Melted Mint

I've been a fan of this pale mint green for the past 3-4 years (ever since Mint Candy Apple by Essie came out). That's why when stores started making everything in this color for spring summer, I had no complaints.  It's one of the few colors that compliment my skin tone. I avoid orange, and yellow as it clashes with my yellow undertones, and coral/reds as it brings out my blemishes. This mint green is perfect when you want to bring out that non-existent tan that you have been nursing all winter.

After wearing this top once, I decided to wash and iron it. Like the well educated detail oriented fashion student I am, I accidentally set my iron too high and melted a huge hole in it. I was so devastated that I went back the next day to purchase another one but they were sold out in my size. I settled for a larger size. I think I'm just thankful that this was a $20 top and not more.

    Here's a trick for anyone without a steamer (bring your outfit into the bathroom while your taking a shower)..

    Love that you were ahead of the crowd on the mint green trend!!

  6. HAHA Oh my god, I did this to my last project, I had just finished making it and managed to burn a hole - so I burnt a few more to pretend it was 'made that way' hahahaha!

    At least you could find another - bigger is always better than smaller! :)

    Jealous of your hair too, gorgeous girly.

  9. Sorry about your top. Do you have a steammer? It's safer to steam chiffon top.
