So it is a day for dupes. I fell in love with the leather pouch (clutch) from AA. For $50.00 being the mid-range for one, it's a bit out of my price reach for such a simple style. I do adore the different colors available and the hard metal zipper, that kind of makes it industrial looking. So what is a girl like me to do, I just had to have one (ha ha). I went to my local fabric remnant store and bought a yard of white pleather and a yard of faux tan suede. Since I picked out a white pleather I wanted a contrasting colored zipper. I think that it turned out well for my first one. I also lined it with a matching blue floral cotton fabric on the inside. I noticed that the reverse of the pleather was a felt material that would just get nasty with wear.
I received my F21 package in the mail yesterday. These are the suede booties that I recently purchased and posted here. Beyond thrilled that they are actually suede and not a synthetic. I should really spray treat them before I wear them. It would not do if I thrash them on the first day. I know that this outfit isn't really spectacular but to be honest I really don't want to step out of the house today. I would have been perfectly comfortable wearing my p.j.'s in front of the computer all day. (Sigh) to bad my life isn't that luxurious.
What I'm wearing:
- Grey off the shoulder sweatshirt, necklace, & booties- F21
- Denim shorts- OldNavy
