DaisyCombridgeDaisyCombridge Declare your love for cool tools and be a cut above the rest! Girls on-the-go with modern, multifaceted style need to be prepared for anything that comes their way. Enter life’s must-have accessory; the Swiss Army knife. For centuries, these legendary tools have battled rogue threads on our cocktail dresses, smoothed chips in perfectly manicured nails and so much more. Our pocketknife pal stays put in our purse and is as essential as lipgloss! Aside from the obvious “fix-it” functions, we’re big fans of using this handheld toolbox to DIY. Read on to learn how you can create a coveted “kiltie” embellishment for heels in need of an overhaul. To create, trace and cut a template (almost like a stretched trapezoid) on paper. P.S.- The size will depend on your shoe size. Be sure to measure the template to the shoe before cutting and also leave a few extra inches toward the upper portion to tuck into the shoe. Use your Swiss Army knife (on a cutting board with a flat surface) and cut two pieces of fabric. Any type of suede or leather-like material works. Use mini snips to cut two-inch slits. Continue to use snips to create an inverted “V” fringe. Pierce two tiny slits with your knife half-way down. Feed cord through the holes, leaving space for your ankle to fit in. Lastly, add a bead detail to the ends and tie a cute bow. Get creative with your colors of materials, cords, and shoes- mix and match your heart away…Your Swiss Army pocket knife pal is super sharp… your DIY style should be too!
lizliz From the original post: " Whenever I go clothes shopping and I find myself not too happy with my reflection or discover the clothes I really like don’t fit, I get my camera out and take a few photos of myself in the mirror instead of letting any negative thoughts creep in. I took this one yesterday after discovering a dress I fell in love with the moment I saw it didn’t fit me properly around the bust. I did a few silly poses, a few sexy poses and a few happy ones where I smiled as widely as I could and focused on all the things about me and about my body that I like. I came out of the fitting room feeling really positive about myself and how I look instead of brooding over the fact that the dress was too small for me. I really recommend doing this when going clothes shopping - it it’s a great way to chase away any negative thoughts or disappointment if clothes don’t fit!"
chenbegchenbeg Fashion, art, and creativity make the world go ‘round. When all are combined, endless and innovative magic happens. The never-ending cycle of a circle is something that is sought after. This season, set your sights not only on infinite possibilities, but also scarves! The circle scarf has become a staple in everyones’ wardrobe. Infuse the essential chunky knit to stay cozy and au currant. Continuous knit circle scarves can be worn long and loose or wrapped up right. Either way you style it, circle gets the square! To create your own DIY circle scarf, simply cut off the bottom half of your sweater, hem the raw edge with Gorilla Tape by sticking halfway down, and folding over to seal. After completely “hemmed”, roll underneath several times to hide the tape and create a soft edge.
NessaNessa Hey all,My name is Jenn… I’m the creator of the “Big Is Beauty Project” on Youtube.I took this picture about a year ago, right after I had surgery.I took it to prove a point. If someone of say, a size 2 were to have taken this picture - it would be beautiful and artistic. If someone of my size takes a picture like this, nothing but negative comments are written about it. Is this right? No. It’s not. Who are you to tell me I can’t be beautiful and artistic? Don’t be afraid of what others have to say. If you like your body and want to share it with the world - GO RIGHT AHEAD!!!!Get to know someone before you judge them. You have no right making other people feel like crap just because you don’t like the way they look.I struggled with body image my entire life, and just recently over the past few years have come to terms with the size of my body. It is possible to love your body, yet hate it at the same time. But, when the hate starts overpowering the love - you need to make a change. You can either try and change how you look, and transform your body into something that you’ll adore… Or, you can learn to accept and love the body that life has given you. You’ll never be perfect. Nobody is perfect. Nobody can say that they love absolutely everything about themselves. Learn to take something negative, and change it into something positive.t’s okay to be fat. Just as it’s okay to be skinny, white, black, gay, bisexual, straight, whatever. You’re you, and you are beautiful no matter what.Everybody is different, every body is different.[Exerpts from my blog; http://missbigbeauty.tumblr.com]BE BRAVE! JOIN THE REVOLUTION!
DaisyCombridgeDaisyCombridge P is for Personality, which is precisely what printed jeans ooze of. Glide your way into this mainstream must-have with this denim DO! Get inspired by Balmain’s coveted graphic jean with a snakeskin twist. Bulgari’s Serpenti Collection of chic bracelets, bags, wallets and watches has slithered into our hearts, helping our style shine bright. Infuse a luxe snakeskin-esque pattern with a pop of print… it’s just what the DIY doctor ordered. To create: use a solid colored pair of jeans for the base. Use scissors to cut zig zag shapes out of kitchen sponges and textured sponge cloths into 2” inch strips. Apply an even coat of fabric paint onto the sponge surface and press directly onto the denim starting from the outside edge. Hold sponge for a few seconds allowing paint to absorb into the material. Continue to create vertical patterns down the legs. For a more textured effect, overlap sponges as you go. Let one side dry completely before turning over to repeat the process on the back.
