DIY – Ribbon Body from Park and Cube

Shin from Park & Cube does some killer DIY’s which I refer to regularly. They are great because they usually require minimum outlay for maximum diy fun. Here is her recent ribbon bodysuit. I am not a major lace and floral ribbons girl but the technique could work just as well using a black bodysuit and chains or a blue bodysuit and ropes (for a nautical look). You could even put the pins on the underside of the fabric or do away with pins altogether and do little stitches if you wanted. Great Technique.

Sometimes maxis are a bit too bulky and sack like but this one is perfect.

DIY – Front Scalloped Shorts

There are usually so many pairs of unwanted high-waisted pants in the op shop, usually with an unflattering wide leg. Lucky I keep coming up with ideas about how to DIY them! This looks like a simple snip and sew job.

DIY Wah Nails

In the last 6 months London has gone bonkers for crazy nail desings, due in most part to the opening of Wah Nails on Kingsland Road in the East End. CRazy fun designs that have previously only been ventured by few are now all over the place, including the topshop basement (a sure sign that EVERYONE is onboard). The images above are the Wha’s tumblr which has a huge amount of inspiration.Β  However, whilst trawling the internet, found a really cool DIY for doing wah inspired nails. Gem from Gem Fatale’s Style Blog has obviously put a lot of time and patience into this and really shows what you can DIY when you put your mind to it. She has videoed the whole process for anyone who wants to follow suit. Her finished product looked like this:
