Chloé’s Fall 2010 gold embroidered, part mariachi-part cowboy denim pants were our inspiration for this week’s DIY. Such elaborate embroidering is beyond our skill set, so we figured stenciling a beautiful pattern using gold fabric paint would be a more feasible interpretation. Who knew paper doilies made the perfect stencil?
Lauren and I instantly fell in love with artist Rolando Robinson‘s origami art, particularly his Follicle Girlsseries. His initial concept was inspired by artist Shen Plum and one of her bright eyed, long haired characters, as well as the artwork of Fifi Lapin. And what started out as drawings of heads joined together by massive amounts of hair eventually became 3 dimensional body forms donning delectable origami clothing. The end result is an imaginative, intricate and stunning work of art, created in the pages of his Moleskin journal. We can’t wait to see more from Rolando and what the Follicle Girls will be wearing next.
This vintage photo inspired our search for knit headbands and we found a steal that was impossible to pass up. Jennifer Behr‘s knit turban headband is fabulous but at $162, but you can get Asos‘ version for less than $14 and still save after buying them in all three colors.
