The 70’s Blouse

Let it be… let it be, LeT iT bE… Hehm.

If you like paisleys prints then I’m quite sure you’ll like this stuff too!

I designed this blouse two years ago now but I don’t grow tired with it. Not only because I spent three days long to stitch it but also because I love both colors and print. On the front I sewed a removable leather plastron so I can wash it easily, and there’s buttons along the reverse side.

Shopping psychology

The difference between a shop addict and a DIY addict -like me- is very simple.

1. She buys something that she LOVEs like it is and that she doesn’t need to improve or change. / I only buy something when I don’t LIKE it in its original state, and when I feel I can change it or turn it into something else.

2. She buys something when she feels THE high potential in it. / I buy when I directly see the “DIY potential” there’s in.

We have common points!

For example I bought this dress last year as I was in Berlin; a triangle ZARA dress. I HATE triangle dresses.

BUT…  I bought it because I already felt the DIY potential in it.

(Actually I only liked the empire flounces on the waist, its pink powder color. And the chiffon material).
