Trend Report: Sunglasses

With SUMMER quickly on its way I wanted to compile a list of sunglasses falling into every price range. After all, what's summer without sunglasses?! I looked at tons of websites, collected so many pictures, and found options for every price range so I hope you enjoy this because it took forever. These were more of a list of glasses I found to be cute and tied into current trends rather than something that tied into runway looks like how I usually do things. 

If you want to purchase any of the sunglasses below, click the corresponding number in the caption of the collage and it will direct you to the page.

I am LIVING for the Prabal Gurung glasses in the last collage (#8)! Aren't they crazy beautiful!?

What are some sunglasses you've purchased lately? Are there any trends you're loving at the moment? Leave a comment

P.S. Don't forget to wear your sunscreen!

Trend Report: White

White has been my favorite color for awhile but lately I've been getting much more into it. My entire room is white but now I'm working towards obtaining more white clothes and hoping to be able to easily make an outfit any day I want completely based on white. It's quite a goal but I think I can do it. 

But besides my neurotic white clothing craving, white has been showing up on runways in the form of clothing and makeup. I put together this blog post to show off the trend of white and to give inspiration for outfits anybody can assemble. This trend could easily have been foreseen from the monochrome trend that's still happening but it's taken on a life of its own.

Look What I Made

First off, I'm sorry about being gone for so long. There was so much school to attend to and I wasn't feeling inspired by my clothes anymore so with those combined, I just didn't ever have time or feel like blogging.

With that being said, recently I was feeling inspired to make something like I used to. I'm one of those people that gets more inspiration from the textiles above anything else. I went to Walmart because I didn't want to spend a lot on something that may or may not turn out and I didn't have a clear direction for it. I went through their selection and was bored by everything but clear vinyl and white tulle (that was way too shiny and looked cheap). So I got 4 yards of vinyl! 2 of them were even half off.

I downloaded the Pete pattern from Burdastyle and it's a free pattern so feel free to download it. I use it every time when I do something that can be based off a shirt pattern. It just makes everything so much easier.

So after a couple hours of measuring, cutting, & sewing, it was done!

It's shorter in the front than in the back and opens in the front, like a vest

I really enjoyed working with vinyl, it was my first time and somehow I always decide to work with complicated fabrics but this tutorial really helped so if you're not familiar with sewing vinyl, have a look.

Have you made anything out of vinyl? Have you made anything recently? What'd you think? Leave a comment.
