DIY paradise

As you can see I'm totally in love with my new bag ,  the one I made . I'm slowly entering the DIY territory and I feel enthousiastic about it . The internet is filled with great affordable and easy to make ideas and my wardrobe collection needs accessories . I feel like I have covered the basic clothes chapter and I'm moving to the next step which is infusing personal style through accessories . And I can't think of something more personal than make things myself  that no one in the whole world has . How do you feel about DIY projects ? Have you ever tried to make accessories yourself ? How that felt ? Do you love accessorissing ? Do you also feel that many times accessories make or break an outfit?

shirt & trousers : chinese market

  1. I love your look, and your hand-crafted bag.Can't wait to see what you do next! xoxoxo- Patti

  2. I am insanely envious of women who can do DIY things. I'm just not handy that way, or maybe I just don't have the patience to learn. (I used to make my own strings of beads, and a few of them were actually wearable! But I've stopped). To make a bag must be truly wonderful. You look great with it! (And I adore the color of your cardigan, too).

  3. angie you know i LOVE DIY and your new bag is just amazing perfection!!! looks just great with that scarf tied on, too!

    it's so exciting to see you making your own things - it certainly guarantees you won't see yourself 'coming and going' as they say. and with all the info out on the web i find i'm much more confident about taking on projects using new techniques and materials.

    can't wait to see what you get up to next!! (and that bag in black 'suede' would be glorious!) have a great day, steph

  4. Angie, this is just sooooo YOU! I can't wait to see your DIYs...personally, I love DIY as long as it doesn't look too crafty. Your bag looks first class and now I'm going to have to find an old leather jacket to use for scrap! Hugs! ~Serene

  5. I meant to comment on your previous post because that is an enviable bag. Seriously, DIY anything scares me, so I give props to you, my friend.

  6. I love your blue sweater so much better and your scarf on the purse...the whole look is great! I have a heart to be a DIYer, but I never do it very successfully!!

  7. I like DIYs and have been thinking lately that that is something I enjoyed in the beginning of my blog. Don't think I've done a DIY in several months.
