Sweet As Candy flower crown – second hand jumpsuit – H&M belt – eBay sandals – Romwe sunnies
Last fall I spotted this jumpsuit in Wasteland here in Copenhagen and kept coming back to look and fall more and more in love with it. I never got around to actually buying it since I had temporarily banned myself from shopping, but the bubblegum blue color was just so appealing and it fit like it was made for me. Anyway, Sofie started working in Wasteland and kept an eye on it for me. One day after a sleepover I stayed at Sofie’s while she was at work, and when she came home she told me that she had both good and bad news for me. I asked to hear the bad news first and she told me that my jumpsuit was gone. I can imagine the sadness on my face that stayed for a few seconds until Sofie continued: but the good news is, that I bought it for you! I was in awe. It was one of the sweetest gifts I had ever received and for that reason this piece of clothing is so precious to me.
Last week I received these white plastic sandals in the mail. I have been slightly obsessed with chunky shoes, especially in white, and since I needed a practical and causal pair for every day wear I decided to go with these juju jellies-looking ones from eBay. The kitchyness of them really appeals to me, but the crisp white color takes them away from that 90’s feel you got from wearing similar ones as a kid and make them look more modern. They have been super comfortable to walk around in, but I’m afraid they wont survive Roskilde Festival, so it’s a good thing they are more than affordable on eBay. I might just have to grab a pair in black too. And maybe pale pink.. with glitter.
Here’s a fun, little DIY project that I wanted to share with you guys. I’ve always had a thing for The Flintstones and that whole cavewoman look
, especially if it’s in a more cartoon-ish and not so serious way. Kinda like Jeremy Scott’s SS10 collection
, which was just perfect. Anyway, something about brown beads and nylon string kinda offends me, so here’s a quick DIY on how to turn cheap halloween jewelry into actual, wearable accessories (if you’re into this sort of style, of course!)
Remove the nylon string from the face of earth and paint the brown beads black with your magic marker. They will need to dry for a bit, otherwise they can stain the plastic bones. And well, your fingers. I used a bobby pin to hold the beads so my hands wouldn’t get all black and magic marker-y.
Arrange the bones and the beads nicely – meaning turn the bones the right way, so the ”made in China” logo won’t show, since this was obviously too big a job for the manufacturer to handle themselves – and also take one long bone from one of the bracelets that comes with the jewelry set and put in on the chain.
And there you have it. Your very own, very fancy bone necklace. Perfect for.. Well, people who’s into kitchy things and may or may not be cavewoman/stoneage/Flintstones obsessed. I’m saving the rest of the extra bones for future DIY’s and also use the earrings that come with the set for everyday wear
– all I did to those was changing them from clip-on earrings to having a hook. So much more comfortable now that they don’t squeeze my poor ears.
I may or may not have gone a bit overboard with my eBay and etsy shopping lately, but I have very valid excuses for once. Also it’s been forever since I did one of these eBay shopping updates, so I thought now would be a good time to start again. I’ve tried to link to everything, but since some of these items – like the Jeffrey Campbell shoes and Wildfox clothing – were one of a kind items I won, I’ve just linked you guys to the specific sellers.
I’ve officially banned myself from shopping until next month, cause we really just can’t risk becoming eBay addicts, right? So my watch-list is getting longer and longer and in reality I should just log off the internet so I won’t be tempted. Did you guys find any interesting treasures on eBay lately?
