orsola 's Thoughts:

Just got home after a week off to the city where I attend university. It was really great meeting my friends again, learning until late in the uni library, having breakfast at Unibar and aperitif in the city, brunching with a breathtaking view on the mountains, listening to good music, partying till dawn and sipping liters of macchiati (coffee with milk froth)
I already miss my friends and this routine so much! I cannot wait to get back there. I feel so lazy and uninspired at my home town right now.

Being back home means at least one positive thing: DIYing!
This time the inspiration comes from the fashion week time and the thousand parties/cocktails/celebrations. Although I won’t participate to any of them (still writing my thesis, oh yes!) I was wondering today what I would wear in such an occasion.
I probably already mentioned I’m a big fan of sculpture-clothes. I’m fascinated by everything that donates volume and improbable silhouettes. In fact I am truly thankful that this season designers brought back lots of shoulder pads and draping and wish there will be more experimentation in this direction. In contrast with what many people think, you don’t need high tailor skills to create your own sculpture-piece.

I tried it with an old knee-long cocktail dress I had in my closet. I folded down the right and left side of the skirt and fixed it on the petticoat with safety pins. Afterwards I did the same with the front part. I left the back side at the original length to create a tailcoat effect. Of course to achieve this 3D effect you need a rigid textile.
I added a belt to emphasize the waist, a clutch I recently studded, black accessories designed and made by my mum, and my versatile nude sandals.
