Here's my Version

I have 3 weddings to attend this Summer and Fall and I am looking for a nice accessory,
such as a new BELT
which is really HUGE this Spring, Summer even in the Fall.
I love, love J Crew. Who doesn't right? Ok, I have been wanting to buy this

tie belt for a spring and summer accessory. I talked to my friend Hedda 2 weeks ago and we were just talking and wanting to buy this. BUT... yeah there is a BUT, we refuse to pay $68.00 before tax. We would rather buy a dress or a top or bottom. Then she told me to get the flower pin.

I checked it and it was $48.00 before tax. Same thing I could use the money to buy a top, pants or dress. I got home and a light bulb turned ON! I got my dried or decorative flowers, that I've had for a long time from Potterybarn, oopss sorry. I cut it, glued it on a satin ribbon...VOILA!

I made orange,red and yellow, I still have purple
and blue.

I apologize if you see me this summer
with these flowers.
This also inspired me to use a pin
which I've seen my friends with their
new baby girls with headbands and ribbons
The yellow ribbon was the prototype
I sewn a pin on it to
put it on my headband or my straw hat

This is what I wore to Church today

I can use it with my shorts, pants
and dress.
I am so excited, it is not as gorgeous as Jcrew's
but it really saved me a lot of money and after all I can afford to buy this dress
and tie the ribbon. Now I have to decide which one to buy.
Any suggestions?
BTW, I am using a cardigan on this too. =)
