Fashion Inspiration: DIY’s

DIY’s or How To posts are so incredibly inspiring to me. The fact that anything, truly anything, can be created if you set your mind to it speaks volumes. You don’t need to spend tons of money, you just need to slap on your thinking cap and let your creative juices start flowing. I, for one, am not very crafty with my hands. My craft is through my lighting designs, so when I do a DIY, I spend so much time planning it out and thinking about the perfect way to execute & complete the project in the most successful way. For this month’s fashion inspiration, I’ve gathered a few of my most visited DIY blogs. Let me tell you, these ladies are incredibly creative, and their “art” (so to speak) blows me away. 

Sprinkles In Springs – DIY Spiked Bag
Kara is so much fun, and create the coolest DIY’s. From spiked bags (above), to color blocking Jeffrey Campbell’s, to funky nail designs, this girl has the creativity in her blood stream. For serious.

Fashion Tales – DIY Bracelets 
Madison creates some of the prettiest pieces. These bracelets that she concocted are so cool. I honestly would’ve never thought of doing this, but when she posted this post, it dawned on me that something so easy can look so good.

Studs and Pearls – DIY Galaxy Handbag & Heels 

When I found this phenomenal galaxy print DIY, I was completely blown away. Kirsten (awesome name, right??) is so talented. I, amongst many others, immediately started shopping online for this fabulous trend. Never did it ever cross my mind to create my own, one of a kind print. Amazing.

I Spy DIY – DIY Nautical Necklace

This necklace of Jenni’s is so beautiful. I love the rope with the copper and the lovely little hints of turquoise. It’s such a fantastic combination, and oh-so-simple to create!! She wears it so well.

Heidi Hastings’ Blog – Make Over Series

Meet Heidi, one of my first blogger friends. Aside from the fact that she can pretty much create any  make-over look…from vintage film stars to Harry Potter characters, she is also a musician in a band with her sisters. I would love if she would spill some of her talent onto me!

Savannah has such fun ideas. She has these great nail DIY’s, on top of her fabulous shop, where she creates her own jewelry (I won one of her rings once, and it is one of my favorite rings to this day. I am wearing it in this post). 

Even while writing this post I am so excited to do a DIY. Just from looking through these few fabulous blogs and these amazing creations I am inspired to think up something of my own.

    I love DIYs as well… And I love crafting– I just don’t have the patience to perfect my skills! hahaha. So, most of the time, my crafts are nice, but not wear-worthy. Maybe it’s just me. The studded bag looks like something I would totally pay a leg for!

    Thanks for all the inspiration. I LOVE the galaxy handbag and heels. I would never think to do that with glitter in a million years. I wish I was a DIY queen. I think I need to try to let my creative juices flow more often in the DIY department. After all, my Mom is incredibly crafty. There must be some of that in me!!

  17. I love DIY posts as well, but I’m SOOO not creative (in this way) myself. I’m good at buying and styling and writing about clothes, NOT designing or re-designing them!

  18. Emma says:
