I was lucky enough to be part of Kristen Turner’s segment for E! News based on her fabulous DIY blog Glitter n’ Glue. Kristen is a maven on all things you can do yourself and look like a million bucks! Her innovate projects are easy and you can do everything with items found in your own home. It’s hard to stay on top of all the newest trends but when you can Do-It-Yourself, you can stay on top without splurging.
The ultra-fabulous Kristen Turner
I love creative blogs, and Kristen’s is one of my personal favorites. For the segment, she covered three projects that are easy, stylish and wearable!
The first was a fringe skirt. Fringe is a fun and playful trend that can add an edge to any outfit. Whether you’re sporting a fringe purse for a bohemian feel, or a fringe skirt for a rocker-esque look, it’s definitely a fun trend. For most people, investing in a fringe item can be questionable…but this fringe “skirt” is a great alternative.
The skirt is actually a belt that has a strip of fringe attached to it so you can add a touch of fringe to any outfit without commitment. For the segment we styled a Forever 21 bandage dress and wrapped the belt around, creating the illusion that the skirt was made that way. It’s a great DIY item, and I can’t wait to wear it in many ways.
Here are some pictures of this great DIY look! All you need is a glue gun, fringe, your favorite belt, and scissors.
The next look she showed E! News was a bow tie made from a men’s tie. In the style of Miss Kelly Osbourne, this bow-tie can be worn in your hair or pinned on various parts of your outfit like on your blazer, your skirt, or shirt. This look is easy and super cute! I loved the colors of the tie Kristen chose and the navy stripes complimented my navy skirt so perfectly!
All you need for this project is a men’s tie, scissors and glue.
The last project she showcased was the paper bag skirt that has been seen on Rihanna and Nicole Richie. For this project, all you need is a pillow case and scissors. No sewing required! I loved this skirt because it looked amazing on, and I was shocked that it was made of a pillow case when I saw it, but it is! If you want your skirt shorter, you can cut it and sew it (if you’re willing)! It’s so easy that I will be making a variety of colors in these skirts which are perfect for the Summer.

I am loving the paper bag waist skirt. How did she do that?
