Skirt is DIY | bag and hat are thrifted | top (swimmers) are from Asos (sold out) | shoes c/o Yeswalker
Just like I did two years ago, my mum got a sewing machine for christmas! She's decided she wants to start being crafty and learn how to make her own clothes (she also happens to be one of the most stylish ladies I know, so I can't wait to see what she comes up with). After I taught her how to make a dress, which we used an owl-print fabric for and which turned out AWESOME, I used the machine myself to make this blue gingham circle skirt with detachable suspenders! I love the fullness of the skirt, although the wind made it a little difficult to show that off in these photos. I paired the skirt with some retro-inspired Cadillac swimmers for a summer vibe.
If you follow any other sciencey-type blogs or news sites, then you've probably seen a lot of "the best science of 2013" posts. Well, this one is a little bit different, and while it may include more stories about 3D-printed prosthetic foots being made for ducklings rather than, say, the oldest human DNA ever being discovered, I feel like it's more representative of the kinds of science that really piques my interest.
So, science in 2013 through the lens of the Pineneedle Collective:
February: the Mars One project is established, in which the first candidates for Mars colonization will be chosen via the medium of reality TV.
May: I explained how to become an amateur biohacker and extract DNA at home using household ingredients.
July: 3D printing continues to impress me, this time by saving the life of a duckling.
September: Two seperate studies arose that suggest we're all martians.
November: I gave you all a crash-course in the basics of biochemistry.
Happy New Years!
