Vintage Paper dolls.. something you’ll love. August 26, 2007

xsI am so sure you will also love this vintage paper doll photo I picked out while surfing through my favorite Indie Blogs. Don’t you just love the designs. For over 4 years now, I have been collecting stuff from vintage – posters, pins, hats, toys.. oh yah and even boyfriend. Mico (my boyfriend) is not entirely vintage (referring to age) but he has his own set of vintage collection – from vespa, mini cooper, and watches I should say. At the end of each day, we would compare our finds. I just wish he would start a blog to share his hobby. To think he writes so much better than I do.

I mentioned a while back that I am launching a new line – I still havent thought of a name this coming September. This line is a whole new collection not fashion but to HOME stuff from – vintage clocks, frames, pens, stationary, lamps, toys, and so much more. In connection with this, if you have unique home accessories that you would like to consign/sell you may email it to me at myfavcloset@yahoo.com. I already got tons of inquiry on this new line, we are totally preparing for it cause everyone is sooo excited.

Frida Fringes.. something to check out. August 10, 2007

As I was rummaging through my closet of beads, chains, charms, headpieces, straps etc.. looking for a new inspiration. I came across something interesting. My staff knows that I have the tendency to hoard, collect things that I feel got potential and oftentimes I forget all about it. I had this neckpiece for a almost a year now, I suddenly decide to make something out of it… Meet Frida, Frida fringes…

I love how the fringes falls to your neck.. It will surely dress up you simple outfit.. just don’t forget the cleavage power. =) Remember, I only have 3 limited edition pieces.

Neckpiece sold for P899

Limited edition .. I am not plastic.. bag July 29, 2007

I enjoyed making my own ensemble of the I’am not plastic bag. Or should I say, I wanted to add more of “irene’s closet” touch to the Edgy Ecology bag. Since the store has been known to sell unique pieces and not mass produced, I thought I just had to make it more personalize. Check out the first batch of the I am not plastic bag with a twist. We just displayed it today and luckily we sold 2 at once.
The I am not plastic bag, limited edition will also be available at Schu, Glorietta 3 by Wed Aug 1. Come grab you limited edition bag… and help eliminate plastic in a stylish way.

“Play a bit” necklaces collection out now July 28, 2007

fdAside from it being my inspiration for my Coochilala logo… I got so into it that I decided to “play a bit” and work on a full necklace collection made of scrabble letters and bingo chips. It is something new, expect it to be a true conversational piece. So to those who plan to copy this again… Once you finish doing your own version I’ll be out with something new … as always.

I really had a hard time finding the right bingo chips… and scrabble letters. But I am so determine to come out with this collection that I had to go to 8 bookstores and office supply stores just to find the right one, when finally I did… I had to figure out a way to make it into a charm.. Enjoy this collection while it last for I am not making a whole bunch.. It is a limited engagment =)

Paul smith / mini cooper / table… DIY June 30, 2007

Filed under: Decor,DIY ideas,Inspiration,Interiors,Project Irene — irenescloset @ 2:36 am

Yah call me cheap… But i enjoyed this DIY project I had for the store. Here is an old console table which we kinda snuck out of my boyfriends house. Since we didn’t ask permission from his mom we had to disguise it. Just incase his mom passes by the store. This DIY project is sooo Paul Smith Mini Cooper inspired. I turned a dirty, worn out, oldie console table to a hip retro/PS accent display piece. Would you believe took me only an hour to transform it and I just spent P150. Wondering how? With the use of a remarkable tool – Colored electric tape!
