Black, White and a Little Sparkle

These jeans are another creation from the Customisez moi collection, I spent hours slaving on hand-stistching every sequins, my hands were so shot afterwards!
I hope you are enjoying our fabulous couch as well as our equally fabulous new Saarinen stool that my BF brought home the other day, we have a pair of them and they are just too cool... I needed to share.
I stole his shirt again as well as his cufflink which are, funny enough (or not), a gift from my mother that she found at Retro Paradise, the place is an endless pit of amazingness...

And this is a wonderful expression of my balance.... By the look of things I should definitely start doing yoga again!

And this is how I actually styled them for the competition, the dress has been seen before in this post while the jacket is my mighty jacket from The Jacket Challenge

The funky effect is totally on purpose to highlight the jeans... or I keep telling myself that!

White Collar Shirt

This is another piece from my 'collection'. The inspiration from the collection was masculine codes and so I wanted to give a play on the white collar shirt.
These removable collars act like necklace changing the feel of a plain white vintage blouse.
What do you think?

So excuse my long silence, I have been beyond busy with my new job and the competition 'Customisez moi'. It's a Belgian competition where you have to show a 10 piece collection of customised garments and if you get selected you get to show in Brussels in front of loads of very cool people and you can win a very exciting prize... I thought I would take part as, I don't know if you've noticed, but I customise a lot...
I'm not sure I have a shot because the people taking part a real serious people who go to fancy schools etc but I have to say that it was quite challenging and exciting to create a more or less coherent collection...

I will show you the outfits a bit later but I wanted to give you a snippet of one of the outfits tonight...

I hope you like it and cross fingers for me!!

C'est Jeudredi

Went for dinner with old housemates from university and realised that we finished uni way too long ago... 
Hope you had a good evening and enjoyed Vogue Fashion Night Out! x
