Hi Mr. Kate, I live in an apartment with nearly no closet space and I was thinking of using those awesome industrial garment racks costumers use. They are not terribly attractive bedroom decor, though. What are your thoughts?
Answer: Hi Shelly! I know how it is to have little closet space and it suuucks, especially for us gals that like ample clothes and shoes! I personally love the look of industrial garment racks – The basic elements of industrial decor are metal and wood…other key features can be salvaged wood and a rustic patina to the metal – but they can be hard to decorate around if you’re not a neat person. If you are a neat person, meaning you have limited hanging clothes and you keep everything orderly, garment racks, as a decorative element in a room, can be a great option. I would suggest keeping the decor in your room muted and minimal since the clothes will bring in a lot of color and texture. You can try organizing your clothes by color or type to make it look more like a store rack and less hodge podge. The following photos are inspiration for using garment racks in your room decor… however, if you are a messy person or not confident that you can keep your rack looking neat and decorative, I would suggest hanging a ceiling mounted, sliding curtain track in front of your rack of clothes (assuming it’s in a corner or against a wall) and using the curtain as a false wall to hide your garment rack but keep it easily accessible. You could also make a false wall out of wood palettes, etc. see some more ideas for solutions like this in Decorating Small Spaces.
If you can find a garment rack with a base like the one above this will substantiate the piece and give you an area to put shoes so they are not on the floor.
Another option it to totally commit to making a room into a partial closet by lining the walls with garment racks and shoe racks for storage…maaaybe don’t throw them all over the floor, although I have a tendency to do that a lot.
Minimalist clothing selection always makes a rack look better…however that may be unrealistic for the clothes horses out there, me included! If only I was that zen and low maintenance!
Looove this garment rack made out of sticks and branches – if you’re handy with tools, try rigging your own rustic rack!
If you’re trying to save space, look for a rolling rack with multiple levels and shelf at the bottom like I mentioned above. Another great space saving option is a Closet as Headboard basically showing how you can incorporate the rack into the decor of the room. Note how the rest of the room is white and minimal so the clothes are the only thing bringing color and texture.
DIY your own industrial garment rack using pipe supplies like A Beautiful Mess did!
Other uses for rolling racks: As a curtain rod or chandelier hanger!
If you don’t love the look of the metal, wrap your rolling rack in fabric! Fabric covered hangers (DIYable) add an eclectic touch.
What are your thoughts on industrial closet decor? How would you use a garment rack to decorate or organize your space? Leave a comment below! Good luck with your rack Shelly!
It’s Summer and vests are perfect to layer up outfits while still keeping you cool and farmer’s tan safe. My obsession with faux flowers is quickly becoming certifiable – case in point: Flower Twinkle Lights and Rose Crown – and I love this DIY that uses little faux rose-buds to glam up a basic jean vest. If you have an old jean jacket languishing in your closet, it could be perfect for this project – or, do what we did and find one for $7 at your local thrift.
I like pairing jean vests with lightweight dresses, I like the juxtaposition of the denim and girly and it also satisfies my 90′s nostalgia. Interpret this DIY in your own way using whatever color flowers or other decorative elements to jazz up a jean vest…ooo, imagine a black jean vest with white flowers!
bleach – optional if you want to lighten the denim color
faux flowers – we got ours in a bunch from the silk flower section at Michael’s crafts store.
cut off the sleeves of your jacket. tip: cut one side first, then line up the sleeve with the other side and cut along the edge so the sides are even
if you want to bleach the vest lighter, wash the vest in the washing machine with about two cups of bleach, depending on how light you want the vest – see this post where I bleach jean shorts in a tub of water to create the perfect pair of distressed jean shorts
dry vest in dryer – this will also fray your edges along where you cut the sleeves
plan your lay-out for the flowers (using your scissors, trim the flowers off the stems if they came on stems)
using your fabric glue, put a small amount on the bottom of the flower and place it on the corner of the collar, hold down. continue with the rest of the flowers until you’ve created the look you like.
