You can make a flower crown in 4 easy steps.

You will need: elastic, hot glue, glue gun, fake flowers, needle, thread, and scissors.

Step One: Take your elastic, wrap it around your head, and cut it to your desired length.

Step Two: Cut your fake flowers off the stem, making the back of the flower flat and free of plastic.

Step Three: Hot glue on the flowers close together along the elastic.

Step Four: Sew the two ends of the elastic together.

Jeans are an essential to every girl during autumn! Lately, I’ve been loving the sky-high jegging from American Eagle Outfitters. These jeggings look exactly like jeans and are super cute with boots and a flowy top.

Who Starts the Trends? You Do.

Hello Everybody!
Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about fashion trends. Not just what the trends are, but how the trends come to be. Most people know what is trending and what is not, simply by looking on the street to see what a majority of people are wearing. Nobody knows why everybody is wearing those particular items, it just seems like the “in” thing to do.

So I’ve been wondering, who starts these trends?

Fashion magazines, companies, celebrities, fashion bloggers, ordinary people? Fashion is the sort of thing that the world decides on as a whole, in a unanimous shaking of the head and a smile.

However, I’m not saying that looking like everybody else is a good thing. Looking fashionable in your own unique way is a wonderful thing! That is the real trend. What I am trying to say is, is that it is not who starts the “trends” or who wears what is on “trend”. Fashion is all about feeling unique and beautiful in your own way. So next time you’re out and about and feel a little bit out of place because of your style– don’t feel that way! Because what is trending right now is you. Do not let fashion magazines and store windows let you down, you own that look you call your own:)

Now back to the original question: Who starts the trends?

You do.
