You enter a shop, your eye catches a gorgeous top, your mind goes back to your wardrobe and you gleefully realize that you have a jacket that perfectly matches it. Then you see the price tag and you wonder, could I afford this top if I don’t eat for a week?
Beautiful clothes and their devilish price tags have an ability to induce a wishing session. You wish your parents were rich enough, you wish you were earning more or at least had the ability to starve yourself more, you wish brands were not such profit making machines earning 200 % profit even after discount. Well looks like your fervent prayers have been answered, fashion has been made affordable.
A new league of Do it yourself (DIY) fashion bloggers has arrived. Their indigenous techniques and personal style have made fashion accessible and affordable to all.
So here is my pick of top 5 DIY fashion bloggers (in no particular order).
God bless internet!!
By Jenni Radosevich, this blog has some pretty interesting and simple DIY projects. Covering a wide variety of categories including male DIY, her projects are one of the best I have come across. Her book ‘I SPY DIY STYLE’ has been featured across various media platforms.
This is a unique site by Marisa Lynch. She creates new dresses from used pieces under a budget of 1$ per day. She has some innovative ideas of redoing old clothes. Definitely worth a click!
A personal favorite, this blog by Carly.J.Cais has some fantastic DIY projects. But what makes this site so interesting is that she lists out some of the best DIY fashion blogs on the internet.
One of the best blogs for accessories (waiting to do the glove with ring DIY!). Inspired by both street style and runway fashion, the blog features both easy and complex projects. Check it out!
This blog by Grace Atwood has been featured across various media outlets. Her weekly runway inspired DIY projects have become very popular. An extensive and interesting blog is worth a glimpse.
These and many more blogs have revolutionized fashion. Couture or street, chic or edgy, bohemian or runway; get any look you want without burning a hole in your pocket. Look your fashionable best by just following a few simple steps. If you have a passion for fashion, you now know where to go.
These are just my personal favorites. There are a host of other sites to choose from. What are your favorites?
