Simple DIY Fashion Accessories to Glam Up Your Everyday Look!

Happy new year, everyone! Hope you’re off to a grand start. I’m always looking for little tips and tricks for making my everyday look a bit more fun, stylish, and special. Accessories are fabulous because, with minimal effort, you can maximize the cuteness of any outfit. It’s all about the details! To inspire you, here are a few of my favorite simple, DIY glam-it-up pins from my Glam Life Tutorials board on Pinterest. Enjoy!

One of the accessories that I love most is cute gloves! Have you ever noticed how the women in vintage photos always had pretty little gloves that gave them that polished, dressed-to-the-nines look? Make yourself some dolled-up digit covers using only a few inexpensive materials and a hot glue gun with this DIY Pom Pom Gloves tutorial from The Alison Show. SO cute!

Another vintage fashion staple, for good reason, is the bangle bracelet. When vintage and thrift shopping, I’m always on the lookout for bold, statement bangles that will add that perfect pop of color to an outfit. My favorite type, vintage Bakelite bracelets, are usually beyond my jewelry budget, unfortunately. Here’s an easy way to make some fun and colorful bangles yourself though, in exactly the color(s) you want! Just follow this simple DIY Colorblock Bangle tutorial from Lovely Indeed.

And of course, don’t forget the shoes! Check out this fun DIY! Fancy up some plain pumps with this super easy Stud Trim Embellished Pump tutorial from Glitter ‘N Glue. Pretty simple, yet pretty perfect!

Most importantly, show off those gorgeous new accessories and capture this phase of your ever-evolving style with some fun pics! Find out how to look more fab for the camera in photographer Kate Pease’s article, “Yes, You Are Photogenic.” Even the most casual snapshot can look amazing with a few simple posing tricks!


Stay gorgeous, ladies. Browse more DIY posts on my Glam Life Tutorials board over on Pinterest. Let’s make living more glamorously a goal for 2014!

DIY Fashion: Retro Fabric or Glam Glitter Pumps

Are you crafty? Even just a little bit? If so, you can create your own stunning pair of pumps covered in glitter or a lovely retro fabric print. Both of these shoe makeover ideas are made possible with a magical product called Mod Podge, and I found them on the super fun Mod Podge Rocks blog.

The first idea is a retro-fabulous shoe makeover that would be perfect for creating the pinup look of your dreams! These fabric-covered beauties are the genius work of Dave’s wife. How cute are these shoes?!! She’s put together a very detailed fabric-covered shoe tutorial for ya.

Inspiring, no? Those prints are so adorable. But a more dramatic, glam look is more your style, you say?

Been eyeing all of the designer pumps covered in a scrumptious coat of glitter that are everywhere lately? Like these schmancy $595 Christian Louboutin pumps, perhaps? You can make your own version for much, much less if you aren’t afraid to get your hands dirty.

Clever Suzannah from Adventures in Dressmaking will show you how. She’s got a great glitter pump tutorial on her blog explaining how she replicated the Louboutin look for about $10. Pretty nifty, eh?
