Thrifty and Crafty

A couple of weeks ago I posted about a denim jacket that I'd been lusting over in TopShop. It had silver studs on the shoulders and the grand price tag of £60. Now, I had two choices, fork over the £60 and suffer from potential buyers remorse or buy a cheap denim jacket on eBay and stud the damn thing myself. No brainer!

All I used was a second hand Warehouse denim jacket (£4), a marker pen, a ruler, a handful of conical studs (£5 for 250) and something sharp enough to poke holes through the denim. The kitten is for display purposes only and is not necessary for the process. It may impede progress though....

Well, it took me around 40 minutes to do one side but I think it looks ok. It's not quite the same but for the vast price difference I'll definitely cope! I'll try and incorporate it into an outfit post once I get chance to do the second side. What do you reckon? Decent approximation of the more expensive version, or grotesque Judas Priest dress-up item?


  1. That is so so cool! I think you could sell these online and make a hefty profit! ;)

    1. That is not a bad idea at all, honey! I may have to explore that possibility :) xxx
