Do It Yourself!

In preparation for the holidays we thought we would share some Do It Yourself (DIY) ideas that would make great gifts and/or help you achieve that awesome look for the holiday season. Keep your eyes peeled for these instillations!

One thing that we really love is using our creativity to spice up our wardrobe to make it more "one of a kind", or to recreate a look that we love but could make for less. One brand we really love is Haute Hippie. We found this fabulous Haute Hippie sweatshirt at Nordstrom Rack in Portland, Oregon and decided to recreate it at home for a fraction of the price.  Stephanie made a trip to Goodwill to pick up a quality gray sweatshirt and to Michaels to pick up some studs. Fifteen dollars and an hour later the result is a fabulous homemade replica of this very fashionable design.

Be the envy of all your friends in a one of a kind creation!  Isn't that the dream?  It is something that any of us can do if we are willing to put a little bit of time and effort into it. We picked this fabulous gray wool jacket up at Goodwill, added some sparkly belt studs and a silver leather bird (that we cut out) to it and Voila! A great one of a kind creation is birthed. 

*The belt studs were purchased at Joan Fabrics as was the silver leather
