DIYs I'd Love to Try



Some DIY inspiration to help you reinvent your old clothes or modify purchases from chain stores or thrift shops. Being cheap can be fun!   

 

THE COLLARED MIDRIFF TOP BY A PAIR & A SPARE

This cropped shirt by A Pair and a Spare is oh so cute and a great way to reinvent a thrifted shirt. Don't ignore the men's section as a collared shirt (sans pit stains) can be used to make shirt dresses and skirts. Even for shirts that are way over-sized, I think this tutorial makes it especially easy to take in the sides because there's less fabric!
Tip: Pair cropped tops with highwaisted bottoms like Geneva to cover your bellybutton and keep things classy.

THE COLOUR POP PLATFORM BY P.S. - I MADE THIS 

Got an event coming up and need a pair of statement shoes? There's no need to live on Mi Goreng for the next 2 weeks - just try this tutorial instead! Grab an old pair of plain heels
from your wardrobe - or the sale table at Payless - and pimp them out with paint. I'd love to try this with gold. 


Cap off your Fall footwear with a primary pop!  Prada has always taught us that prim & proper doesn’t have to lack pizzazz…and this season’s classic Mary Jane-turned-punchy platforms are all the proof you need. We got pumped up with out friends at Who What Wear and decided to breathe life into an old pair that’s begging for a reinvention! 
To create:  Tape off the bottom portion of your heel with painters tape.  Once taped, wrap the rest of the shoe and inside of the shoe with a plastic bag or paper to shield from spray paint.  In a well ventilated area, spray the untaped portion with the color spray paint of your choice.  Allow to dry over night and then spray with a clear sealant to protect.  Remove tape and plastic.

THE SLEEVELESS TRENCH BY HONESTLY WTF

Erica from Honestly WTF made this nice little autumn wardrobe addition using an inexpensive trench coat from Walmart. The tutorial seams quite easy (if you'll excuse the pun) and would be a great way to make your chain store coat more unique or get some wear out of a trench with ill-fitting sleeves.
