WORLDWIDE GIVEAWAY - DIY Toile de Jouy clutch

DIY clutch toile de jouy vintage pattern france clothing somethingfashion GIVEAWAY worldwide price contest raffle, valencia fashion blogger spain handsewn clutch

Hand sewn items are unique pieces and if you've DIY it, they always have a significant meaning. I've been thinking about releasing this giveaway of one of the two clutches I sewed on late summer because I'm really proud of them. I think they ended looking really cool and almost professional, and it could be a nice idea for you to get an unique item to wear with your most fabulous and classy outfits. It is basically the clutch you could see on this outfit post, hand sewn with zipper and featuring this really cute Toile de Jouy blue pattern with paillettes. It's dimensions are 20x30 cm and it has also lining on the interior.

I encourage you to join the giveaway and have a chance to win this clutch dedicated to all of you who have been following the blog for a while, or have just landed into the Something Fashion philosophy. You can wear it on your daily outfits, to a dinner or night out or whatever awesome idea you're thinking about! I would also love to see how you pared it ;)

Back to school

Backpack, jeans and my favorite red lipstick. Those are my daily basics for a regular class day, from 8am to maybe 1pm, or 4, or 5 or 9pm in the night, you can't know for sure! Everyday is a new adventure to come, a new challenge to overcome and if I've learnt something since I'm studying Architecture is learn to appreciate and love every moment, every second and take advantage of any of your ideas because you don't know when you'll need a bunch of them.

I'm a really lucky girl when I think about having College no more far away than 20 minutes by bus everyday. Some of my classmates and friends come from really faraway places and I'm thankful I don't have to worry too much to come back home at the end of the day, or even the week. That makes some things really easy. Even the tiniest thing might look crazy when you live away from home, from having lunch to clean the house, your room or keep organized all your clothes and things. It also means that I don't have to walk a lot everyday to take the bus, and if the weather is angry any day I won't get too soaked.

Anyway. I like to keep it simple when choosing things for "school", and it usually means top + jeans + blazer. It's my personal basic combo because it looks nice, it's comfortable and really useful to pair just changing the color palette or adding some jewelry. Sometimes if you want to spice the outfit a little bit, play with textures and different fabrics like I did with this lace top. My backpack is an essential to carry the drawing tools and laptop I use everyday, and I think black is a nice color that matches with everything and doesn't become too dirty along the year. Now you know that getting ready for school is not difficult, and the daily "what do I wear?" drama has no reasons to exist! Always play with basics and you'll succeed.

What about you and your everyday outfits? What do you wear to your classes?

DIY clutch and ombre dress

500% productivity mode ON. Since I came back to school I've found myself tangled on lots of subjects, both personal, related with those early homework at College or with fashion. Seriously, it's like my veins have been filled with lots of caffeine and I just can't stop doing things and being super productive finishing all this issues at the very beginning. I do not like things to pile because the stress and "I'm on a super hurry" mood are the worst things on the world.

Talking about the busy-mind mood, you might know I've been working on some DIY projects lately and specially working with that Toile de Jouy fabric. With the fabric remaining of the skirt I made a simple zipper clutch with some paillettes matching it (actually, there's two of them. Surprise coming for you guys...). Big enough to carry my phone, purse and sunglasses but comfortable and easy to carry with me.

As the pattern is super romantic and has this baby blue color, I wanted to wear it around the beach on the last days at town with this tail dress which ombre colors go from pink to a light blue. I'm also showing you that it's really easy to look really chic without killer heels. Your feet will thank you for that, seriously!

Hoping you all had an awesome "back to school" month, or if you're about to start your holidays, hope you're having a terrific time!
