coquet coquette

Coquet coquette, you know I won’t forget
How you kissed me strange to prove you were mythical
– “Coquet, Coquette“, Of Montreal

If there were ever a band designed to make you throw on something lacy and swing your hips around the office, it would be Of Montreal. I can never sit still when I put their music on (and I suggest you follow suit!).

What I Wore: Black peplum mini dress with lacy sleeves from China, black caged heels from Siam Square, a multi-string necklace of vintage pearls, and “16 Rouge Roxane” from YSL Rouge Pur Couture.

London Fog

She’s a caged animal
London by night
Crashing lights and cymbals
Queens of twilight
Noisettes, “Sister Rosetta”

London was pretty much encapsulated by fog today. Feeling all Hogwarts on me.

Foggy black t-shirt – worn as dress – from Target, foggy wood/leather platforms from Buffalo London, foggy braided bracelets from Cara Collection (my current obsession).

Sparkly Blazer

No one can say nothing,
Which I guess means they’ll say something,
But I won’t be around.
I’ll be in my tree,
Living free,
As any child would wanna be.
– “Living in a tree”, Priscilla Ahn

Hola, chiquita bonitas. Welcome to my bedhead. Speaking of hair, after an extraordinarily gruesome dye job (no names named) which caused major damage to my mane, going blonde as originally intended was completely ruled out. Alternative to blonde? Some not-so-harsh dark hair dye to compliment some hair rehabilitation.

Today I’m wearing: sparkly silver blazer from Forever 21 (a few years ago) over a translucent white cardigan that I left in brown fabric dye for roughly 7 minutes, stretch-fit leather pants from Thailand, and some handmade Lita-esque platform boots.
