Minty Moments

I don’t generally post my Instagrams here – I figure that if you wanted to see them, you’d just follow along.

Alas, two recent Instagrams required just a little more explanation.

First – this necklace.  I made it at 4am on Saturday – err, Sunday morning.  I’d wanted a Noble House necklace forever and decided to attempt to make my own, using these beads.  I’m not going to post a tutorial (I’m sure you could figure it out on your own,) because I don’t feel comfortable doing tutorials for Etsy brands and emerging designers.  I highly encourage you to check out her shop – it’s all sorts of amazing.

Secondthis dress is everything.  I got it from Asos and it’s just perfect.  I don’t remember the last time I loved an article of clothing so much.  I put it on and just feel pretty.  The fit, the fabric, the pattern… love.  I can’t stop gushing about it and had to share it here.  I ordered it in black, too.

      thank you! Agree – I think it’s fine to recreate something you see on Etsy for yourself, but teaching the world to do it isn’t the best form. 🙂

      Thank you Lauren! I love it.

    I think that’s great that you don’t do tutorials of items from emerging designers or from Etsy! 

    • graceatwood says 6.19.12

      Thanks Bettina! I just don’t think it’s right. It’s one thing to make it for yourself ($175 is for me, personally, a bit much to spend for a necklace,) but I know how hard these designers work so just couldn’t do it!
