Bicycle tire creation

With mostly recycled materials.Mixing different textures.Rubber-apron,leather-jacket,gloves and shoes,spandex-leggings,chiffon- full skirt,velvet-cap,knitted sweater and glittering gold,gold gold anything-chains,belt,decorations on shoes and gloves,bag with golden chains.I know.Too much Mr.T influence.Then again,I’ve always been from the ”More is more” brigade,so bring it on..Inspired by Dexter (the apron!) and Mr.T (the chains)

Bicycle creation with leather bolero jacket

Bicycle tire apron creation with leather bolero jacket

In Holland every cat and dog rides bicycle, so it was only natural to use and old bicycle tires to create this look.

Bicycle

Bicycle tire apron and leather bolero

For the bolero leather jacket, I used  vintage leather jacket(circa 80’s) with huge sleeves.Big and dowdy,with lots of rhinestones applications(think Elvis from the 80’s?).So I cut the sleeves and sew them together.Then added the belt from the same jacket.Bam!Leather bolero made from sleeves alone.

B

Black rubber apron and leather jacket with golden chains

Demonstrating the full skirt feature of this outfit.Worn with spandex leggings.While trying to look DEXTER-esque with my rubber apron, putting a leather glove..Side note-I am a huge Dexter fan.

Rubber apron front and back view

For the apron,I cut the strips,then wove them and put the lining.Then made the suspenders.

Annd there you have it-my Dexter meets Mr.T outfit.

The daily inspiration-the hell with hibernation- by Anais Nin

“You live like this, sheltered, in a delicate world,
and you believe you are living.
Then you read a book (Lady Chatterley, for instance),
or you take a trip, or
you talk with Richard,
and you discover that you are not living,
that you are
hibernating.
The symptoms of hibernating are easily detectable:
first, restlessness.
The second symptom
(when hibernating becomes dangerous and might degenerate into death):
absence of pleasure.
That is all.
It appears like an innocuous illness.
Monotony, boredom, death.
Millions live like this
(or die like this) without knowing it.
They work in offices.
They drive a car.
They picnic with their families.
They raise children.
And then some shock
treatment takes place,
a person, a book, a song, and it awakens them
and saves them from death.”
Anais Nin

Have a nice day! or better yet
Have a shock treatment day!

Daily Poem-Defy Yourself

Defy Yourself
by Socially-Suicidal

Dare to be determined,
To step ahead by your own free will.
Dare to be assertive,
To trust yourself even if you’re wrong.
Dare to release yourself,
From all the assumptions you made before.
Dare to show effort,
Outside of the effort of stressing yourself.
Dare to have confidence,
Dare to think you’re worth it,
Dare to think that someone cares,
Dare to make a decision.
Dare to say you’re moving on,
Dare to say you’re moving in,
Dare to not back out again,
Dare to risk us or anything else.
Go ahead,
Take a step,
One step out of a hole,
A hole that you’ve been digging for months,
Defy yourself.

Street(or field,or sky) Style Stylish Heroes/Icons Photos Welcomed

feel free to send more nominations for  style icon/hero of the month or year 2013.

As you can see from my previous post http://wp.me/p2iumO-ED,
age,weight,height or professional photos ,camera or skills are  not a factor to be a stylish icon.
All you need is simple camera,sense of style ,guts and attitude.
Anything goes.
Accept ugh(as in uggggly-baad for your feet) boots,
crocks,
fleece or
the ever present LV or Chanel B.O.R.I.N.G. bag with
ugly,in your face logos screaming
I -desperately -wanna -fit-in-so -I-busted-My -mom-fiance-lover-stolen?credit card to carry around this overrated ,every other Tom,Dick and Harry ”cool”-wannabe favorite bag.
Have you ever stopped in your tracks  with awe, excitement and bewonderment on the street  over a somebody( and just other 10 million more people)carrying ”the” omnipresent LV and Chanel bag and thought:
”Gee, that’s so beautiful and original,I am gonna get me some of that too,asap.So I can blend with my fellow 10 million plus victims of a brilliant marketing strategy.Marketing genius,designed to entice the sheepish masses into a spending frenzy and bland worshiping of  a overrated,overhyped,overpriced piece of leather(if real),or canvas(if fake).
More rhymed musings on the subject can be read at http://wp.me/p2iumO-7Q.
Message conveyed,I hope.
Send in those funky,crazy,creative,original street(or field or sky) shots,please.
Because Inspiration is everywhere.

Street style first hero/icon of the 2013

Take notes,68 year old ones,
especially the ones with broken ribs!
This is how you do it.

Style hero

During my walk yesterday,I saw this blue and camel vision on our streets and asked him to pose with me.Thank you,Mr Style.

Style icon

Style icon with blue shoes and broken rib

Vintage well worn leather jacket-check!
Matching  rucksack on back-check!
Vintage gentleman hat-check!
Leather gloves -check!
Elvis blue pants-check!
Blue, not suede shoes-ckeck!
Vintage wooden kane with silver handle-check!
Vintage shawl-check!
Daily paper to keep with the world-check!
Style,attitude and quirkiness-check!
Smile,positivity and the hell with broken rib-check,check and double check.
How can that 68 year old dandy not be my first style icon/hero of the year.?
Indeed, under his leather jacket he was hiding a broken rib(result of a freaky accident),but that doesn’t stopped him to honor the bland streets with his stylishness.
This is how the real dandy’s do it.Even with broken rib.Or a missing jacket button.

Amazingness and awesomeness.

If only more people made the effort…
