CROPPED LACE FANTASY

Shorts 005

oh, hello ugly truck who is always in my photos... grrrr, your rude.

Today was such a killer day; there weren't any clouds, all blue skies and a fall breeze. Although shorts aren't always a fall necessity, I felt quite righteous in them today. Had to transition into flats for my outfit because I wear 4"-6" heels on a daily basis and it's wearing my feet down. These little Dolce Vita flats have been THROUGH IT...as you can see. Can you also notice the way these shorts give me quite a diaper effect? So rude, you shorts. Work has been fairly slow so I've kept busy with more shredding and more styling; need a laptop at work to keep even more busy with my blog, website and more. Anyone ready to donate to my "I'm broke, need a netbook, are you rich?" fund? :)

And I apologize guys about not showing you how I did my shredded tops. I had a few comments on my Chictopia about how I did it and how look it took. SORRY :)

Would you guys prefer a picture-to-picture how-to or just my words on how I did it? Which is easier to understand? Comment below! Reason I'm asking is because I definitely did not document how I did it. One thing I want to definitely point out is I obviously didn't just come out of my butt about this idea. I got it from the designer, Raquel Allegra, so make sure you know she gets the credit!!

Also, I'm moving on November 1st and I couldn't be more excited. I was supposed to have a dinner potluck for all the bay area bloggers interested in coming but unfortunately I'm going to have to postpone that. I need to organize my life before I throw some sort of fiesta. But don't worry ladies, it's still going to happen. I promise. Most likely it will happen the following Sunday so FYI. :)
