2 Besties, 2 Fall Looks you must try!

Hey loves!

Did you know that this morning you were about to partake in a double dose of sass and glam? :) Well you are! Today I am featuring my best friend/sister/partner in crime/fashionista KRYSTAL BAKER!!! Krystal and I were mobbin around town and I couldn’t resist her adorbs outfit.  I want to start featuring more of my gorgeous, fashionable friends so without further adieu I present to you my KB <3

Blouse-Trouve, Jeans-Paige, Wedges-Steve Madden, Scarf-Forever 21, Sweater-Halogen, Bag-Elliot Lucca, Hat-David and Young, Belt/Jewelry-Vintage, Glasses-Unknown (which I am pissed about bc I want them!)

What I love about Krystal’s look is that it screams “effortless Fall!”  Arizona doesn’t get super cold, so light layers are key.  I love the mixed animal prints, bold colors, nude heel, muted jean and blouse.  All of the pieces are strong on their own, yet they somehow work well put together. Krystal is so good at throwing together outfits and taking risks in her fashion.  She can truly pull off anything!

I hope you all have a wonderful day!!!!

Easy DIY Cap Toe Flats

Good Morning and Happy Veterans Day lovelies! Hopefully everyone has the day off and can honor the Vets in your life.  Today I am featuring a little DIY project that kept me busy this weekend.  I love the cap toe trend and considering I am on a spending freeze I thought I would get creative and attempt to dye one of my many pairs of suede shoes. **Stay tuned later this week for how I paired these bad boys**

To begin chose your shoe. I chose suede because it absorbs fabric paint the best. (Says Joan, the woman at Michael’s who helped me buy my supplies)

I am not a huge craft person. I love that this project only consists of 5 things besides the shoes…Fabric paint, tape, paintbrush, paper towels, and old newspaper/bag/magazines for underneath the shoe:

 

Tape paper towels on both shoes to prevent spillage and to ensure you get a nice, even, smooth line.  Now you’re ready to start painting. I applied 3 coats of a black sparkle paint.Allow to dry for about 30 minutes then remove the tape!

I love how they came out and I am considering getting a gold colored paint and adding a small gold stripe where the black and blue meet.Have you tried any DIY projects lately? Do tell! I want to start doing more projects like this.  Have a great Monday!

Bell Bottoms Up

Happy Halloween Loves!

I hope you are all being festive, dressing up, and gearing up for candy overhaul.  The 70’s to me were huge in fashion.  Often, I unintentionally find myself channeling an  androgynous look from the 70’s.  (She this one.)  When I purchased these pants I didn’t think I had shoes that were high enough for them.  It turns out I don’t really, but I really like that about them. I paired them with a tan bootie wedge from UO that I got last year.  I am currently crushing on tans, browns, chocolates so much right now.  I decided to mix and match neutrals on top to allow the main focus to be my ballerina tip toe effect.

AVC Jean Advice: It is good to have at least one pair of pants that are longer legged and have a wider bottom flare it really elongates the leg and creates a nice slimming effect.
