Latest buys & outfits

Hey there :D!
It's been quite a while, huh?
I apologize: this last month has been quite rough. My dad broke his leg while riding a horse; he was operated on last friday, but he has spent these last weeks on a sofa because he couldn't get up - occasionally we were able to get him to sit on his wheelchair, but he was really uncomfortable in it, so I ended up staying at home almost 24/7 to take care of him.
Also, I've been translating quite a lot of stuff <3 but I'll talk about it next time, maybe. Today's topics MUST be shallow XD!

I'll start with my order from EMP. I ordered a red minidress and a flannel blouse.

[I'll show you a picture of it worn when it'll be fixed]

But unfortunately the dress came with a hole. What with my dad being in hospital and stuff, I totally forgot about that and couldn't ask for a refund in time. I've already asked my grandma if she can fix it for me and she said yes, so it's not that big of a deal, except that I would've liked to ask them for a smaller size, 'cause, as usual, the M size fits my boobs and my hips, but it's huge on my XS waist. It's becoming a serious issue for my online shopping, you know O_o

And this is the flannel blouse. The quality's quite good, I have no complaints about it. I just wish things looked so oversized on me as they do on skinny bloggers! Gah.

Please pardon the quality of the last picture XD I love my new bedroom but it's a little bit dark, not a good place to take pictures in.

And then there's my order from The Gothic Catwalk <3
Here you can see the slashed leggings. They fit perfectly, but the fabric is quite soft, I thought they could keep me warm but I guess I'll only be able to wear them in spring. Luckily, last saturday the weather was a bit nicer than it has been lately, so I got the chance to wear them and to show you another outfit <3

Quite nu-goth huh? But I don't mind it. And there are two versions of it!
Last saturday I went to the mall and found an awesome studded cap, and a not-so-awesome studded bag - but I needed it to be quite lame because I plan to take it to classes. I can't use my Demonia bag on a daily basis, it gets damaged (it already has). So I needed a bag that was so cheap and ugly that I wouldn't have minded if it got destroyed. Here it is, in all its ugliness.
(Actually it's not even that bad XD)

I'm the kind of person who wears their stuff the moment after they paid for it. I mean, why should I wait? "Here" and "now" are the perfect place and time to put on my new purchases.

I could easily be mistaken for a 13 years old. Last month a woman at the gym thought I was seventeen, and I wasn't even wearing a cap.

And then there's the order from The Gothic Catwalk!
I'll start from the jacket <3
I only have one complaint about this item: the fabric. It's quite cheap and shiny; in the pictures it looked like it was made of a thicker fabric. Which kind of bothers me because I've been planning to wear it with my Mollflander dress by Burleska all along, hoping it could keep me warm enough to wear in in autumn at least, but it can't.

[Pictures on the website]

It's actually made of satin; it's still ok, but not exactly what I would've expected. By the way, it has a wonderful design: it's corseted, it has ruffles and lace, it fits me quite good (that's because I took an S size: too small for my boobs and too large on my waist, but since it's open on the front my boobs are not constricted on a too small place).

[Actual jacket. As you can see, it's quite shiny.]

Aaand this top/blouse. It's cute, but there's still my usual problem with sizes: it's ginormous on my waist. I need to ask my grandma for help here too.

I can't wait to sport this outfit, very Chloe inspired (I mean Chloe from Apartment 23. Never forgotten.)

Chloe - Apt. 23

And I guess that's all! I wanted to show you my new Monster High Doll and my new Bodyline wig too, but I don't want this entry to be too long XD also, I haven't got any pictures of them yet.
Before saying goodbye, I hope you don't mind if I remind you that I'm still selling my clothes, if some of you are interested :) feel free to ask any questions in the comments!
Thank you for reading, and have a nice sunday :D!

  1. Typical waistproblem :P that's why I really love dresses with shirring!
    The flannel blouse looks good on you, I have always sort of wanted one like that but every time I'm going to by one I'm not sure if it really fits my style :'D

    The jacket is very pretty but I agree with you it looked very different on the website pictures!

    1. Well, flannel blouses are not hard to match if your goal is a grungy style :) all you need is: a black t-shirt (possibly a band t-shirt :D), a denim miniskirt/denim shorts, tights (fishnets may be even better) and Doc Martens. You may even add legwarmers, I didn't because my leg are already short enough XD and of course, a shit ton of make-up XD
      Actually though I took inspiration from one of "Les Revenants"' characters, Lena. Except that she's like 20/cms taller than me and she's a gorgeous redhead lol.

      Yea, that jacket looks a bit like a carnival costume :/ and it was expensive, too!

  2. l'outfit con il maglione con le croci è carinissimo *v* mi piacciono anche molti dei tuoi nuovi acquisti!

    1. Grazie mille <3 uso tantissimo quel maglione, è uno dei miei preferiti :D!
