I’m not a crafty girl, I am a clever girl.  I know I have expensive taste, and sometimes can’t have what I want.  C’est la vie, right?  But once in a while, I know I can create an item on my own without the giant price tag.

etoile Isabel Marant stud tee ~ $360

When I saw this tee in person I thought I can do this.  While the quality won’t be the same the look will be.  I like DIY projects but sometimes I feel like they can come off looking elementary.  This is one piece I thought I could actually pull off!

The players…

Get the pliers out and put a movie on.  This project takes awhile, but I think you will be happy with the finished product…

Not too shabby!  What do you think, will you be trying out this project?

Here’s how I styled it…

Wearing in Wonderland ~ Tee made by moi, American Apparel skirt, Helmut Lang vest with leather cap sleeves, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag, Elizabeth and James ‘Peri’ booties, Jules Smith bracelets, House of Harlow ring
