DIY PAINTED DENIM

DIY PAINTED DENIM

It seems like I have caught the DIY flu. After that beaded boyfriend denim I got inspired by the Dries van Noten Fall 2012 Menswear show (this look to be exact (seriously if I was a man I would want to wear Dries head to toe, always)) to do another little creative something with denim …

DIY BEADED DENIM

It’s been a while since I last DIY’d and even though it always makes me feel like I am back in kindergarten, I do like to get all crafty every once in a while. I love how it automatically adds a little something extra, that personal touch that often makes an outfit. And so I …

Less of the ‘minimalist’ look that I usually tend to go for, more of a city girl look. It is not often you see me in a light pair of skinny jeans, I guess it is because of the light-jeans-do-me-no-good syndrome a lot of us women struggle with. On the other hand light jeans are …

REWORKED SUNGLASSES

REWORKED SUNGLASSES

It is not often that I get super enthusiastic by a DIY. I have tried some myself and I think the results were pretty ok, but it does not come near the DIY’s Ivania Carpio from Love Aesthetics is executing. The sliced shades she did last week -inspired by the Grey Ant The Foundry sunglasses are such …

Thanks to this beautiful weather we have been enjoying here for the past week, I was finally able to wear my homemade skirt. When I first came up with the idea to DIY this, I never thought it would come out like this. I expected to screw up the denim jacket I used for this …

One statement item can literally do the job for an outfit. Whether it is a necklace that is screaming fancy, a pair of super high printed heels or a pair of tie dye jeans in this case, all you have to do is add the simplest pieces from your wardrobe and you are done. Lindex top, Levi’s jeans …

NAVAJO BELT

NAVAJO BELT

This is the easiest DIY I ever did and will probably ever do. It literally took me five minutes -though finding the perfect ribbon took me longer than that. Supplies: a belt scissors (not pictured) some sort of decorative ribbon (I am not sure what it is called in English) glue for leather nailpolish remover …
