DIY studded collar

I was afraid I was tiring you all with my endless outfit posts! So, here is my take on the DIY studded collar tutorial. Some of you have probably seen tutorials like this before, but since I received a lot of studs in the mail yesterday, I thought I might as well share my experience with you guys <3 :)

  1. great tutorial!!
    i've seen studded collars on a ton of different sites now and i really want to make my own studded shirt!

    a few questions though: where can you get cheap studs? what happens when you wash the shirt (or whatever you studded)?

    thanks for your help!
    also, thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment :)

    you have a great blog. i'm definitely following now!


    1. thank you so much, dear :) yeah! you should definitely try it out.
      i got my studs on Taobao, which is the chinese equivalent of Ebay, so of course they were cheap. (I know this isn't much help, sorry :( mine were around 2$ for almost 200 studs) but you can always visit studsandspikes.com, which sells studs at a variety of prices. i would suggest hand-washing your studded clothes, but it's fine if you machine wash them as well. the better quality studs you have, the less likely they will stain in time. because my studs have really bendy prongs though, i can take them out if i try! so if they tarnish, i'll just replace them.

    2. Hi
      I would like to ask what is studs in chinese? I am not fluent in mandarin and I'm dying to buy them off taobao. I've tried google translate but I did not find the studs used in clothes.

  2. I really wanna try to make my own DIY studded collar too, but IDK where I can buy studs here in the Philippines :(

  8. Great tute, so quick and easy! Studs make everything look instantly edgier.
    As for the Lovestruck perfume - I am rubbish at describing notes etc but I do know that this one is floral. I find the top notes quite sweet, but fades after a while. It's definitely a younger and more playful fragrance. Hope I helped, somewhat!
