A day of androgyne

I just discovered these while cleaning out my Mac, and i thought why not post them since i promised to be more frequent on these streets in 2014 :P

A friend shot me on the streets of cape town on a random day after work. I was in the androgynous spirit that day, and i owned it from top to bottom including the hair... eek >_< (side note: everytime i see this haircut i want to go back. Its so bad!! but i have made such an effort growing it back i might regret it so alas)

This was also somewhat of a cold day to i layered up strategically

Thank You to Sandi for the beautiful shots always!

2014 Denim DIY

One of my fav things to do is DIY's, and sharing is caring, so here's what i did with one of my denim shorts a while back.

What i love about these is the colour, the length i made them and the print i added. its pretty simple to add any print to your denim, just buy fabric glue, or if you have trust issues and would rather make sure your fabric stays on then i would advise sewing it on. i hope my step by step picture tutorial is clear enough.

Have fun DIY'ng and Happy New Year beauties :)

i used: fabric glue, blade, paintbrust and a needle

 first i unraveled the bottom of my denims, the pockets in front and at the back, and the zip area. Any place really that will give it more detail, its your prerogative. i used a blade to cut of the stitchings and a pin to unravel. this is a very tedious task trust me, so be patient.

then i took my printed fabric pieces , cut them to fit in the areas i wanted and applied my fabric glue under and a coat over them

and voila!
