DIY reveal



(Salvation Army DIY sweater, Ross DIY jeans, Dad's black oxfords)

Just when I thought my creative well had gone dry, I came across that photo on because i'm addicted's blog. I happened to have a sweater that I got from Salvation Army that I bought for an A.Wang DIY but thought the fit wasn't right for it so I abandoned the sweater.

The obvious inspiration was in the shoulder area, and as the project progressed, the creativity gods blessed me and turned it into the piece you see putting slits along the arm (reminiscent of my last DIY) and adding a crapload of studs.

My mom says she hates it, but i know it's the most awesome shit she's ever seen.

Project Runway 6


Out of all 3 contestants on Project Runway 6 finale, the 3rd contestant kicked the other two designers' asses. But that's just my opinion. Maybe it's because I'm attracted to anything that has a hard edge.

DIY idea

LOVING this DIY idea. mainly the studding. adding it to my list.


RVCA uh oh no-no

outfit by RVCA partygoer
i don't care how hot you think you are, some people just don't know when to say no. the top is salvageable and maybe this outfit could have been saved with some black pants and a blazer. and get rid of that damn hello kitty purse!

Gstar F2009

I've always had an affinity for Gstar Raw ever since I happened upon it at an outlet mall in Austin. Unlike many fashion shows with all its bells and whistles, Gstars trademark seems to be less is more. With select usage of fabrics, and a mostly monochromatic color palette, I'm amazed how they're able to make each outfit interesting and still different.

My favs: the semi-matrix obi-belted coat and those damn jeans.

And in case you didn't recognize, that's McKey from ANTM!


Real Peeps, real nice

Is that JC Chavez from NSync? Whoever it is, he cleans up real nice.

So does this girl.
Cuz seriously, who other than Erin Wasson could pull off an outfit so...well you know.

And finally,
there's nothing I admire more than people who have balls.

a true LAP-er (leggings as pants-er).
Not like that bullshit that Lindsay Lohan tries to pull.

Inspirational Bowler

I bought a bowler for my Charlie Chaplain costume last year that I never wore. Maybe I should attempt to make it work...

My returns never become returns. Case in point, I walked out of Urban Outfitters with more items than I walked in with. One of them being this...

Some badass DIY ideas!
