Studio 5 Ruffled Headband Segment

Hi friends! I was on Studio 5 this last Wednesday here in Salt Lake City! It was a total blast and surprisingly easy…in the sense that I wasn’t a stress case like last time and everything seemed to fall into place quite well! Even with two days notice I’m thrilled with how it all turned out! Thanks mom for taking the girls!

I’ve been getting so many emails asking questions. I thought I’d address many of them here! The segment didn’t allow for me to talk about every little detail so here you go!

Q: Wait? Where do you buy your Broaches?
A: DownEast Clearance Center comes through again!!! All the beautiful broaches I had in the segment were bought for $1.99 at DownEast Clearance Center! They were Ann Taylor and JCrew Accessories.It’s not the regular DownEast but the Clearnace Center in Salt Lake. This location specializes in DownEast Cloths and accessories.

I’ve talked about another DownEast Clearance Center that I LOVE too. This location is the one I adore for all my Pottery Barn finds. Sheets, towels, furniture, rugs, clothing and other Clothing lines like DownEast, JCrew, American Eagle and other designers! Everything is scratch & dent or Monogrammed or slightly off but it’s incredibly usable still and well worth the trip!

Q: What size ribbon was I working with?
A: The Brown Ribbon was 1.5″ thick. It’s my favorite size to use when making a headband for an adult! I use 5/8th” ribbon for the ones I make for my girls! I also made a few with Silk and Satin Ribbon and Lace! Basically anything goes!

Q: Can I make this without a sewing machine?
A: YES!! You can also fold a pleat and glue it down with hot glue to get the same look but you won’t be able to pin a broach through! the glue is just too thick!

Q: What is that Organizer Called? I can’t find it on the IKEA Website!
A: Sadly IKEA doesn’t sell every single item that they sell in their store on line! Because it’s an accessory and a smaller item it’s not online. I’m not even sure what it’s called! But its initial intention is to organize belts and scarves and is on display in the bedroom department. Sorry I’m not much help!

Q: Did you make your Ribbon holder?
A: Yes I did! I have a post about it found HERE!!!!

Q: Where did you get your Outfit? (seriously someone asked this!!)
A: TARGET!!!! Who knew Target had such great clothing for moms!!! I haven’t shopped for cloths for me there in years! But there are some awesome finds! The Blue Ruffled top was a tank top and only $20 and the Gray Sweater thing was also $20 and comes in a ton of other colors. It’s long and drapie in the front. My husband hates it! He said he won’t go out in public with me if I wear it! WHATEVER MIKE! Mr. Fashion Expert himself!The turquoise ring is also from Target!

Q: Does your little girl really sleep in a headband?
A: Funny but yes! That wasn’t just comical banter! Blue sleeps in a headband as often as she can. That morning I had packed up every headband in the house and she about had a nervous breakdown without one. So I dug out of my bag the ugliest one to put her at ease! Seriously folks!!!She has a borderline unhealthy relationship with accessories! Should I be worried? It’s sort of her thing…Skirt with pants! Two shirts and a sweater and a headband to round out the look! Melts my hear I tell ya! She’s got “Punky Power!!!”

ok…that about sums up the Q and A! Thanks for the support people! It’s been exciting sharing this stage of the journey with ya! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Thanks Studio 5 for an awesome day! Brooke, Darren and the entire staff were beyond helpful and made the process so comfortable and fun!! I Can’t wait to do it again!

    I had no idea DownEast had a clearance center. How have I lived here that long and not known? Sheesh!

    I was laughing about your drapey cardigan comment–I have a couple and love them but my husband most definitely does not. He rarely gives an opinion so I thought it was interesting…and as usual I ignored him and wore it anyway! Congrats on Studio 5!

    Becca! I missed this! Granted, I don't usually watch TV. I'm so glad for the internet. That headband is adorable and undoubtably, all those broches are long gone. Funny because my friend and I were planning a trip to SLC tommorrow.

    Do metal headbands hurt your head, or are they comfortable?

    My brother suggested I would possibly like this website.
    He was totally right. This post actually made my day.

    You cann’t believe just how much time I had spent for this info!

    My family always say that I am wasting my time here at net, except I know I am getting know-how every day by reading thes good articles.

    A lot more details on Seaglass by White Light Productions are available on the organization’s
    web site,. Ceramic beads are also available in many bright colours
    and these have been used for centuries to create
    original pieces of handmade jewellery. Handmade items
    are generally far better in more ways than one, and they should be sought out whenever possible.
