Hi friends!! I’ve been traveling this week so I’m a bit behind on posting, but I wanted to give you a teaser on what to look forward to over the next few days.
This mustard yellow dress is a total delight. The skirt is thick and quilty, the color is perfect for this time of year, but it needs a bit of help.
Hey collar, haaaaaaaaaay!! Plus lime green to boot!! Can’t wait to show you the after look of this guy.
Love this light blue muumuu. The neck ties make for a perfect hair accent!
I feel like Cinderella with our matching blue hair sashes
Three fun outfits with three even more fun after looks to come… Would any of these make it into your Goodwill basket??
Halloween is over, but here’s a rundown of what I actually wore on the big night! Can’t wait to hear what you dressed up like this year!
I worked with RIT Dye on this year’s costume, so I started with a white cotton dress as the base and then played around with dye to really give off a gumball machine feel!
Start a dye bath for your garment next. I used a washing machine, but a stove top works as well. Fill your machine with hot water (run it on a whites wash) or boil the water on your stove top. Add your chosen dye (I went with Cherry Red) to your dye bath…
…wet your garment completely in water, and then add your piece to the bath.
After the wash is complete (or after you’ve let the garment marinate on the stove top) toss it into the dryer to dry completely before adding your pompoms!
My month of DIY costumes shot in front of the actual shooting locations continues!! The final look is here and it comes from a movie that made me want to move to LA.
Today’s costume comes from:
I love this movie. I quote this movie rather often, so when I decided that I was going to do a month of DIY movie/TV show costumes and shoot them in front of their actual filming locations, Clueless was #1 on my list. I have needed to see Circus Liquor in real life!
Elton drops her off in the liquor store parking lot because she’s not into him like he is…
…and she’s not into the Cranberries like he is either!
To create her outfit, you can easily make the jacket using a red and black feather boa and a red blazer. I found mine at Goodwill for $3! I cut the boa to fit around the cuffs of the jacket as well as the collar and hot glued it in place.
Then, all you need is a red dress and you’re transformed into Cher Horowitz!!
My month of DIY costumes shot in front of the actual shooting locations continues!! Day 30 is here and it’s on my list as one of my favorite Coen Brothers movies.
Today’s costume comes from:
There is nothing cooler than Jeff Bridges as The Dude.
This opening scene is the best – he’s in a Ralphs grocery store, wearing his iconic robe, drinking some milk. Like you do…
I had to hit up a local Ralphs to recreate this fun scene.
The things you’ll need for the perfect dude costume are…
1. Robe (mine is from Overstock.com, but anything in the brown family works like a charm!)
2. Beard (this one is c/o Party City)
Let’s go to Ralphs!
