DIY'ing!...Studding Jcrew Yellow Blouse

I'm starting to realize that nothing in my closet is safe from being studded. I've had this yellow blouse for a while- and it became my next victim! 

How to:
1. Get your supplies together; all you'll need are the studs and pliers
2. Sometimes I lay out the studs in the design I want, so I'm not studding blindly (not pictured)
3. Poke stud all the way through the fabric
4. Use pliers to push down each prong of the stud, make sure it's securely pushed down so it doesn't slip out
5. Repeat until you've completed your design!

...Also...I studded the denim jacket below a couple months ago...

... buuut I wasn't totally satisfied with the end result (maybe because I ran out of studs, ha). I think it's just going to be a work in progress. I'll just keep adding random studs/spikes until it's super crazy and hopefully it turns out something like my inspiration below...

...quite a task- but I'm up for the challenge!!
Would love any suggestions that you guys might have too :)


  1. Oh, I love it! I'll definitely try this :)

  3. I love studding things! That shirt looks so badass now.


  4. Ah I LOVE this DIY!! That J.Crew top is such a stunning colour, love the final look with the studded collar. I really need to stud a bunch of tops this Summer! Thx for sharing :)

  5. Studding is such a fun and simple way to update a look. That yellow shirt looks amazing with the studded collar.
