Get {Styled by Tori Spelling} + Giveaway!

September 3rd, 2012

It’s time to Bring on the Bling! I’m thrilled to present the incredible Boho and Glam lines from {Styled} by Tori Spelling on Boutique Cafe! First of all, I want to mention that I absolutely adore Tori Spelling and greatly admire her passion for her family, love of crafting and zest for being a momprenuer. I also enjoy her incredible sense of style (and the fact that she has a chicken as a family pet). Love her! That being said, I was eager to showcase {Styled} by Tori Spelling for our readers, and of course to try it out myself.

The idea behind {Styled} is that by using “simple steps to style”, anyone can quickly and easily put together gorgeous statement pieces of jewelry in just minutes. {Styled} by Tori Spelling offers 4 collections of components (Boho, Glitz, Noir and Glam) including necklace tops and bottoms, findings,connectors to finish your necklaces, even pendants to refine your look. The beautiful part is that NO TOOLS ARE REQUIRED, absolutely anyone can pull together the elements and create a gorgeous design you’ll be excited to wear and showoff.

I was sent a glorious box filled with components from the Boho and Glitz lines. There’s a certain thrill that comes from knowing you are going to create something new to dress up your style. I started playing around with the pieces and findings and realized how brilliant this system is, it’s so easy to do that you can’t get it wrong. If you’re personal style is simple you might opt for using a basic necklace top, bottom and connectors – if however you want to dress it up and inject your own flair you can literally keep adding to the piece to make it special and standout. There are no rules, you can use components from the {Styled} by Tori Spelling lines and even attach things you already own such as vintage brooches with their nifty connectors.

I loved the ease of crafting my own {Styled} by Tori Spelling jewelry. The Boho collection is very much for the free spirit who loves mixed metals, medallions and fresh colours. The Glam line incorporates beautiful metals in gold and bronze, highlighted by ivory, coral and sparkling rhinestones. Glam is very much about the metals and textures. I loved how both lines could intermingle with each other!

There’s nothing more girly than wanting to dress up your look with the perfect piece of statement jewelry, and there’s nothing more crafty than making it yourself! That’s what {Styled} by Tori Spelling allows you to do, and with countless combinations of components you can wear an original piece each day.

Day 5 – The ModKid Patty Young Ornament Tree!

December 16th, 2011

“Daria, Thanks so much for asking us to be a part of your special Christmas blog. We created a really awesome pink tree for our studio a couple of weeks ago and we have gotten so many questions as to how we made it that I thought this would be the perfect project to share. Since my assistant, Emalee, was the mastermind behind this fun and crafty project I will let her tell you—in her own words—how the tree came about. Enjoy the tutorial and several pictures I captured on assembly day. As you will see, we had lots of “helping hands” in the form of a group of local college students from the Department of Fashion Design and Merchandising.” :) Patty Young

Instructions by Emalee Grambo. Photography by Patty Young.

Our pink tree, while a fun experience, was definitely a group effort to put together. So find your friends and neighbors to help you put this beauty up.
For starters, you will need some sort of small round object for the tip top of your tree. Being a sewing studio, we had plenty of sewing embroidery hoops lying around and we chose one that was 4” in diameter. Anything similar to this will work great. Just be sure there is no chance whatever you choose can crack… the first item we used—a clear plastic plate—cracked when we tried to put the tree up. This tree ends up heavier than you think.

You will also need:
1 Hula Hoop (at least 3-feet wide)
Colored duct tape or spray paint to cover the Hula Hoop if you wish
Clear fishing line (a bit on the stronger side)
180 shatterproof ornaments in glittery pinks (or the color of your choice)
Clear tape and a hot glue gun to reinforce areas of your tree

We decided we wanted our tree to be about 10 feet tall with ornaments placed every 6.5”. So:

1. Mark your hula hoop and embroidery hoop with ten evenly spaced marks around the circumference.
2. Cut 10 strands of fishing line at 12 feet each.
3. Starting at one end, measure a foot and mark with a permanent marker. From this point measure every 6.5 inches and mark with a permanent marker. About a foot should remain at this other end as well. This will allow room to tie each strand to the top and bottom hoop. All 10 of your fishing line strands should be marked in this way.
4. Proceed to string your ornaments onto each strand and tie three knots at each mark you made. On 5 of the strands, leave the very last mark empty. On the other 5 strands, leave the second to last mark empty. These will be the “top” of the strands. This will keep the very top of the tree from getting too congested. If you have the space, spread each completed strand on your floor to keep it from tangling up with one another. (Trust me on this!)
5. Once you have all ten done, spread them out as best you can in a circle around the object you have for the tippy top of the tree.
6. Tie the top of each strand, alternating between strands with the last mark empty or the second to last mark empty, to each mark on your tippy top tree piece. From four evenly spaced marks on this tippy top piece string fishing line to create a loop to hang your tree.
7. Now this is where you will need all the helping hands you can find. Have each person grab two strands as you lift the center of your tree up. If you don’t recruit these lovely friends, you will be spending the majority of your afternoon untangling these ten strands and your pretty pink tree won’t be looking pretty anymore.
8. Once you have your tree hung, you can proceed to tie each end to your hula hoop where marked. We found it most helpful to place the hula hoop onto a flat surface at the level where we wanted our tree to fall and then tie each end to the hoop.




Day 4: Glamorous Stocking Tutorial with The Domestic Diva!

December 15th, 2011

Lisa’s Christmas Confessions:

Christmas Confession #1: I’ve never let my kids decorate MY tree. They can put their handmade ornaments on their smaller trees in their room. I know, I’m a bad mother.

Christmas Confession #2: Even though your Santa may wear a RED suit, mine doesn’t. I loathe RED. There is not a speck of RED (or Christmas Green) in my house during the holidays or any other time. My Santas have Gold, Cream, White, Silver, and Aqua robes…LOL!

Christmas Confession #3: I like getting Christmas cards with pictures of your adorable kids. Except the ones that include those annual summaries of their overachievements.

Wishing everyone a Very Merry Christmas! Lisa – The Domestic Diva’s Disasters Blog
