2013 Grammys!

Sunday night marked the 55th Annual Grammy Awards and what a night it was. The night was full of great performances, celebrities, & awards given out. Here are a preview of the night’s biggest winners:

Adele came looking very english and adorable on Sunday night. I was very much a fan of her look for the night! She won one of the first awards of the show with Best Pop Solo Performance.

Kelly Clarkson (one of the funniest artists..did you see her acceptance speech?) won Best Pop Vocal Album! Which I can only imagine her is such a whirlwind to go from being on American Idol to winning Grammy awards.

Best Country Solo Performance went to Miss Carrie Underwood! She looked darling in her Roberto Cavalli gown that fit her curves just right. She also gave a powerful performance in an interactive dress… interesting, right? 
Beyonce won her 17th grammy award for Best Traditional R&B Performance for her record, “Love On Top”. So happy for BaddieBey! While she only took home one, her hubby took home three awards on Sunday. One for Best Rap Performance, Best Rap/Sung Collaboration, & lastly for Best Rap Song

 Drake won Best Rap Album, which was a great accomplish for him. I was also rooting for Nas, because he is a legend in hip hop and has yet to receive a Grammy.

 Everyone’s most anticapted winner for the night Frank Ocean won for Best Urban Contemporary Album. He also won a Grammy for his part on “No Church in the Wild” with Jay Z, Kanye, & The Dream.

 Gotye: Best Alternative Music Album &  Best Pop Duo / Group Performance with Kimbra! I know everyone and their mom has listened and loved, “Somebody that I Used to Know”… so it was great to see Gotye & Kimbra win big at the awards. It was beautiful to see Kimbra’s reaction to winning Record of the Year with Prince presenting the award. Such an honor!

I kept my fingers crossed for fun. and they did win Best New Artist! Congrats to them and their awards, because they also won Song of the Year

Mumford & Sons won big with Album of the Year, which is a wonderful accomplishment of the band.

I wish all the winners much more success and Grammy awards in the future!

DIY Project: Bleaching and Fraying Jeans!

I was inspired to style a look similar to this look Rihanna for Drake’s Paradise Tour. I liked the jean shorts and the plaid shorts through the shorts. It was her interpretation of a classic 90’s look to me.
To make the look my own, I decided to make this a DIY Project and make my own bleach and frayed jean shorts. I purchased a pair of old jeans from Goodwill, cut them and make them into this masterpiece:  

To add more drama to the shorts, I decided to use the studs I purchased a few months ago. It was my first time using real studs, but I love the extra effect that they added to the jeans.

Here’s the look I wore the Drake: Paradise Tour concert! I wanted to have a coachella, like feel at the concert so my friends and I decided to get lawn seats. Which ended up NOT in our favor, because we ended up in the mist of a thunderstorm.

(This was me after the rain!)

 Shirt: Nordstrom
 Plaid Shirt: Goodwill
 Shorts: Made by me!
 Shoes: Converse

I documented the process of re designing the jeans in a tutorial, please take a look! Let me know if you have any questions…
