Making Things Useful

It was one random evening when I decided to DIY an accessory. Probably out of boredom, I decided to sew (Yes SEW!) my old gold and silver chain headbands (that I only wore once) to a seldomly used black beaded necklace. And the result:

Funky chain necklace!
 An instant gorgoeous necklace!

Isn't it amazing to make old things useful again? Well, this is my very first Do-It-Yourself necklace and it gives that nice feeling of owning something new without spending a single penny. 

and oh, another thing. Since this post is about making things useful, I recycled one of my (well, my aunt's, actually) ties and turn it into a bracelet! 

The multipurpose tie: From Necklace to Bracelet
I have worn this tie as a necklace (see related post here) and  why not try it as a bracelet? The tie indeed added attitude to my outfit. Do you agree?

Speaking of outfits, this is what I paired to my DYI-ed necklace and my multi-purpose tie.

The whole outfit: Funky Girly
Shoes: My super favorite gladiator-inspired wedge from SO FAB!
I originally wanted to top my outfit with a gray checkered polo to give the Print on Print Style

Top: Random // Skirt: Thrifted // Polo: Thrifted

Deciding how to wear the outfit.
And here I go again with knotting the edge of the skirt. I love how my look transformed from girly to sexy. ;)

So, Knot or Not? With Polo or without? :)

Anyways, Dont forget to check my look on Lookbook

Much Love, TBD
