OOTDs: Crappy Phone Pics, pt 3

My darling grandmother suggested we go on a trip and now I’ve been too busy planning one to even notice all the negative energy of my life lately. My dad permanently broke my camera, which I’m uber pissed about, but I’m getting a new one for my birthday. However, that’s in late July so in the meantime, I guess more crappy phone pics will have to suffice.

Dress by Build Your Empire

Cardigan Boohoo

I really like this dress because it adds a pop of colour to my look but it also has the bats, which add a touch of spookiness. This piece is perfect for days when I don’t feel like putting too much effort into my outfit – especially hot days when I don’t want to layer – because the dress stands easily alone.

Vintage Top and Skirt

Top: Vintage
Skirt: Vintage
Cardigan Boohoo

I really like this outfit because I love its components. The top, which is actually a 60s bathing suit, has such a cute lace-up detail. I wear it a lot but instead of pairing it with a normal skirt, I found this lovely double-tier velvet skirt that’s simple but still adds a bit of interest to the look. The picture isn’t too clear but the cardigan is a bit sheer, a look I’m also fond of. If you want an outfit you love, it all starts with the individual components.

So I know the next month and a half are going to be filled with crappy phone pics. I have some lipstick swatches I’d like to do but would rather wait until I have my nice camera to better capture the colours. However I will have a (maybe?) interesting blog post for you next week that isn’t just an OOTD. Until then ★

OOTDs: Crappy Phone Pics, pt 2

I’m sorry that I’ve been a bit depressing lately, but I feel like my life is being weighed down by negative thoughts and I’m in turn twisting my emotions in an attempt to free myself. I’d been doing so well and now I’m slipping again.

My camera is permanently broken – yet another downer – so I need to buy a new one soon. I apologise because I intended this to be a more professional blog and here I am taking these crappy phone pics just to have content for you guys. Please forgive me ❤

Tights by Tattoo Socks

Dress: Moonmaiden Gothic
Cardigan: Boohoo
Tights: Tattoo Socks
Shoes: Amazon

I love these tights so much and they’ve actually gotten a tonne of compliments! They’re great because I often wear a lot of basic black clothing but these add a nice spooky touch to whatever I’m wearing. Apologies that you can’t really see my dress, but it’s just a basic black velvet dress and a knit cardigan.

Skirt by Vintage Galeria

Top: Moonboot Studios
Cardigan: Boohoo
Skirt: Vintage Galeria
Shoes: Amazon

I was so excited to get my hands on this skirt! I love the skeleton loteria print so much and it’s a unique and colourful addition to my wardrobe. I’ve actually worn it more often than I thought I would, so I’m quite happy with this buy.

I’ll hopefully have only one or two more Crappy Phone Pic posts before I get my hands on a new camera. I’m eyeing the newest version of the Canon Rebel, since my old camera was a first generation of the Rebel, but I’ll listen to any recommendations if you have any. Until next time ★

The Idleness

I haven’t been doing too well lately. Unemployment is really starting to worry me, especially since it’s been over a month now and I’ve gotten only two interviews. I thought getting a job with my lip piercings alone would be difficult, but even with my degree and experience, nobody even wants to consider me as an applicant. It really sucks to know I’m qualified for jobs and then not even be contacted for an interview. What’s worse is that a lot of these companies still have the job opening, and it’s like, why not give me a chance?? I’m sure a lot of my readers can relate.

On top of that, my grandfather died last week. He was an important person in my life and even though he went naturally, it still really sucks that he’s gone. I wish I’d gotten to spend more time with him, and it’s a bit surreal that he’s gone. It’s also nearing the anniversary of my uncle’s murder, which always opens old wounds that don’t seem to heal. In short, it’s been tough.

Everything just really sucks. I hate to be a downer but I thought I’d explain why I’ve been a bit MIA lately. I have been buying some new clothes (against my bank account’s will) so I’ll have some new outfits to wear and post about.

On a lighter note, I started a new collection on Etsy for vintage products that I like but aren’t my size. Be sure to check it out and follow when you can.

Hopefully I’ll blog next week with a happier subject. Until then
