DIY: Padded Clothes Hanger

No comments:
I did this little DIY day before because I was in need of a bit fancy/ padded hanger to shoot a few garment pics on. The hanger came out a bit droopy at the shoulders, but is fine for strappy dresses I guess. I wasn't fully happy with the outcome, as I needed it for photographs, but if you are looking for cute additions for your wardrobe or just want to make those wire hangers prettier, this is the DIY you might want to try.

Also the fact that I didn't need to buy or source anything from outside makes it worth the while. I spent around 15-20 mins and it was done. The hanger I used was a wire hanger I got with my drycleaning, the cotton pads are the 'Dove' make up remover pads, the wlite tissue is a roll from the dollar store that I had some left from around Christmas, also I wrapped it in a rough piece of cotton cloth to add some bulk . Other than these, you just need scissors, scotch tape and maybe transparent glue.
Below is a step by step picture description of what I did and how...

I started by taping 2 cotton swabs together on the sides of the hanger, after I bent the hanger to get the desired curved look, as available in the market...

A detailed photo of the first two swabs taped over the hanger

finished with 2X3=6 swabs taped to a side

added 2 cotton swabs from the bottom to the far corners and then placed 2 extra on top to give extra padding at the ends of the hanger...

Also taped 2 cotton pads to the top most part, here's the tissue I used to wrap around

Covered the hanger with a rag, left over piece of cotton, if you like it, you can use a long strip of printed cotton fabric as the final wrapping too...

The Runway Collections for Revlon

A quick post today, telling you about the surprise package I received from Revlon Canada today. With summer playing hide and seek and winter determined to stay, the days are getting warmer slower than snail's pace. Sometimes on days like these, all a girl needs is a pretty little package waiting for her by the door.

Revlon Selects surprised me with these nail art products I can't wait to try out. P.S. I was gonna go out hunting for the perfect nude shade this weekend and had been dying to try Revlon 3D nail art stickers.

Haven't yet used them properly, really just received them, but tried out a finger each and here's what I felt...
The nail enamels dry pretty fast, always a plus! The nude shade is awesome, 1 coat is enough if you are in a rush. The metallic shade does look pretty cool as it changes color with the play of light, it needs 2 coats for proper shine and is also quick to dry. The nail are is 3D and very easy to use, it comes with it's own little applicator/ filer. The 3D art does not require any drying time so good to go as soon as you dab it on your nail.

All in all, I am super happy with this gift box. Loved all three products and can't wait to use them all up! Thank you Revlon Canada!xx

P.S. Please don't mind the boyish square nails and the not so focused cell phone clicked pictures, due to utter excitement!

Sonas Denims San Francisco

No comments:
I found out about Sonas San Francisco patch work denims via Brand Backer and was pleasantly surprised. These patch work beauties are making their way up in the fashion circles and have been spotted on celebs every now and then.

These patch work jeans remind me of a pair I owned when I was a teenager and are truly a work of art as each denim is basically a puzzle put together by combining almost 50 pieces. These come in skinny, ultra skinny and flared fits, named: Broadway Skinny, Haight Ashbury Flare, Nopa Skinny and Polk Street Ultra Skinny for women and various slim fits for men as well. From the looks for it my favorite so far is the Broadway skinny and the Polk Street Ultra skinny.

Just for the StyleScribbles readers, Sonas Denims are giving a 20% discount, at checkout type the Reader Discount Code: love2013 and enjoy your own patch work wonder. Oh and their website also has free shipping/ free returns policy! Bonus!
