Summertime Fashion Tips and Trends - How to dress sexy and appropriately AND beat the heat.

women's sporting event outfits

 Outside or sporting events come with fashion challenges in the summer. 

To keep cool and classy, choose cotton pants or capris that offer ventilation and won't stick to your body paired with a baby tee or crop top. If you're still worried about showing too much, grab a collared shirt and tie it around your waste or wear loosely over your top.

Things You Can Make With A Glue Gun (Unique mirror frames, lampshades, swimwear, shoes, and even hair extensions!)

Oh the things you can do and make with a hot glue gun...
And I've tried them all. These projects not only produce professional results from hot glue adherence, but hold up over time...Yes even the swimwear (Hot glue can get wet and cold water washed, just DO NOT put in the dryer.)

Embellish Your Bikini - How to make last season's swimwear this season's trend.

Because of my constant, craft obsessive ticks, I haven't personally found myself in the hell-on-earth predicament (at least not since I was like 13) of being caught in the same swim suit as another girl. I do know, however, that the risk of realizing you are standing in the fruity drink line on your Carribean Cruise boat next to a girl who is dawning the same bikini that you blew last months bonus on because it looked "totally unique" is nightmare enough for you to want to throw your fruity drink on...YOURSELF, in attempt to achieve your one-of-a-kind look...at last! In truth, the only way to really achieve that elusive one-of-a-kind summer guise, is to take what you have to Gem Class. I've got all kinds of options for turning last season's, worn-out duds into this year's must-have, flair.

LET IT RIP
Cutting slits into a lycra swimsuit can really edge it up. Just make sure the suit you want to destroy has lining or be EXTRA strategic when making those cuts! Nothing's worse than getting scissors deep into a project and realizing you've made some brain-lapsing mistake and there's no recovery button.
Lay your swimsuit flat on the ground or surface. I choose the ironing board b/c its height is perfect for this project and it reminds me to cut CAREFULLY as to not disrupt the swimsuit's lining OR the ironing board's padding. Use scissors, but only use one of the blades, to GENTLY and LIGHTLY make slits in the lycra part of your swimwear by pushing the end of the scissor blade into the fabric and SLOWLY dragging it accross. You will probably have to use a LIGHT "sawing" motion to get the blade to slice through the fabric without pulling or snagging it. I also find you can use the end of the scissor blade to start the slit and then cut through it using scissors normally. Horizontal slits only. (It is impossible to make them slanted or any other way as the cut won't be straight and you will probably just end up with a hole.) Refer to the photos in this post to know how far apart or close together you can make the cuts.

Femininely Androgynous - How to make trending menswear look sexy...and get the look for less.

Hugh Hefner's famous men's magazine, Playboy, is more world-widely known and recognized, than any other of its kind. Ask Playboy readers what makes the magazine's photos stand out over the web's endless supply of eye-popping, chest-clutching, uncensored nude media and the unanimity of the answers can be chalked up to the following summation: Playboy's images are more "classy" than images in other magazines. The photos emit sex, but in a "artistic", and more "beautiful" less "raunchy" way. I decided THAT is the EXACT portrayal I try to accomplish when I dress myself..."classy sexy".

How to Make a Feather Skirt Peplum DIY, Without Sewing


How to Make a Peplum from Feathers
When these vintage-inspired, short, over-skirts became all the rage, I immediately started thinking up how to put my personal spin on the accessory. Search Google Shopping for 'feather peplum' and find one for purchase, I dare ya! Not there right? Feathers it was! After all, one doesn't wrap up in a peplum for the ballgame. This was going to be my outfit addition for an appropo, special occasion. And so began my feather peplum creation. What do you think? Making this thing is sooooo easy peasy I almost feel a little embarrassed and "high-n-mighty" to be giving you instructions on how to glue feathers to elastic...but here goes. Please leave feedback.
