Hello my Dears! As some of you have been following me since my early blogging days while other just joined the party, I thought it would be nice to thank you all with a little present! A giveaway!
A while ago, while hunting for some treasure finds in the Milanese vintage shop Cavalli & Nastri, I found this beautiful embroidered organza ribbon piece. It was so delicate and and yet in perfect condition that I had to have it, no matter its price! While I don’t always go crazy for vintage clothing, I do love to use vintage trims, fabrics and decorations such as buttons and borders in my designs. It must be the feeling of bringing something back to life in my own way… Plus the idea that the piece I am making will be truly unique and thus rare, make it even more special!
On the other side, every time I was passing my my local haberdashery store in Brussels, Veritas, I was drown to their cute pompom trim and especially their fuchsia one. Oh yes… Girls will always be girls! I purchased a pack for another project but as I arrived home, this organza fabric (which in the meantime was safely stored in my “for later” box) came immediately to my mind as it was of course the perfect match!
Another thing I wanted to do, as my work mainly consists in making personalized wedding dresses, was to customized this pochette for you! How? Well, the lucky winner will have the opportunity to have their name in the lining (Handmade by Valentine Avoh for …).
As I use my pochette as a make up pouch, I thought that if you had to do the same, you would definitely need an exclusive item to go in your exclusive pouch! Right? And that’s where I teamed up with Chanel to offer you this dark pink nail polish! Infidèle is it’s name which means unfaithful in french… I hope you like it as it is one of my favorite from their range. It goes as well on the hands that it does on the feet.
