Spruce Up Your Denim

Spring is here.. Well it feels like it in some places more than others.. Its time to for spring cleaning and putting away those winter clothes. As much as I want a new spring/summer wardrobe that is not going to happen, so I was inspired to spruce up my denim shorts.

I happen to have a couple of old shirts made out of lace so I decided to go with this fabric but of course you can use anything you’d like.. Lace is hot right now as well as floral print.

Any lace shirt can be cut up for lace pockets on a pair of denim shorts.

Start by cutting a larger piece of fabric from the shirt, table cloth, or whatever fabric you are using. Make sure it is larger than the pocket so you can size correctly. Place this fabric on top of the pocket you will be covering, hold with push pins. Cut by tracing the size. Stitch the lace right onto the outer pocket with needle and thread. Now you have yourself a new pair of shorts to ROC!

Love the simplicity and feminine touch that the lace adds to these light washed denim shorts.

Fierce skulls!

Skulls are used in so many forms of fashion these days, adorned on clothing, jewelry, bags, home decor, etc. I have always liked the bad girl look of skull and cross bones, but I stopped in my tracks and my jaw literally dropped when I saw this amazing store front display in Barcelona, Spain.

It is larger than life, sparkles very bright, and drew me in! I couldn’t even get past this amazing piece to look at clothing because I was so captivated. Bad ass is all I could say as I snapped away with my camera. I started thinking of all the ways I could use this if it were mine. Maybe ridiculous but imagine a chandelier in a dark but fabulous entry way.. Barcelona has become one of my favorite cities, so it was no surprise that their designer shopping district would be so on point and incredible.

I am going to be wearing my gold skull and crossbones midi ring today thinking about future fashion statements that I look forward to making with fierce skulls!
