- Its been a tough week.. I lost a dear friend, I will truly miss her.. and yesterday was also my Dad's death anniversary. I spent the day looking at photos, in tears, sad to be missing him so much and happy to be a part of him, still. I don't think I fear much in life. But losing loved ones scares the living daylight out of me..
- In an attempt to distract myself, I took a plunge into more DIY's. My workspace is such a mess, you'd think I had tried to assemble something that caused an explosion. I took some leatherette scraps and decided to make myself a fake Chanel pendant, inspired by all the blatant fake Chanel DIY's these days. It ended up being quilted - makes it a little more sturdy. I did take photos of most of the process so just let me know if it calls for a tutorial.. Its a great little DIY.
- We have all seen the little lace bras floating around lately, worn over or under over sized tanks and thanks to Amanda for tweeting about it, because otherwise I might have completely missed this one. I did have a little leftover lace from the time I bought half a yard to make myself lace gloves for a party I never attended.. and some leftover black jersey, hook & eye enclosures, black garter and scraps of black satin. It was fun making it, it looks delicate but the lace is actually quite sturdy. The jersey is practical because the stretch factor makes it unnecessary to dart the cup, unless of course you know how to/want to. Mine isn't darted, and the straps are made out of black garter because there is nothing I hate more than bras that cut into my shoulders.
- I got my Ann Demeulemeester knockoffs yesterday - sadly I cant even stand up in them without getting blisters. So frustrating. They are gonna be sent back tomorrow. Sad sad.
- Trying to do a little researching about fashion schools in the US.. maybe I will find the perfect one to get a degree at. Fingers crossed.
- Oh and OMG to this.
So glad the weekend is almost here. I need a stiff drink asap. Meet me there?PS: Yes I filled my eyebrows in. Im lovin' the strong eyebrow/barely there makeup.
