Mille Feuilles, Fake Half Days and Unif Kickflip Dress

  Today(a.k.a yesterday but let's just pretend it was today) and tomorrow I had/have a half day at school. You'd think I'd be excited about this considering how much I totally loathe school, but no, not even close(okay a little because more time at home but I'm still mad). Our half days aren't like the half days in elementary school, what they do at my school is keep all the classes the same length and take away our lunch. WHAT. no. stoooooooooop.
  I ALSO GOT MILLE FEUILLES. (translation: thousand sheets) It is the most delicious thing in the world. And they finally had it at the little french bakery. So I bought two. Of course. And I had tea with it and watched tv.
  Aaaaaaaaand my Unif Kickflip dress arrived in the mail! I ordered it off of nasty gal and it actually came pretty fast. It is soooooo so so so pretty and flattering(not that you can tell at all from the pictures. I'm really unphotogenic, if that's a word, if not we'll make it one) and comfortable too! It's just perfect. And I got a lot of complements on it, INCLUDING FROM MY TEACHER WHO HATES ME. She said "Kya, ton ensemble allaire tres chic aujourd'hui!"(I'm in french immersion) Which translates roughly to "I hate you". I'm kidding :) "Your outfit looks very 'chic' today". But then she looked at my shoes(Jeffrey Campbell 18th street)  and said "but your shoes are kind of scary" but she said it with a smile so it was still good.
  And the reason I'm holding my voodoo book is because in english I'm doing a 2,000 word essay on whatever I wanted to and I chose to do it on vooooodoooooooooo because I love voodoo. And it's not bad and I want to tell people that. Most hoodoo is bad but I won't do that, it's just cool to learn about other cultures so I'm reading about that two a little. I'm excited for writing it because it's something I'm really interested in but I'm not excited about the fact that it's due on march 8th and he JUST gave us the project.


(p.s. if my arm looks messed up it's because I Photoshopped out a pretty big mysterious bruise that looks like I have a disease)

  I've been wanting to make one of these for a while and finally got around to doing it so I decided why not make it into a tutorial so all you lovely people out there can make one too! It's a leather clutch that is kind of a pouch style that I've seen on a couple blogs a loooooong time ago and once or twice recently. So here's how I did it:

  • Faux or real leather
  • Scissors
  • A sewing machine and thread
  • A zipper
  • A needle(maybe, only if it gets too hard to sew with a machine)
 Cut out the leather a little bit bigger(or smaller) than you would like it to be to allow room for sewing on the zipper and around the sides. For the blue clutch I just randomly cut it and for the brown one I measured it with that binder thing.
 Pin one side of the zipper with the right side up(the side that you want to be on the utside when it's finished).
 And seeeewwwwwwwww...
Then repeat on the other side.
 Flip the zipper over so it's on the wrong side(the inside of the bag) and sew it down. I only did this on the brown clutc but it made it look more professional and made it easier to zip and unzip.
Now put the right sides together and sew around all the edges.
 Turn it right side out...
   Yay it's pretty AND easy! I hope you try it! If you do post a picture of it on your blog and send me a link in the comments! If you liked this post and want to see more you can subscribe to me on bloglovin :) Thanks for reading.


(p.s. this tutorial was made for a LEATHER or FAUX LEATHER pouch/clutch. If you were to make it with a lighter fabric I think it would be best to put a lining in it so it's sturdier. If you want me to make a tutorial on that let me know in the comments)

  I've been seeing tons of holographic stuff lately... and I LOVE IT. I think it looks really cool, futuristic, and reminds me of stickers and hula hoops. 
  I tried to get all of the sources but I don't know if it worked. If there are any mistakes let me know in the comments. Also let me know if you like this whole hologram thing. Are you gonna try it out?
