I wanted to pair these two together ever since I bought the Lita's ages ago.
My SOM Dress was too big though, I finally managed to size down, it's still a size bigger than I usually wear, but much better than it was :)
I really love this print! It was a dream piece of mine for a long time. I paired it with yellow accessories this time, but it could be paired with lots of colours thanks to the busy and colourful print of the dress.
Another double Black Milk outfit; Velvet Evil Skater and Tiger Spartans.
I think I am going to swap the Spartans, not really my style. They are pretty cool and sparkly though, so I thought I would try to style them here.
I paired them with all black, making the spartan panels the focus. I tried them with a regular top first, I think they really do need to be worn with something longer though, looks so much better like this :)
I recently bought these suspenders online from another girl. There sample Black Milk one's that were never released.
They are really pretty- same material as the Bubblegum Skirt, but they are too big for me. They really arnt all that flattering, and baggy at the ankles, but I decided to take some pics with them anyway.
I paired them with my new Finsk boots and a longer top, I haven't had suspenders before, and really I'm still unsure if I like them..
Black Milk Neon Aurora Dress; I loved my original green one, it was my original 'dream piece' that I spent a lot of money on. I was hoping the purple version would be released, but apparently it isn't going to be, so when this one went limited I had to buy it!
I paired it with an equally bright cardigan and my sparkly Haus of Price wedges.
Sheer Top Bodysuit paired with Silver Velvet Skirt.
Also my new super shiny Lita's in hologram! Love these, they look so much better in real life. I'm really glad I decided to get them before they sold out, I was thinking about them for a long time, then they went on sale for $80, score :)
I just got shipping notifications for 3 of my Black Milk orders from yesterday's release, so quick! Can't wait to come home to my new pretties.
A simple Christmas inspired outfit to get into the spirit of tomorrows Christmas BM Release!
Red Stripes Bodysuit- a pretty old piece, I really like it, but it is quite thin, paired with my red velvet skirt.
There are 7 things I'm hoping to score tomorrow; including the Christmas Tree Skater Dress to wear on Christmas Day. Last Christmas I wore my SJ Nixie Dress, so dressing it down a bit this year ;)
I'm not planning on getting any Adventure Time pieces tomorrow; although they are cute, I've never really seen the show. I do like the Princess Bubblegum Skater Dress though, mostly because it's pink! So I may end up buying that one later on :)
I saw the Attack of the Unicorn print was coming out as a dress, but decided to buy the swim instead when it went limited. I've really gone off the bodycon dresses lately; they used to be my favourite!
I got the Red PVC Skirt in xxs, a size smaller than my usual size, turns out it's actually a better fit for me, the xs looks like too much material. Pretty glad as I was worried it would be too small.
Can't wait to see the list for the next collection! So far none of the sneak peaks have really grabbed my attention. I've never watched Adventure Time so I'll probably pass on all of those pieces. Hopefully I find something nice for Christmas! Fingers crossed for some designer pieces :)
Two of my Ammo items worn together.
The Pink PVC Skater Skirt was my most wanted item from the release after the Glitter Pinks.
I was lucky enough to snag both the pink & the red! They looked really small when I got them, but they fit quite nicely.
I paired it with my Indy Check Skater Dress, but worn under the skirt as a top. I originally wasn't going to get the dress; but when I saw it was only $60 I couldn't resist.
I like the way this outfit came together- it's very me; girly but with a touch of goth with the Mary Chain platforms :)
I never gave much attention to the Watermelon Skirt; until one day, I thought it would be perfect paired with my Caterpillar Swim.
Making my own Hungry Caterpillar outfit, the green and pink are similar colours to the ones in the swim, the Caterpillar is eating the Watermelon ;)
Pastel accessories with my Vapor heels and squashed-from-storage Balenciaga bag.
I also got a new Arty ring- this purple one. Now I have 5, I love them!
Such soft lovely fabric. I paired it with my Opening Ceremony heels, which also have the deep blue velvet on the lower half- it's hard to see in photos. Also a couple of vintage accessories with the clutch and belt/necklace :)
I had a lot of success in the Ammo release today, managing to get all 6 pieces I really wanted! Can't wait to get them in the mail and style them!
