FashionTrend Alert: Black and White Stripes

Okay, so maybe it’s not quite a “trend“, seeing how this awesome color combo in charmingly classic stripes is a tale as old as time, but I will say that black and white stripes are EVERYWHERE at the moment, and I’m lovin’ it. Just take it from Michael Kors, Marc Jacobs, Oscar de la Renta, and your bestie: LuLu*s!

DIYDIY: Christmas Chain Bracelet

‘Tis the season for Christmas-y crafting, so somewhere in-between stuffing stockings and hanging twinkle lights, why not make a cute little holiday treat for yourself (or friends!)? Just dust off those skills from your elementary school days, and get into the spirit with this paper chain-inspired cutie!


The things you’ll need:

Liquid Stitch (or a similar permanent, CLEAR drying adhesive)

Ribbon (as many or as few as you like!)

Fabric Scissors

Optional: tweezers, cotton swabs, patience


First things first: Snip your ribbon into 1.5″-ish pieces. It’s helpful to do this ahead of time so you don’t lose track of the size.

Then: Spread a little glue on the end of the ribbon (it helps to use a cotton swab for precision), then loop it into a little circle and press the ends together. It’s okay to get a little sloppy, the glue dries clear. Voila! The chain begins…

Keep it up: Loop another piece of ribbon through the circle you just made, then repeat the process above until your chain has reached the desired length. This is where a pair of tweezers comes in handy to swoop into those tiny spaces.

That’s all folks: Yep, it’s that easy! When you’re done, and your glue is dry, simply snip another small piece of ribbon and tie the ends together in a neat little knot (or a bow, if you want to get all fancy), and slip it onto your festive little wrist!
