Hello everyone! Apologies for the lack of posts this past week – my impending move has me working overtime! It’s a go to work, get home at 7pm, and pack routine before crashing a few hours later. The next two weeks are going to be crazy/fun/exhausting/cathartic as I get everything I want to hold onto boxed up and the rest of the things off to Goodwill.
My new place has bookshelves in the walls, so I’m excited to have a place for all of my books! I did put a stash together to donate, though. Do I really need two copies of the first Harry Potter book? (It was a toss up, but…no.)
I found this new style of bracelet the best for holding onto tape without losing it or forgetting where I put it.
I’m certain that a roll got put into a box
Like my new chair??
I’m taking my break moments where I can get them! More to come and you’ll be seeing a bunch of your own creations getting posted while I’m working away.
Anyone have any great packing tips?? I’ll take whatever I can get!! xo
I love it when this happens.
Yeah, I’m talking about when that dress just won’t fit. In this case, I couldn’t get one of my arms into the sleeve nor button up the top portion of the dress.
This just wasn’t going to work…
Time to make this something wearable!
Hi everyone! I’ve been a bit offline the past week because I’m moving (yay!! still in LA, but to a space where I’ll have an actual studio to work in!!) and have been in crazy boxing up mode. Alas, I’m back and have some really fun remakes around the corner.
This is just one you get to look forward to…
And, here’s another…
Also, a winner will get announced later today from the pre-holiday goodie giveaway (someone is getting a chic, new Rafe purse!!) and I see a bunch more giveaways coming up while I take down the arduous task of boxing up my apartment!
Happy almost 2015, friends!! This is one of my favorite times of the year. Not only is it my mom’s birthday (Happy Birthday Mom!!) but it’s the start of new things to come. There’s some fun stuff ahead in the pipelines and I can’t wait to fill you all in! But, let’s talk about the important stuff – what are you wearing tonight??
This is such an easy project to make and one that’s perfect to complete when you’re dyeing other pieces. I found this vintage beaded purse at Goodwill that had lots of darkish spots on the pink satin as well as a handle that was dark, dirty, and just not something that you’d want to hold onto.
I thought a little dye dip would do the trick, so I added this purse into the dye bath I created for this lovely dress (click here for the full post)…
…and ended up with the perfect NYE accessory!
I wasn’t into the strap, so I snipped it to create a clutch.
I can’t wait to wear this with my sequins tonight!!
I love that the sequins are pronounced now! What a fun way to give this tossaway a new life. Love that Rit Dye!
Where are you counting down tonight?
This lacy dress was always calling out for a little color.
When I bought it for a buck a few months back, I knew that it had serious potential. The entire top portion of the dress was lace, however it was a bit tricky to really see it all!
I just loved the back of this dress – it was a little too chilly to wear it without a tank, but you can see how deep it goes…
…and was ready to get to a little color changing.
For the holidays, I went with…
