Time to start my first sewing project. :)
Black ankle boots - first (and only?) sales purchase.
First manicure in months! Is it too late to jump on the cracked nail polish bandwagon?
Best Christmas present: my very own sewing machine!!
I get the feeling that my content will veer more and more into DIY territory…
Busy day at MODO SALES today.Thanks for coming!
See you tomorrow for OMSK and GIRLS FROM OMSK at cheaky prices!
I love Hallowe’en! It’s been one of my favourite holidays ever since I was little. Even now, this is one of the times of year that I adore. One thing I’ve done for the last several years is insist on homemade costumes. This year I decided that I was going to be a skeleton after watching the video Hallways by Islands.
I made an iron-on skeleton rib cage t-shirt and tulle skirt. I bought skeleton knee socks and added with some creepy face makeup (which is a pain to take off!!) I think I have a legitimate costume, no?
Sorry, no step-by-step guide for this one….
Even though the Brussels stock sale info has come through, I’m still waiting for the Antwerp hot list of designers that will be setting up their October stock sales. So far only Dries Van Noten has sent the invitation (on the same day as his Paris fashion show - well timed!)
Details below, when I get more info I will (of course) share!

That is the question that I’m asking myself about these shoes which I got for 10 EUR at a stocksale a few weeks back. Not sure!! They feel so perfect for spring-summer, but because we’re just entering autumn-winter, part of me wants to mask the floral print with either black or navy. If I take my time and do it properly I think it could look quite good, but I’m not convinced. Help!
I was just posting about a skirt on sale I got at the Petits Riens, on that same day I discovered this skirt in the 2.50 EUR bargain bin. At first I totally fell for the leopard print as it’s something that I’ve wanted to try out for a while and the originality of the cut. I glanced at the label (as you do) and saw…. it was Just Cavalli. For 2.50 EUR. NO WAY! Well I bet it wasn’t in my size, but couldn’t not try it on.
It was my size after all! (I take back all the negative things I’ve said about stretch denim!)
I took it to the counter all shiny and excited and the woman behind the counter said “oops, I thought I’d taken away all the designer stuff before we put up the sale stickers, this is 32 EUR.”
Devastated, but still determined that this was destiny, I replied “oh no, and I was so excited when I found it… what can I do?”
And in an instant she knocked the price to 16 EUR (half price!). So in the end, not 2.50, but still not bad. Might want to keep an eye on your own local Petits Riens, because I’m keeping a close eye on mine!!
