ten for fashion

The beautiful and stylin' Claire of Spinning Threads recently tagged me to share 10 things I love with my readers.  I decided to follow her lead and talk about fashion related loves.  I wore a downplayed version of this outfit (no hat and different shoes) to a fashion shoot I styled for Ef Magazine over the weekend.  The shoot was styled entirely from second hand, thrifted and vintage clothing and accessories and I wore my new thrifted dress from Salvation Army for the occassion.  I can't wait to see the final results of the photoshoot and will be sure to share them with you!

Can you see where Marley my cat is?

Ring- Vintage (gifted from the boy); Nail polish- Happy Birthday by Deborah Lippman (over a red polish)

Dress & Belt- Thrifted; Hat- Alfred Sung for Zellers; Tights- Walmart; Shoes- Charlotte Russe
