This sweater is another favorite color combo of mine (blush pink just goes so good with anything!) and I also have a slight obsession with anything Jenni Kayne. Her pieces are so fab and are all made so well.

I wore this fishtail combo a lonnng while back and finally made a tutorial on it! I was sort of just experimenting with braids one night at Fashion Week in 2012 and randomly came up but it really does give your fishtail an extra little something so if you want to learn a new little trick then watch! And if you recreate it, be sure to tag me in your insta (@amberfillerup) I love to see your pics! Anyways, hope you enjoy and be sure to switch to HD for better quality! :) (watch, here, or scroll down)

    I always LOVE your looks! I look forward to seeing them and check your blog daily however, I’m always saddened when the pieces you use are so far out of my budget :/

    $500 the top? Do you use your money for something else than clothes? like helping animal shelter rescue for example ?

    • amber March 24, 2014 at 11:42 pm Permalink

      Just because you only see material things on this blog that does not mean it is all I spend my money on. I will never publicly share which charities I chose to donate to because that defeats the purpose in my mind, service should be done silently. xx

    Why don’t you smile in any of these pics? :D

    • amber March 24, 2014 at 11:37 pm Permalink

      When you take pics daily and sometimes you don’t know the photographer and just don’t feel like forcing a smile :) doesn’t mean I am not happy!

    I also Love your looks, check your blog daily but I am also saddened by the high end pieces used that’s so far out of most people’s budget.

    • amber March 24, 2014 at 11:29 pm Permalink

      I am really sorry, I try to have a good mix of price points! This sweater I happened to get 30% during the sale and most of my more expensive things I wait til Shopbop has their flash sales or Nordstrom has theirs! But I will definitely keep that in mind for future posts and try to mix it up more!

  31. Miss Pippi March 22, 2014 at 1:29 pm Permalink

    Lovely sweater and ring! Your hair looks gorgeous!

    So I actually tried to recreate this look after you first posted the picture at FW 2012, and it kind of worked, but I’m so glad for the tutorial, now I know to add an extension to the small fishtail :). It’s a beautiful hairstyle, I’m excited to try it again!