Cowabunga dude! I like comical clothing and a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle tank top with fringe is rather hilar. I actually didn’t DIY this shirt but it is sooo DIYable to cut fringe like this in a long shirt: by just cutting strips with a scissor and then stretching the strips so they curl and get stringy – much like the technique used to make the t-shirt scarf. Pairing the Ninja Turtle shirt with a vintage Native American necklace from my grandma seemed even more ironic and delighted me on this OOTD day. I colorblocked the rest of the outfit, based off some hints of color from the shirt and ‘holy Michelangelo, I’m dressed!’
Treat your nails like tiny canvases! I love the look of hand painted flowers, anything that looks organic and “sketched” really tickles my fancy. This hand-painted, floral nail art is easy, I promise! Don’t get intimidated by it’s beauty (haaa) the technique of using the artist acrylic paint and the tiny brush is actually really forgiving. Unlike regular nail polish, the acrylic paint doesn’t run so you can just get your little dots down for your petals and a few swipes for your stems and leaves and ta da, you’re ready for the Louvre (silent eeee). Watch the video above for the full tutorial and my bad French accent…also, don’t get nightmares from my tiny soul patch, sometimes a girl forgets to shave!
nail polish for base aka your canvas – I chose white
acrylic paint from the art or crafts store in the colors of your choice
thin, tapered paint brush
clear nail polish top coat
piece of paper or paper plate to use as your pain palette
cup of water
Paint 1 or 2 coats of your base coat and let dry fully
Lay out your paint colors in little dollops on your paper plate
Dunk your paintbrush in water to taper it into a nice point
Start painting with your main (outer) flower color – I used bright pink- and paint little lines/dots in kind of a spiral pattern to create a rose look – don’t try to make it perfect!
Fill in your flower with some dots of your inner flower color – I used yellow **rinse your brush in the water in between each color so the colors don’t blend too much
Create the stem or leaf with your green by drawing little lines and/or tear-drop leaf shapes around your flowers
Repeat with all your colors for a second coat if you want more dimension
Let the art paint dry and seal with 1 or 2 coats of nail polish top coat
There are ENDless kinds of bookends! I love home accessories or “shelf jewelry” as I sometimes call it and bookends are the best because they’re decorative and functional! Here is a round-up of some of our fave bookends. Hopefully these pics inspire you to get quirky and creative with propping up your books. Share your ideas with us in the comments below!
Lately, I’ve been thinking about success, and what is means to have ambition but balance that “don’t take yourself too seriously” thing while also doing exactly the opposite and believing in yourself HARD, so you can accomplish your goals. I looked up the definition of ambition…
1. an earnest desire for some type of achievement or distinction, as power, honor, fame, or wealth, and the willingness to strive for its attainment: Too much ambition caused him to be disliked by his colleagues.
2. the object, state, or result desired or sought after: The crown was his ambition.
3. desire for work or activity; energy: I awoke feeling tired and utterly lacking in ambition.
verb (used with object)
4. to seek after earnestly; aspire to.
So all those definitions make sense, thank you dictionary.com but notice the example sentence about some dude who was “disliked” by his colleagues because he had too much ambition. Ahh jeez, so what you’re telling me is, I have to be like the Goldilocks of ambition; don’t have too much, or too little but juuuuust enough. While pondering over my porridge, I decided that I balance or soften my ambition with my self deprecation…or at least I like to think I do. And that this may be the female way.
See, I’ve always been a very ambitious person. I grew up in LA, surrounded by lots of ambitious, and as a result, successful people, including my dad. I observed my dad nurture his career to great success by working hard, having luck and I think, being ambitious. He went to work every day and often worked late because he had so much to do. He would come home after my mom, my sister and I had eaten dinner and I’d sit with him while he ate his plate of food – that always looked way better than my dinner, even though it was the exact same thing I’d eaten hours earlier. Between his bites, and me stealing bites, he’d tell me about his day and I’d tell him about mine. The ever-present knowledge was that he was out in this world called “business” that I only knew about via his one-sided phone conversations, many of which took place in the car. My dad drove me to school for a couple years while I was in first and second grade. He had one of the first car phones that had the big fat cord and nestled in a giant cradle between the seats. On the 30 minute ride to school, we’d sing songs and then he’d get on the phone and yell at people. I was young, so I rarely caught on to the content of the phone calls, but the tone was evident and sticks with me today; it was important, he was important, and the people he talked to listened when he spoke.
