DIYDIY: Studded Shorts!

Sometimes it’s easy to get bored with things in our closets, but before you start making a donate pile, consider studding! Studding is such an easy way to spruce up an old item. Almost any item can be studded but the trick is finding the best way to arrange the studs on whatever piece you use. I took this pair of shorts and arranged a pretty pattern of pyramid and heart-shaped studs to give them an edgy look while still keeping the feminine flair.  
 
Materials needed:
  • Various shapes/sizes of studs
  • Clothing item you’d like to stud (cardi, denim cutoffs, booties, etc.)

Here are some more in depth instructions just in case:
  1. Map out your preferred arrangement of studs on the piece you’re studding and take a photo of it. Use the photo as a guide to make sure that you keep the spacing/pattern consistent throughout the piece. 
  2. Press and attach studs according to your guide. Don’t forget to push the prongs in using a flat, hard tool like the end of a screwdriver or the end of a butter knife to make sure that they don’t poke out. 
Don’t be afraid to get really creative with your stud patterns. You don’t even have to limit yourself to standard pyramid studs. Use heart or star-shaped studs to make your piece extra cute or add spikes for a fierce Gaga-esque look.

Hi Friends, it’s Jen again from Jenloveskev. I hope you are all having a fabulous summer. Today, for our Art Inspired Fashion post, we are going to look at a Georgia O’Keeffe painting.
 

 

It’s titled “Deer’s Skull with Pedernal” and was painted in 1936. I chose this particular painting by Georgia O’Keeffe because I was drawn to the colors and how calm and serene the painting feels. 
 
 

I was instantly inspired to create an outfit from the painting. I wanted to feel like a traveler; someone out to make their own path. This painting made me want to explore the desert and find neat treasures along the way.
 
 
These shorts are super comfortable to walk around in, and the pattern on them is so fun and fashionable – the colors are just beautiful.
 
 
 
This cross shoulder bag is great for collecting all the trinkets you find along your journey!
 
 
These Jeffrey Campbell wedges are the perfect exploring shoe. The wedge isn’t very high, so they’re easy to walk in. The neutral color helps makes your legs look extra long too!
 
 
Bonus! Layer it all up with some cool necklaces and lots of bracelets and you’re good to go. Whether you are a trailblazer in the city or the desert, this is the perfect summer outfit.

Guest BloggerArt Inspired Fashion by Jen of Jenloveskev: Henri Matisse

 
Hey everyone! It’s Jen again from Jenloveskev. Here we are with the 2nd installment of our Art Inspired Fashion posts. This month I decided to choose a famous French painter because I am going to Paris next month for a week!! I am so excited. One of my favorite painters is Henri Matisse. He used such beautiful bold colors, and every painting is a joy to look at. That is why I chose this Seville Still Life painting; it is so full of life with all the contrasting patterns. 
 
 
 I didn’t want to be so literal with my interpretation, but I did look around for a fancy couch in a red room to take pictures. I guess we are in short supply of those in my neck of the woods. Haha!
 
 
  Anyway, when I saw this dress I knew it would be perfect. Not only for this painting but for summer as well. I love the floral print and the colors that are used, not to mention how cute the collar is. Isn’t it adorable?
 
 
 
 
 I swear the color of this dress is the same color of the background of the painting. I see lots of remixing in our future together!!
