my style: earrings pt. 2 & holiday shopping

Remember that time I was like “oh I’m a blogger now” and then dropped off the face of the earth…well I’m back!

Soooooo…I thought I would show off some of the earrings I have collected in the past few months bc it’s shopping season and maybe you need some ideas. Also, in case you’re in the area (Santa Fe), I provided some info on a few local shopping events…enjoy!

I, Carrie, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’17. I endeavor to wear one self-made or refashioned garment/accessory/shoe each day for the month of May 2017.

Sooooo…just a couple hours ago a friend messaged me and asked if I was going to participate in Me-Made-May and I was like “huh?”, fast forward to 20 minutes ago and I am now signed up and ready to go (kinda).

Me-Made-May started in 2010 as a challenge to individuals who like to sew to wear the garments they have made with the goal of “improving your relationship with your handmade wardrobe, and perhaps also learning about yourself and your creativity.”

My goal is to wear at least one item I have sewn or refashioned each day for the month of May. Most likely there will be repeats, but it will be fun to style them differently each time. I’m not going to post daily but will try to take a pic every day and post a weekly-ish roundup. Today my refashioned item is these Converse Chuck Taylor Allstars that I added spikes to awhile back, I refer to these as my concert shoes:


I wasn’t prepared today, so I don’t have a pic of me wearing them, but rest assured I’ll be rockin these when I go pick up the little one from school today 😉

UPDATE: yeah this didn’t happen minus a few days, I was ill-prepared…next year!
