Starry Eyed

My friend came up with the idea of star-studding a pair of black levis after seeing the ones Coal n Terry Vintage are selling here, their site has some amazing pieces (I really want the Stars n Stripes tube top!) and is brilliant for inspiration if you don't have the money and like a little DIY. After buying a pack of 50 star studs for roughly £2 (you can get them here) she got me over to help her. We positioned the studs beforehand to check they looked right and then I studded away. Some of the studs didn't end up in the right place to start off with, but I didn't bend the spikes over until we were completely happy with the way they looked and then used some scissors secure them.
Here's the finished look! I absolutely love them and am gutted they're not mine aha, although my friend has promised that I can borrow them soon and I can't wait :) the best thing is that they cost less than a £10er! Next time I'm in Bristol I think we're going to fray the edges- cheese grater at the ready...
