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!

Fabspiration – Floral Crop Shirt

1

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.

Fabspiration of the Week – Floral Headpieces

Hey y’all!

Warm and hearty welcome to the Spring season of 2015!

Nothing gets me more excited than spring time and the celebration of flora and fauna. Not to mention, in Mumbai, spring time is a rather short, which is why I make sure I enjoy it even more. But I have plans to celebrate this year’s spring season even into summer time.

How, you ask. By DIY-ing lots of things that would remind me of the freshness of spring time!

And this week, it shall be the most beloved floral headpiece!

Floral headbands are girly, beautiful and not to mention the prettiest way to accessorise any outfit. Probably inspired by ancients Greeks and their olive head wreaths, the modern take is equally serene and stunning.

Fabspiration of the Week – Knots ‘N’ Knits

 

Hey y’all!

Fabspiration of this week takes me back to school days when Girl Guides used to be a big thing. Ropes, knots and such.

Knotting is one technique to create amazing accessories for the neck, waist and wrist. You probably have seen scores of such accessories on Pinterest, craftgawker and Tumblr. Yet this week, I’ll be showing one such DIY project to you all because I’m planning to go all nautical this summer. It’s time to go ‘Aye! Aye, Sailor!’ from ‘flora & fauna’!

Stay tuned to see what DIY project I’ve planned for tomorrow!

Fabspiration of the Week – Velvet ‘N’ Denim

Hey y’all!

This week is the beginning to something awesome because the DIY I have in mind for you is simply AH-MAY-ZING! It’s so bloody awesome, that it tops my charts for being an all-time favourite DIY so far. Like that good.

Let me first explain how the inception of such an idea came about…

Colour blocking is one of my favourite ways to experiment with outfits and recently I’ve enjoyed playing with textures, colours, etc. as you can see from my recent Mosh Says…, DIY Lace ‘N’ Plaid Shirt and DIY The BFF Tshirt.

And sitting inside my craft box is an old charcoal black pair of jeans that is dying to get some revamp done. And then throw in some velvet… Yes! I got the very best of my DIY projects ready to be proudly presented to you.

Stay tuned to see the DIY tomorrow!

Oh, the top looks gorgeous, doesn’t it? Well, so does my model, in fact, with that boho headband. You can add more accessories like bracelets to make the outfit more dynamic. As for to wear something with the top, it can range from shorts, to jeans, to skirts! Just about anything that makes you comfortable!
