OOTD_94 + Polyvore!

DSC_1081 I am always really inspired by London fashion, and I learn about a lot of it from Youtubers. I think this would be similar to their typical "uni" outfit, which is where I wore this today. As always, my Docs are also great for rainy days. And finally I thought that the blue beanie was a good pop of color to brighten up a neutral toned outfit.

Last night I took a break from my studio work and played around with my Polyvore a bit because I hadn't in a while. I styled some outfits with the "Big Lita" by Jeffrey Campbell, my dream shoe at the moment. You can check out the outfits here!

DIY_Studded Beanie

DSC_0742 It's been a while since I've posted a DIY, but this is a good one! It's simple, inexpensive, fast, and very on trend. I have seen these beanies for sale online for at least $20. Don't be crazy and pay that price when you can make one for under 5 bucks. Mine was $4! You could even stud one that you already own--even better!

Start with a cheap beanie. Mine is from the men's section at Target, and was $4 as mentioned before. You will also need around 12 studs, give or take a few. Mine were from a thrifted belt. Speaking of which, that belt has supplied all of my past studding projects for the last 5 months. Score.

Begin attaching the studs to your beanie. I liked the way mine looked with a folded edge. Attach the studs and fold down the prongs using a tweezer. If you need extra help, check out my tips in this past tutorial of mine.

Continue studding all the way around the edge of your beanie. You can do the spacing however you'd like. This should only take you a few minutes!

And here's the finished product! I loooove how this had added some extra spice to my plain beanie, and adds femininity to something from the men's section.
