the DIY scarf
Ok so I didn’t weave it, nor did I dye the threads myself, but the paint splatter pattern is all me! How to:
1. Buy an inexpensive navy pashmina scarf.
2. Trim away the tacky fringes.
3. Lay it out on the floor, and with a paintbrush dipped in thick white paint, drop swirly patterns on to the scarf from above. Make sure to line the scarf under with newspapers, if you don’t want to end up with a mottled driveway like mine.
4. Leave it out to dry, and it’s done!

same as above, but with Giordano Concepts jersey blazer and YSL tote
I got the bag for an obscenely low price during the YSL boutique closing sale in Manila. I don’t get much use out of it, but I still love it. Here’s a close-up:
