burlington coat factory expedition in DIY tick sandals


shoes - f21, DIY | shirt - thrifted | tank as skirt - f21 | bag - hype

Headed over to Burlington Coat Factory in search of pretty things. Hmmmmmmm so I found this $300 St. John cape that I'm dying for, I put it on and it screamed for me to never take it off, it's SO comfy and warm and ahhh I can see myself wearing it everywhere in the winter. Sad about the price tag =( Also snapped some quick photos of potential shoe inspo. I love chained detailing so that may be my next project... just have to find the shoe with the right silhouette.

Anyway I found these amazing stretchy platform wedges at forever 21 that are surprisingly comfortable, 5 inches, and decided to ... cover them in thumbtacks. Haha yet again. Except this time I did the whole shoe. Feedback? :P (P.S. Sorry for the outfit repeat I had like 5 minutes to toss on something in the morning).

  21. You are seriously a DIY genius - those shoes look AMAZING! I think I may need to try something like that out myself.

    By the way, I had no clue you were from Northern California - how funny that I moved to the West Coast from the East, and you moved to the East Coast from the West! :P
