Adorable Tess Accessories

Okay- here is Tess

See her floral femmi pins?

I think they are soooo adorable!

She says she bought them at Forever21

but I bet we can make something like this...


Just let it be known-- she made her red/black /orange skirt!

What an amazing job! Way to go Tesse!

She is a Senior this year in High School and blogging

Mostly about fashion.

I stumbled upon her site- while googling about Shabby Apple...
(i am a little green with envy- some how she scored a free dress from them!)
I love her post about Natural Beauty.

She is a fashionista - if I ever met one.
i love all her ideas about layering and playing with patterns.
I am a very boring. I usually have a solid top, and a print skirt. Simple.

She wears prints and stripes and floral etc... all together and makes it look adorable
and effortless.

Here are her thoughts on pairing patterns-
"When mixing patterns the main thing to keep in mind is balance.
The patterns on the top are smaller than the pattern in the skirt
Also keep only one color pallet going on.
I use the belt to break up the patterns and help it not look too busy."

I'm going to ask her to guest post too...
i think she has a great eye for fashion... and I love that she raids her mom and sisters closets.

She also found a really cute headband at the BYU-provo floral shop...
I think we should try to re-create.

Chesley- my new friend over at "Make You Over" is so adorable and helps women (young and old alike) find their style.

She was asked to teach a lesson on Modesty- and I pulled this picture of the hand out she passed out for the class.
I like the idea of finding your own style-
keeping it simple...
I mean- Heavenly Father really doesn't care
what we wear as long as it is modest, clean, neat...
it is more important what we do with our lives-
How we present ourselves, package ourselves
tells alot about:
-our beliefs about ourself
-who we truly are
-our standards
- our values
I asked her to guest post.
We'll see

Some of my friends are upset about SHADE clothing going out of business.

(It was an on-line store where you could buy modest dresses, shirts and most importantly- undershirts that make everything you wear modest.) Confession: I bought a dress and 2 shirts on their site 2 weeks ago- such a great sale! They did have some adorable things....

But don't panic! We have options- sisters!

To show what a small world we live in...

my freshman/college roommates-sister

has a clothing site called

Molly's Clothing

2 years ago or so... my friend called ... trying to spread the word about her sisters site.

So to support a sistah out... (or a friend's sistah in this case)

I bought two Molly's shirts-

The mini cami-- which is like a half shirt... great to wear under dresses and tops where you just need added covering up on top.

Then the classic cap sleeve shirt-- to wear under other shirts .. that might need coverage up top, and on the length at the waist.

I've loved both of them. They are having a few sales now too.

It will be hard to find an affordable replacement for Shade: their shirts and dresses were cute.

But for finding the undershirts .. we still have options.
