12 Free Bag, Tote & Purse Patterns

I’ve been trying to get all the projects around here a little more organized since the blog makeover a couple months ago! It’s been a bit of a process. With over 4 years of tutorials (!!) it’s taking some time. But I am having so much fun looking through everything,…

Fold Over Bow Clutch

Leather and Bow Fold Over Clutch

I think I’ve become addicted to the Fold Over Clutch. Or maybe I’m just addicted to cute and easy accessories. Because seriously, fold over clutches are just really tall zipper pouches that are . . . . wait for it . . . . folded over. Genius right? Since they are…

Spring Makeup Zipper Pouch

Don’t you get all organizey and inspired to clean during the Spring? I am definitely feeling like that – probably also because we’re moving and I’m looking at all the stuff and thinking “I don’t really want to move any of this.” Well I do much better with keeping things tidy…

Totes Canvas Tote

“Totes” Cute Canvas Tote Bag

I don’t think you can have too many totes – do you? I mean, you need to have different totes for different occasions – and for different outfits right? I think so too. A month or so ago I came across this list of the 50 Best Bags of Fall 2014….

Get Out Of Town Tote

Kate Spade Nautical Tote Knockoff

I’m pretty sure Kate Spade and I are long lost BFF’s. She makes pretty much everything with me in mind. I mean, it’s all classic style, Polkadots and stripes, bright colors, and fun pops of gold. What’s not to love there? About a year ago she thoughtfully opened up an…

Lace and Linen Bow Clutch

Linen and Lace Bow Clutch

Sometimes I feel like my style is all over the place. I really love modern prints and styles – but I’m also drawn to looks that are classic and kind of preppy. I think I have multiple personality style issues. Or maybe they’re not issues. Maybe I just need to be ok with…

DIY Infinity Scarf

1 Hour Floral and Lace Infinity Scarf

You guys know I’m so ready for Fall right?! That means it’s scarf weather! Ok, so here in Southern California, it’s pretty much year-round scarf weather. Not to rub it in or anything. But now that it’s cooling off a little we can accessorize more often with pretty scarves, boots and…

Ombre Dyed Beach Tote Bag

Living so close to the beach rather than do the whole “pack up the house and move in for the day” sort of trips, we like to do shorter trips more often. Run down for a picnic dinner, go boogie board for a couple of hours, then head home. So we…

Hi. My name is Beverly and I have a shoe addiction. I have a weakness for cute, stylish, funky shoes. Unfortunately I do not have an unlimited shoe budget. (Someday baby. Someday.) Shoes are a little hard to go all DIY knockoff with too. Most of the time. These little…

My kids are teenagers now – so I don’t get to do full up costumes for them. But I wanted to create something that was fun and Halloween-y, without getting too crazy. I came up with the idea to do a cute, fun headband that can be worn to Halloween parties or work…