I wanted that, I want that, I want to work and build a career for myself that has some importance. I don’t think my business chops were nurtured much by my upbringing. I don’t remember being told that I could be a business woman, etc. “You’re so creative” is what I was told a lot, which obviously, I live to this day, having created a career for myself where my creativity is tantamount. But the world of “business” seemed out of reach as I think it does for a lot of females. We’re not really taught to be dog eat dog and aggressive. If we raise our voice too much we’re labeled a “shrew” (“bitch” in olde English). So like most things in life, we figure out how to manipulate ourselves, maneuver and observe, compliment and giggle, all the while being keen on what we want: success. Most of us don’t choose that straight and narrow path like boys who can just charge up the ladder like they did with their toy fire truck back in the day. Us gals have swagger and I’d say, the key to disguising your cut-throat ambition is the above mentioned ability to make fun of yourself…at least that’s what I do.
My business is based a lot on humor, it is called Mr. Kate, after all. I try to infuse humor in most of the posts we do as well as our weekly YouTube videos, which hopefully make you all laugh. That humor is my guise, my bumper that shadows my ambition. I always remind myself that the people I like and respect most, have the ability to laugh at themselves. Be the first one to laugh at yourself before others can – take ownership of your flaws through your humor, I think it will boost your ambition. Humor makes the blunderings and falls along the way, not hurt as bad, it helps you bounce back and continue onward and upward.
I realize I just wrote a really serious post about humor – shit, I should have interjected some fart jokes. I guess it’s my little secret that I’m sharing with you guys that I’m actually a really serious person. The yin to my yang, the beauty mark to my mustache, is that I’m intensely serious. Most people wouldn’t deduce that upon first meeting me. They see my weird, quirky, loud, and funny side, but I have ambition and goals in business. I want to grow my company and brand and be important. I want to inspire people to live their most creative, expressive and successful lives! I want to have fun doing it, but I also want to get on my car phone and yell at some people and have them take me seriously…like, for reals.
I’m intrigued to hear about you and your ambitions! I pose this question to you: What are your ambitions and how are you working towards achieving them? Let’s all learn from each other and reach our goals! Comment below and share with me and the other readers, fart jokes and all! Thanks!
It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a moon in my shirt! A DIY, lace-insert moon with no sewing necessary, that is. You know how I love hem tape and it’s iron-on nature which means I don’t have to take the sewing machine down from the really high shelf in my storage closet – so high I need Joey or a chair to reach. I also love lace and inserting things…mmmkay, I mean, I like cut-outs! This is a great DIY to update/upcycle an old shirt, or any article of clothing (a jean jacket would be way cute too!), it’s good for warm weather for air flow, and of course you can do any shape you like…maybe a full moon… aka a circle.
t-shirt (or piece of clothing – preferable a shirt or jacket)
lace – we used black but use any color you like – from the fabric store
stitch witchery (iron-on hem tape – from the fabric, craft store or kmart, target, etc.)
printed picture of a crescent moon or any shape you want to insert
turn your shirt inside out and place the cut out picture or template of your shape on your shirt where you want the insert – **remember which direction you want the shape facing when your shirt is turned right side out again.
trace the shape using your pen
cut out the shape
put the lace over the moon- make sure the moon is completely covered – we just cut a rectangle of lace – no need to make it the exact shape since it’s on the inside of the shirt. **you want some overlap of the lace to adhere with hem tape.
use the stitch witchery (hem tape) to attach the lace per the iron settings on the stitch witchery package – **sometimes placing a damp cloth between the iron and the lace/tape makes it easier.
iron on the stitch witchery on all 4 corners of the lace and make sure there are no wrinkles or gaps
This past Saturday, I led a “Moodbarding with Mr. Kate” workshop at Create and Cultivate which is an annual inspiration and networking event put on by No Subject. I created a powerpoint presentation (which I hadn’t done since college) and spoke about the creative process, specifically finding that spark of random inspiration, trusting it and cultivating a cohesive “map” – which is most easily expressed on a moodboard.
