D.I.Y Glitter Nails

Howdy ya’ll im back with another fun easy D.I.Y  project 

Glitter tips for your nails! You can either do this with fake or real nails.. lets get started :) 

 

Step 1.

Here are the supplies you will need

Glitter! make sure you find glitter that is extra fine

Clear nail polish

Nails and a file . Im terrible with my left hand. so i opted for fake nails for a better job.

Step 2.

Choose your nail Colour .  I went for a bright pink

Step 3.

Take your clear coat and brush on the polish everywhere you want the glitter to stay. to make it easy i m just coating the white tips of the nails

.

Step 4

Drop the nail in the glitter. make sure every inch of the coated tip gets covered in the glitter.

take it out and let it dry

Step 5

take it out of the glitter. using a brush wipe away all the glitter, once dry ( a few hours ) Glue the nails on and add a final top coat , to your entire nail to ensure the glitter wont flake off

AND YOUR DONE!

Quick Outfit Post!

Fall Trends Part 1

Ugh… as i write this post  it makes me shutter… yes i dont mind fall its really pretty and i love the  chance you get to play with layering before you go straight for the winter coats.. but i feel like there isnt enough summer!  But  im anxiously waiting the new fall merch! it should be a good season!

I also have decided to do this post in two parts.

so here is FASHION PROVOCATEURS  top / 10 trends this season

Trend #1 Color – Yes yet again we are seeing colour pouring on to the run ways! I m in love the the deep purple that is popping up everywhere along with neon orange, purple, sky blue and others designers such as Alberta Ferretti, Victoria Beckham,  Burberry Prorsum to name a few.

Trend # 2  Androgyny – alot of suits strong lines  manly shirts and boots to name a few. This always seems to be a theme in the fall time.  You see a TON of designers hoping on board Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, Sonia Rykiel, Stella McCartney, Balenciaga etc etc etc

I love chanel’s runway for this look

.

Trend #3 – Texture    Mixing lots of patterns textures together. lace / leather / fur /patters tons of layers!Gucci , Louis Vuitton , Etro

Gucci fall 2011

dolce and gabbana

Trend # 4 – 40s Elegance.  – Very happy about this one! I LOVE the retro  playbacks to this era,  last year we saw this trend with more of a 50’s vibe from Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton :)  Now Gucci John Galliano, Miu Miu.

Gucci

Jonathan Saunders

Trend #5 Midi and Maxi   Midi – it means a skirt to your knees or a bit longer! AND of course the maxi skirt/ dress which is again coming back! wearing this trend in layers is KEY! Designers who got on board with this trend; ries Van Noten, Chloe, Balenciaga, Roland Mouret, Antonio Marras, St.John and other designer collections.

Damn girl how did you fit all of that in dem JEANS

OK, so im not normally in jeans very often, but jeans are a staple in everyones closet. they never seem to fade out of style and they always go with everything

 so it got me thinking.. what are the perfect pair of jeans? and more importantly what are YOUR FAVOURITE BRAND?

I thought i would do a quick guide to finding your perfect fit

A) Triangle fit  – your hips are wider then your bust

STRAIGHT LEGGED – it makes you legs appearing to look longer

B) Inverted triangle – your shoulders or bust is larger then your hips

SUPER-FLARE they are great for Balancing out hips and thighs for a streamlined look.

C) Hourglass –  Your hips and shoulders are approximately the same size and you have well defined waist

BOOT CUT –  a curve friendly boot that will create a smooth line that will balance your hips

D) Rectangle – your bust and waist are similar in size and you lack a defined waist line

SKINNYS, BOYFRIEND, BOOT CUT..  you can pull of many styles to great bigger hips.

Jeans that fit everyone !

STYLE: STRAIGHT LEG
GOOD FOR:Elongating short legs with a no-fuss cut that dresses up or down.

STYLE: BOYFRIEND
GOOD FOR:Looking effortlessly sexy, as the relaxed cut works on all shapes.
STYLE: ANKLE-LENGTH
GOOD FOR: Boyish or petite figures, as they’ll never have to be tailored andcan show off shoes!

STYLE: WIDE LEG
GOOD FOR: Tall and curvy types; this cut merges casual and trendy.
STYLE:THE NEW SKINNY
GOOD FOR:Slimming legs and hips with a bit of stretch and a longer hem.

STYLE: BOOT CUT
GOOD FOR:Everyone! The most universally flattering jean is cool again.also.. if you are curvy try to stay away from skinny jeans, if you have no bum try to find jeans with back pockets

some of my favourite jeans – true religion, seven, rock and republic , mavis and frankieB and i do try to always wear some kind of heel with a jean.. just makes the look feel polished

.

abercrombie and fitch

Juicy Couture

D.I.Y

 Yah im really excited that i finally finished sewing my  off the shoulder messenger bag!  I absolutely love designing and creating, its one of the things in fashion i enjoy most!  I  recycled these old  flare jeans  and I sewed the lining with a great gingham fabric that i picked up at the fabric store for cheap cheap cheap!

Denim is huge this  season i was so glad i could sew and create my own bag, its a fun way to recycle something and keep costs down!!  Please keep in mind denim is a tough fabric to sew so its best to have a sewing machine :) I cannot wait to start my dress   any suggestions for a fabric let me know!!!

louis vuitton & my novel – the girl with the dragon tatooo  ( great read!)

 

 

 

 

adding a simple camisole underneath a low cut top adds great flare , as well as adding a belt can help break up the dress to add some dimension

 

 

 love mybag!

 

 

keeping things very simple.  My headband was even created from a pair of old stockings that had a hole in them!  They were for my garter skirt, so it had a lace detail  so i m using it now as a headband d.i.y!

Dresses

Dresses are one of my most favourite pieces of clothing ever created! Evey dress i put on i feel like a princess in it. It makes you  look very lady – like – and very stylish!  I hate that girls / women don’t wear dresses like they used to. I ve already started my summer dress shopping starting at H&M garden collection which i will show later on in blog ;) My inspiration this summer is the 50’s  summer dresses. I plan to wear one every – single  day in the summer!

This blog started out with my outfit for the day, but since i was wearing a dress i thought i would show case a few of MY FAVOURITE dresses i own :) enjoy

the sun is shining the weather is sweet

I am very lucky to live by a lake, there is something about the water  its very enchanting very calm and soothes my body and soul!  Its part of the great lakes in Oakville Ontario, you cannot swim in the water  which is very depressing this is why I can not wait to be laying on a beach in Europe soaking up the culture, the landscape and the fashion! But for now i have to make do, with the lake in my town! I will be adding more posts  about the different shops and boutiques  that i like to shop at in Oakville. It is a great little bubble town with a low population beautiful scenery and limited fashion tastes, thats what brought me to write a blog, to express my style!

Here are  a few pictures i took using different examples of switching up an outfit to  creat several different looks with the  main focus on a  ripped, rolled up boyfriend jean   enjoy! xo

Grey Cardigan – Garage , Blank spandex tank top – Victoria Secret , Jeans – Juicy Couture, Cork wedges sandals – Aldo
