for the love of leopard

3 Nov

from coats to dresses, to turbans, bloomers, and heels; leopard lives on this season! Leopard is a personal favorite of mine, so if anyone sees cute leopard items please let me know! Novio hates it…but I just love it. Happy Wednesday, this week is just flying by…

DIY: Golden Blossom Necklace

2 Nov

I saw this necklace on This is Glamorous and it reminded me so much of a piece I bought a few years ago that I haven’t ever worn. I figured…perhaps if I transformed it, I would work it into my wardrobe for once (or twice)…I also figured that I haven’t ever worn it so if it ends up looking shiteous I could just throw it out. So, I decided to give it a go…

The inspiration (retail $375)

Requirement: a trip to Michael’s to pick up some gold spray paint…

The necklace, before (purchased at Forever 21 for $5.80)

and after the 24k gold spraypaint ($6):

ta-da! A glam inspired piece for a fraction of the price. This picture was taken after one coat, I’m sure I’ll spray another when this dries. Please excuse my Chinese takeout menu 😉

Fun French song from 2008. You know I love my French music 🙂

daily dose of glam

1 Nov

Thank heavens for This is Glamorous for giving me glam photos to salivate over on a daily basis. Over the weekend I re-read The Debutante Divorcee and this website reminds me so much of that book, as well as Plum Sykes other huge hit, Bergdorf Blondes. The pink dress in particular reminds me of Tinsley: “I can’t have a job because I can only dress for the gym and for evening.” Tres chic!
