Nude Patent Heels from Piperlime (DIY tutorial here)
Pants designed by one of the most iconic women’s fashion designers in the world. Heels spray painted by an optimist and a Yorkie in a cardboard box. This is how Gwyneth and I do high/low style. And now that we’ve got our own copy of I Spy DIY Style, we’re sure to have a few new ideas to throw into the mix soon.
Gwyneth and I have been following and loving Jenni Radosevich’s blog, I Spy DIY, for a while. She takes everything you learned about fashion from watching The Devil Wears Prada and proves it wrong. She proves that fashion can, in fact, be friendly, accessible and affordable. (Side note: we mean no disrespect to The Devil Wears Prada. It will forever be a favorite of ours!)
So meeting Jenni at the launch party for her new book, I Spy DIY Style, was a true treat! I just barely remembered my manners and started with a “congratulations” before begging for details on when she’d be posting a tutorial for the skirt she was wearing.
Jenny and host Coach definitely know how to throw a party for those of us who love to create. With a variety of stations, they had ways for us to get a DIY fix – even before we all got home with our new books. I made a custom bookmark, and with a few easy steps, you can too. We’ll definitely be making a few more – these would make fantastic small gifts.
