schiele/self

Stumbled by Egon Schiele the other day, and I must say I really like his self-portraits. 

Anyway, to make it through November I've made a small list of what I can look forward to: 1. finally watching catching fire this Thursday 2. In less than three weeks I'm off to Tenerife 3. CHRISTMAS(!!! super excited this year and idk why) 4. oh and secret santa! Planning to do it this year.

DIY

So yesterday and Friday I had a couple of spontaneous projects. I cut off the collar of an unused crisp white shirt. I wanted to decorate it, so I bought a fabric marker and drew on a couple of cats (who doesn't want cats on their shirt collar???). I know it looks weird and uneven in the photo, but trust me; it's not visible when you wear it. 

I also ended up cutting my vintage flares into a pair of shorts. I really liked them as jeans, but they were never worn because I simply never found a way of styling them. I got them for only 40 kr, which is basically nothing. Haven't worn jeans shorts in a while though, but I'll definitely wear these a lot. I feel like they sort of have a 60's/50's-ish feel to them. 

And btw; thank you for your nice comments! I really appreciate them!

Wore this today and I liked it. I also bought a fabric marker and just finished my mini-project...will post it tomorrow. 

Also had the most fun, fabulous and nerdy Harry Potter-night this Thursday w/ some friends, and it made me remember how magical Harry Potter really is. I should read them again sometime this christmas.

tartan

coat-monki, shoes-monki, sweater-bikbok, skirt-vintage. 

This is from last weekend, but I didn't bother to post it until now because I've had a bit to do at school. And yes, I found the perfect red sweater! Though you can't see it in the photos (they were taken by twilight, so the quality isn't any good) it is superfluffy! It was exactly what I'd imagined. And just like the rest of you, I've totally fallen in love with tartan. So I was lucky enough to find my mum's old skirt from the 80's (haha almost Mean Girls reference..). I think she bought it in Zürich. Originally it's knee-lenght, but with the help from a couple of safety pins I made it shorter. Though I love knee-lenght, I'm not quite feeling it with this skirt, so I'm thinking about making it permanentely shorter. We'll see...I find it hard to change something on pieces with history.
