Velvet Opening Ceremony skirt, Cole Haan wooden heeled ankle boots, Karl Lagerfeld for Hanes DIY shirt.
My first Saturday morning back in New York City was glorious skirt weather. The only thing stopping me from going out into the warm breeze was a quick DIY and the fact that wrapping myself in my bed blanket is like a giant snuggle I never want to get out of. But, time to get to business. For the shirt, I made an incision to the right arm of my Karl Lagerfeld for Hanes t-shirt, (funds raised from the shirt benefit Cancer research) cutting it so that it went from long-sleeved winter ready, to an off the shoulder all-season-friendly top. I’ll admit, I have an unhealthy obsession with cutting up my clothes; I adore wearing the shirt backwards to reveal the sketch of Karl in the front instead of the back. So I was decked out in my newly-cut shirt, favorite velvet skirt from Opening Ceremony, suede heeled boots, and my Anna Sui coat bought on super sale at Anthropologie.
My creation made from a plastic frame, Teen Vogue spread, Dior perfume ad, and an old Thank You note card.
Lately I can't stop wishing I lived in the music video for Lily Allen’s song, "The Fear." Today I was listening to it as I foraged through the mounds of junk in my hall closet, until I found something of interest, a clear plastic frame to be exact. I began searching through my archive of magazines until I found graphics exuded a Parisian-feel, inspired by my recent trip to the Paris Market in Savannah, Georgia. After filling the frame with the cut-outs, I stapled a metal poodle chain to the inside. I'm in the midst of making a collection of these shadowbox collages, but I’ve run out of frames for now (I will post as I make more).
