It’s really true that diamonds are a girls best friend. A bit of sparkle adds so much to a look. When you’re on a budget like me and can’t settle for the real thing all the time, my favorite go-to for accessories are rhinestones. Whether it be a brooch, a hair pin or even a phone cover. I am pretty much obsessed with bling and it really steals everyone’s attention.
Sparkling Creations by Shauna produces blinged-out handcrafted phone cases that I think are adorable and I especially love my new one pictured. They range from $30-$40 and you can pick one up here! The brooch I got from Nordstrom and I think it is perfection. With sparkle like this, you can pretty much pair it with anything. Since the winter is coming up, what I like to do is pin it right onto my winter coat. It definitely gives it a little something extra!
As for the hair pin, I picked this one up one day when I was at a flea market. As I always say, the best finds are found at your local markets and thrift shops. By doing a little digging, you find the best treasures.
Rag & Bone had launched their first handbag called the “Pilot.” The name comes from their inspiration of an Air Force pilot’s helmet carrier. The striped bag (shown below) will retail for $995 and their solid colors retail for $895 for their larger bags and $725 for their smaller ones. Their solid colors include walnut, mocha, and black.

So today I was pretty bored and realized.. what would be a better day than to do some DIY clothing and accessories?
I had a bag of fake pearls due to a necklace breaking so I figured I’d do something with those. I decided to make a bunch of stuff including a pair of shorts, a headband, 2 clips and adding some pearls to a collar. All of the looks came out pretty perfect and I am really happy with them. As you guys know already I LOVE hot glue and figure its 10x faster than pulling out my sewing machine so that’s exactly what I used.
The shorts are pretty cool looking. I bought a pair of black jeans from Forever 21 for a mere $10 and simply cut them into shorts and distressed them a bit. Then I hot glued 2 rows of pearls on each belt loop to liven them up. For the headband I did exactly what I do for my flower headbands(in my Summer Lovin’ Look and DIY headbands) and just used pearls instead of paper flowers. For the clips I just glued on the pearls one by one. Super easy! And for the collar I decided on a small triangle on each corner. It took about 5 minutes and it really makes a difference to the old shirt. Don’t you guys think?
I love love love DIY because I get a chance of remaking clothes and giving them a trendier feel. I hate to get rid of clothes because I figure there can always be something done to change it up. Adding some studs, beads, or in this case pearls, can really transform your wardrobe.
In honor of Coachella beginning, I picked 10 accessories that would be perfect for the festivals and concerts that are coming up. These items will be great for any music event including the east coasts very own festival, Firefly!
Jason Wu’s entire Fall 2012 Accessories collection has been posted on his website. Both shoes and bags are simply gorgeous. Wu had a lot of burgundy, emerald, and deep blue in his accessories and a slight oriental feel in some pieces. Here are my favorites in each style from the collection.
