Blaze of Gold....

My dad a few weeks ago gave me his white suit (yes, very 70s) because he was going through his clothes and thought that he would never wear it again. Being a fan of white blazers I was very excited to be given it! They are very classic but can be worn with different things to modernise them.
I think my love of white blazers probably came from seeing Chloƫ Sevigny wear them many times:

Anyway I had ordered some gold studs from and really wanted to do a DYI with them. So when I was thinking about how I would accessorize the white blazer I suddenly thought of studding the collar!

A favourite blogger of my Cocorosa greatly inspired me in the idea as she had already studded a blazer, which turned out amazing!

This is how mine turned out:

Life in Pop Art

This week being inspired by Andy Warhol and Roy Liechtenstein in Art class i pulled out my 'one teaspoon' singlet that has a comic style print.

I'd bought a massive sequin bow at my local dollar store and thought i'd give it a wirl. I tried to create an outfit around the quirkyness of the top and bow into a style that demonstated the 'classic cool' of pop art but was still contemporary.
Bow - Hot Dollar, Glasses - Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas, Rings - Sportsgirl / City Beach,
Lace Leotard - Supre, Singlet - One Teaspoon
I don't know whether i would wear this outside of my house? I think I would get many stares.

I really love the comic on the singlet, it reads:

Man thinking: "How can I tell her -- I will never see her again--!"

Woman thinking: " He loves me, he loves me, he loves me!.."

BUT WHAT WILL HAPPEN?... will he leave her? will she tell him she loves him? Well you'll have to use your imagination!
