DIY: Flower Pin Brooch

by Be-Blogger U.K. on: November 1st, 2011

Fashion DIY (Do It Yourself), is a popular hobby and blog project amongst fashion bloggers like myself, inspiration taken from catwalks to magazines those of the items we cannot afford nor available to buy, DIY is a simplest and affordable solution to create your own design signature with the help of scraps – old accessory, old clothing and even household materials.  Other traditional materials like sequins, feathers, beads can be purchased from specialised department stores (i.e John Lewis) or haberdashery shops.

Today I’m showing you a very simple DIY flower brooch, using a flower motif broken up from a piece of cheap jewellery, believe me any pieces of jewellery (necklace, bracelet, earrings) from high street stores is a haberdashery paradise for DIY-ers.

You will need layers of old newspaper, UHU glue or multi purpose glue, a brooch pin, flower motif broken up from old necklace.

Apply tiny amount of glue and spread thinly onto the brooch pin and stick firmly on (center) flat surface of back flower motif.

Lay the flower motif brooch face down on newspaper, let the glue dry for overnight.

Once the glue dried and thoroughly set, pin the DIY-ed brooch onto your desired shirt, tops or dresses. Ohhhh la la.

 Benetton Knitted Clutch

by Be-Blogger U.K. on: September 29th, 2011

I would like to say a massive thanks to Benetton for sending me this lovely bright orange knitted clutch, received just in time before the commence of London Fashion Week, it was a perfect accessory to accommodate my loaned tablet and storing invitations.  I think this will make a good travel pillow for my up and coming trip to Asia.

Thanks Jen of The Style Crusader for the photos.

 Saved By The Brolly

Today’s weather forecast was cloudy and heavy showers.  Normally I don’t follow the weatherman’s advise as you all know the British weather can be temperate and unpredictable, well today I left my house to pop into town without my trusty cyan blue parasol which I always carry during the wet Winter season.  The unexpected downpour, much to my annoyance it rained heavily during the course of the day (and it must have stopped several times), the sound of the beating drums scared the daylights out of me, I was pretty much drenched and hiding under a soaked free newspaper wasn’t a lovely sight.  Luckily at the right time and location I popped by at the Benetton showroom to pick up some press samples and was given a lovely blue and logo print umbrella to save me from further soak.
