Today's attire

Denim and Lace

Denim and lace… that’s so 80’s Madonna, isn’t it? Cindy Lauper? Oh my. I like the 80’s as much as then next one, I really do, but I really think it’s time to give denim and lace an update. I really love the soft colors girly-edgy juxtaposition of the combination… it can be trashy, but not always.  And as much as I wear my one pair of jeans, I absolutely live in my denim vest, at least once a week or maybe I’ll go two weeks without wearing it. I just love it. Though I’m trying to figure out new ways of appropriate it, as it’s a little too big in the shoulders, I’ve tried belting it, and using this Stories by Rikke Mai black bird pin to change it fit and add a detail.

Also… I’m holding of on posting with this but I can’t much longer… the beautiful K-Line had sent me this bendy necklace and bracelet. I’m waiting for another one as I have plans, great plans to create sculptures, but this bendy jewelry is just awesome, I can’t stop trying out new ways to wear it. So a new post/homage is going to come, dedicated entirely to the bendy necklace. Just you wait!

Oh, on a last note, Chictopia is holding a springtime attire contest, where the winner gets featured on Refinery29… I’m really hoping they’d pick me, but unless one of you enters… then I guess it’s ok if you win instead. ❤
