Piano Keys

Here's a piece I hadn't seen much off until I owned it; Piano Key Leggings.
I bought these along with a couple other older pairs recently. 
I really like the look of them, but I'm not sure it they suit me. Lately I've drifted more towards darker colours, plus every time I wear white I seem to spill something; so these probably aren't the best fit for me!
I can't deny they are very unique, a real statement piece! So I kept the rest of my outfit simple pairing them with a black top and my new Deandri boots!

Deandri Ginger


As you would already know if you follow my blog; these days it's all about Black Milk!
However my blog originally began due to my love of shoes; my first posts were all about my personal collection, new arrivals and shoes I loved, but did not yet own.
I used to buy frequently from Solestruck at the peak of my obsession; at the time Solestruck was the place to go for Jeffrey Campbell's, they had every pair I wanted and I always received great customer service.
My buying slowed around the time that Solestruck dropped down their new arrivals from Jeffrey Campbell, slowing selling out to just a few popular styles. It was a big disappointment for me as I loved shopping on Solestruck over all the other stockists.
It was of course Black Milk that tempted me back to Solestruck, when the new collab between Black Milk x Solestruck was released, I found myself on the website checking out all the new brands.
I found a couple of styles which I loved! One were these Deandri Ginger Platforms in black on black.
I remember seeing Deandri around quite a lot about a year ago, but the styles at the time were not really for me; lots of wooden heels. These of course still have the wooden heel, but in black rather than natural wood.
After I found these on the site, Black Milk's latest photoshoot came out; featuring these exact shoes! It was great to see them paired with the clothes I wear everyday, I ordered them pretty soon after that!
I emailed Solestruck and was told they probably wouldn't be getting them in again, so I had to size up, something I was a bit worried about, but turned out to not be such a big issue. The Ginger runs half a size small anyway so it was really only a half size too big which is nothing socks cant fix ;)
I love the style of these!! I'm really into all things black and witchy right now so these fit that perfectly!
I've worn them out once already. I found that they do squeak when I walk..hopefully something that will go away once they are worn in a bit.
They are very comfy though! Even with the 6.5inch heel. I'm used to wearing huge platforms anyway so these were no problem!

Ruby Red

This dress is one of those pieces that sat in my closet for ages, then when I wore it I fell in love.
I love red in general, so I don't know why it took me so long to wear this one. 
I bought it back when it was first released; along with all the other crystal dresses. 
I always seem to pair red with black and this outfit is no different; I love the combination.
I wore my Saxony wrap cardigan, this one can be worn a couple different ways but I like the shorter front best. 
I only recently placed my first order with Saxony and am so far really happy with their clothes! Some of the sizes fit quite large though!

Pearls & Lace

Shattered Glass Pearl Leggings; so lovely and shiny in person, so hard to capture in photos. 
They are a really pretty rainbow pearly hologram. I've had them for such a long time I don't even remember how they came to be in my collection. 
I paired them with my black lace top, hoping for some more Black Milk tops soon; they go with everything!
This necklace matches perfectly with the leggings, it has the same shades of rainbow shimmer :)

Deep Purple

Purple Kapow! Love the colour of this dress, reminds me of Cadbury chocolate :)
I wasn't going to buy the purple one to begin with, then I saw a behind the scenes photo of it from the shoot and it looked so much nicer than the product page photos.
I'm really surprised that it's still available on the site, I would have thought it would have been more popular! I think it's really unique and something a little bit different from usual Black Milk styles.
Glitter Nightwalk's and coloured jewels make it a real party worthy outfit!

Plumbath

Finally tracked down Plumbaths!! My Bath collection is nearly complete ;)
I love them! Such an awesome pattern and colour.
I paired them with this new top I recently bought from Saxony, they have some really great pieces. I also bought a couple of other more winter style tops which I really like too. Lot's of black which is always great by me!

Boney

Here's the Bone Machine side of my latest Inside Out Dress.
I do like the print placement of this one, especially the top part, the print kind of follows your ribs.
Of course I had to wear it with my Bone Machine Lita's ;)
I accessorised with the same pieces I wore in the Galaxy side outfit, some blue to break up the monochrome.
I never used to be a fan of clutch bags; then I got my first Balenciaga Envelope Clutch and fell in love with them! I use these all the time now! (as you've probably noticed in my posts). I really want to get a black one soon.

Seeing Stars

My third Inside Out Dress; Blue Galaxy vs Bone Machine.
I now have 3 out of the 4 released so far; of course the one I want the most is the one I don't have (Peacock vs Purple Galaxy).
I've heard there will be a single sided Peacock Skater released soon though! So hopefully that happens :)
I just got this one in a swap, it's unfortunately too big for me being XS. I really like the galaxy side, not so keen on the bone machine side, I think I would like it a lot more if it fit me better.
I paired it here with my Metallic Midnight Lita's and blue accessories.

Meteor

I recently got this awesome Black Milk jacket from another lovely sharkie.
It was a prototype piece from when Black Milk first started. I guess they decided to go with just the Meteor Top & Dress. It's a shame cause the Jacket is really nice!
I never really wanted the Meteor Dress until now! Once I got the Jacket I really noticed the sparkle the fabric has, it's really pretty :)
I paired it with my Sheer Straps; an impulse purchase when they became limited! So glad I got them, I think they will be good for wearing under dresses too. I sized down in these; my regular size was sold out when I went to buy them, but they actually fit really well.
My JC Watchman boots match the shimmery effect of the jacket, add a mini bag and my outfits complete :)

