How To: Perfectly Distress a Pair of Jeans

There’s something about distressed denim that I’m in love with. Perhaps, it’s the way each fray and rip wears in perfectly to the contours of my legs with each wear? The fact they already have that broken in feel and I don’t have to do squats to make them stretch a bit? Ladies, I know you know what I’m talking about. Or they are just simply effortless and chic.

I stumbled across this amazing, detailed tutorial on the Free People blog, BLDG 25, showing you how to perfectly distress a pair of jeans. It really doesn’t take any time at all to create a truly unique pair of jeans. Plus, you only need a few tools: a sharp razor blade (be careful!), card stock, scissors, sandpaper and a dremel, which is optional. (more…)

Note to Self: Put On Your Big Girl Panties.

Dear ladies (and some European men):

Pay attention. Recall your routine as you prepare for a typical day. Your hair, face, outfit, shoes and accessories are all on point. There’s one thing you forgot. It may seem petty, and maybe you didn’t know or maybe you thought no one would notice, but guess what…we noticed. We, the world behind you, are staring…talking about “it.” “It” is the dreaded VPL: Visible Panty Line. (more…)

How To: Upside Down French Braid Bun!

Lately I’ve been researching hairstyles for an upcoming wedding I have to attend. My dress is somewhat busy so I wanted to do something sleek like a sock bun. When I saw this tutorial I was instantly drawn in…and I’m kind of obsessed.

As stated numerous times, I wasn’t blessed with the natural skill of creating pretty hairstyles. The only thing I can do is throw my hair into a high ponytail or sock bun. Luckily for me, my sister has that natural ability and after seeing this tutorial I’m going to be her newest client. Like most girls, I’m loving sock buns because they are super easy and instantly transform your entire look. This hair tutorial by Luxy Hair kicks it up a notch and adds in an upside down french braid.

I’m so glad I found the Luxy Hair YouTube channel because these girls are so talented and have amazing, easy-to-follow tutorials. Sisters, Mimi and Leyla, started Luxy Hair after Mimi had a bad experience with hair extensions. Check out their site for premium Luxy Clip-In Hair Extensions!

As it has been said from time and time again, “Give a girl the right pair of shoes and she will conquer the world.” With these things in mind, here are five classic shoe styles that help every girl organize a fully functional shoedrobe. These aren’t called classics for reason. These are staples pieces that that transcend the latest trend. (more…)
