It’s graduation season ladies and gentlemen, which means lots of graduation ceremonies, parties, and gifts!  If you have a lot of graduation parties to attend, the gifts can get pretty expensive and start to add up.  Here are a few DIY gift ideas that are just as good as any other graduation gift but won’t break the bank!

  • DIY canvas.Chelsea Crockett - Canvas  I know this might seem pretty basic, but creating a canvas to match your friend’s dorm room is a fun, artsy gift!  You can add her favorite saying, verse, quote, etc. like the picture on the right.
  • High school scrapbook.  If you guys were close in high school, ask your friends to put together a page to add to a scrapbook for her!  You and your friends can even all go in on it together.  It’s thoughtful and memorable!
  • A bracelet/necklace/keychain with their school’s colors.  There are so many Etsy DIY accessories that you can customize to say certain things or be a certain color.  Customize it to have her name on it or her class year and her future school’s colors!
  • Freshman year survival kit.  Everyone could use one of these!  You basically put together a basket, or “kit,” filled with different essentials every freshman needs such as pencils, snacks, band-aids, etc.
  • College gear.  I know when I left for college, I wanted every shirt, sweatshirt, bumper sticker, etc. that my school had to offer!  Order something online or check out the college’s bookstore for a cute shirt or other souvenirs!

Which idea is your favorite?  Let me know in the comment section below!

Many of the popular trends from last century are starting to make their way back into the fashion world.  One of which is chokers, which have started to appear in stores and sold by various brands across the board.  You may want a specific choker that you can’t find online or in stores, so… why not make it yourself?

If you like simple, create your own ribbon choker.  This is probably the easiest way to make your own necklace!  Just purchase some black ribbon, whatever you prefer, and measure its length to fit around your neck.  You can either make it a little longer and tie it behind your neck or you can fasten it together with a mini safety pin.  How quick and easy is that?Chelsea Crockett - Chokers

For me, I like to add a little more to my choker such as beads or dangles.  You can find these at most craft stores!  Pick out your initial, your favorite animal, etc.  Customize it as you wish!  You’ll also need a thin black ribbon or thick string to slide your bead onto.  If you want a super simple way to keep it on, just tie a small bow behind your neck.  Your hair will most likely cover it!

Which are you going to make?  Tell me how it turns out in the comments below!

 Thought costume jewelry was only for Halloween or very glamorous occasions?  You thought wrong!  From bracelets, necklaces, earrings, and more, these jewelry pieces have become every day staples.  Thanks to fashion runways and stores like J. Crew, it is totally acceptable to pair a costume necklace with a solid sweater and run out of the house!Chelsea Crockett- costume jewelry

            So what exactly is costume jewelry?  It’s typically jewelry made from inexpensive jewels that are usually bright colored and large in size!  If you plan on wearing costume jewelry, keep your prints and patterns to a minimum.  They are meant to enhance the outfit!  Try wearing a large costume necklace with a solid colored sweater, skinny jeans, and colorful flats.  Large jeweled earrings are great when you have your hair up.  They make even the worst hair day look better.  For inspiration on how to wear costume jewelry, check out Kate Spade and J. Crew outfits.

            Don’t be afraid to add bold jewelry to your next outfit.  You’ll be fashion forward in costume jewelry. 

Love,

How to Wear Silver and Gold Jewelry

Hi Girls,

            Necklaces, bracelets, and earrings are the ultimate accessory to any outfit!  They dress up any outfit and take it to the next level.  When it comes to adding these items to your look, do you pick silver or gold?  I’ll take you through a guide to picking out the perfect metallic shade for your jewelry!Chelsea Crockett-gold jewelry

            Gold jewelry looks great with deep colored tones.  Pair gold jewelry with ruby reds, plum purples, and forest greens.  These deep colors will allow the gold to really pop in the jewelry creating a statement piece!  Cream and royal blue also a great colors to pair with gold. 

              Silver jewelry can be perfectly paired with pastels and soft colors.  Silver jewelry is softer than gold jewelry, so these light shades would be over powered by the gold jewelry.  You never want your outfit to look “off”.  Adding the silver jewelry to a light colored outfit will keep your look soft, but with added sparkle!  Black and white are very special colors.  They are completely universal and go great with both silver and gold jewelry!  If you’re wearing black, pick your jewelry based on your mood.  Are you feeling rock and roll or soft and pretty?  Whatever look you’re going for, silver and gold jewelry will forever accessorize any style.

              Love,

                    Chelsea
