Homecoming Shoping

So homecoming is in about a month, but it's never too early to look for a dress. I've been searching around, and I think I'm stuck between just two dresses. Help me out by leaving a comment with the dress you think I should wear. Thanks!!!

Rainy Days

Just an outfit I wore to school a couple days ago. You may wonder how I can wear jeans and a cardigan when it isn't even fall yet, but I have to because of how freezing my school is, and all the crazy rain we've been getting recently.

DIY- Lace Bracelet

So I am actually making this bracelet for my fashion marketing class at school, but I decided to show you how to make it! It is really easy, and only requires a few materials so get started!

Lace Trim
Pearl Buttons
Thin Ribbon
Hot Glue Gun
Needle and Thread

Step 1: Cut elastic to the size of your wrist and sew it to make a bracelet.

Step 2: Hand sew lace trim, starting at the seam of the bracelet.

 Step 3: Going all the way around the bracelet, use a few stitches to tack down the lace.

 Step 4: Sew a few pearl buttons onto the bracelet.

 Step 5: Make a small bow using the thin ribbon, then hot glue or sew it onto the bracelet.

 Step 6: Add some purple ribbon detailing to the back of the bracelet.

Voila! You've got yourself a bracelet!!!

Back from the Beach

I'm on my way back now from a wonderful labor day weekend beach trip with family and my best friend. I love taking this vacation literally right as summer ends. I actually have school tomorrow, which I'm not super excited about, but it had to come sometime! Also, while at the beach, my friend and I got henna tattoos, wohoo!

The Hat- Part 1

I was searching through my mom's closet the other day, and found a bunch of hats! I'm generally not a hat person, but I love this one! So I decided to create 4 outfits around the hat. Here is the first one. :)
