Vintage Worn out shoes!

Does anybody like this new trend? You are all probably aware of the fact that the “worn out/washed out” vintage look is back in action all the major retailers are copying each others designs! I wish Fashion labels didn’t do that, however that’s how trends are created. A label comes up with a fresh original look and then the designs are almost plagiarized by other labels. So i’ve looking into this “worn out” look and i dont know what to think, Some of the companies have really nailed the look and some of them are just not getting it! Some of the stuff like the worn out jeans and tops are a little bit too much for me, however i love the worn out vintage shoes!

Vintage Bag

I have always loved the old school vintage leather bags, the ones that your high school teacher would probably carry arround. I never had one but i think now is the time to buy one. I have always used backpacks that are actually quite practical but the look really bad. So i was thinking about investing in a nice leather bag. Leather bags are really big just now and men’s just use them as a fashion accessorie. In my case ill probably combine both as i usually tend to carry loads of things with me, a nice bag would be the perfect accessory for me just now. These are the two styles i want to go for. The first one has the classic tan dry leather look which i love. It’s also quite simple and has an amazing colour. The second one is more vintage-shinny leather, proffesor bag look. I like the second option too as it has a lot of detail( pockets, straps etc). Which one do you think i should go for? Let me know what you think…

The Perfect Combo, This Fridays look

The perfect combo is going to be a new section to the kidlazy blog and probably the most exciting and creative one for me at least.  I have always loved reading blogs-, i spend hours searching for new fashion blogs and reading new material on new and old & established blogs.  So i decided that every week i’ll select a certain look from a blog ie “altamira” and then i will look for similar clothes on different online stores in order to match up the look for you guys at a resonable price! I am going to be doing this every friday from now on so stay  tuned, drop me a line and tell me what you think!

This is my personal recomendation for today! I love the shwood sunglasses and those brogues are just the business. To make the overall look even more casual i’ve chosen a shirt by Reiss and a simple pair of washed out jeans. This a nice and casual look but at the same time its cool and sophisticated! There is a nice contrast between the elegancy of the borgues shoes and the coolness of the shwood sunglasses!

Accessorize yourself for Winter!

Winter is kicking in and everybody has started advertising for xmas already. Since Xmas is coming up i though i ‘d make some suggestions on possible Christmas Gifts you can get.  I’ve always loved accessories because the make a  massive difference to the entire outfit if you use them correctly,  i love wearing all these accessories because you cannot wear most of them during the summer.

I love this belt by reiss! Brown leather belts are the latest thing just now! You can go for (Black wet look jeans,  Knitwear on top-(v-neck-cardigan, in black) and then you can match that belt with some brogues!

Rock & Bowl

420

Found out about these cool plates and bowls that you can make out fo cheap vinyl. I would recommend using vintage old classics or your fathers vinyl collection. I would go crazy if somebody used my vinyl collection to make plates and bowls, however you can visit a local charity shop and buy old vinyl records for something like 20 p , You know stuff like Bananorama, Phil collins, The gupsy Kings etc.

Personally i used a Bruce Willis record that i got for 50 p, I never new he had a record out. Its really bad by the way..Anyway Check out the following instructions on how to make a bowl/plate out of vinyl.

Record bowl

  1. Preheat your oven to around 200-250 degrees Fahrenheit (100-150 Celsius).
  2. Place your record on the center of an upside down pot or metal bowl. Put this onto a baking sheet.
  3. Put this into the oven. Keep a close watch because each vinyl starts to “flop” at a different time. It usually takes 4-8 minutes.
  4. Take the whole thing out of the oven (wearing oven mitts, of course) once you notice some real “flopping” going on.
  5. Put your record into another bowl and shape it around that, or you can hand mold it. Sometimes, you might like the way it looks right as you take it out of the oven; if so, skip the molding.
  6. Let it cool for 10-15 minutes.
  7. Flip it over.
  8. Put your bowl to use
