Okay, I’m one of those women that like DIY – in theory. I feed myself the fantasy that after seeing something I like, I’ll be so inspired to re-create it myself.


Let me tell you, there are very few DIY’s that I have actually COMPLETED. Not for lack of trying but I tend to get tired of things rather quickly. If I don’t have the materials right on hand, then you can rest assured that the idea is going straight into my never gonna happen file.

But for 2012 I have decided to embrace my creative side that actually likes to make things. So, I’ve done a few projects here and there but I am finally ready to commit to an idea that’s going to require me to get materials and then find the time to make it.

First, let me say that I love Rodarte. If you doubt me, look herehere, here, oh yea and here. I’ve been swooning after them since ’07. So, after seeing these star clips from their Fall ’12 show, I became inspired but it went into that never gonna happen file. That is until I saw Refinery29’s DIY video and decided to challenge myself to complete this project.


So, I’ve given myself a two week deadline to make this and add it to my headwear collection. And because I’m going to show you guys the result I feel a commitment to make sure that’s it’s done on time. Wish me luck guys! Hopefully, I’ll create something similar to this:
