Selfie Sundays

Selfie Sunday, Sept. 22: Re-purposing Project Completed!

I am super stoked to say that I finished my project of re-purposing my statement necklace. Twice it had snapped in the middle, but I loved it so much I couldn’t let it go completely!

So… I took apart the necklace until I had just the beads. Then, I used chains I already had to create these two beauties down below!!

I can’t wait to show you outfits modelling these two new handmade pieces. And, since I have leftover beads, you could very well be seeing more re-purposed pieces here on Zeebstyle!

Announcement: Now that the semester is in full swing, I am going to cut down to only one post per week minimum rather than two. It’ll come out on either Friday or Sunday so that I can keep “Fashion Fridays” and “Selfie Sundays.”

Fashion Friday, Aug. 2: Shine

It’s the post you’ve been waiting for… shine! Shine is such a fun way to add dimension. Materials that catch the light are always a great way to draw the eyes. Metallics are also considered neutrals, meaning mixing different metals is both okay and encouraged for a sense of modernity. The earrings (below) I got from Marshall’s not too long ago has gold, rose, gold, and silver. I adore these statement earrings, especially when they catch the light!

Shine doesn’t have to be super shiny or sparkly. Studding and embellishment can add a subtle element of shine. My pale pink loafers (below) have faux pearls and studding which add dimension without drawing drastic amount of attention to them. If I’m wearing a loud top or jacket, a shoe like this that adds some interest without competing is a huge plus!

But shine doesn’t have to be limited to accessories! There are metallic treatments that are put on tops and bottoms to add some sheen. The top pictured below I tried on at Marshall’s. I would’ve modeled it for you. Unfortunately, it didn’t fit properly, nor did I have pants on. (I wore a dress to the store and had no pants in the dressing room that fit. C’est la vie.) This blog does not provide that kind of show! If it had fit, I certainly would’ve snagged this top! It’s a great example of mixing shine and texture!

Thank you so so much for stopping by! I hope this examples of using shine can provide some wardrobe inspiration for you! Feel free to leave a comment or shoot me a message – I love feedback!
