DIY: Neon Stud Clutch

L to R: Solange Knowles with C.C. Skye Clutch, Aldo Shoes, Tylie Malibu Clutch

Last weekend, while on a little shopping spree, I tweeted out a few pics of pieces that tickled my fancy. You guys were really excited about anything neon. I’m obsessed with the bright colored shoes from Aldo and I basically want everything in Nanette Lepore’s Spring collection. Clearly you guys are just as into the brights as I am. So as promised, here’s a little neon clutch DIY tutorial that’s a must for your Spring wardrobe.

Materials: A Clutch, Stud Trim, Glue, Fluorescent Spray Paint

First, use a little E6000 to glue the stud trim directly to the clutch.

Transform your clutch from dull to delicious by adding a little spray paint. Use painters tape to protect the hardware of the bag from being covered in paint.

You shouldn’t need more than two coats. Just be sure to give it plenty of time to dry.

Jumpsuit from BCBGeneration, Leopard wedges from Chinese Laundry

Stylist tip: If the bands of a halter top are long enough, try playing around with different ways of tying your top. Criss cross the bands in the back and tie it under your bust line for a different look.

The Oscars are this weekend so I had to hit the palm tree lined streets of Beverly Hills for this shot. The sun was shinning and I was feeling so Hollywood. Are you excited about the Oscars? For me, the main event is the red carpet. I’m looking forward to seeing who will be wearing what.

    I was just out at Michael’s this weekend looking for pyramid studs. Do you know where you can get them in stores? I know you can get them online but I’m impatient and want to get my hands on these little beauties.
    I LOVE this DIY and am totally trying this out sometime soon.

    This look is amazing!!! I totally have to do this DIY! I read your blog regularly but I am more of a lurker! LOL This project was so great I had to comment! Also I know alot of DIY bloggers love E6000 glue so I bought it. Am I missing a step because anytime I use it for various crafts, the components fall right off… any advice?

    This is an awesome idea and your execution is so good! Are you just lucky that the stud trim fit the width of your clutch exactly?
