Flower Power

Yesterday I went to the Dollar Store and bought some fake flowers:

With which I made a hair clip:

I got the idea from Kendi, who did a simple DIY by basically attaching a giant fake mum to an adhesive pin. I did it in probably the most illogical way possible, because I was too lazy to dig out the glue gun. Eventually I may go back and remedy that...

I wore it today to church!

Trenchcoat: Target (gifted)
Top: JCPenney, $5.74
Skirt: B.Moss, thrifted, $3.50
Shoes: H&M, thrifted, $2.50
Belt: Forever 21, $3.50
Hair Clip: Free (DIY)
Earrings: Free (gifted)
Bracelet: Free (gifted)

Cost of DIY: <$1
All in all, this outfit cost me a little over $10. Success? I think yes.


  1. I would never have expected such pretty flowers from the Dollar Store! What a lovely, thrifty job you did with them. (And the whole outfit!)

  2. I also do this with premaid crochet headbands :) You can find those at hobby lobby for un dolla

  3. What a great look for church! I love it. the flower pin looks amazing - would have never thought to go to the dollar store for it.

  4. Hey.. first time here.. :) Lovely blog and especially love the D.I.Ys.. going to try some :)
