DIY Rodarte-inspired scarf



























Not me but my Mother made this DIY Rodarte-inspired shawl! with help of Park&Cube's DIY Rodarte Shawl tutorial after she got inspired by my Zara black and white striped sweater, seen here,
I had no idea my Moms had a knitting frenzy, I came home and found a mohair scarf similar to my Zara sweater, not realizing she made it her self!! the second she told me she made the first scarf after seeing my blog post I showed her Park&Cube's blog and some Rodarte designs with this scarf being the result :) :)


and much thanks to Roxana for my cosmopolitan Romania feature and Joanna for my Cleo Magazine Australia feature! I will post the photos soon!!

I'm wearing a DIY Rodarte-inspired scarf, Vintage pink dress, H&M Sequined leggings (a freakin' Medium cause they didnt had my freakin' size anymore, I wear them as freakin' pants), Zara Sequined biker jacket, Zara boots.

Wow, don't you love it when mothers get so creative though? But instead of making those cheesy arts and crafts, they go and make something all high-end. :)

Oh Chantal this is one of my favorite posts!! Everything's so perfect here. First of all, THAT dress looks simply magical. The fitting looks stunning on you and the sheerness is an added bonus! Secondly, THAT scarf. All I can say is that your mom is a genius! Do you think she would make me one?? ;) Lastly, but most importantly, THAT leggings!! I'm actually happy you got it in medium, the loose fitting looks amazing on your beautiful long legs!

Love love love :)

Thank you for your comment:)
I want that scarf, it is so nice:)

kim J said...

hey! so I was thinking about the F21 boots and perhaps they can be the stand in for the jc poland booties until you get them but if it's going to cost you $70 the quality isn't worth it I think. I've been waiting for the poland booties too! I hope that helped :)

your mom did a killer job with the scarf, it's beautiful.
