Monday of Mon-DIY ?

follow my blog if you like it . iTweet @glister_blister
check out my Chictopia & Lookbook.nu


Sorry for the lack of posting during the weekends. Instead of relaxing, I was actually VERY busy. I didn't even get a chance to get a blissful 8 hour sleep at all. I sleep at 3am on the morning of saturday, then had to wake up at 8. On the night of Saturday, I had a surprise birthday planned for my friend. Therefore I arrived home at 2 and I had to wake up at 7 for church service on the Sunday. Then on Sunday, I couldn't even get a small nap because the schedule is also packed! So here's my post!

I guess the reason because I couldn't blog is because I use the free time to do my DIY projects. I've got the tutorial photos already but I haven't got the chance to create a write up for it. I will do so sometime during this week :D Anyway, today am showing you guys the 2 projects I did over the weekend. I can't wait to blog on the tutorial.

11jan
my DIY back shred shirt . i love the way it drapes very much !
11jan-7
11jan-2
DIY studded headband, cotton.ink grey melange shawl, DIY shredded shirt, Zara blue tank top, DIY patchwork navy leggings, cross necklace from Valencia, random bangles, Chanel bag, studded shoes from Hong Kong
jan11-4
double draping ! the cotton ink scarf drapes beautifully over the front while the shredded shirt drapes beautifully at the back ;)
11jan-6
11jan-5
11jan-3
best thing about these shirts? you can wear different kinds of tanks/tees underneath to make it different everytime you wear it ;D

just realized am wearing THREE DIY pieces at the same time. I don't know about you guys, but I feel some kind of pride when I wear my DIY projects (especially when people ask where I got them. hahahaha) Anyways, that's all for this blue monday. I'm actually in class while am editting these pics and blog post. I rather blog than listen to the teacher.

oh am looking for a good DSLR camera, if you've got recommendations, feel free to comment :D my current options are the Canon G11 or Canon 450D .. but am open to ANY suggestions !

you totally get the rebel look,chelle!! you rock!!!!hahahaha

Valencia Lia said...

Wowwww,I really love love the DIYs you did here girl !

The back shredded tee with the patchwork leggings is just awesome:) you're getting better and better at DIYs. I surely need to learn from you. Ahaha

And together with your studded heels,this makes a perfect outfit! Ohhh,I'm so envious of your Chanel bag toooo<3

Thanks so much on your feedback with my photos Michelle. Yeaa,I always use imageshack for my photos. But it was screwed up that day,so I had no choice but to use tinypic. Yeaa,I only tried using flickr once.

Maybe I should switch to flickr too like you! Its really good to spend some time with DIYs as well. For me,my weekend was just relaxing with my love and going for the tattoo convention!

Yesssss,the convention was soooo good! Its held once a year here in the early Jan,my aim is to get tattooed at the convention next year!

Big hugsssss :)

Valencia Lia said...

Ohhh I forgot to add,between a Canon G11 or Canon 450D. I would choose the 450D:)

But I feel you should really go for the Canon 500D. Its a really affordable yet really good DSLR camera.

Nathalie said...

I'm not sure which diy project I'm liking best but surely they're both great, you have such creativity! If I had so much time I would probably copy something of you! Have a nice day, hugs!

Indy said...

That shirt is making me drool! It's uber sexy and you look so fab in it!

Manju said...

i love the diy shirt

Diane said...

Hy! Thanks so much for your comment :D

I am loving this outfit! You are great at DYI projects. They look so good! I was actually in love with a very special shirt that had the same back cut, which I bough this Saturday, but I won't be able to show it until the warm weather comes along... :P

Anyway, have a super fun week and get some sleep!

kiss

FashionJazz said...

Luv ur DIYS!! Have a good Monday, hope u getsome sleep : ) xx

A N A S T A S Y A said...

the DIY tees is cool!! I love it, you must have chosen perfect basic tee so it produce a beautiful drapery like that.

oh and as for DSLR instead of Canon 450D, I suggest you to use Canon 500D. They added video featured on it so you could produce video with blurry-to-sharp effect.

gudluck on finding your DSLR, mine is the old Canon EOS 400D :)

Candy Kawaii Lover said...

DIY looks awesome! Get a 450D like mine!

Nadia Kamballa said...

Great DIY pieces! Thanks for all your comments on my blog..

I don't know much about DSLR, but I often heard that 450D is a keeper.. :P

love the diy top :) xx

Leah said...

The DIY tee is so fab Michelle.

Re: camera recommendations... the G11 is not a DSLR but it is a very powerful point and shoot. I use that as my abck-up camera. It's like the point and shoot of professionals. If you want a handy camera, then this is the perfect choice.

The 450D is a DSLR. If you will just rely on the kit lens, then the output is not that good. So you have to purchase a separate lens like the 24-105mm or the 50mm, depending on your needs.

If you have further questions, don't hesitate to ask. I'm such a Canon addict. xoxo

I love those kind of DIY tees. You did a great job with it! And those leggings are insane and so original. I would go with the 450D.
I tested it out and loved it but cant afford it yet
Thanks for the comments. your blog is an inspiration
