Carrying on from my mention of chained boots yesterday, there’s nothing better than a quick and simple update to your favourite wardrobe staple to change its look entirely and double the wearability. These removable boot straps were so simple to make and looked perfect worn with a pair of black ankle boots. You can read the full tutorial on the Witchery website here.

And just like that I’m back in Hong Kong, plunged headfirst into winter and the rugged up outfit requirements that go with it. Sayonara sun, surf and sandy feet! I was getting sick of you anyways… (umm not really). To get back into the spirit of the cooler months I’ve been on the lookout for DIY inspiration for my favourite winter staple – the ankle boot. This season I didn’t have to look very far at all to find the ultimate inspiration – chained boots. What’s not to love, particularly when it’s clear that Chanel, Givenchy and Alexander Wang are just as on board as I am (or is it the other way around?). Stay tuned for my super simple DIY (you can stock up on your supplies here).

You may remember earlier this year I was inspired by the patched jackets and jeans on the streets around fashion week, and knew it would be a super easy DIY to recreate. To celebrate the opening of the first Claudie Pierlot store in Hong Kong, we recently got together to recreate this trend using their french grunge inspired custom kit, complete with loads of fun iron on patches with cute french words and images. I’ve outlined the steps below, but honestly this is the easiest project around so I doubt you need detailed instructions!
- A bunch of fun patches
- An items to attach them to – something like jeans or a denim jacket works perfectly.
- An iron
1. Place the patches on the pockets of the jeans (or shoulders of the jacket – or really anywhere you want!).
2. With the iron on a low setting, iron the patches down. To be extra careful you can put a piece of cloth between the two if you are worried about melting the patches. Leave to cool down and you’re ready to go!
I’m super excited because a bunch of fun people from all over Hong Kong have crafted their own project using the Claudie Pierlot custom kit which are to be silent auctioned off tomorrow night at the Claudie Pierlot store opening, with all proceeds going to the World Vision Famine Program. I’ll be there all night and can’t wait to meet you all!
Loving all the cute DIY projects! See you tomorrow night for drinks and DIY!
