I rarely let clothes languish in my closet, but this jacket hasn't made too many public appearances in the past couple of years. I always felt it was a little...plain, so last weekend I decided to do something about it. I picked up some studs at fabric store and turned it into my first DIY project. The store sold a tool you're meant to use with the studs, but I just hacked away with a small kitchen knife. There are probably a million ways why you shouldn't do it like this, but I'm just saying it can be done. I haven't washed it yet but I'll probably put it the delicate cycle in a mesh bag, in case the studs come apart.
I got the pants and shoes recently using gift cards left over from my birthday and Christmas 2010 (I'm still on my self-imposed spending freeze), with both items massively marked down. More on that in another post, I've rambled enough!