I laid out a table full of a random barf of items from broken pieces of tile, fabric swatches and stones to magazines and toy soldiers. The goal was to make sense of a jumble of disparate elements which is similar to any creative challenge when you’re pulling together ideas. I told the group of 50 that if they didn’t have a specific project they wanted to moodboard, they could make an essence board for themselves – basically YOU on a board using elements that express your aesthetic. Below is the essence board that I created for myself…
This is a moodboard I created for the little girls room I designed recently – Electric Granny Chic is what I called it with a DIY dried grapevine chandelier which I made on the board out of twine and broken pieced of champagne cork. I challenged people to think about the materials in new ways, instead of just using magazine clippings try surprising yourself with your creativity.
The finished room and the driftwood chandelier – see more photos of that room makeover here.
Photos from the Create and Cultivate event…
My friends Geri Hirsch and Erin Falconer from Leaf TV conducted a workshop with DIY painted pop bottle vases… Joey painted his tulips…he had an Queen of Hearts moment…
Fun with the giant balloon photo booth…
Adrianna from A Cozy Kitchen shows off her moodboard and also did a workshop on photographing food…see my cookies and milk pic below!
Writing with lipgloss! Creative!
All of the inspired moodboards drying on the floor – everyone’s was so different and so unique!
I won the flower raffle at dinner – Joey entered me and I didn’t know…he always wins raffles! He won a year’s supply of toilet paper last year.
I encourage you all to make a moodboard for yourself or any creative project. Get your glue gun and random stuff and make magic happen!
My obsession with faux flowers is growing. I love the idea of taking these things, that are normally associated with Granny Chic – maybe a dusty bouquet in a basket near a window with lace curtains, etc. – and making them into funky style (Black Rose headband) or home decor statements. Yes, it’s just about Summer, but don’t retire those December holiday lights, instead get you to the crafts store for some faux flowers and make a romantic strand of flower twinkle lights! I styled the strand around my headboard and vanity but you could use it anywhere – a bunch of them outside for a summer wedding or party would be faaaaab too!
strand of white twinkle lights – preferably with a white cord
hot glue gun
bunch of silk/faux flowers – from the craft store – in the color of your choice
faux leafs – usually come with the flowers
white spray paint (not pictured) – optional if you want leaves on your strand too
Ready for a monday adventure! This is the dress I wore at the end of the DIY Travel Vanity video which I paired with a Boater Hat . I’ve had this dress for so long, I got it at a thrift store and cut it into a mini dress to balance the blouse -y sleeves. Polkadots are fun and they always make me think of a vintage vibe so pairing them with red lipstick is always a go, in my opinion. Vintage dresses are a great option for your Summer vacations – pick something lightweight that you can wear during the day with a pair of flats or dress up at night with some heels and lipstick. This dress is navy but I paired it with black shoes, first, because I don’t have navy shoes and second, cuz I like to break the rules! …I’m soooo baaaaad…I need a time out…
Nine years ago, I bought a vintage suitcase that was retro-fitted with a mirror on the inside of the lid. I use it all the time in videos – see it in this Colorful Side Braid video and the recent Braided Sock Bun video – but it’s large and not practically portable. So, inspired by the idea of a vintage suitcase that also serves as a traveling vanity, we found this small hard-case, mini suitcase at the flea market for $10 and made it into a traveling vanity/cosmetic/make-up case, complete with large mirror and storage elastics, to take everywhere for your beauty needs!
vintage suitcase or old hard case suitcase you have around
assess the interior of your suitcase and decide where to put the mirror and where to create a smooth surface to adhere the mirror – gently rip out inner layer, if needed, to create a smooth surface.
use chalk or marker to outline scrap leather or cloth and cut out the shape
apply E-6000 to scrap leather or cloth and cover any raw areas of the interior of the case – let dry
apply glass, metal, and more glue to back of mirror and press and hold mirror where you want it to stick and let it dry
cut piece(s) of elastic band to size for the interior of your case and glue down with E-6000 using your fingers as a spacer – keep in mind the amount of room you want to be able to fit all your cosmetics. **If your suitcase opens horizontally and you don’t need the elastics to keep things in place, try using dividers or pouches to keep your cosmetics safe and organized.
insert makeup and brushes into place and your case is ready to travel the world!
