We Want Exclusive.

It's no lie, we all want what we "can't" have. Including (for me), this beautiful vintage only one like it in the store and sold out online spring/summer dress I saw at KLING Boutique today in Lisbon. Bah. I love it. Got the sweet lady to take some photos of me in it so I can remember it. It's way out of my budget.

And these limited quanity shoes - Seriously love them both, I can't decide which I'd splurge on...
Gee'wawa because it's funky + more versitile or Iris Van Herpen x United Nude because it's f'ing awesome??

Featuring: Fabrico Infinito

I found this boutique when I was walking around my neighborhood in Lisbon today. They call it a, "concept shop and galeria." Every piece inside is a piece of wearable art. They range from clothes to accessories to home decor and books. This shop is a gem inside of Lisboa and I'm extremely happy to have found it and to share it with you, if you're ever in Lisboa...*

paint splattered button-up (i love!), the most glamourous robe, ocean headphones, the funkiest suit, necklaces + corked rings!, clutch that sparkles, art on a chair and a view of Lisboa.

"There is the work of perform what the talent imagined.  And there is sweat, errors, disillusion.  But also joy and satisfaction by fulfill a design, an appeal that comes from inside.  The satisfaction of a "must" fulfilled.  It forms of talk between who produces and who consume." fabrico infinito

DIY: Woven Chain Bracelet

This might be my favorite DIY. I love this threaded, colorful but sophisticated bracelet. The idea (+ PHOTOS) stem from HONESTLYWTF and is inspired by Aurèlie Bidermann‘s Do Brazil bracelets that are around 160 euros. Check her website, she's an amazing designer- but the bracelets honestlywtf created are almost identical. And the fact that it's so easy to do yourself makes me love it even more.

Here's how you do it:
You'll need: a curb link bracelet (american apparel $25 here, or michaels arts & crafts), embroidery thread, two bobby pins and a pair of scissors.

  1. Cut 2 sets of 15 strands of embroidery thread, with each strand measuring four times the length of the bracelet.
  2. Knot the all the threads at the top, leaving about 2 inches of slack. Sandwich each set between a bobby pin – this will help you easily weave the threads through the links of the bracelet.
  3. Lay the threads to the left of the bracelet. Pull the first color (coral) from under the first link and over the top of the left side.
Lay the second color (blue) over the first color (coral). Pull the second color (blue) from under the same link and over the top left again. Repeat the steps, moving onto a new link.

ERICA SAYS "Because the links of this particular bracelet are large, I wove the threads through twice on each link. If you are using a smaller linked bracelet, you should weave through each link once like this."

Repeat the steps until you reach the end of the bracelet. Finish it with a knot and trim the ends

Remember this will be saved in the DIY: PROJECTS page of Dragon Fruit

voilà! :)
