RESET + a little DIY

Hey lovelies! Remember me?! It feels like I've been hiding under a rock for ages hasn't it? For those of you who have been following me, you may know that I have been feeling all sorts of uncreative. I went through a combination of "It's been done before," "why would any care about what you have to say," and "why would you post that." I won't bore you all with the details but as you can see it's really all very "Tales of a Drama Queen."
While writing my New Year's Resolution list I decided it's high time to start blogging again without inhibition. I had started this blog with the sole objective to create a place for myself where I can place my creative tensions, inspirations, and ideas. New Years entails a sense of renewal and reorganization so I thought it be appropriate to share a quicky organizational DIY. It's not only a great way to recycle but to display your arm swag. I think it makes me look like a fabulous fashion hoarder, no?
Materials: Empty bottles (any color of various sizes), or jars
Directions: Fill to your hearts content!!
Sorry for the lengthy post but I felt the need for such a post prior to a regular scheduled program. Happy New Year's folks! I've missed you!

DIY Revamp: Two-Tone Oxford Shoes

I thought I'd give an old pair of black oxfords a new lease on life by putting a little paint on them!
What you'll Need: Pair of oxfords, flat-head paint brush, gloss enamel paint (any color) painter's tape (optional)
Pick the areas you want to paint (use your painter's tape to create clean lines).
Paint away!
(TIP: I chose a glossy enamel white paint so that when it dries it will match the texture of the shoe and so that it ends up being waterproof.)
Voila! Now you are ready to "t-t-t-tip on the tightrope"!

The Underwear Debate

I was in the mood to give some light layering a try yesterday which resulted in you know...wearing some underwear on top of my clothes--naturally.
Do you think this is a trend that should be circulated? Wearing undergarments on top of your clothes like some of our forefathers? As you can tell, I'm in 100 percent support of this movement. Subconsciously I believe it will give me super powers at the very least! Tell me, I'm dying to know! Photo courtesy (1st Image): Google Images

Nothing is as it seems.

French Connection top, F21 pants, DIY flats (previous post)
Funny story about this top... My sister and I were out thrifting at Crossroads when I came across this bad boy attracted mostly to the material and the strokes of grey against the yellow. I decided to wear this top to work when my boss told me, "I just realized your shirt has bears on it." Then I said "Oh, wear?...(I look down and discover one looking right at me.) Oh my gosh, look there is it... All over my shirt." So much for attention to detail huh? Truth: Did you see the bears right away? Happy Friday peeps!
