Kickass Scarab...

Today is another day that I decided to follow Kimberly's Inspiration Calendar. Today's theme was "Dress with a Major Necklace." Truly, I was already thinking of wearing this necklace since I haven't sported it in far too long, so when I saw the theme for today, this outfit was a no-brainer.
Now, while I did make this necklace (and the matching link bracelet) myself, I totally have to give credit where credit is due. I first saw this pendant over on Erin's blog, and when I saw it at my local craft store I snapped it up and totally rode off her. Imitation is the highest form of flattery, no?


Dress: Target
Cardigan: NY&Co
Shoes: Fioni, thrifted
Earrings: aqua stones (unseen) Claire's
Scroll Bracelet: Claire's
Link Bracelet: made by me
Scarab Necklace: made by me

BTW, please excuse the huge nasty bruise on my leg -- dance team is kicking my keister! Despite being a dancer for almost all of my life, I took several years off from competing or even really seriously practicing when I was in college and for a few years afterward. Despite teaching itty-bitties for a few years since then, my body just doesn't work the same way it used to! Needless to say, joining a competitive hip-hop team may have been a bit ambitious. ;)

PS: now that I have a few posts under my belt, I'm interested in hearing your feedback. What are you interested in seeing here on my blog? Simple outfit posts like I have been doing? Coupons/sale alerts? Analysis?


  1. Thxs Sam for the feedback on my page. Whats a "gorrila pod" and where can I get one? I really like your outfit today.very cute.. and your craft projects turned out .wow!

    Ok, so for your blog, i just love to see fashion ideas. I wouldnt mind seeing some of those polyvore's that you can come up with.

  2. a gorillapod is a tripod with bendable legs that can wrap around just about anything, so you dont necessarily need a perfect, flat surface to set up on. you can get them just about anywhere -- just do a google search for it.
