Obession:DIY

Another DIY today. It is seriously addicting. Once you alter one piece of clothing, you can't help doing a few more, then you realize that there are sooo many other things in your wardrobe that might benefit from a tad bit of alteration. And then you suddenly get the urge to perforate/fabric paint/generally destroy virtually every piece of clothing in your wardrobe. And then you realize you won't even get to finish because your mother is now sending you to a mental institution. (Okay, sometimes I get a little carried away) but the point is, small DIY projects are easy and fun and they can look really, really rad, and not like you did it yourself at all. (If it is, in fact, completely obvious that you did it yourself, you might want to consider it a failed project.) Doing DIYs can reinvent your wardrobe, give use out of items you wouldn't otherwise wear, save you tons of money, and they are even kind to our good friend, mother nature.
I endured a lot of pain on this particular DIY, stitch rippers are deadlier than they appear my friends, hope you like.

  2. Thanks for the comment ;)

    Of course I've seen the Keith Haring X Nicholas Kirkwood shoes, I'm obsessed with everything Keith. He has an exhibition going on in New York right now and I'm planning to go see it this summer. There's no way I'm missing out on seeing his work in person.

    Also, I read in your blog that you're going to Ryerson for fashion communication? Congrats, I'm going into 3rd year. Enjoy your summer while you can!

  7. Love people who have the guts to do DIY projects. I find people can be a bit precious with their clothing...maybe it is because they have spent a lot of money on it or they are scared of it going wrong?! But your top is amazing! I think when you take an average item and DIY-it you can make it look like it's just come off the Proenza Schouler catwalk. Good effort lady!
