a little something I made earlier


Today I've been doing a little d.i.y. styling...

I got this vintage cashmere knit jumper, and then got the pyramid studs from eBay, with this idea in mind.

I've had to two components for ages, but didn't get round to doing it until today.
Although it was a little bit trickier to get the studs in the right place, I would recommend putting these on anything just because they are so cheap, but look great. 
Overall I'm quite pleased with the result. It definitely doesn't look professional, because some of them are a little wonky, but I'm telling myself that it adds to the charm. I would also have liked to add more for a more dramatic effect, but I ran out of studs...

Note: stepping on upside down studs in bare feet is not fun, they will stick right into the soles of your feet and make you bleed quite a bit. Lesson learnt!
