Fashionista Friday :: Tripod and First Feature

So between freshly painted walls and a new camera, I decided to use the ol’ tripod this week.  It makes me feel so professional!DSC_0096 Shirt: Ross

Sweater: JC Penny W/coupon

Skirt: TJ Maxx

Necklace: thrift store choker.  I made it longer by tying some ribbon to the ends and then attached my Pleated Poppy flower pin.  I have been seeing this style done a lot at craft shows.  You can use bracelets and turn them into necklaces with a little ribbon!  Too cute!

Headband: Charlotte Rousse OutletDSC_0151Jacket: JC Penny w/coupon (this season, also comes in black)

Boots: Burtlington Coat Factory

Knee High Socks: Target (the whole sock under boots thing is fantastic!  So much warmer and comfortable!)

Glasses: Sears—Baby Phat.  They have some bling on the front.  I tend to wear my glasses instead of contacts when I am sick or super tired.  It puts me in the mood to allow myself to be tired and lazy.   DSC_0167 Dress: Ross

  1. Wow you are just too cute! I love all your clothes! And the white flowered headband is adorable, too! The little girl is so sweet...I'm going to head on over to her blog now (:

  2. It's been awhile since I've commented, but this one inspired me. Love the tripod/model look, altho I will miss those "holding the camera to the mirror" shots! I always enjoy your posts so much and I love the new baby fashionista. Ann

  3. Great idea, that baby is adorable, she'd look great in rags :)

    You look so cute this week!

  4. Ashley, LOVE LOVE the pics this week. You could seriously sell them. Also, thanks so much for featuring my little doodle bug! :)


  5. I love getting my son's clothes at thrift stores. They always have tons of cute stuff in great condition. And at arounnd $1-2 a piece, you can't beat the prices, especially sine babies outgrow their clothing so fast.

  6. I love all your looks. I have never been able to find anything at the thrift but maybe I need to look HARD now that I'm a SAHM with 3 guys to dress. That little girl is darling cute!

  7. You're so stinkin' cute! All of your outfits are fab! I love the idea of tying a ribbon to a choker. I have to try that for sure.

  8. Can I have your wardrobe? And your house? :)
