[diy] Henna Pumpkins

If you saw my Pumpkin DIY Inspiration post last week, you know there are tons of ways to personalize your fall decorations to fit your home. These 'henna'd' pumpkins actually require no henna and are super simple to create. I found small faux pumpkins at Walmart for $2.97 each and used a Sharpie I had on hand. Watch the video below to see how I created my pumpkins!

Runway to Rave [MBNYFW S/S15]

Fashion month is in full swing and the inspiration just keeps coming! Like any good festival-goer, I am always thinking about outfits for upcoming events. Here are a few of the more reave-ready trends I've spotted on the runways this season.

Kaftans
Elder Statesman, Naeem Khan, Rachel Zoe Collection, The Row
Perfect for hot summer festivals with long sunny days, kaftans are light and breezy, while also providing more protection from the sun than your standard ravey outfit. They come in tons of prints and colors, as well as a bevy of varying necklines. Wear your kaftan with flat sandals and over a swimsuit for when you decide you need a little more vitamin D.

Feathers and Fringe
Betsey Johnson, Proenza Schouler
Special embellishments like feathers and fringe add a luxe feeling to any outfit. These fun details even move with you when you dance!

 Bodysuits and Cutouts
Anna Sui
Bodysuits and leotards are an ever evolving trend. I'm loving leotards with cutouts paired with simple accessories for a more sophisticated feel.

Fanny Packs
Elizabeth and James, Anna Sui
 Fanny packs have always been my go-to rave bag. These chic refreshed versions are the perfect hands-free way to keep your belongings safe.

 Dusters
DAKS
An duster-style open dress is a fun way to add drama to your look without too much bulk. Leave it open when its hot, and wrap yourself up when the night cools down.

 Faux Fur
J. Mendel
Plush accessories have always been a rave staple. Trade your fluffy boot covers for sophisticated pieces in bright colors, like this pale yellow faux fur vest.

Clear Vinyl Everythangggg
Lisa Perry
Clear vinyl clothing can add tons of dimension to an outfit. Bonus: its raver-rain-proof and won't be totally wrecked at the end of a long sweaty night.

Chaps
Maison Martin Margiela
Don't think I forgot about country music festivals. Chaps are a great way to cover up that American flag bikini as you toast to the country it represents. Extra points for fringe down the sides! 

Boot Covers
Rodarte
Although these awesome lace-up boots wouldn't be very practical at a rave, lace up "boot covers" for your legs would look fantastic with some booty shorts.
Kreative Kandi
Jeremy Scott
Miley Cyrus' jewelry-making skills rival her other talents, as she proved with her plastic beaded pretties at the Jeremy Scott show. I love the idea of taking kandi beyond bracelets, cuffs, and masks, and expanding to long necklaces and asymmetrical earrings.

I especially loved the headdresses paired with some of the outfits! The combination of colors, textures, and media could be customized to any personality or match any outfit. I see a DIY project in my near future!
