Day 19 in my 30 Days of Outfits Challenge: November 19.
Falling behind again!
Today I was at home, finishing up the graphics, posters, and props for the shoot on Saturday. I wanted to be comfortable but warm, considering the temperature is dropping fast around here.;-)
I love the Elsa Peretti-designed Bean Necklace for Tiffany’s…but I am, above all, a cheapskate, so I made my own version. Using Art Clay Silver was really fun and I was amazed at the versatility of it, though it was definitely a learning experience! Real silver pieces that you first mold like clay…then fire with an open flame? It sounds bizarre but once you try, you’ll be hooked! (And if you’re a PolyClay junkie, you’ll probably love ACS too!)
I adore my legwarmer leggings! I have never found any here in the US; I always have to go to Japan to find them. This pair I have practically worn to pieces (which is what I did with my last pair). They are so warm, and the legwarmer part at the calves really balances out my legs visually. Love does not even begin to describe how I feel about these leggings!
I added some silver shoe elastics to play off the silver in the necklace, rings, and cardigan embellishment. My DIY Shoe Elastics tutorial is here.
Hope everyone’s having a great weekend!
