Kim Kardashian Cut Up Her Dior Dress? Here Are DIY Bloggers You SHOULD Take Note Of

Kim Kardashian Cuts Up Dior Dress: The Best DIY Bloggers

[Kim Kardashian Instagram]

Despite knowing plenty about Kim Kardashian’s rather genius employment of a jean tailor to have on board for her every skinny denim whim, we weren’t expecting KK to turn createur and start DIYing her own wardrobe. Less make-do-and-mend and more too-much-too-soon, Kimmy decided that her pink lace Dior dress wasn’t cutting it, so she cut it. In two, that is.

Following her now signature crop-top and pencil-skirt outfit construction – one that perfectly outlines her killer new bod – she reminded us that it IS a good idea to get thrifty with one’s wardrobe but that certain skills and guidelines need to be in place. We’re not all going to be Coco Chanels overnight, but a string of DIY-savvy bloggers can give you some handy tips, hints and inspo as to how to get started. And some alterations don’t even require a sewing machine. Double yay.

Hong Kong-based sustainable fashion lover Geneva Vanderzeil of [a href="http://apairandasparediy.com/">apairandasparediy.com[/a] crafts all sorts from floral wall hangings to DIY’d jewel earrings.

Geri Hirsch of Because I'm Addicted

Geri Hirsch of [a href="http://becauseimaddicted.net/">BecauseI’mAddicted.net [/a]not only has a great blog in general, but her DIY section is heaving with cute ideas that only need a bit of patience and (thankfully) not an intense skill-set. Her camo Converse and embellished sunglasses are DIY accessorising at it’s best.

Erica Domesk of P.S. I Made This

[a href="http://psimadethis.com/about">PSIMadeThis.com[/a] could perhaps be touted as the frontrunner to a flurry of DIY blogs. Originally set up by American Erica Domesk in 2009 this site is now a fully-fledged lifestyle brand. DIY is of the highest calibre and highly influenced by the catwalk – take the Oscar de la Renta-inspired jewel pants or iridescent sneakers as good examples.
