stud finder

alexa in phillip lim

jason rider (?) in Phillip Lim

First Alexa, then this dude...I still want to DIY myself a version of this Phillip Lim button up. I actually ordered myself a bunch of conical studs a few months ago in an uncharacteristic fit of motivation, only to find they were too large and looked way too much like rows of silver nipples. Anyways, I think maybe I'm feelin' gold a little more now, à la these gloves?

Hello there beautiful
I stumbled across your blog tonight.
And wanted to tell you how wonderfully refreshing it is!!

And you can get studded gloves off Ebay.
Or DIY them yourself.
It's not hard at all.

Peace Love && Lipstick
XOXOXO

oh! i completely forgot about that top- wasn't it one of those teen vogue diys? in any case it needs to happen in my closet asap. i wonder how many studs are needed. having many leftover could be dangerous to the rest of my clothes...

Cosmic! That first image has totally been on my desktop for ages, and made me ask my mom to mail me my old bedazzler... which is here... I'm now waiting for the perfect blouse...

That shirt is a great example of studs done right. Damn, just when I was getting really sick of them!

that would be rad, but getting studs into the tips of the fingers might be a weee bit tricky

miss milki said...

I want one too! I don't think I could DIY the perfect straight line grid myself though! :)
