Lounge DIY: a vintage-inspired kitsch crown

Inspired by a vintage pipe cleaner crown, I wanted to make a New Years Eve headpiece, suitable for how excited I am about 2015! It turned out so perfectly I decided to make a lounge-y DIY tutorial--a super easy, sweet little project you can do from your bedroom.

The original crown was probably from the 1960s, and was decorated with gold painted leaves, plastic grape bunches, and black glass bead strands. I wanted to channel my own aesthetic into the idea, so I bought bunches of pastel roses, faux birds and cut crystal chains. This is a perfect way to use up those projectless findings in the bottom of your craft box.

Our Perfect Holiday Wishlist 2014

she and reverie's Perfect Holiday Wishlist, featuring Charlotte Olympia, Catbird, Wildfox, Annick Goutal and more!

Winter in New York City is magic. Christmas lights make the city sparkle even more under white drifting snow, and it's lovely to have an excuse to stay at home and get cozy with a cup of cocoa (and maybe someone cute). We're here to help you bundle up and snuggle down with our Perfect Holiday Wishlist, including some very suitable accessories to our favorite she and reverie lounge pieces. What's your favorite pick?

she and reverie's limited edition Sweet Perfume Chandelier Sweater because... you don't even need a necklace--add a pair of tap pants and you're ready for a cozy evening in.
Charlotte Olympia Pretty Kitty flats because... they're the perfect colors, and they're half off right now!
Annick Goutal's La Violette fragrance because... it's a perfectly-sweet, slightly-powdery, unpretentious violet fragrance that *everyone* loves. ("The love-at-first-sight flower" is right--it's like a magnet, we swear.)
she and reverie's Gartered Pettiskirt because... those childhood dreams of frothy tulle and silk never quite left, did they?
Catbird's limited-edition Kitten candle because... with notes of musk, amber, and violet, it smells cozy, sweet, & sexy at the same time (AKA, perfection).
Wildfox's Malibu Barbie sunglasses because... we live la vie en rose--so seeing the world through rose-colored glasses is only natural.
A faux fawn fur collar because... we love adding a little woodland mischief to our winter ensembles.
A handmade diamond crescent moon ring because... tiny little adornments remind us to notice the details.
she and reverie's jewel-printed Sun Top because... it's like wearing a tiara made of silk and goes with just about everything, from a girly skirt to a pair of high-waist denim jeans.