If you look at a color wheel, there are opposite colors and analogous colors. Opposite colors are just that; opposite to each other on the color wheel ex: orange and blue, red and green, etc. Analogous colors are next to each other on the color wheel ex: orange and red, blue and green, etc. and are thus closer related in hue and more subtle when paired together. Turquoise and mint are wonderful examples of analogous colors and I’m a huge fan of both, so for this outfit, I wore all mint and accented with turquoise jewelry paired with bright gold jewelry. Gold and turquoise are almost opposite colors and I think it’s a delicious combo too!
Howdy Mr. Kate!! So, I am going to be going on a mission trip here pretty soon, and I am not necessarily guarenteed a shower every day/every other day. So, my hair might be pretty grungy in beautiful Australia! Would you happen to have any ideas of cute hair tutorials for some greasy, grungy hair?
And from Curly Jordi:
Hey Mr. Kate! You’re a great fashion inspiration of mine! I’ve been wearing my hair curly lately and I’m not sure what to do with third day curls. I have thick, curly hair, much like yours, except it’s medium length and FRIZZY!! I use a wand to touch up my curls and the third day in they start looking a little bit depressed. I’m wondering if you have any ideas of what to do with third-day curls. XX Jorden
I totally hear you Zoe and Curly Jordi! I usually only wash my hair every 3 to 4 days. My hair is naturally curly and since I dye it too, it tends to be on the dry side. However, my roots still get greasy as my non-washing days progress (I take body showers still, people!) – so here are some of my favorite greasy/dirty hair dos that work great for straight, wavy or curly hair. I usually wear my hair in a messy bun on the third or forth day of grime. I also love using dry shampoo to soak up the oil and refresh my hair, my favorite is the Dry Cleaning Spray by Kevin Murphy – it smells great and doesn’t leave it looking grey.
Top Knots are one of my favorite up-dos for dirty hair – obviously I rock them a lot, hence the numerous photos, mostly from one angle – can you tell my favorite side? My tip with top knots is don’t try to brush your hair, leave it loose around your hairline so it looks disheveled. The placement of the bun is important too, I think they look best and most “stylish” when the bun is on the top of your head, not further back on the crown, literally a top knot!
A fancy headband can glam up any dirty hair do!
Braids are always a good idea. You can add in flowers, barrettes, headbands, etc. This one above is The Messy Danish and a side fishtail is a great solution for curly hair that’s too frizzy to tame.
Messy Bun! Use a sock to create a fuller look than the top knot.
Warm weather means it’s picnic time!! Picnics are a fun and intimate way to spend some quality time outdoors with friends and lovers – yes, plural loversss. I’d say my favorite picnic memories are from one summer when my mom rented an apartment in Paris to take classes at the Sorbonne and my sister and I would eat baguettes and cheese in the Luxembourg Gardens under the trees. (sigh), I wish I was there right now – but I’m not, I’m home, it’s cloudy outside, and there’s some dude installing a new washer and dryer and making a lot of noise.
So, in lieu of being in Paris, eating fresh bread in dappled sunlight, let’s get inspired for our pending Summer picnics with this roundup of the dreamiest picnics. You’ll notice that the common element in these photos and I think, the key to making a picnic feel luxurious, is having items that you would normally put indoors as part of your outdoor picnic i.e. rugs, pillows, real plates and glasses, candles, etc.
A beach picnic! You could also cozy up in a little fort like the one I made in BEACHella! Bringing a rug to the beach is the ultimate luxury. You can put a plastic tarp down underneath the rug to protect the fibers from all the sand. Pillows and some beautiful food on beautiful plates and you’ll never want to leave!
