Last Minute V-Day Outfit

It’s valentines day the day of LOVE <3
Not sure on what to wear on valentines day? heres a few ideas..

Wear something cute, you want to be cute not slutty.. yes you are trying to impress your significant other but don’t wear clothes that show too much cleavage or is too short.. You don’t want them staring at your boobs the whole day or night and not listening or paying attention to you. Remember its all about personality and spending quality time with your other half..not how slutty you dress

If you’re going on a picnic, movie or something not as formal wear clothes that are casual but not too casual. Wear Flats instead of sneakers, Nice pretty top with pants or shorts or a cute playsuit etc.. You may want to stay away from heels & dresses as if you’re walking a lot.. you don’t want to be taking off you’re shoes as thats not attractive at all so stick with flats on a casual date also if you’re going on a picnic or somewhere that you’re sitting on the ground/windy etc.. stay away from dresses as you don’t want to flash them or feel uncomfortable.

DIY: Formal Dress

DIY: Formal Dress

Can’t find the perfect formal dress or its all too expensive? I have the solution.. maybe? .. turn a plain looking dress into something a little bit fancy and more appropriate for a formal or ball.

IMG_8849-1

What You Need:

1. A Dress (preferably plain) I got mine from Xenia Boutique (Follow Me Dress) and they’re still selling it (:

2. Material of your choice (something a bit fancy like sequin material.. thats what i used)

3. Sewing Needle

4. Cotton

5. Scissors

6. Pins

How to:

1. Get your chosen dress, lay it out, put your material on top and cut it to the about shape and size  (I’m redoing the top of my dress.. the front and back) I did this in 3 parts..

Part 1: (the front) Once cut to the shape on the front.. pin it on the dress try it on and make sure the edges of the material will go to the edges of the top part of the dress if all good take it off and then sew it ( I sewed it by hand but you can use a sewing machine if you want, probably will be quicker but up to you)

Part 2 & 3: (the back)

I did the back in 2 parts as the zip ran down the middle if your zip is not down the middle or you don’t have a zip then you can do this with one part.

Part 2: Cut the material a little bit bigger as the back of my dress is stretchy if yours is not don’t worry about doing this carry on and repeat part 1. Pin one side of the material on the dress. Put the dress on and get someone else to help you pin the rest of the material onto the dress so it hits the edges (for a dress with a stretchy back so the material will stretch with your body). take it off and sew around the edges.. Repeat this step for part 3 aswell

P.S Sorry i have no step by step pictures to help as I never thought of doing it at the time..

Here is the before and after :)

DIY: Glitter Clutch

Image

What you need:

  • Mod Podge
  • Glitter (any colour you desire .. I used fine purple glitter & chunky silver glitter)
  • An old clutch or wallet or bag (whatever you prefer and want to glam up)
  • Paint brush or Sponge
  • a bowl
  • newspaper or something to put it on

How to:

  1. Put mod podge & glitter in a bowl ( there is no particular measurements bt however much mod podge you use put about the same about of glitter or more in.. use the bottom of bowl as a measurement.. so half the bottom of the bowl is mod podge and the other half is glitter) .. then mix it all together.
  2. Get your old clutch and paint a layer of the mixture on.. do not worry about if it stays white as when it dries you will see the glitter as the mod podge glue dries clear. P.S you may have to do a couple of layers (once each layer has dried) to cover the clutch so you don’t see the original colour/clutch.
  3. Once Dried.. and have put the mixture all over the clutch where you want it .. You have finished your glitter clutch :D and can go out on the town with it ;)

Below are a few pics of my formal and the glitter clutch I made, simple yet effective and doesn’t look tacky (I even got complimented a lot that night and asked where i got it from, they’re were surprised when i told them i did it myself)

P.S I’m not wearing heels as I did not want to be taller than my bf (thats why i look really short.. i swear i’m not that short)

Let me know how you went :D
