another DIY, finally!
for those who aren’t familiar with the term, DIY = “do it yourself”, and commonly refers to projects that people construct themselves instead of purchasing an more expensive, pre-fab (pre-fabricated) item.
i’ve been seeing studded blazers in editorials and on last season’s runways, and i finally decided to try and recreate the look myself. i nabbed a bag of 100 3/8″ silver studs from a wholesaler online for $5.99, and they just arrived today. i had a white linen bolero hanging in my closet that i thrifted a while back, but never wore because it never seemed to match anything else i owned, which is no small feat. the bolero is simple enough, and it is a small jacket, but the way it sits when worn takes over an outfit. i was amazed and frustrated. in any case, i decided if it wanted to go big so badly, i’d make it go way big. after getting some inspiration from some other photos, i got to work. after about an hour, i had my finished product, and i must admit, i’m pretty pleased.
