PS: Do It Yourself movement itself is a topic close to my heart. Moving away from the rampant consumerism that is gripping our sense of who we truly want to be, DIY is a way to find that hobby you have been meaning to pick up, to get away from your daily routine. DIY, is something every individual can adopt to save the planet’s resources by reusing and recycling. DIY gives you a sense of accomplishment, a sense of entitlement even, to something that you have made, and has your signature. It’s a personal thing, and yet everyone benefits from it. Just a little love note, from me to you! Happy DIY-ing!

Pocket Embellishments – Fabspiration

It is a truth universally acknowledged that jeans are your best friends in the casual department of your wardrobe. And we often get influenced by “trending things” and buy a pair of jeans just because it has some embellishment that our other pairs of jeans don’t. And turns out, you don’t wear that pair of jeans as often as you’d think you would at the time of purchase. I call such purchases the “Fantasy Purchases” bought on the whims of a shopaholic mind that gets instant gratification on “owning something that we never had.” But let’s be honest. Jobs are rare, and I’m realising that my hard earned money is just as liquid as my economics professor once said and they doย slip by my fingers just as easily as water does.

But I do like a change in my wardrobe, and temporary ways to upgrade it, sound very appealing to me. Since I’mย in the mood for playing around with my jeans, a temporary stitching of patches, ribbons, rhinestones and other embellishments around the pocket region of the jeans seems like a great ideaย where my pair of jeans get to don a different personality and become more playful!

All images are sourced from Pinterest, my heavenly source of inspiration.

Hence, stitch your desired embellishments in a way that it doesn’t come off whileย wearing it, but once you’re bored of the look, you can easily remove them and bring the pair of jeans back to their original form, or make some other changes with it. I think it’s a fabulous temporary way to upgrade your jeans, without having to spend much!

Diwali Special Do It Yourself – White Shirt Decoration

Last week I found myself in THE hab, a haberdashery store in Bandra. To say that my time hereย was anything less than amazing, creatively inspiring and fun, would be a lie. The store is actually like Disneyland for DIY freaks… I kid you not.

It’s no secret that I love wearing what the boys wear, mostly because of the raw feeling of wearing something really boxy, and not just tailored to be boxy for women. Hence, in my workshop, I experimented withย The Classic White Shirt, originally tailored for men, and turning it into a crisp Real Boyfriend Shirt.

Do It Yourself – Knotted Rope Belt

Hey y’all!

Bringing youย the first of my nautical experimentations this year, I bring you the Knotted Rope Belt, which is an easy rope belt made by a series of slip knots.

It’s one of the most basic knotting techniques using a rope, and it’s going to bring you amazing results which can be used in different outfits and stylised. And the best part is, you can actually wash them off if it gets dirty in the course of time.

So here’s the fabulously easy DIY project for this week along with its steps.
