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!
