Hey GirlMoguls – it’s Daisy and I am back with more fashion tips – here’s how you can take those wardrobe basics or staples we talked about and mix and match them into a bunch of totally rad outfits.

  1. The White Tee – who said a white tee needs to be boring?  It doesn’t.  You can go simple by pairing it with jeans and a little cardigan, or if you’re going for a girly look, layer it under a tank dress and pair with leggings.
  2. The Jean Skirt – Artsy or Prepster – you choose.  To go for the artsy look, pair it with a printed top, ling cardigan and throw on a cute hat like a beret.  To totally prep out, tuck in a cute top, layer a cardigan or jacket on top and add in some knee-high socks – argyle preferred!
  3. Leggings – leggings get props for being totally versatile  that means you can wear them so many ways!  So pair them with cool boots, or as a layer under a boho inspired dress or skirt.
  4. There’s nothing plain about the plain tank – there’s a reason you will keep coming back to this piece over and over again.  Layer a spaghetti strap tank over a solid colored short sleeve tee or under a cute cardigan.

Hey GirlMoguls, it’s crafty Daisy here, with another cool little craft you can make at home.  I bet you have a pair or two of old jeans lying around that you’re just not sure what to do with.  So why don’t you turn them into a cool purse that’s an expression of your own style.

Here’s how:

Step 1: using the waistband of the jeans as the opening, cut the legs off a bit longer than you want the purse to be.  If you have to go past the inseam, then just cut across and split the inseam – you can sew the flaps together later.

Step 2: Next  turn the jeans inside out, sew across the bottom of the legs to seal off the purse.  to seal off the bag.  You may have to sew up the inseam as well.

Step 3: Make your straps – cut strips of fabric from the remainder of the jeans to make the straps of the purse and then sew those onto the waistband.

Step 4:  To make a closing for the top, you could add a zipper, some velcro, or a button.

Step 5: Go glitzy – now it’s time to decorate your bag – add press on fabric jewels, patches and other fun stuff to make your bag truly cool.

Back to School Fashion Tips For Girls – Four Pieces, Many Ways

Hey GirlMoguls, it’s Daisy here – can you believe it, it’s almost time to start thinking about back to school – or at least the clothing part of it – which can be my favorite part – if I didn’t have to wear a uniform that it.  But when I am not at school, you know that I totally love clothes and putting together an outfit.  And even though my look may a be bit on the punkier side, I still know how to put together a totally cool outfit for whatever your style sense may be.

So first up, we’re going to cover back to school fashion basics – everyone needs these wardrobe staples in their closet- and this just means these are going to be the building blocks of your wardrobe – over and over again and you can mix and match them.  The good news is that they probably won’t break the clothing budget – so you can stock up on these and still have moolah left over for those fashiony must haves.

Staple #1 – the White tee – and nope I am not talking about a boring old undershirt here.  Look for something that has a bit of a fit to it (and no – I don’t just mean tight!)  Go for a scoop or V-neck over the crew neck.  Look for cute cap sleeves.  You may want to buy more than one cause you’ll be wearing this a lot – and we know that white is almost guaranteed to attract something messy!

Staple #2 – Leggings – yup leggings, not jeans this year will be a pillar of your wardrobe (though you will need a couple of pairs of jeans).  You can go with denim leggings, or a cotton blend kind.  I would go with something on the darker side.

Stay tuned for your next two basics and then I’ll show you how to mix and match!
