Adorn_Kit_Shini_Book

This is something I’ve been wishing to share for a long time now, a special project that had Kit (of Style Slicker blog) and I essentially slapping on a piece of duct-tape across our internet ‘mouths’ and work on solidly for the past year or so. Please allow me to present to you, Adorn: 25 Stylish DIY Fashion Projects, a collection of easy-to-follow DIYs by Kit Lee and yours truly, published by Hardie Grant. It all started with two biscuit tins bursting with nick-nacks – studs and chains from the odd DIY projects on our respective blogs, and then an idea that blossomed over brunch. The following ten months with Kit behind the sewing machine, me practising tai-chi over her with the camera; over 30 Litres of tea inhaled, plus buckets of berries from the Dalston market… then chocolate-chip cookies as the weather grew colder. It was a big undertaking, one that thankfully concluded in a product that we’re both very proud of and happy to share with our readers.

The book will be available at all major bookstores and online retailers from early April – a pre-order link will be available soon (through which brownie points and slurpy internet kisses are also received…). See, I told you I’d find a way into your living room somehow, although my initial approach would’ve been through your bedroom window in a black leotard. But I don’t mind this version at all.

  61. What a great surprise! So available from early April? I´ll search it in my bookstore, looks such a interesting book, comgratulations!

  62. I am very excited. I always enjoy your DIY posts, but I have never actually attempted them for myself. Maybe it’s because I’m (adorably) shy – or just plain lazy – about that sort of thing. Now I have no excuse. I LOVE books, I’m constantly reading them – and this one will be no exception. Who knows? Maybe I’ll actually try something instead of just staring at the pretty pictures.
    Thank you. :)

  63. THAT’S AMAZING!
