When it comes to January, there's the temptation of bargains calling your name from the sales racks and new lines enticing you towards that coveted spring/summer wardrobe. And if you're on a student budget like me, you'll know it's not exactly easy to resist.
I'm stilling lusting after a hundred and one items for my wardrobe but with approximately £18 in my bank account, what is a girl to do?
So, I decided to be smart. I thought I'd have a go at vamping up a few items that I already own.
One of my favourite shirts was first up. I bought a pack of gold coloured card corners from eBay for a couple of pounds and stuck them on to the collar of this silk Topshop blouse and I have to say I'm so pleased with the result.
I then customised an old pair of Topshop black skinny jeans by laying my favourite Levi denim shorts on top and cutting the jeans into the same shape. I frayed the bottom with a cheese grater (random, but it does the trick exceptionally well) and stuck a embroidered ribbon through the belt loops. A brand new pair of shorts!
