Im To Proud For Love...

DIY Floral Crown  Dress: $7 Forever 21  Knee Highs: 99 Cents store  Leather Boots: $4 Swap Meet

Floral and Lace just scream spring. I love the way this look came together. The floral crown I made myself. It was kind of spur of the moment I had been wanting to make one for the longest and on my last trip to my swap meet I purchased all of the flowers for only $1.50. I will be posting up a DIY tutorial on how to make your very own. They're super simple and only take a couple of minutes. Also they are so worth it they literally make any outfit. I will definitely be making more and possibly hold a giveaway for one of them. So be sure to subscribe and stick around.

DIY Maxi Skirt To Circle Skirt Tutorial

Step 1: Find your self an awesome skirt, mine was only a dollar at my local swap meet. I've actually had it lying in my closet for the longest. I fell in love with the fabric and print when i spotted it, and for only a dollar? Come on! it was meant to be <3 also if you can find yourself one with an a-line shape. That would of course be best any other shape will be impossible to achieve the circle shape with UNLESS you slit the sides and add fabric. hmmmm maybe that will be my next tutorial.

Supplies: Pins, Needle, Thread, Measuring Tape, Marker, & Scissors.

Step 2: Measure the length from your waist until about mid-thigh.  I feel its best to take your measurement from your backside otherwise you could wind up with a skirt that flashes your bum. And we wouldn't want that now would we.
My length was 14". and i'm 5'1".

Step 3: Place measuring tape down the center of the skirt (you can see what i mean in the photo above step 2) and mark your length on both sides.

Step 4: Continue To move tape across the waist and mark the hem as you go along. Make sure your tape is straight other wise your marks will be crooked.

It Should Look Something Like This.

Step 5: Cut about 1 inch to about and 1 inch and a half below your markings this will be the extra fabric you will fold up and hem. (I like to have extra fabric just incase believe me i've cut things too short one to many times)

It Should Now Look Like This.

Step 6: Pin. Fold the skirt along the markings you made and pin in place.

Step 7: Stitch. Some of you may have sewing machines you can use, but i have to do mine the old fashion way.

And Voila!!! There you have it your very own circle skirt.
I hope you guys enjoyed my tutorial.
It is my first ever so please comment and tell me what you think.

Also about half ways threw making my tutorial my bf's uncle heard gun shots in our back yard he ran out and saw that some people had killed these baby duck's mother :/ However he was able to rescue 15 of them there was about 17 total but animals had ran off with the other two. They were so scared and they just kept crying out for their mother. This made me realize that we need to be a bit more grateful. A life can be taken away so quickly. But A poor defenseless animals even quicker.

Light As A Feather Stiff As A Board

Fashionable Mommy

So here it is once again my inner 90's child coming out. I can't help it my mom was a teenager at the time , and a fashionable one in every sense. So i guess you can say she had a big influence on me. However that does not mean we agree when it comes to everything. I have my own take on everything she just put down the foundation on which i built my tastes upon. But i must admit its a pretty fashionable one. now as for my look i kept the accessories very simple and versatile, you can simply change up the dress to any little one your heart desires and the accessories will compliment it perfectly. I kept the denim and leathers in very neutral tones for this particular reason. denim especially in the summer season coming up suits all prints perfectly and the leathers are very versatile colors.

Blue Jean Baby

Made this hairpiece myself from fresh flowers.

Baby Bleu

my little guy looking on.

This Dress Is Just So "WOW"

HairPiece: Free Made Myself  Dress:$7 Forever 21 Clearance  Pumps:$1.50 Salvation Army
Denim Vest:$3 thrifted and altered  Bag:$7 Wal-Mart  Chain HandPiece: Necklace worn as handpiece.

Channeling my inner hippie goddess in this look. I was also inspired by lana del rey's floral headwear. This dress i actually purchased almost 2 years ago at forever 2,1 and i absolutely fell in love when i spotted it on their clearance racks. The beading is just so detailed and the color is absolutely to die for. It has a flapper style. But i played that down and brought out its inner bohemian princess by pairing it with a chain handpiece, bleached denim vest, and my floral headpiece.  This outfits is definitely one of my favorites and im sure i will wear it as often as i can. Im thinking dates to the beach or a girls day out in Hollywood or on melrose vintage shopping. wherever i go i'm sure this outfit will turn plenty a heads.
well thats all for now.
