When I love a certain pair of shoes, I hate seeing them get worn out day after day.  There’s always that one favorite pair that you have to say goodbye to after so many wears!  Since I want to get the most out of my shoes and definitely get my money’s worth, here are a few shoe repair hacks that will make your shoes look good as new!

  • Use toothpaste and a toothbrush to restore whiteness to your tennis shoes.  Don’t underestimate what a little toothpaste can do!  Scrub any parts of your shoe that need some shining.Chelsea Crockett - Shoe Hack
  • Cover any scratches with nail polish.  Whatever the color of your shoe may be, apply some nail polish to camouflage any noticeable marks and scratches.  Let it fully dry before wearing them!
  • If you have a pair of suede shoes, use a nail file to get rid of any stains or scratches.  I had never heard of this hack before, but it really works!  Lightly rub the nail file against the suede to eliminate any annoying stains or scratches.
  • Believe it or not, you can get rid of scratches on leather with a little moisturizer.  If you ever wear leather, then you know it can get beat up pretty easily!  Adding a dab of moisturizer will loosen up the leather and make any scratches disappear.   

Try a hack or two out for yourself!  They really work!

3 DIY Ways to Spice Up Your Heels

When it comes to dressing up nice, my shoes are usually my favorite part of my outfit to pick out, especially when I’m wearing a fun pair of heels or wedges!  Although I love rocking a simple pair of heels when I can, most of my pairs are pretty boring.  I found 3 different DIY ways you can give your heels a stylish makeover! 🙂Chelsea Crockett - Ribbon Heels

  • Use pretty ribbon that you can wrap around your ankle.  Depending on the color of your heels, pick a color that compliments them.  I suggest even using the same color ribbon as your heels to make it look more professionally done, instead of mix-match.  Since it’s hard to explain without showing you an example, you can go off the picture on the right.  Simply wrap it once around your heel, then around your ankle, and finish it off with a bow!
  • Glue on glitter on the bottom part of your heels.  Use a superglue paste to apply to the underneath of your heels and sprinkle on glitter until they’re completely covered.  Let them dry and then show em’ off!  Chelsea Crockett - Jewel Heels
  • As for thicker heels, superglue on various jewels and beads like the picture on the left.  If you purchase a super strong glue to assure that the jewels will stay put, then you shouldn’t have to worry about them falling off!  I suggest using different colors and shapes while still complimenting the original pair of heels. 

Which DIY is your favorite?  Let me know below which one you are going to try out for yourself!

With winter approaching, it’ll be that time of year for winter dances, balls, formals, and much more! You’ll need all of your stylish dance attire including a dress, shoes, and not to forget accessories. There are certain trends in style right now that will surely make you best dressed at your event! 🙂

First comes first, your dress.  It’s good to stick to winter colors instead of bright, summer colors or patterns.  Neutral colors such as black, cream, and silver are all good choices! Chelsea Crockett - Black Dress If you like a little color, maroon, dark reds, greens, and blues are winter appropriate and super popular for the season.  As far as style, I love simple dresses that are timeless.  The picture on the left is a good example of this!  I also suggest finding a dress with sleeves.  Wearing a jacket with a sleeveless dress can sometimes be a pain.  Sleeves are a good substitute that permit to the weather!  Another cute style is off-the-shoulder.  You can still find sleeved off-the-shoulder dresses that are good for the cold weather.  As far as shoes go, heeled booties are both formal and weather appropriate!

Windsor is one of my favorite places to dress shop.  They have so many dresses like the ones I described above!  Other good places to look are Dillard’s, Nordstrom, and Forever 21.  I suggest shopping in stores instead of online to guarantee the perfect fit!

Which look will you be rocking for your winter dance?  Let me know in the comments below!

One of my favorite things about high school was going all out for our Friday night football games.  Some of my best memories of my four years were made at our school’s stadium cheering on the team!  Chelsea Crockett - Game Day OutfitWith college, the football game days only get bigger and better, especially if you go to a big school.  Here is a little guide I put together if you need some help picking out an outfit for your next game day!

One of my favorite things that I’ve seen girls wear on game day is oversized jerseys.  I know some schools sell them in a dress style to pair with accessories and booties!  If your jersey isn’t long enough to style as a dress, rock it with a ripped pair of white jeans like the picture on the left.  You can also determine how casual you want to be by wearing wedged booties or a pair of sneakers! 

Incorporating your team’s colors into your outfit is obviously a must.  Although some colleges dress up more than others, you can always accessorize using colored necklaces, hats, etc.  Since suede is big this fall, pairing an off-the-shoulder shirt with a button- up suede skirt is so cute!  Another piece of clothing you can pair your outfit with is a flannel in your school’s colors.  You can either substitute it for a jacket or tie it around your waste!

I hope you enjoy this year’s football season!

Adidas: Sporty vs. Stylish

Adidas has always been known as a sporty, workout brand offering lots of different exercise attire. Recently, people on Tumblr, Instagram, and other social medias have broadcasted the fashionable, street-style side of Adidas. Most either know one side or the other, so here’s a little insight on both sides of the brand!

Let’s start with the side Adidas is known for. Ever since 1949, Adidas has been creating workout and exercise clothing for decades. If you waChelsea Crockett - Adidasnt a pair of shoes, Adidas has anything from soccer to basketball to running shoes. As far as apparel goes, tanks, leggings, shorts, etc. are patterned and unique.

Considering the fashionable side of Adidas, the picture above and to the left are perfect examples of stylish Adidas attire! Retro sweatshirts, t-shirts, and especially jackets are the new trend. They even offer retro-styled shoes that are spreading throughout social media. Pacsun and other stores even sell shirts and other clothing with the Adidas logo, so check it out! This is a perfect example of “street style” which is comfy but trendy. (What’s better than that?)

Let me know below which side of the Adidas brand you like better!

Hey insiders!

It’s finally bonfire weather, which means big sweaters, s’mores, and memories made with your closest friends.  The weather’s just a little chilly, allowing you to bundle up by the fire and enjoy some apple cider.  Whether you’re going to a bonfire or hosting one, you’re going to need an outfit that’s going to be on fire (not literallyWink).

If the bonfire bash you’re attending is just a small get-together with friends, putting a lot of thought into your outfit isn’t needed.  A big sweatshirt and sweatpants is all you need to keep you warm and comfy while roasting marshmallows.Chelsea Crockett - Over-Sized Sweater Look

If you’re attending more of a party/bonfire, you’ll need a fashionable, yet warm, autumn outfit to wear.  Since over-sized sweaters are a huge trend in the fashion world, they’re perfect to throw on with your favorite pair of leggings.  Pair this with your favorite boots and you’re set.  I prefer combat boots because, in addition to keeping your toes warm, they’re also stylish and edgy.  If you want to accessorize, try wearing a scarf and purse to match.  Even throw on a beanie to make your look trendier.

Of course, you can always take the even dressier route.  Denim and plaid are both two styles that are hot in Hollywood right now.  If you choose to wear either of these patterns, try rocking a long-sleeved button up.  Instead of buttoning it up, leave it open and show off your favorite shirt or V-neck.  As for pants, simply wearing jeans or leggings will work just fine.

Good luck and have fun!
