PFW: Balmain shows me what I want to wear to every occasion.

Last season Balmain showed beautiful and detailed baroque style pieces with such intricate beading . This season , if we look past the 80’s inspired shoulder pads , we have the perfect party dresses. Short but not skanky because they are simply too fashion to be skanky and (again) the most intricate details. I really think they should go into couture eventually. Mark my words , these dresses will be street style stars. Don’t you just picture these looks with disheveled hair and a smoky eye à la Marion Cotillard on the cover of Vogue Paris?

Acne Studios Cypress

I have a newfound obssesions for everything swedish. I really wish I could be the  icy stared and porcelained skin girl for Sweden (Think Daphne Groenveld , she has the swedsh look eventhough she is not). With this love for Sweden comes a love fror any swedish designer , such as Hope and Acne Studios. Acne has produced what in my opinion is the perfect Fall boot that will never go out of style . Oxblood if you want to be on trend, black if you want to wear them everyday , white for the peole who live in a non rainy/snowy area (read: not me) and camel for the western girl in us all. The heel looks so comfortable , I can just picture myself walking down some street in Stolkholm wearing Rag and Bone jeans , a Hope sweater and these boots.

 

Celine Tshirt DIY

So long long ago I promised a Celine Tshirt DIY. I have a tiny obsession with perfect basics lately so I decided to do this post after all . It’s really easy so do not fear just follow the steps

Step 1 :
You will need a pencil or something to write with , black acrylic paint or fabric paint , a small paint brush , tide to go , a cardboard and a white Tshirt . Mine is from a thrift store and it’s Puma.

Step 2. Insert your cardboard inside your Tshirt and it must be strait !

Step 3 : draw with your pencil the words “Celine Paris ” or whatever you want to write.

Step 4 : paint your traced letters with the paint and the paintbrush. At the end of your letters , make your paintstrokes show a little , it looks more authentic this way.

Step 5 : correct the writing that you did with a pencil that still shows with tide to go. Note : tide to go does not remove acrylic paint and look at your final look! Don’t wear until its really dry (let dry for like 2 hours before wearing and a day before washing)
