I just meant to show you what I'm busy working on (among other things) at the moment. I bought this beautiful crèpe de chine in black a while ago and once I'm finished with the beaded neckline, I'll turn it into a flowy, very very heavy neckholder-dress. I'm sure it's gonna look amazing. But sewing the beads to the fabric takes AGES! I've been working on this for 3 weeks now... and it's sure gonna be another 3 weeks. I sew every single bead to it by itself. It's one hell of a task :D
I'm also knitting at the moment and got some white lace waiting to be turned into a dress... but one after the other.
And yeah, let's have a laugh. I've been stealing my moms leather flats the other day, and I can't stop wearing them even if they make my feet look like those of Daisy Duck. They are the most comfortable shoes I have been wearing in my life, I can tell you that! I'm not sure I'm gonna give them back to her, although I'm sure she misses them already. And I sure wouldn't wear them out too much, either. If only all the pretty shoes in this world would be this friendly to my feet.

I feel winter approaching with huge steps - only not today when I intended to photograph the jumper I knitted lately. I was sweating like mad in this thing, because - even though it consists of nothing but holes (yeah, like my brain I know) - it keeps you perfectly warm! (Which is apparently not needed with an outside air temperature of about 20°C)
By the way, it's so sweet of you people asking why on earth would I sell my self-knitted and self-sewn stuff, but that's the point, innit. It's something I do in my free time, doing clothes. Since I didn't go to design-shool (which I did consider for a long time before I decided to study education) it's just something that's so much fun to do besides uni. And I can always do something I really like wearing again for myself, so of course I want to share my stuff with you guys and am always so happy when I find people that love wearing my stuff, too :) Otherwise, this flat would've exploded by now anyway.
I love nudes this season, it's really lovely to wear and it gives you this kind of positive attitude that an all-black outfit just can't. The Emma Cook for Topshop boots are just the perfect kind of finish for an (almost) only bright powdered look. And they're sooooo comfortable. I basically live in them these days.
Admittedly, though, I couldn't resist with the black tights, but I just couldn't pull off a pair of bright jeans with this outfit, it did look really quite ridiculous, haha.
I just discovered a pattern here - taking pics on friday, posting them in the middle of the night from friday to saturday... let's see how long I'll keep this up.
Have a great weekend everybody and good night!
[Excuse my hair on this one, a group of hands down real mad pigeons attacked me! Well, not quite, but it looks like it.]

Die Blätter fallen, fallen wie von
als welkten in den Himmeln ferne
sie fallen mit verneinender Gebärde.
Und in den Nächten fällt die schwere
aus allen Sternen in die Einsamkeit.
Wir alle fallen. Diese Hand da fällt.
Und sieh dir andre an: es ist in allen.
Und doch ist Einer, welcher dieses
unendlich sanft in seinen Händen hält.
This little Rilke poem just came to mind, sorry, can't translate it right now, too tired from work! I do remember now why I quit this job a year ago - being a waitress in that bloody business lunatic asylum is suicide! Glad it was only today and will be another day tomorrow - never again, I'm telling you, I'd rather be broke!
Before all that I still felt good and this is when we took these pics.
I'm wearing that biker leather jacket I told you about - now I'm not so sure I wanna sell it, except if you make me a real good price. But yeah, I'm really not sure, I kinda fell in love with it. I studded it with over 100 pyramid studs, can you believe it? My left index finger-fingernail turned blue from being hit with a hammer one too many times afterwards o.O
The dress I'm wearing is another one that I made myself. It's made from an XXL womens' skirt I got from my mom's friend. I love the way it shows a bare shoulder/back, BUT it's WAY too short, yet I love it so much that I keep on wearing it continuously(with denim shorts underneath so that no wind can turn this dress into an accident).
My oh my, summer's almost gone, I'll miss my little dresses!
Have a great saturday my lovelies! I'll jump to bed.
