Pink + Reptile

Camisole: Rodarte for Target {similar here}
Skirt: Forever 21 {similar here and similar if you're petite}
Heels: Christian Louboutin "Decollete" {here and similar here and here}
Clutch: Made by me (inquire for pricing)
Earrings: thanks to Anjolee {here}
Necklace: Made by me (freshwater pearls hand-knotted on silk thread)
Bracelets: LOFT {here} and thanks to INPINK {in silver}
Sunglasses: Tom Ford "Anouk" {similar here and here}

Happy Monday friends! I'd like to show you two new things I made - first is a foldover metallic reptile print clutch for a friend. If you remember the clutches I made for the giveaway earlier this year (and the red vinyl clutch I use occasionally), this is basically the same thing but a little longer so the top part can fold over. If you're interested in your own, contact me for pricing (I have both the bronze metallic and red vinyl fabric still available).

The second thing I made is this pearl necklace. I used to make and sell jewelry much more frequently, but all my supplies have been in storage for about three years. I rummaged through them recently and found this strand of champagne colored freshwater potato pearls. I thought it would make a pretty necklace and happened to have beige silk knotting thread - fate! About an hour later, I have this pretty pearl knotted necklace - simple enough. Thank you so much for visiting today!

Also, INPINK Jewelry is offering 30% off to readers with the code DAPPER30. I've really enjoyed all my INPINK jewelry and wear it frequently, even more than what's pictured on my blog. Check it out - they have some pretty cool affordable pieces!
