Lately I've been all about DIY projects. There's something wonderful about wearing or using something you made yourself, or at least decorated yourself. For much of my DIY inspiration I turn to the blog a Pair & a Spare by Australian beauty Geneva Vanderzeil, but really her blog is so much more than just craft inspiration.
A Pair & a Spare covers everything from reconstructing thrift shop finds, to travel and packing advice, to outfit inspiration. Vanderzeil really does it all. Her light and casual tone gives her blog a sense of friendliness, like it belongs to your BFF or a girl you know. I especially love the ease and simplicity of many of her outfits and DIY projects. Another wonderful aspect of her blog is her partnership with craft supplier Wander & Hunt. On their website, she sells DIY kits and supplies to compliment her projects and makes finding supplies an absolute breeze.
Vanderzeil is constantly posting new content, making a Pair & a Spare a daily stop for me. I know I'll always find something new to try or something exciting to inspire me. Check out some of her latest DIY projects below and click to get started!

Tune in tomorrow night at 10PM for the first episode of the second season of Vogue's "The Fashion Fund." The television series, hosted by the one and only Anna Wintour, follows a group of designers competing to win the CFDA/Vogue's Fashion Fund Designer of the Year award. And believe me the competition is tough!
Every year the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) hosts an awards ceremony to celebrate all the accomplishments the industry has had over the past year. One of the most prestigious awards goes to an up and coming designer that shows great potential and true talent. The designer who wins the Fashion Fund Designer of the Year award receives $300,000 to fund their work as well as a year long mentorship from some of the industries biggest names. Two runners-up also receive $100,000 each and mentors of their own. So you can see why these designers are working hard to ensure that they win.
See a preview of season 2 here and then head to Ovation.com to find out what channel to tune to in order to watch the series starting at 10PM tomorrow night!
*an earlier version of this post suggested The Fashion Fund is a web series, however it is a full fledged television show.
