Quick DIY--Sunglasses Redo

Have you ever found yourself buying a pair of sunglasses and realize that you're not really diggin' it any longer? Perfect solution is to give it a new look. This may be the most obvious DIY in the world but I thought I'd post it anyway. It's all as simple as giving it a new paint job.

Give it a look see...

a before...and a after...
(I completely forgot to take a picture before I painted my sunglasses, so I used an old photo...hence the difference in the length of my hair... haha oops!)

Happy Friday all!

China Glaze in Periwinkle

I LOVE this nail polish so much! But the weird thing is that I have to be in the mood for it and I don't think it always looks good with my skin. Has that ever happened to you?

Open Shop

After long consideration, I have finally set up shop on Etsy where I will be selling some of my DIY handmade jewelry. I don't have much yet because I want to see how much feedback I get. Come and check it out HERE.

Girls Night out

I didn't think I was going to go out on Friday Night nor watch the final Harry Potter movie Opening Day knowing how packed it would be and Carmageddon well on it's way. As it would have it, I ended up painting the town red with my girls. We stayed in line for two hours but it was fun! Time flew by. Here is a pretty bad outfit picture since I didn't get a chance take a better one. (NOTE 2 SELF: Clean bathroom mirror.) I am pretty self conscious having my picture taken so I usually need the boyfriend to do it or have it done when no one is looking. lol. How did you all spend your weekend? Apparently, it was the perfect time to go out since the news scared off people to stay home.

Oh and yesterday I made some made some fun and quick friendship bracelets that the brilliant ladies of HONESTLY...WTF shared. Click HERE for directions.

Have you joined the arm party yet?!

Death by Shoe

by Isabel Marant

Ms. Marant is killing me with all the gorgeous footwear that's been circulating in the fashion world right now! I'd be the happiest gal in the world right now if I could have one of each in my closet right now. lol. A girl can dream right? Happy weekend folks.

Knit Together

Forever 21 Knit top, denim levi shorts, Ebay ankle boots

How gorgeous is this knit top I found at Forever? Even though it's a knit, it breathes and is loose enough that I could wear it during the summer.

I've just gotta say...

I just wanted to drop a quick note and send out a BIG THANK YOU for those of you who have visited or have been following my blog!!! For a while now I had been thinking that what I've been doing is pretty useless and should just give it a rest. I know I may not be posting the most novel nor exciting of things but it is because of your feedback I have a voice and am truly enjoying this creative outlet. So, again, THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!

DIY: Scalloped Shorts

I can never seem to be updated on H&M's collections in enough time to be able to purchase certain articles of clothing that I like. BAH! Take for example their...white crocheted, scalloped shorts.

With that said, you have no idea how elated I was when HONESTLY...WTF posted the most brilliant and quick DIY on how to make what reminded me of H&M's shorts. Here is my version...

Instead of using a lace time, I used an off white crocheted trim. Click HERE for their tutorial.

DIY: Wooden Sunburst Ring

I feel like my jewelry DIYs have become a little too many which may be getting boring so I won't bore you with my tutorial. I just wanted to show you all what I've made recently. I really love the House of Harlow Sunburst design so I thought I'd make a ring this time around out of some wood I've found. This is perfect because I could just hang it on a string and wear it as a necklace. What do you think?

I've been thinking about starting my own online shop...Would you buy some of the things I made?

Melrose Trading Post

thrifted top and skirt, Free People hat, Forever21 sandals, DIY necklace

Spent my Sunday afternoon at the Flea Market. I didn't get a chance to snap some pics of the place because I was on a mission to see as much of everything that I could. I still feel like I missed somethings. If you've never been, I definitely recommend it. There are so many treasures!

I ended up leaving with two bracelets (the one bottom two on my arm) and a some high-waisted shorts (my summer staple).

The next flea market on my list is the one held at the Rose Bowl. I've heard so many great things about it!

How was your weekend?

Leisure Time

Wearing some of my favorite things in one outfit. Happy Saturday folks!

Mellow Yellow

Goodwill bag & skirt, Forever21 booties, Ecote belt

You may have seen me wear this as a skirt a few posts ago (HERE). I had originally purchased this with the very intention that I could wear it a number of ways. The gauzy material is perfect for the humid weather worn either way.

Have any of you tried turning you skirts into dresses?

Playing with Rocks

(ha...TRYING to get picture ready...)

It's getting impossibly hot now which means shorts has become a complete necessity! :/ It is frustrating to me because I think my legs are really weird looking. With that said, this is me trying to create some sort of balance for myself by wearing a light sweater top that I just got at Forever21. (Mind you, this was taken last week when the weather was bearable still.) Isn't the beige and black just pretty?!

(Me trying to do some sort of posing...)


Forever 21 top, DIY shorts, Sideca Mary-Janes, DIY necklace

The shoes I'm wearing isn't really new but more of a rediscovery. Don't you love it when you forget you had something but when you uncover it it feels like new?

Happy Hump Day folks!

my fourth

Spent my Fourth of July weekend hiding from the sun, resting, and watching movies. I'd say it was capped off real nice by eating tons of sweets and catching some fireworks! I didn't get a chance to snap some outfit pictures. Though I did come home with a hefty amount of firework pictures! So apologies for the poor quality of photos.

How did you all spend your Independence Day?!

Long Weekends

Long Weekends, especially July 4th weekends make me crave awesome get-togethers, ice tea, and barbecue. I hope you are all enjoying your weekends.

What are you plans?
