simple grey and black


I got dressed in a hurry this morning, so this outfit is rather simple, with no accessories. =] I love this dress, it was in the box that Brenna gave me. Thanks again, Brenna! ;]

I'm toying with the idea of hosting a fashion week. I just need a theme...I have a few in mind, but I can't decide. Does anyone have any ideas on themes?

Anne of Green Gables fashion week: last day!

I wanted to draw a picture for the Anne of Green Gables week, but I was so busy that it took a while to get around to it. So here I am, posting this just in the nick of time. It's almost midnight! =]

I chose to draw Anne being the Lady of Shalot in the old rowboat on the lake. This is right before the boat starts taking in water, while she's still lying down, with the flowers in her hand.

This is the last day of the Anne of Green Gables fashion week. It's been a blast! Thanks so much, Ashley. =D

I have some exciting news coming up soon....I'm almost to my 100th post, and I'm thinking about having a special giveaway! So stay tuned for the details on that. =]

Anne of Green Gables day seven: pearl ring tutorial

Last year I made a pearl ring and forgot about it. A few months ago, I found it and fell in love with it and wore it a million times. a couple days ago, I wore it for my Anne of Green Gables photoshoot. I chose to wear it because Anne loved pearls and her engagement ring had pearls on it. 

To make the ring you will need:

a pearl shank button


silver beading wire


wire cutters.

1. First, make a wire circle that fits the finger you will wear the ring on. I used a piece of pipe that was the same thickness as my finger to shape the wire. Loop the wire two or three times to make the circle thicker.

2. Next, cut a piece of wire about two to three inches long. Draw it through the loop on the pearl button. begin wrapping the wire around your wire circle to attach the pearl to the ring. Use the extra wire to wrap around the pearl. 

Then you're done! Enjoy your beautiful ring. =]

Anne of Green Gables day four: Modern Anne photoshoot

My sister and I do not need an excuse to have a photoshoot, but today we do have an excuse: Ashley's Anne of Green Gables Fashion Week! 

In these pictures I am dressed in a modern Anne outfit. Anne loves the color mint green and she loves her pearls. I am wearing a green oversized sweater, which Anne would have found very comfortable, pearl earrings and a pearl ring. 

One of Anne's favorite activities is reading a good book and eating an apple.

She is also a talented writer.

Coming up next is a historical Anne photoshoot, a tutorial showing how to make Anne's pearl ring, and maybe some art. I'm so excited! Thank you Ashley, for hosting this fashion week. =D
