hey guys, fake haul post!

I have actually bought 4 pairs of shoes recently but I haven’t felt up to wearing them and taking pictures. sooo.

Since I’m broke ass, I decided to go window shopping on etsy, haven’t done that in ages. so. here we go 😀

(clicking on image brings you to the page to buy the item.)

saw this on the front page, it SO PRETTY, it looks broken and falling apart. and it looks so useddd! and fragile. lol. I speak of it as though a bird. I love things that look like they’re destroyed ❤

from the same shop, I LOVE THESE, the shape is so pretty! but I don’t quite know what to make of the red beading detail….
it looks abit like… a plant disease? I don’t know, is it so ugly its right? or pure ugly? help me.

the perfect head band. to either have people think you’re absolutely off your rocker, or fashion forward, I pick the latter.

what it looks like on, I doubt the antlers will stay up all day though. IDK. its so fucking cute I’d wear it anyway.

thus far everything’s been from the same shop xD

beautiful scarf, for any occasion. I can see someone just wearing this, drinking coffee at starbucks. white tank and jeans.

beautiful statement making but very tame gloves. pieces like this still, I feel, are statement making, and the best part is because they are not in completely screaming “LOOK AT ME” you could pair this with other quirky pieces.

these are cuffs, they don’t come with the shoe. AKA, YOU CAN PUT THEM ON ANY PAIR OF SHOES YOU LIKE!

I love the romantic feel these ooze.

simple, almost common, design now. but still ever eerie and ever pretty.

I want this one so bad. but then again I’ve always been a sucker for wings.
the face is abit strange, but I think it adds to the rustic-ness of it, n’est pas?

OKAY, I’m going to have to stop here. I can’t window shop anymore or I’ll actually buy something.

Please tell me if you all like this kinda post so I’ll do it more often 😀

ALL ITEMS HAVE BEEN LINKED TO PURCHASING SITE, none of the images are mine. If you wanna buy them, CLICK 😀

Mag Mail

I got this in my letterbox earlier this week, it’s an awesome package that comes in every two months, and in my honest opinion, well worth the subscription.

I like that Alexis has more fashion spreads than the average magazine around, and that also means less of that cringe-worthy advice that seems to generate itself every 5 pages.

This stuff is good and you’d really need to flip your fingers through these pages to get it, but I’ve put together a little sample of their latest issue so you get an idea of what I’m going at.(vol006, yes, that young!)

So many pretty pages, and you’re so able to tell which are my favourites. Pick Alexis up at good bookstores, some 7-11s sell them too. Otherwise past issues can be bought and subscriptions made on their website. Follow them on twitter too.

Much Love,

attempted smart casual.

I went to my friend’s wedding the other day.

Its supposed to be smart casual, but I don’t think I do smart very well.

The priest, as he arrived, asked me if I was the bride, I didn’t realise he was talking to me.

Later he beckoned me over and asked

priest : are you the bride?
me: oh, haha. no la.
priest: oh. because if not I would have asked you to change to trousers.
me: *in head* WHATTHEFUX? DOMYSEXYLEGSOFFENDYOU?

!!

if I had been the bride imagine how I would feel!
if its a bride’s wedding day, she should be able to wear whatever she likes!
anyway. I love my gloves *-*

jewel hairband, 4 GBP, primark
lace gloves, $25, arab st
costume vintage ring, 5 euro, paris
mustard top $12, bangkok
sunglasses, marc by marc jacobs, $200
victorian angel necklace, $12, bangkok
black pumps $30, NEWLOOK

I just wrote neckless instead of necklace xD
rackless is getting to me.

Nails!

I used to be the BIGGEST nail freak. I’m not kidding.

I couldn’t STAND having my nails chipped or whatever, and my nails used to be really long.

A good example of how much I would take care of my nails and such.

I used to do alot of nail art and stuff.
I feel long nails are just more feminine and on top of that they make your fingers look longer as well as dainty, it also gives people the impression you don’t work for a living lol. #taitailifestyle

anyway, what I wanted to share was this

this lady is amazing, every week churning out the most beautiful nail art. giving tips on how to get your nails to grow long and just about everything under the sun (she doesn’t do 3D art though).

I unfortunately DO have to make a living with labour that involves my hands (stop thinking indecent thoughts) and therefore am now unable to keep any length of nails.

So for you lucky girls who have naturally long nails/have long nails, check out her videos and tell me what you think.

for my short nailed counter parts, all the designs can be done on short nails.

I just am too lazy now that mine are short.
DO tell me what you think.
