I had the chance to go to a private sale today, which sells Adidas Originals stuff. So I bought 2 pairs of sneakers (streetwear, not sporty types) for $80! Really good deal. Check out the pictures.
Maybe I just watched The Wizard of Oz today at the theatre, and that's why I am drawn to these red shoes. LOL.
I like black leather sneakers! This is my 3rd pair. I have classic converse and jack pucell too.
Ok this is the crafty bit. I realised that I am the most creative and inspired when it least strikes me. I was roaming around town today by myself after the performance, and I was thinking about what stuff I can come up with for the black/white dinner tomorrow. I am frankly sick of people (at work) coming to me for pieces of advice like I know everything there is to know on acessories. I am even kind of anti this event. But I was at Spotlight, and inspiration struck me. I bought a whole bunch of little rosettes.. in black, white, ivory and I threw in some purples for fun. I wanted to make a corsage which I can wear on my hand. I know the others have bought some flower stuff which they can put in their hair, etc.... but buying ready made ones can be expensive, and well, normal. I didn't have a plan of what I was going to do, but it is going to involve lots of twisting, little roses, lace and black/white of course. I should have taken pictures of the whole process, but I got totally carried away with the making of. And my folks got in the act too, my dad helped with the 'sealing' up of the bouquet stem, and my mom sewed the lace stuff and the bouquet to the lace wristlet/scrunchie thing. I will coil a black pearl necklace around my wrist for added drama. Enjoy the pictures!
I didn't take a picture of me wearing it.. but it is just a really frilly, lacy, 'rosy' piece of KICK ASS homemade accessory.
I am quite happy with the results!
I am planning to wear a simple black long sleeve top, and jeans. This DIY corsage is just going to be the OVER THE TOP, screaming for attention centrepiece of my outfit (maybe together with the monochrome eyelook if I have the guts to pull it off). Maybe I will wear one of my new sneakers. Totally clashing, and confusing.
More updates tomorrow!
