Perfect Moment Monday: Bling for Mama

Lori over at Weebles Wobblog says that “Perfect Moment Monday is more about noticing a perfect moment than about creating one. Perfect moments can be momentous or ordinary or somewhere in between.”

I’ve had a series of perfect moments while getting ready to go to BlogHer. I was trying to figure out what I wanted to wear and was trying to save money so I decided to deconstruct and remake an outfit I had. I was given an outfit made of beautiful blue material but the cut was totally unflattering. The shirt was a long sleeved shirt with a boxy cut and. the pants were kind of shapeless.

After a few days work, I ended up with this (please ignore the poofy hair)…
Then I went to Avenue’s web site to check out some boots Miss Tori from The Winding Road to Parenthood bought and stumbled across their sale. With the coupon code, I got this dress for under $30…
The, I found this awesome watch and bracelet…

and this costume jewelry set…
and, I got both the watch bracelet set and the costume jewelry set for under $10.

Go check out the other perfect moments at this week’s Perfect Moment Monday on Weebles Wobblog.

    The blue outfit is gorgeous. I’m impressed with your talent and vision.

    Great job on the new outfit you recreated! That is a sexy black dress, too! Oh, and the jewelry. Maybe I should go back and do some more shopping!

    Oooh…the jewellery completely won me over! Too cool!

    And I loved the dresses too. The material for the blue dress is velvet?
