OOTDs: Crappy Phone Pics, pt 4

It has been so hot here recently. I’ve managed to put great outfits together for years but it’s so hot now, I keep wearing shorts and tank tops so I don’t die of heat stroke or ruin my clothes with sweat. I’d do anything for a more reasonable temperature.

(Also I did promise last time that I wouldn’t post an OOTD now, but I changed my mind – and an explanation is to come next week.)

However, I was able to get in a few more OOTDs with reasonable outfits (actually, outfits I really like!):

Skirt by Iron Fist

Cardigan: Boohoo
Skirt: Iron Fist
Shoes: Unique Vintage

I was so excited to get my hands on this discontinued skirt by Iron Fist. I really love the material and how the dark grey colour is different from a lot of skirts in my wardrobe but still goes with a lot of things I have. Paired with the shoes and cardigan, this look what quite elegant but I think I can pull off other moods with this skirt.

It was so incredibly hot on this day but I decided to wear a new top I got for the heat and pair it with this lovely skirt that I got from Double Trouble. I was really drawn to it since I have a spider web skirt but it’s all black, and this one has white but it’s not the same print as some of my other clothing. Wow, does that make me sound like I own too many spider web pieces? I guess so… but oh well.

I have a lot of updates that I’d like to share, but I decided to dedicate it to its own blog post that will be posted within the week. Until then!

OOTDs: Basic Blacks

I’ve been rather basic with my outfits lately but I wanted to showcase some of the new things I’ve gotten so I decided on another OOTD for the week. Next week, I think I’m going to do something I haven’t done before.

Boohoo and Emerald Angel
Shirt: Boohoo
Skirt: Emerald Angel

I was so excited to get this shirt. I initially ordered it off the Boohoo website and my order was cancelled since it was out of stock, and then I managed to buy it on Ebay. It’s so simple but so pretty and makes me feel like a queen. So far I’ve paired it with my spiderweb skirt but honestly, I like it against my lipstick colours more than other clothes. Is that a weird thing to say?

Lilacat Designs, Trickery, and CJs Jewelry Shoppe

Choker: Lilacat Designs
Cat Ring: Trickery
Celtic Ring: CJs Jewelry Shoppe

As for my jewellery, I usually try to have a theme to what I wear, but this time there was none. I wore my cat ring because my cat’s been ill, poor baby.

Dress by VioletStarCreations
Dress: VioletStarCreations
Cardigan: Ebay

It may seem simple but I’m sooo excited about this dress because the brand that makes it uses organic and recycled materials to make their clothing; this dress in particular is made of hemp. How awesome is that? I wish that more companies were eco-friendly with their clothing and jewellery, or other crafts.

Necklace: Ebay

IdleHansShop, Art of Adornment
Ring: IdleHandShop
Bracelet: Art of Adornment

I wore some of my favourite jewellery out too. There’s no theme, but I really love some of these pieces and I got some compliments on them too!

Again, I’m hoping that next week I’ll have put something together that’s a bit different from what I’ve done already. Until then!
