UPDATE: Check the tutorials here.
Leather has really made a tremendous comeback. Leather is everywhere, varsity jackets, coats, and even pants. But When I saw this leather sleeved crewneck online, the first thought that came to my head is “I got to have it”. I sadly cannot locate the original source of the picture, and therefore cannot find the maker of the lovely thing. I searched the web for similar items and ran into:
Alexander McQueen‘s degradé sleeved cotton sweatshirt.
Givenchy‘s leather sleeve sweater.
Cynthia Rowley‘s leather sleeved pullover
Finally, a slightly different style, Sons of Heroes‘ varsity shirt with leather sleeves.
From top to bottom of the list, if you are a struggling student( like myself), it will be quite pricey. The quality is almost assured to be top quality of course, especially with names such as Alexander McQueen and Givenchy, but never the less it is pricey. So the cheaper alternative will lead to another DIY project, so stay tuned for that in the coming weeks.

Sorry I’ve been out for a long time, but there hasn’t been anything I wanted to do that isn’t already out there. So I decided to post my top inspirational blogs/bloggers.
1. Miss Ivania Carpio of Love Aesthetics. She not only has inspired me, but has slowly changed my perspective on my own style. Her very minimalistic fashion, whether it’s interior or personal, is just so clean.
2. Maria Van Nguyen from Vanillascented has similar style as Love Aesthetics. Need I say more?
3. A Pair & A Spare by Geneva Vanderzeil is one of the first blogs that became part of my online rotation. The way that Geneva challenges herself to come up with weekly DIYs( almost weekly) is truly an amazing thing.
4. Annaleenas Hem is focused on interior design with loads of simple, easy, and stylish DIYs.
So check out the links above and hope you guys get inspired as much as they have inspired me.
