put the X back into HEX

i got these funny creeper meets sneaker shoes at Savers yesterday - they're so wrong but i love them! got some other cool shit that i want to put up on the blog if i have time. i've been really shit lately, back at uni now, and it's already pretty hectic.

1. altered black/white stripe dress / pvc leggings from byron bay market / grandpa's crucifix / new weird shoes ps: you're going to have to deal with my paint splattered and dirty mirror because I can't quite get the self timer thing quite right.
3. like above / one of my favorite things ever: most amazing fuchsia pink oversized blazer.
4. back of the blazer customised with new 'sleeve holders' see below: 

sleeveholders

HOW GOOD ARE THESE!!!!!!! found them at this shop near uni that always has 50% off everything... with heaps of 80s deadstock. these were $1 for a pair so naturally i bought all pairs they had. besides being really good looking, they've solved some wardrobe problems

I was at Savers yesterday and found NOTHING! That never happens. Your shoes are amazing, I saw heaps like them in Tokyo, and wish I bought some, stupid dollar. I hear you about Uni, so hard to get back in the rhythm of things.

Ha! I have no idea what the normal function of a sleeve holder is, but I really like what you did with them!!

Loves it all.

Ha ha....i found similar things that you use to hold the cover on your ironing board and bought a bunch of them for customising.

Must use them on a blazer as it looks kick ass!

This is fucking genius. I wish you lived in London instead of Australia so that I could use you as a stylist or something. I get the impression that we wear a similar size, too, which is always a boon in a friend with great clothes (I might be a lot shorter, though. I always am.)
