DIY Inspired by Fashion

I guest post recently for Stesha over at the lovely Classic & Bubbly blog. I thought I'd share the post over here with tweaks & what not incase you were hibernating.

One thing I don't blog about is my fashion, because let's face it there's nothing fun about my three day old, peanut butter stained yoga pants. But's that what we have Stesha
 for, right {after you read this you need to run over & check out her style & photography!}? I swear! I just wanna bottle gals up like her and bring them home & have them help me get dressed in the morning. But I'm pretty sure that'd be considered like illegal enslavement or something.

But believe it or not the world of fashion & DIY actually have alot in common.
Fashon trends transition perfectly to crafts & home decor.

Sometimes what we see on the runaway inspires us so much we just want to incporate that style into other parts of our lives. Take for example the fun color blocking trend going on right now.

Or perhaps your more of a fan of Mr. Ombré & Mrs. Color Block's love child, little dip dye
{I admit I'm crushing hard on this trend right now!}
Dress via Style Hive/Pots from The Proper Pinwheel

As you can see, neon is having a major moment right now too.

But then again mint green is also stealing the spot light!

Or perhaps you've heard of a little thing called "chevron"?

See inspiration is everywhere!

 Do you ever look to fashion magazines or retail for crafting & decorating inspiration?
