Twinning with Benny the Teddy

Monday, December 17, 2018

          Greetings, fashionistas!  Say, "hello" to my new teddy bear friend, Benny.  Isn't he just adorable?  My H&Moschino jewelry pieces finally arrived in the mail about a couple weeks ago, and I finally found time to style them and feature them in a photo shoot.  Moschino is known for their cute teddy bear prints and accessories, so I decided to create my own teddy bear backpack to match the bold gold jewelry pieces from their collection with H&M.  

         Before I go into my outfit details, I wanted to talk a little bit about how I constructed this backpack just in case any of you crafty fashionistas wanna give it a try.  First off, I am a novice sewer, so I took to YouTube for sewing advice and direction.  Here's the link to the video I used for this project.  I've taken a couple of sewing classes in my life, but I sometimes forget how to properly thread the sewing machine.  With that said, if you are a beginner sewer, this Pinterest-worthy project may be a bit of a challenge (like it was for me), but I have faith in you.  Try it out- just don't use a teddy bear that means a lot to you.  Well, at least not on your first attempt.       

         Okay, now onto the styling portion of this outfit post!  I chose to pair this luxuriously soft faux fur teddy bear coat with a long sleeve turtleneck top, high-waisted flare jeans, platform heels, and a baker boy hat.  

         As for jewelry, these H&Moschino gold peace earrings steal the show!  I opted for a gold chunky chain link bracelet (also from the H&Moschino collection) and a simple gold ring. Since the earrings make such a statement, I chose subtle accent pieces.   

         Lastly, I selected a black and gold pair of sunnies to complete the look.  So, what do you think of me twinning with Benny the bear?  Let me know in the comments below!  Until my next post, I am sending you all lots of love from my heart to yours!

  2. A cute girl with a cute teddy bear. Quite fitting. This is a very cool outfit styled well with the coat, flared jeans, and peep-toe shoes. You smile as cutely as ever. The earrings are a bit too much for me, but I think this is a very cool outfit.
