DIY clutch bag
This has become one of my favorite evening clutch bags. It works well with dressed up and fancy outfits as well as with edgier looks. It’s so fun and adds just a little bit of fun to a regular clutch.

Here’s What You’ll Need…

* Old clutch you can sew onto {or you can use glue, but it will be messier and not last as long}
* Chiffon or sheer fabric {mine is polyester}
* Scissors/Needle Thread
I used a 9″ x 5″ vintage lace/satin snap clutch I found at Goodwill for 3.99 {if you’re going for an exact look …use a purse like this or this}

thigh highs with wood wedges-floral carved wedges
You can’t think of ’90s fashion without ’60s and ’70s styles coming to mind, well, I can’t anyway, because when I think back to some of my favorite looks of the time, they were either inspired by those decades, or quite literally taken from them. In the ’90s is when I started really shopping at thrift stores, and not only that, I chose thrift shops over new stores because they had the exact styles I was looking for vs the new shops which had nothing even close or crappy replicas of the styles I was looking for, which to me, back then, was far less cool than having the original.
As I am much older now, I can see the value in new looks inspired by old fashions, and since it has been twenty years since the ’90s now, there is a fun mix of all the decades into one new and modern look, and this is fun… or at least, this is what I tell myself to make aging more fun for me 🙂
Anyway… I recently had a flashback to the groovy floral wedges of the ’70s that becamepopular in the ’90s and thought it would be fun to DIY a pair of my own since they don’t really exist anywhere to buy just yet, other than these gorgeous mosaic wedges by Dolce & Gabbana, which are similar, but not exactly the crafty, woodsy, hand-made ’70s style I was going for.
So I grabbed my woodburner and my wood-soled leather strap wedges I bought a few years ago, and got busy. To be honesty, I’ve actually had a surprising amount of practice with a wood burner, on leather, more than wood… I used to burn a similar floral design into leather belts a million years ago, so I thought I’d free-hand it all over my shoes because it’s pretty cute, but any floral design will turn out cute as well.

Here’s What You’ll Need…

DIY 70s-90s Flower Wedges-1
  • Wedges with a true wood sole. Mine are Steve Madden from a few years ago… Opt for leather straps if you want to decorate those as well.
  • Woodburner pen
Make sure to do this in an open/ventilated area and wear glasses if the {very small amount of} smoke irritates your eyes.


DIY 70s-90s Flower Wedges-2-wood burner
Your woodburner tool probably comes with four different tips. I like the curved tip with a point best. I believe it’s the calligraphy tip, but it creates the smoothest lines without breaking or getting stuck in the grooves.
NOTE: Most wood-soled shoes, however, usually have a finish, which makes burning a bit more difficult. Draw your designs out with pencil or pen first if you’d rather be more precise and/or find printable designs.
DIY 70s-90s Flower Wedges-3
There are a few options for free-hand designs…
Create your flowers slowly and one at a time or…
DIY 70s-90s Flower Wedges-2
Burn them all on lightly at once to create your print, then go over each one slowly to get the full burned effect.
DIY 70s-90s Flower Wedges-5
Do all the wood at once and all the leather at once because they burn differently.
Use a lighter touch on the leather and a heavier hand on the wood. The leather will burn quicker and easier and smoother, but if there’s a finish to it, which there most likely will be, it will stick to your burner and you’ll have to let it sit to warm up again after a few flowers drawn.

Go over any light burned section for a more in-depth design. Be as simple or as intricate as you like!

Make sure to space your flowers out and cover all areas, including the back. Don’t worry if your designs aren’t perfect! That’s the point!
I skipped the ankle straps, but you can choose to decorate any, all, or just parts of your shoes. Get creative!

And… Voila!

I have to wear my groovy floral wooden wedge sandals with socks at the moment because it’s Winter {and let’s be honest, I haven’t had a pedicure in months} but also… brrrr, it’s cold out herrr!

5 On-Trend Ways to Wear Leggings Like an It-Model

We can no longer deny it: leggings are totally back. But hold that cringe because it’s not as bad as you think, especially when it-models Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid, and Hailey Baldwin are the ones responsible for this major fashion comeback. And you know that wherever these girls lead, we usually follow.
From wearing gym clothes to the streets to creating nighout-ready outfits, these girls have mastered the art of resurrecting the leggings. If you’re still not convinced, these five lessons from our favorite style stars will surely make you reconsider:

1. Wear it with a bomber jacket.

Gigi Bella
There’s no better way to make your leggings 2016-appropriate than pairing them with the it-jacket of the season. Slip into some high-top sneakers or lace-up boots to get Gigi and Bella’s off-duty look.

2. Throw on an oversized button-down.

Kendall Gigi
Whether it’s your trusty striped shirt or your boyfriend’s flannel, this look is effortlessly cool. Add some on-trend accessories such as a choker, a pair of flat lens sunnies, or platform kicks to spice up your outfit.

3. Go for a sheer-panelled pair and a vintage tee.

Gigi Kendall
For a touch of rock-and-roll, take out that band tee from the back of your closet and pair it with some sheer-panelled leggings. Gigi’s unexpectedly sexy outfit looks perfect for a night out.

4. Try the atheleisure trend.

Hailey Bella
Who says leggings and sweatshirts are only for the gym? As far as these ladies are concerned, athleisure is the cool girl-approved trend to try ASAP! Go for a cropped sweater and your favorite pair of sneakers to ace this street style look.

5. Add a twist with a knotted top.

Hailey Gigi
If you can’t be bothered to wear anything besides a t-shirt, knot it at the front or on the side to give it an interesting twist (literally.) Layer some dainty necklaces to lend your simple outfit a bit of glint.
