Tutu Tuesday

Apparently tutus are in.  
But probably not this way. Sorry Betsy Johnson. And sorry for these outrageously fake fakes too 

For when I want to play pretend ballerina as a grown-up and not feel self-conscious about being ridiculous, I'll reach for this instead:
Bath & Body Works - Pink Chiffon.

Not only a haven for granola stuff

Tired of seeing the same mass-produced accessories over and over again at the mall? Be different and go online instead. Etsy has handmade items crafted by artisans. Each artist brings their own flair. If you're on the hunt for a one-of-a-kind item design, come see the Etsy community's unique stores! Fabric button earrings have been quite popular among the diy crowd. These mini pink floral ones are so nostalgic: 
I do warn you though, Etsy can cost you a pretty penny. These seemingly simple earrings are priced at $7 if I hadn't won them! But hey, all in the support of expression of individuality!
