Stars in Space

I am starting as a new leaf, on the verge of bringing my self-esteem back up. I changed into a different major/minor, about to resign out of my current job, and I am heading forward to a prosperous future. I am a bit scared, but I think I will do okay in the end.

Closet Clean Up

I just started my little online thrift shop on It is kind of like Etsy, except you can actually post used items that are not vintage or items that are not made prior to 1987. Now, I have a place to sell while my closet stays clean!

So far, I have three listings at the moment: black ankle boots in a size 6.5, Michael Kors jet set crossbody bag, and a sheer dip hem maxi skirt for XL.

Decorative Collars!

I'm aware that embroidered collars craze is nothing new, especially since they're almost everywhere in most trendy stores now-- studded collars, intricate laced collars, beaded collars, detachable gaudy collars, etc. I have to admit that I love that decorative stuff, although I didn't feel the need to splurge my money on that particular pretty item since I already have a plain blouse to do my "DIY" beading work on its collar.

Aside from the palette of coffee colors, I'm a fan of pasty colored objects--even with pearl beads! I decided to bead these little pasty babies on my collar. So voila! I'm pretty content with this outcome.

Perhaps I should just make my own jeweled-like detachable peter pan collar.

What I've Been Wearing: Red Toggle Coat

This coat sure kept me warm for these past several weeks of Winter.
