balmain blazer + phillip starck ghost chair. NOT

Photobucket

  • my studded blazer is finally finished. FINALLY.
  • it took me two days to stud. (almost a month in reality, i ran out of studs, lost interest in finishing it, etc.)
  • this is my favorite DIY ever. next to my amelie studded boots.
  • i suggest that you stud 'vertically' not horizontally (i mean, row wise). this way you tend to stud straighter. methinks.
  • i'll take a picture of the front next time i wear it.
  • we were again in ikea in france and i got asked 3 times where i bought the blazer. SO PROUD.

  • some of you were asking what i bought last time. that'll be hopefully my next post.
  • today, i got this phillip starckish ghost chair. PRETTY RAD.

  5. hi!

    i've been interested in studding my own shorts and blazers but i don't know how!

    where would i find the studs? and do i just stab them through the fabric? isn't it pointy on the inside-- how would i wear my shorts/jackets then?

    :( please help.

  6. Fabulous DIY, I love how youre studding just about everything and it always turns out so well. I just thrifted a white blazer which I am hopefully studding, except I am chopping the sleeves off.. I mean, wearing a blazer in this heat just equals to suicide!

    I can't wait for IKEA to open in Bulgaria, it is my favorite spot, too.

  12. Terrific job with the jacket! I know I wouldn't have the patience to do this though I'd be really tempted to...

    But it looks really great. Wonder how Balmain justifies charging that much for their version even if it's leather?

  18. That blazer is AMAZING! I'm not tempted to attack a white blazer myself, it doesn't look that hard, though i'm sure it'd take a lot of time, right?
    Can't get over how good it looks!

  19. Wow, I love it and you rock for finishing it! I started studding a huge bag about a year ago and haven't finished yet! I always start DIY projects that never end ^o^
