Last month, I found an Aeropostale denim Continue reading (via Wild Amor)


2 Sequin Maxi Wrap Skirt


Sequin Maxi Wrap Skirt: As the year draws to a close, for many of us thoughts are turning to what to wear to our New Years Eve celebrations.

5 Japanese OBI Panel Skirt


Japanese OBI Panel Skirt: People sometimes ask me about what inspires my DIYs, and I think most expect that I get ideas from the runway, street style, or designer collections, and naturally I find inspiration in all those places.

14 Galaxy Sweatshirts


Galaxy Sweatshirts: I love galaxy inspired prints and jackets but did not like the price tag($75 for leggings? I could just buy an entirely new wardrobe at a thrift store and still have enough money for lunch!) and thought it would be awesome to make an Instructable to make your own “galaxy” clothing article! This is a great gift for those who are on a tight budget this Christmas or for those who want to make their plain old black sweatshirt, t-shirts, jeans, whatevers into space-tacular stylish wear! It even glows in the dark and is great for parties under black lights hahaha If you have plain old boring black clothes laying around that you don’t wear anymore… UPCYCLE AND MAKE GALAXY SHIRTS. It’s an easy way to make a “one of a kind” wardrobe! If you can’t paint… IT’S OKAY! YOU CAN DO THIS! It’s super easy to do and takes maybe … (via Julianne fights Dragons!)

23 High Low Skirt


High Low Skirt: We love the high low skirt trend. The breezy hemline makes this trend perfect for these hot summer months. You can see Elsie sporting this style here.

Supplies: skirt, knee length or longer, scissors, sewing machine. 2. Begin by cutting a U… (via A Beautiful Mess)

Mara Hoffman Inspired Miniskirt: Ever since I posted a few weeks ago about Mexican blankets (sarape/zarape/serape) being a massive summer inspiration for me, my mind has been in overdrive working out what to make out of my own rug. I finally settled on a simple bodycon mini skirt with a side zip, something which will be perfect… (via a pair & a spair)

30 Stenciled Leather Jacket


Stenciled Leather Jacket: A few months ago, I was wandering around Williamsburg with my good friend Abby.
