Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking.” - Miranda Priestly (The Devil Wears Prada 2006)

But this is florals for winter, it’s definitely rebellious, if not groundbreaking. And sheer white leggings and dresses, all weighed down of course by heavy yarn collages and sheepskin jackets. Oh set aside whatever inspired this ethereal collection (sleepwalking), the bravery to bring out SS fabrics onto an AW runway, and making it work so agreeably, is so admirable. They all say this collection lacked the usual badass factor of Rodarte, but in my opinion this rebellion is their best form of badass yet.

Black? For Winter? Groundbreaking, I’d like to just say.

Really, with studding DIY, all you need is imagination or inspiration. Hey, you don’t need anyone’s instructions to figure out how to stud the hell out of every inanimate object.

Check out the great DIY for the Studded Balmain Blazer done by the stylish Gennie from Maison des Rêveries. Love her blog, although most of the time I come out sobbing because of all the food and Chloés she dangles…

Such a perfect layering garment that would add instant texture and shape. I’ve never actually knitted clothes before so I’m getting ready for hours of frustration and potential stabbing of self with knitting needle.

Finally the weekend. Have a great one!

So It’s everywhere. For months now. Yesterday I was flicking through An Other Magazine and there was a spread with pictures of their studio. So now I can’t take it anymore; if I have knitting needles, why not put them to good use, huh.

The Fashion Spot

I’m thinking alternating needle sizes and yarn colour will help. If not, I’ll stick with one colour – but I’m sure that needle size will determine gappiness, and slipped stitches. I’ve ordered Mohair yarnballs…

Oh btw, most of the DIYs will go on Etsy soon once I have enough ‘stock’ to call it a store. So you can expect the DIY studded Mocassins and Round-studded Asos boots to go on sale. (Still waiting for studs for the Asos boots)
