Ahhhhh I love this sooo much. Take a white shirt and embellish the sleeves with crazy bells or buttons. So. Cool. I’m really enjoying all the LFW streetstyle that’s filtering through, Londoners have such quirky style and I am sure that the next couple of days and weeks will see a heap of inspiration. I have to thank the lovely Shini of Park and Cube and Jen of the Style Crusader for the pics below, and for being my eyes on the street at Somerset House. I’m not even going to begin to describe how much I wish I was there again this season.

I have to say that style on the streets of the fashion weeks always inspires me to DIY soooo much, its always so much more quirky, real and do-able than what you see in magazine spreads and on the runway. Don’t let the relaxed nonchalance of the subjects fool you though, these outfits didn’t happen over night. What you are seeing is the culmination of hours of outfit planning. I’ve trawled the net for some up to the minute streetstyle DIY inspiration. Enjoy!

So I’ve been having a bit of a think about my blog, and have decided that I really want it to be more than just an outlet of my DIY related ramblings. Your support has been overwhelming since I started this blog, and I want it to be a directory that you come to as a place for all the DIY ideas that you need, when you’ve a project in mind, or when you just need to be inspired. From now on I am going to be focusing on three things – my own DIY projects (and gosh I have lots of ideas!), tracking down other DIY bloggers and showcasing their projects, and finally, sourcing DIY inspiration from streetstyle, lookbooks, magazine editorials, runway shows and just about everywhere else. To say thank you for all your support, I’ll be starting a giveaway of one of my DIYs this weekend. It was pretty popular so I hope when I post about it you’ll all get on board!
You can probably also see that I have been rejigging my sidebar, trying to make it easier for you to find what you’re looking for. I’m constantly inspired by what I see to DIY, and I thought it was time I made it easier for you to be a part of that. Remember, if you have done or seen any great DIYs, please let me know. Share the love and DIY! x
Thought I’d give you a little montage of a few of my DIYs. Hope you like!
