Whenever we feel a little less than inspired or simply want to pass the time, Pinterest has always been one of our favorite pick-me-ups. This heaven-sent social media platform is especially helpful when it comes to finding style inspiration. So whether you’re having lunch with your girlfriends this weekend or going on an afternoon shopping spree, we found the cutest outfits on Pinterest that you can easily cop. Scroll through these stylish looks and pin your faves!
1. Off-shoulder top + white trousers + ankle strap sandals
If you find your PVC template is at all creased during shipping, we advise that you lay it between two towels and carefully iron on the lowest setting. This will remove any lines.
1. Lay your PVC template on a table. You will see that there are two plastic cut out sections in the middle of the template. These need to be folded up to create a flat surface in between that will be the base or bottom of your bag.
2. Fold the front and back panels of the bag up and across the short tab, making sure to carefully align the holes. You will note that one edge will be showing of the PVC on the sides of the bag, make sure it is the edge closest to the bag of the bag (adjacent to the flap).
3. Push the screw through from the inside of the bag and secure with the cone stud fastening on top, ensuring you fasten all three layers of PVC together.
4. Do both sides as well as the top of the bag, screwing in the studs to secure.
5. Add the loop by folding in half, pushing a screw through and inserting through the hole left on the side. You will need to push the loop and stud combo down between the two pieces of PVC on the top side of the bag.
7. Attach the handle on both sides by clipping the clasps onto the loops. You may need to squeeze the plastic so the handle can attach properly.
8. Add studs to the front flap of the bag.
9. Finally, carefully tighten all screws with the screwdriver, particularly the screw attaching the loop to the bag. This is very important so your bag can handle the stress of daily use and keep its shape.

