Wardrobe Revamp

I’ve been meaning to revamp some of my clothes for a while. When your low on funds and you can’t just run out and buy cooler clothes you have to get creative. So I was looking at my jeans and thinking about how I could make them more awesome. I had some black dye lying around so I figured, fuck it, I’ll dye a pair black. I’ve spent the last three days working of making a cool outfit out of the stuff I have on hand. This is what I came up with. I made a pair of my favorite fitting jeans into some awesome black skinny jeans that are super comfy as well as flattering. Viola, from old and busted to new hotness!

Then I had this ugly dress shirt I got at a thrift store years ago when I was a corporate flunky. I always liked the fabric and the cuffs but the shirt itself was just ill fitting no matter what I did to it. Best solution was to just cut it up. So I cut my favorite parts of the shirt and turned them into need “cuff” bracelets and a “collar” choker. A while ago I stumbled upon a tutorial on Thread Banger on how to make spats, I bookmarked it because I knew one day I would want to try to make a pair. Since I had extra fabric from the shirt I decided to try the spats. I added some pyramid studs for extra pazazz to complete the look. From Corporate bitch, to Steam Punk aristocrat!

New supplies, new ideas!

Hey people so I just got some new supplies that I ordered now I can work on some of my new bag ideas. I got small snaphooks so I can make better wristlets/coin purses. I also picked up some 1 inche black webbing for my bags. I already have 1 1/2 inch and 2″ but those are not always the right size for what I need so I decided to get a smaller size. I think this webbing will be perfect for my smaller backpacks. Another product I just ventured into was pyramid spikes. I had got some in 1/2 inch size and those work so well I decided to get the smaller 1/4 inch size too for bracelets and decoration. I can’t wait to start using my new stuff in my designs! Here are some pics of the new supplies 😀
