DIY Studded Denim Jacket

Denim Jacket - Levi from eBay
Studs - eBay
Velvet Dress - Topshop
Feather Belt - Urban Outfitters

This jacket is my absolute baby at the moment, I am SO in love with it. I cant even tell you how long I've been lusting after the Ragged Priest studded jackets, their stand in Oxford Circus Topshop is like my wardrobe heaven, but at £90 a jacket, I finally came to the harsh realisation it just wasnt going to happen for me! So a bit of DIY soon solved this, and after paying a tenner for the jacket, and a tenner for the studs, I got the finished thing for a fraction of the price! It took me a pretty long time to sit and put 100 studs through thick denim, and my fingers got a bit sliced up, but I'd say it was worth it. I'm literally living in it at the moment, I love the edge it gives to any outfit, just cant get enough studs in my life these days!

Just about to drag myself and my very heavy and disgruntled cat across London to Sean's for the weekend, absolutely dreading the journey as the weather is grimmm so transport will be packed! The dirty looks you get walking through Canary Wharf with a yowling cat are not fun, you'd think I had three heads.

  4. That jacket looks awesome! I may have diy my denim jacket up a tad once I manage to find a cheap one. I really don't like the thought of handing over £40 for one in Topshop!
