A surprisingly easy DIY with great results that can jazz up any old skirt you have around! I’ve mentioned my love for Alexander Wang’s brilliance in this previous post and wanted to recreate a piece similar to his, because let’s be real, I don’t have that kind of money to spend on one of his skirts no matter how much I want it. I was surprised at how well this DIY turned out to be honest, it adds that hint of extra skin and makes your skirt a little extra special and everyone will be asking you were you got it the next time you go out!
Maybe I’m a bit late getting on board with this
Alexander Wang collection but I believe his brilliance can be and should be appreciated all the time! (It makes it seem like I thoughtfully put this together more than stumbling across an image going ooooooooh DIY? And only realizing its a season or few late; but in my defense his pieces are more staples and timeless than most.)
The architectural structure of his pieces in this collection brings me back to the long ago memories when I was learning how to draw two point perspective buildings. How does this relate you ask? It really doesn’t but when a design evokes an emotion or memory from us it holds something special and becomes more memorable. I think my desire to have and covet all Alexander Wang pieces stem from that. His work tends to reinvent age old processes in fashion with a futuristic flare. Kind of like how the weightlessness appearance of suspension bridges when first introduced were never before seen innovative structures created by mankind. Both are delicate but with the flare of power and resilience that can be found in a woman who wears these suspension pieces.

I’ve been lusting after this Alexander Wang Rocco Stud-Bottom bag for quite some time and while wandering through Zara the other day, I found THE perfect DIY solution! The Zara bowler bag from the trf section (here & here) is the perfect candidate for this DIY, made of man-made leather it’ll be a whole lot lighter than the real version (not to mention cheaper) and all you would need is a bit of time and some flat head cone studs. This is definitely a DIY I would love to work on this summer, here’s to hoping I can get all the supplies I need!
