Day 265: Tuesday 19 January

I was given a gift last night. Something quite sensational and informative, sexy and educational, arty and crafty, denim and lace, country and rock’n’roll.

What is this incredible present? A book…

Somebody's Phd or just a denim fan? American Denim: A New Folk Art

Fattyboombsticks has been telling me, urging me to get into customising my denims. Get into it with a pair of scissors she says. Some of those jeans are horrible is another thing she says. After looking through this book I have been inspired. So many awesome approaches, although this book relies quite heavily on the appliqué/needle work styles.

Here’s a couple of examples that have inspired me at first read…

S'cuse the fingers, mind the bow-tie and the beard

Last year someone promised to make me a bow-tie. But did they? NO!!

A novel way to jazz up the interior of any denim jacket

Sexy lady cut-out looking sweet inside an appliquéd Levi’s jacket

Here’s one of my personal favorites, so inspirational…

Now THAT'S what I call a denim bikini

See HRH! This is what a denim bikini top SHOULD look like. I’m a gunna try and make me one. Off to the op shop I go…

And here’s today’s attire, especially modest after the spectacular images above…

Zombie style mango and yoghurt eating. Not sure I'm even alive in this photo

Top: Supre pale denim vest. Butchie dykie

Bottom: Spykar white jeans, wear’ em once and wash ’em

Accessory: To feminise this outfit I have chosen the Chanel handbag on loan all the way from Nettie in Melbourne. Nettie I never thanked you…

    Applique! Apply yourself my dear!
    The faded outfit looks hot to trot as well. I think we should glam up for Thursday night. Denim and lace style.
