Blogger Highlight: I Spy DIY

Jenni of I SPY DIY creates some of our favorite fashion forward DIY projects. We are constantly amazed by each of her projects and often yearn for more. Since it is rhinestone week here at M&J we felt this was the perfect time to show off I SPY DIY’s latest decorated denim DIY tutorial. We were excited to show you how I SPY DIY updated her daisy dukes. We adore this look and all of I SPY DIY’s posts. Click on the images for the full tutorial.

Blogger Highlight: Studs and Pearls

This week those of us at M&J are officially having a floral phenomenon. Our obsession with the floral print trend has gone to an extreme now that Spring is upon us.  Apparently we are not the only ones crazed by this trend since we stumbled across this great D.I.Y Painted Floral Purse courtesy of studs and pearls. We’re all about a stand out piece and this bag will certainly get you noticed. Click on the image for the full tutorial provided by Studs and Pearls.
