      Thanks Julie, I am!

      Ooh, I love the pattern mixing in those photos. Those bows do look very DIY-able.

    I changed my mind! I would love to see a DIY version of this awesome belt from Rochas.

    Can’t believe I almost missed this giveaway! I’m already signed up for NYdesign shops newsletter and I follow them on twitter as @Lilygreig (How i saw about this contest)
    A DIY I’ve been wanting to try lately is to recreate these $5k valentino shoes.
    Totally seems doable! I can’t spare 5k, but I do love the romantic look of these heels.
    I’ve also reaaaally wanted to stud some ankle boots. So many shoe projects and not enough time!

    My current fashion obsession is Katy perry, and I’m madly in love with the zac posen dress she just wore to the grammys. Now, of course a full-length gown is a lot for a DIY project, but the look of the metallic flowers on a nude backdrop is just striking.
