What To Wear Wednesdays: PLL Steez

As promised in last week’s post… we have created a PLL inspired DIY fashion tutorial over at KT+E Unplugged. Who else was lusting over Aria’s studded hoodie from the winter premier?? I know I was. I wanted to see it hanging in my closet STAT so I took it upon myself to make it happen. I gathered the needed supplies and got to work. Here’s how it turned out…

Here’s what you’ll need:

+ a hoodieany hoodie will do. I went with basic black while Fashionlushxx gravitated toward gray [we got ours at H&Mwhat’s new?]

+ studs: We went with a 1/2 inch conical stud which we ordered ours from Studs & Spikes.com

+ a flat-head screw driver: this will help you to pinch down the prongs on each stud

We chose to stud along the pockets and the rim of the hood… but you can do whatever tickles your fancy. It’s your project so have fun with it!

Head on over to KT+E Unplugged to watch the tutorial… and while you’re there DON”T forget to subscribe!!

What to wear…? Wednesdays: Semper Fi.

I am loving the military inspired trends that we have been seeing so much of lately. A Camo or Army green jacket is a total Fall must have and should be a staple in every girl’s wardrobe! I personally think that studs add the perfect amount of rugged, yet femme flare to this masculine print.

Fearne Cotton, Rita Ora, and Kate Moss can’t hide from us in their camo jackets. I spy my favorite Fall trend.

What more can I say about Combat boots? If you have seen my previous posts you know that I adore them and I absolutely live in mine year round!

Miley pulls double duty with a camo print top tied around her waist and an awesome pair of platform, patent leather combat boots. Selena and Demi display how these boots literally look good with everything.

Though I am a huge fan of everything camo and military inspired… let’s try not to overdo it… shall we?

Time for Gwen to waive her white flag and surrender… this is an example of too much of a good thing. Even Kingston is decked out in head to toe camo.

 

 

 

 

What a STUD!! D.I.Y. studded iPad case

20120710-112657.jpg

My sweet mama gifted me her iPad which she rarely never used. Seeing as how I am constantly clicking away on my computer… blogging, pinning, tweeting, you name it… I was ecstatic! The only problem was that the plain black case it sat in simply would not do! Rather than buy a new, more fashionable case, I decided it would be way more fun to jazz it up myself. Somewhat did I do you ask…? I broke out my bedazzler and got busy! I am pretty pleased with the final product… it’s cute, trendy, and most importantly made with love!
Want to make your own studded iPad case?… Or any case for that matter! Here’s what you will need…
1) a leather or vinyl case / cover
2) a sharpie or pen in a contrasting color
< i used a silver nail polish pen. It was easy to see against the black background, yet wiped off easily if I made a mistake.>
3) a bedazzler
4) studs, rhinestones, or whatever shiny things float your boat…
< i used a combination of gold and silver studs… though it’s kind of hard to tell in the photos>
… if you do not own a bedazzler (but who doesn’t) you can simply use some flat studs (the kinds without the prongs) and some G-S Hypo Cement or any strong hold craft glue available at bead stores, Michaels, etc…
Now what?
Simply mark where you would like to place your studs and stud away!!
