Miu Miu collar

The Miu Miu spring 2010RTW collection was gorgeous. Cute prints of pussy cats, swallows and naked women (suspicious combination if you ask me...) combined with sequins, fabrics in blue, black, white and red. My favourite piece:

My point is, anything Miu Miu would be too expensive for me. Therefore, a little DIY project resulted in a couple of collars instead. I rarely end up actually wearing things I've made myself, or partially made myself. But these turned out quite well.

My inner narcissist shining through again

And by the way, I did not come up with this idea myself. Someone else did, don't remember where I saw it. No idea is ever original.


I reject your reality and substitute my own

Yes, mine. The flaunting of newly acquired treasures can begin. Newly meaning this summer which now is at an end. I could smell the fall this morning. I think winter will come early this year. (When winter has still not arrived come December, one might find that last prediction modified to "winter will be late this year, fall will be long".)

Shoes and clothing. Second hand and new (notice that I am not saying vintage. More on that later). The grey tassels are attached to a bag that mostly just goes by the name "elephant pouch" or "elephant scrotum".

Oh, baby! How I love these:

Leopardprint wedges. Light as an empty butterbox. My feet have never before worn high heeled shoes as comfortable as these. (The Manfriend I live with hates them. I have to keep telling him that wearing animalprints does not a russian hooker make.) And they make me six feet tall.

Slight redecoration of living quarters has taken place this summer, changing of cushions on couch. Feeling espescially proud considering I have sewn four of the cushion covers myself. The bottom three ones plus the green one with dots. I suspect that Manfriend might find the cushions a wee bit too feminine.
