We commenced on a serious Witch hat makeover! First thing cut off the stringy green hair...BTW I've seen these hats at Walmart..they still make them.

Next...a little shopping of course! Emily went to Michaels and scored in finding some

sparkly orange decor for the hat..a buck each! Then at hobby lobby she found the awesome black and siver feathered boa.
Emily wrapped the boa twice around the brim of the hat and hot glued it in places to keep it sturdy.

Then she took white tulle and tied a big huge bow in the front again securing it with hot glue...what did we ever use before hot glue??!! and then she hit glued Mr. Sparkly skeleton head in the center of the bow.

First we thought about hot glueing the glitter balls around the base of the hat but you couldn't see them so Emily came up with a great add them all around the pointy part of the hat. They are so light weight they stayed on perfectly! Emily spayed hat with glue and sprinkled glitter all around too!

Fashion Friday - A New Purse

Friday, October 24, 2014

Are you like me when trying to find a new purse?
#1. I don't want to pay a lot of money...sorry "coach" none of those for me
#2. I dont want a huge honkin purse that could fit the kitchen sink in it...seriously have you seen the sizes of purses out there these days??
#3. I want it to be light weight because it kills my back and shoulder to lug around a heavy bag.
#4. I want the inside to be light in color instead of a dark hole where I can't find things
#5. I want it to be stylish and I want it to pretty much go with almost everything!
Is that too much to ask??? Well....I found one!

While visiting my mom we decided to do a little shopping and went to Charming Charlie's! If you are not familiar with this store it is a fun accessories store that sells all kinds of purses, jewelry, scarves, shoes and some clothing items...the cool thing about this shop is that everything in the store is displayed and organized by color!!! I first heard of this shop while living in Texas and LOOVED it! Here is the inside of my and white striped lining so cute!

So happy with My new $39.00 purse...someone even asked me if it was a Kate Spade purse!

Fashion Friday - blue suede shoesI have always loved colorful shoes! I remember when I was in elememtary school and my mom bought me some sneakers...I got two was yellow and one was pink! Loved them!
My mom just reminded me of another story that began my affinity for colorful shoes....I was only 18 mos old and Santa Claus brought a pair of patent leather red shoes! When I opened the box I grabbed them and held them up to my heart and exclaimed "OH MY PITTY WED SHOES" and that began my love affair with colorful shoe!
