I am so very excited to announce this to you!! This week I’ll be collaborating with H&M at their Oxford Circus flagship store for two DIY days devoted to DIY and festival fashion!
We will be doing three projects in the DIY fashion Lounge throughout the day all about fringing, studding and embellishing. For pre-inspiration check out my pinterest here, I’ll be updating it throughout the day!
The event will start at 12pm this Thursday and Friday on the 4th floor, Iveline (a bestie) and I will be customizing away with anyone who wants to have a go so come and say Hi if you can! You can get DIYing when you spend £25 or more in store and show a valid receipt.
This last week has been busy busy as I’ve been making inspirations that will be displayed in the windows at the store. Its cray cray. I’m so damn excited. I’m doubling all my words. *Little dance. I should make a gif of that.
I really hope to see some of you there! Hit me up a message if you’re coming!
I bet this happens to everyone, you buy a nice pair of earrings and one day, when your dancing or in a hurry, you lose one. Well here’s a solution I have, to make the cherished loner into a ring.
A friend of mine did this a couple of years back with a lonely gold earring. She actually went to the jewellers supplied a gold ring and the lonely gold earring and he stuck them together, it looks awesome and cost her 20 bucks! Mine, is more of a costume jewellery solution, obviously, but still a wonderful idea if you want to keep on wearing something beautiful.
For the task I used a clip on earring and kept the back on, but it’s definitely possible to do the same thing with a stud, you just need to cut off the back.
The how to – DIY ring
1. You will need: Jewellery or metal glue, a lonesome earring and a ring, (now they’ll be together until death does them part.)
2. Depending on the back of the earring prepare the surface to later attach the ring. I had to keep the clip-on post because the earring was very deep-set.
3. Put the jewellery glue on the ring and the earring.
4. Squeeze together the earring and the ring for 1 minute and leave to dry for 24 hours.
And voilà! A recycled earring has a new life and an opportunity to shine again!
What do you think?
Back in Paris now and thought I’d do something classic with this trench coat I received from She Inside this week! I’m loving the lace detail on the sleeve (the lining is like that too!) it looks great belted up or hanging coolly off shoulders. Trench coats are just a classic staple for spring, they are so versatile, next I need a black one!
Lovely Louise Chester from Imagined Adventures took these pics, we had a couple of drinks in the Marais yesterday afternoon. It’s starting to warm up a little and I’m rather enjoying the great outdoors.
Will be posting some more pictures from Toronto soon!
