Repurpose Old Hoop Earrings

DIY, Fashion

I had a pile of single hoop earrings sitting in a ziploc bag collecting dust on a shelf because tbh I figured that one day the one earring trend would catch back on or that I would repurpose them into something fabulous. What are we supposed to do when we lose or break one hoop?? Like everyone I googled it and I found some helpful tips but nothing that seemed to give me the feels.

After some serious deliberation and a few cups of cafe I figured out what to do. I took these long lost hoops and created an #ExtraAf accessory that can be used as a necklace or belt.


Where would you wear this to? Should I add this to my poshmark closet? I’d love to hear your feedback!

Repurposed Jacket D.I.Y

DIY, Fashion
Repurposed Military Jacket

One fuzzy sweater and one military jacket turned into one fabulous repurposed jacket that is sure to make a statement.

White Fuzzy Sweater
Military Style Jacket

I removed the sleeves on both items at the shoulder seam, removed all buttons and the belt off the military jacket. Then sewed the fuzzy sweater sleeves to the military jacket at the seams and then put on new gold buttons. Finally Replaced the original belt with a gold belt.

I gave my jacket some street vibes by adding some cities id love to visit and on the back I tagged my city.

Will be adding this jacket to my Poshmark Closet!

D.I.Y Motorsport Boots

DIY, Fashion

I turned a plain black boot into a motorsport style boot for a photoshoot last week. Here is a quick D.I.Y for anyone looking for a similar look for any halloween shoes.

I took an old pair of satin Isaac Mizrahi boots added a dash of extraness.

This D.I.Y basically is 3 steps

  1. Measure and cut the reflective tape
  2. Remove backing and place where you would like.
  3. Repeat on next shoe


(2) two- strips of high resolution reflective tape


Old boots

*side note the E600 was used to help keep the edges secure.
