This is my beautiful cousin modeling for NYhop: “rabbit themed clothing for humans.” The artist makes all sorts of fun items, from screen-printed t-shirts to funky cowboy boots. I posted some of my favorites here, click on the photos to be whisked away to their super cute Etsy store.
Nicole rocking the 'brush rabbit tank top'
you gotta love the 'kissing jackalope' tank!
'rowl hoodie dress'? yes please.
this 'little jackalope purse' is my favorite, want!!
So, I had to unlike Nasty Gal on Facebook and remove it out of my favorites on my toolbar. I simply cannot afford a single piece from the site at the moment. I am done teasing myself with all of the amazing colors, cuts, fringes, fabrics, brands, shoes, sparkles… anyway.
Instead of bitching about my lack of expendable income, I will find one piece a week that I want more than life, and I will make it myself. Lorraine’s fabric in Pawtucket, RI, sells great fabric for $1.99 a yard. So this week I will make this:
out of this:
You cant really tell by the image, but the fabric is actually a light weight velour in a pea-green color. The trim is a great ivory. I am going to look like I stumbled out of the 70′s! Stay tuned for updates
Oh and, I have never made a long-sleeve dress before. But I totally got it. Right? Haha.
so I rocked this corset last night at work and it was a big hit. so sexy but not comfortable, not even a little bit. couldn’t breath, let alone run around for 4 hours and make drinks for the drunken masses.
Anyway. The brand is Pleasure Doing Business, and they have a bunch of awesome pieces floating around the internet, mostly on Revolve.com. I scored mine for $10 bucks on closeout, cause its a super tiny xs that regular human beings shouldn’t be able to fit in to. Its WAY too small for me, but I needed it anyway.
Here are a few other pieces that I like, click on the photos to hop to Revolve.com!
The corset is sort of like ace bandage material – 18% rubber.
This June-uary has been absolutely fantastic huh? I couldn’t help but dig this silk scarf out of my summer clothing bin to rock on this 50-something degree day. Who doesn’t love a good popsicle? Especially when made out of Vintage Italian Silk and paired with my favorite caged dress!
So yesterday’s post garnered about a thousand views in just a few short hours. Note to self: expose bum to maximize blog traffic.
Warning: No exposed derrieres in this post, sorry.
I found this amazing skirt at Savers a few months ago. It was a terribly awkward, to-the-knee length. I finally got around to hemming it and I am so incredibly hyped on the cut, colors and overall look of this piece. I decided to pair it will tons of black and a simple, sleek hair-do. What do you guys think? Are we going to get another season out of the high-waisted miniskirt or what? I hope so!
Can’t forget about the faux ivory heffalump necklace or the sexy bodycon dress! With the cardigan and flat shoes I can totally rock this number to work, I just need to lose the sweater for a night out on the town. Love you all <3
Hello lovers. For all of my readers who are home alone crafting on this day of romance, here is a fun t-shirt alteration tutorial. Its been a while since I shared a how-to post with you guys, let me know what you think and what other sort of items you would like me to make!
1. Lay your t-shirt on a flat surface. Grab your ruler and your fabric marker and draw out your pattern. Our lines are 3/4″ wide and 3″ long (so 6″ long in total, because the shirt is folded in half)
2. Grab you scissors and cut along the horizontal lines! I only cut the top line 1″ in and the 2nd line 2″ in, this makes it look like the pattern tapers towards the top of the rib cage.
3. Stretch out each of the strips of fabric, this makes the shirt fall into place nicely when you put it on.
4. Turn the shirt right-side-out and shake it out. Grab the second strip and tuck it behind and through the space over the 1st strip. Take the 3rd strip and tuck it behind and through the space over the 2nd strip. Repeat until you get down to the bottom. This is difficult to explain, but check out the photo here and figure it out! I have faith in you.
This is the 2nd strip woven behind the 1st strip. Now we will grab the 3rd and put it through the 2nd.
5. Once you get to the Bottom, you can either tie the last two pieces in a knot or sew it like I did!
Thanks Joshua for helping with this extra special Valentine’s Day project
I have been rocking a lot of costumes for my new job! Totally fun. You can’t really tell, because I am a terrible self-photographer, but I am wearing a Canadian tuxedo in the last photo. Dark denim on denim, baby.
A couple tips for the hippie, party girl who has to look like a normal human being for her awesome job: get a couple cropped & fitted blazers (I have a black one with ruffled shoulders from Juicy and an amazing denim one from RVCA.) You can even dress up a t-shirt with the right blazer and accessory combo!
