Rhinestone Cowboy

I haven't been much for the stud thing with the DIYs, and this is mostly out of laziness. So you can imagine my delight when I saw cocorosa's genius use of safety pins on a blazer. Then I thought this might be the DIY for me...

love love that DIY. great way to revamp a denim skirt. i tend to associate denim skirts with horrible junior high "mean girls", so i am lovin the safety pins!

and to answer your Q: i'm an amateur writer. i'm currently an english major with an emphasis in writing. hopefully it will take me somewhere, if not it's law school for me.
