Alexander McQueen A/W 2010 | Fashion Week Photos | Catwalk Shows | Marie Claire
With warm weather comes the challenge of dressing light and fashionable. It makes life so much easier when you can step outside and not have a doubt in your mind about being cold and needing someplace to stuff your sweater and scarf!To take your effortless summer style to the next level, add a statement clutch that doubles as some serious ring bling. The legendary Alexander McQueen inspired this fierce knuckle clutch, big enough to carry some cash, your lipstick and a pair of sunglasses! We picked up all our supplies for under $20.00 (a steal compared to McQueen's version, priced over a grand). Try this DIY and you'll see how easy (and easy on the wallet!) it is to look chic and effortless. How would we style our gold McQueen-inspired clutch? Pair with a white dress, gold tone pumps and some red hot lips! What you'll need - - Pick up a cute sunglass case or use an old one you have laying around - 2 pairs of double finger rings - (We got ours at Forever21)- Heavy duty glue such as E-6000Step 1 -Take your case and stand it up so it's facing you in the direction you want to open it.Step 2 - Glue each ring down (We made ours bling side down, but it's your DIY so you choose!) They should almost be touching one another.Step 3 - Hold down the rings for about 3 minutes or until they are dry enough to stand alone. Let dry for 24 hours.
