Don't Do It Yourself


This outfit post contains a couple of my shockingly low-quality DIY efforts. First up, the pom-pom scarf. I spent a good few weeks making a couple of these, with a 3rd one currently in the making. I'm just about perfecting the technique.... this one is perfectly wearable but a bit 'delicate'. Secondly, the shoes are another botch job of mine, which followed this simple equation;

cheap, old shoes + green glitter glue = shiny new shoes + me happy.

Again, a little rough around the edges, but I'm so glad I did it!







Vintage jacket, shoes (New Look), self-made scarf, bag (H&M), vintage belt, cardigan (Zara), skirt (Hurwundeki), vest (Topshop).


Perhaps my next project shall be some form of pom-pom bonnet? Much like the Diane Von Furstenburg hats, but more House of Harps-ish....
