Blogger Style: NYFW Fall 2018

NYFW has come and gone, though the beautiful street style looks continue to grace my Instagram feed, and I am loving it! I don't know how these bloggers do it...running from show to show, and add to that the parties, sponsor events, fittings, and meetings. Yet they still have time to churn out content for readers as well. Anyone who thinks blogging isn't a job knows absolutely nothing about blogging! These ladies are so inspiring, not just with their killer style, but with their self-made and much earned successes. Here are just a few of my faves and a snippet of the top looks from the concrete runway. Enjoy!





Aimee Song from Song of Style is my all-time fave. She has the best fashion week videos, and as you can see, is just so cool. I love that her style is always inspirational yet relatable. Song incorporates unique trends and top brands but styles them in a way that isn't too out there. She often has the most exquisite accessory details, as you can also see above, and i…

DIY Fashion Print Wall Art for Girl's Room


I often use prints from art books and calendars to create DIY wall art that looks expensive but is actually very affordable. I've been redoing my daughters' room this summer from shabby chic to something a little more modern. As my oldest daughter inches towards her tween years, she is becoming more and more obsessed with fashion. When I saw this Barbie calendar at a home decor shop, I snatched it right up to turn it into matching fashion prints for her walk-in closet. The project took less than an hour and cost me a total of $15.00. To make your own prints simply follow the instructions below and refer to the supply list.

Supplies Needed:
  • four 8" by 10" picture frames
  • one art or photo print calendar
  • scissors and a pencil


Tip: Pick inexpensive frames. I got mine for a few dollars a piece. Sometimes it's best to invest in something that will last a long time. However, whenever you're purchasing something that isn't going to get daily wear (other than hanging on a wall), it isn't necessary to pay more for durability.

Instructions:

Start by taking the insert or mat out of the frame. Use that as a quick guide to trace over the images you've picked then cut each one out.






Clean the inside glass on the picture frame before placing the print inside the frame. Pick a frame in which the back rest lays flat behind the outer frame so the picture will hang perfectly flat against the wall.


You can use many different prints to achieve this low-cost artwork in other rooms of your home. Browse the clearance books at Barnes & Noble for large art books. I turned a $15.00 Gustav Klimt book into professional, expensive-looking framed prints, and in my bedroom I hung prints from an Alexander McQueen calendar I got at the Savage Beauty exhibit at the Met in New York. With this simple DIY project, you can add beautiful art prints to your home decor for under $20.00.
