Get Dressed In 5 Minutes | Lucky Mag

Do you ever stand in front of your wardrobe and think ‘I HAVE NOTHING TO WEAR’. I did that this morning. And it’s not that I don’t have anything to wear, it’s that I’m bored with what I have. You always end up wearing the same jacket with the same skirt, the same top with the same pants. Here are some great ideas of how to restyle what you already have into new outfits. You might find something new that you love - and get lots of new compliments!

Heart Print Jeans | My Little Secrets

I’m not sure why but something about printed jeans speaks to my soul. They’re fun and easy to style. But they can also be a lot more expensive than regular jeans and often times they make them in weird cuts. Using a cheapo/second hand/old pair you already have, you can get the print in whatever colour, size, shape you want and these heart print jeans are just too cute to pass up!

Isabella Sequin Bracelet | For The Makers
For The Makers is my kind of subscription service - each month you’re sent a box of goodies to create 4 different pieces from jewellery and accessories to lovely items for your home. Unfortunately you can’t subscribe in Australia (grr!) but if you’re a crafty guy or gal who loves to create and wants to try different crafts this would be perfect. Luckily for me though, the tutorials for each craft is still available for everyone to try out themselves! After seeing this project I actually went out and bought sequins today. I couldn’t find the mini rondelles but I got some super cute pink and yellow sequins to make a couple of these. And look out in the future for more projects from this great website!

Braided Bead Bracelet | Simply Allis
I’ve been seeing gorgeous braided bead necklaces such as this bracelet in the stores for about $40 a pop and though I love the style I can’t justify that much on a necklace that I will probably catch on something and rip within a minute, so making one is a great idea! I actually really like the combo of the red and gold too, great to wear with your Holiday party clothes!

Studded Collar | Creme De La Craft
Though I am a huge advocate of DIYing trendy items, sometimes when I see a great bargain I decide to buy instead! I saw an especially lovely collar on ASOS out cheap for about $5. That’s a freakin’ bargain. But when I got it… well I must have the neck of the Incredible Hulk cos that thing just wouldn’t tie around my neck! To my cousin it went. I’ve learnt my lesson, and I’m planning on just making one. I’m not keen on leather but my local has really pretty pleather in pale colours, perfect to go with all the Summer gear out now.

Faux Druzy Necklace | Minted Strawberry
I’m a bit in love with natural/mineral/earthy pendants. I particularly love my amethyst necklace, and my huge knuckle-duster crystal ring! When I first saw a druzy necklace on etsy I was keen to buy it but the prices for real druzy can be very expensive! This gorgeous DIY uses blank pendants and painted glass instead, a much much cheaper alternative. If you can’t find glass on the beach, there are some craft stores that sell it. Just be super careful when you smash it up!

Denim & Lace Shirt | A Beautiful Mess

I really love this DIY, not only because it’s feminine yet tough but also because it’s actually quite easy to sew (and you could do this by hand!) Once you’ve cut out the back of your top, it’s just a matter of using it as a template for your lace part and hand stitch it on (or sewing machine it on!) Just loving this - nothing like denim and lace!

Ballerina Skirt | Sisters, Sisters
This might be the comfiest ballerina skirt I’ve ever seen, and maybe one of the easiest to make too. Starting with a stretchy fabric tube, you build up your tulle/lace/chiffon layers and then pop a full length piece over the top. So you get the comfy stretchy base, the layers to give it the ‘frouffy-ness’ and the sheer top to spin around in! Plus, because this is based on your measurements rather than a pattern, anyone could make this in any size or length. Time to get the sewing machine back out!
