DIY: Reshaping Heels

These are a few pics from a fantastic DIY on Christeric . Yes, these shoes are adorable. But really, they aren’t why I’m posting this.  This is a level 5 DIY, but for those with the tools and craftiness, it shows how to reshape a heel using Bondo.  That’s a skill I could use! I […]


One of our favorite DIY blogs, OutsaPop, tells us how to shred shirts! It is done all by hand, pulled, but it´s not threads you´re pulling but LOOPS. Jersey is a lightweight knit so it is formed from small loops. If you take one loop from the bottom and pull that, the knit will start […]


DIY Chain Heels

Nixon’s post earlier today reminded me of the DIY chain heels tutorial I saw this morning on OutsaPop, which was originally also inspired by Park & Cube. Full tutorial on Fashion Infusion!


Pattern Magic

This is really just one of those cruel posts about this cool thing I found that you can’t have. I found these photos over on I’m Revolting, from a pair of Japanese books (Pattern Magic Volumes 1 and 2 ). Of course I ran over to Amazon immediately to try and get them, but they […]

DIY leggings

Video from Instructables It’s Saturday morning- what are you going to do with your day? How about learn to make leggings before spring legging season is upon us? Giannyl shows us how easy it is to do, and the simplicity of the style makes it totally adaptable. I’m going to try a couple of plain […]


Last Minute Card Idea

Absolutely adorable (and free!) printable pattern for anatomical heart cards available at Cheeky Magpie.

Blush Response: Eyebrows

After an extended hiatus brought on by Coilhouse production, making art, and personal reasons I can’t mention on public TV I am returned with sweets and flowers. What’s a few months among friends, right? Right? Have some candy and simmer down, toots. One of my ventures has been the re-launch of my own website, Biorequiem.com. […]


Knitting in Biology

This is just one of those things that might not me fashion, but I had to share. “Knitting in Biology”, from CraftyHedgehog on Etsy.



I don’t have much time to dedicate to posting today, as I’m hosting a pumpkin carving party. So, I looked up some Pumpkinspiration and figured I would kill two birds with one stone. I think I just coined a word. Those pumpkins were awfully pretty, but just in case you would prefer a postapocalyptic party […]


DIY: Upcycled T-shirt Scarf

This is my extra-special, extra blurry phone cam DIY special. This cute scarf starts out as two old T-shirts (actually, I ended up using two and a quarter as I had some bits left over from experimenting). When choosing your shirts, go for extra squishy. Note that for your $, big men’s shirts have a […]

Lunatic Fringe

Dolce and Gabbana’s Spring 2010 show has one word for you, and that word is Fringe. Knock it off: In order to avoid looking like an overly Gawthy carwash, might I suggest adding fringe to your wardrobe in small amounts? Perhaps this Long Fringe Soft Scarf (24.99)? Or you could just add a bit of […]

Spastic Elastic

I love, love, love the new trend in elastic. Not because it is flattering, versatile, and makes your old clothes look new again, even though those things are true. But because it is 99 cents a yard at Joannes, and this stuff is so easy it doesn’t even require a sewing machine. My apologies to […]
