To add onto my fun filled Sunday, following a delicious brunch we "dropped by & d.i.y.'d" @ Studio 85. It was my first time at Studio 85 & from the outside it may look like a normal shop, but once you step foot inside you're transported to a crafty & creative space with countless possibilities! For this d.i.y. we were creating unique detachable collars from vintage blouses & studding, pearl-ing, & sequin-ing them up :) I forgot to mention that there were also red velvet cupcakes there [yumm] which was the perfect dessert for my brunch!
Striped-T:AMERICAN APPAREL, Denim Button Up:VS, Skirt:FOREVER 21, 
Bracelets: All THRIFTED [except for chain&yarn one:CHARLOTTE RUSSE]
It was easy to be creative because they provided us with so much fun inspiration

Emily also attended & made this studded collar, you can see more pics here at her blog!
I was so excited to get home & find these 2 adorable pieces of artwork
[made by Kiah Leigh] in my goodie bag :)

The suspense is going to have to continue to build since I'm not completely done with my collar & I don't want to unveil it til it's completely done! My shirt also came with a "bonus" collar that connected between the side collars, so I'm in the process of turning it into a necklace :) I want to send out another HUGE Thank You to Studio 85 & Kiah!! I had a lot of fun & I'm looking forward to more collaborations in the future. Can't wait to show all of you my finished projects .. stay tuned :)
