road to the west

Old Navy jacket, Random tee (similar), DIY pleated skirt (similar), Steve Madden boots (similar)

Editing these photos to the Cowboy Bebop soundtrack makes everything about 1000% more dramatic. In all the best ways. Anyone else have a favorite soundtrack to work to? Anyways, a couple different things are going on in these photos. Yes, the hair is much darker and I feel more at home with it. You are also looking at the project I finished before creating the marble bralette, which is this simple pleated skirt. Pleated skirts are super fun to make once you get the math down. I suppose I will end this post with a cheers to the weekend. Cheers!

diy marbled bralette

When I read Honestly WTF's latest paper DIY, I truly thought WTF. Can this technique be applied to clothing?? So I set out on my latest DIY and thought it would be perfect for a bralette! The shaving cream marbling method has been around for awhile, and it also appears to be the easiest.

Tutorial below the break!

frame denim rtw

NYFW may barely be underway but I can already tell you that the Frame Denim presentation will be a favorite of mine this round. Inspired by the 70's, paired with the perfect color palette for fall. I need that navy number with the boots! Also for you ladies who like a more minimal makeup and hair look, the Frame Denim team embraced that for you. But do remember, it does take some effort to recreate this look as well. Don't let the models fool you into thinking they woke up like this!

Go simple with a blow dry, not too flat but nothing too big with the round brush. Use a tinted moisturizer for the face and one shade darker than your skin tone for eye shadow. If you want to try some contouring, also use only one shade darker than your skin. Then just do some simple mascara, a slightly bolder brow and some lip balm.
