From Berlin with Love


The first DIY project on this blog has been inspired by a Nasty Gal skirt I recently fell in love with. I liked the idea of having a pattern made up of little illustrations, but wanted to mix it up. Instead, I’m getting inspired by a love of street art and a love of Berlin. I’ll be using images of stencil graffiti in one of the most beautiful cities in the world to create a totally unique pattern on a thrift store buy. All you’ll need is a printer, an X-Acto knife, a white skirt, and some black fabric spray paint. The finished product will be urban and artsy. Stay tuned within the next week to see it uploaded with full instructions.

Meet Me in Berlin

Guess where I am right now! Berlin. By the way, that’s why I haven’t been updating recently. Busy in Berlin. I’ve been visiting all the sights, but my favorite part is the street art. The city is covered with it. Up top is a picture of some street art by El Bocho, a well-known artist throughout Berlin. The only downside to the trip is that I’m leaving, literally, a day before Fashion Week… I guess that’s bad planning on my part. Kinda ironic, right?
