I have been wanting new business cards for a while now but was a mulling over how and where I wanted to get them from for so long. I finally made up my mind and ordered these from Moo. I have chosen six vintage pictures of women that I consider style icons and on the reverse are my details on a pink background. They are very sturdy and look amazing in person. I love the rounded corners! what do you think?
*Women: (clockwise: top left) Brigitte Bardot, Anna Karina, Brigitte Bardot, Liz Taylor as Cleopatra, Maria Felix, and Jane Birkin.
A couple months ago my friend Diana (again ; p ) brought me this purse that she found from an antique seller and she said it was vintage Chanel. After examining it carefully; it’s not leather and the details are a bit scratchy, there is no label on the inside (and doesn’t seem there ever was) and the lining is made from synthetic Leather. I still really liked the shape and style of the purse but then I generally don’t like fakes. I rather it be a no name bag that looks very similar than a fake. Although then I can start getting really complicated and ask questions like: if its made exactly the same, with the same quality materials, and looks identical is it still a fake? What does fake even mean? What is real? You see the problem is that it would spur all of these philosophical never ending questions so I just find it easier not to even think about them.
Here is my compromise, I decided to write faux (french for ‘fake’) on the bag because I thought it would make some sort of statement about authorship and answer all of the questions without really answering anything at all. Anyway enough babble.
- a ‘fake’ designer bag (or real if you are daring enough, think of the questions that would spur)
- a permanent marker
- a plastic ziplock bag
1)Use the bag to write ‘faux’ or ‘fake’ in the style that you like.
2)Place the bag on the purse to decide which position you want it in.
3) Write It on their. I wrote it free hand but you can outline it with pencil, use a stencil or have a friend do it.
TAH DAH! What do you think? About the bag? About the writing about life?
Want some more Cheapchicobsession? How about some INSTANT gratification? Lol Okay I just had to I know I’m a dork sometimes and its not exactly funny! Anyway in case you do want to follow me I am @misscheapchic (like my twitter). What are your Instagram names?
Ever since seeing these shorts on the runway I thought ‘I need to make those.’ They remind me of these little indian prayer flags my friend Diana brought me from India. Also it doesn’t hurt that I love denim shorts and it’s always cool to find new ways of wearing them. AND I know a lot of you are tired of hearing about Coachella but they are cool shorts to wear to a festival too!….
What you need:
1) Use needles to pin the pom pom to the denim.
2) It should look like this.
3) After you’ve threaded the needle begin to sew the pom pom to the denim diagonally. (I’ve used black thread so you can see how I’ve sewed it.
4) Tah dah! You are done. If you want add the multicolored ones go ahead. You can also add a belly dance chain to make it look cooler!
This is how they look. Sorry about the crap quality of the photo but I took it with my computer since there was nobody home and I couldn’t find my tripod! What do you think? To be quite honest I made these with wishful thinking since its been raining in London and looks like it will be raining for the next few days (sad face).
