LONDON BABY! **
**If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know I’m currently glueing a tonne of rhinestones onto a pair of shoes. While doing this gargantuan mission, and there’ll be more on that in its own post when I’m done, I’ve been watching Friends in the background. It’s in my head. Following me around. Everywhere.
I love the way the fringe at the front of this dress crisscrosses. I don’t know if I’d necessarily do this on a dress, but I could see it on a really fun wrap top.
I used to be a dancer and love anything that reminds me of my pointe shoes. I think these would be as easy as glueing ribbon to a pair of shoes. I’d do black flats.
I’m in between on whether or not I like these shoes. Really, they’d be as simple as a belt glued on to a pump. The most adjustment you’d need to do is make sure the overlap of the belt- the end sticking out of the buckle after it’s done up- is trimmed in a way that looks intentional.
I like this sequin fringe moment. I’m not into the glam sporty look, but imagine the fringe in black on a black dress, or even in smokey quartz on a grey dress…
I like this look. I wouldn’t attempt adding that many grommets without a grommet tool, though hammering this many could definitely work out some demons. I always lose the belt to my trenches and I think something like this would be a great way to do something fun to a beltless coat.
I can’t figure out if these are rhinestones or some sort of metal bead. In any case, I like the way they’re sporadic but not spazzy. I’m also almost always all in for an embellished hat.
I LOVE the idea of adding rhinestones to a swishy pleated skirt. It’s gorgeous and elegant, but still subtle.
I’m really into the embellishment on this shoe. The bow on top of the tassel reminds me of something, but I can’t figure out what. In any case, it’s a really wow shoe.
I’ve tried many times to add a capped toe onto shoes. For whatever reason, I can never get it quite right. I like the idea of just throwing a knot over it- it’d definitely take the pressure off…
Kenzo had a faux fur trimmed jacket in their men’s show that this reminds me a bit of. I’m not sure if I like the collar showing or covered better, but I’m still pretty sure this could be done as a detachable thing- maybe even on the same tracks as the Kenzo inspiration? I do like the dressing gown vibe of this one quite a bit.
I love appliques and the way these have been applied and contrasted with the green coat is stunning. I’m officially on the lookout for a green jacket and black rose appliques.
I don’t think this would be too hard to make from scratch. All you’d need is a good fabric, velvet ribbon, and a dress that fits you well to trace. Personally, I’d avoid the overdramatic bustle and just do a shift dress.
Aside from the embellished pleats that seem to be everywhere this season, I also noticed the collar. I know way back they used to do detachable collars and I’m just sitting here wondering why that isn’t a thing anymore. Imagine wearing this collar one day, a rose gold version the next, and a sapphire one after. Detachable stuff is the WAY.
We all know I love sequins glued on things. I think this one is a really cute idea for a sweater or a cardigan. Also, if you did two rows of gems you might be able to cover a small stain.
I really like the leather and chain on this sweater. I think there’d have to be some way to detach it for laundering, maybe snaps? I think this is definitely DIY-able.
