These are some items that have been on my mind lately. All of them neutrals— some being good foundation pieces like a comfortable maxi or jumpsuit, or the always classic panama hat— while others work well as statement pieces that can be layered or worn alone. While I own some of these and look forward to wearing them through spring, some others are on my wishlist (Rachel Zoe’s pin clasp bracelet, in particular). What are some things on your must-wear list?
Start with a pink base coat. Paint two coats of white on a few 1″ long pieces of tape and let dry.
Cut small strips from the painted white tape.
On the thumb, place three vertical strips of tape on the nail and trim. Place two horizontal pieces on after and trim to size. Do the same thing for the rest of the nails, but only use two vertical and two horizontal pieces (because they’re smaller than the thumbnail.)
This week’s DIY project was inspired by the CC Skye Lucky Horn Rosary Bracelet. I saw it on Shopbop and contemplated buying it but then thought, why don’t I just make it? I couldn’t find a gold horn that I liked so I went with a pretty pendant. And I’m not sure what kind of string they used, but I went with an elastic so it would have more movement (and also so I wouldn’t have to worry about doing the clasp every time I wanted to wear it— it just easily slips on and off, with the clasp just being a decoration).
Supplies: black beads, pendant (I used a piece from a pair of earrings), 4 jump rings, lobster clasp, 0.5mm clear elastic
Attach your pendant to a jump ring. Tie the elastic onto the jump ring and seal with a drop of superglue (to keep the knot from coming undone).
String about 3″ worth of beads onto the elastic and then string on a jump ring (don’t tie it on). This 3″ will be what’s hanging down, so you may adjust to suit your needs.
Add more beads until the bracelet is the size you want. Not counting the first 3″ that dangle down, the bracelet should fit close around your wrist. Attach the lobster clasp to a jump ring then tie the jump ring onto the end of the bracelet, pulling a bit tight. Put a drop of super glue on the knot and let dry.
I’d love to see your DIY projects! If you make this, take a picture and tag it with #SISDIY to share!
