When I found these '90's floral docs on Ebay I was so happy! I love the print! The heart printed tights are from Topshop, the skirt and bag are from ASOS and the top and blazer are from H&M.

Here is the photo shoot of my last fashion show!
You can see the eyelashes I made, shoes, hats, and two extra outfits

edit: someone asked for a detailed description:

My collection was inspired by the mysterious treasures of the sea.  I researched hermit crabs in clear glass shells and organic sea shapes for the aesthetics, while using hat making techniques for construction inspiration.  I  molded giant lobsters and shells into existence.  I made sure the raincoat embodied the glass shells in the hermit crab experiment, while the silk dress underneath was as soft as the body of a hermit crab.  I made my own resin crab and shell zipper pulls and shoe clips.  The prints on the linings, dress, and blouse were all designed and printed by me.  I made extra accessories as well: shell hat, plastic rain hat, and eyelashes.

What else can an architect do?



Of course fashion design would be one of the options. We are problem-solvers after all. Not that I personally have such plans, just to make that clear.

Hi sweeties! Excuse me for the lack of posts but I am in my final week at school and it's been very busy and it is going to be more busy for another week.. I am working in a workroom in 40 degrees now, poor me.. But within a week it's time to relax and enjoy the holidays! I think about laying in the sun, swimming and drinking cocktails all the time now.. I hope this weather continues as I am not going abroad! Do you already have plans for your summer holidays?

This is one of my outfits from last week. I was wearing a H&M bodycon dress and blazer, Sonia Rykiel wedges, Gina Tricot "Miu Miu" socks and a vintage boater hat.

Double thanks


Funny how I get more compliments at work when I wear my fun stuff.
Seems like the people I work with actually appreciate comic-inspired prints and bold colour.

Diabolik t-shirt, Sisley. Fuchsia A-line skirt, H&M. Metallic ballet flats, Maloles. Perspex ring, Accessorize.

I have to take a moment here and double thank my blog-and-real-life-friend Elena.

I don't remember if I have mentioned it before, but I've been having camera problems these last few weeks. Not something dramatic, but I seem to have misplaced my battery charger and I'm still unable to locate it till this day. That means I have been camera-less for quite a while. I managed not to fall back on my posting thanks to my stack of draft posts and the bottomless source that is the internet, but I was growing restless about my inability to post recent outfits. Cue Elena, who offered to lent me her old Sony camera until I figure this thing out.

And this Sisley t-shirt printed with Diabolik and Eva Kant, the Italian comic fictional characters, courtesy of Valuecom PR? Elena kindly gave it to me, as she already had it. So this post was totally made thanks to her, for two different reasons.

Double-thank you Elena, you're amazing!
