Patches + Clothes – Fabspiration (2nd Edition)

Trailing after the first edition of beautiful patches on jeans that I posted back in 2014, the trend originally started with DKNY back in 2014 when Cara Delevingne wore them for their advert, and nearly every brand has adopted the patches into their collections, because they are just so cool!

Here’s the second edition of patches on clothing (mostly denim though), with more inspirations for you to get hooked onto and revamp your jeans that you would be thinking about trashing/donating! I’m highly inspired by the pop-art comic representation at the back of my jacket… Might just DIY it super soon!

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 do 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’m 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 idea where my pair of jeans get to don a different personality and become more playful!

Hence, stitch your desired embellishments in a way that it doesn’t come off while 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!

Anyway, now that I’m back on blogosphere, today’s blog post shall be interesting one since it’s the very first of its kind: LIFE ADVICE (of sorts!)

Do It Yourself – Burberry Inspired Shoes

Post-Template

Hey y’all!

Posting this week’s DIY for you guys, I’m in the mood for keeping all of my heels aside, and make something funky (and comfortable) for my feet.

Thanks to the tremendous database of Style.com and their daily inspirations, I was back to browsing the collections of one of my favourite brands, Burberry, when I came across these wonderful shoes!

Colourful, playful and slightly on the bonkers’ side, these sneakers from Burberry Spring/Summer 2015 are just the right kind of accessory I need in my wardrobe. Funny that they cost a whooping (amount) (well, not really that funny), which sort of made my wallet very sad.

Thus, I decided to do this: Do It Myself.

Yes. The steps to making this are very easy and the materials you need to make these are also very inexpensive (perfect ingredients for any fabulous DIY really!) and they hardly take an hour to make.

So read on to find how easy and fun this DIY is!

Post-Template

Yes. That’s it. Literally a one-Step method to doing this DIY.

And now, I’d love to see you guys give this DIY a try. Don’t forget to tell me all about it, and maybe send a few snaps?

Cheers!

Fabspiration – Floral Crop Shirt

Hey y’all!

It’s the season of flowers blooming in your backyard, making everything smell fresh and earthy and the best way to announce that Spring has arrived right on time. Just like last week, with The DIY Floral Headpiece, this week shall also involve a bit of flowers. What can I say? I’m currently obsessed with them.

This week it’s the Flowery Crop SHIRTS.

That’s right.

Let’s forget tshirts for sometime, because I’ll be upcycling my formal office wear shirts into something that’s adorable and not-so-plain. An ah-may-zing DIY that everyone should definitely try!

Stay tuned to check out the insanely brilliant DIY tomorrow.

Mosh Wear – The Floral Headband

Hey y’all!

I don’t think I’ll stop gushing about just how amazing everything floral is! It’s going to happen at least for this month.

And on such days when I’m all excited about spring time, I like to spruce up my outfit with a bit of my rebellious personality. Forget skirts and tops that would probably go very well with the outfit.

I’m talking cropped button-up shirts, floral printed pants, heels, rings (knuckle ones too) and the mega amazing DIY Floral Headband.

The outfit comprises of DIY Crop Shirt (the one where I got my tailor to crop it short and used hot glue gun to stick the felt flowers I got from Hobby Ideas) floral pants from UNI QLO, and a mini sling bag from the street shops.
