The ocean is home to some of the strangest and most inspiring creatures, colors and things on earth. Why do you think we all tune in to watch Shark Week year after year? There are so many wonderful things in the water to inspire us, and here are some of the products of that inspiration!
If this was a full-length shot, we bet she would be sporting a scaly tail. Her beachy aqua locks must be the envy of mermaids in each of the seven seas!
Lady Gaga, with colored hair and an oil-slicked mermaid tail, looks mesmerizing. Despite it’s beauty, this shot is also a sharp reminder of how NOT to treat the ocean and its inhabitants.
Let’s just start off by saying that everything about this look is amazing. The flow of the dress makes her look like she’s wrapped up in the ocean, and those Nicholas Kirkwood Mermaid Shoes really round out this under-the-sea style. Plus, the pairing of the bold blues is shrimply amazing. Too much?
This dress is amazing! We love the cut, and check out those SEAquins! Seriously though. It looks like the ocean and the dress were cut from the same cloth.
In 2008 Jean Paul Gautier created a sea-inspired collection. Models glided down the runway in flowing, sequined frocks reminiscent of beautiful sirens. Their hair was even made to look perpetually wet!
The sea is a world unexplored for most, which is why its mysterious nature makes it so inspiring. See our treasure chest of sea-inspired embellishments on our Under the Sea Inspiration Page.
Spring is in the air and girly frocks will define the season. Lace trimmed camisoles were seen marching down the runways of Dior, Nina Ricci, Barbara Bui, and Antonio Berardi. This is a great trend for a DIY project, and since I am such a fan of upcycling things from the closet or an inexpensive thrift store find, I would like to show you how you can turn a simple camisole into a great top that fits right in with springs hottest trend.

Every time I go shopping for something new, it becomes my favorite piece of clothing and I want to wear it over and over. Of course that only last until I go shopping again and I find something else. Then they all end up piling up in my closet and I forget about them.
With time I have discovered that with simple changes I can bring those forgotten pieces back to life and make them my favorites again. I’m sure this happens to many of you, and that’s why every week I’ll give you ideas on how to transform pieces that you already have and make them new again.
For my first blog I’ll show you one of my favorite technique to adding iron-on appliqués to my clothes. They are so simple to apply; it takes less than 5 minutes to transform any piece of garment. The first one I did for myself was a studs eagle appliqué on top of a gray t-shirt. Everyone loved it and asked me where I bough it from. I always get compliments about it.
I’m not a rhinestone person, but recently we had a shipment of new styles of iron-on appliqués and one of them was an all crystal dragon. It is really hot and the first thing I thought was it would look perfect on my black blazer. So I added it to my blazer and I love the way it looks. With over 200 styles of rhinestone & studded iron-on appliqué on our website, I’ve been redesigning a lot of my clothes. If you have good drawing skills you could also make your own design and then fill it with rhinestones and studs.
