DIYed

On Sunday, Jess and I spent a few hours at the Urban Outfitters in Soho for the DIY or DIE event. It was great to see some of our favorite blogging ladies in the flesh and learn a thing or two about sewing, studding, shredding, slashing, and crocheting chains. I had a lot to learn seeing as I do not work in the fashion industry but thankfully the ladies of Six Six Sick, Nikki, Pam, Jeralyn, and Sarah made it seem super easy and I'm confident I can do a lot of this stuff on my own now!

A big thanks goes to UO for hosting such a cool event and for the complimentary rad gift bags that included among other things some yummy sparkling juice by Izze, UO nail polish (I got green!) and a sweet xeroxed how-to guide for the next rainy day. I only managed to get a few decent shots but you can see more coverage of the event over at Badlooking and Dirty Flaws.
