My 'new' old earrings...refashion with 'junk'!

Oh!  I got an invitation for a dinner...
is good news... except...


I'm not prepared!

or...shall I say... 

my 'wardrobe' is not prepared!

I have a few 'little back dress' and 'little black top"

Guess.... nobody will notice that I'm wearing them AGAIN?

And... about accessories....

I don't usually 'hunt' for them during shopping cause' my main target
during shopping are the groceries department and the 'special offer' corner...

The last time I bought a pair of earrings is the time when "Jurassic Park 1" on the cinema!

And now those earrings are as old as those dinos in the movie!

(...Be calm..and have a bar of chocolate...that's my way!)

Today...I'm going to share with you my desperate last minute refashion 
 my old earrings using some 'trash' after enjoying the chocolate!!!

I start with these...
I use the foil from the chocolate wrap
(clean it well...You don't want the ants to crawl up to your neck
during the dinner!)

I love this old pair of earrings...
but I lost some part of the 'diamond's
So, tonight...I'm going to wear them again
with a quick 'refashion'.

What I did is just cut the foil wrap into strips and wrapped
it around the earrings...
(You may secure the wrap with some glue)

And this is what I have...

As there is a saying from Forrest Gump Movie...

"Life is like a box of chocolates ...
You never know what you're gonna get"

Now...What should I wear...
Another 'mission' on the way...
Gotta go, catch up with you all later!

Thanks for drop by!

Love always

  1. That is so awesome! What a wonderful re-do!

  2. What a cool texture! I love the color and the fact that you used trash from a chocolate bar. Thats what I call yummmmy up-cycling, my dear.


  3. I love this. I can't believe you did it with a candy bar wrapper. I have a link party on Wednesdays, and I would love it if you would link this and any other posts. It is called Wednesdays Adorned From Above Link Party. It runs from Wednesday to Sundays.
    I hope to see you there. I am your newest follower, and I would love for your to follow me also. Have a great Day.

  4. So Cool! No one would ever suspect these were made with the foil from a chocolate bar. Very modern looking, too.

  5. Wow, those are very rich looking! Great way to renew the broken earrings - it's always sad when you lose rhinestones, because they are nearly impossible to repair. Love this idea! Also a great excuse to eat more chocolate.

  6. LOL. I totally thought you were just throwing in the towel and eating chocolate instead. Very cute! And can't even tell. Reduce, reuse, recycle. Awesome!

  7. I would never even know that that was a wrapper! How clever! Thanks for sharing!

  8. A chocolate wrapper?! This is literally refashioning with trash! Lol! I vow at your resourcefulness and creativity! You ate a chocolate and its junk gave you a new pair earrings. How cool is that? Could you inspire or give us more idea on what more junks are possible for refashioning? Like a bag of Doritos maybe? =) – Paige @
