Birds of A Feather

Watching Project Runway always makes me want to grab a pair of scissors and some fabric and go to town. Sadly I am no Christian, so it usually ends with me lying on the floor, exhausted, surrounded by scraps of fabric and no dress for Michael Kors to mock (and no Heidi to "Auf Wiedersehen" me).

Tonight was no different.

Except this time, instead of trying to tackle a whole dress, I decided to make the feather hair accessories that I noticed some of the models and designers wearing throughout the episode. If y'all remember, I did a post a bit ago about some feather hair accessories that I was in love with, especially the ones I saw at Urban Outfitters. Sadly, I wasn't feeling the same about the price tag. (Call me cheap,which believe me I am, but I pay $20 for shoes ,not headbands.) And here's the end result!

They were SUPER easy to make (I just glued the feathers on fabric covered headband with some tacky glue) and it cost about $10 to make two.


My favorite dress of the night.

I was so happy when I found out that my favorite commentator on VH1's I Love the -INSERT DECADE HERE-... had written a book.

My mom surprised me and signed me up for a cupcake decorating class tomorrow (3 hours! Who knew baking was so hardcore!?!) so hopefully I'll have some nifty things to post.

Your mom sounds awesome. I'd kill for a mom who surprised me with a cupcake class. I hope you treat her well.(and don't plan to put her in a nursing home one day no matter how many times she repeats a story.)
