Style Drop: Biking Around

I love to bike ride. Although I seldom do its a fun way to exercise and get in the fresh air. So for all those who vowed to do more exercise as their New Year's resolution here is some practical (and not so practical) and fashionable ensembles to wear whether your on your way to NYFW or riding to the corner shop to get some milk.

Work of the Gods…The Valentino Gavarino Rockstud Shoe…and I know I'm a Few Years Late

Ok, so lets just all bask in the glory of the Valentino Gavarino Rockstud shoe. And yes, I am aware that these came into the sphere of bloggers and street style savants everywhere many a times ago.

Ok, so now thats done, can I just say how much I adore these shoe and want it to be apart of my life. But alas, a 17 year olds salary from her local kiosk will not suffice. So after being in denial for one two many months I went on the hunt for my own Valentino Rockstud dupe.

DIY Paper Tassel Garland

So my Year 12 formal (or Senior Prom, for those Americans out there) has come and gone but the memories are here to stay. On the day my friends all came over to my house before hand for 'Pre's', were we took photos, fangirled over each others dresses and basically got ready for the amazing night! 

So being my typical self, I wanted to make by backyard look really nice and pretty for the night. So essentially my vision for my backyard was to be covered in pastel paper tissue tassels and flowers, paper garlands and the like.

On my googling adventure I discovered that you can buy paper tassels from a very snazzy company called the "Confetti System". They sell them for $130 for 12…they were pretty but not worth the amount of clothes I could buy for that. So I hopped onto Youtube and discovered how I could make some myself. I used a video from Kin Community and from a few blogs to get a general idea of how to make them, most people used hot glue guns, but AINT NOBODY GOT TIME FOR DAT, so I developed my own method. So without further ado, this is how I made my Paper Tassels inspired by the Confetti System.
