I.










My brain has officially been fried. ugehjfed. One day of studying to go.


All the Amsterdam students are cursing the weather right now - while the end of examination period is drawing near, the sun has chosen to just wander off to the other side of the planet. But it's a nice moment to show these pictures - could've been easily taken today.

Sadly enough I didn't take the effort to take some effin' pictures of the damn thing before I cut it up to shreds, but this waistcoat used to be a floor-tipping trenchcoat! It was hideous! But only 2 euros! I cut it! And I sewed it! Into a waistcoat! Yeaaa

It seemed like a good idea at the time (and not so much of an investment - sometimes I look at certain DIYs in horror, seeing girls cut/bleach/paint the most expensive pieces of clothings.. How do they even DARE to put a pair of scissors in a pair of jeans that's worth a month of grocery shopping?! I'd die).. But eventually it took me almost a year to finish it. It took me 3 minutes to cut off the sleeves, and a quadrillion of hours to fix up my disastrous way of cutting it up.. Anyway, here's the result. My sister affectionally told me it looked like I was going on a fishing trip.... Thanks, thanks a lot. :'(  (She is a little bit right though. But I am not going to let all my hard work go to waste and try some outfits with it!) 

Wearing DIY waistcoat, thrifted men's shirt, ye olde H&M woolen trenchcoat, PIECES Aztec print scarf, can't remember where I got the boots from. Get similiar boots (enkellaarzen) here, Ash has some good ones.
