When my favorite cousin mentioned that she was cutting her hand-me-down mink coat into a vest, of course I asked for the scraps. Inspired by my DIY Christmas gifts, I decided a fur snood would be perfect. Although very easy to create, the documentation process was hell. I got a few decent pics but they didn’t tell a good story. Guess it’s time for me to move on to videos…
- Cut the fur into a rectangle approximately 12″ by 36″.
- Place the fur right sides together along the length of the fabric and pin.
- Once you have sewn this seam, confusingly flip the scarf inside out a few times in order to properly connect the ends. o_O
Since I love you guys and I know those instructions make absolutely no sense at all, I found a youtuber that used a similar method. Check it out here.
Call PETA if you want. But this is softest, warmest thing on the planet. I finally broke out my new moto jacket last weekend to hit the streets for shopping and dinner. The snood was an awesome compliment to the look.

Although Philadelphia Style Magazine only publishes 6 issues per year, they do an awesome job of promoting them. They have a release party hosted by the cover celebrity to launch each issue. These are my kind of people. Good food and great people. And boy am I glad to be on their invite list. Check out a few snaps from the winter issue launch party that I attended last month.
I absolutely died for this look. I smell several DIYs coming on. I’m still coming out of my holiday induced fashion rut. Bear with me.

You would think that I’d have a clue when it comes to interior decorating. It entails combining complimentary colors and prints with interesting textures to create an attractive silhouette. Executing this is second nature when it comes to wardrobe styling. Interiors? Not so much. I know a striking interior design when I see it, but putting it together on my own is always a challenge. Remember the holiday event I attended a while ago? It was held at thee most amazing venue. The lobby of the Hotel Monaco Philadelphia is “styled” to perfection.
I know, the color scheme is eccentric to say the least. But everything is in its proper place, leading your eye from one object of interest to the next. This is an amazing collection of pieces.
I’m totally inspired to step my game up. I plan to move soon, and I want the living area to make a statement. Beautiful enough to shoot in but comfy enough to lounge in. Is that too much to ask? I suppose I should start looking for great decor accessories and furniture with the same mindset I have concerning my wardrobe. Anything timeless, made of good quality and an impeccable fit steals my heart. I know you guys have some budget friendly home styling secrets. Fill me in!
