Look who's alive guys! I bet you missed me like cheese on a cracker, or I bet you didn't even notice I was away for almost a whole week! I'm buying everyone a kitty if you missed me, or not...I'll think about it. Any who, the reason I was afk and sorry I haven't been very active on your blogs as well, is because we're moving our apartment and the last couple of days I've been throwing out shit I don't need and packing up shit I don't need, but I'm too clingy to throw out. Just so you know I'm not lying, brace yourself, a very unattractive photo is coming!
As you can see, we're too cool for the conventional boring boxes, so we just throw everything into suitcases and plastic bags. So rebellious! I'll be taking photos of the new home, as soon as we unpack everything so prepare for lots of interior photos. I was thinking of making a new category for the blog called "Interior Ideas", but I'm not sure if you guys would find this interesting, let me know in the comments!
Now, for the fashiony part!
I showed you this dress in one of my thrift haul posts and didn't have the chance to wear it, because the weather was an ass. But yesterday the temperatures skyrocketed to 18°C and I was pretty without being cold, hooray!
I like the Steampunk design of this dress, the belting, leather patches and lace all come together to form a beautiful masterpiece. I think it's perfect for my Harajuku style. I'll probably try to make this into a proper Steampunk ensemble and buy some additional accessories, but for now I just wanted to make it the centerpiece of the outfit and wear it with a shirt on top. I left the shirt intentionally wrinkled (read I was too lazy to iron it) to add a grunge effect and paired everything with a choker necklace and chunky boots.
What I love most about the dress is the gorgeous back detail. I think every piece of clothing should have a hint of surprise on the back, it may be some different color, textile, ties or other decorations, as it makes everything so cheeky and tasteful.
And of course, my choice for scrunchy is totally uncoordinated and weird...If anyone has a store for scrunchies, please drop me a line, because my collection of hair accessories looks like something a crazy grandma or a 4 year old would wear.
And that's it for today, see ya as soon as they set up my precious internet connection. Oh Cthulhu, please, make it quick, I can't survive without internet! O_O
