DIYDIY: Wrap Bracelet

 

Friendship bracelets are fun to wear and even more fun to make. I’ll show you how to create some cute wrap bracelets that you could pass along to a friend or keep for yourself! All you need are a few supplies and a lot of time, because you’ll want to make a bunch of these after you see how really easy it is. 
 

 

Materials needed:
  • 1.8 mm leather cord
  • Decorative chain (like the crystal chain we used here)
  • Colored waxed cotton cord
  • Scissors 

     

 

Instructions: 
  1. Fold the length of the leather cord in half and form a loop.
  2. Wrap the waxed cotton cord around the loop 6-7 times to secure the loop.
  3. Place the chain along the leather cording with the end of the chain meeting the end of the wrap. Wrap the cotton cord tightly 2 times around each crystal until you reach the end. Make sure that the bracelet is long enough to fit your wrist.
  4. When you get to the end, wrap the cotton cord around 3 more times and tie it into the leather. Tie a knot at the end of the bracelet to secure it to your wrist.

FashionFilm to Fashion: Clueless


Whether they’ve got their driver’s permit or not, the wheels of fashion will keep turning, and it’s no surprise that ’90s styles have been appearing both on and off the runways. Turning sweet seventeen this year, our favorite fashionable film,
Clueless, is forever our inspiration with its ultra-girlyness, and cute, preppy-vibe. From matching tweeds to be-dazzled sweaters, we think Cher and Dionne would have their hands all over this style board!

FashionBlogger Spotlight: Severine of The Clothed Chameleon

 
Time for another Blogger Spotlight! I love highlighting my favorite bloggers and showing off their rad style. It is the perfect opportunity to share the best of the best fashion bloggers out there.
I have to admit though, I feel like I am giving away one of my personal secrets right now. As a long time reader of The Clothed Chameleon, I almost didn’t want to share it with anyone because I thought Severine, the girl behind the blog, was that cool. Her style is so perfectly ’90s vintage, dark, and glam. Her blog has been on my personal blog roll forever and I have just been hoarding it all to myself. Sorry guys! What can I say, she is my ultimate favorite when I need fashion inspiration on those drab mornings.
Well, Severine reached out and said hello and asked if we wanted to work with her and I just about fell out of my chair. Of course I said yes and then promptly decided that it was a sign that LuLu*s readers must be exposed, if not already, to her amazing style! 
Are you ready?

Pattern mixing and long dark locks. Are you kidding? Amazing.

Perfect neutrals and bold dark lips.

Floral crowns and flowing sheer fabric, so dreamy.
Looking amazing in our Didn’t Start the Fire black dress and Rock Candy Sunglasses. I love the pastels mixed with the darks of her dress and shoes.
I want this entire outfit. Thank you!
Again, I love the pattern mixing and her perfect peachy makeup.
Hitting a jacket home run. This is an ideal winter ensemble.
Make sure to stop over at Severine’s blog and say hello. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Glad I got that off my chest! Shh, it will be our little secret!
