From time to time, I love myself some jewelry that looks like it is coming straight from your local hardware store. This hard plastic bracelet that closes with two sludges and a tube is by Cooee.

White pumps are something I have never tried ever before and I thought my first time would be at my wedding – which will not happen anytime soon. Nevertheless I am wearing these gorgeous (and comfy!) white J.W.Anderson for Aldo pumps today and I believe they go perfectly well with the new fancy pants that I made this week. Fancy shoes AND jeans ask for a casual top, hence the utterly soft LNA jumper in this beautiful color I can not describe, but it is right in between dove grey and light minty green. LNA jumper, diy Levi’s jeans and J.W. Anderson x Aldo shoes.

TIE DYE DENIM

Supplies: a pair of jeans bleach rubber bands cleaning gloves a bucket 1. Fill your bucket with water and make sure the jeans are wet before you tie them with the rubber bands. 2. Wrench, so the jeans are not soaking wet. 3. Tie as many and as much rubber bands as you like until the jeans are all bundled up. There is no right or wrong in this case (less rubber means the more your jeans gets bleached). It is the easiest to start with the legs. 4. Put bleach in the bucket. They say it is 2 cups of bleach with 1,5l of water, but filled up the bucket with water and put in half of the bottle of bleach. It felt like the right thing to do and the bleaching took too long with just 2 cups. 5. Use your gloves to put the jeans in the bucket. An extra tip is to put something heavy on the jeans – for example an empty bottle of wine, like I did -, so your project stays completely under water (otherwise you have to flip the jeans every hour or so). 6.  Check on your jeans every now and then. 7. When the jeans look white enough, take them out and put them in the washing machine. 8. Lay flat to dry.

When it comes to spring looks I tend to exchange the usual black for a fare amount of white. All white in this case. I think it is a look that is kind of hard to pull off, especially when your name is Sabrina and you are not that good with food (lunches usually make me have to exchange outfits). But it is fun to try from time to time. Zara shirt, Mango jeans, Céline shoes and H&M belt.

EFVA ATTLING

Ever since I got a watch, necklace and ring from Efva Attling I have been wearing them non-stop. The items are subtle, but very stylish and true compliment-getters. The Swedish born designer just recently opened her first store in the Meatpacking District in New York, with neighbors such as Alexander McQueen, Diane von Furstenberg, and Tory Burch. Efva Attling calls her designs ‘beauty with a thought’ and that is exactly how I would describe her collection, especially the funky rings. Fashion Networks is giving away one of those rings to one lucky winner (worldwide). All you need to do is: 1. Vote for your favorite funky ring here. Paparazzi Ring – Fuck Off Sans Peur Ring – Without Fear Amor Fati Ring – The Love for our Destiny 2. Send an email with your name and address and the reason why you should win the ring to: efvaattling@fashionnetworks.se The winner will be announced on Freshnet soon.

I SPY DIY

Fancy pants come with a fancy price tag, at least most of the time they do. The Isabel Marant tie dye jeans from her spring/summer 2012 collection are to die (or to dye?) for, though the price tag is pretty hefty for a pare of pants that is an easy do it yourself project. I am planning on making these myself next week, the bleach is ready to be used and I will show you the end result as soon as it’s done. ph/ Elin Kling

DION LEE

Slightly obsessed with this Dion Lee skirt Christine Centenera is wearing. I am completely and utterly in love with the way it is constructed and the combination of the crisp white with just the right lightness of grey. It works so well with the peeptoe booties and the silk (Equipment?) shirt. ph/ unknown

They say opposites attract and I am a firm believer of that when it comes to getting dressed. Whether it is just a small contrast in the detailing like mixing a gold necklace with a silver watch, or in a more obvious way, like I am doing here with the heavy shoes and the light dress. I agree, this outfit is not something everyone would expect from me, but I like to keep surprising myself every now and then. I actually just tried on this dress for a recent ‘project’ I did (which will be on the blog sooner than later), but I liked it so much that I decided to keep it. ] My dad thinks this outfit makes me look like a little bridesmaid in combat boots, my boyfriend thinks the look is ‘enchanting’. Either way, I feel like a little rockstar princess and I have been wearing it non-stop since I bought it three days ago. On other notes, I have been getting so many questions and compliments about my new watch and necklace. They’re both from the Swedish jewellery designer Efva Attling. Zara leather jacket, lace dress and boots, Efva Attling necklace and watch, Céline bag and Burberry sunglasses.
