November: Project Re-Design

Another month has approached us and another project re-design has come your way. Besides being able to take photos, express my love for style, blogging has also given me the opportunity to connect with bloggers not only in New York City but in other countries as well.

Till now I’ve always done my project re-design collaborations with bloggers who are based in NY. However, this time I wanted to reach out to a blogger who I follow on day to day basis who is from another country. That happened to be Miri from CurrentlyWearing. I seriously love Miri’s blog. She has posts from day to day OOTDs, lifestyle, trips, her beautiful daughter and family, DIY projects etc. I regularly saw from time to time that Miri did numerous DIY projects so I thought that she would be the perfect person to approach regarding this collaboration.

Miri found this impeccable basic black bag with a gold handle that her and I can work on. As some of you might know. This project is about purchasing the same item and designing it based on our own personal style. Miri decided to sparkle it up and add very chic yet elegant crystals around the  the bag. I love how the hint of light purple on the crystals stands out.

I on the other hand decided to do something a little different. I saw these 5 drapes that came in one pack and thought that they would be perfect for this project. While thinking about how to hang them on the bag I decided to use a small amount of tape and tape it through the inside. Now, this can work several different ways. You can glue them through the inside, tape them or even sew them. After that I decided to add this string that states “Classy and Caffeinated.” Coffee and style is what we need right?
