“Rooms 2 Wear” – Exotic Eclectic & Glamour Girl

A little while back Holly (of decor8 blog) and I had a creative brainstorming session. The result of that lovely conversation is what we’d now like to introduce to you all…”Rooms 2 Wear” (a creative challenge)!

Here’s how it works: from time to time Holly will assemble a “room” in a style that currently inspires her… and then I will translate it into a fashionable counterpart.  We’ll both post our collections on our blogs…. “Rooms 2 Wear!”  Tada!

We’d love for you to play along too!  Create a room from my look or a fashionable outfit inspired by Holly’s room (those of you without Photoshop could use Polyvore), then email your translation to me (please include links for each item you use) and I’ll post my favorite translations here on Creature Comforts!

Holly and I are busy ladies, but we are determined to bring Room 2 Wear to you lovely readers as often as we can.  As Holly put it: “stay tuned, ’cause you never know when Rooms 2 Wear will strike again.”

Now, head right on over to decor8 for links to all the goodies in Holly’s amazing rooms!

As soon as I saw this adorable photo over on flickr I just knew I had to find out more.
It turns out that these note cards were hand-pierced (sounds a lot harder than it is) by Evie… and because she’s so sweet, she even created a free template for this project on her blog: Evie S. – Things of Beauty, so that we can all join in on the fun! Thanks Evie!

Tip: Don’t have time to try out the tutorial right now… just download the template and save it for when you can!  You’ll be glad you planned ahead!
