How To Wear It: Beyond the Festival

Hey Guys!

This week we wanted to give you some ideas on how to style your Vixen Designs outfits or any other rave/festival outfits, by showing you how to take them from a festival look to an everyday look.  The custom bras that VD and a lot of other designers make can be really glamorous and over the top and may not seem appropriate to wear outside of a festival like EDC.  However, if styled right they can totally work for a night on the town or any fabulous party you may be attending this Summer.  

Here’s how we styled our neon and leopard outfit for both types of occasions!

Going to a rave or festival means you can really have a lot of fun with your accessories.  Here, we paired our neon and leopard outfit with a cropped denim vest from H&M, fluffies (a must!) and added all kinds of coordinating accessories like fishnets and the spiked out eye patch by Vixen Designs (www.etsy.com/shop/ShopVixenDesigns).  We made sure our jewelry and accessories had an edgy feel to go with the rest of the outfit.image

One awesome thing about this outfit is that the bows on the bottoms are pins!  So you can remove them and really have some fun placing them on different parts of your outfit.  Here’s a few ways we did it:

Now, to take this outfit and tone it down we just did a few things.  First, we stripped it down to the core of the outfit, kept the denim vest and some of the edgy jewelry, added some high waisted faux leather leggings and some killer leopard wedge booties and…Voila! An easy way to wear your VD bras outside of festivals so you can really get the most use out of them.

DIY: Curled Ribbon

Add a little pizzazz to your costumes and outfits by curling your ribbon!  This little trick is super easy and can be done in the same way you would curl your hair!

Cut your ribbon about 3-4 inches longer than your desired length, so when they curl up they end up at the length you want them.  I knew I was going to attach mine as a bunch to my outfit so I tied the ends together for easy handling.

Use hairspray to spray along the length of the ribbon.  I used Suave Extra Hold, it’s not sticky, holds GREAT and is cheap at only $2-$3 a can!

Wrap the ribbon around your curling iron starting at the bottom working your way up in a spiral and hold for 20-30 seconds.  I had my curling iron set at a pretty high temperature and the ribbon never burned, however I suggest starting out at a low to medium temperature to test it out and then raising the temp as needed if you’re not getting the curl you want.  

Unwrap the ribbon from your curling iron to get that beautiful spiral curl!

Continue this process with each ribbon and voila!

You’ve taken your ribbon accents from drab to fab!

DIY TUTORIAL: Coachella Floral Hair Crown

With the weather warming up, festival season kicking off and events like Coachella right around the corner, I thought I would share with you this gorgeous floral hair crown tutorial.  I made this beautiful custom hair crown for a client of ours to wear to Coachella next month and she absolutely loved it!  Hair crowns are not only a great way to add that hippie vibe to your festival outfit, they are actually a huge trend in Spring fashion this year and they can easily be customized to your liking using different types and colors of flowers and ribbons!  

STEP 1: Pick out your favorite artificial flowers from your local craft store.  For ours we used roses in shades of red, orange, pink, cream and white.

STEP 2: 

Strip down the stems of the flowers, removing all leaves so you are left with a bare stem and the flower. If flower stems are attached together in bunches, use wire cutters to seperate the stems from each other.

STEP 3:

I always like to take extra time to make sure my projects are extra secure, especially when creating something for a client.  So I removed the flower heads from the stem (they just pop right off) and added a drop of hot glue to the stem and secured the flower back on to ensure that it won’t pop off anymore.

 STEP 4:

Once all flowers are secured to their stems, take two stems and place one flower head just below the other.  Then take your floral tape and wrap it tightly around both stems securing them together.

STEP 5:

Continue adding stems by placing the flower head just below the previous flower head and wrapping the stems together with the floral tape.  In some area I did not place my flower heads together TOO closely together, I left a little more of a gap, because I knew I would be filling in the crown later with loose flower heads to create a fuller look.  However, you may place them as close or as far apart as you wish.

STEP 6:

You will continue to add stems and wrap them with floral tape until you have HALF or ONE SIDE of your crown. 

STEP 7:

Cut the floral tape and let the extra length of the stems hang out for now.  Take two new stems are start this process over to create the other half of your crown.  Make it the same length as the other side and again, cut the floral tape and leave the extra stems hanging out.  The stems of the artificial flowers are made of wire so they bend pretty easily.  As you are adding your stems and taping them together you can shape them into a nice curve.

STEP 8:

Now take the first flowers on each side and cross their stems together.  If you have enough room you may even twist them together a few times.  Then take your floral tape and wrap it around the crossed stems securing the two sides together.  This will make for a nice center piece on the crown and the direction on the flowers looks nicer this way, rather than having them all face the left or all face the right.

STEP 9:

Now, let us tend to our unkept stems.  Using wire cutters, trim off all the excess stems except for one.  

STEP 10:

Take that one untrimmed stem and bend it to create a loop.  Using your floral tape wrap the end of the trimmed stems and the bent stem to secure it in place and make for a nice clean look.  Make sure all ends are wrapped with tape so that nothing will be poking into your head later on.

STEP 11 (optional)

Fill in your crown with various other loose flower heads or accents.  I used rose heads in other shades of pink and some artificial babys breath.  I used hot glue to adhere them into my crown to create a fuller look and fill in any gaps.

STEP 13 (optional)

I found that the floral tape was a bit sticky on both sides and was a little concerned about it getting stuck to my clients hair.  Although I tested it on my own hair several times and didn’t find it to be a problem, I just wanted to add a little cushioning to this hair crown for her just as a precaution.  I cut out a strip of white felt and used hot glue to secure it to the inside of the hair crown, covering the sticky floral tape.  You can’t see it once it is on your head and it just makes for softer feeling against your head instead of tape and wire.

STEP 14:

Cut your ribbon to your desired length.  I used ribbon in the same shades as the flowers and added in some glittery gold ribbon and irridescent hair tinsel for some extra sparkle!  You can never have too much sparkle.

STEP 15: Tie each ribbon onto the loops you made at the ends of your crown.  

STEP 16:

Trim the ribbon so they are all even and the appropriate length.

And VOILA! You have you’re very own customized hair crown!

Enjoy!
