charged all the people a dollar and a half just to see em

Last night I sewed up the lips on my shirt since it really just looked like a hole and I didn't know how to make it work. Just some ribbons and ruffles. Snip snip here, snip snip there, and a couple of tralalas...all that jazz.
In order to be in ~COMPLETE AND TOTAL Rei mode~ today I wore it with these Tao-ish boots and polka dot skirt and the CDG x H&M tuxedo blazer (I say the because tis holy. I say tis to emphasize its holiness, and I italicize my words to feel superior). This CDG shirt below I can't seem to find on style.com but the picture was enough to convince me to pin one of my own gloves to my shirt today as well (obviously not well enough seeing as it's falling slightly...)
How ANNOYING are those dumb twigs? Poking in all innocently, stealing my focus. Now now Twigs, you know better than that. Have some courtesy! Some tact! Don't take away attention from my levitating.
I breathed on the camera lens when I took this picture. It was blurry from the snow (yes! It snowed again!) and fog in the other pictures, too.

H&M skirt (thrifted) and tights. Comme des Garcons for H&M blazer. thrifted boots. DIY shirts.

This creation is fantastic. Perfect with the long lines from the oversized black jacket.

Melissa said...

I've been thinking about leaving comments before but I'm too lazy. I like your blog a lot. However, the first thing I thought of when I saw the sewn up lips was "that kind of looks like a vagina."

M said...

I like the adding of the glove! =) Nice instant d.i.y. for the real thing. =)

lopi said...

Love it! Hey, you could try stuffing the glove with some cotton wool or pillow stuffing, to make it look more real. And spooky!

That may be the single greatest DIY EVAR. Please teach me the wisdom of your ways, Sensei.
