Did you think I’d let another week go by without a DIY- I’m trying not to! I may not post one every single week…but would you believe me if I told you I have a basket filled to the brim just waiting for me to transform what’s in it? Yes, it’s true.
Oh well, one thing at a time. Today, I’m gonna show you what used to be pants- and how they became a top! Because they were mid-calf, I decided to give some length by adding some black lace. Then I cut the crotch part and turned that into the neckline. Sewed up all hems and flipped my garment bottom- up- and there it was: A brand new top!!
Check out my fun reel.
Next, This week I joined a challenge for ‘trends in your closet’ on Instagram. This one encourages you to shop what you own and find something that’s trending right now. There’s a list. So, I basically ticked off a few boxes with 70’s leather, a vest, and texture! Here’s one look:
I also got to style up a fantastic Joseph Ribkoff top for 1ere Avenue. I’m super crazy about this peacock color!! And- the fit is soo good. It’s part of their Fall collection, but honestly, this one can be worn all year-round (well at least here in Montreal it can!)
Besides that, still trying to finish up reading Jean-Claude Poitras’ book (Montreal designer 60’s-90’s). Note: It’s in French. Looking forward to posting a review if I can ever find time to finish it!!
And, if you’re into horoscope fashion, this week I wrote a post on Libra Fashion! You can read that here:

And now onto my Favourite Fashionista Diva from last week’s Linkup Party is…Andrea from Living on Cloud Nine9 for her exquisite look! How gorgeous is this jumpsuit?!!
