Buy Or DIY | Embellished Shorts
Here’s our latest installment of Buy or DIY - on the left we have Miu Miu embellished shorts, at the er… refreshing… price of $2690! Or you can go for the DIY version from Highland Fling that cost about $25. Even if you count the time it takes to stitch the beads, you’re way ahead! And to be honest, I actually love the Highland Fling shorts!

Perusing through Op shops, you will certainly find a bunch of these ‘designer’ scarves. And here is a perfect way to wear them instead of around your neck! If you can’t find two scarves in the same print, try to find two in similar colours.

Aren’t these sweet?! A really easy way to update your cutoffs without having to dye them. Try to find a nice vintage fabric for a real one of a kind pair. You could even swap the button for something like a diamante or wooden type if you’re feeling adventurous!
Stella McCartney MVP Shorts | Runway DIY
Though it’s waytoo cold to wear shorts here at the moment, I couldn’t go past sharing this amazing DIY from Runway DIY. This is super easy - if you can use glue, you can make shorts like this! You can get your appliques from any craft or fabric store and if you’re not keen on white shorts you could try pale colours like pink or blue.

Lace Shorts | Honestly WTF
These are made with men’s boxer shorts! If you’re not super comfortable wearing men’s boxer shorts you could always update a pair you already have. I’m sure I’ve said this before but shorts are everywhere at the moment. Isn’t funny how things come back in fashion!?
Scalloped Shorts | Megan Nielsen Design
The DIY world is aflame with passion for scallops and short tutorials! This beauty combines the two in a really sweet pair of shorts that could get you through the whole Summer. Shorts aren’t really something that come to mind when I think of shorts but these completely change my mind!
30 Minute Elastic Waist Shorts | Sew Convert
The easiest way to get hand-sewn clothes is to use your own clothes as a guide. I find pants/shorts to be the hardest to sew from a pattern, they either end up being too big at the waist or oddly shaped at the hips. So making them from a pair that I know will fit is so obvious! And I know just the fabric I will use - black with soft red roses. Tres chic! Also - elastic waist = super comfy!
