DETAILS

Yesterday I found a really cool leather backpack from thrift store. Yes, I know, I already have one (seen here) which look almost the same. But I just love detailing of this one - silver buckles, studs and zipper on the back.

Winner of the CSN stores giveaway is Becky, congratulations!

Oh.. what can I say... Everything I'm working on at the moment is somehow related with my collection for the fashion contest (pleace recommend me some good songs to use on the runway, not very slow ones but something catchy). So I can't show you anything at the moment :D But I still have little bit time to check some new collections at fall/winter 2010/11 fashion weeks. Paris and Milan fashion weeks are still coming but I've already spotted some trends and found my favourite things. Here are some inspiration boards I made.


Shearling jackets

Velvet

Oh and please answer the poll I added to the sidebar. I need to find out average age of my blog readers. Thank you for answering;)

Paint it black

My tonight's outfit. I wore the new skirt with some nice buttons and the scalloped edge I got today. This is not the only thing I got from thrift store today. I have lot of new stuff to show to you;) But now I'm off to watch Alexander Wang live show here. I'm so excited.

/I'm wearing: lace body, skirt, belt - thirft store, earrings - self-designed/

McQueen

Fact that Alexander McQueen committed suicide yesterday probably shocked all of us. I can't say that I was his biggest fan because I know only his newst collections. So I felt that it's the right time to look back at his creations. I want to share with you what I found from my old collection catalogs from years 2001-1009.



How amazing is the fur piece (the third from the right) with knitted knee socks and those shoes.

Now I'm sure that he was a genius.
Rest in peace.

But in other news... I did some fabric, DIY-materials, thrift store shopping today. I hope I can show you the result tomorrow or on Sunday.

Giveaway with CSN stores



CSN stores
gave me wonderful oppurtunity to have giveaway with them. We're giving away one Areaware Grab Hand Hook ($75.00). I think it's perfect for holding your jewelry. My photoshop skills aren't the best but I tried to create picture (on the right side) of that how cool it look with all the chains and huge rings.
Unfortunately it's available only for my US and Canadian readers. It's not that I love them more but they just can't ship outside of the US and Canada. Otherwise I'd totally buy one for myself.

Little bit more information about the Areaware Grab Hand Hook:
Award-winning interior and industrial designer Harry Allen gives everyday objects a wry twist in his Reality series for Areaware. Need a hand? The eye-catching Grab Hand Hook is a superbly detailed cast of the designer's hand in resin. Easily wall-mountable, the Grab Hand Hook provides a resting place for soap, loose change, keys or any small items that could use a place of their own.
Designed by: Harry Allen, 2004
Features:
Made of resin
Wall-mountable
Fingers provide multiple hooks
Available in white
Overall Dimensions: 4" H x 5" W x 7"


All you have to do: leave here you e-mail and let me know: which is your your favourite product from CSN stores. There're thousands of products so it's probably hard to choose you favourite but just something you like. For example I love that Fauna Elephant Mini Cushion from Allmodern.com

deadline: 15th February
I'm going to use Random.org to pick up the winner.

Carnival

Last I really felt that I need to relax and best way for that was making a pair of earrings. I used two amazing porcelain masks which are bought from Venice. But I didn't have chance to take photographs of myself wearing the earrings at midnight so I used some models from the Vogue Italia.
