July: month of accessoires and DIY

Accessoires.....
Who can have enough of them?????
This month I bought far to much....

I finally got my 'long-wanted' bag!
First I got it and I was soo happy! But inside there was a magnet protection so I called the webshop.
They said I could send it back for free, but the people at the post office said I must pay.
So after 3 weeks of calling to the webshop and cycling to and from the post office the bag was finally really mine!

The earrings I got from Jutka and Riska (€4) (see  Haarlem, vintage shop city! ), the necklace from Sacha (€2) and the earbuttons from H&M (€3).


(bracelet from Wibra (€2) and ring from H&M) 


Love my leopard glasses:):)


Yesterday I was in a very creative mood.
The're a lot of accessoires I really want but just can't find in a store.
So I decided to make them myself:)
And I must say it worked well:)

It's so easy to make lovely things yourelf IF you have the right materials.
AND
DIY is sooo much more fun!

The necklace is made of Fimo clay, like the crosses, the clock and the camée.
Fimo is very easy to use. You only must watch out for mixing the two or three colours together while you're shaping it. After shaping you put it in an oven for a half an hour and VOILA!
I'm especially proud on my camée. It took me 2 and a half hour to make it....


The bracelet is made of rope and nuts.
You just braid the nuts into the rope.
It's so simple and the result is amazing!
   

The rings could be easily made if you have these 'plated rings' and super glue.
You can buy these rings in a hobbyshop or on etsy.com


Now I'm working on cute shoulder pads with fringe, a chain body and a XL skirt in see-through black fabric. I can't wait to show you the results:) 



I hope I've inspired you all!!!
Have fun with your own DIY projects!

FlopShop


Just imagine you are a young beginning photographer.
You shoot some editorials and place them on your own website.
You've got your own style and other people love your work.
Your friends place your pictures on their fashion blogs.

And suddenly you find your picture on a t-shirt of a worldwide store.
How would you react?
Would you be happy that they used your picture?
or
Would you be mad because they stole it from you?

This story happened to Landa Penders.
This is what she says:
 
"At first I really thought it was a compliment that they used my picture on a t-shirt of Topman by Topshop. Awesome! But after thinking about it some more, I realized I’ve become just another victim of the enormous mass consumption society that we live in. Large fashion chains claim that they’re anticipating on the latest fashion trends and they fire their clothes in huge amounts on their target groups. It’s all about increasing sales and the passion for fashion is irrelevant to them. After researching about this I stumbled upon multiple examples of shops like Topshop, H&M, ZARA, New Look etc. that violate the copyright of independent designers. They trace and draw works of others, change a few little details, but they lack originality and do not have a vision they want to share, like the original designer has. Then they just sell it on the shelves of their shops and no one will hear of the person who actually spent hours and hours on the original works."




Landa started the project FLOPSHOP.
With this project she want to raise awareness of the mass production of clothes.
It must not be normal to just copy and steal pictures or designs from less known designers.
Do you steal anything from a store?
No.
And if you're buying clothes you trust that their makers are original.  

FLOPSHOP stands for all the fashion chains that design, produce and sell their fashion without passion. It is time for originality, quality and honesty.”
Landa Penders also made an editorial to illustrate the protest.



I think Landa has done a great job in creating this project.
And I also her editorial is amazing. 

So now it's time for us (and all the other victims of this mass consumption) to stand up.
To spread the word.
If you want to know more about this project just go to:
If you want to place this on your own blog you can mail Landa for the mediakit.
