MAKING miu miu magic. D.I.Y


MIU MIU MANIA 
Miu Miu Spring/Summer has been filling my dreams of late.  The playful qualities of  Miuccia Prada’s latest collection add a sense of fun, and appeal to everyones inner child, while the crystals, and beautiful tailoring add sophistication.
Along with many others, I am crazy about the prints, the plaits, the 1960’s styling.
I loved Chloe Sevingy on the cover of Elle, Karen Gillan featured in Grazia,Lindsay Wixon working the adverising, and every editorial that features pieces. I have been raiding the internet for as many pictures I can find to drool over, and share with you- enjoy and i hope it gives you some inspiration!                           
(sources- style.com, Elle, various internet, vogue)
HOW TO MIU MIU SWALLOW SHOES.








Photographed against the sky- it really is this blue right now!
1. Raid wardrobe for unworn shoes- simple styles = easiest choice.
2. use miu miu magic post for inspiration ( I made a pattern sheet copied from the swallow clutch freehand- the swallows are pretty abstract anyway!)
3.Using a PERMANENT marker pen- start drawing swallow outlines- 
(I started with the heel) and colour in- referring to the photos or pattern sheet you have created for spacing and shape.
4.Continue over shoe- make sure birds are varied.
5.The magic should be complete!
I hope these are easy to follow, inexpensive and leave you feeling you could have a go yourself! 
I must add PATIENCE and TIME are key to a good result, although hope my steps help.
LOOK OUT FOR ANOTHER D.I.Y MIU MIU post coming soon.(This one is even easier!)   katie.x

  73. Along with clothes or dresses or outfits what comes next, apart from the manner we carry it, are the accessories complementing them. The accessories one chooses to put on along with one's attire or clothes or cheap earrings dress or outfit speaks volumes about the person's choice of style.
