Oh how I love pastels... I have always loved them, but since they're now in season I can cruise the shops looking for the perfect shades to fit my skintone. I'am quite pale and not all pastels look good on that kind of skintone. Here are some of my latest find... ánd my version of a lovely DIY project I stumbled upon recently.
Another trendy item we can't seem to ignore are perspex clutches. Fendi...Valentino... Charlotte Olympia; they all had a specimen in their collections over the last few years. It's not a new invention, during the fifties lucite clutches were very popular and I'm pretty sure the modern-day versions are inspired by the authentic ones. I really love them (old ánd new) but most of the times they are quite expensive; so why not make your own! I followed in the footsteps of many bloggers before.... because I have seen the DIY-clutch projects in many shapes and sizes. But it took me a while to find the perfect sized box myzelf. So here is my version!
|Acrylic box + vintage-y doorknob= clutch!|
|River Island strappy sandals; bought at the RI-Elle night with a nice discount|
|Strappy H&M sandals... love the rose metallic|
|Voila! My Blackberry, some perfume and a wallet in there is all I need|
|Pretty shiny details|
|You can buy these knobs at Xenos for instance! The box was the wrapping for a perfume bottle.|
|RI love (L)|
|I see myself!|
|Gorgeous mint green vintage sequin blazer|
