Happy Monday, DANDY friends!
Today I wore “my Hot Pants” (under my pants) to work. In honor of one of my favorite bloggers “DO THE HOTPANTS” -Dana Suchow and her recent post “Photos I wish I didn’t Photoshop”. Read here –> http://dothehotpants.com/2014/08/04/photos-i-wish-i-didnt-photoshop/ I’ve been a fan of her blog for a while now, and was surprised when she “came clean” about using Photoshop to fix her “flaws”. RESPECT GUURL!!!
I have been blogging for a little over two months now, and can honestly say that the only reason why I didn’t start earlier, was because I didn’t think I was “skinny, pretty, or cool enough”. I got over that quick! Because I accept the fact that no one is perfect and that we are all “unique god damn snowflakes!” Suchow’s mission is to inspire readers like me, to accept themselves and learn to love their flaws, big and small.
I want to let her know that I am INSPIRED!! and that I accept my big hips, thighs and freckles.
Yes, I’m wearing a huge burger t-shirt to work.
I got my grandma’s hips, I love her and I love me.

Lately, I’ve been obsessed with tassels, and when I came across this statement necklace I just had to “make it”. With my own twist and not green!
Here’s what you’ll need:
A simple chain necklace
15 MM Gauge Jump Rings
Start by making the tassels.
Using half of one embroidery thread link, evenly wrap the thread around 4 of your fingers back and forth creating a “circle”.
Then carefully slide the “circle” off your fingers maintaining the thread wrapped in a circle/loop.
Now using the jewelry pliers open up a jump ring, and slide it in and out the thread circle.
Using your scissors, cut about 3-4 inches of the embroidery thread and wrap it around the top of the thread circle (close to the jump ring) then, make a tight knot to secure your tassel.
With the scissors cut across the loop end of the tassel, letting the thread hang loose.
Voila! You have a tassel. (Now you only need about 10 more!) Repeat these steps to make more tassels. Finally, using the jewelry pliers attach your tassels to the chain necklace by closing the jump around the chain.
There’s one! Now attach the rest of the tassels evenly spaced.
And your done!
Here’s how I wore it to work today!
That’s my I would rather be crafting face! lol

I have only been in Austin for about a year and a half now, but my experience in this city wouldn’t be the same without 6th street. I have yet to meet anyone in Austin who doesn’t have a bizarre if not delirious memory of a night on 6th Street “Dirty Sixth”. Let’s blame the cheap drinks, food trucks and live music for that, but there is something here for everyone.
Dirty Sixth is also the home to the original Alamo Drafthouse Cinema which is where I was headed to, but not before snapping some pictures of my OOTD. Lately i’ve been wearing a lot of black, maybe because I’m grieving over turning 25 this past weekend. I am happy to have made it this far, and hope to share more over the next quarter of a century.
