Handmade Home Wedding

May 13, 2014

It’s that time of year… I can hear the church bells ringing and see the flower petals floating down the isle before the bride. However, weddings are expensive, and the costs can become overwhelming. If you are planning a wedding, be thankful that handmade, vintage and rustic are all in style.

As I perused one of my favorite wedding photographers, Morgan Trinker, I came upon the perfect combination of simplicity and charm. “Less is more” has never been more true.

DIY: High Waisted Shorts

April 21, 2014

Have you ever wondered how to make the summer’s hottest shorts? This how-to, step by step will give you your soon-to-be favorite pair of shorts!

Step 1: Find a pair of high waisted jeans. I used Gap in the demo, but Levi’s work the best. (Your local thrift store is filled with vintage Levi’s.)

Step 2: Cut them at an angle, low to high, from your inner thigh to your upper thigh. Make them have a slight V shape. For length: put them on before you cut them, and mark a little spot with a sharpie where you want to start cutting.

Step 3: When you have both sides cut, stick them in the wash on a basic wash cycle. After, dry them in the dryer for the perfect fringe look. Air dry works also.

Step 4: After they are completely dry, they should have fringed on their own in the wash, and you may have to cut/trim the fringe if it’s dragging down and way too long. And now, you should have your own High Waisted Shorts!

Wanting holes? Make a tiny straight line slit wherever you desire the hole to be. Stick in the wash, and it will fringe on its own!

Spring Trends 2014

February 21, 2014

1. Pastels

Pastels hit nearly every runway during fashion week. We fell in love with DKNY’s elegant yet sporty pastel looks! Even though we will opt out of the sneakers, we are definitely going to rock soft hues of lilac, mint and buttercup!

2. Colorful Prints

Two words. Mara Hoffman. Her use of brilliant color and tribal prints will bring life into any closet. Don’t be afraid of being bold. Mix in unique prints and colors into your wardrobe this spring!

3. Black & White Chic

Black for spring? You bet! Chanel sported their renown elegance of black and white. Mix a white over-sized blazer with a cropped black skinny pant for a sophisticated look.