Hi everyone! I’m so happy and honored to be a guest poster on Creature Comforts today. I’ve been following along with excitement as Ez has shared her big move with us. Having just moved across the country myself, I am empathetic to the anxiety and discombobulation that comes along with the thrill of a moving adventure. To pack up all your stuff and leave your known environment, only to arrive in a place that needs a lot of settling can overwhelm anyone! Ez has handled this transition seamlessly and gracefully on the blog. She makes it all look so easy. Nonetheless, I am hoping this post eases her blog burden ever so slightly in the transition. I adore this fun jewelry tutorial. I hope you do, too!
I originally made a neon green version of these hoops for an 80′s Halloween party–perfect under the black lights. When I went to pick colors for this tutorial, however, I pulled this more gentle color palette with a punch of black. I think it’s so lovely. These hoops are simple to make, yet such a fun splash of hand made in your wardrobe. Add the ability to customize every pair and you might just not be able to stop making them. I adore these little black and white ones.
These hoops make for a fabulous last minute, personalized gifts, too! Here’s the tutorial:
Embroidery thread (I suggest DMC 6-strand floss for a smooth finish)
Inexpensive hoop earrings (I found these at Target)
Cut 40” of chosen embroidery thread colors for a large hoop, less for smaller hoops. If you place the hoops in your ear before you start, it will help you decide where to change colors and place the majority of your design color work (remove hoop from ear before next step).
Start by placing a small bit of craft glue at the end of the hoop.
Take desired embroidery thread colors and line them up parallel to the hoop, placing the end of the thread in the bit of glue. Choose the thread color you want to start with and begin wrapping it around the hoop…the other colors you aren’t using they go along for the ride (make sure they are being hidden by the thread color that you want to have showing). Keep wrapped thread snugly side-by-side so you can’t see the hoop or other colors underneath.
When you want to change colors, drop the first color parallel to the hoop and start wrapping with the next color you’d like. Repeat to change colors again. Change as many times as you’d like.
When you get to the end, place another small bit of glue. Wrap thread directly over that glue, using your finger to wipe away any excess. Trim the embroidery thread colors that you are not using first as close to the hoop as possible. Then place a little extra glue to secure the remaining thread over the ends of the other colors, and trim excess. Repeat the finishing process on the other side of the wrapped hoop. Repeat full process for your other earring. Voila!
To create the striped earrings, simply wrap the embroidery threads together at the same time, as if they were one. Keep them in the same alignment as you wrap, and finish with the same process as used above.
Fashion month has come and gone, yet our heads are still reeling with all the looks we’ve seen on the runways of New York, London, Milan, and Paris. And of course, it’s not fashion week without trends emerging for the coming season. Do designers huddle just before they create their collections or do they just have that telepathic ingenuity that dictates what goes in our closets and what gets pushed at the back? We may never know. But what we’re sure of is that we’re following where they lead. To give you a look at which sartorial direction these fashion authorities are taking us, we’ve listed the top trends of Fall 2015 that we simply can’t wait to try.
It’s all about sass this fall, and there’s no better way to flaunt what you got than shorter hemlines and shiny fabrics. You can opt for pretty pastels a la Shiatzy Chen or be sexy in silver as seen at Felder Felder. Emanuel Ungaro, Tod’s, and Sonia Rykiel teach us to go beyond sheen and have fun with prints and embellishments.
The turtleneck in general is a huge trend all over the fall runways. But our favorite styling trick is layering this cozy piece underneath dresses with plunging necklines. Who says you can’t wear that v-neck frock when the temperatures drop? Take cues from Jill Stuart and Tanya Taylor for the perfect summer-to-fall transition, while Sonia Rykiel shows us the route to taming that extra sex appeal.
If spring has gingham,then fall has plaid. This preppy look isn’t hard to miss as designers claim it as the season’s signature pattern. House of Holland gives us a patchwork twist, while Fay, Blugirl, and Marc by Marc Jacobs serve us that classic schoolgirl style.
With all the heavy layering and excessive fur that the fall season brings, we can’t always cop these looks straight off the runway considering the fact that we’re on the tropical side of the globe. However, the outerwear trend that we can’t forgo is the cape. It’s definitely more practical than, say, a duster coat or a shearling jacket. For a chic and tailored look, get inspired by Delpozo and Tibi. For that out-of-the-country trip out west, Michael Kors and Ralph Lauren know just how to keep you warm in style.
Speaking of keeping the temperatures at bay, wearing tights is the stylish way to go if it’s going to be cold outside. Fashion houses know how to keep it fun with lace, colors and prints. We love the polka-dotted hosiery at Diane Von Furstenberg, and the girly ensembles at Giamba styled with fishnets and what-nots.
The ’70s is making waves this spring, and we think it’s only fitting that the ’80s follow suit. Designers made our disco dreams come true with metallics in bold colors, sequins, animal prints, and that distinct flashiness of the vibrant era. From Miu Miu’s puffled shoulders to Au Jour Le Jour’s print craze, the ’80s surely made a comeback this fall.
Carwash pleats are all the rage this season. Aside from metallics, this skirt trend is a must-try come Fall 2015. Accentuate your gams with these slits as seen at Oscar de la Renta, Christian Dior and Sally LaPointe. Tommy Hilfiger gives a sporty spin to this look, while Thakoon shows us that calf boots and carwash pleats are a match made in heaven.
We think that by now, the fashion world has resigned to the fact that we can never shake off the fringe. How can we when it gives us that extra ‘oomph’ on the streets and the dance floor? Edun and J. Mendel put strategic fringes on asymmetrical dresses, while Rebecca Minkoff serves us an interesting mix of jazz bohemia.
High-waist silhouettes are in this season which give off that longer and slimming look. You can either go for tailored pant suits as seen at Altuzarra, Jason Wu, and Acne Studio, or rock a skin-tight pair a la Rodarte.
Kendall and Kylie Jenner have immersed themselves into the world of fashion design once again. This time around, they team up with one of our favourite high street brands, Topshop. Designed entirely by the duo, the collection captures their lifestyle, exuberating youthful and laidback California fashion, perfect for what remains of the summer!
The collection comprises vintage shapes in Hawaiian prints and bold slogan jerseys that sit alongside distressed denim and blouson tops. Sophisticated, sleek duster coats, sheer wide leg trousers and layered maxi dresses complete the look.

I recently saw this bag, and did a little ooh-ing and ahh-ing over it, but for $175 it wasn’t an option. When I was at Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago, I discovered a plain canvas tote I knew I had to put to use! I came up with this…
Using the same steps as the DIY Sequin Clutch, and similar supplies, this tote was a breeze to make!
Total Time: 10 minutes
Total Cost: 6$!

You can’t beat that! I made this for a dear friend of mine and can’t wait to send it to her.
