DIY / Hairy Slippers


Last year i already made black leather slippers from this pair of Adidas slippers and after a year of wearing i thought it was time for a change. This time around i made them from real cow skin. I still had some left from my graduation project and used it for this new pair. Really love how it turned out!
Someone even asked me if they were 'CĂ©line's'..well no, but thanks for the compliment!
Such a fun and easy diy. Hope you like it!

Brand | Justine Clenquet


A few months ago i discovered this amazing Jewellery brand Justine Clenquet from Lille (north of France). It's been my favourite ever since! I bought this pair called Gloria Hoops and am truly in love with them.
All pieces from Justine Clenquet are handmade, which is wonderful, and they work with brass dipped in fine pale gold 24k, palladium and Swarovski Elements.
I love how it's a perfect mix between elegance, underground culture and a nostalgic hint of the nineties. Also good to mention, it's jewellery you wear for a long time and it's affordable!
You should really check out there collections!
I already have my eye on the Amy Earring of their 'New Generation' collection!

Selfmade | Leather Cut-Out Top With Transparent Straps

Selfmade | Leather Cut-Out Top With Transparent Straps
I made this cut-out top from Skai leather. I think you might have noticed that i use this leather for almost everything. I just love the texture and the stiffness.
I added transparent straps on the back and closed it with golden snap fasteners.

Selfmade | Wallet

Selfmade | Wallet
I think i've been already looking for more than 1 year for the right wallet, and i could never find one. They're always too expensive or just not what i'm looking for.
So eventually i decided to make my own. I always carry a lot of things in my wallet, so it needed to be a big one. I got inspired by a wallet from COS, and made my own version of it in light grey leather. It has one zipped coin pouch and 3 compartmens for cards and receipts. It also has a fold over front with a copper detail and a light grey elastic strap.

Thrift Shop Goodies

Usually when i go thrift shopping there are no shoes for me to be found. Because of my small feet, finding shoes in a thrift shop is very difficult. But this time i got lucky! I found these 90’s bold-heeled sandals, which i already had in mind for a long time, wishing i would find a pair like these.. never actually thought i would! And the best part of it, they were only €2,-!!
