Studded errything has been all over the interwebs lately.
We love, love, love the look and wanted to attempt one of our faves in this
edition of DIY with the studded denim shorts. This really easy project has a
Get studs out and pliers ready to craft with!
You’ll need approximately 40 studs.
Plan where you would like to stud your denim.
Although top of the front pocket is a great look, we choose to stud our back
pockets. Use a permanent marker to plan where your studs will be placed. This
ensures that your studs are in (relatively) straight lines.
Keep studding till you have a finished product.
Rock your studded denim, and use extras to place onto other items (not to be worn together, please. One at a time), such as these rad studded converse shoes.
With last week’s blast of warm weather, we gleefully ran to our closets and started to pull out our spring staples: shorts, skirts, dresses…Since technically it is spring, it got us thinking about what shoes we’ll need this season. Here, we’ve rounded up some of our classic favourites and new kicks we’re coveting for this season.
And hey, you can never really have enough shoes, right?
If you’re looking for some investment pieces, these Gucci Tri-color suede platform sandals with a splash of mint (we adore mint) are great for spring, and can be transitioned into colder weather with some opaque black tights.
An alternative to leopard, these Haircalf Giraffe Slipper by Charles Philip offer “cushioned leather insole, an indented toe flap and rubber soles. They arrive packaged in a beautiful box, encased in a shoe bag and scented with tiny sachets – how precious!” Precious, indeed.
We’re pretty sure you can wear these Alexander Wang Chloe perch-trimmed leather sandals (bit of a mouthful) just about anywhere. The neutral colours with a pop of “perch” (a pretty peachy-coral) would look great with some black skinny jeans and a white tee.
We can’t write this post without mentioning a favourite on the fourth floor – a nice crisp pair of white Converse Chuck Taylor All Star’s. We’re personally fans of the low cut, but the high tops are fun too. Classic, comfortable, stylish and great for riding a bike or wearing with jeans or shorts.
ALDO’s Calcagni wedges – if we can wear these many hours a day without (too much) pain – you know they’re a good thing. This season they come in a variety of colours from neutrals to neons and can add a little cheap and cheerful punch to any ensemble. Highlighter yellow? Why not?
