DIY_Patched Denim Jacket + Video

DIY INTRO Today I've got a classic DIY project for you, a patched denim jacket. While you may know how to sew on a patch, I wanted to share the little patch collection I've been building for a few months now, and how my final product turned out! I was also wanting to play around with my new camera now that I could record HD video, and this seemed to be the perfect project to start with! Check out my video, or see the photos of my jacket below!

I picked up this jacket over the summer at Goodwill. You may remember it from this outfit post!

Thanks so much for reading! I'll be back tomorrow with an outfit post wearing my jacket!

DSC_1223 After making this skull tee last night, I needed to wear it right away. Today Jake and I were headed to Trader Joe's so we could make lunch and also worked on some upcoming DIY projects for the holiDIY series! Tonight we're headed to the record store, so I was sure to bring a warm jacket. I picked this denim one up from Goodwill yesterday while I was shopping for tees and fabric for projects. I like the throwback vibe of this outfit and completed it with some old patterned Keds to tie the whole look together.

I'm back from my roadtrip to LA--I had such a blast! I met up with 4 of my best friends from home to enjoy the holiday weekend together.

On our first day, we hit up Amoeba Records. It's become one of our go-to places in Hollywood, and one of my favorite record stores because the prices are actually reasonable and the selection is amazing.

I love this photo of Jake and I! I'm wearing my DIY Unif-inspired tee (see my tutorial here ), a camel colored skater skirt from Forever 21, Steve Madden studded combat boots, a cheetah print bag from Cotton On, and my favorite Forever 21 sunnies.

I always come home with awesome finds--I can't wait to add these patches to my favorite vests!

We also had to walk over to Kat Von D's High Voltage Tattoo, because for as many times as I have been to LA, I had never seen it in person! Here's Jamie and I cheesin it outside in front of the huge mural.

I threw on this cross knit sweater from Forever 21 when it got cold.

Later in the day we headed to another one of our favorite spots, the Santa Monica pier and then shopped at night! I love shopping in Santa Monica because the outdoor mall is really fun. I picked up two cute rings from Brandy Melville while I was there.

thanks so much for reading--I'll hopefully be doing another post/haul soon about my trip to Pasadena for the Rose Bowl Flea Market with my friends BP and Courtney. For now, I'm totally swamped working on my studio project as we get close to the end of the quarter, but expect it in the future! xo, Paige
