DIY sequin tights

Here are a few quick pics of my DIY sequin tights. As I mentioned before, my inspiration came from these.  As you can see, photos are not easy for me to take of myself… but you get the idea. I’m feeling now that maybe my tights need MORE sequins? So here’s my work in progress:

feeling filly 2010

Love this fall 2010 Filly collection by Portland’s Emily Christensen’s, titled “The American.” The photography styling is beautiful, plus, I love purple pants.

sequins and rings

This morning I went out for a nice brunch and a shop with a friend. When I told my friend about a DIY sequin tights project, she handed over little bags of beautiful sequins for me to use. So I came back home and spent the next 4 hours sewing little sequins onto the knees of a pair of black tights, until I ran out of black thread. My DIY inspiration comes from these amazing things.

My fingers are about to fall off now so I’ll try to take some pics of them tomorrow and get them up on my next post! For now, I leave you with my favorite ring of the moment: the alphabet ring from catbird in Brooklyn. I would love to get 2 rings to wear on my right ring finger: one with my first initial and the other with my man’s first initial. ❤

weekend thoughts

Huge banana bread failure tonight. I adjusted my portions to suit my puny banana bunch and something went terribly wrong. Ah well, I’ll probably eat some of it anyway.

And who cares, it’s still open-window weather and nothing can beat that. Except my upcoming rendezvous with my moseyman in PARIS! You thought I was done mentioning that? Ha ha, no way near. I’m just starting to plan what I’ll pack (lying – I starting planning weeks ago). Knowing that the weather will be cooler there, I’m wishing I had some awesome leggings like this girl’s, to impress those Parisian passerbys:

AND here’s some Weekend Linkage:

tree in house

What a great big lively beast! We used to have a couple of tree plants in our old Tel Aviv home (Sally and Paddington – aka Paddy), but nothing quite as leafy and luxe like this one. I think that basket pot adds a nice touch too. What about you? Are you into homely tree plants?

movie style: mermaids

We love some movies for their story line, cinematography and character strength. We fall in love with some movies for their characters’ inspiring sense of style and personal crusade. Mermaids makes my Top 3. Got any fashion inspirations in your movie vault?

Character bookmark: Charlotte (played by Wynona Ryder).
Uniform love: 50’s dress with “ugly, old” boyish boots and a girly headband.

sessun in the winter

Weeeee, the Sessun autumn-winter 2011 collection is beautiful! And the styling so inspiring: vintage style coats, loose hair mixed with beach-house braids, striped shirts, plaid crazy-pants and white ribbed tights…

What’s just as interesting though is the photography: wistful, foggy and slightly sad. Kind of makes me want to hide away under the covers all day. But perhaps that just my mood. What do you think?

golden vines and diamond flowers

Remember sitting out in the field during school sports and making jewelry out of grass, flowers, & vines? This beautiful diamond vine ring from Sundance, seems to take those ideas one step further…
