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, creatively & emotionally, 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・) ❤

think pink

It's that time of year again where I find myself *very reluctantly* throwing on a pair of pants because it's just too damn cold out to wear anything else. (; ̄д ̄) Luckily, the small collection of pants that I have in my wardrobe are all obnoxiously bright or covered in stripes and polka dots, so it's not a total bore wearing them. And even though I've given in slightly to practical ~winter weather~ dressing, I still can't bring myself to put my platform shoes in storage just yet! I braved the icy streets in these today & didn't die, I feel like I should get a medal or something. (ゝω・)

❣outfit details❣
sweater - ASOS | pants - Tripp NYC (forever ago) | sweetheart socks - c/o Oasap | shoes - eBay

I'm sensing a bit of a theme with my recent online purchases...pink, pink, and more pink! The pouch and pins are from the latest, greatest MILKBBI collection. The donut socks, which aren't strictly pink but whatever, are from Oasap. I also bought this total beaut of a record player as an early xmas present to myself. I had a hard time choosing which color/finish I wanted (turquoise, pink, or black & white polka dots) but ultimately I went with the pink. I just couldn't resist it! And now I finally have something to play all of my Nina Hagen records on. (ノ∀`♥)

still a rookie

✸ Exciting News ✸ I finally received a copy of Rookie Yearbook Three in the mail this morning! It's taken me a while to get my hands on one of these, but after flipping through the first few pages I could tell right away that it was definitely worth the wait. It's basically 358 pages of pure eye candy & good reads ~ I'm so in love with it! (ʃƪ ˘ ³˘)

My finger-knitted scarf DIY is also included in the book and I'm really pleased with how it turned out in print. (●´ω`●) I don't wanna get all sappy on you guys, but it truly is an honor to have my work featured alongside so many other talented artists & writers in a book as inspiring as this one. I want to send a massive thanks to Tavi and everyone at Rookie for making this a reality for me! If you haven't picked up a copy yet, go do so now! I promise you won't regret it. ❤
