Met Gala 2013 – Best & Worst Dressed

IMO,  no one hit  ‘Style’ on its proverbial head this year.  In fact i spend most of the time horrified. i believe they all missed the memo stating that standing out isn’t necessarily the same as standing out, if you know what i mean.

Anyway, here are my picks for best dressed…

I think this is the best i have ever seen Kristen look, she may have actually put some effort in to this one.

This one will get mixed reviews i’m sure, but i like it.  Her hair and make up work perfectly to let the dress do all the talking.

Giselle rocks out in this metal mini

Unsure how i feel about this one, i love the hair and the edgy look Anne is channeling, it’s just the feathered sleeves that are throwing me…

I LOVE SJP as much as the next gal but i believe this headpiece to be hideous.

Pink overload..

I’m sure you have all seen this pic by now. Talk about your matchy matchy. A bit of a neckline may have helped break this up a little.

Where to begin? Was this a costume party and i wasn’t aware?

Mads has stepped into a time warp and thinks it the 80’s again.

Kelly Osborne is said to be an authority on fashion these days… um…

Well, that’s everyone  i believed to be noteworthy this year. Each for their own reasons.

 In a way celebs are like  catwalk models, their outfits are overly elaborate to expose the style of the season, but are not wearable for us normal humans.  Safe to say, punk is in, but lets tone it down a little, yeah?

DIY Monday – Floral Pockets

So i know these have been around all season but here we are in the height of summer and i still haven’t found a pair i love! So I’ve decided its time to do it myself.

Step 1. First thing’s first, hit your nearest oppie and pick up a pair of jeans. If you like hipsters, try for a brand name (as i have with ‘Sportsgirl’) or if you like high waisted go straight for the Levi’s, they’ll never let you down.

Step 2. Cut them – The best way i find to cut them is to put them on inside out and mark the spot with some fabric chalk (normal chalk works too) leaving them a tiny bit longer at the back to allow for your bum. Try them on again to make sure they are perfect. After they are exactly how you like, give them a wash to loosen up the threads at the bottom for that authentic look.

Step 3. Grab the floral fabric you love (old hankies are great for this as you need little fabric and are super cheap) and place it over a back pocket, tracing right around the edge. Cut right along the line making sure the floral pocket fits over the denim pocket exactly.

Step 4. Hand stitch the fabric on with a colour that blends into your floral. Note: I like to dab a little glue on each corner beforehand to hold the fabric in place as I sew.

And there you are! The sewing part is a little tedious but completely worth the finished product.
