DIY Personal Style

Peach Explosion

Hi guys,

Sorry for the delay this post was supposed to go up Wednesday but because I still don’t have a camera I’m at the mercy of a lot of elements. It was a long road here but we’re here.

Recently I’ve been exploring the more girly side of my style. I’m mostly bohemian and minimalist with a tomboy edge but I’m softening up those edges for this post and wearing colors that I most likely wouldn’t wear even if I had a gun to my head; Peach or Coral ( I can’t decide what this fabric is).

I’m also exploring the Japanese culture, because it has always appealed to me, the marriage of a relationship with nature and the appreciation of industry just made perfect sense to me. While I was exploring I came across an article of clothing that I loved so much I wanted to make it ; the traditional Haori Jacket. I went on YouTube scouting for videos on how to make it till I found a DIY video on MadebyYaya, a DIY fashion channel. I decided to make one for myself and paired it with a pair of wide leg pants that I also made in a lovely peachy, coral toned polished cotton.

I think I’m going to stop talking because there are so many beautiful pictures in which I look like a refreshing peach sorbet on a really hot day. My Amazing friend Oreva did an awesome job (he will not let me hear word now oh). Here they are .

So there you have it the only way I will wear anything remotely close to pink is in a co ord. I love this look, I hope you love it too. If you do let me know in the comments section if I should make this for sale and if you would buy.

Till next time lovers.

    Love love love this look. The wide legged pant looks very comfortable and easy, the bow detail adds a touch of style to what could pass for a pyjama bottom. Teamed up with the jacket and in that color, its simply chic. I would buy it in a heart beat.
    Bravo.
