Stuff I Made: DIY T-Shirt Scarf/ Necklace

Photo credit: Echoshirts.com

I was checking out one of my favorite blogs, More Design Please, when I happened upon this cute DIY project.  It’s completely No-Sew, and once I got the hang of it, took about ten seven minutes to finish.  I love DIY clothing, but am sometimes daunted by labor-intensive projects.  I also really loves scarves.  I did a quick inventory and I have around 20 in heavy rotation.  If you’re at all like me, this might be right up your alley!

Before you click the link for directions, just know that all you’ll need for this project is a T-shirt and scissors.  I made a couple of different ones with various t-shirt sizes.  I’d recommend a big shirt because you can get a larger scarf out of it.  Here are some photos of my project:

I made another  color, too:

Now that we’re finally getting some fall weather here in Florida, these scarves will get lots of exposure!  Have fun trying this DIY project!  Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great day! xx


Homeless or Hipster?

Handsome Chinese Beggar or Fall 2010?

The other day I was perusing the interwebs, looking for something cool and exciting to bring you guys.  I set out to do a post about clothes (’cause it’s been forever), and I stumbled on some disturbing photos (website NSFW).

What I found was so shocking, I had to warn everyone immediately.

There is a trend in full swing, people.  A dangerous and potentially harmful thing that could have women everywhere making decisions they will regret.  I’m talking about guys so hip, so trendy, that they look. . . FREAKING HOMELESS.

Don’t get me wrong, I love a beard as much as the next girl.  In fact, almost every guy I’ve dated has had perma-stubble of some kind.  In fact, The Boyfriend has a full on Lumberjack situation.  And I’m all for the Brawny Man thing that’s going on right now (Seriously, if I see one more hottie in Buffalo plaid this week I’m going to hop a plane for South Dakota with nothing but thongs in my carry-on). . .

But it’s getting out of hand.  How’s a girl to know if that shy, handsome guy hanging out at her local coffee shop isn’t really just a Schizophrenic who’s just trying not to die of hypothermia by soaking up the free heat? And guys, make sure that girl’s really got “Bedhead” when you meet her at the club, and not “Streethead” from panhandling all day, umkay?

Hot Bedhead Girl or Street Rat Sally?

You:  “Oh hey.  I really like your Ironic Beard!”

Hobo:  “It’s not ironic.  I can’t afford a razor ’cause I’m homeless.”

You:  “Oh snap.  Er. . .” 

The madness has got to stop.  It was cute a few years ago, when this kid in my Econ class had perfectly grungy-looking hair.  Now it’s just confusing.  I mean, that Econ Class Kid probably couldn’t afford shampoo and Hot Pockets, so he made a Sophie’s Choice- and I got to benefit by fantasizing that he was “deep.”  But we’re adults now.  If you can afford to buy purposely ratty jeans at Urban Outfitters, you can afford a comb.  Get it together, hipsters!

Are you confused by these hipsters, too?  Tell me all about it!  And, if you enjoyed this post, please “Like” it using the button below!  xoxo
