If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to update your basic blue jeans, look no further than this DIY! It’s so easy, and there’s absolutely no sewing involved. Just place the gems and studs where you want to add some pop, heat them up with glue, and you’re ready to hit the town in style!DSC_0662 What You’ll Need:

 DSC_0663 1. Lay out your jeans and place the iron-on studs and pearls to the desired areas. We laid the studs and pearls out in a denser pattern at the top and faded them out to the middle of the jean.

The Perfect Spring Accent

By: Goldie

It is finally March and I am very excited.  The thought of shedding the many layers worn to keep warm through yet another rough New York winter has got me doing cartwheels.  But, we can’t pack up the sweaters and plush fabrics just yet, the cooler days still linger.  However, there is no reason why we can’t add some spring like accents to help get us in the spirit of the up coming season.  Flowers symbolize spring better than any I can think of and M&J has got a large assortment of flower pins.  A flower pin makes the perfect spring time accessory and is quite versatile. 

 It can be added to a velvet bag or scarf so they can easily be carried over from winter to spring, and of course it looks great on your spring apparel too.
