How To Tuesday: Damsel in Distressed Denim

destroyed denimIt seems counterintuitive to want to wear something that looks like it’s been handed down– for several generations, but destroyed denim came back onto the fashion scene several seasons ago and it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere.  I especially like it for the warmer months as if those extra holes are going to provide any extra ventilation in prevention of the dreaded “swamp ass.”  My parents are always confused when I wear a pair of shredded jeans around them… even more so when they find out how much I shelled out for them.  So, if you are anything like Dick and Georgia and want to achieve the look of distressed denim without distressing your bank account, I have the tricks to DIY destroyed denim.  You can also apply all of these techniques to denim cut off shorts (like the ones I taught you how to make last spring here).

How To Tuesday: Hop, Hop, Hop.

lace bunny earsBefore my nickname was “Turtle” it was Kiki B- B first standing for Bendel, later for bunny.  Not sure if the second iteration has more to do with me actually looking like a rabbit or my proclivity for falling down hypothetical rabbit holes.  In any case, I once required guests at my birthday party to parade around downtown in darling little bunny ears.  Birthdays are great excuses for props… as are brunches.  And wouldn’t you know, Easter is coming up and that’s prime brunching time.  What better way to add a little fun to your Easter brunch than with some stylish lace bunny ears for you and your guests?

Pro tip: You can also create lace cat ears with the same technique (which I made for my special video guest, Bud).

How To Tuesday: Milking It
Written by: WhyDid | Beauty Buzz,How To Tuesday

celebrity braidBecause there is absolutely no point in blowing out your locks during rain shower season (as my hair in this video can attest), it’s best to have a fallback updo that’s both stylish and easy to do when in an early morning rush.  The ultimate way to fight frizz beyond a buzz cut or toxic Brazilian potions basically comes down to braiding.  We’ve already learned how to French braid and fishtail braid (twice), so in order to take it to the next level, today I’ll teach you how to emulate farmhands and famous twins with the “milk maid braid.”  (**Extra credit points for incorporating a fishtail into this style).

How To Tuesday: But First, Let Me Take a Selfie

how to take a selfie

Once “selfie” was actually included in the Oxford dictionary (though spellcheck still does not recognize it), I figured it was a topic that was well worth addressing in a long overdue (greatly anticipated) episode of How To Tuesday.  Though our newsfeeds are swamped with narcissistic snapshots of mugs of friends, acquaintances, and Victoria’s Secret models, it seems that some of you are still not quite clear as to what constitutes an actual selfie.  First of all, it’s a photograph of YOU taken by YOU.  While posting a photograph of yourself taken by someone else is still just as self indulgent as a selfie, it does not classify as one.  And because I know you’re going to have a super good hair day soon and need to document it, let’s break down the best and most flattering ways to capture your pretty little pout with the “Do’s” and “Don’t's” of taking a perfect selfie.

How To Tuesday: Power Clash Like a Pro
Written by: WhyDid | How To Tuesday

And finally spring has sprung.  The weather’s warmed up and it’s time to do a little bit of rearranging of our closets.  Now, before you get all kinds of crazy trashing everything in your armoire, take a moment to consider taking part in the power clashing trend of spring.  What’s power clashing, you ask?  Well, instead of sticking with the stigma that you can’t wear two patterns at once, embrace bold prints and double down.  There are a few rules though (always rules), so check out the video below to keep you on the right track.
