Climbing up the walls


shorts - thrifted & DIYed, shredded tee - F21 (DIYed), shoes - vintage converse chuck taylors

denim shorts - people are people, dress - gift from mom (shortened), gladiators - cotton on, bag - vintage

My Nana got a big fat shock when I showed up on her doorstep in all my grungy goodness. She especially despises my ripped baggy shorts, and my high top converse chucks. She pretty much just stared at them and didn't say a word until I jokingly asked her how she liked my shoes, to which she didn't reply, but just shook her head with a disgusted look on her face. Oh, how I my Nana. She must have thought I needed money to buy "proper" clothes, because before leaving, she handed me a little shopping money.. she also gave me a really heavy gold bracelet my Lolo (granddad) made. Going to see my Nana always brings me so much joy. I silently promised to not disappoint her wardrobe wise when I go home this Christmas.

Now lets answer tags.

I was given this by oddgirldiaries.

6 Random Things That Make Me Smile

  • keeping in touch with friends from across the globe, especially the extra special ones.
  • thrifting/vintage shopping - especially when I find lots of goodies
  • sewing! making stuff in general, especially when my friends ask me, "where did you buy that?"
  • music. when I feel crappola and all, radiohead. when happier, dancehall. these days, my new favorite, Elliott Smith [♥]
  • talking to girlfriends about boys. its still entertaining, up to this day.
  • when I feel sticky on a hot day and jump into the water to swim or kite, and to cool off. its the best feeling ever.
I again tag the ones I tagged above, and whoever wants to do the tag.


Ive been in a catatonic state lately, and not much has helped. I am anticipating change for the beginning of the year, and am a nervous wreck, my anxiety is just getting the best of me. So now I will lie down again and immerse myself in Radiohead and Elliott Smiths melodic melancholy.

that shredding turned out awesome! I'm really gonna have to give it a go!

What kinda tee did you use?

Dane said...

I used a stretchy tee from F21 that I fished out of the sale bin. Its easier to shred something stretchy, so the threads dont snap as easily. I plan to shred it some more, It a little time consuming, but fun to do when youre bored.

first of all, thanks for the award and the tag. i'll do this in my next post. :)
secondly, that shirt is amazing! did u use a super stretchy tee? because i tried it and it looked awkward at first so i stopped. if it's gonna look good as this, then i am finishing that friggin shirt.
and lastly, you are too funny. crappola and all. like that.

end of ramble.

The shirt I used is cotton/polyester/spandex. Its very stretchy. So when I shredded it, it was still held together by the tiny strands of spandex. It holds the piece together instead of having major shredded bits hanging down, you should give it a go. =)
