OOTD; Grandparents, Hair, And Excessive Spending

Gray top from H&M; Neutral skirt from H&M (same one from last time);
Black blazer by Only; Black tights from American Apparel;
Earrings and ring by Alexis Bittar; Necklace by Pyrrah;
Wrap bracelet by Humanity (not like you can see); Black flats from Aldo (not pictured);
'Suzi Says Feng Shui' nail polish by OPI;

So I cut my hair; it was a fucking ordeal.
The girl cut it and messed up, so i had to come back after the salon had closed and she still didn't listen to what I wanted. It's not exactly what I wanted, but I like it.
Now it's just a case of getting used to it.

This what I wore to work, then to my cousins for dinner with my grandparents, who are visiting from Alberta.

Besides the arrival of my elderly kin, I bought two (!!!) pairs of Alexis Bittar earrings.

The black ones I've wanted for forever, and are from his fall/winter collection, I think, and the rose gold ones just came out this spring. Let it be known that this is the most I've ever paid for jewellery (I used birthday money though, so in reality...), but I'm so trilled with them both I don't care.
You'll see my wearing them frequently, let me assure you.

As much fun as I had buying these, and I did, I'm in such a fashion slump clothes-wise; I don't know what was to wear anymore.
In high school I went from one extreme to another; in tenth grade I had bight pink hair and snakebite piercings, and wore thick black eyeliner and covered myself in skull print. Then somewhere along the line I started wearing classic red lipstick, black dresses, heels, and Chanel perfume.
I don't know when this change started, maybe with the purchase of my firs pair of heels, which I still wear, but it happened and I switched my bedazzled skull necklace for a vintage printed scarf.

Now I'm somewhere in the middle, but cutesy dresses clash with my short hair, and I'm done with the whole teenage punk look.
I need to make an inspiration board, study some magazines, and refine my style.
I hate my closet right now, and that's a horrible way to feel.

I can always take solace cosmetics, though; this weeks nail polish?

'Suzi Says Feng Shui' from OPI's Hong Kong collection. It looks a bit brighter in the bottle, so I was a little disapointed, but this and 'Jade Is The New Black' (which a coworker bought after seeing on me, bringing my total of 'having people buy nail polish because of me' to six, that I know of) have quickly become my go to colours. These get the ladies' attention; everyday someone stops me and asked what I'm wearing.

Where do you get inspiration? It doesn't have to be fashion-related; when you're creativity runs out and you stall, what inspires you to keep moving?



  1. The photos don't really show us the hair enough, but from what I can see I love it!

  2. Georgia Darling, when you return to me in the summer you will see it.
    As our hanging out will commence.
