5 minute DIY and Headbands

Hey guys =D

I saw a picture of Sylvia (from Lipgloss & Black) the other day and looooved her headband!
I feel like I am kind of stalking those two right now XD
But you just have to love their style <3

anyway, I thought I could pull off a headband look myself and anyway life is too short to look boring, so here is what I looked like saturday, when I went fabric shopping (that was before the idea with destashing hit me ^^)

the yellowish skin tone and the colors in general look a bit off, I had the worst light when taking the pictures and obviously I am no pro in editing them XD

the headband was originally a scarf I borrowed from my dear granny ^^

Anyhow, I only got one scarf like this, and it isn't even mine! There had to be other ways to get a fashionable headband statement right?

so here is what I came up with yesterday night:

braided headbands from fabric scraps, yeah ^^

I made a thick and a thin one, but I don't think they go really great with my hair, so I sell/swap them on KleiderKreisel <- German side, If you need translating, just write me a comment ;-)

They are so easy and fast done, you could easily make one yourself and you get rid off some of your fabric scraps too =D

and last but not least, A quick DIY something (it isn't really worth mentioning it is so easy...)

I saw a guy the other day, probably someone from fashionweek ^^
wearing a thin chain several times wound around his right boot and it looked fabulous!

it took me 5 minutes to remake and I already had all the supplies I needed:

just a long (leftover) chain, I had lying around, a jump ring and some sort of jewelry clasp will do. Also a chain cutter/ plier thingy is quite handy since you can easily break your nails when prying open those nasty jump rings -.-
and tadaaaa...finished

just be carefull that your chain length is enough to measure several times around your bootleg.
If you don't like ankle boots, you can make this chainklet by Jenna C. It looks great too!

woah...remember this post

It's more than a year ago and so much stuff happened o.Ô
enough happened that I never continued my upcycling after the second piece ^^
Oh well, but the thing is, I still have the problem with my two too full closets! Not to mentioned my growing fabric stash...Oh dear

 Oh how I love that kitty :3

So what to do with two closets and three big and heavy containers full of juicy fabrics?...

Do I really have to ask ;-)

I am going to do fantastic things of course!

but other, than last year I won't make any promise or set myself a time limit to how often I do these reconstructions! It didn't work well last time, so I won't try it again.

I did a couple of things I somehow never got around to post, but hopefully that will change soon! The weather will be nice (can't wait for spring and the first sunbeams!!!) and than I will probably be more motivated to take some pictures.

Oh and I get a (real!) dress form!!! where I can change the sizes and everything =D
It will arrive mid february I guess, but I can't stop anticipating the mail man everytime the dorrbell rings XD

Soooo, maybe you'll here soon from me, but first I have to finish a dress I started to make my mum ;-)

long overdue hairpost

Maybe it's because of the season or the bad weather, but I see those hairtimelines spring up all over Blogworld...

Originally I only wanted to comment on L&B recent Blogpost. Where Syl is unhappy with her recent hair style, but now see what happened o.Ô

here you go, my very own hair timeline

At the moment, I think my hair looks really bad, I got a hair cut at the weekend and the fringe/ bangs got cut way to short... I think I look a bit like a friar (first picture when you google it XD )

but what are wigs, hair accessories and hats for... eh?

edit: it's only a timeline of length considering the last two years, I had lots of different colors and hair styles over the time, but to cut my hair this short (summer 09) was the biggest decision yet ^^
