New Things from the Swap!

My other half took some pictures for me today, because I wanted to get nice pics of the dress and New Rock boots I got from the clothes swap. I even took the time to fiddle with Photoshop to make the pics look decent :)


I swapped the dress with Ravenoaris, she had bought it second hand and apparently it was hand-made by some previous owner. It looks like it's inspired by Lip Service's tartan dresses, since it has the same type of little train that can be lifted with a clip and a D-ring in the back. It needs a tiny bit of sewing on the inside edge at the back, but other than that, it's in perfect condition. I just maybe should have ironed it before taking pics ;P


I'm so excited about continuing the tattoo, I've always dreamed of a full sleeve and I like the colours and symbols in it right now. The lower part will have roses, cat skull and a bird skull, maybe some more lilies too if there's any room left.


The dress has straps with nice little buckles. I'm also wearing the Aromaleigh eyeshadow I bought at the swap from Jenni!


And the boots! I'm so in love with these! They have a taller, more detailed platform than my old ones and the heels with the metal plates is super cool. They have patent leather flames appliqued on top of regular matter leather.




The bat clip is old, it's made by me but I always forget to use it!

    1. Thank you! The single person pics are so narrow that they look a bit sad, so I saw many blogs use mirroring and looks like they do it for good reason :)

  9. UuuUuu mikä mekko! Olin hieman pettynyt, ettei ollut linkkiä mistä mekkoja voisi ostaa, mutta oikeastaan vielä hienompaa, että joku on omin pienin kätösin sen tehnyt. Todella kaunis: ei liian punk, mutta siinä on huisisti särmää silti :)

  10. Voiiii että miten tuo mekko sopiikaan sulle! ;_; ♥ Oon iloinen, että mekko sai uuden käyttäjän. :) Harmittaisi vaan jos se edelleen retkottaisi tuolla kaapissa käyttämättömänä!
