Super Sunday Favorites: 90210 Beverly Hills

The 90s were awesome (duh) and one of the best products of the 90s was 90210: Beverly Hills. The cat fights (Brenda’s bitch face was monumental!), the sex (or lack thereof DONNA), the break-ups (who is dating Dylan this week?), the bizarre plot lines (uh oh, Kelly is in a cult), and of course: the fashion! We recommend wearing the 90s trend by getting inspired by our favorite ladies. Whether it’s lace, sheer, or floral, those girls were not afraid to wear anything, even if it was too small or too big. Here are our picks for Brenda, Donna, Kelly and our favorite pyromaniac/drug pusher, Emily Valentine:

Kelly loved A) looking as sexy as possible and B) looking as old as she possibly could. This means a lot of doily and lace shirts and the grown-up giant blazers! And you can’t forget that scrunchie.

DIY: Fun with Florals

all3

We have 3 fun and creative DIYs for you involving just a few materials. You can add a bit of whimsy to any outfit with these flower arrangements on your head or ears! You can go full blown flower crazy or go a little more reserved. We’ve made 2 different floral headpieces and an easy earring idea for you.

The Flower Crown

materials needed:
an assortment of fake flowers (I used 3 large flowers and 3 smaller varieties but seriously the possibilities are endless)
green floral wire
black floral tape (optional)
wire cutters/scissors

how to:

steps1-3
step4

1. Take the floral wire and measure around your head once like a crown. I reinforced my crown base by doubling the wire.

2. Cut off the stems of the large flowers using wire cutters (note: it can be done with scissors if you are not wimpy like me). The small flowers you can just cut off close to the first bud so you have about 5-6 little buds on each stem.

3. Take the floral wire and wrap underneath the green leaf part of your large flowers.

4.Now wrap each flower around the crown base wherever you want them. I put the biggest flowers where I wanted them first. For the smaller flowers, just wrap around the stem with the wire, filling in the blank spots. Remember to make all the flowers wrap the same so they are all facing the same direction. Tip: Remember when you wrap the wire around the flower or stem to make sure the wire isn’t poking out or it will either get stuck in your hair or just hurt when you put it on! I totally made this mistake.

5. If you don’t go all the way around the crown, you can use the floral tape to wrap the base for a cleaner look, and it helps strengthen the wire.

6. Wear that beautiful crown of flowers!

The Flower Headband

materials needed:
an assortment of fake flowers (I used 1 large flower and 3 smaller varieties but again, the possibilities are endless)
green floral wire
wire cutters/scissors
blank metal headbands

how to:
headband-steps

1. {same as step 2 above} Cut off the stems of the large flowers using wire cutters. The small flowers you can just cut off close to the first bud so you have about 5-6 little buds on each stem.

2. Take the floral wire and wrap underneath the green leaf part of your large flowers and then wrap them around the headband wherever you want them. You’ll have to wrap them pretty tightly so they will stay, but I promise they will stay! I started with the large flower at the one side of the headband, then worked my way around with the smaller flowers. Remember to make all the flowers wrap the same so they are all facing the same direction.

3. Yay! Put that headband on, you look beautiful.

Our third DIY project with these flowers is an easy earring project.

DSC00469materials

*you may not need the wire, read on!

1. Cut off the flower stem right where the stem comes together.

2. Depending on the type of flower you happened to buy, you can either attach the jump ring to the green base of the flower (see figure 1) or you can use floral wire to make a circle to attach the jump ring to (see figure 2). Then simply hook the jump ring to the earring hook and you’re done! Wear those spring-y earrings with pride!
