3 Paper Gem Accessories

Was anyone else enchanted by the jewels Meghan Markle wore on her wedding day? The tiara was impressive, yes, but it was the aquamarine stunner she wore to the reception that really stole the show in my opinion! Originally belonging to Princess Diana, the aquamarine ring was a special gift to Meghan from Harry’s mother’s collection. Unfortunately, I don’t see myself acquiring any large or precious gemstones in my near future, so I had to improvise. We made 3 Paper Gem Accessories to for you to wear to on special occasions, the workplace, or if you’re feeling extra, the grocery store! The necklace and earrings are great for everyday accessorizing, and the tiara is fun for birthday or bachelorette parties. Just follow some simple origami steps to make these beauties and a bit of glue and string turms them into something special!

Royal Wedding Mood Board

Royal Wedding Mood Board-2866

Was anyone else inspired by the Royal Wedding this past weekend? Honestly, I’m sad it’s over! We won’t have another royal wedding for a long time! Although there were elements of the wedding I would have altered (not about the small bouquet trend–more is more!), I thought it was breathtaking in its entirety! To keep the fun going a little bit longer, we put together a Royal Wedding Mood Board inspired by the special day of the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Aubrey Hepburn, lush foliage and English Gardens, and a muted palette create a beautifully timeless wedding. We also put together a lookbook for the wedding, complete with everything you need to put together a royal-inspired wedding! What was your favorite part of the wedding? We want to know!

My Favorite Rainbow Fashion Picks

If you haven’t heard, rainbows are trending like never before, especially in the fashion world! The Spring 2018 runways were full of technicolor spectrums that left us longing for more. Color is being embraced and no one wants to leave anyone out. If you’re a long time follower of Lars, you know full well how passionate we are about color and rainbow. I started the #CraftTheRainbow hashtag back in 2014, along with my #DressTheRainbow adventures (take a look here and here). So you can imagine how thrilled I am to see rainbows having their moment in the sun. If you’re still hesitant to jump on the bandwagon, allow Vogue, Harper’s Baazar, and The Zoe Report to help convince you.

DIY Tromp L’oeil Dress

Sometimes I want to live the life of the rich and famous and just go out a spend all my money on Mara Hoffman dresses, Loeffler Randal shoes, and vintage Chanel bags. Sometimes is actually a lot of times. Instead, I’ll just stick with Asos dresses that we jazz up with painted designer accessories! All my problems are solved! This DIY Tromp L’oeil Dress was inspired by the classic art technique that uses realistic imagery to create the optical illusion that the depicted objects exist in three dimensions. So basically, when someone sees you, they’ll think you have dozens of Chanel bags! You can pick any article of clothing that needs a refresher and add a Tromp L’oeil accessory! Think strings of pearls, a collar and button band, or a crossbody bag. It’s a quirky way to personalize your pieces.DIY Tromp L'oeil Dress
