Even those of us who once believed we could hardly cut a straight line with a scissor, let alone thread a needle, have been super-inspired by the DIY movement. One major reason behind the craze: awesome DIY pros like Jenni Radosevich of I Spy DIY, who constantly provides the steps to recreate the runway-inspired pieces we'd love to wear and trends we're ready to test drive, all in easy-to-follow and cost-effective projects. Now, Jenni has taken her expertise off the browser and into your hands, in her first book available today, I Spy DIY Style.

Where: Coach, 143 Prince Street (near West Broadway); 212-473-6925.
I Spy DIY Style, $14.95, available at Amazon.
