ootd // mod honey bee


bee print dress c/o Black Five
Deandri Harriet platform creepers

I'm seriously loving the mod fit of this dress. It's been a while since I used to dress "vintage style," but I'm slowly beginning to incorporate bits and pieces back into my wardrobe. This dress is also super bright, which is not normally something I'm into but this print was too cute.

It feels weird to be pairing a light, flowy crop top with a thick knit skirt, but the weather is currently permitting it so I'll go for it I guess.

ootd // pastel purple dip dye

purple dip dye hair

lavender dip dye hair

porcupine quill necklace

wide brim wool hat c/o Romwe
purple dip dye hair extension c/o
gingham peplum top c/o Oasap
porcupine quill necklace c/o 9th & Elm
Forever 21 high waisted jeans
TopShop Arcade boots

I've always wanted to dye my hair an unconventional color but was always too scared since my hair is really fragile and thin and it just didn't seem worth damaging it with bleach and such. I never really considered hair extensions until I saw this perfect pastel purple dip dye from Hair Trade. I'm really happy with the quality and how well it blends with my hair color and length. You can definitely consider me a hair extension addict now, haha. I'm totally eyeing this turquoise dip dye exntension next.

Also, just a PSA: these high waisted Forever 21 jeans are only $12.90. I was seriously struggling with trying to find high waisted jeans under $80 that weren't from Urban or AA and finally found my holy grail jeans. Good job, Forever 21. Very pleased. So pleased that I also picked them up in a blue wash.

Kawaii Box September 2014 unboxing

kawaii box september 2014

So I've come to the conclusion that there's now a subscription box for everything you could ever want. Kawaii things being no exception. Who doesn't want a box full of cute Asian products in their mailbox every month? Kawaii Box is here to do just that. Kawaii Box costs $18.90 per month with free shipping and you can find their website here. I tried to find prices on all of the items, but I couldn't find a lot of these things for sale online, so all values are approximate. Thanks to Kawaii Box for sending this over for me to review!

Here's my YouTube review if you don't feel like reading. Otherwise there's more after the jump!

ootd // peasant blouse and Skechers


vintage blouse and rings
American Apparel pique circle skirt
thigh highs c/o Oasap
Laramie 2 boots c/o Skechers

If there's one category of clothing that's been severely neglected in my daily wardrobe as of late, it's button down shirts. I'm glad it's cooling down so I can finally wear my long sleeved ones since I guess I don't own that many short sleeved button downs. I picked up this particular one from Goodwill. It was originally $5.99, but I talked them down to $0.99 since it had a rather large tear up the side which I easily mended. So, moral of the story, buy your button down shirts from thrift stores and never be afraid to ask for a discount on damaged items. Damaged clothing items usually go in the trash at a lot of thrift stores sooo you don't have to feel guilty about asking for a discount on damaged items that accidentally make it out to the floor!

Since the shirt is pretty feminine with all of it's lacy and embroidery details and such, I decided to pair it with my new combat boots Skechers so kindly sent over. I was a bit worried that these would be super heavy and bulky since I did find them in the utility boot section, but they're quite the opposite! They're actually pretty lightweight and comfortable. I also appreciated the slight heel for the height boost. I'm super excited to wear these for winter since the bottoms are pretty rubbery and they seem like they would be good on ice. These are a really nice alternative to Doc Martens since I feel like they're a bit more flattering.

The boots can be found on Skechers' website here and in store at your local Skechers retailer.

cloud print skater dress c/o
Sock Dreams pastel pink thigh highs

Confession: I used to be a total Black Milk junkie. I used to hoard their leggings and then guess what? I'd never wear them. I've worn Black Milk leggings on this blog once. I guess I just had a really difficult time incorporating leggings into my daily wardrobe since I mostly just stick to jeans, skirts and dresses. I recently sold off my Black Milk collection since the leggings are way too expensive to have lying around and never be wearing. That doesn't mean I'm no longer drawn to crazy prints though. So when I found this almost perfect Black Milk dupe of their cloud dress on Tmart, I had to get it. I'm actually really impressed by the quality of Tmart dresses considering it was a $15 dress with free shipping. The material isn't see-through at all and the print is pretty vibrant. I was a little worried that it would be too short since it's a one size fits all kind of deal, but it turned out to be the perfect length. I decided to pair it with a vintage holographic eye necklace. It's unfortunately really difficult to photograph, but I found a similar one on eBay if you're interested in taking a look! Also, this is the one time I'm not wearing pastel nail polish and wearing an all pastel outfit, hahaha.
