Recent buys for Spring/ Identity crisis!

 Song for summer!// Let me love you- Lapalux (Mario Bootleg remix)

Recently it's been getting really really warm so I've banished my winter wardrobe into my draws and am thoroughly into Spring mode. Unfortunately my spring wardrobe didn't really exist up until recently because most of my clothes are either black or will make you die from heat stroke wearing them so I have had to buy some new stuff purely out of necessity so I went a bit nuts with online shopping.

I am trying really hard to ween myself off the colour black because I feel like I'm turning into a bit of a goth and that's not the direction I want to go in style wise.

I really want to be more colourful because I feel that suits my personality better also my face is naturally so miserable looking that wearing so much black might make people think I'm depressed. 
And as I'm 20 now, I kind of want to dress slightly more sophisticated 

With sophistication clearly not being in my mind, I bought this from Drop Dead Clothing on impulse.
For any of you not aware of the brand, it's usually favoured by young teens who fancy themselves as alternative but these eyeballs were literally staring into my soul and I knew I needed this dress.

Well at least it's not black!
I really like layering up clothing because I think a lot of clothes look really boring otherwise but because there is so much detail on the dress, you don't need to, and because it's sweltering outside, I'm better off not wearing a wrap! I'm going to need to think of some accessories and shoes to wear with it~

Eyeballs seem to be quite prominent trend in Japan from what I've seen.
 Dress in action! It's a little big, I might take it in at the waist

Some TV show in the background about cowboy builders I think

 The next thing I've been waiting on for over a months. It was a hard one. I have been obsessed with Givenchy's A/W11 collection ever since it first appeared so I had to get my hands on one of their t-shirts but being the poor student I am, I knew ebay would come to my aid.
It's not, it's fake. Thanks Korea!
What I've learned from my ebay travels is whatever designer brand you can buy real, some Korean ebay shop will have a fake of it if you look hard enough. it took some hunting but sure enough I found this.
The print isn't a replica, it's like "inspired"... good enough!
 I practically jumped for joy when I finally received it, the fabric is a lot better than I thought it would be! The first thing I usually do when i get new things is to play around with outfits. I just whacked this outfit together, it's not that brilliant though,
Puzzled over my seemingly large left thigh in the far right picture.... huurr :/
I'm still waiting on a couple of things to arrive in the post so I'll post about those when I get them!

Tomorrow, I'm off to Ananya's for a sleepover with the rest of my friends~ Wewt!

Also, if you haven't noticed it already, I'm having a wardrobe clear-out because my wardrobe is exploding and there is a lot of stuff that I don't wear anymore so check it out here or click 'SALE' in the top navigation bar. I'll be adding new things frequently, in the next few days I'll be putting up some gal magazines and brand clothing, mangas, shoes and a few other things. Later! x

  8. Loooove this post!
    Your recent buys are amazing.

    Remember how I told you I ordered the same top/dress? The bloody company had an error in their database so I had to re-order it, and I have to wait another couple of weeks to get it. Sooo sad!
