Prepping for Fall+ Halloween

Hello lovelies!

I know I've had my blog a little abandoned, but it's been 2 months since I don't have a computer. I have only been able to use my Dad's computer, boyfriend's or my job's computer when I have a chance. Thus it's quite difficult to blog. So I guess today I will show you a few things I've bought.
I bought the black ballerina flats I've been wanting for a while. They look so chic, I have gotten complements on them. They really look like pointe shoes! The only thing I don't like so much is that they don't have a lot of cushion, so I can't really use them to go out on a long walk.

Lately I've been having a love and hate relationship with Forever21, more of hate to be honest. It used to be my one stop shop because I could always find something pretty there. But lately I hate their stuff. It's like their clothes are for a female version of G-Dragon. You know, lots of black, with studs, spikes, bright colors, the "SWAG" and "West Coast" shirts. Not really something I like to wear myself.

I did find a few things online though, but I had to dig through the website.

I found this pullover for only $10. I like the bows in the back.

Also found this overall dress. I see this kind of dress is really popular in the Japanese magazines this fall. Apparently black and white is big for this season.

Also on found this jewellery box for only $5. It's super bad quality though. It's very fragile, and who ever painted it did a not so good job.

I'm really liking the preppy look right now. I think it looks more mature, classy but still has a bit of cuteness. I'm especially liking outfits like this.




I had not realized this, but Halloween is only a few days ago, and I have not bought my costume.
I decided I'm going to be Marie Antoinette. Since watching the movie  I had been wanting to dress up as Marie Antoinette for a while, but for some reason I never bought the costume.

 So looking online I found this website Trashy. They have the most gorgeous costumes ever!
Like can I wear this everyday? Too bad they are around $300 each.

I've also been thinking if I should buy the white wig because it really completes the costume. I'm even considering the "hair ship" like Kirsten Dunst had in the movie.
It's really over the top, but that's what Marie Antoinette was all about!

  2. I like the preppy look too, the girl on the second picture looks really cute >u< I love her outfit! I think you should go for the Marie Antoinette inpired look because it looks awesome but the costumes are hella expensive T^T But if you're going to buy it you should make a post here on blogger! I would love to see photo's of it! :D
    And I really don't like the new hipster-studs style too, it gets way too mainstream lately :/ But I laughed when you sais female G-dragon haha xD LOL

  7. The ballet flats ... are they Chloe, or a less expensive version? My stepdaughter wants the Chloe ones soooo bad ... but I can't afford them.
