DIY Inspiration: A bunch of chokers

These cute little bastards have been around for a little while now, and I’ve wanted to try to make a few of them on my own for a very long time. So I got into it, and found some inspiration for future DIY projects and this is what I stumbled upon. Actually, I still have like a full list of other chokers I also fell in love with, but this is the VIP selection that I’m desperately needing right now.

Especially that Balmain piece of heaven, so stay tuned, cause I’m gonna do my best to recreate the hell out of that one.

Who am I trying to fool? It’s obvious I’m gonna recreate the 90% of them. Let’s be honest, none is very difficult to copy.

Balmain is number 5 in case you’re wondering.

I know a few of them are hella expensive, but since this is inspiration and I’m poor, who cares.

Hope you like this as much as I do!

Thanks for reading🙂



#ArtistThursday: Elise Palmigiani

French but with italian origins, this painter gets inspiration mainly from landscapes she has come across in Europe and America, and then translates her own perception into palette knife artworks with intense colors, being able to communicate different emotions.

Judith Leiber Couture amazing clutches

A couple of weeks ago, I shared a few embellished bags I found online, and since then, there was this designer’s clutches I couldn’t stop thinking about.

I think I don’t really need to tell you that I’m dying to go and try to recreate them, to make my own DIY version of all of them, because, obviously, I’m never gonna be able to pay for them. Blame it on poverty.
This is like pure art, I can’t even handle it. I have no idea in what situation a normal person would be able to wear it, unless you’re Lady Gaga, but I would love to have one only to admire it every night before going to sleep.

4 – Blueberry Candy Clutch Bag
5 – Skull Bela Lugosi Crystal Evening Clutch Bag, Silver Jet/Multi
6 – Top Hat Crystal Clutch Bag, Jet Multicolor
7 – Fred French Bulldog Crystal Clutch Bag, Silver

9 – Castle Crystal Clutch Bag, Multi
10 – Fountain Grand Army Plaza Crystal Evening Clutch Bag, Silver

The funny thing is that I started and I was like “Ok, I’m only gonna share 6”, hell no, I had to share 12, and would have loved to share more.

Don’t you dare to tell me this is not real art. This is what everyone should be aspiring to. Well maybe not everyone, but mostly.

My absolute favorite has to be the skull one, I seriously need to go and try to DIY it, wish me luck.

Hope you like it!
