Scarf Yourself DIY!

No secret… I like scarves. From silky and colorful to bulky and monochromatic, I have them all. They can easily dress up a simple outfit or give you an pop of color. They keep you warm on a cold day. The greatest thing is that there are not rules to scarves. Including making your own! Here’s a little Scarf DIY idea you can easily do.

Scarf

STEP 1: Go to the fabric store and pick a cool fabric. One morning last week I had a few extra minutes before going to work so I stopped at a fabric store on my way to the RTM studio. I thought that I could make a new scarf if I found a cool roll of fabric.

Fabril Rolls

I didn’t find anything that I liked and, feeling defeated, I headed straight for the door. Just then, as I walked down the isle leading to the door I noticed a pile of remnants and… BINGO!

Remnant

Right on top was a light blue remnant. The texture was very silky and I especially loved the embossed polka dots. The color was unlike anything I have in my closet.  I also really liked the way it draped when wrapped. So, I had it measured and took it home. The best part of this “fashion find” is the price: $3.24! Pretty awesome, right? No need to spend too much cash on this project. Continue reading for the rest of DIY.  Continue reading


Fancy Pants!

I found these golden pants by chance while shopping for socks to take on an upcoming trip to the homeland. They’re basically jeggings (shhhh!) The key to wearing something bold like this is to forget you’re even wearing it. Just think of them as another pair of jeans.

Fancy Pants

Gold pants, white knit sweater, denim jacket, black high heeled combat boots, and an eBook. I took a sec to read a book from my e-reader after our shoot for the day at RightThisMinute wrapped. To see a cool RTM segment with this look click here.
