polly pocket

I totally felt like Polly Pocket in this outfit, hence the title! I think this had a lot to do with the fact that my skirt is made from *pastel pink* vinyl and kind of resembles those rubber Polly Pocket doll clothes from the late '90s (anyone else remember them?) This probably doesn't come as a surprise, but I always secretly wished I could have life-size versions of those outfits for myself. ha-ha (。´▽`。)

❣outfit details❣
sweater - thrifted | skirt - Missguided | tights - gift from Kaia | shoes - Gap Kids

A moodboard for what I had in mind when I got dressed this morning. I'm including Jem in here too because she is pretty much the Queen of Pastels, and I also can't wear lavender & pink together without feeling like I'm a member of the Holograms. (・ε-。)

Accessories for today included my favorite iridescent glitter ring (which was a gift from Simona ❤) & a vintage Polly Pocket necklace. ☆ミ

These glittery pom pom shoes were a lucky find from the Gap (of all places!) They were originally from the kids department, but I was able to snag a pair in the largest size available & they ended up being a perfect fit. I'm so in love!

I would be lying if I said that they didn't totally remind me of Meadham Kirchhoff too. (YES, everything is about MK with me. Not sorry! ~fangirl4lyfe~)

♡ do-it-yourself: embossed fabric ♡

It's been f o r e v e r since I last posted about ~crafty~ stuff on here, so today I decided that I'd get back into the swing of things with a new DIY! Embossing fabric with rubber stamps has actually been on my to-do list for a while, but it wasn't until after a recent trip to the thrift store (where I found this velvet crop top & daisy stamp ❤‿❤) that I finally had all the supplies I needed to try it out! Here's how it went...

a wolf in lamb's clothing

This was my ~mourning the absence of Meadham Kirchhoff~ look from last week. Their collections have made such an impact on me that the reality of them not showing at LFW this season left me feeling really sad. As a pick-me-up of sorts, I got all dressed up in some of my favorite clothes (glittery Meadham Kirchhoff tights included!) and snapped these pics as my own personal tribute to my favorite designing duo. ❤

❣outfit details❣
dress - Iron Fist c/o FreestyleXtreme | tights - Meadham Kirchhoff | shoes - thrifted | purse - c/o Jump From Paper

Isn't this bag incredible? Every time I wear it out I always have at least one person come up to me and ask "Is that purse even real?" ha-ha! Despite the fact that it looks like it popped right out of a comic book, it's fully-functional as a purse and is a lot roomier on the inside than you'd think. o.~

I really love the pattern on this dress - it looks a lot like a Meyercord Cuties design at first glance, but if you look a little closer you'll see that the lambs are wearing punky spiked chokers and harnesses. The pink/red/gray color scheme also makes it a perfect match for my glitter tights. ^_^

I continued the glittery accessories theme with these vintage button earrings that I thrifted for 25¢. They have bits of black and silver tinsel embedded into them. ✴

Adorable prints & pleats aside, let's face it - the best part about this dress is that it has pockets! (´∀`*)

judy jetson

Hey everyone ヾ(^∇^) I can't believe it's been more than two months since my last post! I ended up going on a bit of an internet hiatus starting in December, but now I'm back! And I've got a shiny new (space lady) outfit to share with you. 

❣outfit details❣
dress & purse - Oasap | tights - Meadham Kirchhoff x Topshop (gift from Kailey ❤) | boots - thrifted

I'm so into the color combo/pattern on these tights! It kinda reminds me of something you'd see in a 1960s comic or cartoon, like the Jetsons. They also match my Vari-Vue eye ring perfectly! I've been on the hunt for a blinking eye ring ever since I was a kid (blame it on a certain Disney movie) and was absolutely over the moon when I finally found this one on eBay. It looks even cooler in action:

Wink wink  o.~
And here's a better look at my badge! I did a bit of green/blue marbling on the top to make it look planet-esque and then added some Jeremy Scott inspired lettering to match. I think it's one of the best I've ever made.

❣ five years in six outfits ❣

In honor of Self-Constructed Freak turning ✸five✸ last month, I've decided to mark this anniversary with a post featuring my favorite outfits from every year that I've been blogging. Getting to look back on all of my different outfits and style phases, even though it's a little (okay, a LOT) embarrassing, is actually kind of cool. I really can't say that my taste in clothing has evolved all that much over the past five years, but I think I definitely have a better grasp on my personal style than I did when I first started blogging. I'm excited to see what the next five years will have in store for this blog...& my wardrobe, haha! (●ゝω・) ❤
