Making colourful cool. Style tips from Kenzies closet. Thanks for the post.
Colorful tights are my favorite thing to wear once the temperatures drop. And of course I feel like Blair Waldorf so why wouldn’t I wear them?! I styled four outfits around my current pairs of colored tights, showing you how I wear them throughout fall and winter. It just so happens that Target has their tights on sale this week so head on over to your local Target to check out there selection!
It was a bit chilly as we took the pictures and Ebbie was just not feeling going outside, so she decided to supervise from the screen door. (:
My first outfit would be perfect if we went to a relative’s house for Thanksgiving. The colors just scream fall and the loose fit of the dress would be perfect for the food baby I have by the end of the day.
The next outfit is perfect for a…

Lycra moves you – need we say more! Great artistic expression, highlighting the easy free flowing nature of lycra.
Your daily dose of advertising awesomeness from around the world!
- Location: London
- Client: Lycra
- Name: Lycra moves you
- Category: Film
- Why I like it: Nice! Imagine the brief: take a dull, almost industrial product (a stretchy fiber!) and delicately try and balance the functional (must feature product! must convey functional benefit through some sort of demo!) with the emotional (make it a part of people’s lives! make it contemporary! make it meaningful!) A groan-inducing challenge, which they somehow pulled off flawlessly: The film is beautiful, and almost hypnotic in its use of special effects, color and movement; there is a linearity to the storytelling as we go through the woman’s day; and all of this is wrapped around a clear message of how the product moves with us through life. Really impressive.

The original how to make lycra costumes and other stuff out of spandex – totally loving this series. See also part 2 of the same series. Well done!

Spandex: Fabric of choice for ridiculous (but awesome) comic book costumes. Photo by Black Vest Photography.
Pull up a chair, grab some coffee, and let’s chat about spandex. Spandex is an amazing fabric for both cosplay and everyday wear. It’s amazing for any project that needs a bit of stretch, whether you’re looking to turn yourself into a superhero or make a pair of sexy yoga pants.
Just to be upfront, I don’t feel particularly skilled at working with spandex. However, I have been dabbling with it for about a year now, so I thought I’d share what I’ve learned along the way.

First up, let’s talk terminology. Spandex (or elastine outside of North America) is a synthetic fabric known for its exceptional stretchiness. Many knit…

Lexi raises some interesting points here – is there space for a gothic or other fashion sense. I think so – with so many people making their own lycra / workout wear and with printable lycra being easy to come by – there has to be others who want a different look – how about fit and fat or gothic… get in touch if you workout in lycra and mash up different genres of clothing for fun!
Perhaps you need a new swimsuit – check these suggestions out, whether you like the traditional ‘speedo’ variety, or the swim bike pants called ‘jammmers’. The only thing missing is the traditional men’s one piece swim suit, which is great for those guys who don’t have a 6 pack or have scars or burns on their abdomen. I can’t seem to find many men’s one piece swim suits, email me at lycraluva at gmail dot com if you do come across any. Thanks in advance LL.
When it comes to buying a swimming costume there are many factors to consider. What will you be using your new swimsuit for? Will it be used once a day, once a week, or more like once a month? Do you need it for leisure swimming, training/fitness or racing? And then there’s the vast amount of different styles, colours and swimwear materials to choose from, it can all be a little overwhelming. But don’t fear, ProSwimwear is here to help explain the ins and outs of buying swimwear. These guides will help you figure out what sort of swimsuit to purchase for your needs.
So lets start with men’s swimwear. Nowadays men are not constricted to wearing traditional “Speedo” style swim briefs at the pool, there are many different swimwear styles to choose from that apply to a range of different purposes.
Swim Jammers are tightly fitting knee length swim…
