I Wore This! 25/06/14

Hello!

Today I’m bringing you a super cool outfit post from Wednesday!

I’ve been toying with the idea of doing outfit posts again, part of me always feels something of a phony, as I don’t really see myself as all that stylish, but I do enjoy putting fun little looks together, and it was always nice to document those looks previously!

Here is what I wore on Wednesday!

You may all notice that I now have a fringe, and that the rest of my hair is ridiculously long, oh and that the ends are green… basically it’s super different, but I love it like this more than any other hairstyle I have had! It was done by the amazing Rachel at the Leeds branch of Philips Hair Academy, and I can’t recommend her enough!

Onto the outfit! I love this one as it makes me feel like a super cute slime princess!

My dungaree dress and scrunchie were both from the shop I manage in Leeds, Pop Boutique. The dress was £18 and the scrunchie was £3.50, both absolute bargains!

My T-Shirt was from a Topshop sale, about a year ago, but you could always opt for something like this from Etsy seller Killer Condo, and use any of the hundreds of ombre clothing dye tutorials on Youtube for the desired effect! The gist of it is, mix up a tub of dye, dip your garment in from the bottom, and hold it in the dye in sections, moving up the shirt. This will mean the dye is more concentrated at the bottom, as that section will have been in the longest. (okay, so I totally didn’t explain that very well!)

My leggings are trusty H&M. I did used to opt for Primark leggings, as they are dirt cheap. But with a reduced price comes reduced quality. quite often the Primark leggings just looked semi transparent, and that really isn’t the look I am going for.

I must admit, however, that my shoes and socks are from Primark. The shoes were £8, which is a good job because they are the stupidest purchase I have ever made. I don’t know when I ever thought I would be able to keep white canvas shoes clean.

Finally, my jewellery is just stuff that I have had forever. The collar has been around since I was about 15! I know for a fact that these collars can be bought in any good heavy metal/goth type shops for about a fiver. My long necklace just has a simple fake gem on it (which I’ve just realised you can’t see!), and I found this similar one from Etsy seller Hanging By A Thread, for just over £16!

Thanks for checking out my outfit post! I’ll post more from now on, and if you have any questions for me, feel free to ask in the comments below!

Mini Mouse Dress!! ^_^

Become a fully fledged member of the Disney Club!

I discovered Devowevo a while ago, but back then I think they had a different name. They do all kinds of adorable dresses with ponies, owls, rainbows and all sorts on them! This dress with Minnie’s grinning face is perfect for a night out! I would wear it with nice thick black tights and maybe some crazy sculptural heels like these.

Pastel Bow Goodness!

Sugar sweeten your hair!

For all you pastel lovers out there! (me!) I’ve found this amazing crochet hairbow complete with sugary sweet inspired heart decorations! It’s from a seller I have just discovered, Sugar Junkie Shop, and their name doesn’t disappoint . If you want all things candified you’ll want to check them out! I would wear this with a pastel dress and white tights! 

Rainbow Tights! ❤

Wear the rainbow!

Okay, I’m obsessed with tights… just think of all the possibilities! Like these wonderful pastel rainbow tights by Virivee. Hand dyed and 50 Dernier means they are truly unique and will last for a fair while. These would be perfect for anyone keen to pop a little bit of subtle cute into an outfit. Why not whip out a cute black dress and doll it up with these? How about this one?!

Yum Yum Nails! 🙂

Kawaii Claws! 

One thing that might not be obvious to buy from Etsy are nails… But they ARE essential in looking adorable over the festive season! These Yum Yums nails are handpainted by nail artist Mkittynails in Japan! So you will be buying genuine kawaii goodness from the land that invented cute! There are more than just these to choose from, and jazzing up your nails will last longer than just one night, why not treat yourself to this sugar sweet manicure for Christmas day and get out of doing the washing up! ^_^

Sweet Snuggly Sweater!

Boys need some ‘cute’ too this Christmas!

Who said that lovely things were just for girls? Any fun loving fella would appreciate this sweet sweater from Rogue Retro! On the other hand, any gorgeous girly could wear this too in a casual big-n-baggy sort of way with leggings and heels for cosy drinks with friends. Everyone needs a Christmas jumper so why not make it a wonderfully adorable one?! I would wear this with a big red bow, like this one!
