Shiny shiny shiny! I fell in love with this shimmery kimono-style cardigan when I stopped into Zara a couple weeks ago.  Little did I know that I'd be leaving a trail of sparkles wherever I go! Turns out, the lurex/shiny threading used sheds sparkles everywhere. lol! I'm like a modern day Hansel and Gretel. Just follow the trail of glitter! haha.

Are any of you guys as much of a sucker as I am when it comes to sparkly things? I'm so easily distracted. :P

White after Labor Day! Global warming totally negates that outdated rule though, right? Because it's definitely still in the 80's and 90's here in Cali. Also, the blazer is actually a light blush tone that I'm absolutely in LOVE with, primarily because of how much it reminds me of CĂ©line (the French design house, not the Canadian, fabulous though she is).

Also, I finally got around to DIYing these shorts I tweeted about a while ago! I know I'm super late on the trend, but I'm pretty sure these are going to be essential on my trip to Thailand. It was really easy, too! I just grabbed an old pair of jeans that were a little too loose for my liking, and cut the legs off (I used my H&M shorts to figure out what angle and length to cut at). Then, I made some 2 to 1, water to bleach solution, dipped my newly shorn shorts in, and waited! FOREVER. lol. Then I got kinda bored and started splashing upward and adding water for a more subdued effect than the Dries Van Noten pants that inspired this little hack job.

What do you think? :D Any other DIYs you recommend? I rather like getting crafty!
