LACMA Gets Dressed Up: Diane Von Furstenberg Exhibit

lacma5

Fashionista I am not, but even I am familiar with Diane Von Furstenberg’s iconic wrap dress.

My dear friend I was visiting had been to the Journey of a Dress exhibit at the LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art) and thought I would enjoy it – she was right! The exhibit celebrates the 40th anniversary of Von Furstenberg’s brand.

DIY Autumn Bloom Belt

I came across this awesome tutorial on I Am Momma – Hear Me Roar and wanted to pass it on!

Cheri (aka Momma) has a lot of creative tutorials for DIY projects – a few of which are now on my task list!

When I came across her Autumn Bloom Belt, I knew I wanted to give it a shot.

Here is hers:

And here is mine:

Instead of buying 1/8 of a yard for each felt color, I bought felt squares for 35 cents each. That plus the ribbon set me back about a total of $3.00 and took about 30 minutes.

(I could have made 2 belts out of the 4 felt squares and spool of grosgrain black ribbon I purchased. In fact, it was so easy I think I will make one for a friend!)

Cheri gives a great photo tutorial. Check it out here:

Window Shop Wednesday with The Katie Chronicles


It’s link up Wednesday again with The Katie Chronicles, and today we’re window shopping at Old Navy! Since the 4th of July is upon us, I’m picking out my favorite picks for this weekend’s patriotic celebrations!!

Hello Lady Liberty! I love this fun, modern graphic tee. Would be cute with plain old jeans, or a fun red skirt.


I can’t get enough of polka dots! The nautical/Americana red, white and blue colors are right up my alley! This bathing suit would be perfect for a day of tubing on the lake!Woven sandal flats. Yes please! I love shoes like this for running around town, going on a walk or picking blueberries (which I hope to be doing this weekend).

This simple striped tank is very cute. I would probably use this as a bathing suit cover up for the cute bathing suit above.

And, finally, a hoodie. Everybody needs a nice hoodie for watching 4th of July fireworks and roasting s’mores.

Hmmm, and the best part about Old Navy is things are always on sale!

Happy Window Shopping! : )
