Inspiration & Realisation? You rock my socks.

Have you heard of Inspiration & Realisation? It's one of the blogs that I faithfully stalk. Donatella (LOVE that name!) is such a sweetheart, and always comments on whatever crap I post. Buddies like that in blog land are awesome. 



On her blog, you'll find a TON of fabulous knock offs of clothing and jewelry designer pieces. Who wants to spend $200 on a shirt, when Donatella will show you how to make one for under $10? There's a ton of DIY's on there like that. 

Want to see some of my favorites? 





Donatella knocked off a Phillip Lim necklace and makes the tutorial look super easy. I heart this necklace, I want Santa to put it under my Christmas tree.












And I want one of these in my Christmas stocking. How fabulous would this be in turquoise and red?













And how about these? She took an ulgy $4 pair of capris, chopped them and added some grommets, and voila! So fabulous I want to go steal them from her.












And this, where she saw a shirt on Project Runway, and made a version for herself?












Donatella just hit 500 followers not long ago, congrats, chick! And she's promised to start doing some great giveaways (which I totally plan on winning). Go check her out, you won't regret it. She's awesomesauce.



You've been featured, Donatella, grab a button a shout it to the world. You officially rock.
