What To Wear

DIY Fendi Frill

It was love at first sight when we laid eyes on the amazing oversized, billowy, ruffled frills adorning the Fall 2010 runway looks at Fendi. We immediately wanted one and just couldn't imagine having to wait another several months to actually see these frills materialize.

DIY Sleeveless Trench Coat

We'd been dying to DIY a sleeveless trench coat the moment they were spotted here and there last fall. But then came a seemingly endless winter and our hopes of slashing sleeves were stashed away for months. Now that spring has sprung, we are beyond exited to finally thin out our layers

DIY Stitched Hat

If I had a nickel for every time my mom has warned "the sun is not your friend," I could retire tomorrow. Honestly. Instead, my closet is full of sun hats, fedoras, cowboy hats, visors, and various other sun shielding apparati. While it may not suffice as an alternative to sunscreen

Madewell Denim DIY

DIY Gold Painted Jeans

Chloé's Fall 2010 gold embroidered, part mariachi-part cowboy denim pants were our inspiration for this week's DIY. Such elaborate embroidering is beyond our skill set, so we figured stenciling a beautiful pattern using gold fabric paint would be a more feasible interpretation.

3 Designers 3 DIYs

New York, London, Milan and Paris - for weeks we closely followed each of the Fall 2011 collections and wow, were they inspiring! We, along with two of our favorite DIY bloggers, took on the challenge of picking some items from the runways and went about recreating them with our own creative twists.

DIY Lace Shorts

A few weeks ago, our friend Katie showed up wearing the cutest lace trimmed shorts. We were impressed to discover that not only did she DIY them, she made them using boxer shorts! We immediately raced to Target for white boxer shorts and the fabric store for a variety of pretty white lace trims.

DIY Embellished Denim Shirt

In case you weren't able to join us last week at Madewell's anniversary event, we're giving you the breakdown on just one of the many ways we embellished our favorite chambray shirts that evening. So grab a handful of sparkle and let's get gilding!
