I nearly went crazy when I found this jacket, obviously, it didnt have the grey lace I added to it, it was just plein black, but I saw EXTREME BALMAIN POTENTIAL in it!!!

Right after I bought it, I went to my favourite fabric store in Amsterdam so I could find something I could pimp it with and make it look Balmainish, turns our I found the perfect grey sort of lace (I have no idea how else to call it, help please! lol) and I got to work.

After an hour of sewing, I was all done, and over the moon, maybe its just me, but I think it looks pretty similar!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This has to be my favourite DIY so far!!!
and what a way to start 2009!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! yeah!!!
