Who knew that there would actually be some spare time to do this? Thank my lucky stars for this incredible day job(go on-air, do nothing. go on-air, do nothing. repeat 50x)!

So today I decided to finally get a move on with this simple DIY project that involved some nuking and a little bit of [hand]sewing (since i couldn't lug the machine to the office:P). Just basically took a dated long vest that cost next to nothing, a thick sequin trim (costs around Php 30++ at your nearest fabrics depot), sew together and cut up the excess length from the vest... and voila, the result is an über cost-friendly and current piece.:)

I'm sure we've all noted that sequins, paillettes and the like are big for this season, so this is great by adding that subtle pop of shinin' shimmerin' splendid without attracting too much attention.

I know I'm still far from being in the league of ingenious DIYers, but I'm happy with myself for making a bit of headway. Now, we'll just have to see how I'm going to style this..
