I Dream of DIY
Every few months I do this weird thing where I decide on a certain “look” for the season: Disco Housewife, Downtown Powerbitch, Rocker Pageant Princess, etc. It rarely pans out (’cause really, who can afford a new wardrobe every few months?), but it’s fun to play around with these little capsule collections in my head.
This time around, I’m still loving the ’70s secretary look, and I feel like even if I can’t revamp my ENTIRE closet, I can still incorporate some of the elements of my little fantasy. I mean, retro styles are fairly easy to acquire with a little digging at thrift stores, and modernizing old clothes shouldn’t be that difficult. So I’m wondering…could I DIY my own capsule collection?
Here’s what I’m thinking:
Then, once the elements are in place, add a few current accessories and the fun really begins!
DIY projects aren’t really my strong suit since they require things like WORK and PATIENCE, but I think I could try some of the simpler ideas and maybe call in the pros for the complicated stuff.
What do you think? Ever tried something similar?
