River Island chunky cardigan (similar here), Prabal Gurung for Target lace blouse with leather collar (similar here), Thrifted Banana Republic quilted clutch, Cheap Monday high-waisted jeans (with DIY rips), Bershka half-frame sunglasses (similar here), Elizabeth and James suede wedge booties (we love these ones too).



Lauren has always been about DIY projects (for our recent Gatsby party to celebrate two friends' birthdays, she made a trip to the craft store to buy supplies for us all to make our own 20s headbands) so I love that instead of buying a pair of pre-ripped jeans she took an old pair that needed some new life and DIH (did it herself). A few expertly made rips later, and these old jeans were perfect to rock during the day with a sleek, lacy button down and chunky knit. And they would translate just as well into night by exchanging the knit for a well tailored blazer. CYOA! (that's choose your own adventure for those that didn't grow up in the 80s.)

  23. In the long run, the Bonds won't be effectively compete with the runescape gold farmers. Here is why.1. Bonds cost more money for the 'gold buyer'. And will continue to do so as they crash.
