DIY: Suede Rhinestone Wrap Bracelets + Invite For DIY Party During New Orleans Fashion Week

Is It Fall yet? Here we are October 7th and I think the weather is FINALLY starting to change here in Los Angeles. There’s something so wrong about wearing shorts in October, but when the iPhone weather app tells me it’s 94 degrees outside, it doesn’t leave me with many options. Thankfully, things seem to be cooling off which means I canย  start wearing my Fall fashions.

Pulling out the Fall gear means storing away the Summer swag. Although I’m happy for the change, there are a few things I’m sad to see go. One of them being my neon rhinestone wrap bracelet. Do you guys remember that DIY project? (If not click here) Definitely one of my favorite Summer DIY projects, but I think neon is more of a Summer trend. I wanted to find a way to rework this project for Fall. So using the same technique, I decided to trade neon rope for warm colored suedes like oxblood and navy. This update was the perfect transition for Fall.

I’m so excited that I’ll be in New Orleans next weekend making these very wrap bracelets as part of New Orleans Fashion Week Retail Shopping Day!!!

I hope all of my lovely readers in the Crescent City can join me next Saturday, October 13th from 11am to 1pm at Hattie Sparks for the DIY party of a lifetime…yes, lifetime! We’ll be shopping, crafting and just having an all around good ole time. It’s going to be an amazing afternoon kicking off an amazing week of fashion and creativity in the city of New Orleans.

There’s a special place in my heart for that city. For those of you who don’t know I wen to college in New Orleans and have so many wonderful memories of my time there. Be sure to follow me on Instagram (search @Glitter_N_Glue) to keep track of all the fun!

Hattie Sparks is located at 714 Adams Street NOLA 70118. DIY is from 11a-1p while supplies last
