DIY bejeweled












these are my DIY embellished tights, I embellished them with chains.
What I wear; Mint Jacket (consignment store/tokio7 $70), Sass&Bide dress (consignment $45) cardigan Marc by Marc Jacobs (consignment/tokio7 $30) Boots Miu Miu (consignment/tokio7 $90) Tights by me and still in progress haha :)


I'm embellishing these tights with chains, thick, thin, silver, gold and copper, I figured out by smartly dividing the weight that the tights don't run!! With walking around it hold perfectly too, and gives an amazing effect, especially when it gets dark!!

And before I forget.. This Swedish website decided to put my Snout on their street section,
anyways, you can go to the site, by clicking on the photo's you can vote by clicking on the "heart" you guys will see some more familiar faces :) :)

haha. Thanks your so sweet. I have a thing for red shoes, I'm obsessed with the Wizard of Oz.

Made my day.

You would love my hairdresser. He use to work for a fashion magazine, doing model's hair for runways, etc. He's so funny, too. It also helps he's hella hot but he's gay and married. It's expensive, well for NE, but I refuse to go anywhere else.

Isquisofrenia said...

hahah, your funny well its alwyas good to try new things and buy different shoes. by the way im waiting for this really cute brown oxfords that i bought online but thats another story.
dude omg , i can only imagine that you have to travel to diff places and shit like that but i think paris would be so awesome.
and also they have such a good range of shops yeah. ive heard =)

Isquisofrenia said...

Love, love, love those tights. We should somehow set up a couture swap shop...

the stuff sale said...

You should definitely try it! I sent the other one out 2 days ago so you should get it by Monday! As for me.. I'm paranoid with working with bleach because the smell lingers and I have my little Bubba around. I'm a paranoid Mama.. sucks for him!

Love your scenery too! I miss NYC.. definitely my fav place to visit in the U.S. Esp. during Christmas!
