GROOVY GOOD VIBRATIONS ✌🏾️

GROOVY GOOD VIBRATIONS ✌🏾️

Well folks, I'm slowly easing my way out of denial that Summer is over. The first official day of Fall is this Thursday and no amount of crying will change that. So what's a girl to do? The weather is already cooling down and as a last hurrah I decided to do an end of Summer look that works well for the slight chill in the air. Let's face it, Winter is the one I have quarrels with. 

Join Mildred (my #RetroAlterEgo) and I on our last Summer Sixteen stroll in NYC decked out in a playful look inspired by Archie/Betty & Veronica comics with a 70's vibe.

DIY - ART-INSPIRED PAINTED MIRROR

.

My latest  DIY home decor project is live on about.com and is inspired by the work of artist by the name of Chad Wys. His art fascinated me and I found myself poring through his collections and ordered one of his prints online. 

I was captivated by his use of modern, geometric patterns juxtaposed against very traditional artwork. I've always enjoyed the mix of modern and vintage in my home (as well as in my closet) which is probably why Wys’ work struck a chord with me so quickly and pretty soon I had the urge to do a little creating of my own.

Head over to the post on about.com to see how you can create this art-inspired DIY for your walls.

LADYBUG LOVE 🐞❀️

LADYBUG LOVE 🐞❀️

Hello love bugs! I hope you had a good weekend. Have you ever found yourself saving your pieces for a special occasion or do you refuse to wear a look until you get the perfect accessory? I do this often, sometimes  having unworn pieces for a year or more and the change in seasons don't help with my stubborn ways!

Putting together a look is a creative process for me as well as a way to express myself. Much like my DIY projects or when I'm decorating an event or space; I have a vision and won't stop until that vision comes to life. Do you do this when putting together a look or creative project? Can't stop, won't stop!
