{DIY::Everybody Everywhere}

11 Oct

This months edition of Everybody Everywhere is right up my alley!! D.I.Y (Do It Yourself)  I am always looking for things to do myself; from home decor, clothes to accessories.  Today’s DIY is my clutch, and I love the result!  I went with a neon & neutral color scheme, but mostly because I just love the color of this zipper & this suede went perfect with it.  I shared it few months ago here.  I kind of went with trial & error, but I based my technique off of this tutorial.  I paired it with my Old Navy utility vest because I thought the greens were a great compliment to each other.  Check out my past EBEW here, here, here

      omg! this blouse has been awesome…loving that it has the equipment blouse look, but it’s so much longer…great for leggings & boots. I’ll keep you posted if I see anything else like this! Thanks for checking out my DIY look for EBEW. Headed over to see these heels now! XO

    I love the whole outfit! Especially that vest. Would you believe I pained my ring fingernails silver today and and the other nails purple?

    The clutch is super cute. I’m afraid of working with zippers or I’d try this. I just might have to learn though. The neon and neutral is fantastic.

      oh no way!! great minds think alike 🙂 I was also afraid of zippers….not gonna lie…had to take it out twice because I did it backwards..takes a little to understand, but once you get it…SO EASY! try it!!

    Wow I can’t believe you made that clutch- it’s beautiful and I love the colours you used!

    Nice job on that clutch! I don’t think I could sew a zipper to save my life, but you did some awesome work. Your whole outfit works really well together. I really like your cuff bracelet too.

    I can’t believe you made that clutch. It looks phenomenal. I love the ‘paper bag’-esque folded top.
