When it comes to fashion, most of us categorize it as something that should be in, trendy, up to date. I personally am not a trend setter or a Fashionista even. I am not a person who bothers much about trashing or bad mouthing some dude who walks down the road wearing a purple polka dotted pants and a bright pink and purple striped top. I am also not a person who enjoys big exclusive brands or over expensive handbags. I would rather give all that money spent on a ten thousand dollar shoe to charity. With that said, that does not mean I am unable to dress up and look the way I want to look.
I decided to upcycle this jacket with felt candy. I made felt candies and bows in pastel colors to give this a really sweet look. I also paired this up with a cute pink cotton candy skirt. It added a really nice texture to the outfit and made it even quirkier. The high socks were actually cut outs from an old sweater I don’t ever use anymore and I pulled the sleeves on top of a pair of beige socks. I also wore beige baroque wedges I got in Japan and I love them. They have been with me for years now. The bow ring was also another DIY project. Carmen who happens to be a good friend on YouTube sent me a bunch of crochet pastel bows to play with and I thought it would look really cute on a ring.
