Dress No. 2

1.png3.png5.png2.png4.png6.png8.png10.png9.png7.pngAnother show, another dress.. My friend Julie is in another show. This time she will perform Sheila in a production of Hair. I make dresses for her to wear at the premiere parties. You can see the first dress I made for her here.

This dress is inspired by the time period in which the musical takes place, the 1960’s. I made the dress in corduroy and I embellished the shoulders to dress it up a bit. She can dress it down with ballerina flats, and dress up with heels, heavy lashes and lots of eyeliner. For this shoot I wanted a complete look with white socks and retro make-up. It was actually really fun to recreate the sixties make-up look.

We had so much fun running around The Old Town in Aarhus. The pictures are taken in the part of the town portraying 1974. This might actually be my favourite part of the town.

Do sun visors have the potential to become trendy?

Let’s be honest.. sun visors are pratical, but also something I associate with socks in sandals..

When the sun is out in Denmark, I like to sit outside with a book and absorb as much radiation as possible. After a while it’s is just not comfortable any more. Sunglasses block out some of the sunshine going for my eyes, but never quite enough. Another thing is when the sunglasses starts slowly sliding down my nose when I begin to sweat.

You can wear a cap, but it is too hot and when you take it off your hair is sweaty..

What I am trying to say is: A sun visor is the perfect solution. What more can you wish for? Except maybe for a good looking one. I am feed up with uncomfortable outside reading and I am going to make this work.

Since my summer holiday has just begun, I have plenty of time for trying to convince people that sun visors look incredibly good on me!

These four visors are my favourites of what I have seen so far. Straw gives a more fancy look than the casual sports logo ones.

Sneaker Drama

Last Saturday I went to a sale at a newly opened sneakers store in Aarhus. After a quick look around I knew, it was impossible to leave without these Puma X Stampd sneakers (they are the softest shoes ever!).

It is now wednesday and I have worn them four days in a row. I was in the train home from school today, when I noticed a big yellow stain on the front of my gorgeous shoe. Not gonna lie.. I almost cried. I do not know where it came from, but I blame ALL dandelions!

When I got of the train I frantically ran around town trying to figure out how rescue my shoe (after an hour long google session on the train with no final solution). I ended up in the same shop where I bought the pair and asked for adviced. The guy recommended Jason Markk.

The stain is of and I am so relieved. Whether it was the soap that did or not, I do not know. Some kind of mild soap (read: cheaper) and any soft bistle brush might do the same job. Cleaning of sneakers is certainly a science and I have a lot to learn.

Below are a couple of pictures of a (now clean) pair of shoes.

This is a part of a school project I will hand in tomorrow. We had to design a small collection of tops inspired by a piece of art. The first picture is supposed to illustrate the universe I created to define my inspiration. We only had to sew one of the tops we had designed. Although the top was supposed to be grey, I am quite happy with the final product.
Right now I am just getting the last couple of things done before tomorrow, while drinking unhealthy amounts of tea in my pyjamas.

 

February crush

February may be know as the month of love.. I have definitely fallen in love with silver sneakers. Silver shoes have to be a must have this spring, because I see them everywhere. Last year I found the nike ones and it was love at first sight, but one pair simply isn’t enough for me.. If you want your own silver shoe addiction, you might like one of the styles above.
