I'm a sucker for great and easy DIYs. Time doesn't permit me to do personal fun stuff but I will always love simple transformations that come out chic on the other side. 

I've had this sweater for a while now and I got bored with it. I was gonna relegate it to movie wardrobe but I had a light bulb moment! I kid. But yeah embellished pieces are a thing for me as well. 

I was inspired by this studded SJP purse from DOT.

So basically what I did was gather all the earrings which were missing a sister or brother, old buttons cut out of clothes I didn't want anymore, faux pearl necklaces that cut at painful moments. Just everything that wasn't quite useful on their own. Got my sweater, needle, thread, scissors and off to work I went. 

You may want to mark different points on your garment if you like certain ornaments to be strategically placed. In my case I just went with the flow. I freestyles it and voila!

Wore it over the holiday. Stylish cover up for the harmattan season.

It's not too late to say Happy new year right???
