I was inspired by this editorial to create a tutorial on this look. It’s creepy yet hauntingly beautiful at the same time.
Day Of The Dead or “Dia de los muertos” Is a very popular Fiesta in Mexico and I absolutely love the fashion & costume for it. You can wear this flower headpiece out for Halloween but also for “Dia de los muertos” (which is also coming up).
Materials Needed- Black Lace Fabric, Faux flowers, Wire, & Scissors (all materials bought from Michaels arts & Crafts store), Black maxi dress- MinkPink
For all you last minute people that are still clueless on what to wear for tonights festivities (you know who you are!) ..this is a great look you can create in less than 20-30 mins!
HAPPY HALLOWEEN !
Hope yall are are up for a funny story this morning! So the other day I was prepping for a campaign shoot for a client. I came across these bad ass hand-dyed lavendar shorts and instantly knew I had to buy the last pair that was available. Just my luck..happens that the last pair available was 2 sizes too small for me but bought em anyways… what the heck its only 2 sizes right? WRONG!
After a near death experience of trying to get these shorts over my hips.. all of a sudden I see (in slow motion) the jeans ripping from bottom up. And what is that? A Leopard underlay? ummm no …say hello to my leopard cotton panties. I completely & accidently ripped these jeans in the worst way possible. Instantly I knew this would make a great DIY project (inspired by Balmain).
Sometimes you can turn Trash into treasures. Once a pair of trashy, underwear exposing, short shorts…NOW they are a pair of safety pin-embellished, rip-effect, distressed cutoffs! Do you have any jeans, shorts, or shirts that are already ripped up or possibly needs a little pick-me-up? Try doing what I did and turn your Trash into Treasures!
Pairing a little boho lace with strong edgy leather is the perfect balance of in between rocker-boho-chic. I found these leather shorts on sale at Topshop when I was out in NY for fashion week. Also found this lace top from topshop as well….the sheer bell bottom laced arms had me at hello.
I was in downtown LA fashion district the other day buying fabric for a new DIY project im working on and spotted these gorgeous peacock feathers. Had no idea why I was buying them at the time but was determined to put them to use someway somehow. I went home to scout some janky jewelry that I could revamp and found these cheap earrings I had stored up in my “junk” bin and stuck these feathers and VOILA!
Turning Junk Into Jems…..thats my profession.
Although this Burberry trench is a MUST HAVE…Some of us dont have the luxury in spending $2995 for an ahhhhhhhhh-mazing spiked Burberry trenchcoat. So why not DIY? I mean c’mon Fake It Til You Make It. (Via WhoWhatWear)
