What i've been working on...

ok so here is one of my dream dress' i would LOVE to own! originally from anthropologie, but i haven't been able to find it. and even if i did, its not like i would be able to afford it! but isn't it just lovely?!
so since i couldn't find it, i decided i would make it! with a few modification of my own. i love the lace and that has got to be the perfect color of mint in my book. so i want to keep the same concept BUT, i couldn't decide what color to do the skirt and i'd been wanting to try this tutorial i found on pinterest about draping. so, as i was trying to figuring out where in the world to start, i decided that instead of making one dress, i would make the top that i wanted so that i could change the skirt and i wouldn't have to choose just one color and it makes it available for many different looks! bonus!! my fav kind of skirt is colorful accordion or pleated midi, like a vibrant red or a pastel peach or mint. all of which i am currently on the hunt for!

so here's what i have so far...(p.s. sorry for the poor pics!)

i put one of my skirts on mydouble to visualize my finished product. as you can see i am not finished! i ran out of lace, so till i make a trip to the store i'm at a stand still! but i'm very pleased with how it looks, i can't wait till its finished! 

p.p.s i just bought that beautiful skirt from thekissingtreevintage and i love it!

i will definitely show you guys when its finished!

i'm back!... again

i am ever so sorry for these four months of silence! i have been super busy with school, dance and church; but things have calmed down so i will do my best to get into a groove of things.

a few weeks ago i came to the conclusion that a successful blog can have two aspects...
1. a white background. as you can see i have changed things up a bit and i really like it! i think its rather refreshing!
2. the mrs. of the blog has... bangs! you know its true! and i had been wanting some anyways.
hope you enjoy the new look and i'll be back soon!

a few blogs i follow

tis' the season for decor!

so after we finished putting up our christmas tree and all the decorations, we still had one empty wall left... after continuous brainstorming, and a little pinterest, we created this!

here's the how to!

-toilet paper tubes
-hot glue gun
-extra glue
-bunches of paper clips

1. collect collect collect! gather as many toilet paper tubes as possible, and store them in a safe place away from pets and the trash. i used 27 total. treat them like gold!

2. clean and cut. remove any extra shreds of toilet paper that are still glued on. then flatten the tube and using your ruler measure every 1/2inch and mark. i recommend marking high and low for easy cutting. and now cut!

3. get creative! now is when you get all fancy. start placing your petals all around in the shape you want and secure with paper clips so you can see your end picture before its final. i suggest starting out with a few 4 or 5 petal flowers and adding on to those. 

4. color time! and we paint! (optional: brown also looks great on a colored wall) choose a color, and spray paint away. (in the proper environment, of course!)

5. enjoy! once your paint dries, hang your masterpiece and bask in its glory!

don't worry, you can't mess up!
