DIY: Who’s Running The World?… Beyonce In A Mini Fringe Skirt

If you follow me on twitter then you know I always start my day off by listening to a playlist on my itunes titled “Hello…Good Morning”. This is a playlist of songs that inspire and motivate me to tackle the day, including: Power by Kanye West, Big Pimpin by Jay Z, All I Do Is Win by DJ Khaled, Working 9 to 5 by Dolly Parton and many, many more.  I recently added Beyonce’s  Run The World (Girls) to the list. I’m beyond excited because now Mrs. Knowles-Carter has blessed us with a video that’s equally as fabulous as the song!

Houston, Texas baby!

This video is gritty and glamorous and packed full of fantastic do-it-yourself ideas.

This headband situation…

This turtleneck/ necklace combo…

Ummmm hello… these earrings!

These shoes… duh…

But I’d love to think Beyonce and her stylist Ty Hunter watched my E! News segment and were inspired by my segment to create a fringe mini skirt (Yes I know they filmed the video before my segment aired, but please don’t ruin this for me!)

If you were able to catch my DIY segment on E! News then you’ve already seen this tutorial and hopefully you’ll be creating one soon and sending me pictures… hint, hint. If you missed it, below is the quick and easy how to…

Materials: A fancy belt (the one pictured is from Target), 2 yards of fringe, glue, scissors

Glue two rows of fringe to the back of the belt. Let dry, then wear over a skirt and shake your groove thang!

You can use any color fringe and wear over any color skirt. Using the ombre fringe could also be an added bonus. The sky is the limit!

Don’t ya’ll laugh… I’m doing my best Beyonce!

    wanna make one for myself but i cant find any fringe material. 😦
    i live in australia so would shops like target/big W/kmart have any?

    It looks like it’s attached to the skirt ♥
    It will look awesome with neon fringes on top of a white fitted mini skirt 😀
