MY DIY | Rhinestone Waist Dress


Now that my apartment is fully festive, I decided to decorate my LBD for the holiday season. With a strip of iron-on rhinestones, I created a bedazzled belt on my drop waist dress. I grabbed my trusty Rowenta travel iron, and transformed a basic black dress in no time.

Hot Fix Rhinestone Transfer
How to:
Peel off the paper backing
Lay the strip of gems on your waistline
On medium heat, run the iron across the clear backing
Peal off the backing and let cool

    TOO easy. I really like this one! Usually I can’t get on board with the whole rhinestone thing, but I like them in patterns such as this.

    Oh my god, that looked perfectly awesome!!! I love that idea of putting those rhinestones on your dress and giving it a look of having a separate skirt. It totally gives a different look on that plain and simple dress. I love it!
