Transitional Wear; The Pastel Bomber Jacket


The first bomber jackets made a comeback last year, and the sports trend is here to stay. This Spring, the bombers in the Filippa K and T By Wang collections got a feminine update in gelato colors, which makes it the perfect transitional jacket. Wear it now with a white silk shirt and black leather pants or in Summer with a pencil skirt or shorts.

How To DIY A Chanel Graffiti Backpack


Remember that time when backpacks were called BacSacs and subway trains and stations were bombed with pieces by Keith Haring or Lee? One of the most iconic bags in the Art trend this Spring is the Chanel graffiti backpack.

Since no eighties girl would be fooled by the $3400 (!) price tag, it was only a matter of time before the web was bombed with cool DIY’s. Follow these steps by ChicCheat, be prepared to get messy and you’ve got your own Bricolage,  which means DIY in French so Karl should have seen this coming.

Choose a normal size or a mini version, which is great for the coming Summer Festival season. To avoid a shameless copy and make the bag more personal, I’d suggest you use your own initials and hometown instead of CC, Rue Cambon, Paris.

If your totally NOT in the mood for a crafty Sunday, try a vintage search for an original canvas and leather BagSac backpack now before prices will reach the sky as backpacks are making a serious comeback.
