If you’re anything like me, immediately when you see a cool accessory or clothing item on celebs or on a fashionista, the first thing that pops in your mind is how can I make this??
Often, the off-the-shelf the version is out of reach in terms of price point, or not exactly how you’d like it to be.
So what better than to make it! Fortunately, with the rise of fashion DIY blogs out there, it’S easy to find one that will help you complete your project.

If you’ve been overdosing on fashion DIY blogs, then I’m sure you’ve already heard of this one. A Beautiful Mess, owned and operated by Elsie Larson and Emma Chapman, sisters in blood and business. It’s a women’s lifestyle blog that focuses on creating a homemade lifestyle. They share home decor projects, recipes, and DIY fashion crafts.

Where to Get the Trims?
As Elsie and Emma said it on their blog “Cheers to doin’-it-yourself, always learning, trying, failing, dreaming big, enjoying the small stuff, and above all else…embracing imperfection. Life is better when it’s a little bit messy.”
But now that you’ve got the “How to” from the fashion DIY blogs, what about the “Where from?”
In every fashion hub, there are a few places to snag your needs from…but for many of us, that’s not the case. There is hope. Sites like Josy Rose make it really easy for you to get all your DIY needs all in one place.
