I’m a sucker for anything colorful, sparkly and unexpected. This Sonia by Sonia Rykiel has all of those qualities so of course I fell in love with it, but not the price. Now, I have to let you guys know that I am not a very crafty person. This is one of my first DIYs, but I figured it was pretty simple and inexpensive.

Here are the supplies you will need: A grey sweater. I got this one from H&M for less than $20.

E6000 Glue or some other strong stuff and some big colorful jewels. Make sure you have enough to cover all of the buttons on the sweater. Make each one a different color.

Lay the sweater flat and line up where you want the jewels to go.

Put glue on the first button, add a jewel and hold the jewel down for a couple seconds.


And there you have it!

Collar Added

Dress Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony, Sweater Aritzia, Necklace Forever21 and c/o Stella & Dot, Heels Givenchy (60% off!), Bag Balenciaga

I have been wanting a detachable collar for a while, but didn’t want to  pay a lot since I wasn’t sure if I would wear it much. I quickly jumped on this one from Forever21 since the price was great…and boy, am I glad I did! I have always been a big fan of collared tops and blouses, so now I can add one  to all my dresses, sweaters and shirts that don’t have one! I especially love the look of a T-shirt paired with a collar. It’s a great way to transition a simple tee. I also really love these collars: one, two, three, four, five.

I’m finally adjusting to the weather in San Francisco (as bipolar as it is). I can still wear my summer items as long as I have a jacket or sweater to layer over them. Currently my favorite thing to do is layer knit sweaters over dresses. It not only keeps me warmer, but it’s a great way to dress down  some of my dressier dresses.
