Look Of The Day: Orange, Leopard, and Neon Yellow

So I figured since I'm blogging about trends and fashion,  I should start sharing some of my own looks. I'll probably post these every so often just for fun. I'm not really sure what my style is, but I love playing with patterns and color. So here's my first "Look of the Day" post. I would love to get some feedback so feel free to leave a comment below!

The look:

 In this look I used orange and leopard with pops of neon yellow in my accessories.  I'm kinda obsessed with neon yellow at the moment. I even dedicated a whole board on Pinterest to it: http://pinterest.com/daniglamour/not-so-mellow-yellow/

Also the skirt...obviously high low hem...another obsession I'm having at the moment, I actually feel a little weird if I'm not wearing a high low hem. It's a current problem. Chiffon button up collared shirts are also my must have at the moment. Everything was purchased at good old F21...my second home and place of work, which is actually a source of inspiration for this outfit.


I had to do this wall at work last week and as you can see it's mostly neutral tribal and animal prints with pops of orange. See the connection? I don't think I did it on purpose, but sometimes when I spend a lot of time in a color story it begins to rub off on me! 

And just to prove that I actually have a face, it only got chopped off in the picture, not in real life,  here it is. I'm wearing Limecrime lipstick in "My Beautiful Rocket" and my own Glamourdust in "Princess".

So there's me. What do you think?

Handmade Etsy Finds: Summer Camp

This post is dedicated to my summer camp memories. While coming across two new trends, adult friendship bracelets and tie dye..and I mean tie dye EVERYTHING, I started thinking about all the fun things we would make during arts and crafts at camp. And then it just got me going and I made an etsy treasury with all things summer camp! Here's my finds of the day:

Adult Friendship Bracelets. They're basically you're average friendship bracelet, but blinged out to the max.

This one mixed chains and crystals and even has a leather backing...super fancy.

These ones are really crazy. I like them a lot!

Tie Dye. Now that summer is just around the corner...although it doesn't feel like it in Chicago right now 
*sadface* I'm starting to see a lot of tie dye even in stores around here. And summer camp was the perfect place to learn!

Heres some of my favorite tie dye Etsy finds:

These are a bit different that your classic tie dye tee-shirt, but thats why I love them!

And heres a few more finds that are just fun.

Nope you can't eat it, but you can clean up your sticky mess afterwards with it!

Who didn't make a crown of flowers during Summercamp?? Or in your backyard at least...This one is just gorgeous.

I may have to purchase this. Least favorite part about camp? The bugs. YUCK and I always hate the smell of bug spray so I never wanna use it. Maybe something natural might be a better option! 

Omg this thing was just so cute...I want it. It's a handmade felted chipmunk. Looks just like the real thing and I thought it was the perfect addition to my treasury!

Well here's the treasury itself if you wanna see the rest of my finds. Take a look at my other ones and of course check out my etsy shop while your there!!  http://www.etsy.com/shop/daniglamour

Cut it Out!

Cut outs are a major trend right now. Taking a classic piece of clothing and giving it a bit of a sexy

 edge is always fun. So for those of you willing to show a bit of extra skin, here are some of my favorite

 cut out finds...makes me wish it was summer already!!

Black Dress with Cut Out Harness Top by Reverse

I love the top. Its just cut out in the perfect places and I cant get enough of the high low hem right now, another trend I have a bit of an obsession with at the moment. I like to call it "the mullet" hem...ha.

Red Dress by For Love and Lemons

How fun is that? 

Here's a similar one in black...also by For Love and Lemons.  

Love the velvet burnout and bell sleeves on this one. 

Black Dolman Sleeve Top with Skull Cutout by Lipgloss and Black 
Gettin' a bit more creative here with cut out shapes...
Skulls are one of my favorite things, so a skull shaped cut out...I'll take one in every color please! ;)

And heres something a bit more girly...

Heart Cut out Dress by Kaymkay

Is that fabric not just the most adorable? Has a total vintage vibe to it. 

And another great shape STARS!

Star Cut Out Skirt by Acne

Thats not something you see everyday! Really diggin' the styling on this one. High waist with a bandeau and blazer. Not quite so sure about the placement of the stars though...that top one could get a bit scary if you know what I mean...

And now for some jewelry...cuz accessories are my FAVE.

Geometric Tribal Laser Cut Walnut Wood Earrings by Havok Designs

Lazer Cut Magenta Felt Necklace by TACTIDesign

Cut my Heart Out Two Finger Ring by FSMNYCJewelry

And I cant forget the shoes!!
