DIY Fashionista Brooches

Recreate the look with Midge's Fashionista Brooches tutorial:

How would you describe your style?

Quirky and retro and lotes of cat eye glasses, and very thrifty. Second hand chic.

What's your favourite piece in your wardrobe?

A silk dress that has a pattern of different cute dogs on it. From far away it looks like flowers, but once you get up close to it you notice adorable portraits of boston terriers and chiwawas.

Who are your style icons?

Enid Coleslaw from Ghost World, Audrey Horne from Twin Peaks. Lots of fictional characters. Carrie Brownstein, too, who is a real person. 

Do you have any favourite designers?

Betsey Johnson!

Where are your favourite places to shop for new clothes clothes?

Thrift stores, with out a doubt. You can find ANYTHING in those places.

Do you make or customise your outfits?

I don't make any of my clothes, but I do love to customize them with different pins and brooches. Things that are easy to add on.

Do you have any great tips for mixing up and personalising an outfit?  

Mix and experiment with different colors and patterns, you'll be surprised what kind of un expected combinations you come up with and swoon over!
