Category: DIY Clothes

Yesterday Goodwill hosted a fashion and clothing event which I attended my first time. To sum it up quickly, it was hectic, loud and I think I developed claustrophobia during the clothes swap. The event first stared with a tour of some advertising booths and food samples which I thought were the most exciting things at first. Then the fashion stared at 6:45 staring student designers who took clothes from Goodwill and re-purposed them into their own design. I realized that if I wanted any of the “good clothes” that I would have leave the fashion show early to get in front of the line and get to the racks the fastest. About ten mins into the swap, racks were appearing empty. I was pushed and manipulated but in the end found a few dress and blazers. I acculturated some clothes that actually fit me and some brand names like Norstrom and H&M. Above are just a few pieces. Please ignore the messy room. My time is wasted on blogging and sew, not cleaning.

DIY originality <3

Milele a la mode

Having your own DIY project can not only be a great creative outlet but a custom-made fashion statement! I went searching for some of the cutest, coolest fashion DIY tutorials and posted what I found. I really encourage DIY pieces in your wardrobe because it adds originality to your outfit that could be hard to find elsewhere, so set some time aside, find your creative muse and get started on your own fashion masterpiece!

When I was in high school, I used to wear silver glitter as eye shadow.

And not just to pep rallies or out dancing.  Oh, it’s a Tuesday?  I have a geometry test today?  Guess I’ll wear some silver glitter.

My glitter-crush is still alive and kicking ten years later.  Although I can’t imagine an appropriate event for the eye shadow anymore.  Halloween, maybe?  New Years?

I guess this lady is still working the glitter-shadow…

Anyway.  I saw these kicks on “this is glamourous” recently and it started a full on glitter revival.

I searched and found crafts where people glittered double sided tape, camera straps, disco balls, utensils, wallpaper, even an edible glitter TRIFLE!!  Now you can COOK WITH GLITTER!!!

I went out that night and bought fabric glue and a big container of gold fine glitter.

Not edible.  But so sparkly.

Bowtie Necklaces



The other day, I was boredly wasting time on YouTube, when I came across an awesome channel- itsblitzzz. It’s filled with demos and tutorials on how to make heaps of epic things (bow back leggings, tiger stripe french manicures, etc…), and has heaps of videos on t-shirt reconstruction, a process which involves cutting, stretching, and weaving plain t-shirts and turning them into awesome, unique pieces of clothing. Since I’d never reconstructed a t-shirt before, I pretty much totally copied the below video:

^And that’s what the sleeve looks like. 🙂

Now that I’ve made my first reconstructed tee, and understand the method, I have heeeaps of epic plans on how to make more, using my own ideas rather than just copying someone elses! YAY!
