Three Mediocre DIY s

A velvet Wonderwoman bowtie. Made it out of fabric from an old headband, torn off the plastic, un-hemmed and stitched into a loop. Then I hot glued on a cake topper I got for 50 cents at a joke shop. Simply pin to any shirt! (works best with collars. It looks kind of stupid on a tee shirt where you can clearly see the pin.)

My crown of mini action figures, inspired by this Rookie article. Army guy, ballerina and pirate from joke shop: About $0.50 each. Headband from CVS: $3 for a whole package. Creativity: Priceless! (But no, it’s not that creative and that was the worst joke ever.)

Dobby Lego hair clip! Pretty self-explanatory: acquire Lego Harry Potter set. Glue the Dobby to a bobby pin. Sorry for the terrible quality photos. Photobooth is awful.

 

Love,

Black Ribbon

Recently I’ve been wearing a black ribbon every day. Not on purpose, but every day, usually as a choker or in my hair, or like Sandy from Grease (ribbon ponytail) but with longer bangs. I like how it looks with my super-pale skin- like a vampire. Here’s what I look like and some more black ribbon stuff because I just like the idea of wearing it as a tie. Also, ignore my messy hair.

“The Schoolgirl”

“The Sandy”

“The MeadhamKirchhoff Choker

“The Cute Japanese School Uniform”

The inspiration (especially for the last one)

Jason Wu Fall 2011

Emile Hirsch (I actually don’t know who he is… an actor, right?)

Meadham Kirchhoff RTW Spring 2012 (Is this what Twiggy’s eyes look like when she cries?)

Alexa Chung

Jenny (but her ribbon was green)

PS:

You probably remember Savvy from A Witch’s Style. Her old address (booksbananas.blogspot.com) has magically been deleted! Eek! It’s really too bad because she had some awesome outfit posts. But she’s going to continue blogging from her new domain (awitchsstyle.blogspot.com) so quit your crying and update the link in your blogroll! I just thought I’d let you know because I was upset about her blog being gone, as it was one of my favorites, and now I get to see it again!
