DIY: denim vest

A lot of you, dear readers, are asking me to post a DIY, do-it-yourself, project that I have done. So, here goes one of my recent DIY project. My friend, Nirielle, has a denim button-down from her father that she wanted to use. So she asked me if I could turn the button-down into a vest or something.

Here’s the Wrangler denim button-down she wanted me to turn into a vest.

What I did was I cut the sleeves off, so that it would look like this:

From that, I used vintage studs that I bought from the local fabric stores and placed some of it at the tip of the collar.

I also placed studs at the shoulder part of the garment.

Of course after I cut the sleeves, I loosened the threads so that it would have a rugged look that would add a twist to the vest. I added more studs at the front pockets.

For the final product, I styled three looks on Nirielle.

First look: Sweet Nautical

I paired the vest with this dress that has red and white vertical lines, which looks perfect with the blue denim.

Second Look: Asian Invasion

I styled her hair with a Cinderella bun, which speaks very Korean. I also incorporated the look with bold prints. It looks very punk and street style.

Third Look: Ready-to-go Chic

For this one I paired the vest with short shorts and tank top since summer is coming soon! :))



I would really love to hear your comments on this project! I’ll read them soon! 🙂



The Denim Factor

Hello everyone!

For this post I will show you how to work a denim-on-denim look! One piece of advice is that if you would want it to work you should have one shade darker/lighter than the other, you don’t want them to be on the same hues or color, because it would look like you’re wearing a jumper, remember that piece of garment? Haha!

Here’s my look:

[L] White rubber spikes, Rebel Gear. Watch, Swatch. Gold spikes connector ring, Superb bazaar.

[R] Gold infinity cuff, Oxygen. Leopard and Ram ring, Superb bazaar.

Armor gold necklace, SM Accessories. Denim button-down, Ceronias.

Transparent-framed sunnies, Folded and Hung.

Denim shorts, Westbury.

Espadrilles, Topman.

Brown leather bag, Penshoppe.
