DIY or DIE

Last weekend I did my first studding and spiking! With the help of my fellow NYC Fashion Bloggers, the hospitality of my Girl Crush: Candy, and the spponsorship of StudsandSpikes.com we had a great little party full of metal!

After being inspired from various other bloggers and my DIY Inspirations post, I decided to stud the knee caps of a pair of black jeans. They came out rather well in my opinion!

I started out pressing down the backs of my studs with my PetCo card, but then realized a flat head screw driver was much more effective.

It was such a great time, though my fingers and thumbs ended up quite sore after about 4 hours of studding. My friends made some amazing pieces too! And I’m sure you’ll be seeing more of these jeans in the future; I’m so happy with how they came out! ❀
