After some lovely comments on my first outfit of the day (you lot a the COOTEST!) I decided I'd try another one after doing a bit of DIY clothing customisation with some studs that I recently purchased. So here's OOTD number 2!
This skirt is my favourite purchase for quite a while. I saw it in Topshop when it was originally about £45 but couldn't bring myself to part with my hard-earned cash. Then I saw it in the sale about a month later for just £12. It's been my go-to piece for a couple of months now and I absolutely adore it!
I got this blouse at a boot fair on Sunday, having been inspired to attend by Vikki at Victoria's Vintage. BEST. DECISION. EVER. I got some incredible pieces that I'll show you at some point this week and only spent £3. This blouse was brand new with tags (but minus the studs) and cost me just 50p! I'm seriously going to become a regular car boot attendee.
I bought these studs on Ebay for 99p (and FREE delivery!) from THIS SELLER.
They took a while to arrive as the were coming from China but it was SO worth the wait. I got 100 studs, so they only cost a penny each and I've still got plenty left over after customising both this blouse and a jumper.
Here's the finished blouse:
Looks pretty good I think!
I bought this chunky-knit jumper in Primark for just £8 and after seeing this studded Topshop one retailing for £42, I thought I might add a few studs to it and see how it turned out...
I think it looks pretty similar to the Topshop one and it saved me £34! I'll be living in this in winter.
I've also decided to put more effort into editing my photos. I don't know if you've noticed but I think they look a bit better.
What do you think of my DIY bits and pieces? Have you been customising anything with studs lately? I think it's a great way to breathe new life into clothing that you've stopped wearing.
