WhatIWore: When I think of tartan, Clueless immediately comes to mind. Who can forget the matching yellow tartan blazer, vest and pleated skirt that Cher so confidentially rocked while strolling through the halls of Beverly Hills High? While I’m all for making a statement, I prefer to go the more traditional route with vivid stripes of green, red and navy. So the next time you’re “rolling with the hommies,” or wearing your “most capable looking” white collarless shirt from Fred Segal to the DMV, remember that tartan isn’t just for 90s cult classics. Not wear tartan over the holidays? As if!

If you’re anything like me, you probably have more than enough pairs of sunglasses, with most of them being pretty similar. This is an easy way to upcycle a pair of sunglasses that is either a little more worn than you would like or just plain boring.
- Mod Podge
- Painter’s Tape
Begin by taping off all areas you don’t want to be painted. I liked the idea of covering only the top half, but you could do the whole frame or even a geometric pattern.
Next, mix your glitter with mod podge. I like very fine glitter for this project because the chunkier glitter looks too “arts and crafts” in this case. You should add glitter until the mod podge is saturated. Then go ahead and apply. Wait until it’s dry and then repeat until desired coverage is reached. I only used three coats, but it may be different for different colors and types of glitter.
This is a great way to take a pair of basic cheap sunglasses and turn them into something fun! I absolutely love my pair of retro glamour inspired shades. There are a lot of variations you can use such as, glitter placement, the color(s), and the amount used. Have fun!

This Sunday marks one of my favorite days of the year. A day when I get to experience the glamour of Hollywood and feel like a movie star, all while wearing my pajamas. The Oscars give us a much needed excuse to get together with friends and drool over the high fashion gowns we all dream of wearing. Or in my case, plan what I will wear to the Oscar’s the year Ryan Gosling finally decides to make our relationship public and take me as his date (a girl can dream)! Until then, here are 4 simple steps to put together a fabulous last minute Oscar Party on a budget!
