Elbow patch cardigan - F21 via eBay,Tank - ThisIsWhatIDo, Acid purple shorts - F21 (Similar), Cut out boots -  Nasty Gal (Can be found here)  Vogue Hat - Karl Alley via  Karmaloop, Rings - F21, Jewelry stand,

Howdy! It has been a while, but I can assure you (for once with great certainty) that I can now do at least one to two posts a week! I am now a proud owner of the Canon t3i 600D!!! That is my personal birthday/Christmas present to me! I am in love with it and I cannot wait to snap street style! This is a semi-day in the life of post. I will be doing a full one soon. And I bought it on, you guessed it, eBay! Anyway, so my top you might have seen in this post. This is something that I would typically, and did, wear to class. It's comfortable and easy to walk in.The shorts I semi-DIY'd. I added like four holes, more fraying, and spiked the sides. I thought the color didn't need help though. I got the shorts once again at a Forever 21 sale online for $5.99! I had to punk them up a bit more. The cardigan is also from F21, I saw and it was love at first sight. I know Flashes of Style has one too and I think she said it was a bit big, but I didn't care and I wanted it in a large anyway. It had initially sold out on F21. So I was on a mission from that point on. I checked eBay very often for F21 cardigans and when I saw this one, I had to have it and it was a large; I got it for $30. It was new too! It has been a wonderful staple for fall and winter. In the fall I would wear it as a jacket. It's playfully preppy and androgynous and I love pieces like that, that are a nod to the preppy punky way I used to dress. Like here. I think I still do. This hat though, my goodness, I found out about the Vogue hat by mistake actually. But when I did I just NEEDED it. I found out it was by Karl Alley and I bought it along a Christmas present for my friend in their 30% off everything sale. I love this hat! It's a bit shallower than my other snap backs  but I love it! I am definitely getting more Karl Alley hats! They are a bit pricey though, it's $68 for one but they usually have discounts going on all the time so I will be caving. I am already working on the dorm style post and I cannot wait to do it! I also have a haul post to do! I have got to take a nap, I am working a concert tonight! Apparently it's someone famous, never heard of him... Do already have valentine's day plans? What have you DIY'd recently? Comment below and let me know! Kelly out!
