I am so in love with the new Hayworth Collection from Warby Parker! For any one not familiar with them,  Warby Parker makes beautiful vintage inspired glasses for under $150 and for every pair you buy, the donate a pair to someone in need. Not only that, but they make the shopping experience so easy with at home try-ons! My friend, Tymn, has been using them for years and is always sporting sassy new eyewear. They are truly at the forefront on revolutionizing the eyewear industry

The Hayworth Collection is inspired by the private eyes and femme fatals of film noir. I am so excited about this collection, specifically the Neville Frames (shown above on this handsome man), inspired by Roy Orbison. I look that them and I think, I could go with a 40′s thing for a while. Maybe some retro curls and super cute dresses. Will it happen? Maybe the dress up part will last a few days, but I will have these frames.

DIY: Emerald Bow Bracelet

So, I’m a copy cat. I’m one of those people that will walk around a store and refuse to buy something if I think I can make it. 99% of the time, I don’t, but this is one of the few times I have attempted to make something I wanted. I saw this amazing emerald suede bow bracelet via Pantone and I wanted it. Although, suede really isn’t my thing, so I opted for an emerald velvet ribbon.

What you’ll need: Ribbon/ Hook and eye/ Glue Gun

Step One: Cut your ribbon into four pieces. Cut one length the size of your wrist. Then a 4″ strip, a 3″ strip and a 1.5″ strip.

Step Two: Glue the ends of the 4″ strip together. making sure they are centered and press down in the middle. Do the same for the 3″ strip.

Step Three: Glue the 3″ strip on top of the 4″ and press together.

Step Four: Wrap the smallest piece around the center and glue down. Now you have your bow.

Step Five: Secure the hook between the center of the bow and the wrist piece. Glue down.

Step Six: Glue the hook to the other end of the wrist piece. You might have to remeasure to give allowance for the hook, depending on how tight you want the bracelet.

When you hook them together, you have a neat little velvet bow bracelet. I love it. Although, I am a little biased, because I made it. And it falls perfectly on my Snow White tattoo, so it looks like a cute little frame. Love!

Stripes

I don’t know if you this, but I really like stripes. Like, a lot. One of the biggest challenges I have with stripes, is finding a way to wear it without them being overwhelming. My solution is to cover up with a sweater, but I really liked the sleeves of this dress, so I opted for a super colorful belt. Counter-intuitive? Yes. But I really loved the way it looked.

My Wishlist

I thought I’d share a few things on my wish list this year. Why? Just because. I am totally that person who will fixate on certain things and these are a few of the many I’ve been fixated on over the past month or two.

Diamond Necklace from It’s Called Jewelry/ House of Harlow 1960 Cary Sunglasses/ Hello Red Champ Pullover/Julep Nail Polish in Amber Suede Matte/ Pantone Color of the Year Mug in Emerald (Warm Grey shown)/ Nars Duo Eyeshadow in All About Eve/ Honeydew Chevron Stripe Sock/  Madewell Striped Songbird Dress/ Mr. Zogs Sex Wax Candle in Coconut

 

Oxford Comma

I have had my eye out for a good pair of oxfords lately. I bought a cheap pair not to long ago and I love them, though the quality is a little dicey. I really like these oxfords from B.P, they are simple and the color is so neutral you could wear it with black or brown.

I have also been crushing hard on these velvet jeans from J. Crew. I never quite for into the printed/bright/waxed denim thing, I don’t even do cords, but there is something about these that I just adore! The cut look fabulous, I haven’t tried them on, but why would I do that to myself? I’m not a sadist.
