69 comentarios

Hello everybody!! Back from the dead (too much working and magazine editing can kill anyone hehe) with a great giveaway for you to enjoy:

This week: One of a kind Scarf by birribe


Wow! I love the colors of this scarf! I think it will look great with those black/grey/brown winter coats we all have ;)

This is a colorful and fresh looking spring/fall shawl in cotton.I have used a painting technique and let the ink flow a bit make it looks like watercolor.
This cambric cotton is thin and very soft. You can wear it in many different ways. Flat on your head as a bandana or around your neck. Make it crinkled, twist it when it is damply and leave it to dry. The colors are different warm nuances of purple,brown,dark brown,fuchsia,orange and moore nuances of these.
This shawl is a one of a kind.
The fabric in this shawl is made by me in my atelier using the silksqreen technique.

width 16,4"/41cm
height 37,2"/93cm

Rules to enter:
  1. Visit birribe's shop and pick a favourite item.

  2. Leave a comment in this post with your favourite item and a way to contact you (email or etsy link. Leave a contact or I won't be able to place you in the draft).

Back to online life!  

2 comentarios

Yes, I know it has been a long time since I last posted. And that I disappeared without saying a word lol. I went on vacations! to GERMANY! And I was so busy trying to finish editing the VivaLaModa july issue before leaving that I totally forgot to update the blog. My apologies to all the fashion addicts out there ;)

However, be happy now! Not because I am back hahaha but because the 4th issue of VivaLaModa is online now! (totally FREE!)

I really hope you like it! Feel free to post comments, new ideas, suggestions, topics you would like to see, etc here or emailing me (You can see the email in the magazine website).




And this is a post full of announcements because my shop is in the galleria of PapernStitch until August 16th! Please visit it here:
http://www.papernstitch.com/

And my shop can be seen here: http://papernstitch.com/shop/gilbea
Please heart my papernstitch shop! I need hearts hearts hearts! (2 shops with most hearts win a prize!) =)

Thank youuu!

Also, relating the magazine, I am trying to get together some gift bags for the collaborators that have written most for the magazine.

In exchange your items will be reviewed in November issue of VivaLaModa! =) yay!

And for the blog fans, let me say that I am not abandoning the blog at all and that more fashion is coming your way, starting with summer dresses trends! =)
