DIY Studded Converse

Boo-yah! My Converse is now blinged with studs!

I love it! It wasn't too hard to do. I did it while sitting in the passenger seat on the way to wave rock!

Now, what to do with all the left over studs?

Fancy Pot

Terracotta pots are always the cheapest pots, but ohhhh so boring. It's just so blah! So I decided to paint one of my pots.

Here are some examples that left me drooling!

I really love the pastel colors! Cheery and bright.

Unfortunately, I only have a red spray can and gold acrylic paint. Even then, there doesn't seem to be much in the spray can, so gold it shall be. 

There's not much contrast between the gold and the orange terracotta. I was a little sad that it didn't have that pop of color. Hmmm... maybe I'll update the pot later on with better colors, so in the mean time...Ta-dah!

white t-shirt make-over

I have this white cotton t-shirt from Uniqlo. It was cheap, something like $5 bucks! Anyway, I bought it and haven't worn it since. It's a little too baggy, a little plain and pretty much non-flattering. It's an okay shirt to lounge about at home or to sleep in. But no way was I gonna wear this out. I had some sequinned fabric from a skirt that I hemmed, so I decided to add some jazz to lacklustre t-shirt.

I used a fitted top as a template and cut around it. I also trimmed the sleeves as they were a little long.

And here was Panya eyeing me from the hall way. She just woke up! And wanted a snack!

So here is my jazzed up top! It's way better than before. More fitted and a little bit more interesting than a blah baggy t-shirt!
