VIDEO: Sequin Embellished Sweatshirts

Screen Shot 2014-09-09 at 7.53.44 AMSo nice I had to do it twice!! Some of you may remember a post the sequin embellished sweater post I did around this time last year, no?! Well when my fashion lovin’/ YouTube channel havin’ friend Lindsay Albanese (of Lindsay’s Latest) suggested we collab on a few sweater videos for our channels, I just had to do this glitzy upcycled project in video form.  Click here to see the fun little video! Stay to the end of a link to the sweatshirt makeover we did for her channel. We’re soooooooo ready for Fall, even though the weather in LA is still letting us know it’s Summer.

#NYFW: Miss Kris’ Instaglammers To Follow

Miss Kris NYFW Instagrams To Follow

It’s here! Say hello to New York Fashion Week! If you follow any fashion blogger or designer on social media then you already knew that. Normally this time of year I’d be packing my bags and heading from LA to NYC for a week jam-packed of fashionable and fun events, but unfortunately this year I’ll be sitting out the festivities. WHAT?!?!? I KNOOOOOOW! Trust me… I’m sad. This is the first year since 2009 (when I was an overworked/ underpaid fashion PR assistant)  that I haven’t attended the September shows. Other work commitments have kept me here on the West Coast. I’ve come to terms with the fact that I’ll be missing out and have devised a well thought out list of Instaglammers to follow during #NYFW in order to ease our fears of missing out (FOMO). Below is a list to heavy hitters that are sure to have the Fashion Week scoop. Follow them for a good time!

A Hot Pop Of Color

Miss Kris EliquoiiHere we are post Labor Day weekend and one step closer to Fall. Even though it’s still fairly warm here in LA (read: SOOOOO HOT!), the wardrobe transition has begun. I’m getting excited for Fall and all the new pieces available from our favorite designers and brands. The second I laid eyes on this black and white flouncy shirt from Eloquii i just knew it would be one of my Fall favorites. It’s so Miss Kris, right?! Look at that ruffle! I love the black and white trend, but to add a pop of color I pair the skirt with these hot pink Jeffrey Campbell I purchased from Crossroads Trading. Gotta love a good find! Is anyone else as excited for the wardrobe transition as I am?!

VIDEO: Stackable Glassware DIY

Miss Kris DIY Glassware Cake Stand I love glassware!! I’m always on the hunt for new pieces. I find them at the kitchen supply stores, the dollar stores and even love finding vintage glass pieces at the flea markets or thrift stores. That rosy colored glass (depression glass as they call it) is always a unique find. I life alone so obviously there’s not need for me to be collecting all this glassware. Thankfully I’m crafty and can create anything with a little E6000.

You can transform glassware some pretty cool decor pieces bu just using a little glue to stack them into layers. A cake stand, a jewelry organizer or a pretty planter with just glass and glue. All the fun DIY details are here in this little video.



Thanks so much to the fab ladies at The Girls With Glasses Show for helping me with this project!! She more of their videos here.

Quotable: Don’t Quit

Miss Kris Dont Quit Your Day Dream 2 Pinterst Quote

Sometimes we all need a little inspirational pick me up …especially on a Monday. Full disclosure, this post is probably more for me than anyone else. For whatever reason last week was a beast. All my technologies were on the fritz at the same time (iPhone, iPad, iComputer, iTV, iCoffeeMachine, etc…) and collectively we as humans seemed to be dealing with so much unrest and turmoil. For me it was definitely one of those weeks of refection, laced with a healthy dose of self-doubt. Any entrepreneur knows exactly what I’m talking about. What am I doing here? Why is this not working? What more should I be doing? Blah! Blah! Blah! Sometimes those voices of doubt can be so loud, but it’s important to take a moment to reset. Any dream worth having is a dream worth fighting for. Nothing comes easily and there will always be moments of uncertainty, but it’s important to never give up. In my best Tim Gunn voice, “make it work!”

Keep going, y’all. Happy Monday! xo
