spring asos edit



I've put myself on a budget for the time being while I plan for two trips this year, but that doesn't mean I won't be doing my fair share of window shopping. I'm pretty much always browsing the ASOS site for some DIY inspiration. Right now stripes and flirty silhouettes are high up on my list so I hope to film something as soon as I find the right fabric!

mondays


Sometimes a twist on the basics is just what you need in your closet. This ASOS shirt is a new favorite of mine. I love a high collar so anytime I get to wear one is a good time. It comes in three colors which is kind of a problem because I feel like I now need it in black & khaki.

easy going

DIY BurdaStyle Dress (pattern here), Sole Society flats

This dress pattern has proven time and time again to be one of my favorites. The simplicity of the dress makes it quite a versatile piece. I have a ton of left over fabric from my Halloween costume and decided to put it to good use. The pattern seems to be made for something a little more lightweight but I plan to make this dress in every color so I'll try that next time. San Diego seems to have skipped spring and has been in full blown summer mode, so sewing up this little number was perfect. Also you may have noticed that the blog has gotten a mini face lift. Let's see how many times I can tweak the layout this year.

take-two


I remember the early days of Style Saint, when the site was just starting out and was a community that people could come together and share inspiration. Fast forward and now the site is producing beautiful clothing that is also making strides in sustainability. The Take-Two top is on sale in black and white! So soft & just the right amount of sexy. Click the links to shop below~ I've also included some of my other favorite pieces. Leave a comment and let me know your favorite piece!

road to the west

Old Navy jacket, Random tee (similar), DIY pleated skirt (similar), Steve Madden boots (similar)

Editing these photos to the Cowboy Bebop soundtrack makes everything about 1000% more dramatic. In all the best ways. Anyone else have a favorite soundtrack to work to? Anyways, a couple different things are going on in these photos. Yes, the hair is much darker and I feel more at home with it. You are also looking at the project I finished before creating the marble bralette, which is this simple pleated skirt. Pleated skirts are super fun to make once you get the math down. I suppose I will end this post with a cheers to the weekend. Cheers!

diy marbled bralette


When I read Honestly WTF's latest paper DIY, I truly thought WTF. Can this technique be applied to clothing?? So I set out on my latest DIY and thought it would be perfect for a bralette! The shaving cream marbling method has been around for awhile, and it also appears to be the easiest.

Tutorial below the break!
