I'm still learning what it means to smile in photos at the moment so some 'black lipstick' AKA black face paint was the perfect grunge touch to an otherwise girly outfit. Seriously though, if anyone wants to sponsor me for makeup or something I have no better alternatives lying around at the moment. Also this is an accurate representation of how I wear my hair for most of Summer. When it's boiling hot, I keep it up and off my neck but this was one of my messier bus. There are no coloured extensions or anything sassy about it though- which I will have to rectify at some point. There's also the top I made which looks a little wonky but still nice in photographs.I've been really caught up in making things at the moment- including collaging like the Tasmanian Devil from Loony Tunes in a tornado of rabies and scissors. I'm just kidding, I've had all my necessary shots guys.
These are the shoes I had to wear as part of my school uniform and my mother insisted on getting a new pair for my final year. At the time it made no sense to me since my old pair would fall apart in the middle of the year when no one cared anymore but no. I had to live my life obeying the rules. I'm tempted to begin wearing them again since there's a lot of life left in the leather but I still need to figure out how to avoid looking like a high school student through style. Here they seem cliche with pastel tones and a dress but I think some wide leg pants in strange patterns or leggings with statement socks may help a little as well. I'm also thinking of drawing some smiley faces on them with fabric paint or painting them in coat after coat of glitter which is a little difficult given the perforated holes. I'll think of something though- don't you worry about me.

I forgot how glorious it was to wear my stacker rings! It feels good not to have the dishes and remedial chores interfering with what I wear (for once). This is where most of my gold rings fit into- since buying chunky gold rings in cool designs often means getting huge mens' rings to re-size or forking out tonnes of cash. These rings however, are so much more precious and dainty than the usual rings I wear which friends refer to as comical knuckle dusters. Rings are among my favourite pieces of jewellery, but when I'm doing practical things they tend to get in the way and I hate scratching them. It's been a while since I've bought some new jewels, but at the moment I'm more fixated on creating clothes and stuff for my own outfit posts and loving every moment of it. I wonder if I can convince my friends to make DIY crowns with me when we next hang out...
