That's right - it's another t-shirt re-vamp DIY project ! This time, it was inspired by the braided jumper seen on Hanneli 's blog here . As I didn't have any old jumpers to use at my disposal, I again raided my stash of American Apparel t-shirts ( see my last DIY project for another way to cut up a shirt! ).
This is my first sewing DIY! Yes, I got a sewing machine. Finally! For years I have been avoiding sewing projects, unless there was some sort of no-sew work around. Our friend Jill is getting married so I made this case for her iPad so she can take it to all of her wedding appointments.
I can’t believe this is my last DIY post of 2011… what a fantastic year! This great DIY project is super easy and perfect for personalized bride shoes, bridesmaids shoes… or for New Years Eve! Pin Supplies: High heels preferably with a smooth heel area (mine are from Payless ), enough “seed” type beads to cover the chosen area, my favorite glue E600, a paint brush that you are willing to throw away, a paper plate and a bowl. Start by pouring all your beads into a bowl and then putting a large amount of glue onto your paper plate. Next, very carefully paint a layer of glue onto the smooth part of the heel, I did only one half of the heel at a time.
This year I attended vintage fashion expo in Santa Monica for both the days it was held. The first day my girlfriends and I attended it together and I was very happy to introduce them to "my vintage world" as they both work more with contemporary fashion. I am always so happy to share the world of vintage with my friends and love talking to the booth vendors and sellers. I will admit that buying vintage clothing is much more fun than selling vintage clothing which can be quite problematic when one owns a vintage shop... As I perused through the racks of 1950s party dresses, squealed over the beaded 1920s flapper gowns, and nearly fainted over Edwardian dresses, I started to wonder why do I buy vintage. Why were these women around me buying vintage?
La première Black fashion week se déroule les 4, 5 et 6 octobre à Paris. L’occasion de surfer sur les meilleurs blogs dédiés au style afro. Mbathio Beye, miss black France 2012. - Photo Mario Epanya. Six mois après l’élection de Mbathio Beye, première miss Black France, Paris accueille la Black Fashion week. Ces trois soirées de défilés espèrent donner un peu de visibilité à la mode africaine, largement délaissée par l’autre fashion week qui vient de s’achever à Paris. L’événement parrainé par Youssou N’Dour, ministre de la culture sénégalais, a été imaginé par Adama, styliste sénégalaise installée à Los Angeles, et fondatrice il y a une dizaine d’années de la semaine de la mode de Dakar.

Dace S/S 2013 Right now, Spring couldn’t seem further away. We had to cancel this weekend’s Tennessee trip due to snow, and to make matters even worse I somehow managed to catch my second cold of 2013.
C’est l’une des tendances graphique pour l’année 2009, une sorte de double revival : celui des années 50 , à coup de pin-up et pub colorées, et celui des années 80 , début du jeu vidéo et des effets lumineux dans le genre « Tron ». Revue d’un style qui devrait s’accentuer dans les prochains mois. Webdesign De nombreux sites web ont repris les codes graphiques de l’Amérique d’après-guerre : pin-up, couleur délavées, chrome, enseigne lumineuse… En France, rien d’évident pour le moment, mais attention au retour du style Banania A voir : Graphisme
