I made this skirt 2 days ago and I must say that I absolutely adore it! First I made a A4 lay out of swallows in Photoshop and printed them on transfer paper. Then I cut them out piece by piece and ironed them on my beige/ gold H&M skirt that was laying around in my closet for 3 years now. I think the black birds look really good on the beige.
I wore the skirt today and combined them with my vintage boyfriend blazer, Sonia Rykiel wedges and Chanel bag.

Furthermore, I am happy to say that I am one of the ten finalists for the Fresh Cotton Style Contest! Thank you all for voting for me! This weekend I have to style an item from Daryl van Wouw for a photoshoot , I am so excited!! I really want to win the styling contract they are giving away!

  37. This type of blogs is very recreational, call attention because of them you always learn something useful and not as in other blogs that are a waste of time and learn nothing.Congratulations for this blog and hopefully they are more like this, I regret to say that I've only found the Generic Viagra and this with the material of common interest!
