monochrome

  I dressed up like a shoegaze galaxy girl today (am I a total nerd or what?)

❣outfit details❣ 
t-shirt - Custom (c/o Snap Made) | skirt - Romwe | tights - c/o Galaxy Cauldron  | shoes - thrifted


I'm not huge on band t-shirts, but I do make exceptions for my faves, and Lush are a definite fave! ❤ I've been wanting to add a Lush tee to my collection for a while now, but finding an original going for less than $200+ is kind of impossible. Luckily, there are places like Snap Made where you can get custom printed T's for super cheap! I placed an order with them recently and was really happy with how mine turned out. The print is nice 'n bright and the t-shirt itself fits like a dream.


This wouldn't be a complete galaxy girl look without a pair of stardust tights. I definitely need to start wearing these more often, they're the BEST!

The ladies of Lush - *fangirl swoon*
I honestly cannot put into words just how much love I have for them & their music! Also, Miki is the ultimate style goals (she's actually the reason why I started collecting metallic/vinyl skirts!)

cloud nine

I seem to be channeling my inner Rainbow Brite a lot these days. This is one of two outfits I've worn in the past week that ended up being heavily inspired by one of my fave '80s cartoons! ❤

I've been wanting to base an outfit around this perfect rainbow patterned crop top for agessss, but due to the severe lack of primary/neutral tones in my wardrobe (seriously, it's basically made up of 95% pastels) I wasn't able to pull it off...until now! This bright red dress recently made its way into my closet and I immediately knew it'd be the perfect match for this top. ^___^

I kept the rest of my outfit fairly simple with white socks/shoes & my '60s mod vinyl belt. I couldn't resist throwing on some big pom pom earrings though! This outfit just wouldn't feel right without some obnoxiously bright accessories added to the mix.

❣outfit details❣ 
dress & shirt - c/o Oasap | belt - thrifted | earrings - Pop ❤ Tones | shoes - vintage Doc Martens

P.S. I still have an identical pair of these earrings up for grabs in the shop! Just so ya know~

spring in my step

 sock rainbow c/o Bergies
Today's post is going to be a little ~review~ of sorts. I was recently contacted by the super rad people over at Bergies - a NYC based shop that specializes in quirky cute & cruelty-free socks - and was asked if I'd like to try out some of their merch. You guys already know how much I love novelty socks (& their shop is basically novelty sock heaven), so I couldn't resist replying with a big YES! Here's how my experience with them went...

My order arrived super quick (around 5 days after I placed it, including processing time!) and came wrapped up in the cutest packaging ever. It's so nice to see a company take this much care with their orders, it really makes you feel like you're getting your money's worth!

Naturally, I couldn't resist picking out the loudest & brightest patterns that their shop has to offer. (●ゝω・●) At first I couldn't decide which ones to order (having so many pattern/color combos to pick from can be a bit overwhelming!), but eventually I was able to settle on some nice polka dot, stripe, and vinyl record patterned pairs. The socks themselves are all super nice quality: I find that novelty socks can sometimes be hit or miss in terms of comfort & durability, but these all feel really plush and comfy on the feet. I know I'll be getting tons of wear out of these this Spring/Summer! ☼

Overall, Bergies gets an A+++ from me. Fellow sock lovers, be sure to check them out when you get a chance! ❤
