Festival Style: DIY Fringe Skirt w/ @thefabjunkie

 

 

It’s HERE! Festival Season. This time of year is always so much fun. The weather gets warmer, the skin starts to show and the music gets louder. I love attending summer concerts. I always have a few lined up to attend with my bestie. Being that you can always play it up when you’re attending outdoor shows, I have the perfect DIY for you! Fringe is always in and I love showing it off in the hot weather months. Check out this easy peasy DIY!

First, you want to find a skirt with as much stretch in it. Something that’s made mostly of cotton because cotton stretches nicely and it’s a breathable fabric. I found this black skirt at Goodwill for about $7.

Next, find a skirt in YOUR closet with a length you like.

 

Then, start your first cut. I used my thumb as a guide for the width of the strips.

 

NOW CUT!

 

DO NOT rush the cuts. If you rush, the strips WILL be crooked (trust me).

 

After you complete the cuts, you can hang it on a hanger and make sure your length is accurate. I fixed mine a bit because it was super crooked (because I rushed).

 

 

Now go rock your new ON TREND Fringy Goodness!

DIY: Denim DIY Vest w/ @thefabjunkie

What’s a better way to upcycle an old denim jacket you ask? Oh, I will tell you! Turn that bad boy into a denim vest you can rock all year round!  I feel like everyone owns a denim jacket and if I’m wrong… lucky for YOU Goodwill has you covered. I picked up this 90’s Anne Klein jacket a couple of years ago from Goodwill. As you can see, I’ve already shredded it and put my touch on it. It has been sitting in the back of my closet (because this year I thrifted another denim jacket. I know, I have a denim problem) so I decided I would revamp it a bit. What I like about this jacket is that it has a boxy shape. Check out this easy peasy Denim DIY!

 

Step 1: Find a denim jacket that is a bit oversized on you.

Step 2: You’re going to use the seam line as your guide to cut. AND don’t forget your scissors.

Step 3: START CUTTING! I started RIGHT where the seam meets which can be a little hard to cut through. You can start anywhere on the sleeve using the seam to guide you.

 

Step 4: Once you get your initial cut through, you’re going to want to separate the fabric and continue to cut. When you hold the fabric together you tend to get an uneven cut. It’s fixable BUT why waste time?

 

Step 5: You can flip the jacket over on its front side to do the back part of the sleeve. Once again, I do this because I want the cleanest cut possible in one shot.

 

Step 6: Repeat on the opposite side!

 

VIOLA!

Off The Shoulder (or better known as OTS) has been taking over the fashion world for a few seasons now. We saw it last summer and now it’s back… to stay! With celebs like RiRi rocking the look, you know we all have to try it. My favorite is the OTS Button Down. It takes the classic button down (which never goes out of style) and makes it sexy.
