With the madness of Fashion Week and Storm Nemo, somehow a day disappeared last week, so we have one more #GUYDIY
for you. I could not be happier to start the week and cap off the series with the super talented Gregory Littley
. A social media pro and constant doodler, his #SocialScribbles
characters caught my eye on instagram, so I gave him a silver sharpie
and some leather goods and he made his mark! For those sketch-challanged (me included) I love the idea of using these sharpies to write a little message inside your man’s wallet or cap, to wish them a happy Valentine’s Day.
And for that guy who is not afraid of a little wrist action, with a trip to the trimmings store, I whipped up a bunch of bracelets in no time using guy friendly colors and leathers. Stayed tuned for the step-by-step!
I ran into my uber fantastic friend Jake
, and instantly spotted and oogled his amazing capped toed shoes. Imagine my delight when I realized they were a DIY project. I made something similar a while back HERE
for myself, and think it is the perfect way to add a little luxe to a pair of oxfords. Jake turned shoes that he’s only worn a couple of times, into his go-to pair. DIY For the Win!
I have to admit, this studly skinny tie is one of my favorite #GUYDIYs. Modeled by my forever friend, John (and partially inspired by J. Timberlake’s latest single) colorblocking gives something a little extra to a Suit & Tie ensemble. I stuck to a subdue silver, but take the plunge with a bright blue or neon to create a statement look.
White Acrylic paint
Silver Fabric paint
First, place a piece of tape horizontally a few inches up from the tip of the tie.
Paint the area below the tape with white paint, let dry.
Next, paint your color on top of the white, you may need a couple of coats. Let dry.
Lastly, peal off the tape.
