In a world of $250 "artfully distressed" denim and shoes that cost more than a month's rent, DIY projects are a tempting (and affordable) alternative. We at Fashionista both understand and fully support this notion. That's why we're thrilled with the number of DIY emails we've received over the last few days, and we're more than happy to share. The style mavens over at Condenasty took a cue from our post on Malene Birger's amazing necklace and got crafty. The formula? A black sash and ball-chains from the hardware store. Brightestyoungthings quenched their Marc craving with a DIY inspired by his metal-studded flats. They use black Capezio ballet slippers as their building block, which earns them points for being cheap and chic. And today, Styledash features a "vintage jeans" tutorial from Threadbanger - apparently, coffee, sandpaper and a cheese grater will do the trick. These are bound to keep us busy (more like 'procrastinating'), but if you've got any brilliant DIYs of your own, feel free to tip us off. --SARAH MUEHLBAUER
