stam_vogueit1106_6.jpgThose are not combat boots… those are the popular doc martens during the 90’s… Oh please! Never did I imagine. =) I love the black and white photos by Tom Munro for the November 2006 Vogue Italia. I remember paring this ol grungy Doc Martens with a very feminine chiffon dress. I wonder where my old docs are? Probably sold it for 200 pesos in a garage sale few years back. I wonder how much they are selling now.stam_vogueit1106.jpg stam_vogueit1106_2.jpg stam_vogueit1106_4.jpg stam_vogueit1106_5.jpg stam_vogueit1106_7.jpg



First of the series of our Glam Rock Collection.. November 24, 2006

Filed under: Arts and Crafts,Inspiration,Necklaces,Project Irene — irenescloset @ 7:11 am

My friend Lara was the one who named this collection. Glam Rock! This collection is inspired by my visitor from LA who personally loves Japanese Fashion. For months now I been wanting to use the huge colored coated pins my friend Mickey See brought from HongKong. The materials for this collection is from my daily hand picking of found objects I’ve gathered through the months of searching, conceptualizing… yah and even soul searching. But like what they say.. once you start you just cant stop. Check out the “first” of my Glam Rock Collection… meaning – expect more very soon

After checking some cool online japanese magazine I came across something cool. I don’t think I can pass this opportunity to post this on my blog. I hope my brother can make something like this for Abby and Fibby (our lovable dogs)… and Marni of Marni’s room..

My ongoing project – my apartment November 21, 2006

Filed under: Arts and Crafts,Decor,Designer notes,DIY ideas,Places I adore — irenescloset @ 8:14 am

As I’ve said in my previous post.. I want to redecorate my apartment. Slowly… well more on VERY slow, I take tiny time fixing my house. With my limited budget I just try to make the most of what I have. I made use of furniture that was just hand down to me. Namely – Paolo’s old futon sofa.. The upholstery is yucky. I had to just cover it with some excess fabric from my clothes collection. Some of the nice vintage fabric are gifts from designer friends which I cut out and with the help of double sided tape, I used it as accent on those typical kitchen cabinet doors. I wanted some opulent feel.. I had to choose some rich dark colored curtains… which by the way were on sale at SM department store. Got it for P245/panel… Spent more or less P1500 for both windows including the rod. The challenge really is on the creation of unique interior design on such a shoe string budget. Tell me what you think… Love to hear some great ideas to help me design my place.

On my line up – change the kitchen door handle to something more colorful. Stickers to apply on the white times. Some nice pots and pans… Oh please! Yah my pots are just eeks.. I saw this really nice retro chairs at Dimensione… will post pictures soon. Throw-pillow on my sofa. I wanted some disco feeling throw pillows.. Those silver sequined ones and maybe few turquoise color. Those are few of my top priority on my list.

Shoe to steal…

Shoe to steal.. well I just did. Check out the D&G inspired shoes I found in a thrift shop. Got it for P100… So when I found a picture of the Dolce and Gabbana white lace up mule. I just had to post it in my blog. I never had the chance to wear it though. I don’t know what outfit I can pair it with… Help.. Help me find an outfit that I could pair with this fabulous steal.
