Note To Self: Put this link on the DIY bracelets to do list! I’d like to have a set of these. I’m adding some easy links to the needed supplies. Notice that this project is primed for recycling some of the supplies from things you already own (especially chain and fabric). I would like to explore this using fabrics that create an ombre set. And why not try making a choker? I’ve also added a link to purchase a set if you aren’t the DIY type.
Chain (more than needed to fit around your wrist OR recycle some jewelry you no longer wear)
Items needed but that you probably don’t need a link to: needle and thread; fabric, 1/16 of a yard (You don’t need a link for this, use something from your closet that you don’t wear anymore!); krazy-type glue (I always like to use gel formulas best because they don’t run and are therefore easier to control.)
No time to DIY? Buy a beautiful ready-made set at Green Sewn. Even if you’re going to DIY, link here to check out their color combinations as inspiration.
I love this braid tutorial from Lucky Mag! The warmer the weather gets, the more I’m ready to get my hair pulled back or up and my basic ponytail gets old. Try something different! I’m showing the more eclectic styles here but there is something in this tutorial for everyone with hair long enough to braid. Practice these a few times before you plan to take them out for a public appearance.
I had to stow this look in my style file! The white pants and the bright flowers are proof that you can wear your black blazer into Spring. I love a sheer shirt but always with a cami underneath. Don’t miss the lines of this outfit which are perfectly pulled off; the cinched-in waist of the blazer, the bottom of the blazer echoed by the pointed shoes. The barely-there print on the blouse adds that tiny bit of texture. While SJP does not always capture my precise style, she is almost always inspirational.

I’m loving all three of these looks featured on Lucky Mag: Francophile Style.
Left: sophisticated in a sweet way, matchy-matchy shoe/purse combo but to pull it off you need slightly messy hair. The hand strap on the clutch and the ankle straps on the heels are some of those little features that shout style.
Center: Love a striped shirt and I’m a freak for oxfords but the satchel is my fav.
Right: it’s all about thinking the entire look through…the cross body bag, the beret, the bracelet, EVERYTHING.
These are iconicly cool. But I’m betting they aren’t the most comfortable shoes. All shoes have a time limit. There are all day shoes, 3 hour heels, 1 hour heels, etc.. I’m betting that these glass slippers are good for about 15 minutes!
Everything about this look is working for me; the varying textures, the varying prints, the colors (somewhat monochromatic without being at all dull) and that olive bag that plays with a just the right touch of color.
I’m on a hunt for statement necklaces; taking note of what was worn during New York Fashion Week 2013 (September 2012).
#1 The green is a deep hue and this necklace has an organic feel to the design even though it includes rhinestones. (I assume they are rhinestones.) :) I’d wear this necklace. I’d wear the Celine jacket, too!