Bohemian picnics, someplace rustic, with eclectic elements such as old crates, mis-matched and colorful pillows, candles, rugs, birdcages, crates, blankets, overflowing flower bouquets, ribbons in the trees and a hot man sitting next to you on your cozy blanket.
Chic tailgating picnic! Think about a creative location to bring some fluffy pillows, blanket and a basket with yummy treats – I wouldn’t advise doing this while the truck is moving however – safety first!
Don’t forget the music! A portable record player adds a vintage touch and books are great weights to hold down blankets and such.
I realize platform sneakers, wedge sneakers, etc. were all the rage last year. But you know what happens? You like a trend, you buy into it, meaning you buy multiple items that fit into that trend – case in point my extensive collection of elevated sneakers – and now you have them… for good! Since I’m not one to neurotically follow the trends, like, I don’t throw away something that I’ve spent my hard earned dolla bills on, just because it’s “so last season” – no, instead, I keep them close to my heart and on my body (because I still like them), by finding new and fun ways to style outfits incorporating them into my daily style choices. Henceforth, some styling ideas for your platform and wedge sneakers…let’s keep this thing going!!!
A little black and white to class up these bizarro, converse-esque (they’re ASOS) platform sneaks I have. Black and white is always an easy go-to when you’re in a style rut. I played against type with this outfit and by pairing these sneakers with a button-down and snazzy glasses, I feel like I could go get some serious shit done in this outfit.
The Deets: sneakers: ASOS, shorts: Kimberly Ovitz, top and sunglasses: Urban Outfitters
Who says wedge sneakers can’t be dressy?…okay, so this isn’t totally dressy but I feel like I would be taken seriously in a business meeting in this outfit. I mean, maybe I would put a tank top under my see-through shirt, but in lieu of modesty, I think this outfit shows that you can take the sporty-ness out of wedge sneakers. Half up half down hair and my Mr. Kate statement Vertebrae earrings elevate the look to “I mean business and then after you can take me out for a cocktail” status.
The Deets: sneakers: Forever 21, pants: Zara, top: American Apparel, jewelry: Mr. Kate
I love this animal-centric project! Call me childish, call me cat-obsessed (I know, they’ve been all over the blog these days) but I love adding a playful element to interior design and this project totally achieves that! This project uses the little plastic animals you can find at toy or craft stores. I used zoo animals, cut in half and painted metallic gold to mount within a frame for wall art in the little girl’s room design I did on Home Made Simple. For this project we used plastic domestic cats, glued to the tops of old olive and jam jars that I had lounging in my cabinet. Yes, I keep everything, including old jars, for just-in-case moments like this when you want to create cat jars! Call me a hoarder or call me a hoarder on a mission, well I guess most hoarders think they have plans for their stuff…but I’m a hoarder that actually follows through with those plans!…sometimes.
These jars are great to use anywhere you need some organizing. Use them in the kitchen for your dry goods, or in the bathroom for your cosmetics and cotton balls, etc. or try them in a kid’s room for crayons and such or a craft’s room for organizing your supplies. The animal and organization possibilities are endless!
white spray paint primer
spray paint in the color(s) of your choice
matte finish spray paint – optional if you want a matte look like we did, you could just go with glossy, satin or flat spray paint
glass jars with flat lids – I had a variety of old olive, jam and sauerkraut jars
mini plastic cats or whatever animal you like! (we found ours at the craft store)
Sag is not bad! Just read How To Get That Saggy Boob Look and you’ll know what I mean. I’ve worn my fair share of saggy (baggy? drop-crotchy?) pants…denim ones, striped ones, convertible harem, patterned and soft, and army green! My styling tip for these drop-daring pants is to embrace their comfort factor and pair them with an equally comfy tee or tank and then glam up the look with some heels and a statement necklace. This is the outfit I wore in my Draw My Life video and these are the same style pants as the green ones I wore in last week’s post (both from Zara)… when there are multiple colors of a piece of clothing I like, I usually have to get more than one – I plan on wearing these comfy, slouchy and colorful pants alll Summer! I also have an addiction to false eyelashes…have you noticed?
