DIY Chokers

I wrote off chokers when everyone started rewearing those plastic ones from the 90’s. To be completely honest, I wore one, without fail, from the ages of six to nine. Actually, I still have it! It’s in my baby box right next to the onesie I wore home from the hospital. Even so, I just don’t think they’re that tasteful. Since chokers are here to stay for this season at least, I figured I might as well experiment and make room for them in my style. Here is what I learned:

  1. Don’t wear a choker for the sake of wearing a choker. Make it work.
  2. Layering is your best friend. Combine thin ones with different fabrics or cascading gold chains.
  3. Don’t spend $15 on a choker that you can make with a quick trip to Michael’s.

Seriously, go to Michael’s and buy ribbon/rope/whatever your heart desires and voilà a DIY! I bought suede ribbon, velvet ribbon, and leather cord.

Why I Fast on Mondays

Monday: oh, the duality of it. I love Monday and I also hate it with a deep passion. I hate that it will take a full 5 days for the weekend/nachos to arrive. I hate that I have to answer my emails. I hate that my alarm goes off and wakes me from my Sunday slumber. Yet, once I’m conscious I remember that I love waking up early on a summer Monday, hitting the streets before 8am when the city is still sleepy and heading out for a slow sweat at SLT. I love hitting the re-set button and having another chance to do and be. I also love fasting on Mondays, my chosen day of the week to detox until dinnertime (if you’re forced to begin your week, you may as well dive in head first).
