DIY Sweatshirt

February 8, 2017 — by Chelsey Bishoff

We are all about latest trends, but we’re also all about taking those trends and making it our own. Today we will show you how to take a plain ol’ sweatshirt and spice it up to create a whole new look.

What you’ll need:

-An old sweater and sweatshirt

-Scissors and a razor blade

Start by cutting around the neck of the shirt.

Take a white pencil and trace what you want your neckline to look like. We are cutting a deep V in ours.

Next, cut along the white line you drew.

Step one is done! Now off to step two. We are now going to cut slits in the shirt. Be intentional about where you choose to cut the holes. You don’t want to add too many.

Go in with a razor blade and gently take it across the fabric to create frays. Do this on the cut outs and wherever else you want.

Indie Out

August 28, 2016 — by Chelsey Bishoff

IMG_4290.jpg

We love being creative when getting ready in the morning. Anyone else out there?! What you put on your back can say a lot about who you are and what your interests involve! And the best part is that you can be whoever you want. But what’s even more crucial to your everyday look, are the accessories you rock! We’re gonna put an indie spin on our bracelets this time. Because hey, you get to choose who you are today! Kill the look with any bracelet, any time.

 

We went to the most beautiful little island. How could you resist that baby blue fringe along the white sand and crystal water?

We layered a beaded choker with a longer beaded necklace for the perfect pairing with the bracelets for this look.

What’s the finishing touch you may ask? Your beach hat– duh! Hats can be a great extra accessory to top it all off. ūüėČ

It’s that time of the year to strap on your new shoes and dust off that calculator you haven’t used since last spring. ¬†Going back to school means trading in your flip flops for notebooks and abandoning the beach for the library. ¬†The school year is a time to grow and learn and we value nothing more than a good education but it also means one more very important thing – BACK TO SCHOOL SHOPPING! ¬†ūüôā

Lucky for you, Pura Vida just launched a brand new Fall clothing line, perfect to wear on those first few weeks back.

IMG_7722-e1466528944350.jpg

With summer in full swing, we are constantly keeping our eyes on cool brands to team up with that fit the Pura Vida vibe. Summer wouldn’t be complete without a great pair of sunglass! In collaboration with the #SeeSummerBetter campaign by Warby Parker, we wanted to share some of the awesome things they are offering to kick off the summer heat. Warby Parker has various locations ranging from California, New York, Arizona to Florida, just to name a few!

IMG_7723Something awesome that Warby Parker offers is their “Home Try-On” program! Need help choosing the perfect pair of¬†glasses¬†or¬†sunglasses? The home try on is perfect for that! You can pick up to 5 pairs and have a week to test them out. We had the chance to try this program out!

IMG_7720We picked 5 pairs of sunglasses. This works out perfectly because you get to see which pair fits you best, and you have 5 days to try them out and decide! With Warby Parkers home try on program, you can even send snapshots to their customer service team and they will help you decide on the perfect pair!

Check out some of the photos below from their summer look book.
