Firmoo Fierce

First and foremost  I am overly excited about my new online vintage boutique Becoming.! Y'all get a sneak peak of my boutique, before my business partner and I do our grand opening!  So if you see something you like, be sure to email me to snatch it up!  We eventually hope to donate 50% of our profits to bi-annual charities (after our blog takes off)!  This vest is for sale on Becoming. too!


Upcycled Denim Vest | Becoming.  
How to upcycle a denim vest: Do you like this soft rocker chick look? This vest was previously a long sleeved denim jacket! I actually cut off the sleeves, added studs, ripped it up a bit, and dip dyed lace fabric into a cross for the back. This project took a few hours with the help of my BFF! :)
Crop Top | American Eagle        Skirt | Element Style Boutique
Accessories | Element Style Boutique & Gifts from friends       
Sunnies | c/o Firmoo



The Sunnies. These sunnies were a gift to me from Firmoo!  Firmoo has a virtual try-on feature, reviews on Facebook, and a chic look for a portion of the price! If you are a first-time customer, you can actually get a free pair too  HERE!  You'd just pay for shipping.
Oh, and each pair comes with all these accessories!
My life as of now is so beautiful... I mean beyoutiful.  My close friend Molly just got married Saturday. I was on the decorating committee- it turned out beautiful.  When she walked down the isle, glowing and spirit filled, I cried.  My dear little Molly is now entering a new season in her life.  She is like a grandma in her wisdom and a young child in the flesh (she is an adorable shortie).  This was my first wedding, and it changed my view on marriage.  Molly and Karl are such a Christ centered couple- they fill me with awe, and I know will inspire people daily.  This is how I want my marriage to be.  Amen to that.  You know those people that amaze you beyond words?  This is them...and I am more than blessed to have had Molly as a part of my life the past 4 years.  

Shop Becoming.   If you see this post, you can catch a Sneak Peek of my online vintage shop: Becoming.  The hope is that enough will be sold, to donate 50% profits made to different charities!  I am also looking into packaging in all eco-friendly materials!  Giving back is one of the most important things in life... why not look good while doing it?  Shop Becoming... where vintage potentiality meets edgy actuality.

  35. The 'fruit jelly lipgloss' is one which has a shiny/matte effect when applied and tastes eerily EXACT like the flavor we choose! I chose choclate and gawwdd. It.Was.The.Same.Flavor. I can just lick my lips when I'm bored. LOL

    (I already replied to your comment in my post but I commented in yours to let you know that I DID comment on mine. *pardon me if i sound crazy*)

    Amore,
