Get ready to put some color in your hair. I know the color trend has been slowly creeping up from the ombre tips (blonde at the ends of your hair) to putting a very light pink on blonde hair. At LFW, I saw so many people with streaks of color in their hair (mainly green and pink) then on the shows I was surprised to find that there was also a lot of color. It could be also because model Charlotte Free (the one in most of the pictures) has pink hair but that means that the designers knowingly decided to have her in the show as she then was going to represent a part of their collection. So I guess its pink hair for the spring? I will definitely do this as it reminds me of when I did it in high school and thought I was really cool!

My DIY Jil Sander Market Bag. (for real this time)

Remember back in February when I did this post on a DIY  Jil Sander Market bag and it was just taking a plastic bag. Well today I saw an old woman carrying what looked like a floral fabric Jil Sander bag and I was instantly convinced I was going to make one! I remember seeing this post by Style Hurricane and went back to it for inspiration. I took some fabric  that I was going to use to make a skirt and made this bag using these instructions! It was actually super simple (besides a couple of fights with the sewing machine) and you can even sew it by hand. I might take style hurricane’s suggestion and make a leather one as well.  I will “model” this for you later when I can convince my bf to take a picture of me! What do you think?

DIY Isabel Marant Shorts!

So I had been obsessed with Isabel Marant’s moto style lace-up  shorts (seen below) and since I didn’t have the cash to shell out for those,  I was stoked when ASOS had some similar skinny jeans that I bought one size larger and cut into shorts! What do you think about them?

I paired them with a men’s River Island Knit jumper and French Connection Boots! Oh Yeah and thanks to the ever so lovely Ross @ Jones and Payne (London)  for blowdrying my hair isn’t it lovely!
