I went fabric shopping the other day, searching for a new 1m to fling around my neck and call it a scarf. Ended up getting some black sheer fabric for a skirt idea, bit of soft black leather for leather garter maybe and a metre of khaki army-esque fabric for the neck.

Now watch me fail with the sewing machine.

Doris, my sewing machine, chainsmokes and spits in the flowerpot. The area under her armpit is always dark and she wears mules around the house. We do not get along very well.

  19. I understand your problem with sewing machines, I kind of have the same, but I’m definetly going to take a class to solve it!! and then I ll be queen of the world!!

  20. Ha ha I LOVE the way you talk about your sewing machine :) I’m looking forward to seeing the result of your project!

    I also like this outfit you are wearing a lot, especially the jacket with stud details, ah..makes me miss living somewhere with access to Zara. Damn.

  21. Doris should meet my sewing machine, Bob. He hates that I’m the one constantly touching me and only behaves for my boyfriend.

    Also, that’s how I find new scarves too!

  22. That’s one gorgeous jacket! I’m sooo jealous!! If we only had Zara here.. sigh. And I really like that “scarf” on you. ;D

  23. Great look, Shini!

  24. Lovely outfit! You always look so good.

    the 3rd pic has such a nice “feeling” to it. My machine, brother, does not like working with sheer fabrics…have fun & good luck.. black sheer sounds pretty!
