DIY it!

As you know, I’m always looking for ways to recreate my favorite trends on the cheap. This week, I would like to introduce a new segment DIY it! I’ll pick some of my favorite DIY links and share them with all of you.

Leather itself has a certain luxurious appeal, but quilting makes this textile feel absolutely opulent. Maybe it’s because we associate it with the infamous Chanel bag or maybe it’s because it adds an unexpected cool element to your overall look (or both!). quilted motoShredded Sweater + Quilted LeatherKENZO Black quilted leather sweater + GIVENCHY  black pleated stretch cady skirt

Although, it would certainly be nice to afford that Kenzo sweater or a real Chanel handbag, this beauty on a budget needs to find another alternative. Lucky for me (and you), Liz over at Cotton and Curls shows us how to update a basic sweatshirt with quilted leather patches. The tutorial is super easy to follow and it doesn’t even look like she made it herself!
