Proof that you can use almost anything to store your shiny pretties – this jewelry stand is just a wire rack (check out your local stationary store) nailed to the wall with a few hooks attached – perfect for storing the delicate gold pieces I’ve got a penchant for these days. Top it off with homemade crate shelves, a touch of foliage and a few pieces from your vintage camera collection and you’ve got the ultimate (hipster approved) bedroom nook.

Although you could definitely say I’m a fan of fashion and new season trends, I generally try to focus on creating DIYs that I think I’ll get a lot of wear out of. I know more than anyone that there’s nothing worse that making an item you don’t ever end up wearing! When I first started DIYing I used to make everything I liked regardless of how it fit into my wardrobe – but these days I tend to be a little more careful (related: culling). Because of that, I’ve been umming and ahhing about making one of these Balenciaga halo headbands for a while – although sooo pretty I wonder whether would I wear it (or would making one be more about the creative act itself?). In these situations I like to sit on an idea for a little while until I know for sure how it would integrate into my wardrobe – kind of like leaving a store for few hours before purchasing a pair of shoes so you don’t have buyers remorse. I would love to hear what you think – would you wear the halo?
On that note, a girl at fashion week in Sydney came up to me and told me I should make these, so there’s obviously a few of you out there that would totally rock the halo!

I’m excited to share with you a few images from the second half of the campaign we shot for my collection for Tony Bianco – a more relaxed, behind the scenes style look at the shoes and how I would wear them. Although I like to think of myself as fierce, stomping down the street style person (and some days that definitely is me), you’re probably more likely to find me at home in a comfortable pair of jeans and a nautical style top just hanging out. For that reason Marg and I shot this in between official takes to give you a few different ideas about how you could integrate these heels into your wardrobe. I hope you like!
If you haven’t already make sure you check out the collection here.
And don’t forget – although on the website shipping is currently only for Australia and New Zealand residents, the lovely Tony Bianco team has been organising shipping for those of you who simply must have a pair. Just email email@example.com with your shoe choice.
