The Mystery of the Ombré Tights

A few weeks ago, while skimming my Tumblr dash, I came across a photo of a pair of ombré tights. It was love at first sight and I had to know more. Luckily (sarcasm) THE SOURCE ON TUMBLR WAS WRONG (I love you, Tumblr, but this happens all to often). With a little investigation, though, I was able to track them down. They're sold on an Etsy shop called bzr and hand dyed by Parsons graduate, Tiffany Ju. From what I can tell, they come in four colours, navy, coal, sunset and fuschian violet (my personal favourite). 

What do you think of the ombré trend


All Things Must Pass

 I kind of look like a gremlin in these photos because I walked home in the rain/hail...

I am wearing another item that my grandma brought back for me from Florida. I love the print of this skirt so much since it is very similar to paisley, which I adore.
 You may be wondering what that heck that orangey-brown stuff on my hand is...well, its henna. Henna is a dye made from the leaves of the henna plant. It can be used to create tattoos that fade after about a week, like mine, to dye wool and other materials or even to dye hair! Check out these henna tattoos that make mine look not so great:

I got this lovely triangle pendant necklace from LYLIF, a wonderful online boutique with an especially wicked selection of trendy jewelry! I love how chunky it is and you can't quite see in these shots, but it has a cool texture to it. Its almost aztec-ish! I'm excited to wear it in the summer with crochet tops and cut-off shorts (or anything for that matter!).

Welcome to the Machine

Wearing: hat-H&M; jacket and top-thrifted by my grandma; skirt-thrifted; heels-Jeffrey Campbell Tardy

My grandmother has returned from Florida and brought with her a massive thrift haul for me! The top and jacket in this outfit are among my favourite pieces she picked up, but there's a lot more where they came from! I may or may not do a video...I can't make any promises, though...

I woke up this morning to an email from Shelby of The Style Pages. She made a post about my blog and it is just so sweet! Check it out, HERE. Also, her co-blogger/best friend, Miranda, has amazing style! Just look at her:



Sassy Olive

 I LOVE THIS NAIL POLISH. It's called Sassy (by Revlon), which is amazing in itself, but the colour is fab, too! 
Wearing: hat-H&M; top-c/o Tell Her You Saw Me; bustier (underneath), shorts and boots-thrifted; clutch-c/o Milanoo


Denim Daze

Wearing: hat-H&M; bustier, belt and jeans-thrifted; flatforms-Gap; bracelet-c/o Oasap; ring-vintage; sunglasses-Pure by Alfred Sung

As I mentioned a while ago (check out this post), I am in love with underwear as outerwear. I had been on the hunt for a black bustier and was luck enough to find this one at Goodwill a while back! I think it will be ideal for spring and summer! Also, get a load of this studded bracelet from Oasap! I really love it and I feel like a biker or something when I wear it...

I have some exciting news, too! I applied a couple of months ago to become the style muse of a comic series called "And To Be Loved." Well, I was chosen and you can seen my style on the character Claire, here! I think its pretty cool!
