The trick to finally owning that new look without being frisked in it, is to reach into the imagination instead of empty pockets, to browse through blogs not online stores and to think DIY not ATM! The ���do it yourself��� attitude is trending and with prices climbing, if you want something on a tight budget, do it yourself.
