OOTD_70: "Paranoid"

DSC_0341 I recently picked up this vintage tee...if 2004 can be considered vintage? at the Rose Bowl Flea Market. Confession: it's not mine. This shirt is actually a Christmas gift for Jake that accidentally never made it into my suitcase before heading home. So, I've decided to give it a wear before sending it off in the mail. Today I felt like going all black with the outfit, especially because my staple H&M leather jacket hadn't gotten any wear lately. Not sure why, I love it!

The track for today's outfit obviously has to be from the man himself, Ozzy Osbourne. The song is "Paranoid" by Black Sabbath. Listen along below while you view!

Before class, I swapped out the platforms for some black loafers. Don't you wish Litas fit into the category of school casual? I do!

DSC_1076 With Christmas around the corner, it was time to pull out my favorite festive sweater that I picked up at an H&M sale last season for 10 bucks. With the weather not that cold in AZ, I decided to pair it with the summer staple--cutoff Levi's. These two items contrast, but I kind of like that about this look. I was headed to have lunch with my friend Courtney, so I added my studded combat boots to tie the whole outfit together and make it on trend!

DIY_Leather + Vinyl Clutch

Today I am finally sharing with you the DIY for the leather + vinyl clutch I wore in one of my recents outfit posts (see it here!). I was inspired by this clutch, and wanted to make my own. This is a very simple project with a great final product, so try it out!

1_Purchase some clear vinyl and black faux leather. I got mine at my local craft store. As for the vinyl, try to get one with a decent weight to it, so that it provides a little structure to the clutch

2_Create a pattern out of printer paper. I first used a standard 8.5" x 11" to be the size of the pouch. I then cut another sheet of paper into a point, to resemble an envelope. You have freedom to create as long or short of a flap as you'd like. Tape these two pieces together and cut the shape out of the black faux leather. As for the clear vinyl, just cut out a piece the size of an 8.5" x 11" sheet.

3_Here is what the two fabric shapes should look like

4_By this step, I have hand stitched the two pieces together. I attempted to machine stitch this, but was pretty unsuccessful. Hand sewing got the job done, but I would like to try and find a method in the future that is a little cleaner looking.

Purchase a snap and follow the instructions according to the package to attach it to the clutch. You will probably need a hammer to attach it onto the fabric.

Also at this step, I have cut a piece of cardboard that fits inside the clear part of the clutch. This is going to give the clutch structure, because it is quite flimsy without it.

Cut a piece of your faux leather and wrap it around the clutch. Attach with hot or tacky glue.

Insert this piece into the clutch with the leather side out. It will blend right in!

And here is the final product! Get previews of all of my DIY's by following along on my Instagram, @punkrockparti

Part of the fun of coming home from college is getting to rummage around in my closet and see what kinds of things I left behind during my last move. This heart purse is definitely a statement piece, and is from one of the designer collections from Target years ago!
