It’s hard for me to digest the fact that we will be ringing in the New Year withing the next 24 hours! I wish I was able to load this video up earlier so yall had more time to find your fancy NYE dress, but i’ve been experiencing MAJOR technical difficulties here in Taiwan. I hope that you will find some inspiration thru this video to bring in the new years with style! I’m a fond believer in “How you start something is how you finish it!” and vice versa. So lets end the year glamorously and ring in the new year with lots of style! Hope you enjoy this STYLE COUNTDOWN video I made for you!

Dia De Los Muertos

posted by on 2011.10.29, under Fashion DIY, Fashion Tutorials

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!

And like I promised…here’s one of my childhood School photos! Love how my mom styled me in a peter pan collar printed blouse layered with a white eyelet dress. Seems like mama wanted my face to be framed with those buttoned up collars. Looked like I learned a thing or 2 from my mom!

So…To Smile Or Not To Smille??? Obviously I was too timid to smile back then! and YES I was quite the shy one growing up! :P

Wanted to scan more images for you guys but all my school photos are at my parents house in the bay area. So maybe next time I will show you some more!

Hope you guys learned a thing or 2 from this tutorial and you got a good laugh from my timid little school photo!
