So I started to DIY embellished tights, spent the late night hours doing it and it feels so good to finally make things again haha..

I was today in China Town hoping to find some knock off Chanel and LV tight but no luck 🙁

I did bought two knock off real leather Chanel bags lol, dude they come with little Chanel booklets and authenticity cards (with serial number) all high quality paper!!?? better be careful with ebay stuff because these are copied into every little detail!

Its so fun though, to follow this Chinese lady to little back-rooms or being taken to a warehouse in some dark alley, today she walked me to her SUV, someone was standing on watch, it was clear, we went into the car, she showed me what she got, made the payment, then she called the “watch-out” to make sure there wasn’t any police and I left… haha Chanel Dealer…

Anyway.. on the first photo, I wear a vintage blouse under my shredded t-shirt (shirt done by; whatwerock) and again my tutu to create silhouette, on the other photos its just the shirt, I choose to wear the tights with something more rough and dark, guess it was my mood..

More tights coming up 🙂 xoxo

    hiya, about the tights… I decided to give them away for free… I rather give it away then that it becomes unobtainable.. also, the tights will not last, they will rip soon ect so It would be horrible to spent a lot of money on it… so first I finish my collection and then do a post about the “haute” give away haha 🙂 xoxo

    Wow, you fucking ROCK those. P.S. I will totally give you money to get me a fake Chanel bag. I need a new bag to carry around and I know people are like, super against fake bags. But honestly, in this economy, I don’t mind sparing a little change. I can’t wait to see what other tights you made 🙂

    you are my idol and absolutely a style icon!! the stuff you come up with is absolutely incredible, I feel so unfortunate for not having a single ounce of creativity in my body. thats what amazing people like you are for, to come up with beautiful and different things like this. I can’t wait to see what else you do with the tights- I’m sure they will only be even more awe inspiring. I would absolutely buy your designs and be youre number one promoter 😛

    You tutu instil a real “urban ballet dancer-esque” twist on your silhouette . . . AND is perfectly in harmony with the “neo romantic” mood of your creative tights !!! Just like a stylish Fairytale painted on your legs . . .

    coco, i don’t even know what to say but BRAVO, what amazing execution…this turned out so graceful and gorgeous. i especially like how you left the strings hanging from the rosettes. the textures and colours, all perfect. i’m looking forward to your future tights.

    i’ve been meaning to sequin and bead floral tights (like those from doo.ri’s fall collection), but this, if you don’t mind, i’d love to try out too!

    oh, forgot to mention above how i had a very similar thought as you did a couple days back. i was looking at all the DIY projects sitting on my table and on mannequins that were going unworn and unused. i thought that it’d be nice to share and give them away instead of letting them go to waste. i believe it’s better to share creativity and ideas instead of charging for it, you know? :o)

    You have to express more your opinion to attract more readers, because just a video or plain text without any personal approach is not that valuable. But it is just form my point of view
