Rock those stars!

During Christmas break last year, I got bored of a lot of the clothes in my wardrobe and went on a mad reconstruction spree. While many of the clothes were carefully nipped and tucked, some just received some surface enhancement, like the skirt below.



I bought this skirt a long time ago but I hardly ever wore it. I was going to give it away at first but then i changed my mind in favour of revamping it a little. I've always loved stars, so I wanted to find a way of putting some kind of star motif on it.

At first I was going to print it but I decided to be a little more creative and embellish it with washers. I had used washers a few times before to make jewelry but never anything like this. So I began working on it and a few hours and sore fingers later, I had a new pimped out skirt with washer stars!

(Shame on me, I still haven't worn the thing.)


I'm not the only one that's really into stars these days as they were prominent motifs on the Yves Saint Laurent and Chanel Spring/Summer 2008 runways.

If you're into stars like Karl and I(haha!) have a look at these cute, fun items below.
