when I was writing a previous post,
I got inspired by McQueen's Spring 2009's sparkly skin look
you will need:
a lazy saturday with a couple of free hours
a cat to tell you how youre doin'
any tulle that matches your skin color
(finer tulle, unlike the one I used, will blend into your skin better)
M&J Trim (in NYC's garment district) has a large swarovski collection..
(not cheap - however, I prefer it because it has a lot more sparkle)
smaller sizes may look nicer on the skin
I just used whatever I had in my drawers..
needle, thread, scissors and crystals
tip: an embroidery ring is handy
if you know how to sew - a simple tank pattern will do
(with an unfinished raw edge)
if not - you can buy a sheer top, or frankly, any top
sew crystals on (individually - if your top is sheer) as you like
tip: try it on about halfway to consider the placement of your crystals
layer any V-neck item, or a border necklace on top
work it casually for a splash of fun, or dress it up for a night out
