DIY; Last minute - New Years Outfit

The year is almost over and done, so I leave you with a last minute DIY, that serves as a nice budget friendly new years outfit. I'm going crazy for fringe at the moment. I got this glittery black and silver fringe at the fabric store, anything else you need is a simple stretchy black (or any color you like) cotton skirt (try "this" one). 
You could go for either 1 layer or 2 (or more) for a fuller effect. Just keep in mind that the fringe band won't stretch with and needs to fit around your hips.
 It's awesome to dance in!! 
Hope everybody has a great NYE! and I wish you all a wonderful, fashionable upcoming year!

Outfit Post; DIY Leather Sleeve Sweater

On the second day of Christmas we went for a stroll in the "central park" of Amsterdam a.k.a. Vondel park. I'm so happy I live 5 minutes away from the park. 
I made this sweater on christmas morning. Perfect pass time for the holidays sitting inside, crafting/DIYing! The holidays were relaxing, at night we had some friends come over for left over snacks and a drink (or 2). 
My Christmas present, mini Diana Lomography camera and my DIY Starbucks travel mug (I re-used wrapping paper to make my xmas mug)

Outfit Inspiration; White Button-down & Jeans

Just a little something that inspires me. A white button-down and jeans must be classics, it's always chic. throw on awesome heels and a nice clutch and your good to go! It works with a wider trouser jeans to skinnies. Roll them up, rolled down, I love, love, love it! I personally won a Primark gift certificate with a look like this (remember "this post-Classic with a twist"). What do you think, how would you pull it off?

Outfit Post; Family visit

 Outfit post from last week. I chose for a flowy top and skinnies (to know when you should stop eating) and a flowy cardigan (that I could wrap around if it got chilly). I went to visit my family for "pre-Christmas" quality time. First to my one aunt for lunch and after to my uncle, aunt and kids for dinner. We got spoiled with food and had a good time. Hope everybody had a wonderful Chrismas weekend.
