Claes Iversen Inspired My Suit Upcycle

I was in need of texture and volume for a photoshoot I was asked to style. I was scrolling through Pinterest when I came across some images from a 2018 couture show with designs by Claes Iversen and I was immediately intrigued by these pieces. I had found the inspiration that I needed to help me create.

I immediately started to look through the clothing I had in the fashion closet. Keeping an eye for pieces that I could upcycle into a special piece inspired by this couture show. I remembered that I had a Juicy Couture suit that was the size I needed and it fit the moodboard. I then found an older white dress which had some tulle at the bottom of it. I removed the tulle and attached it to the suit.

Princess worthy Steve Madden upcycle

My latest upcycle takes a thrifted Steve Madden pair of gold heels and simply made them princess worthy. For a Jasmine themed editorial. I just used pieces of jewelry like earrings and a glue gun.

Steve Madden heels before

I removed any clips and earring posts and applied the hot glue to the back of the jewelry and put it in place where I thought they looked best on the heel.

Here is the finished product. What ya think? I’ll be sharing pics from editorial soon.


Shoe upcycle with

I am extremely excited to show you the collaboration that I have been working on with

I had a couple of pairs of shoes that could use a second life. So, I knew it was time for an upcycle. It’s also been a long time since my last upcycle. So I took the rubber stamp, some ink and went to town.

I stamped the entire boot and then moved onto the shoes. I created my very own unique print. I am so happy how they turned out. How do you think I did?

Disclaimer: I tried several inks but I did have to wait 24hrs for ink to dry and then I sprayed a clear coat over then.

Ad: I did receive the stamp at no cost for my post.

Rhinestone Athletic Socks

When a client reached out and asked me if I would recreate a pair of socks. I debated for a bit but had to give it a try because they looked Extra AF. I wanted to give my own spin as to not copy but my client was adamant about hers looking as almost the same.

Here is my before and after.

My version

Rhinestone strands are hand stitched at rim of the tube socks. There are about 33 strands on each sock.

After I shipped these socks off. I couldn’t get them out of my head so I went on and made another pair for a photo shoot I recently styled. A little bit different but still as sparkly.

Pillow Challenge SB Style

With the extra time i’ve had on my hands recently I found the need to pass my time by joining in on the #PillowChallenge I’ve seen across Instagram pages like Harper’s Bazaar Thailand and ANTM winner Jaslene Gonzalez.

Here is my take on the Pillow Challenge with little dash of me and a sprinkle of #ExtraAf with a pillow, tulle and heels to complete my look titled ” Quarantine Ball #StyledxSB. Believe that this was my top choice from the 2 looks I created.

How do you think I did? Leave your feedback in the comments or on IG. Tag me in your social media pics of your “Quarantine Ball” lewks use the #QBStyledxSB so I can repost my favorites.
