DIY: brand prints

Here's my first photographed DIY!
I was always watching photos on tumblr of girls with chanel melty logo tees and I loved it, I think it's very cute, so I decided to make one by myself and I by the way, I created a YSL one too.
So there you have how I made them and how they look. You can do it with any logo or draw you want.
The first step is to print the image you want to impress, but it could be drawn directly on the cardboard.

This is what you will need:
a cardboard with the logo you want to recreate, scissors or a cutter, a piece of paperboard, acrilic paint in the color you choose, a container for the paint, a brush, a sponge and of course the tshirt!

First, you want to cut off the drawing you will print. Don't cut it all if there is any small pieces floating on the drawing because they will fall out! Keep some pieces between the painting parts to keep it like one only piece. I think this is the most difficul step so take it easy.


After cutting it off, you can place the cardboard on the sweater. Do this with the tshirt on so you can see where it actually is and then take it off and stick it all with tape, as it is in the next photo.
Put a piece of paperboard, at least as big as the logo, into the tshirt for avoiding the paint to transfer to the back. After this, you can paint it right with a brush, but I prefer to do with a sponge because it will be easier to hold the paper while we're painting and to avoid go out the edges. Also, it's faster to paint with the sponge. You can put some paint on a container and stick the sponge into it a few times so there won't be any paint excess on the shirt.
You will maybe need from one to four coats of paint depending on the fabric and the color.
Once you are satisfied with it, you need to wait until the paint is dry, then you can remove the logo cardboard.

This is how it will look like. As you can see, there are some unwanted marks for the spots left uncutted for keeping the logo as one piece, that's ok, now is the moment to use the brush for filling them and correct any lines if needed.

And voilá! Here's the new personalized jumper! Wait until it's dry to remove the paperboard from it.

Here are the two tshirts I made.

And good news, you can always reuse the cut off logo if you're careful with the paperboard.
Here's another melty chanel tee I made for a friend.

I hope you like it and I hope it was helpfull :)

OOTD: Suit down

I've been loving these suit-like trousers lately, they dress up any outfit, but I can still wear them very casual. Yesterday it was a very sunny day, so I took the opportunity to take pictures in a beautiful park next to my home to celebrate that I could go out with no jacket! I don't like the sun that much, but it's pretty sad to feel it's winter in the midle of june... Maybe the summer is finally here, maybe tomorrow it'll be raining, who knows! We'll see haha

Shoe unboxing: Jeffrey Campbell Freda

Finally, I decided to buy a pair of the lovely Fredas ♥ 
I wasn't sure about these at first, but then I started to watch how LA's blog, Countess du blush or Olivia Emily rock them and I kind of started to have a crush on them.

First I ordered the taupe ones, because there wasn't my size in black at the store I bought them... 

I prefered them in black a little bit more, but I liked the taupe too, so they arrived... But they were too big for me, which I can't understand because it was the same size that my litas are.
Anyhow, I had to return them. I hate when this happens!

But, of course, I re-order them in black! Oh God, how I love them, they are so much beautiful in person (they look a little dirty in some of these pics, but that's because some strange effect of the flash). The box was slightly broken, but, you know, I'd prefer it in better conditions, but it's just a box.
So here they are!

I'm very happy to finally get them, I loooove them and I can't wait to wear them :)

Wish list: summer edition

1 Lita mint by Jeffrey Campbell
2 Foxy teal by Jeffrey Campbell

I've been loving mint colour lately, as you can see. And of course I've been loving Jeffrey Campbells, but that's not new. I'm in love specially with mint Litas, they're so cute. Also, I'm falling in love with this kind of strappy heels, you can find them everywhere. It's a good piece to dress up any outfit, I like them a lot with boyfriend jeans and sweaters, that's a chic cute combination and still casual. And what can I say about Fredas... after my inconditional obssession with every Lita in the JC world (I only own a black pair, I'm affraid) I'm starting to be into the Fredas too.

I want too many things... The summery dresses drive me crazy, too many! Too cute! The black bag it's a need, though, all my black everyday purses are falling apart. Where beauty lies, a little random book, but a must have in my summer wishlist, the first book of Elle & Blair was very cute and this looks like a summer essential to me, it's allways good to read a just for fun book from time to time.
