Button downs have come a long way but honestly, it can be hard to think of how to wear one apart from with a pair of pants…or a skirt. So learn some new ways to wear an old classic with Brit + Co, plus shop some very cute animal print shirts!
My Favourite Fashion DIY Sites | Runway DIY
One of the best things about Runway DIY is that if you can’t find all the bits and pieces to make your project you can purchase kits with all the ‘ingredients’ that Arianna uses! The projects are always fun and fashion forward and quite easy to make. My favourite DIY has to be the book clutch - I’ve always wanted one but could never afford the designer ones!
4 DIY Collars | Refinery 29
Decorated and detachable collars were a big thing in 2011 and hopefully they will continue in 2012 because I’m loving the DIYs people are creating. These 4 are a mixture of permanent collar designs and detachable collars. I personally love the orange collar with the brooch - like a gorgeous necklace!
The Goonies | Nerd Boyfriend
Do I have many male followers? Sometimes it’s hard to tell from people’s names/pictures. One thing I do know is that I have followers who I’m sure will dig this website as much as I do! Nerd Boyfriend takes your favourite ‘nerds’ and then where to buy the clothes to emulate them. Awesome. I chose the Goonies because it’s my favourite childhood movie. 'Goonies never say die!'
How To Transfer A Photo To Fabric | A Beautiful Mess
I can never find cool tshirts that don’t cost like, $50. The cheap ones are always ugly, with women’s faces and butterflies. Ew. I don’t want a woman’s face on my chest. Just saying. So finding out how to transfer images is fantastic! And this is without having to buy those super expensive iron on sheets… which I always ruin. This transfer is created using a medium gel. I like the idea of using vintage images too!
Let’s Go Shopping! | Topshop
We’re still waiting for Topshop to come to Adelaide (though we’re getting Zara here soon!) though that won’t stop me from virtual browsing!
Burberry Prorsum Inspired Zipper Jacket | Feed Your Style
This jacket is so easy to make, even I could make it! It’s a great ‘in-between seasons’ jacket as you can zip the middle part right off (or half way like all the fashionistas do!’) Now I just need to find a jacket I’m not scared to cut in half!
Lauren Moffat Fall 2011 | Eat Drink Chic
I am totally in love with Lauren Moffat’s Fall collection! Sigh. If only I was a size ten and had millions of dollars… uh, anyway, aren’t the colours gorgeous?! And the cuts and fabrics used have a distinctly vintage vibe with a modern edge. Can someone please buy me that blue dress?!
DIY Mummy Wedges | Semi
I am a little bit in love with these wedges. I find it fairly hard to walk in heels so any kind of shoe that is literally wrapped around my foot is good for me! I like how these have been done around an existing pair of shoes so you’ve got that extra support in there. A little bit of sewing involved, but quite worth it!
DIY Ascot Bow Tutorial | Here’s Looking At Me Kid
Finding new DIY blogs is as sweet as getting a package in the mail or your favourite magazine having a new issue out! Super awesome. Here’s Looking At Me Kid does some truly pretty updates of vintage clothing, which is incredibly inspiring. I think as always when you’re in a second hand store you need to look past the item you’re looking at and think of the potential. I particulary like this ascot bow tutorial because even though it’s pictured here on a dress, you can remove it and pop it on anything!
Spine Dress | Love Aesthetics
OK, so this DIY does require you have a dress similar to the one pictured, but the end result is worth it. But please ladies, wear something underneath. No matter how gorge your body is, no one needs to see you underbits. That just ain’t classy. You could also do this with a tight tshirt if you don’t have a tshirt dress. I’m not 100% cluey on how you do the ‘knitting’ on the back of the dress, but I’m sure there is a smart gal out there who could show us!
Simple Fabric Shawl/Scarf | Pretty Ditty
OK, so you’re probably thinking I’m slightly nuts for the scarves but this is a great tutorial with the sweetest little pom pom embellishment. I think I need to make this soon. This would also be awesome as a quilt cover, but I’m going to try the scarf first just in case I totally screw it up.
Styling Secrets | Dirty Hair Halo
I’ve been blog jumping tonight and somehow came across Dirty Hair Halo! I can’t remember how, but I’m glad I did. I like the cropped jacket but what I love is how she knotted her dress. I’m sure people do this all the time but I’ve never seen it before! To get this effect she turned it inside out, knotted it and then put it on the right way. She also does a lot of chopping and altering of her clothes which I envy - I’m too scared that I’m going to completely ruin my clothes. The dress looks amazing with the jacket. Does anyone else have any tricks they have to temporarily alter the look of an outfit?
Romanticism Top | Phosphene
This top is so true to it’s name, and makes me think of a swan, or something a ballerina would wear on her day off. I would get this dirty in about five seconds, but I imagine that someone more sophisticated could pull it off!
'Vintage' Cateye Onesie | Ashley Ann Photography
Did anyone see on the news the other night about the ‘ruffle diaper frenzy’?! These mums were going nuts over these little diaper covers with ruffles on them, that lady must have made a mint! They were super cute, but not as cute as this onesie! How adorable. Do you think that mums would go nuts over this too? I think so!