These are the Pink Panther Leggings- set to have a limited re-release in Thursday's Black Milk Ammo.
If you are able to ninja them, I'm sure you wont regret it! I really love them, so sparkly :)
I bought mine about a year ago now from eBay. Not really sure what happened to Black Milk's "no re-releases" plan..
I put my pink laces in my Hellbound's to match the black & pink of the leggings, due to the camera flash though it ended up looking two completely different colours.
There's a few things I would like to get from the Ammo release, the one I really want doesn't look like it's going to happen though :( even though they would match my blog perfectly..looks like there's no Glitter Pink Leggings for Pink Glitter.
I've had mine for about a year now and never worn it..I seem to do that a lot..so here it is finally.
I also have the leggings which I have shown previously in this post. Honestly not sure which I prefer, I used to be really into the dresses, but now I prefer swims. The ride up on the dresses annoys me, pull the dress down, the top ends up too low cut..can't win.
I've recently started buying shoes again after taking a break from them for a while. Here is one of my new pairs; the UNIF Vapor in Lavender. I loved these when I saw them posted from the Sample Sale, much prettier than the black version which was widely available.
They are pretty high, but are stable thanks to the large platform and thick heel. Love the perspex heel detailing :)
Something a little different from my usual outfits. A sophisticated top dressed down with casual jeans.
I wish I had bought more of the short lived Sophia James pieces, but I'm lucky to have the ones I do. This top; the Damsel is really nice, and especially great as it can be worn 2 way's being reversible.
Balenciaga accessories- with the bag and bracelet, one of many, I will have to do a collection shot soon :)
My last Halloween order arrived yesterday; Wednesday Dress and Blue Velvet EC Dress.
I tried them on and was really unsure of the Wednesday Dress, the tassels were all wonky and I just wasn't loving it.
After letting it hang overnight; the tassels have dropped a bit better now, so I thought I'd try to style it today.
I decided to wear the front tassels around the neck and draped over the back, an idea I saw a girl post on the BM group. I really prefer it like this rather than having all the tassels just hanging over the front (as seen in the last photo).
The dress is pretty tight, with not much stretch so maybe size up if your between sizes, however one good thing about being tight is no duck bum :)
My first order from Black Milk's Halloween Collection 'All Killer, No Filler' release arrived today.
I got the I Eat Mice Zipper Suit and the Freak Stew Skater Skirt.
I actually ended up placing 4 seperate orders within like 10 minutes cause I didn't want to miss out on the limited items. Turns out I rushed for no reason, as things didn't sell out as quickly as usual.
Both of these items are currently still available, so if you like them; snap them up while you can! I highly recommend them both! Especially the Zipper Suit! It's so nice, really shiny and I love the zip feature, hopefully there will be more Zipper Suits in the future :)
A neutral coloured outfit for today featuring my Black Milk Owl Swim and my just arrived Phillip Lim for Target mini satchel in Taupe. I also got the Yellow and Black versions of the same bag, which I will feature in future posts.
I love them! So little and cute; but surprisingly fit quite a lot inside! I've been thinking of buying the Mini Pashli from Phillip Lim's main collection; these dupes have made me even more certain of wanting the Pashli! Now to decide which colour..
I scored this skirt for only $5 from Kmart so that was pretty good, it's just a simple skirt, but I liked it with the Owl.
Glad I decided to buy the Back Of The Deck Swim in the last BM release, being a limited pre-sale item, I was still undecided, but the time limited made me cave! Turns out I really like it :)
Such a crazy pattern called for a simple bottom; the Eyelash Skirt. The Eyelash Dress & Tee are some of my most worn and versatile Black Milk pieces, so I knew I needed the skirt when it was announced!
I'm really looking forward to the Halloween release! Judging from the ever-growing list; there are quite a number of items I plan on nomming :)
Another red + black outfit; my favourite colour combination.
First time wearing my Bloodbath leggings, despite having them for ages, I actually like them more than I thought I would, they are a very detailed print, looks like little faces hidden in the pattern. I would love to get the purple version 'Plumbaths'.
I paired them with my Phillip Lim tank, Im really loving this designer at the moment! And yes I did pick up a few pieces from the recent Target collaboration, but more on those later ;)
Something different for this outfit post; I'm wearing flat shoes (well flat for me) My UNIF Koop's got there first outing, very comfortable and easy to wear, and I didn't stab anyone with the spikes either!
