Add Luxurious, Stylish Pieces Into Your Wardrobe Without The Price Tag

Hello my beautiful readers,

How are you all this lovely day? For today’s post I wanted to share with you some of my favorite d.i.y fashion projects. One of my favorite things to do is to recreate beautiful pieces to add to my wardrobe. Even though this can take up a lot of time the proud feeling you get in the end makes it completely worth it. For the ones I’ve chosen you don’t have to be super skilled to do them they are all very beginner friendly, the only tutorials that might be a bit hard at first are the bags. With them you just have to begin the more you work on them the easier they will become to make.

Let’s get creating…

#1 Petal Sandals

cashmere meets khakisI was so excited when I found this tutorial on how to make your own Petal Sandals on Inscrutables. I have been wanting a pair of shoes like this ever since I saw Carrie wearing them in I Heart NY. The only adjustment I would make is changing the color of the shoes to pink or blue instead of black other then that they are perfect.

#2 Stella McCartney Falabella Bag

cashmere meets khakisWhen it comes to buying purses and bags I always look for ones that have a timeless look to them. I usually always ask the question “Will this bag look good 20 years from now” before I buy them. When I saw Mimi feature this Stella McCartney bag in one of her look books I feel in love with it straight away, it was the perfect bag in every way except in the price. The price was just way way way out of my price range so I was so happy when I found Evelina’s tutorial on how to make a d.i.y version on Youtube. Her tutorial is so easy to follow and the end result is just WOW.

#3 Stud Pocket Pants

cashmere meets khakisHow bad ass do these pants look! The ripped pocket with the studs makes such a great combo. For these I only found this picture so I’m not sure if a tutorial for them exists. From what I can see they are not to hard to make. You just take some jeans, cut them near where the pocket is sewn until you reach the end, ruff up the edges a bit then stick on studs in the inside of the pocket. When you finish you’ll have a great new addition for your wardrobe.

*You can buy the studs in any craft store.

#4 Bucket Bag

cashmere meets khakisOn days when I have to be walking around all day the last thing I want to be doing is lugging around a giant purse with me. But unfortunately if I wanted to fit all the things I needed I had to. After a while this didn’t do wonders for my shoulder. I was browsing through blogs when I found this bucket bag tutorial on the site Pretty Prudent. I love how it’s small on the outside but roomier on the inside. It’s just the bag I needed for when I’m on my feet all day.

#5 Paint Splattered Dress

This past month I have really started to love the whole clothes splattered with paint look. This stunning paint splattered dress I found on the blog daretodoityourself. It looks so high end and expensive but in reality only cost a few dollars to make. #Reason251 why I love d.i.y’s.
