DIY FRIDAY and an outfit

This DIY idea is for all of you thrifters out there. If you are anything like me you have come across quite a few of these leather document holders at the thrift stores, you know they always have some Insurance companies logo on them or maybe a monogram or even a stain.

Well I picked up said document bag at the thrift last week with a large logo on it and I decided it could be cute with an organic cut out where the logo exacto knife and a crate and barrel catalog later( the catalog is for cushioning between the leather so you don't cut through) and voila! My new everything extra large clutch! What do you think?

Now I am going to make a cute pencil case with some cool fabric I picked up to go inside!

...and here is my first outfit post! For a cold and super rainy day. We are on day three of this now.
