Hello Everyone!!! we’re having a stormy week here in my little island, but I hope you’re all having super fun summer and catching sun rays everywhere, or at least trying to dance in the rain if you’re having erratic weather like we have here. Lol *joyful emoji*
With tattoo choker re-emerging into the fashion world straight from the 90’s, gracing celebrity necks everywhere, I was inspired to make my own version from scraps earlier (rain makes slow days at shop)
But first let me mention that I got the basic black version yesterday from El Nido, which I upgraded with a little heart pendant.
I’ve been saving the little heart, which was originally attached to a fancy nail clipper, after my sister gave it to me a few months ago knowing that i’m a sucker for cute and quirky little pieces. 😁
But on to the lace one,
While browsing through images in Google, I was inspired by the lace tattoo chokers. They’re gorgeous and adds an edge to simple tops or put a rad vibe on summer outfit, also as an interesting piece to anchor color mismatch get-up.
So, with rain raging outside, I tried to dig in on my closet and find the rest of cloth scraps left from my dreamcatcher-making madness days. Ha ha yes, it’s right to conclude now that i’m not only creative, i’m also a hoarder. The worst kind. Lol
Anyway I found an old tattered piece of lace cloth with the most perfect design i was hoping for.
I carefully detached the flowery detail using the tip of a cutter.
Luck of all luck, I also found a cute little button to serve as “lock” for the re-purposed flower design.
Sew it on the other end, and create a small hole on the other.
My basic tattoo choker, now with heart pendant and my new purple flowery lace choker! *happy dance* ready to rock despite the rain. Lol very happy heart emoji. 💓💓💓
For a badass chick look, try it with wine-shade lippy.
Carle Diem! ☆♡
Your Island Girl 💋
