Erica Domesek is one serious markswoman — with a jewel-bedazzled glue gun that is. The "Fashion Queen of DIY" (as dubbed by Elle
) has been one busy lady this month, promoting her second book P.S. - You're invited...
, relaunching her site, and (of course) churning out crazy-gorgeous projects on the daily.
So, we were pretty stoked when Domesek agreed to take us on a crafting adventure to all her favorite NYC stores. From the embellishment-wonderland Pacific Trimmings to Spandex World (yep, you read that right!), she chatted with other customers about their projects, convinced us that decorative patches are "THE thing," and let us in on her DIY tricks of the trade. Think you're not crafty? Click on — we dare you to not be inspired.
