Look for Amanda every other Thursday, as she serves up recipes (especially desserts), outfit suggestions, do-it-yourself home and fashion projects and the trials and travails of a wannabe television host and personality.
On my recent and very fashionable trip to Scottsdale Fashion Week (view the video here), I was in embellishment heaven. Tory Burch, Betsey Johnson, Ted Baker, even various designers from massive retailer Neiman Marcus dazzled the runway with feathers, shimmer and sequins. There were tons of drool worthy pieces but one of my most favorite pieces spotted on the runway, well at least the most DIY-able, was a sequin trimmed cardigan from Tory Burch. Not having the luxury to blow $325 on a cardigan with a bit of sparkle on it, I put on my DIY-cap and made my way to JoAnn’s. I used an old boyfriend cardigan I picked up at Old Navy for $20.
