Get The Look: Bit Of Bling

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.

DIY Using Pearls.

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.
