Playing with Karen in the Lower east Side, just goofing around,

I had a DIY craze last night doing these tights, and I did the leggings Karen is wearing too, they are subtle embellished with black Swarovski’s more understated then the other tights but for fall these are gonna be my baby’s lol, black shimmer on black πŸ™‚

My tutu dress is from the H&M, studded choker, heels from steve madden, Karen is wearing a draped up and pinned H&M dress, with Emma Cook’s.

I have been a bit absent lately cause I have been so busy with a lot of diy’s and designs but take tomorrow to get back at the comments and emails πŸ™‚

love ya
