I feel silly doing outfit posts. Since I love looking at other people's outfits on a daily basis and I thought I looked kind of cute today, I thought I'd give it a go. Also, can I just say how brilliant the sales have been recently? I bought all of the pieces in this outfit on mega sale, sale on the sale on the sale items on the sale, uhh you get the picture. Get out there, people, before I buy it all!
Also, I wanted to show you the bracelet that we made. I had seen this tutorial ages ago, but never had gotten around to doing it. So yesterday we finally did it. Sydney and I worked together braiding it, if you did this by yourself you have some serious skills. Props go out to you, Dawg!
Have you been into a hardware store lately? I have been in one many a times and I feel like I'm not completely incompetent when it comes to the use of some power tools and construction-y things. But the nuts and bolts aisle is re-donc-u-lous! A friend and I were looking for these brass hex nuts and do you know how big that aisle is, made up of every kind of nut and bolt imaginable. There are never ending drawers with different labels that might as well be in another language.
What does it all mean??
After looking through a number of drawers, I finally found one lone package of brass hex nuts in the right size. I picked it up in triumph! There was only one hex nut in the mangled package. As soon as I picked it up, the little guy fell out of the package fell and rolled somewhere never to be seen or heard of again.
We did eventually find what we were looking for, but seriously the hardware store can be a scary/hilarious place. I hope you have more success in finding these hex nuts than we did when making your own bracelet. You know you want to make one now! LOVE.IT.
