CHIFFON + ART




Wearing: American Apparel Chiffon Top, DIY Skirt, Aldo Heels and Club Monaco Sunnies

Yesterday I woke up to a lovely surprise by fellower blogger & artist FAIIINT, aka Stephanie. She had a beautiful post about sharing the love and inspiration of other bloggers. I am honoured that she featured me on her blog, amongst other cool girls. Kind words. Check it out here

With that sense of sharing art and potential in mind, I decided to go shoot in this back alley. It has cool street art all over the walls. Support Art in any form, that's what I believe. I try to find inspiration everywhere; from high end streets to smelly back alleys like this.

 I was browsing through BlackSheep 's blog and I saw a cut off skirt she feautured. Since then, I have been looking around, trying to get my hands on one (it really speaks of my style and personality: minimalistic with some edge) but I couldn't find one anywhere...What is a girl to do? If you are anything like me, you won't rest until you have what you want. I went second hand shopping and found this white skirt for $6 bucks; a pair of scissors, some sewing, and voila my own budget version. I love it! I paired it with my latest purchase from American Apparel, their chiffon crop top.
