I LOVE kimonos! They were the perfect layering piece for the summer and now they’re making a great transition into fall in slightly heavier fabrics with more intense colors. I love how you can get really great color using Tulip one step tie dye, so often your color looks great until you start rinsing it out and it all washes away. I’ve found that with the tulip dye, if I leave it on for about 3 hours before rinsing I get the strong colors I was hoping for.DIY Kimono back view 2 by Trinkets in Bloom

I fell in LOVE with this pearl necklace by Stella McCartney the first time I saw it and it’s surprisingly easy to make your own version. The original necklace is one long strand of pearls on a wire. I made mine on two separate wires to give it a little more stability. Feel free to make yours on one long strand if you prefer.Stella McCartney Inspired DIY Wired Pearl Necklace tank closeupStella McCartney Inspired DIY Wired Pearl Necklace beadsStella McCartney Inspired DIY Wired Pearl Necklace twistStella McCartney Inspired DIY Wired Pearl Necklace tank long