As I mentioned earlier; I have a new bag to show and here it is! The Balenciaga Classic City in Coquelicot. It looks a little more orange than in real life in these photos, but It's a really beautiful Poppy red in real life. I've wanted a red Balenciaga for a really long time and was originally searching for one with the giant gold hardware, but when I saw it, I didn't really like the gold with the red. Then I found the classic with all the tassels and fell in love :)
Sort-of Spring weather means I can wear my dresses!
Im really glad I was able to get this BM Lace Skater when it was released, it's really pretty :) Although I would call the colour more pink/watermelon than red as the name states.
It matched my Balenciaga clutch perfectly; also a pinky/red shade. I've never really been into clutch bags, but I really like the Balenciaga styles as they are more slouchy than structured and fit quite a lot!
I got these JC Hologram Heels recently for a bargain price! I expected them to be to big for me as they are a size larger than my usual, but they fit really well. They look awesome in the light!
As the weather slowly warms up, I am now able to start wearing some of the Black Milk pieces I have accumulated over winter, this was my first outing in the Tartan vs Wetlook Bodysuit I got in one of the recent releases, I love it! Hopefully there will be more styles like this in future.
I love wearing red & black together, so this outfit worked really well for my style, plus I finally got some wear out of my tartan Tardy boots :)
Black Milk's latest collection is released on Tuesday! All Harry Potter! There are lots of pieces, but only a few that I am interested in buying, although I have read the books and like it, A lot of the clothes aren't something I would ever wear now.
The one's I do like are the two Deathly Hallows pieces- Leggings and the Swim. The Front Marauders Map Dress and Weasley Weather Tee. Also maybe the Daily Prophet Leggings- similar to the original Newspaper Leggings; but magical :)
Earthly Delight Leggings; these are such a busy print I kept the top half simple; wearing my I heart BM tee, I really like loose long style tops with leggings. Also kept my accessories to earthy natural tones to match some of the colour scheme of the leggings.
There is so much happening in this print; taken from a painting by Hieronymus Bosch, it's really interesting to look at.
I prefer the Earthly design to the Unearthly, I would really love this in a Swim!
Finally a new outfit post!
I've been pretty busy with both my work and personal lives lately, that combined with feeling under the weather for quite a while now means my poor blog has been neglected.
I've received quite a few new Black Milk pieces recently, including this 'Sharks in a Net' Cardigan from the last release 'Dark Energy'.
I also got the Tartan VS Wetlook Bodysuit, Back Of The Deck 2.0 Swim, Woodchucks, Le Chat Dress and Burned Velvet Skirt. But more on those later ;)
The main thing I wanted was the Sharks Cardigan and it was limited, so as soon as it was released I quickly checked out with it then went back for the others. So happy I got one! It's such an awesome design.
I paired it with a simple singlet and leggings combination for a lazy rainy weekend. Finally wore my Pink Leopard Leggings too!
Something different from the usual Black Milk posts that have taken over my blog lately ;)
Going back to my first obsession; Shoes!
I recently decided that I needed these UNIF Koop Sneakers in the Black Leather.
Lately I've been more into the grungy/dark looks, I spotted these and impulse bought them.
They still have a platform, so not completely flat, but something different than the giant platform heel styles I usually go for.
I love my Hellraiser's because of the spikes that cover them, I really liked these for that reason too, they remind me of a more dangerous version of the converse sneakers ;)
I ordered them from Karmaloop, a site that I usually avoid, but they were on sale and I had a code, so it was a pretty good deal. As usual I was disappointed with Karmaloop's service- delivery was super slow and when they finally did arrive they were missing a spike already!
I contacted UNIF direct and they are sending me out some extra spikes! They are always really awesome with their customer service at least. Karmaloop's solution was for me to send them back, oh but by the way we don't have that style anymore..Awesome thanks guys -_-
I am yet to wear them out, I've only tried them on, but they seem good overall! Very sturdy and good quality (apart from the spike issue).
I got a size 6 after reading mixed reviews. I'm glad I decided against sizing up as even the 6 seem a little big.
