you're my toybox.




i bought this little side zip purse from h&m last week with full intention of a diy.
i really loved the effect of the alexander wang studded bottom bag 
but wanted to do something a little more.... extreme.

12 solid horns later.

h&m trend purse turned full metal diy

That purse is very "Lady GaGa".

lol at roddy! yay shark week!

great clutch. i prefer metal horns to spikes as they look menacing but don't actually hurt when you accidently smack yourself or someone else in them... but then again, i realize that this problem might only pertain to me because i'm quite clumsy.

fantastic! this is so well done that I thought you had purchased it that way, as the original design. it wasn't until I read the post that I realized you embellished it yourself. very fierce!

Ha, cool. If the studs were sharp that maybe isn't your first choice to wear with delicate fabrics. Mm, it looks like it eats people. I want one!

Besides that, actually I'm trying to remeber to note people that I just started a blog and I have added you to my stalking wictims list.