90's Kid

I've always loved Nirvana, so when I saw this tee in Cotton On I had to buy it :)
To keep with the 90's grunge theme, I wore it with my Black Milk blue tartan leggings.
These are my first pair of Black Milk tartans. I was going to buy the red ones; which are still on my wishlist, but these blue one's are my favourite, they popped up on eBay recently and I got them for around retail price which was really good. 
All my favourite shoes are huge platforms! The chunkiness of the Neo boots are very 90's too.
I bought the whole outfit together with black & blue accessories. I really like this look :)

Illuminati

Here is the other side of my special custom Black Milk Inside Out Dress' Illuminati!
I love the leggings in this print, but have not yet been able to track a pair down in my size.
I thought the print would look awesome in a dress; so I chose it for the reverse side of my 200th piece!
I think this pattern will be a good one to dress up or down, I can match it with a lot of different colours and have it work together.
I paired it here with my Lita Spikes, one of my earlier pairs of Jeffrey Campbell's, I find I don't wear them often anymore, but the black/silver matches the tones of the dress pretty well :)

Barbie Bath

As if Black Milk wasn't awesome enough; they also offer special milestone rewards.
Once you buy 50 pieces from the store you get a $130 gift voucher; I used mine to buy my Nairobi Long Sleeve Dress.
At 100 pieces you can chose the Pop Art print in any style; I chose the Bodycon Dress, I also have the Leggings.
At 200 you get to create your own special custom piece!!
On my second BM anniversary I received my 200+ Club email. 
I had been thinking about what I would chose for a while; I decided on an inside out dress!
You can get anything printed as long as it isn't copyright. So many options! But I really wanted something that was still unique to Black Milk, seeing as other companies now do custom prints also.
Here is my styling of the first side; Barbiebath! My own creation based on the Black Milk Bath series I really love those leggings, and now own 3 out of four; Plumbath (purple), Bloodbath (red) Slimebath (green)! Still looking for the Snowbath (white). 
I asked for a pink version; I love pink! Obviously seeing as my blog is named Pink Glitter! If there was more of the Glitter Pink fabric and the custom piece could be designer material I probably would have gone with that!
I'm so happy with my special dress!! I came home to it in my mailbox, it was a big surprise! I wasn't expecting it so soon- I only got my email 3 weeks ago :)
Thankyou to everyone at Black Milk for making this happen! Special thanks to Cam for all your help xx

Pegasus

A blue and neutral outfit for today's post. Wearing my Black Milk Pegasus Swim for the first time since I bought it a few months back. 
Another piece I never gave much thought to when it was in-store, but I've been collecting all the Animal Swim's lately. I really like the background image behind the Pegasus; it reminds me of Alphonse Mucha pieces.
I paired the swim with another Black Milk piece; one of my many velvet bodycon skirts- this time in a light blue to match the background of the swim.
I really like how these pieces look paired with one of my favourite pairs of Jeffrey Campbell's; the Stunning. These neutral toned shoes match so much! The T-strap design is always a winner for me :)

Dead Cat

Double Black Milk outfit featuring the Lace Shrug and an unexpected love; Dead Cat Leggings.
I bought these leggings in the last museum release; when they were in store I didn't give them much thought, there was so much else I wanted at the time. 
Looking through the Museum items they caught my eye, reminding me a little of the Abstraction print which I am still looking for. 
I decided to buy the Dead Cat's- named because the pattern features Cat Skeletons all over- and I'm glad I did! I really love them, they look just like patterned leggings until you get up close to see the detail.
I paired them with all black, including another BM purchase; the Lace Shrug, which I decided against keeping, they were just so huge!

Go Go

I love the Burned Velvet fabric; when I saw this dress sneaked in a podcast over a year ago now it was an instant want!
Finally it was released as part of Black Milk's Game Of Thrones Collection.
As soon as it was released I snapped it up. I probably could have sized down for this one I think, but it still fits quite well. 
I paired it with my Opening Ceremony heels and some giant statement earrings.

Sick Of Skaters? Never

A couple of posts ago I shared my styling of the Sapphire side of my latest Inside Out Dress, now here is the reverse side; Sick Of Men.
I always loved the Sick Of Men print, so I had to have this! I really like how the print is smaller on this dress too, not as in-your-face as my bodycon and skirt were.
I paired the dress with my SOM Lita boots- how could I not?

Golden Pin Up

Another of my sample Black Milk pieces; probably my favourite one, and also my newest.
I bought this Pin Up dress from another Sharkie (who I've also bought a few others from before).
It's the same cut as the original Pin Up Dress, but the layer under the lace is gold instead of the regular black. It's so pretty and shimmery in real life :)
I paired the dress with all black & gold accessories, including my forgotten Hermes cuff I found stashed at the back of my jewellery draw!

Crystal Blue

Second Inside Out Dress. Sapphire vs Sick Of Men. I love both sides of the dress!
Here's my styling of the Sapphire side; keeping it simple with blue accessories, the dress is a statement itself.
I really love these Jeffrey Campbell heels, they are so pretty and shiny up close. The ankle strap is removable; I think I prefer them without it.
My special 200th Custom piece is on the way; also an inside out dress! Can't wait to share it!!

Musk Mermaid

Black Milk sample pieces! So much unreleased awesomeness!
I have a few unique sample pieces that I really love; including this Mermaid Musk Skater.
I think this one is eventually going to be released; I hope so cause it's such a pretty dress.
It's much more pink in real life, but hard to photograph, it's one of those that changes colours under different lights.
I paired it with pink accessories of different shades; including my Senso lace up heels, I haven't worn these for quite a while, I forgot how good they are :)

Battlesuit

Here's my Purple Battlesuit outfit. I really wanted the Red one, but I missed out, so I bought this one as a replacement.
I do like it, but I'm hoping to eventually track one down in the red ;)
I paired it with all black- lace skirt to girly up the PVC look a bit, and my Hellbounds.
I would love this with pink panels! Maybe one day..
