DIY: Don't Try This At Home, Kids

Alright. A bit of a followup on my last post. Unfortunately I didn't win the H&M Fashion Blogger contest, but if you follow me on my twitter you probably noticed I was still lucky enough to go to the Much Music Video Awards. I wasn't covering it for H&M, I just went to watch the show and it was awweeeeesoommmeeeeeee. Which brings me to this post.

I've been working on this DIY project for literally months. You'll notice I'm not including step by step instructions for this project. There's one huge reason why; I had no damn idea what I was doing. Not a clue. I've loved the idea of a suit jumpsuit for a while and I figured I'd just have to make my own. I picked this suit up at Goodwill for $8 and went to town. I honestly wouldn't even know how to explain how I did this, so I won't even try.

(Sorry, excuse the un-pressed hem on the shorts)

As I was making this, I always wondered when and where I could actually wear this. As the MMVAs approached I realize this would be the perfect outfit, so I frantically worked to get this together. With a little help from Kylie (of Nice and Shiny) after my sewing machine broke, I was able to do it!
I'll likely go into more details on my Toronto trip later. I had some great eats, good shopping, and met some really incredible people. I miss you guys already, if any of you are reading this!! I'll definately share some of my purchases and other fun stuff frop my trip in the coming weeks.
