D.I.Y Preppy Wall Decor

Here’s a quick and simple DIY project for wall decor. I took an old frame and took the back out. I found a monogram sticker laying around (preppy girl problems) and put it on the glass. You can get any size monogram sticker and any size frame to do this.

I was even thinking about doing two of these and putting it in the opposite ends of my room. You can get a monogram sticker from Etsy and my frame was specifically from Home Goods.

Mad about Plaid

‘Tis the season to wear plaid right now and you might be sick of it but I’ll just quickly talk about my favorite plaid shirts for this season.

IMG_3431.JPG I really like the pattern on this J.crew factory shirt. It’s no longer available but I wasn’t so impressed with the material because it’s thin. However, I can always throw a sweater over it.

IMG_3432.JPGIMG_3141.JPG This shirt is from Uniqlo. This store has an amazing selection of flannel/ plaid shirts. Please check it out here. The original price was 29.90 but I got it for 19.90 since I was at their grand opening.

IMG_3433.JPG I’m in love with this bright red Old Navy plaid shirt. I first laid eyes on this shirt last season when my friend Monica had it. I waited a whole year for this to go back in stock. It’s actually on sale right now for 22 bucks. Or you can wait to shop at Old Navy on Sat. Nov. 22nd to get it 50% off when you use your old navy/gap card.

IMG_3434.JPG This is definitely my most favorite plaid shirt of the season. You already know why. Elbow patches! Yes, I know your grandfather wears elbow patches but I’ve always been a fan. I got the last of my size from H&M and it’s only 29.95.

 

First blog entry- Uniqlo item review

Hi everyone!

For those who don’t know me, my name is Tep. I’m here to share my DIY projects, fashion deals, and life-style hacks. I appreciate all of the support from my awesome friends and family. My first blog will be a review on a Uniqlo scarf.

This scarf is warm and could be worn in two different ways. It can be worn as a scarf or as a poncho. I’m glad that they just opened a store at my local mall. It was only $19.90 and worth every penny. This scarf can really make your outfit stand out even when you’re wearing basic clothing without any patterns or designs.
