(Top: DIY Vintage High-Low Top, Dress: Forever 21, Hat: Nine West, Bag & Boots: Vintage)

Velvet and floral, one of my favorite combinations! I found this top while out thrifting and it used to be a huge t-shirt/dress thing. That's when I got this grand idea of cutting the front and rounding the back to make a high-low, cropped top. I am pretty proud of myself for this idea :) And I think I will try it more. Hopefully I can do a tutorial sometime to show you guys! 
I really love these beat up boots too. Even though they're pretty scuffed up, I couldn't leave them behind. You can't tell from the photos, but they have this cute little triangle detail across the edge...I love them :)

Hope you guys are having a wonderful week so far! I am having a nice little break from school, soooo nice! I am still happy tomorrow is Friday though ;)

    Velvet and floral are such a lovely combination! Everytime I see you wear that dress I think its got to be vintage, but no, Forever 21. Haha, who knew? Its such a great print <3

  11. I love the velvet and floral combo! And yes, repurposing vintage clothes to be a little more modern is something I always do! I actually just picked up a mint skirt at a ghastly length and I'm going to make it a mini. :) Thrifting is 10 times more fun when items have potential to be great! Love your floral dress and those shoes are too cute. <3

  28. Love the velvet and floral! I cannot wait for the high low top tutorial, what an amazing idea!!! This may have to be my first sewing project on my new machine (though on second thought, may I should try something a little more straight line first... but I guess if I mess it up I could just say it was on purpose??!)
    Hope you are having a terrific monday!

  29. I've been seeing so many bright floral pieces that this darker floral really stands out. Very pretty!
