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 😀

What’s Inside?

‘Sups all!

Today, I’ve got a feature that I really enjoy reading when I read the other blogs around. It’s the “What’s In My Bag” feature. Slightly perverse and stalker-ly, but hey, you really do learn a lot from knowing what’s in your own bag (and in other people’s bag)!

I have a lot of nick names, from school and from work (too many, don’t count). One of them came about while I was still in college, but the habit was around forever. They called me “Doraemon“. Why? Because I had everything in my bag. Maybe the following series of ‘What’s In My Bag’ will explain it to you, bag by bag.

Today’s “What’s In My Bag” feature is based on this outfit post I recently made on racklessblog. It’s literally the contents of my bag on the same night I wore that outfit out for the same dinner.

The lovely clutch I got from MDS Collections, admittedly looking a little stuffed.

Curious?

Yep, all of that was in my bag at dinner time. Now you’re starting to understand the nickname.

The clutch has three very generous compartments.

In the first compartment (the outermost)

L-R: Liese Designing Jelly No.2 (useful because I tend to leave the house with my hair in a bun, then let it down later in the day, the “jelly” keeps the curls/waves around for much longer), my bunch of work keys (because you never know), panadol (just in case), house keys, boyfriend’s wallet (not because it’s cool, but because my partner is a lazy person who doesn’t bring out his own bag out because he doesn’t want to carry it, so he stuffs his things into my bag), DBS i-Banking dongles for 2 accounts (again, just in case).

Second compartment.

L-R: Bottle of denatured alcohol and shampoo, because I stopped by Guardian and Watsons on my way to dinner. No funny story here, moving along.

The third compartment

L-R: A printed servette I had pinched (because it had an ad on it, not that the ad was interesting, but the idea was, so I kept the contact), portable charger/spare battery for my iPhone (I’ve got two of these to rotate), earphones (essential), a black pen (very essential, everyone should at least carry a pen in their bag), my wallet (which is actually a clutch by itself and deserves and entire post by itself.), a mysterious box (it used to hold a pack of playing cards).

And that’s how flat the clutch is when empty. Amazing isn’t it?

So what’s in your bag?

Much Love,

Karen.

First Outfit Post from Karen J

I went out for Dinner the other day and in the last minute rush of it all, I came up with this (and had time to snap before I left). I like!

This was the outfit I had wanted to wear, what I actually did wear is a little varied. I wore black sparkly flats instead of my immitation Jeffery Campbell wedges because I was going out with my mother who is already only up to my shoulders, wearing wedges would have made me two heads taller.

Outfit Sources:

  • Top: A thrift store in Romania
  • Skirt: From Clothes & People
  • Belt: Came with another dress I’d bought from Pull & Bear
  • Clutch: From MDS Collections
  • Wedges: A Spree from Melissa2KS
  • Flats: From the basement of Far East Plaza

The key piece here is obviously the skirt, the outfit is simple, you might even laugh at me for even thinking of wanting to post this up here. But I like the skirt, and it’s an easy to wear piece, yet it’s exactly the kind of thing most girls would shun.

I bought the skirt, knowing I desperately wanted it: I wanted to possess it, but I didn’t know if I would ever wear it. But so far so good, I’ve worn it twice, and that’s pretty awesome.

Overall, I’m happy with this outfit, in fact, it was too easy.

Like, love or hate? Comment tanks yous!

Love,
Karen J.

panda hair ties, they make you feel 10.

I brought out my Panda Hair Ties which I bought in Bangkok, and decided to. wear them.
holy. I don’t know how I summoned the courage to even step out of the house lol.

I love them though, they really make me feel about 10 years old.
and of course everyone on the street took me absolutely seriously with hair like this. obviously. how could they not?

again, my camera is crap but this is what I wore my Pandas out with.

my baseball jacket is LOVE, its super versatile simply because it IS A BASEBALL JACKET, meaning its so damn casual you could wear it with everything.
I got it in Paris *insert SmugFace*

army shorts from BKK go well with a normal white tank.

I’m lucky I don’t work in the corporate world.

outfit post.

my camera sucks testicles, it amazes me how all these pictures were taken by the same camera. but oh well.

I was on my way out the other day (realistically this was about 3 months ago) and just snapped what I was wearing.

I really don’t wear mid drifts all that often cause being a girl, I think I’m fat. its genetic. nothing we can do about it. sorry.

my glasses are worth a giggle from all my friends cause they have no lenses. as I have (insert boasting tone here) perfect eyesight, I find it super annoying when there are lenses, they kind of distort my vision.

my mid drift crop jacket/top, I got it from camden town in London for 10 pounds. I love the print, almost victorian.
when I first saw it I thought it was gorgeous, but I was abit concerned about looking like a hip-hop wannabe. throwing on glasses and shorts, I think I managed to not look too much like a poser.

LOVE necklace is from claire’s I think, from the kid’s section (I’m so hipster yeah.)
pretty bunny stud with moving legs, I got from hongkong from those stores with like a trillion stud options.
hellokitty with hipster glasses stud, I got from claire’s as well. I’m super sad cause I lost one side while I was in Thailand. serves me right for bringing my favorite pair of earrings on holiday.

panda ring from accessorizes, cost me a wooping 6 euros for a piece of plastic. but it is adorable so well worth it regardless. I wear it so often its lost abit of its nose paint.
my nails are painted pelican gray from china glaze.
I looked high and low for a gray polish and I absolutely love this shade from china glaze. 😀 I also have a crackle version me thinks, got to dust that one off and use it.
