Now that it’s summer time I’ve had so much more time to make things! This outfit outfit has a few items I’ve been wanting to make for awhile but couldn’t find the time for during the semester~
A cutout denim jacket was at the top of my list! Ever since I saw this photo on tumblr I knew I had to make one. Now that I take a second look at the photo I realize that they used clear vinyl in the cutouts, whoops. But I still like my version without anything in the cutouts so it’s okay~
The jacket was $4 or $5 from the thrift store and I bleached it to a much lighter color. The silver studs are from Hobby Lobby and the pink studs are from a belt my parents got me. :D I also stitched around the cutouts so that it wouldn’t stretch too much, and to keep the fraying from going too far. Here’s a detail shot…
I also studded the collar to match the back. c; And I clipped my sassyNpunk bat hairclip, haha.
Another thing I’ve been dying to make is a high-waisted circle skirt! I used some rainbow metallic spiderwed fabric I got during last Halloween season. I’m so in love with that fabric~~
And finally, I made a ton of hair bows out of the same fabric. I kept a couple for myself and the rest are up for sale in my etsy shop. c;
Oh, and that mini-project I mentioned a couple days ago? I took some ceiling paint we had and painted 2/3 of one of my room walls with it. I have 4 different colored walls in my room and they are all reflective, so the white gives me a nice non-reflective background for photos. :] Ahh, the things my parents let me do… ♥

I absolutely adore Curve by ASOS and wanted to share with you my favourite new pieces from their collection. In fact, i just bought the Blondie tee and I’m wearing it right now! Now I just need about $500 to get the rest of the clothes!
DIY Studded Suede Pouch. Also, no sew! Under $10 by Dismount Creative here. I know this has been posted somewhere on Tumblr but 1 person I found only had a link (no picture) and the other just the picture. What I like about this tutorial is that even though I don’t have a Hobby Lobby near me, Dismount Creative provide direct links to everything you’ll need below - so you can buy it online.
