Les fleurs du mal.


A while ago, I got inspired by this whole silver heel/wedge thing, so I thought why not just take one of my favourite pair of heels and create a silver platform and heel myself? I just bought some silver tape, cut it to the right width and stuck it to the heel. It’s really lovely and didn’t fall off until this day.

[heels: Marni, dress: H&M, bracelet: vintage]

A few notes on the side:

1) Excuse the crappy photography, the weekend is near and that means quality pictures taken by my talented photographer Isabelle will be up here again very soon!
2) I spent the afternoon upgrading and uploading this new layout. I wanted something clean but more structured than before, plus I was sick of two sidebars, so here we go – I love it!
3) Can you imagine, a little (okay, maybe a little more) bit of icy streets in the morning and the public transport system in HI completely collapses for a whole day?! Jesus Christ I couldn’t believe it!
4) It’s my mom’s birthday on sunday (the 7th), hopefully that means looaaads of cake!
5) It’s Valentine’s Day, soon (the 14th), what are you gonna do for your favourite person that day? Roses, cake, a walk in the zoo, to a restaurant, to the movies? Anything at all? Nothing at all?
6) Exam-time is almost here, uaahhhh beware!
7) LOST, season 6 starts this week – I’m excited!

See you all hopefully on friday, perhaps saturday!

PS.: I love lace, especially hanging in front of my window.

    Ahh, the shoes look gorgeous with the silver on, I don’t currently own any platforms at all (I know! Madness!) so I can’t try it out myself, unfortunately.

    I love the lace on your window too! Here in Japan, we should give gift to men on the 14th. It’s not gonna be mutual.

    Great idea with the silver tape! How long have we waited until a highstreet knockoff version of Chloe’s metal heels to come out! (None that has come out ever satisfied me yet :P)

    I love the new layout! And even though your photographer was gone, I like the silhouette and negative space in your bottom photo. Love it! I am following you via bloglovin and I would be honored if you followed me!

    Stay creative,

    I totally had the same idea! I was also thinking of using the neon tape from hardware stores. Alas, I am so bad with following through with my diys, I put procrastinators to shame. I will try to remember to buy some of that crazy neon tape the next time I come upon them. BTW, where do you find silver tape?

    Teresa: I found that silver tape in a 1€-Shop, haha. It’s really more like thick aluminum foil with a sticky side.
