DIY Bistro Curtain Top &  Bohemian Bell Bottoms

Recreate the look with Sherri's bistro curtain top and bohemian bell bottoms tutorials:





How would you describe your style?

Quirky & eclectic best characterize my style and my wardrobe is filled with unique eco-refashions, handmade accessories & fabulous thrifted gear!

What's your favourite piece in your wardrobe?

My collection of refashioned vintage cocktail dresses...I just wish I had more occasions to wear them!

Who are your style icons?

Lisa Bonet, Cyndi Lauper & 1980's Molly Ringwald

Do you have any favourite designers?

Betsey Johnson, Vivienne Westwood, sustainable fashion designer Liore Lassalle, DIY fashionista Geneva Vanderzeil, Courtney & Kelsey Montague (the eco-fashion curators behind Nikita & Vesper)

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

As an eco-fashion refashionista I firmly believe that fabulous, affordable, unique style can be achieved without supporting the growing phenomenon of cheap, unethically produced “fast fashion” and love spending an afternoon browsing the racks of my fave thrift & charity shops for new-to-me items or discovering fabulous second hand clothing online.

Do you make or customise your outfits?

Absolutely! Most of my wardrobe has been refashioned or recreated in some way. 

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

Never be afraid to try something new. Stepping out of your style comfort zone can have a dynamic effect on your self esteem...start small by adding a funky new accessory to a fave outfit and in no time at all you'll be creating your own unique style everyday!
