DIY: Fake a Headband

foggydress_headband Does anyone else get head aches when they wear headbands? I hardly ever wear them because they’re not worth the pain I get! If you have the same problem, just fake it like I do. I usually like to wear these when my hair is up in a bun, but they work great with your hair down–totally pain free! Thanks Mackenzie, for being my pretty model! Keep reading for the tutorial.

summer sunsets

I am in Utah again, for my brother’s wedding. The sunsets here take my breath away. And just in case you thought I filtered these at all…they are untouched. It was that gorgeous.

maroon mani’s & moving

Firstly, it is hard to post consistently on here when I am constantly juggling  family reunions, packing boxes, moving vans, loading furniture, 3 am road trips, and weddings. On top of it, we don’t yet have wi-fi at our new place in LA so….this post is brought to you by Starbucks! Been sipping on their Tazo iced herbal tea & bumming off their internet since noon today.

A silly thing I did was get a manicure about a week before packing & cleaning & driving & un-packing & more cleaning.  I just couldn’t turn down a girls trip to the nail salon with the fam. I decided to go with a non-summer maroon shade and my niece chose a very summer-appropriate sparkly-purple. Still no chips (I got the shellac/gel polish)!

I’m hitting the road again, for my older brother’s wedding in Provo. I promise to post again on Monday, about the sad/exciting move from SF–>LA. You can always follow me on instagram

DIY: fix the worn-down between-the-thigh area in your jeans

IMG_1619IMG_1626

SO I was reading some comments over at one of my favorite re-fashion blogs, and someone had asked how to fix a very serious problem: that worn down part of your jeans, between the thighs. Because I definitely do not have sticks for legs (I have what I like to call “runner’s thighs”…), that eventually happens to almost all my denim jeans. I especially hate when this happens to my not-so-cheap jeans (like this pair of Frankie-B’s!). Well this just had to stop, so I came up with a solution that will hopefully work for you too!

Here’s to 2013.

A new year means a new blog for me, and for you! I encounter an endless amount of delicious treats to try, pretty clothes to wear, and silly things to say…I just can’t keep it all to myself anymore. Wish me luck as I  embarrass myself  share TMI kick one more thing off my bucket list by bringing you my fashioned and re-fashioned creations, record my horrible attempt at feeding my husband better food, and motivate myself to stay healthy & fit. If you are ever bored at work, at night, on your phone, or in the car….hello FoggyDress! I’ll always be here for ya. Never a dull moment.

hugs, hanalei
