In a time where the economy is not getting any better, yet my creativity and patience, seem to be thriving, I decided to compile a list of DIY's. I was inspired by many other blogs who have jumped onto this creative train before me and had great success. I did my first today. I was inspired by an early post picture (i.e. Balmain) and did a bleach/tyedye job on a pair of skinnies today! The process proved to be really easy and was all done during my break from classes today. I will post a picture as soon as possible to show the results! What the results have shown me though, is that DIY's are fun, easy, and much less painful on my wallet!

NEXT UP: I would like to recreate/invent some new pieces accessories.

  • Studded shoes

  • A dip/dye sheath

  • an ornate tulle and jeweled bib necklace

  • a studded black bag

  • a military-inspired jacket

  • a holey-webby sweater

I am currently working on the sweater. It's an interesting process, but I think I have come across a breakthrough in technique and will pick up the needed supplies tomorrow! Also, I am feeling a much needed trek off to do some vintage shopping. I need some new basics to work with! It's such a spirit lifter; and with the lackluster weekend I had, I need it.
