It has been quite the break from blogging that I have taken, but I’m back with a new DIY post for you guys. Inspired by bracelets by Frieda and Nellie, this is a perfect refresh for any old friendship bracelets or a great new addition to your arm parties for up coming summer memories. I’ll be sporting mine along with my besties at various music festivals and summer activities this season. What will you pair with your DIY Frieda and Nellie inspired bracelets?
Loving the back detail of this Dion Lee 3D Filter Jacket! It’s taken a year for me to finally gather all the materials and things necessary for this DIY but it is finally done! Keep you eyes out for the tutorial coming up soon!!!
Highlight of the October month has got to be Halloween; I love the opportunity to be someone else for one night. Last year I did a tutorial for rhinestone cat ears, this year I thought I’d show you guys another easy headband tutorial that you will want to wear everyday and not just for Halloween. Pair this with a red top and pants or a dress, add a red trident and tail if you’re up for it.
It’s been a hell of a summer, finally getting around to posting this Phillip Lim Tee DIY tutorial I photographed all the way back in June (sorry guys!). I guess it’s also good timing since 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target is coming out soon, so in the spirit of celebrating Phillip Lim’s brilliance, on-wards with the tutorial.
Word of warning: This is not a cheap DIY and is quite time consuming, so gather some patience and the result will be fantastic!
What you’ll need:
- White tee (mine’s from H&M)
