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 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.
I was super excited to shoot my friend and AMAZING blogger Justin of Scout Sixteen
. His guy style is always on point, and when I asked him to sport one of his own DIYs, he modeled this edgy yet easy chain T. Get the look by sewing on a few pieces of chain horizontally to your shirt leaving a little slack. I love the unisex look, and must admit, I am making one for myself to layer under a leather jacket!
