On Nnenna’s Needles #11

Camera Case

Just a quick post to show you the little camera case I made a few years back.  I sized the case to fit my little point-and-shoot and I followed a chart to make the star pattern on both sides.
Tell me: How do you store your camera?

Also, I’m going to see Cynthia Leive, Editor-in-Chief of Glamour, this afternoon at a Master’s Tea!  I don’t often hear about a lot of fashion-related events happening in my area, so I’m really excited for this one!

Spring Shopping Begins

As I mentioned yesterday, I’ve already started shopping for spring styles online and in stores, so I thought I would share with you what I have bought so far!

Forever 21:
$11.50

I included this romper in my spring picks in this post and I talked about how it’s taken me a little while to jump onto the romper bandwagon.  However, I think with the right fit and color/pattern, they can look super stylish, so I picked up this one!  The price is hard to beat and I love the combination of gray and yellow, especially considering that my closet is lacking a lot of yellow pieces.

$22.80

You can’t quite tell in this picture, but all of these little dots are stars.  You guys know how much I regretted not buying the last star-print dress that I saw on the Forever 21 website, so I made up for that by buying this one!  I mean, how perfect is this dress for me, seriously?!  It has stars and a pretty classic silhouette- both qualities are more than enough to convince me!

$14.80

This is another item that I spotted online, but I hadn’t seen in stores until I visited my local Forever 21 back home.  I thought this print was just too adorable to pass up!

$9.80

So I am finally ready to try the maxi trend.  I have seen many petite girls rocking them and there was a good article by Rachel Zoe in Glamour about how to wear the trend, so I’m excited!  I think this neutral one is a good place to start.

$13.99

Even though the weather was quite warm when I bought this, I couldn’t leave behind this sweater on sale.  I love the creamy color and cable knit, it has the perfect slouchy/relaxed fit, and it’s so soft!

Goodwill:
$3.95

I couldn’t resist sharing this skirt again because I love it so much!  The color is perfect and the way it flows is dreamy.  Chelsea wrote a great post about transitioning pieces between the seasons and I can’t wait to wear this skirt and try her tip of wearing longer skirts in bright spring colors!

 

Target:
Dolce Vita for Target Rope Wedge Sandals
Xhilaration Tawny Wedge Sandals

Last week, I got an email form Target that said that they were having a ‘Buy One- Get One 50%’ sale on shoes and purses, so I knew I had to take advantage of the sale!  I’ve seen wedges popping up everywhere and I’ve been obsessing over finding some new spring wedges, so I decided to purchase these two pairs.  With the discount and free shipping, my total cost ended up being around $42 which I thought was pretty awesome!  I think the first pair will be super versatile and once again I’m trying to branch out from only buying black shoes.  However, I couldn’t resist grabbing the Tawny Wedges, which I’ve loved ever since I saw them on Kenzie!

Tell me: What trends are you excited to try this spring?

A Pearl Tee Please

Did you guys have a nice weekend?  I certainly could have spent my weekend more productively, but I did have a good time with friends, as well as applied to a couple more jobs.  As graduation gets closer and closer, I get more and more nervous about finding a job!  But really, what I want right now is for this weather to make up its mind so that spring can come and stay!

Since the warmer weather is not cooperating here, I had to wear tights with this outfit.  I got this t-shirt with the pearly neckline on sale at Charlotte Russe for $10 and I absolutely love it!  It gives the outfit a dressy feel and matches perfectly with my earrings.  Also, this skirt was a steal at Forever 21 for $6.80 and because of the waistband, I can easily fold it and wear it at different lengths.

Also, I ordered some things earlier in the week and these packages should be arriving tomorrow so I am quite excited!  No more shopping for a little while though as I need to earn back all the moola that I spent over spring break!  Has anybody else been doing some online shopping recently?  If so, what did you buy?

Send me a little hello on twitter– I’d love to chat with you! :D
