I was supposed to post this a day ago, but rearranging the apartment kinda took all my time :D
Today, we were picking up some friends from the railway station, and I tried to dress nicely even though I didn't (after all) have any time to do my hair. I blame that completely on sewing, it took more time than I thought... :D
We were a bit early in the station, so I thought I'd get some photos so that I could make a decent post for you guys. ;) This is very casual, not even having proper accessories. (yep, I was indeed cleaning again today...)
Outfit of the Day
"always stay positive" :D
Does somebody have any clue what I was explaining here?
...neither do I.
Tried to get a good pic from the make-up, but that didn't quite work out for me... :D
Jacket: H&M, Top: H&M, Jeans: Auposen (Fiorella), Boots: Kenkä Cosmos, Bag: Tunnelin kenkä (= Tunnel's Shoe), Scarf: made by me.
Those jeans... <3 I totally love, love, love them. They're age-old, have been repaired more times than I dare to admit, but they still rock my world. My lucky jeans, my "full confidence" jeans. I always feel pretty wearing these, no matter how many times they've been fixed. As long as they somehow stay in one piece, I'm wearing them. :)
Apart from the jeans, I was sewing these:
I finally found great tablecloth fabrics, they're as close to perfection as I can get at the moment. I made four tablecloths, and I try to get some photos of how they look as soon as I can. :)
Then, something that would've gone to yesterday's post (if I'd written one):
Manicure of the Day
I was trying this cool three-coloured manicure on my nails. You'll see from the pics it was the first time ever I made it, but the funny thing is, that the first nail I painted came out perfectly. The others... not so much. But I hope this is inspiring even though my skills aren't that impressive yet.
Step 1: Take straight manicure tapes (one for each nail), and apply them on nails. You can do it straight, or the way I did it, which to me looks cooler. Apply grey polish (I used a matte shade from Depend) to the cuticle side.
Step 2: Take the tapes off. Apply a yellow nail polish (again using Depend, it's a neon yellow) to the rest of the nail.
Step 3: Take a black nail polish with a thin brush, and apply a thin black line to the meeting edge of the other two colours.
The result should look like this (mine was so much messier, but I trust you to know how to do this better :D) It might be recommendable to apply two coats of the two lighter colours, so that they come off more vibrante. Try it out, it's cool.
Lastly, a little thing concerning the necklace giveaway that's on still few days.
