Tie Dead


Vintage Grateful Dead tie-dye t-shirt (gifted) from Kinji Harajuku, custom pleated skirt from Lawrara shop, Nadia clear PVC backpack (gifted), platform mary janes and choker from Etsy, socks from Sydney markets, Kreepsville 666 horror hair horns and eyeball ring, tattoo bracelet from eBay, tights from Sportsgirl, bone keyring by Opening Ceremony.

This whole post was pretty much just an excuse to show off my favourite new things at the moment. Firstly, these lovely platform mary janes and collar/choker I snagged on Etsy. Although I've known about it for years, I haven't really been into shopping on Etsy until the past few months? So much wasted time! I've found so many great things on there lately it's ridiculous. These mary janes are srs bsns though, most of the platform is a thick foam but they are SUPER heavy, its awesome, they could do some serious damage. And the heart lock collar has barely left my neck, and it takes a real key to unlock/remove it. The tie-dye t-shirt and backpack are gifts from my friend who visited Japan recently. How sick is the clear Nadia backpack?! I think what I love about clear backpacks is that there are lot of creative things you can do with 'styling' the items you put inside.

The past couple of weeks have also been DIY funtime. I've been really into dyeing lately and the different things you can do with coloured dyes, bleach etc. and researching the best techniques ever since I was sent a pair of Mink Pink Slashers for the Facebook competition going on. I have a wicked 90s-inspired customisation in the works. In fact I just pulled my shorts out of their black dye bath this morning (2nd shot at getting them the blackest I can) and it was a success! The next thing I want to dye are some old white shoelaces of mine pastel hues using food colouring. And I also want to give tye dyeing a shot for myself. And I also want to dye and/or bleach my American Apparel denim jacket... yeah. I think I'm obsessed.
