I'm kind of loving the vintage-y lace vibe of this summer's style. Its a great way to make any every day look instantly chic, sexy, trendy, and cute all at the same time. I'm especially digging the lacey shoe styles, I think that is so bad-ass and awesome and ahhh I just really need to get a pair.
I was inspired to make this DIY tote bag after I took a trip to the farmer's market and realized I needed a comfortable and lightweight bag to carry all my goodies. I love the way this DIY project turned out and, more importantly, there was no sewing involved! A pillowcase already has all the stitching you need to create this easy and stylish tote bag. The cross-body shoulder strap also makes it super comfortable to carry around all day. Just grab a pillowcase from your dresser, stamp it, give it a couple snips and you've got a custom carry-all tote for your next trip to the market!
You know the shorts I'm talking about.
Wanna learn how to make a super cute and breezy summer top? What if I told you it only cost me about 3.50? And what if I told you it took me about 5 minutes?! I thought so.
Things you need for this DIY: ✝ a long lace dress ( here's mine ) ✝ tape measure ✝ four straight pins ✝ scissors Total time: 30 mins Total cost: $30 for the dress This is the easiest... First, put the dress on and mark with pins the length you want in the front, back and on the sides. I measured 12 inches in front and back and 24 inches on the sides (up from the seam). I have to admit the sides are just a tiny bit higher than I wanted, so I advise you to make it a little longer to be on the safe side.
If you plan to use this tutorial to make part of your halloween costume: I am about to show you how to tie dye your legs... or leggs really. Yeah, they're just stockings, but the result is still the same.
I wanted to do a tutorial on sunglasses inspired on the a-morir lace sunglasses. I really like the idea of lace sunglasses and I thought it couldn’t be that hard to do a DIY version of these sunglasses. I wanted to make them a little more subtle and give them my own twist. That’s why I decided to use white lace and white sunglasses for this project.
Happy Friday friends! Earlier this week I said I'd be sharing a fashion upcycle using vintage trim , and here it is! Disclaimer: I am not a fashion blogger, or a professional seamstress. You have been fairly warned. So a couple summers ago I got these denim capris that were like my uniform, I pretty much wore them everywhere. But I couldn't really stand the length, they just seemed to hit at an odd spot.

Hey look I finally attempted colour blocking! I can't believe it took me so long, this top was so easy to make! I started by mapping out my measurements and settled on a square-ish top 55cm x 65cm.
It’s been awhile since our last bracelet DIY . I don’t know about you, but our wrists have been begging for another colorful addition for months now. So after playing with some materials that were already on hand, we’ve created a tutorial for a braided bead bracelet, which is a not so distant cousin of the hex nut and wrap bracelet .
