Well 'ello 'ello chap! Here we have a little DIY for a pleated skirt! It's been a long while since we've seen a DIY on Spin Dizzy Fall but here we are again.
Pleats are always very hard to work with but the hardest part to this is finding a nice vintage pleated skirt. I couldn't go past this black one when I found it op-shopping and decided to cut it the same length as my pleated skirt from Market HQ (post here). If you can get away with a raw hem, go for it because hemming pleats can be a nightmare!
p.s I almost got through this post without mentioning the bloody cute dog sweater!!
DIY/vintage pleated skirt,
JUNK dog sweater,
vintage bag and
Tony Bianco heels.
I'm hoping to get some new posts up this week cause I have lots of new things to show(!) but fashion week (MBFWA) is creeping up on me by the second and I'm thinking maybe I should start organising what to wear....maybe? Interesting idea.
I got a hair cut during the week and it's so damn good that you can't even tell. Of course I can because I haven't had a professional cut for over 3 years now and it took a day to psych myself up and drag myself to the dreaded salon. In the end it was excellent and was way more successful and quicker than cutting it myself as usual!
Volcom have just launched their philanthropic project 'Give Jeans A Chance', denim donation for the homeless for the second year running.
Their mission is to provide the homeless with much needed clothing leading up to the cold winter months. Donation bins will be in participating stores nationwide in which Volcom are asking people to donate a pair of old jeans. In return, donors receive a free tote, hat or DVD along with an entry into the draw for a fantastic Thrills custom motorbike and a years supply of Volcom denim.
Last year over 3,000 pairs of jeans were donated and distributed back into the homeless community…. In 2012, they want to smash that target and get everyone in need into a pair of jeans just in time for this winter. The project runs through to May 31st.
I thought this was an amazing campaign for a cause and the video was fantastic (check it, above)!! So in connection with this campaign I will be giving away a pair of Volcom jeans on SPIN DIZZY FALL (see jeans below)!
