Hands up how many of you have been reaching for the Winter Wardrobe stash that’s been packed away since March? I know I have. Coming into November and I need some serious fashion inspiration for the coming months without blowing my budget. (I feel a trip to the local charity shop coming on!) Enter the ever trusty white vest top. Most of us have closet space specifically designated for our rainbow of vest/sleeveless tops and it’s time they were making the transition into the cooler season, but still leaving us feeling glam and on trend. The magic key is a […]
I just found this great tutorial for refashioning a tshirt into a slashed weave top. It was so very simple I ran upstairs, got this old tshirt out and just went for it (hence the reason it’s a bit jagged – I didn’t wait to go buy a decent pair of scissors to make the cutting neater). This took about 10 minutes and as I said, it will look much better next time when I’ve got a proper pair of fabric scissors and I’ll take a bit more care over how straight my weaving is, I do love the result […]
As I get older, there are times when I have to really think about the styles I can and can’t get away with, so when I saw this tutorial for upcycling a tie into a necklace it got my mind whirling. I love the whole preppy look it has, but it is too young…. I’m going to say no, purely because I love the look of it, especially when worn with the white tshirt, it just looks fabulous and also because of the relative ease in which it can be made. I agree with Shelley, it would also look fantastic […]
With summer on the way out, I’ve been looking out all my longer sleeved tops and slowly packing away the halter and strappy tops ready for the cooler weather. If there is one thing I have in abundance, it’s strappy vest tops, so this tutorial from love Maegan has come along at exactly the right time. Turning a simple vest into a beautiful lace top like this is a great idea for revamping my Autumn wardrobe and giving me a real feminine, soft tailoring garment that I can use for multi-puropses, lunch out, meeting, post work drinks, it just goes […]
DIY Fashion, how to make your own couture studded outfits, so very simple it will be hard not to get carried away!
I was having a sneaky peek through wiwt.com as I am prone to do, trying to keep up with what people are wearing and feasting my eyes on how these fashionistas are putting together their own looks with current fashion. Now as you can tell from my previous post, I am gaining a serious interest in all things “studded”, I don’t know what it is that appeals to me… perhaps I just like looking at shiny metal objects… I am easily entertained! But I can see myself in quite a few of the items and I can also see how […]
DIY Couture – Make a Gorgeous Alexander McQueen Inspired Clutch Bag, the perfect accessory for a night out.
Every girl knows you need a fabulous bag to set off your favourite outfit and I have found the perfect DIY project to make your very own designer inspired clutch bag, using nothing but a place-mat, some glue, 2 zips, 28 studs and 2 studs. I am still waiting on my own studs to arrive that I bought online, I’ve got some silver and some gold on the way… fingers crossed they’ll be here soon. I love this particular print design as well, as I have a lovely black dress and plain black heels that are screaming out for a […]
