Free People has always been one of my husband’s favorite brands. I love it in the summer, it’s easy breezy look and feel, but in the fall I’ve always gravitated toward a more structured look. Until now.
Plaid has been near and dear to my hear ever since my first plaid of plaid skinny pants I loved to death (or at least, until knee holes) in high school. The Free People August Lookbook is dripping with gorgeous plaids and mixed prints that make me pine for the turn to autumn.

Also, something about the Desperately Seeking Susan vibe of this model’s look makes me rather nostalgic and wanting to hit the video store… do they still have those?

Spotted this amazing DIY on HonestlyWTF today – Studded Sneakers! So cute and tough.
Great summer shoes! I’ve always been such a fan of Vans, and this is a sweet update.

You’ll need:
a pair of sneakers
150 – 200 brass cone spikes
E6000 adhesive
a disposable container or popsicle stick
a toothpick

Start by squeezing a small amount of E6000 into a disposable container or onto a wooden popsicle stick. Dispensing a small amount at a time prevents the glue from drying too quickly. Using the tip of a toothpick, apply a small dollop of glue onto the back of a spike.

Press the spike into the sneaker, holding it in place for a few seconds.

Continue adding spikes along the shoe’s baseline and working upwards in horizontal lines.

Arrange the spikes, without glue, into awkward spaces before attaching them.
Glue spikes onto the heel cap, again working horizontally.

Allow the shoes to dry overnight before wearing them!
