diy on my mind


http://static.uber.com/media_fetch/243667571_4186_originalsideswipe_instory5.jpg
i always used to be too lazy for diy projects.
well, i kind of still am.

but over the last couple of weeks, everytime I have sat down on the bus after college a couple of ideas have popped into my head..

1. creating some obscenly meticulous latice effect leggings ala rodarte.

2 or settling for an equally gorgeous (and much easier to reproduce) pair ala anja rubik.

3 and getting some studs and sewing them onto the knees of my jeans ala (whisper her name, she smells..) cory kennedy.

my predictions; that ridiculously pain-staking tee shirt project that childhood flames is getting into is going to be the new bleached jeans diy project. then the slashed leggings will follow! if only betting stocks took such predictions..

edit: aww crap. i just checked up on fashion toast and rumi beat me to it! schadenfreude to me, ha.

don't worry about who did what first...i say still go for the slashed leggings and add your own little spin!

i love the jeans with the studded knees!

ashleigh said...

haha aw i'm sure you could pull it off equally if not better than rumi.

this is such a great idea, i'd have no idea where to start.

and i'm that lazy person, i always say i'll diy and never do. i have studs sitting around from 2 months ago waiting to be used.

I think you can do an even more extreme version of Rumi's ones....slashes ALL the way down!
