Gone in a Flash

As many of you know, today I finally get to leave for spring break and I am so EXCITED!!! Let's just say next week, I will probably be planning on posting about swimwear because the beach is most likely going to be the only thing on my mind instead of preparing for finals.
Today I wanted to talk about my newest obsession and my must for spring break... Flash Tattoos.
Now, these can be purchased online at Flash Tats or they can be found in stores such as Altar'd State. They are a little pricey but they stay on longer than your average temporary tattoo. Usually, flash tats last about 4-6 days depending how well you take care of them. My favorite part about these though, is that they are so unique and can be placed anywhere on your body. I have seen girls wear them above their eyebrows, place them along their backs, and even covering their whole arm in them making it look like they are wearing a sleeve of tattoos.
A lot of these cool designs are supposed to be worn like temporary jewelry but some people are very creative with their uses. Surfers, will typically not even wear them on their skin but put them on their surfboards.
Okay with that being said, have a lovely spring break and be safe!!!

(Enjoy the jam! I know I will be on this 20 hour car drive to Panama City Beach)

Pitcher Perfect

Sweater: American Eagle Outfitters, Watch: Nike, Hat: Jock's Nitch
     Spring is in the air! Which also means that the best time of the year is just starting.... baseball season. With that being said, recently when I was home I did some DIY-ing. The first thing I made was a blinged ball cap. I picked up these diamonds from Michael's Crafts and used Aleene's metal glue to stick them down with. 
       The next thing I made while I was at home was this simple t-shirt dress. I the t-shirt I'm pretty sure I got for free with my admission into school and the fabric I found at Hobby Lobby. I'm thinking about making a step by step post on how to create one of these dresses, so please comment if that's something you are interested in. But anyways, it was super easy to make and took me no time! Then I finished off the look with adding a black satin ribbon around my waist and tacking it to the back center of the dress so the ribbon wouldn't slip.
        I cannot wait to wear this look to the next baseball game.

Until next time---

Oh La La

Dress: Made by me, Hairpiece: Vintage flowers, my mother made the piece for me

    Okay, I have big news today! I was asked to put some of my pieces in a local fashion show *grinning from cheek to cheek* so with that being said, I'm going to talk about my favorite dress I have ever made. The fabric I bought in Paris, at a small boutique. It is actually home d├ęcor fabric, so it is super thick and heavy but it holds the shape of the dress very well. It was such a pain to sew with however. The fabric was so fragile, that the threads kept unraveling on me, but I pushed through it (lol-ing).
    I love this dress because of the back cut out. It's very simple in the front and the back of the dress just makes it. The style of the dress reminds me of Roberto Cavalli's dress style, very timeless and classic looking. 
    My grandma was even so kind to give me old buttons from one of her coats that she wore back in the day. They matched the dress perfectly. My mother made the hairpiece for me using vintage flowers from one of her friends antique store. It took the dress to a whole new level by adding such a delicate accessory to it.
Until next time---
