DIY – Upcycle Earrings into Hair Pins

diy hair pins 1

Look at these Monsters! I wore these earrings to my sister’s wedding (2yrs ago) and haven’t worn them since. Besides the fact that they are missing rhinestones after only one wear (which is not surprising since they only cost me $5 at Forever21 #cheap), they are super heavy and hurt my ears. I think it’s safe to say I’m never wearing these bad boys again.  But, instead of tossing them, I upcycled them into cute little hair pins for my goddaughter!

Here’s how:

DIY – NEON JEWELRY

Happy Friday!

I’ve taken on the task of organizing my jewelry box… Sadly, I have so many pieces that I can’t wear anymore because they are tarnished, tangled, missing stones /jewels etc. But, instead of throwing them away, I’m finding ways to upcycle them into fantastic new pieces! Here’s the quickest and easiest way to revamp your  tarnished jewels into BRIGHT “like-new” accessories:

I love this DIY because it’s quick, easy, and just like polishing your nails, you can use nail polish remover and change-up the colors whenever you want! I’ll be sharing more ways I’m upcycling/revamping my old jewelry so be sure to check back (and follow) for more DIY ideas! Have a fun & safe weekend!

Overalls: YAY or NAY?

Nobody believed me months ago when I said overalls were making a comeback.  Hate to say it, but… I TOLD YOU SO!

The more I look at them, the more I (kinda) want a pair…but the little voice in my head keeps repeating that line from the movie, Clueless — “she could be a farmer in those clothes.”

 What do you guys think about overalls… are they a yay, or nay?!

The Curvy Fashionista

A reader requested I do a post for “the big girls,” because “big girls need to know how to dress, too” (those were her words, not mine–I prefer the term curvy.) Truth be told, every “skinny girl” dreams of having curves.  I mean seriously, is there anything sexier than curves?! Apparently, per my mom, mine won’t come until after I have children …which is currently the only reason why I would consider having children…

Celebrity Style…for LESS!

Happy Friday!

Lately, I’ve been spending a lot of time making fashion collages (via Polyvore). I love creating what I call “celebrity style” collages, where I try to put together similar looks of some of  my favorite celebs. Oh! and for a lot less money than what they’ve probably spent on the outfit. Just because you’re on a budget, doesn’t mean you can’t look/dress like the “big spenders”. So, if you plan on going shopping this weekend, here’s a few looks to try!

Celebrity Style- Jessica Alba
Celebrity Style: Miranda Kerr
Celebrity Style: Alexa Chung
I’d love to know who your fashion icons are? Let me know in the comment section below, and perhaps I can feature them on my next Celebrity Style collage! For more fashion and interior design inspo you can follow me on Polyvore (here). Have a great weekend!

Oops I’m Pregnant: Maternity Style

Hi Everyone!
A wonderful friend, who is soon to be a mother of two (boys…ahh!), requested a Maternity Style post. To be honest, I feel somewhat unqualified posting about maternity wear, being that I’ve never been a preggo. But, I’ve had enough friends and family who have been to know that it’s virtually impossible to shop for yourself when your pregnant. Apparently, there is some type of magnetic force that pulls you into the baby section of every department store and causes you to buy out the whole section.Which means you’ll be rockin’ the hubby’s sweats for yet another trimester. So, since a mom-to-be shopping spree seems to be unrealistic, I decided to focus on 9 pieces to invest in that will allow you to make endless pairings!
