So the tie-dying continues but actually this time its dip-dying. Worked out rather well although it was a pain in the ass trying to wash the dye out without it staining the rest of the tee thus destroying said dip-dye effect. I like how it didn't die the thread and I realise I should know why due to that 12 week textiles class in first year but since I fell asleep within the first 5 minutes of every class, the reason escapes me.

Now that that brief period of our summer is over, I'll be back to dip-dye/spike more of my's so cool it hurts....

Jeffery Campbell Eat Your Heart Out

So I had a pair of shoes that were a bit too high class and elegant for me left over from the VOWS ceremony in November. Having decided the only thing for them was to spike them up and make them look slightly cool, I spent my hangover Sunday doing just that. They look kinda lethal and turns out they are. My Dad asked if they were some kind of protection device for going out whereas my younger brother told me if I'm not careful, I'll become an emo........maybe one day.

And this is how my summer shall be spent....spiking and dyeing things, using Linda Evangelista's face to photography them on. Timmins would be proud.

Love Love.

Tie-Dye Jumper

I have been eBaying my life away the past week. Mainly due to work not giving me enough hours and realising I still have a massive credit card bill to pay off. On another note why is it we insist on treating ourselves once we've paid off a bit of it? By adding more back on??? So I have actually managed to sell a few things, one pair of shoes went to Latvia for someones girlfriend (I don't really want to know whether he's actually a tranvestite or a pimp), and the rest have been dotted about the country. Have subsquently raided everyone else's wardrobes to continue making my fortune.

I made this jumper though during the Easter break. Initially I was going to stud the collar and cuffs til I realised they weighed down on it too much and the shape was lost. Then I was going to bleach it white with tie-dye til I got bored waiting for it so its now lilac which I actually prefer. Still smells of bleach though....

Hey Kids,
So long time no blog I know, but I have been hard at work finishing off second year at Uni and then after that I don't really have an excuse. This is a look I wore towards the end of last semester on another succesful night out in Gala. It was the Take Me Out event that happened at the Students Union and also featured on which is another really cool blogger to come from Galashiels. I recommend!
