Had SO much fun this morning on the TODAY show with Karen Tack from Hello Cupcake. Her amazing confectionery creations were a huge hit! If you didn’t see the segment, check it out above.

re-Work Wednesday: DIY Denim

Denim

Whether you still have flares or bell bottoms in your closet from the 70′s or borrowing your boyfriend’s old baggy jeans never appealed to you, here are some new ways to re-work your denim this Wednesday (or weekend!)

Casual Covers
Salvage a pocket from an old jean jacket to protect your Blackberry or iPhone in your purse or beach tote.  You can even get creative and give your e-reader a low key look by sewing together small scraps (or affixing fabric on top of standard black cases).

Denim Decor
The casual comfort we love to wear also works this season inside.  Throw pillows, summer slippers and even a great beach blanket can be fashioned from large pieces, while leftover pockets can make picture perfect hanging photo frames, as seen above.

Swimsuit Cover-ups Not Just for the Beach

re-Work Wednesday: Belts

Belt It Out

In my quest to help women maximize their wardrobes through creative styling and DIY, this week I wanted to bring up belts.  Chances are you have a few you don’t wear so why not wrap them around shoes or turn a skinny belt into a bracelet?  You can even give new life to a clutch with a few simple stitches, or if you really want to push the envelope, check out the above shot from the L.A.M.B runway show.

Some Hot Studs

Studs

I love new takes on old favorites!  Simple stud earrings are suddenly feeling fresh thanks to cute colors and design details.  Jessica Alba was recently spotted in a pair of Melissa Joy Manning’s golden studs (melissajoymanning.com) but you can also add a touch of glitz to your ensemble by seeking out colors that work with your complexion.  While warm-skinned Alba looks gorgeous in gold, girls with cooler skin tones might like to scoop up jewelled studs in topaz, ruby or amethyst.
