing several weeks of hard work due to no back up.
Do you have any solutions to protect against hackers?

Anyways, if you have any recommendations or tips for new blog owners please share.
