What I Wore to the 2011 Teen Choice Awards

I was so excited to be on the blue carpet for the TCAs today. I had a hard time picking what to wear when I found out it was going to be a very hot, very sunny day. I decided to dress up a little and was inspired by the new Free People collection for fall. I fell in LOVE with their jeweled Turband. I decided to try to craft my own and I think it turned out pretty amazing. I used two pieces of fabric and braided them and sewed them together. Next I glued a bunch of old jewelry to the front. I ended up finding this second hand dress at wasteland for $24.00. I got a ton of people coming over to me on the blue carpet asking about my dress and turband! I also decided to take a make-up risk by wearing bright orange lipstick (thanks lady at the NARS counter for the suggestion, I loved the way it looked!)

I saw a ton of amazing dresses on the carpet. Stand outs for me were Lucy Hale from Pretty Little Liars and Katerina Graham from Vampire Diaries. Katerina came RIGHT over to me and wanted to buy the turband off my head!

Did you guys like my dress?
