and the moon said....



















Today was a beautiful sun lit day, white rays of light diffusing over Manhattan, a perfect day,

Somehow a perfect lit day reminds me of perfect lit evenings, and how do i long for those evenings, when whites seem to glow and beam against deep mysterious endless black.. and silver streams of reflections howl to the moon... thats how I felt today :) howling to the moon...

The Blouse is Vintage, 35 dollars, the Skirt is American Apparel, the knee-highs H&M and my silver shoes vintage too, 3 dollars :)

xoxo

ohhhh big shout outs to Stylecopycat for the feature :) :) you made my day :) you all did :)

I don't know yet haha :)

Levi's and Bows







The jeans and shoes are from Urban Outfitters, just got them this Friday :) and I have to say that I forgot how comfi those Levi's were! These booties i just loved instantly, the heel is not too high and they can go with lots of stuff..

I have no idea how long these shorts are going to last in Urban Outfitters..


The top is from H&M about 25 dollars, the fit is very wide and not as tailored as I had hoped it to be but of course I did some nip and tuck, pined the shirt in the back and this shirt is longer, the bow falls on the waist, maybe a bit under it, so I grabbed all under the bow and folded it up.. I love this shirt for the simple reason that you can wear it in a zillion ways!!

I'm still with my snout and outfits on this Swedish website too :) hope you guys check it out and vote :) :) and check out their street section too, its really good!

DIY bejeweled












these are my DIY embellished tights, I embellished them with chains.
What I wear; Mint Jacket (consignment store/tokio7 $70), Sass&Bide dress (consignment $45) cardigan Marc by Marc Jacobs (consignment/tokio7 $30) Boots Miu Miu (consignment/tokio7 $90) Tights by me and still in progress haha :)


I'm embellishing these tights with chains, thick, thin, silver, gold and copper, I figured out by smartly dividing the weight that the tights don't run!! With walking around it hold perfectly too, and gives an amazing effect, especially when it gets dark!!

And before I forget.. This Swedish website decided to put my Snout on their street section,
anyways, you can go to the site, by clicking on the photo's you can vote by clicking on the "heart" you guys will see some more familiar faces :) :)

magic garden













Just an Inspiration post, Editorials from so-en (april 2009), and Li Edelkoort's Bloom.

I spent a lot of time in the Japanese bookstore, love the magazines, and love their Editorials.

And then the Bloom! like the View on Colour (sadly they stopped publishing :( are my bibles, my desires, I want them all haha and they are massive expensive.. but Li Edelkoort is a true Genius! So when ever possible I'll go and treat myself for a magazine (I really want the back issues too)

I hope and shall do my best to expose you all as much as possible to her work lol.. especially the View on Colours are really good and I'm so happy I have a few..

On another note.. I'm still busy with my tights :) and have decided to, when I finish them to give them away, because I fucking hate it when fashion/art becomes fucking unobtainable.. What the fuck are Marc, Karl and whoever thinking? for who the fuck are they designing? certainly not for their so called fucking muses because hey, the fucked up artist, the grunge rockstar or tainty model has no fucking money!.. its a marketing campain running and thats it, they need to become fucking real! so I refuse to charge a fucking 150 dollars for my tights, because calculating materials and time that would be it and they will not last, tights have no long life by all means..

But I will do a whole post about it and hope other designers are willing to join in :) I was thinking a la "haute for free" or "couture giveaway" whatever.. please let me know if you guys are up for it...

DIY embellished tights














So I started to DIY embellished tights, spent the late night hours doing it and it feels so good to finally make things again haha..

I was today in China Town hoping to find some knock off Chanel and LV tight but no luck :(


I did bought two knock off real leather Chanel bags lol, dude they come with little Chanel booklets and authenticity cards (with serial number) all high quality paper!!?? better be careful with ebay stuff because these are copied into every little detail!

Its so fun though, to follow this Chinese lady to little back-rooms or being taken to a warehouse in some dark alley, today she walked me to her SUV, someone was standing on watch, it was clear, we went into the car, she showed me what she got, made the payment, then she called the "watch-out" to make sure there wasn't any police and I left... haha Chanel Dealer...


Anyway.. on the first photo, I wear a vintage blouse under my shredded t-shirt (shirt done by; whatwerock) and again my tutu to create silhouette, on the other photos its just the shirt, I choose to wear the tights with something more rough and dark, guess it was my mood..

More tights coming up :) xoxo

I wish for...




really check out oak for most of these goodies, the Alexander Wang is really expensive as well the Acne heels, but, it investing sometimes in a perfect shoe or perfect clutch can be worth it..





This jacket is from Helllooks ebay store, a jean/biker jacket.. hmmm :) the rings are out of this world expensive and I will never be able to afford them, and even if I could I still wouldn't haha, I will try to find something similar in vintage.. the clogs.. yes yes yes!!!





the lanvin belt is going to be a DIY, love and will shop for this outfit of cropped tee with these jean shorts and would top the outfit of with heels like this, again too expensive but its the perfect hue blue, perfect in shape, I only don't think I like the gold...


okay, thigh high boots, the first one is classic but seriously expensive the 2nd one is on sale, love this ballooning effect but its a hard cookie to pull off.. hope zara will have some thigh highs soon...

a sheer curtain floating





Every now and then I get Nostalgic... I designed these dresses 4 years ago..

After graduating I was doing a lot of freelance styling and running back and forth to Amsterdam to drop off clothing for magazine publications, and yes to see your clothing in magazines was amazing..

but back then I was too shy, too insecure, and not sharp enough, I would hardly get paid if I would get paid, It was just too early, then I went for a five day trip to New York, applied to a job and got the job,I had a salary:)

But seeing what my friends do now and what I could have been doing too... makes me so angry with myself..

I truly have an amazing job, I'm a trend forecaster, a Visionair, and create colors and trends seasons a head, not runway but inspirational, and when I was designing I didn't made ready to wear, I believe things are not ment to last, so my clothing isn't, I love the moment went things start to fall apart, like a flower, for me its most beautiful on that moment it starts to fade.. I like to capture that very moment..

My boss and coworkers don't understand why I'm so resentful, but it is because of this, I'm comfortable, having a steady job and a salary and shop shop shop, buy buy buy, but my hearth lies with my creations, I want to touch and feel.. but after 4 years of a spoiled New York life, living an artist life in Paris? Be poor, sell nothing... My friends and parents want me to make the jump.. I'm like a fat cat..

Chictopia made me crave for designing again.. I want to embellish sheer tights, with beads, pearls, lace, whatever, loose treads, halfly falling apart....

Sad Sad so Sad, will feel better after buying some new shoes... :)
