Lately I’ve been customising my clothes. The idea of wearing something that has a little of bit of my personality makes me happy, even I didn’t make the clothes from scratch adding something that says something about me or what I believe is super special. I believe it’s important not to follow the consumerism trap. You don’t need a lot of money or tremendous skills to look unique. You only need to have a strong desire and passion to express yourself with clothes.
For this DIY, I only used black fabric paint that cost me £2.50. I bought the white shirt in a charity shop for £1. The cost of the DIY was £3.50 in total. I printed the letters using the black paint, brush and a stencil. For the jeans I only used a fabric marker to make the eyes by hand.
I picked the word NOW to print in my shirt. NOW WHAT? Because NOW is the only thing we own and we should enjoy to the max; NOW is enjoying that cup of coffee you are drinking, NOW is the time you say what you think, NOW is the time when you take action to do what you always wanted to do, NOW is when you enjoy that talk with your friends, or that walk on your way home etc…
Our mind is never in the present moment and we must remind ourselves to live NOW and enjoy all the beautiful, simple and free things that life give us each day.
