We’re Running Just as Fast as We Can

Fun summer look I wore to a sushi lunch. I’m loving the splatter effect with the perfectly on trend neon colors. I kept the theme going with a hot pink bag, pink lips, and neon green nails. Yea, NEON.

Classy Rock

I bought this coveted dress from Zara for Easter, but have had difficulty trying to make it more my style for day wear. Then, it hit me. Throw on my Forever 21 black and metal zipper belt with some DB sandals, and my favorite bracelet! I wore this to work and I must say, I felt more in love with this dress than I have at all since April!

And that is how I turned a more conventional, classic dress into more of a rocker look!

DIY Slouchy Clutch

I’ve been feeling creative lately and been dying to create something using this greyscale “fuck” fabric my roommate had lying around. With the laptop clutch craze going around, I decided that’s what I needed.

Next, was the hunt for the perfect sized, shade, and priced zipper. I ended up at B&Q Trimmings on 38th street, which was sooo much cheaper in everything than M&J and also much more helpful! Safe to say I’ll be going back for all my trimmings and non-fabric needs.

Now, for the pictures: I started by cutting the fabric, sewing the bottom and parts of the sides, then sewing the zipper on.

Maven got in the way a little. It came out alright; I forgot I hadn’t sewn anything since I was 18 but it was great to get back on a machine. Then, I modeled it in what I wore for the day!

As you can see I have some BRIGHT new hair, done by my good friend and soon to be recent beauty school graduate, Sarah. She’s amazing and had done my hair before when I had the red with blonde ! 😀

Enjoy, and hopefully there will be more DIY’s to come.
