You guys know I’m an avid thrifter but I’m also huge on DIY projects. So I was excited when I was selected as one of 10 bloggers to participate in New York Design Shop’s DIY Blogger Challenge.
They sent each blogger a box of trimmings (fringe, studs, flowers, etc.) and we were to make one or more fashion-related projects. We had free range to create whatever our little sartorial hearts could dream of, but we were limited to the trimmings they provided (the addition of a chain necklace was the only exception).
I had a Nicole Miller dress (thrifted for $1) that I embellished with some studs on the straps and fringe at the hem
My second project involved remixing a pair of Zara shoes that were sitting in my closet.
