Let me share with you what this project is about and how you can participate. I will be collaborating with a designer in New York, Aiden Vo,  to reconstruct a vintage piece to make it current and fresh. I will post the final lookbook on the blog which Loc will be shooting once it’s completed. You will see how we use our lenovo Touch PCs during our creative process via my instagram, twitter, Facebook, Aiden’s instagram, and Loc’s instagram.

Hello everyone! I hope you are all well. I want to share with you a little DIY project that I did recently. I had a great little Zara jacket that I wanted to play with and the Chanel backless jacket that Miroslava Duma wore inspired the project. I couldn’t stop thinking about how much I love the look of a tweed jacket with an open back. I took a little risk and went into my closet looking for a piece I could cut to create this look. I thought my Zara jacket would be fun to turn into a back-less number. You always can look for a vintage tweed jacket for this DIY project. Have a great day everyone!! xo Nini



Step 1: Get your supplies: some pins, a ruler or tape measure and chalk or a light colored high-lighter, needle and some threads.

Step 2: Decide on how much you want to cut off. If you see yourself wearing the jacket with low waisted pants, it should cut below the waist. I wanted the jacket just above my waist for outfits with high-waisted skirts or shorts.

Step 3: Pin it. I always concentrate on making sure all the seams are even and after double checking, I cut.

Step 4: Sewing the seams. You can hand-stitch the seam back yourself or sew it with a sewing machine. You can have the option of a clean finish hem or let them distressed
