DIY embellished bling embroidered skirt

What you’ll need:

1) an old skirt. I used an old Express skirt made of polyurethane, I thought the contrast with the embroidered embellishments would pair nicely.

2) fabric glue

3) Iron on embroidered applique

4) Scissors

5) an iron

6) an old shirt you don’t mind ruining

Directions:

Step 1) Cut the iron on embroidered applique into the pattern of your choice and lay it out on your skirt

Step 2) Use the fabric glue and dab lightly on the back of your applique (I just put a little dot on the back, in the center of each large circle). The glue is just for you to position your iron on applique onto your skirt so that it will stay in place when you iron it on

Step 3) Apply your iron on applique with the little dots of glue on the back, I would glue a few circles, place it on my skirt, then continue gluing the rest of the circles. Proceed until you are satisfied with your pattern.

Step 4) Place the old shirt on top of the appliques and iron (hold iron for at least 5 seconds), this step took me the longest. I found I had to go over each applique multiple times to get it to adhere firmly. DO NOT put the iron directly on your skirt if you’te using polyurethane–it is usually pretty heat labile, so you don’t want to ruin all your hard work! If you want to add some bling on your skirt, just use the fabric glue, it holds well.

Mastering The 90’s Bra Over Shirt Trend Like a Boss

The 90’s are coming back at us full swing! I am super excited about this because I have been wearing over the knee socks like a freak since elementary school and now everybody else is as well!

Anyway, here’s how to master the bra over shirt trend like a boss

1) Do not actually wear your bra on the outside. HAHAHHAHAA. Duhhhh….I just had to include this for shits and giggles. A bralette, like the hellurrr <$5 one I’m wearing above, is an excellent choice. Or, be even more interesting and wear laced, caged, velvet, leather, etc. type of bralettes.

2) You can throw a plain tight slightly cropped tee beneath the bralette and be a basic bitch, or you can be a boss like me and wear a fabulously fascinating blouse like the one I am wearing above. Bell sleeved, embellished, structured shoulder, peplum, embroidered, the more bells and whistles, the merrier.

3) Throw on a waist belt to accentuate your waist. I have a boyish figure so adding little accents like this really polish my outfit and make me look more feminine. But a waist belt is really flattering on any body type!

Get my look:

Black bralette | $4.68

White blouse (similar) | $17.48 

White lace shorts (similar) | $12.22 

 Nude stockings (2 pack) | $10.27
