Off the Cuff

A friend texted me this morning reminding me that I hadn't blogged since June. What the hell happened to me?! I've had a crazzzzy month with the Winnipeg Folk Festival, a bunch of concerts, my 21st birthday, visits from friends from out of town, and a million other things. I've been having a ton of fun but just haven't seem to have time to post. But, enough excuses.

Juun.J never fails to be one of my favorite collections season after season. The S/S 2010 show was where I first fell in love with the idea of the suit jumpsuit I shared with you a few posts ago. This season was no different. The main thing I was lusting over from this collection, however, was the gold cuffs. A little easier to emulate than the suit jumpsuit, I might add. So naturally I took to Etsy to see what I could find. The shop I came accross was called Bare Naked Findings and they have quite a few different styles/shapes of cuffs to choose from. I just got them in today and I couldn't be happier. They are well made but still flexible enough to fit my wrists.

I've got a few more things I'm really excited to share with you guys in the coming days. It's been unbelievably hot in Winnipeg recently. Tough to be creative with your wardrobe when it feels like +42°C (+107°F). Hopefully it cools down just a wee bit in the next few days so I can have fun with my clothes again.

And don't forget, once I reach 400 blog followers I'll be doing a giveaway, so make sure you follow my blog! And while you're at it, why not follow my twitter too!! ;)

man, so jealous! i wanted this look because celine did a flat gold cuff just like this. like you, i also immediately turned to etsy but never once found a comparable pair! (this was months ago).

and aside from my sartorial jealousy, this is a great look!
