DIY Fashion

                                                                Quick fix to Fashion



So despite the showers that have been pouring for the last two days we are slowly approaching summer, and what better excuse to go shopping. But I have news, what if I was to say you could look good but spend less and still have money clinging in your pockets for a trip to Nando’s on the way home. Gone are the days for spending money like it grows on trees trust me I’ve been there and done that and it’s only left me penniless.

I used to go shopping and not rest until I had no money in my account I would enter the store and leave knowing exactly what I would purchase on my next visit. But as the saying goes New Year new me, I know we’re already halfway through the year, but its better late than never. So here I am with a new approach and I say save, save, save. So join on me on this journey to find the best ways to create a unique outfit and cute accessories to go along with it. Fasten your seat belts, run wild with creativity and let the fun begin.

Instead of splurging on a pair of the American flag denim shorts this summer, I’ll be making my very own. After watching a YouTube video tutorial I am proud to say that I’m certified to go ahead and create a pair of jeans. Now that’s what I’m talking about. Let your mind run free and you’ll be surprised at what ideas will come flooding. Now I’ve got another idea, I’ve got an old plain white t-shirt that’s just holding up space in my wardrobe so why not put it to use. So I’ll be recreating it and adding funky jewellery accessories, any earrings that I have lost along the years would be added to the mix. And the best thing about it is that I’ll be the only one wearing my design and it can’t be found in stores. How unique.

It’s all about investing in the future for me right now. With all this saving I’m doing I just had a vision of the future and it seems bright. I guess I will definitely keep saving. So this summer, just think DIY and you’ll be set to go forward in your future. Let me know how you get along with your designs. If you have any other creative ideas then write a comment below and keep us posted.

This month we’re having a competition we want to see what new designs you could think of. The winner gets to exhibit their design at the Caramel Rock Fashion show at Westfield. If you want to be the winner of the Quick fix to fashion competition then why not create a new design and send  in your image to info@caramelrock.com.

We’re looking forward to seeing them :)
