Unfortunately this weekend was not meant to be... A friend's dog had to be put down due to age and I went to have dinner with her and a couple of friends to try and cheer her up. Something extremely casual, so no Rollerlads for me! We ended up staying at her place for the night and the weekend was over.
Next weekend I'll be out snowboarding, so unless I screw a few more studs, this time on the soles, I won't be wearing them either because I don't feel like sliding on anything other than my board!
Honestly I don't know when exactly am I going to wear the shoes, but when I do I'll post the pictures here.
Moving on... I think I might have gone a little bit overboard with the spikes thing.. I'm spiking everything that crosses my path! Luckily there are only a few left now, but that's because I already made some victims! Excess of spikes and Burberry Prorsum's inspiration produced these:
- This shirt was worn one single time... almost a year ago! And I didn't know if or when I would wear it again... Now I can't wait!
- This was a plain black knit jacket with interesting details... It had potential but lacked a little
je ne sais quoi
. Perfect for warm spring days and chilly summer nights.
- Finally this navy trench coat I got almost two years ago and worn a lot on the first year, but only once last Autumn... Revamped! (as in "vampirized", because the spikes are shaped like vampires' teeth... lol nonsense!)
That's all... for spikes!
While I was high on "DIYing", my poor Vespa's keychain caught my eye. I must confess I tried to "spike it", but it didn't look good... So I turned to my long time love for.. bolts!
I love it that Prada does a reinterpretation of their somewhat iconic keychains (they did it with the bears, the robots...), and I didn't have the opportunity (read: "money") to get the 2010 skull, that was a bionic version of my 2009 pirate skull, and I don't like the 2011 "royal" skull at all... So I "DIYed" mine!
All pictures by me.
This was it before... I was really over the black pearl! But now I feel like I renewed my love for at least another year!

Aaaaaand... that's it! I'm going to chain myself to a pole, have someone hide the spikes away from view and then check in for DIY rehab!
But before I do that, tell me what you think... honestly! Is this too much?? ^^'
