DIY: Faux Fur and Snakeskin Satchel


- Small Satchel (F21)
- Faux Fur Trim, 1 yard (Joyce Trimming - 109 W 38th St)
- Snakeskin Trim, 1/2 yard (B&Q Trim - 102 W 38th St)
- Red Leatherette Trim, 1/2 yard (Joyce Trimming)
- Gold Chain, 1 yard (Toho Shoji - 990 Ave of Americas)
- 2 Gold Clasps (Toho Shoji)
- Api's Crafter's Pick Glue
- Small Brush, Pliers

Start by cutting off the satchel strap and replace it with the gold links. Open two links on both ends with pliers and insert the clasps and tighten well. Attach the clasps to both sides of the satchel.

Measure the width and length of the flap cover and outline with a pen on the
back of the snakeskin trim. Cut to desired size.

Place the glue on the back of the trim and spread evenly with the brush.

Now place the trim on the cover flap and set in place.

Do the same for the red trim and faux fur. 

The faux fur is placed section by section. Under the flap, cut two for each side of the gold plaque (place vertically) and one for the bottom (placed horizontally).

Simply Grey

 Top - My own design  \  Skirt - Apt. 9  \  Pumps - Nine West  \ 
Envelope Clutch
-  Rainbow  \  Sunglasses and Earrings - F21 

I've been on the hunt for the perfect comfy, lightweight top I can throw on but have had no success. Being a "real" girl with curves has made it very hard to find modest and flattering pieces. So I decided to have one made and am so happy with the results! This top is made from high quality knit jersey so it's super comfy and won't pill! From this eureka moment, I decided to finally design my own pieces and have them produced in different colors and prints! I am in the process of creating my own clothing line called NOEH. Noeh is a hebrew word meaning "fine". Each piece I design, I have in mind the multi-tasking women of today who lead busy lives juggling many duties at home and work. Women who need easy pieces in their closets that they can throw on and look put together, refined, and beautiful in an instant! You can email me at if you would like to place an order for your size and desired color in advance! From there I want to design more classic staples such as slim fitting pencils skirt(different colors and patterns), denim skirts(different washes), flattering dresses, and more! Stay tuned :)

Five Fall Favorites

Colored Jacket- Old Navy (old, another option here, here, and here)  |  Leather Skirt- Zara (old, another option here, here, and here)  |  Zebra Print Loafers- Forever 21  |  Mini Studded Satchel- Forever 21 (DIY tutorial here)  |  Gold Jewelry- Forever 21 and Prima Donna

It seems like summer has just started and it's already coming to an end. But, we have the crisp autumn weather to look forward to! Which means keeping warm and cozy in light layers and comfy loafers. Perfect for the best time of year of sipping hot chai lattes while strolling through the park watching the leaves change colors. :)

Here are five key pieces I’m looking forward to wearing this fall. A colored jacket paired with a leather skirt, and animal print loafers. Plus, accessorizing with this black messenger bag which I added black studs to give it an edgy look with layers of delicate gold jewelry. While shopping for new fall accessories online I discovered Raise. An awesome site that offers discounted gift cards from my favorite retailers such as Zara, Forever 21, H&M, and more! As you know I love H&M for its on trend pieces for a girl on a budget but also for their basic bags and flats that are perfect for DIYs (tutorial here and here). So, I was very excited when I saw H&M gift cards you can buy for 15% off their valued price. Plus, if you have extra merchandise credit or gift cards lying around you can sell them too! What discounts will you discover? Let the fall shopping season begin!
