Cream studded bow beret: Forever 21 DIY-ed by Kani
Stripey crop jumper: Cotton On Body
Black skinny jeans: Forever 21
Floral sneakers: Rubi Shoes
Assorted bracelets: Diva
Tapestry backpack: Vintage/Thrifted
I am in love with this tapestry backpack. If you’ve seen the little tapestry sling purse I have worn in previous posts.. guess what? IT’S THE SAME PATTERN. Yeah! I was so excited when I saw this bag in a op shop (you Americans probably call them thrift shops) far far away from my house.. it was literally like finding treasure! I always wanted a spunky backpack for school.. actually I wanted a tan leather one (& still do!), however I would never have imagined to find a tapestry one! In tip top condition too! I used it quite a bit during the summer months of uni, but lately it’s just been sitting on my hat stand as it doesn’t really go with my winter coats! I also have a little black backpack which I shall show you soon!
I was inspired by Forever New to make this studded bow beret. I made one for my friend too because we both have the same beret from Forever 21 and it seemed to be a bit of a lost cause without anything to spice it up. Anyways all this studding has gotten me excited and I’ve drawn all these other beret designs in my notebook which I want to create! (Sorry Forever New for copying your studded bow idea!) Too bad I haven’t got anymore berets willing to have a makeover :( As you have probably realised I have a thing for headwear – headbands, hats, etc. Decorating berets remind me very closely to decorating headbands – the designs on both somewhat overlap/can be transferable – this is getting me very exciting as I’m planning to spend my 3 week holiday coming up soon making things!! Maybe if all goes well I’ll sell a couple too :D
Lastly, I was one of the five winners of the April Dotti Nation competition! It’s basically a style competition on the Dotti website (A chain store in Australia) and yeah! There’s a new prize every month :D I received in the mail 4 double passes to Letters of Juliet :D:D It’s been a while since I’ve won a competition!
PS. This was very frustrating to post because some guy came to install Foxtel and my dad didn’t tell me that he was going to disconnect the Internet so I’ve had to type up this post twice now >=( I couldn’t even save the draft from before because I didn’t even know the Internet was down until I finished typing! Oh well. Foxtel better be worth it! Apparently there’s a channel dedicated to fashion?!
