My ever present outfit inspiration is music and
mix and match seemingly un-matchable matches-
police uniform(hat),love for anything car and race car related-
the metal plates on my harness),steam punk (the shoes) and
2 frilly dresses worn on top of each other with jacket on top of all that.
It all started with staple in my music library-THE 80’S and
Falco’s song ”DER COMMISSAR
German police hat
Thus the vintage German police hat.
Alles klar herr kommissar
Then came my latest collectible -2 vintage metal plates with insignia from a real ANWB car (road assistance abreviation in Holland)
I made a harness from 2 belts and suspenders and then saw the metal plates in front.
Steampunk meets German police meets Road assistance(ANWB)
Then came the shoes-metal,tweed and leather steampunk style.
Front and back side of my harness with collectible plates
I also added vintage metal ”grapes”looking belt-just because.
Aaa, THE 80’s…
Love,love ,love wearing collectibles.
Hope I inspired you to take yours from their dusty cabinets or mantelpieces and wear them any way you like.
As Franco would sing-”Alles klar?”(All right?).

They say that fashion is the well forgotten old which eventually comes back in vogue.
Well, I don’t forget my old and make my own trend with recycled ”not in fashion”old bits and bobs.
It’s more fun that way.
You don’t need to be an old lady to wear vintage grandma hat.
You don’t need to be bride or a special occasion to wear a birdcage veil.
You don’t need to be in the gym to wear a sport top on a formal(ish) occasion.
You don’t need to wear a flower hair piece on your hair only.
All you need is color sense,scissors and imagination.
Flower power belt
Belt-simple black belt,decorated with 3 big golden flowers(formerly hair pieces ,with the elastic cut out and sewn into the belt)
A view from the (slashed) top
Yellow-gold top-former sport top, very snug fit with lots of elastane.Cut horizontally with scissors on sleeves and middle part,then braided.
Golden girl with golden age hat and veil
Hat-vintage, with attached satin flower pin with birdcage veil.
Don’t be afraid of
strictly 1 purpose?,
”you’ll look ridiculous”?notions-shmotions.
Do your own thing and go for the gold.
Spotted-the object of my desire-heavy and not so heavy metal couch.
Made of all sizes pots and pans and spoons and lids.
Not for sale,unfortunately.And not to be touched,even,as the sign states.
My favorite things-fruits and bright colors.Better yet-freaky fruits with bright colors.
In hands with Buddha hands
In the hand of Buddha -Le freak,Ce chic
My newest fruit discovery-Buddha hand.On a casual saturday shopping trip buddha hand lend a helping hand to accessorize my outfit.
In the perfect shade of yellow with pink cover matching my skirt and hat.
I love when that happens.
Buddha hands-le freak,ce chic.
Aaand there we are again with my obsessionfavorite things-bling-bling,corsets and suspenders.Here is my latest creation.A waist cincher-winter fighter-corset,which doubles as thermal under overwear.It consists of 3 old bow ties,cut and sewn into a thick 16 cm elastic.With sewn stones from a bracelet in between.Yep,sometimes a buy brand new bracelets and necklaces , just so I can cut them and use them for my creations,since the supplies in the so called craft shops are very limited for my taste and very expensive too.I added big bling stones, taken also from a new necklace.Last came the orange tassels and orange giant shoe string on the back.The corset-waist cincher closes with zipper on the back side.On top of the waist cincher you see another elastic belt,worn front side back, with attached suspenders,blingified with sewable stones and also worn backside front.With 3 big bling-blings glued to the leather patch in front.Bonus point of the corset-it keeps quite warm in the winter,since it fits snug to the body.I just add a black fur- imitation bolero jacket and orange scarf,gloves,orange hat and shoes and winter -schminter can kiss my …leather glove.In other words, this is the Easybreazy version of thermal under and over-wear.
