Style Inspiration: Yzma

Hello Style-istas!

I can not think of a more hilarious villain than Yzma from Disney’s Emperors New Grove!

Here is how we are inspired by her style:

Kristoff has got to stay warm and cozy and he definitely has that Classic Norway kind of style! My sister Alix was nice enough to model this look for me!

Easy DIY Scarf

I know Ive been focusing a lot on my photography, but I want this blog to be about ALL the things I like:) Which includes DIY.

So, I found these old cloth napkins at the thrift store a while ago. Ive kept them in a box, saying I was going to do something with them for forever. Today, I finally found inspiration in them.

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

I decided to make these four squares into a unique scarf..

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

1. Fold into a big triangle by putting 2 opposite corners together.

2. Put the corners of each folded triangle together so that they overlap.

3. Tie the corners together in a tight knot.

And that’s it, wrap it however you like:)

Don’t judge me, I know I look crazy:)

So I spent 30 cents on the four cloth napkins and it took all of 2 minutes to make.. not too shabby.

Bright Colors on Gloomy Days

This winter has been weirdly wet and rainy. The few normal winter days have been bitterly cold. I’ve been so tired of dark drab colors, so a couples weeks ago I bought a ton of bright sunny sweaters from the thrift store.
Believe me, I would do anything to get out of those icky weather blues. These sweaters really helped to brighten my day.

DIY : Headband

I found a skirt in a bag of freebies from my mom, that didn’t fit me well and for some reason smelled like old lady… however i liked the print and thought I could somehow use it as a refashion.
Im sorry, I forgot to take a before photo. But here is my DIY project I did, using the chiffon skirt liner.

image

1. After removing one of the liners seams, I opened it up and cut 3 long strips out of it (verticly).

image

image

2. Next, I stitched all 3 stips together at one end.

image

image

3. I loosely braided them together.

image

4. I sewed the other end together.

image

5. I looped one end around a poneytail holder (about an inch) and stitched the matieral together. And then I did the same thing on the other side.

TA-DA!!
Watcha think?? I know my sewing sucks so excuse me:)
