More stuff I've been doing

I think of this as a messy post and since this was sort of a messy project, then I guess this works. I have been spray painting jewelry new colors and molding metal into cuffs and making sheer maxi skirts. For another creative project of mine, I decided to change the color of some of my clothes . I thought it was a nice way to switch things up a bit. I purchased fabric dye and went at it on this old BCBG shirt. The original color was bayleaf and did not suit me at all. This color would've been brighter but the base was very brown so I think that messed it up a little bit. Regardless, I am happy with this new shade much more. I did this all in my stainless steel sink so it wasn't as bad as I thought but still a sink full of teal was kind of messy!!

Peplums, a staple item and a DIY

I've been longing for a peplum skirt or dress! I think they're so chic! But of course I wouldn't want to be cornered into having only one dress or skirt that has a peplum. I'd have to wear it over and over to get that look or buy a bunch, and that's in no way logical. So I considered making my own peplum belt but purchased the one pictured from BCBG. I still may make one just probably neon yellow!!  I also have a very versatile tube dress from LIT that I paired it with. I wear it under and with everything. Below are some pics of me wearing the tube dress. I just threw a pussy bow blouse over it for a simple look. The shirt is a little sheer so the fact that I had a complete dress on helped. It really has become my new staple item. I also recently found a great peplum DIY so I'm sharing that as well! Just click on the pic. Happy Wednesday :)

I know everyone is posting about Fashion Week and I adore reading all the posts and am excited for friends attending, but this is just a simple inspiration post. I took a break from browsing online and have to be honest in saying I'm in a bit of a funk. Ways that I am inspired are through blogs of my peers, people watching/local street style and websites ie. ASOS, Nasty Gal, LuLu's, Zara, BCBG and you get the point. I browsed today on ASOS and found myself excited with the skirts they have. Makes me think of Spring and being able to float around the city in a beautiful skirt.  Anyways, enjoy.
