DIY DAY: thigh-high boot spats, body harness

10:29 AM


First off I'd like to thank all those who have participated or have already expressed interest in my Chickdowntown giveaway. Of course it is still wide open, so if you haven't checked it out yet, then make sure to do so by clicking here. I'm also anxious in finding out who gets to bring home them uber-hawt LNA Leggings.:) I also apologize if i've been late in commenting back (my Blogger kinda sucks right now), but i'll most certainly catch up in record time:)

DIY thigh-high boot spats, DIY body harness, tailored blazer, M&S drawstring tank dress, Janilyn shoes


I have taken an extreme liking to DIYing things myself. I mean, if you can make, then why buy, right? Totally right up any recessionista's alley.:) I got inspired to do the spats from a how-to posted by the totally gorgeous Maegan, whose blog I have fallen in love with since I encountered it just very recently (I know, I HAVE been hiding under a rock). Always charming and full of inspiration, her site is an absolute must-see. Make sure to check it for the instructions.:) I have yet to buy the appropriate booties for the spats, but I haven't yet found any pair that i actually liked.. the open-toed pair isn't half bad for it either..


As for the harness, i'm definitely not the first one to do it either, but since I had some extra chains lying about (from a broken necklace), I decided to do it anyway. Real fun and is not THAT time-consuming.:) I will be initiating personally-designed DIYs, but i'm still waiting for some stuff, so hope you can bear with me:)

What have you DIYed lately? Thanks again and much love to all, xxoo

  1. I usually DIY a lot of jewelry - the inexpensive kind that you can screw around with and ruin occasionally if need be!

  4. OOoooh AND your tigh-high boots'open-toe cleavage Truly sounds as a "SM CHIC-issime Fetish Delight", especially with such a matching polish like yours . . . It (delightfully) reminds me on a "Discreet unveiling BUT with a Strong content of SEXYness" !!!!
