Frog Princess

Wearing: Thrifted blazer, DIY headband, Meadham Kirchhoff X Topshop dress and Lipstick jelly sandals.
The weather has been unusually warm for this time of year so I've tried to make the most of it by wearing super princessy inspired outfits or dresses with frilly socks. I'm sure in about a week's time I'll be back in my frumpy over sized jumpers and stomping around in Dr Marten boots vibing hard on Ghost World but this brief spell of sunshine is nice too. Today's outfit was all about channeling my inner princess with accompanying frog prince. I needed an excuse to wear this dress again and a pastel purple and pink colour palette seemed the most sensible. The crown is for sale in my etsy which, hopefully I will restock soon but this time of year is always crazy what with assignments for uni, exams to study for and a general sense of impending doom.

Life without colour

Wearing: Yaponskii black and silver top, hand-me-down check shirt, sweater from Ezzentic Topz, Zana Bayne PVC harness, American Apparel socks and Lipstick jelly sandals.

This Zana Bayne  harness is one of my favourite things at the moment because it satisfies most or all of my weird fascinations in terms of fashion. I love getting to put it on, fiddling with the hardware and hearing the metal clink as I play with the straps and buckle. Technically I am wearing it backwards but I feel like a little German goth schoolgirl when I wear it this way and I am hassled less on the street. Because it's made from PVC you could argue that "it's better for the environment" or "vegan friendly" but honestly I just like the material because it's kind of ghost-like and I can wear it over black. The resemblance towards an actual sex harness and bondage is softened and they also match my jelly shoes- which I am stubbornly wearing even in this colder Autumn weather.
