The Perfect Combo


Pleather Bag - DIY / Sunglasses - Ebay / Faceless Watch - Thrifted / Shirt - H&M / Collar - c/o Eleven Objects
Song: Metronomy - The Bay


Sometimes the most unexpected pieces become staples in your wardrobe. An electric yellow leather detachable collar seems like something that wouldn't integrate into your closet, but it just works perfectly. Same goes for the faceless watch. I've blogged about it on here years ago and it always manages to make its way back onto my wrist. As for the bag? If you follow me on Twitter you may have heard me mentioning DIYing a bag which ended up stinking. Oooooooh, the troubles of secondhand fabric. Well, this is the infamous stinky bag. I DIYed a much larger version a few months ago but I figured it might be nice in a smaller size. Guess I'll have to Fabreze it to death and hope that helps.
The music is simple. A nice, feel-good song for the spring. It's been on my iPod for months but it finally seems appropriate to listen to. Makes me get excited for drinks on patios and poolside cocktails. Or just drinking in a back ally on a summer evening. Basically I'm just ready for warm weather & the inevitable drinking it will bring.

Happy Spring...ish!!

Fuck this, I've missed TWO of your posts? You've been posting more often, have you? Yesss. I love detachable collars. I'm still trying to figure out more ways to DIY 'em. How's the song called? I really like it, tho I don't really agree with you on how it is a summer song. It kind of reminds me of melancholic nights on the rooftop in Brooklyn in autumn. O wait, that's summer. Hm.
