As If!


CUE dress, Windsor Smith sandals, heart lock collar from etsy, tattoo bracelet from eBay, cherub ring from Spank!
Nails: American Apparel "Palm Springs"

You know how people often say when commenting on an outfit, that it's successful or looks good because it aims to look like something, whether a period style or a character, without looking "costumey". I totally get that! and it can be true for sure, but if you think about it, replicating famous movie character outfits is no problem to me if the look is wearable, right? I bought this dress because, if you hadn't already guessed by the post title, it reminded me of my idol (tbh) and style inspiration Cher Horowitz (in particular a vague mix between her mint green dress and the red dress). I would happily wear most of her outfits as casual style (perhaps aside from the yellow plaid ensemble just because it's so well known). Anyway, I can't say this outfit is an attempt at a costumey look at all, but I really love this dress so much. I had it taken up a fair bit at the hem and now it's perfect! I'm so excited I finally own more dresses (because lbr I really don't wear them often).

I've been playing Dishonored a ton the past month and I'm completely obsessed! The scenery is insanely beautiful, such as Lady Boyle's party, which is one of my favourite missions (and the official game stills do not do it justice at all). The way the female characters dress is so badass, like the maid uniform and Emily's incredible white ensemble, and it's cool how all the women seem to wear pants and never skirts or dresses.

In less than two weeks I'm heading overseas with my family, we leave on Christmas day *O* Off to LA, England and Sweden! I'm super excited to be visiting all these places again, especially as I haven't been in London since we lived there when I was 2 til 4 years old, which was also the last time I visited my family in Sweden. So now is the time for me to ask you guys... the most important question of course - shopping location recs for London and Sweden?! Or any places you think I'd like, shopping or not. I'd love to hear them all! So please share your expertise ♥

Tropicana



Hawaiian shirt from Lowes, thrifted quilted pencil skirt from Kinji Harajuku, gold rings and chain necklace from eBay, "Eclipse" nail polish by Topshop.
Not pictured: Nadia clear PVC backpack and Jeffrey Campbell Litas (the latter borrowed from a friend)


Apple crumble cocktails / coconut frozen yoghurt + melted chocolate shot from Wowcow.


My Lindt advent calendar / our birthday gift to our friend: a giant box of asian treats.

Doing something kind of new for this post - using photos from my phone *GASP* no but seriously, it's hard when you have to race home from work, throw on your carefully planned party outfit and head straight out to the event without having time to photograph what you're wearing !! (with your good camera ofc). It was my friend Lucy's ✿tropical✿ themed birthday party on the weekend, which consisted of sipping the amazing apple crumble cocktails on a rooftop beneath fairy lights and palms. Afterwards a group of us grabbed some late night Wowcow froyo, which appropriately had coconut as one of the daily special flavours mmMmmmMmmm. Also I'm actually really loving my hawaiian shirt from Lowes??? I think I'm going to try and incorporate it more into my everyday wardrobe.

Are you guys getting excited since it's now officially ~december~ and you can get in that holiday spirit? We aren't putting up a tree since we're leaving for overseas on christmas day (I will talk more about this in my next post) but we will have one in our hotel room :') any of you have your tree up yet? have you named him/her? Or got up to any other seasonal decorating? If you have any photos I'd love to see them!

Love or Death



ASOS crop t-shirt, thrifted Levi's shorts from Kinji Harajuku, mum's belt, cuff and tattoo bracelet from eBay, Demonia creepers.
Nails: Topshop "Eclipse"
Lips: Revlon "Wine Not"

Lately I've been channelling Mathilda Lando since it's finally hot enough to crack out my new ASOS crop woohoo. Ideally I'd have a striped one though... so next I'll need to get the striped American Apparel one. and some kickass boots... and a Ruger SP101.

School is coming to the end of it's year! With only one assessment presentation left I've had more time for shows e.g. The Walking Dead (which I've been meaning to start for over a year now) and it is my new favourite. For somebody obsessed with post-apocalyptic/zombie/horror everything I can't believe I didn't start it sooner??? The reason I was really pushed to start it now though was because I got addicted to watching Let's Play videos on youtube for the game version. And speaking of games, I finished LIMBO a few weeks ago, it was so beautiful and eerie and incredible in every way possible, I hope they make another :'(
These holidays I have an epic list of gaming planned, including:
  • finishing Dawnguard on Skyrim
  • starting Assassin's Creed (I haven't played any of them yet)
  • learning to play The Hidden
  • learning to play Minecraft (which I've had downloaded and untouched on my laptop for many months now)
  • starting Dishonoured (!!!)
  • maybe trying out some Halo 4?? because my brother got the deluxe package and I feel like I should try to get better at Halo in general
I also plan to make Ponyo Ramen... which I just thought I'd mention as well. Def going to blog about that so stay tuned (⌒▽⌒)

Curiouser






Costume: Dress secondhand from eBay, headband and velvet bow self-made, Mary Janes from etsy, Muchacha Ahcahcum cat purse.

Happy Halloween! This is actually the second time I've been in an Alice costume (last time was my 14th birthday party) but this time I actually own the dress :-D Originally I'd planned to go full evil alice - black demonic dripping eye-makeup, black lips... But I was enjoying being regular alice too much to go any further than the matte black nails. And the cat purse is supposed to be my Dina! Or the Cheshire cat. I love this dress and costume so much, I wish I could dress like this every day.

During the day I dressed witchy (see polaroids above) as my pre-halloween 'costume' of sorts, adorning myself with as much black and as many pentagrams as possible. My evening consisted of lots of friends, music, feasting, some zombie anime and horror movies. Something about eating too many cheese puffs and orange gummy worms (maybe it's all that orange food colouring) combined with it being halloween(?) gave me the weirdest dreams ever that night. Did you guys get up to anything this halloween? Who or what did you dress as? And if you have a post up for halloween please link me below as I'd love to see.

Already looking forward to next halloween, time to start planning again!

Witch Baby ☪


Dress from Nasty Gal, Mary Janes from etsy, pentagram necklace and tattoo choker from eBay, Spank! cherub ring, Nadia cross temporary tattoo.

Found the perfect witchy dress for spring/summer ☪ just in time for October/Halloween too. and I think this is my first outfit post featuring Champ (our precious kitty). He's my Salem and he's so lovely and spoiled rotten.

So biggest news of the week, I got my drivers license!!! (P1 license for those of you in Australia) so I can finally drive all by myself ~woah~. It's really liberating and now I can go wherever I want whenever I want (almost). I'm so glad I never have to take a practical driving test ever again, hallelujah!
