I Have Green Fingers

I admit, I buy cheap jewelry. So sue me! It’s just the green ring that’s embarrassing! Like sometimes I take off my jewelry mid day because it’s annoying, and I look down and see the NEW green ring that I DID NOT buy. Stupid.

Care for a cure? Try painting the inside of the cheap jewelry with clear coat nail polish. Works like a charm. And if you have the stain from NOT using this method, try heavy duty dish soap.

Does The Shoe Fit…

Now, if price weren’t an option, do you think it’d make you influence your choice of shoe? If you didn’t know which brand you were flaunting, would you care? You’d be surprised to see which brands are actually stylish–for a much much cuter price. Check back next week to see which shoes are actually the least expensive….I’m sure you’ll be surprised

Difference between style & fashion

Now, I’ve been looking at this quote for a couple of days (yes, I have been looking at it upside down, too. Hence the image) And I don’t know what to conclude. I mean I know what Giorgio Armani had in mind when he said it, but I don’t know how I want to interpret it. So, I’ve come to this:

Fashionista vs. Style Icon. Fashion is something you turn to when you don’t have good style. Fashion always points to high quality brands—style doesn’t. You can still have style without being “in fashion”. So when someone has good fashion, that’s the easy part. Finding your style is the creative part. And, as we all know–fashions fade but style is eternal.

Shoe Fairy

If you were to take one piece of advice away from my blog, take this.

Buy. Good. Shoes.

It’s not worth it to buy cheap shoes because in the end, you end up breaking them and replacing them and they’re forever. Shoes are an essential part to any wardrobe, so buy good ones and make them worth the money. Cheap clothes are acceptable (as long as you make it work!) because they’re easier to take care of…shoes you wear out. Trust me, I’ve gone through way too many pairs of $15 shoes…

Movie Night

Here in Miami, the Wynwood district is the place to be if you’re an artist. It’s full of galleries, street art, and homeless men. On the 3rd Friday of every month, some of my friends host a Foreign Film night at the Alejandra von Hartz gallery.  If you’re in the area, come out November 19th @ 8 PM to see “Le Fille Coupee En Duex” and listen to some live music by Quintet. $2 entrance fee.

I, of course, just had to wear an Anti Flirt suit and a Forever 21 necklace. I can never just dress for the occasion….

How To Vintage

Vinage Jean Look

Looking to get the vintage look from something that’s really not-so-vintage? Try this.

First off let me just say that I feel it is a lot easier to go through thrift stores finding “vintage look” items that really are vintage, than it is to spend hours converting your modern clothes to look vintage.

Nothing can compare to real vintage.

If you want to make a cotton-t soft and faded (like vintage ones), you soak the t-shirt in a mixture of 1 part water, 1 part salt, and 1 part bleach….just make sure you don’t soak it too long or the beach will REALLY wear it out. If you want to leave it in the sun first then wash it that works too. Logos can be applied either through iron-on transfers, stenciling, silk screening etc. If you wash a shirt in hot water quite often the design cracks, which could make the shirt look older.

If you want to make a larger neck on t-shirts, take scissors and cut off right under the hem. Be careful though, once it’s cut there’s no turning back.

For the jeans, if you’re looking to put holes in them or just wear them out, grab a cheese grader. Literally grade the jeans as if it were cheese, but watch out because it gets sharp. Or, you can try using sand paper…this just might take a little longer. Then the jeans were washed several times in the washing machine, until they reached the “vintage” look.

If you want a dark vintage color to your jeans, we need to make some coffe. Disgusting, coffee dye that is.

Take a large bucket, and fill it with enough water to soak your jeans. Then, take espresso style coffee and make a stocking coffee bag (get an old pair of stockings, fill the foot up with the coffee, tie at the end) and soak it in the water until it turns, well, the color of coffee. Then let your jeans soak in it over night. The next day, wash and dry them normally. And ta da! There you have it.

Also, bleach pens work great if you want to bleach a desired area. If you want the bleach splatter look, get a tooth brush and dip it in bleach then splash that on the clothing you desire to be splattered. But don’t get it on anything else!!! That can be dangerous.
