As you all know, I’m OBSESSED with lace! My current obsession is tights, tights, TIGHTS. I’m pretty tall (5’9) to be exact, and wearing tights allows me to wear my miniskirts with ease and class throughout winter!

I absolutely adore the contrast of bright tights and neutral tops – but as always, my number one rule is have fun with what you’re wearing! Be comfortable, and be you!

DIY Holloween Costume: How to Make The Best Loofah Costume

31 Oct

I’m so excited to share my Martha Stewart moment with you guys. My Halloween costume for this year was a total DIY experiment and it turned out great! Dressing up as a loofah was not only super fun, it was also ridiculously comfortable! We were stopped multiple times and asked to pose for photos, and obviously we happily obliged (helloooo 5 minutes of fame!)

Loofah Halloween costume bath puff sponge pouff cute sexy costume and how to make it prettyplease

Since a bunch of friends asked, I am going to share how I created the Loofah/bath puff/bath sponge (wtv you call it!) costume. Don’t be afraid of the instructions, it took me 30 minutes to make the entire thing!

MATERIALS YOU NEED:

I got all of the material at Joann Fabrics. I’m sure any fabric store in your area will carry these items.

  • 25 yards of Matte Tulle (I went with the color cranberry)
  • 1.5 yards of elastic (I got 3/4 inch width but you could go with 1/2 inch as well)
  • 1.5 yard of braided rope

Other stuff:

Step 1:

Start by cutting your 25 yards of tulle into 10 equal length pieces. That means each piece will be 2.5 yards in length. 1 Yard is 3 feet so each individual piece will be 7.5 feet long. (FYI The tulle should come folded in half already, DO NOT unfold it.)

Step 1 of how to make a loofah costume

Step 2:

Take each 2.5 yard piece and fold it into half, then another half. Each piece will now be 0.625 yards in length.

Step 2 of how to make a loofah costume

Step 3:

Take the elastic and cut 1 piece out to fit your waist and another piece out to fit you right below your bust line. Measure these pieces, cut them out and then just tie a tight knot at the end of each piece.

Step 3 of how to make a loofah cutting out the elastic

Step 4:

Cut out 10 small pieces of the elastic about 5 inches each. You’ll be using these to hold the tulle together that you created in Step 2 and to tie it to the larger elastic you created in Step 3. Sounds confusing? Keep reading.

Step 5:

Now take 1 piece of the 5 inch elastic you created in Step 4 and tie it in the center of one of the tulle pieces you folded in Step 2. Do this with all 10 pieces of tulle and elastic.

Step 5 of how to make a loofah tie the tulle in the middle

It will look like this:

Step 6:

Take the 5 of the 10 pieces you created in Step 5 and tie them to one of the elastic bands you created in Step 3. Do the same with the other 5 pieces of tulle and the other elastic band.

Step 6 of how to make a loofah make a tulle skirt

Once you tie up the 10 tulle pieces to the 2 elastic band, you’ll end up with 2 tulle skirts. They look like this:

Step 6 of how to make a loofah make a tulle skirt

Step 7:

Take the braided rope you purchased and tie it to the top tulle skirt’s elastic. That will be loofah’s hanging rope.
Anddddd you’re done!!!

PUTTING THE COSTUME ON:

Now all you have to do is put on your American Apparel dress (you can wear shorts and a tube top instead) and place the 2 “tulle skirts” you made on your waist and below your bust line. Now when you put it on, it’s not going to look right because it will have a bunch of gaps in it. Don’t worry, cut up some of the folded edges of the tulle piece to make them puffier. The tulle will also be very flat when you put it on for the first time but make sure to crumple it up with your hands to make it even puffier. I also ended up taking some of the tulle from the tulle skirt on the top and sticking it in my dress so everything stays in place. And it did!

If you want more pictures and directions, you should check out Razmataz  where I figured out how to make this costume. The directions were a bit confusing then, but they have been updated since.

I wore ballet flats instead of heels and it was the most comfortable Halloween costume I’ve ever worn!

Guys Going Sockless: Yay or Nay?

18 Jul

The sockless summer trend for guys is definitely one that I am a big fan of though I can’t seem to figure out why I think it makes a man look oh so sexy. Maybe I’m just tired of the V-neck tshirts (though I was never not tired of it, truth be told I’m pretty traumatized by it) and think guys should figure out new ways to show some skin. Or maybe it’s the “I didn’t do laundry so I don’t have clean socks to wear but I’m still looking extra fly” look that does it for me. Who the hell knows. But let’s get one thing straight, if you’re still sporting this look that my dad (sorry dad, you’re still the best) successfully pulls off every weekend then you have bigger problems.

high socks sneakers and khakhis nerdy dad

Head over to the nearest Costco and buy yourself a 50 pack of some ankle socks. For the other more sophisticated sock enthusiasts, if you already have your masters in ankle sockery then maybe you can move onto something more challenging such as the sockless look.

This is a power couple thats under a lot of speculation, but a couple that I’m secretly rooting for! Check out some of their looks!
