i've been totes into the necklaces at totokaelo lately, so i picked up some hexnuts from the hardware aisle, to make my own version.
jump ring (from a crafty store)
chain (from a crafty store)
hexnuts (from the hardware store)
1. measure length of chain. (i used 28", but it could be shorter or longer)
2. string on hexnuts. (i used five, but there were eight in the package)
3. attach jump ring to close the chain.

jacket: forever 21, winter 2010 (similar)
dress-ish: forever 21, spring 2011 (exactly)
jeans: forever 21, summer 2010 (similar)
boots: forever 21, winter 2011 (exactly)
apparently i buy all my gray in one place.
and the dress+pants combination, even with a super short dress, will always seem a bit japan circa 2006 to me.
and i am officially jealous of bloggers (and non-bloggers) that live in sunny climes. i am so over clouds.

lime: target (similar)
tomato: thrifted (similar)
gray tights: apt. 9
boots: old navy (similar)
so this is exactly the type of color that i've been so afraid of. all out color blocktastic with no neutral jacket to hid behind. and i totally get it now. being punchy has its advantages.

ochre: brooklyn industries
black: banana republic (similar)
magenta: target (similar)
scarf: thrifted in vegas
boots: brazilian riding boots via ebay (similar)
i figured since both of these colors were in this scarf that they could work together.
oh, and there's snow on my jacket in these photos.
don't worry, it melted. unlike the huge ice mountain at the end of my driveway that i keep scraping up against whilst avoiding my neighbor's recycling cart.
