Excited to announce that CLAD & CLOTH is having an Open House event! I’m hauling everything down to Springville, UT and you’ll be able to try everything on in person. It’s a Christmas miracle! We’ll have new arrivals that haven’t made it to the shop yet and some old favorites. We’re also going to be having some awesome vendors there supplying some yummy treats :). Come to shop or just to socialize with fashionable people like yourself. I’d love to meet you!
We’re trying to get a good count of how many people are coming so RSVP in the comments if you’re planning on it!
clad & cloth new arrivals
Just did a new shoot with Brooke Williams from Two in June Blog and Emmy Lowe Photography. These ladies are very talented if you couldn’t tell already and I’m so grateful for them making my vision possible. This is how I imagined the clad & cloth girl.
New arrivals are in the shop along with all the beautiful photos taken by Emmy Lowe Photography. You should check em’ out.
Took some pictures of these lovely ladies yesterday for the new arrivals coming into the shop. These ladies are babes!
Long time no see. Seriously though, it’s been a long time. It’s been busy around the Warr house with starting an online boutique, driving across the country, and wedding stuff.
My sister’s wedding was this past weekend, which was a blast! I love weddings but I only love them when it’s not mine own (that sounded weird, I’ve only been married once). Hear me out. You get to talk to who you want to talk to and you get to stuff your face with delicious food without. It’s a no brainer.
Sometimes I feel like Ron Swanson at weddings. When there’s a buffet line I go straight for the meat. I play a strategic game called how much expensive meat can I fit into my stomach. It’s not for the faint of heart. I may or may not of eaten an entire prime rib roast this weekend.
I also avoid strangers like the plague. Small talk is the worst. I’d rather stab my eyeballs out than have to endure through small talk. Since it was my sister’s wedding I pretty much knew everyone there so it wasn’t bad.
Well that’s all I have to say. See ya on the flippity flip (that was for all my Office lovers out there).
One thing I’ve always wanted to do, is be a Fashion/Merchandiser buyer for Anthropologie (or some other awesome store). It was something that I never really said out loud because I thought it would sound silly and maybe completely unattainable for someone like me. Today I’m happy to say that I’m actually doing what I want to be doing. I’ve become my own Buyer for my own shop. I’m feeling pretty high on life because not many people get to say that. Anyway, I just wanted to show you guys what I’ve been up to for the last month. So, for the first time ever, I’m here to introduce you to The “clad&cloth” girl.
Now let me tell you a little bit about her. The “clad & cloth” girl is tastefully dressed, modest, bold, and unique. The “clad & cloth” girl is more than her clothes and never hides behind scantily bits of fabric. She is smart and kind. She is daring and respectful. She is courageous and gentle. She is calm, cool and collected. She is your best self. Welcome to your new wardrobe.
Here are some of my favorite picks from the shop.
Here’s another sneek peak for a Darby Smart kit that I’m designing! I love how this one turned out! I promise to let you know when this one comes out too!
This is a little sneak peak of the DIY leather clutch I designed for Darby Smart. Darby Smart puts together DIY kits so you can make them at home, pretty fun stuff. I’ve had a lot of people ask where they can buy leather, so I thought this kit would be perfect. I’ll keep you updated on when this kit will be up for sale! Woohoo!
How to make Lightbulb Terrariums. I found these lightbulb vases at Hobby Lobby and knew I had to make a project out of them. For this project I recycled a lot of my old DIY supplies, so I spent under $15.
- Lightbulb Vases
- Air plant
- Green Moss
- Little rocks
- White String
1. Make your terrariums. I divided up the rocks equally and then poured those in first. I then added the moss and air plant.
2. Thread your string through the hole on top of the lightbulb vase. Tie a knot at the end of the string and screw the top back on.
3. Hang your terrariums from the ceiling. I used little clear hooks and then tied the string to the hook.
If you don’t want to hang them they also look great in a book shelf or even as a book stopper.

Now that we have that out of the way, let’s talk about paint. But seriously, I’m going to talk about paint. And before you start throwing tomatos and calling me names like, “Corporate sellout!” or “Stupid blogger face” (sadly that is the second thing that came to mind) for doing this sponsored post, hear me out.
I’ve been helping Anthropologie open their new store in Columbia, Maryland (which I’ll tell you more about another day) and I’ve been inspired to decorate or at least start trying. One thing Anthropologie does really well (amongst the million other things) is taking something very unique and making it look effortlessly matched with a room. Rarely does Anthropologie stick with a room full of white walls. When Ace Hardware came around asking if I’d do this post I got a little excited because, well, they’re paying me, but also because I really needed to do some home decor research before I head home at the end of the summer. So without further delay, this post is to show you how to do a bright colored wall, namely blue painted walls. If you don’t want to paint your walls blue by the end of this post, then I’ll eat some cake. If you do paint your walls blue by the end of this post, then I’ll still eat some cake. Either way I win because I will be eating cake.
I picked out some of my favorite blue paint colors and displayed them nicely for you. These also match the colors in the pictures below if you wanted to do something similar.
1. I had to include a picture of how Anthro oooobviously. I love how they paired the bold prints of the chair and rug with the paint color. In this way the paint color compliments the furniture but doesn’t overshadow it.
2. I love this one. First of all, I love the abundance of nature light coming into the room. For me this room is all about smart choices when it comes to color combinations. The blue walls compliment the wood floor and actually make it look more vibrant for a comfortable look.
3. Mmmm. This is good. Sky blue can look really cheesy but it is done so well here. This is for the folks that don’t want to go too dark but want to experiment with some color. The other darker blues in the room mute the wall color a little bit, making it look perfectly suited for this room.
4. You can’t go wrong with a wall gallery (well, yes you can). I love how just one wall is painted blue, almost as if it’s part of the wall gallery. This is the perfect compromise for someone who wants to try new wall paint colors but doesn’t want to apply that to their whole house. This is probably something I’ll do in the future, try one wall at first and see where it goes from there.
Well folks, I’m done. I’m going to go eat some cake.
