Captivating Women

Lazy night in and stumbled onto these images. Too compelling not to share.

Austin Adventures!

I just got back from Austin and had an amazing time! I went sky diving for the first time and had the best tacos. Delicious food, great friends, and new adventures – what else could I want?

Here are some fun photos from the trip! I just loved the hand tooling and embroidery on the cowboy boot at Allen Boots.

I can’t wait to go back and eat more Tex Mex…oh and see some friends.

Wardrobe Update: Upcycled Skirt

Hey guys!

I’ve been meaning to work on this project / post for awhile. I have so many items of clothing that I want to alter and it’s just been piling up in my apartment. Well, one down, several more to go! Keep reading to see my first of many fixer-uppers!

I adore this Free People dress, but after several washes, the fabric was wearing thin and it ripped on the front seam 😦

No worries though, because after chopping off the top and adding an elastic waistband, I’ve got a new skirt to wear!

Stay tuned, I have lots of upcylcing to do!

Until next time! xoxo

DIY T-shirts

This weekend, my friends and I flew to Akron, OH to surprise Justin for his birthday. We all took the same flight leaving NY, but Dave convinced the airline to let us board first. When we landed in Ankron, we ran up to Justin and yelled, “SURPRISE!” He was pretty confused.

Anyway, for the big reveal, we decided to make iron on custom tees. Here are a couple photos – they are so easy to make. For Natalie, I just cut the bottom into strips. Since I made Lauren’s somewhat of a crop top, I used the excess fabric to make braids and cut out the regular crew neck and sleeves to create a braided neck. I think they turned out pretty well!

I definitely can’t take credit for this cake, but look how amazing it is!!! The closest I came to this was making a pinata cake. 

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer so far! Stay cool.

Spring Scarves!

So working on a Saturday is kinda a buzz kill, especially on a nice day like today…but instead of feeling down, I got crafty and made some colorful scarves, perfect for Spring!

These literally take minutes to make and cost next to nothing…well, if you happen to have a purl merrow machine and fabulous fabric scraps from work!

 Can’t wait to go to Mood and pick up some inspiring prints! If I’m ambitious, I might even set up a stand Brooklyn Flea! Last weekend, the flea was outside in Ft. Greene for the 1st time this year…I love flea season, which thankfully, is all year round! 🙂

I have so many more projects up my sleeves! Stay tuned!

Until next time,

xoxo

besos

all my love

Happy Easter!

Wow…it has been a loooooong time since my last post.

No time like the present to rectify that. Spring is here and so is Easter!

Hope you like my non coventional Easter bouquet! I love the earthy look and they last so much longer than flowers!

HAPPY EASTER Y’ALL!

Glasses Galore

So I’ve had my vintage Geoffrey Beene glasses from Fabulous Fanny’s (see below) for quite some time now, and have been itching for a new pair.

Lo and behold, I stumbled onto MYM Optics today and started bidding away.

I ended up snagging 3 new pairs of glasses without breaking the bank.

               

I can’t wait to get lenses in these suckers!

Whoa…I just realized how patriotic my choices were…and I’m not even American!
