XwwX tee now in stock from www.xwwx.co.uk
As anyone who followed me a few months ago when I was regularly blogging will remember, my style was, as my blog name suggests, vaguely hipster. Over the course of the last few months I’ve undergone several changes in my life which have affected my style immensely.
The biggest determinant of my style is, of course, whatever stock we get in at work. Through the winter season we received a lot of cozy winter stock, so my style turned into a bit of a ski lodge-chic thing which, although not bad, isn’t what I want to be wearing 24/7/365. No, I need something significantly more exciting than that.
I encountered a man in October of last year. This changed my style in its own way. I started experimenting a little bit more to figure out what he likes on me. This turned out to be a futile endeavour because, as wonderful as he is, he is a geek and gamer and therefore doesn’t really, well, care. Which is okay. I shan’t complain. He will voice his opinion when he doesn’t like something, however, which I realized when I suggested that I purchase the new Olsen Neo City pink biker jacket (which I still might do), upon which suggestion I found out that he dislikes pink and thinks he needs to stage an intervention, since I used to hate it as well. I think I may get the jacket anyway. It makes me look sexy.
Over exam break/the latter half of winter I moved into my annual “screw everything” phase during which I forewent make-up, still bothered to do my hair because it’s honestly too short to get away with not doing it, and I opted for baggier tops and sweat pants/leggings whenever possible.
In the last week and a bit I’ve finally pulled myself out of that phase and managed to find myself a new style. I recently downloaded Adele’s “Skyfall” since I hadn’t heard it in earnest since I saw the movie several months ago, and it sparked my latest flip. I’ve gone Bond-girl. I don’t know… I like it.
For instance: today. I haven’t gotten the opportunity to take a picture of my outfit today, but let me try to describe it for you.
I’m wearing the Olsen Neo City black viscose dress: http://www.olsenfashion.com/ca/en_CA/shop/dresses/elegant-dress/13001017/80000/detail.jsp?origin=dresses&categoryPosition=7
I’ve paired it with slate tights, patent leather, knee-high boots, one of our old scarves (Copacabana [Summer 2012] white scarf with black and grey paint spatter effect), a very delicate crystal necklace from Banana Republic, my pearl ring, and my white Fossil watch.
I’ve done my signature spiked hair with the straightened front and a smokey eye with bronze and black and crisp liquid liner with a red-brown lip (Revlon lip tint in “Dawn”).
It looks pretty good. Even though I’ve dropped 28 lbs since I last blogged I’m still pretty squishy, so it doesn’t look at quintessentially sexy as a real Bond girl would, but I’m getting there.
I’m thinking about getting started blogging here again, so stay tuned for more.
I hope you all have a good Friday and a great weekend!
I just bought this today at Winners. I swear to God it’s smaller than my other one, yet somehow it holds more stuff. I’m not complaining, though, because this just means that my Kabuki brush isn’t running rampant in my bag anymore!
Thank you so much!
(You’re quite pretty, too, by the way!!)
Thank you so much :3 It was a huge change for me but I’m really liking it! I’m glad you like it too!
My Outfit of the Day! lol Just kidding, this is my belly dance costume which I’ve been waiting on since July. Once it got here it was too big in a ll the wrong places so I had to do some mending which I’ve finally finished, so here it is!
As promised, I have for you here a post about my hair transformation! Over the course of the last month and a bit I’ve undergone some drastic change with my hair, all of which I am very happy with.
I started off with hair that went half-way down my back. I had lots of fun with it, trying out Victorian hair styles and just generally playing with it. But everyday I would wear it up in a bun, I hated having it down! So I decided that it was time for a cut.
This took me to the second look, which was our intermediate look. We needed to give the hair time to adjust to being short and light so that we could see where it settled and finish the look without having some interesting cowlicks.
Lastly we have the third picture which I just took. This was the end I was aiming for and I’m very very happy with it.
I hope you guys like it! I might post something else tonight, I’m not sure. Until I see you again!
Here’s my outfit of the day for the very first day of September! I’m very excited that the month has changed, because the last few days of August were absolute torture and I have a feeling September (or at least the first few days) will be better!
Again, I’m off to work (this is the last consecutive day I’m scheduled, so I’ll wear something non-Olsen tomorrow) so I’m wearing all Olsen. I washed up my burgundy pants (which you can actually tell are burgundy today! See? I was right!) and my orange/ink striped sweater. It’s just thin enough so I don’t over-heat outside today but it’s warm enough that I won’t freeze to death at work. I’ve just got it with the same grey Coach tote as the last two days, and as usual the Life Strength band.
You may have noticed that I got another haircut. I’ll be a doing a quick post on that presently, so stay tuned!
Take care guys!
So, the colours didn’t show up as well as they could have, but I was rushed this morning, so I couldn’t do much better.
Once again, I was off to work today, so I had to dress in Olsen clothes. I paired a plain black v-neck with 3/4 sleeves with a pair of burgundy (yes, they are burgundy, I checked) pants. I put a circle/infinity scarf twice around my neck and finished with the grey Coach tote. I wore my olive green Toms with this and, of course, my Life Strength band.
That was it for today, I hope you guys liked it and I will see you all tomorrow!
