$1660? No Thanks.... $30? Yes, Please!

We are LOVING the Isabel Marant Spring '10 RTW Collection. We've had our eyes on these boots since Fashion Week a while back, and now we finally did a DIY! The new DIY Isabel Boot can be made from anywhere between $20 and $30 depending on your personal taste.  Isabel Marant used less chain than we did, so you can easily adapt to your liking. Enjoy :)

D.I.Y. Lanvin

We are LOVING the Chainklet right now.  First things first, it took about 20 minutes to create.  We simply cut a bunch of chains in similar lengths, sewed them to some ribbon and tied a bow!  These serve as necklaces, bracelets and Anklets! We were def inspired by Lanvin Spring 2010 Collection, where every look sported some sort of chain or strap around the ankles. Try it! Sooo funky fresh.

paired with a pretty blouse, structured bags and costume jewelry. When pulled
altogether, the look is so glamorous! Time to raid the vintage stores!
