DIY Pearl Hat Band

I love hats. And I love pearls. After a recent trip to Santa Fe, I developed a passion for hat embellishments after scoring a couple of antique concho hat bands and horse hair tassels for my collection of fedoras and felt hats. So when I spotted Eugenia Kim’s pearl studded fedora, I had to recreate it for myself – with Swarovski pearls, of course! Only the best. What I love about this tutorial is that the hat band is actually removable, which allow you to choose your look, depending on a mood or the season.

DIY Crystal Studded Straw Bag

This crystal studded straw bucket bag is perfect way to upcycle the abundant amount of straw bags and baskets that I can’t seem to stop collecting during the summer months. Adding large crystals to the bag instantly adds glamour and transforms it into a winter appropriate accessory. Here, I’m simply using an inexpensive mini straw belly basket but of course, any small straw bag or basket will do . . .

DIY Macrame Feathers

Beautiful, wispy macrame feathers have been clogging up my social media feeds as of late – but I’m not mad about it. They’re incredibly beautiful and I’ve definitely found myself bookmarking them to purchase later, to hang in the kids’ room. But of course, I was also curious to know how they were made. How in the world do you achieve that perfectly soft fringe?!

Currently Crushing On: Dome Rings

I’m currently obsessing over domed metal rings. Fat, thin, silver, gold, and stacked . . . all of it. I’m loving this inspo from Japanese jewelry designer Asami Fujikawa. Though the jewelry isn’t available stateside,…
