Striped Stripey Stripes

I'm writing this post wrapped in my black and white striped blanket that my other half gave to me. He knows what I like! Black and white stripes are one of my favourite patterns: simple, elegant and stunning. I like Artifice Clothing a lot, and when they listed a black and white striped shrug on their Etsy shop, I just had to get it! It arrived early this month and I've been meaning to take pictures with it but always been too busy. But today my other half and I installed the grey Ikea curtain we got to work as a background for photos. I wanted to try it out and remembered the shrug, so here are some shots of it! I naturally paired it with a stripy corset ;P


Shrug - Artifice Clothing
Top - Lip Service
Corset - DeadlyGirlz
Necklace - H&M
Earrings - Second hand
Hair piece - Hair from Hell





I really love the effect the grey curtain gives! It works with both black and white outfits and the shadows blend out which looks kinda cool. It's now attached to hang on top of a doorway so the curtain can just be pulled down when needed and is neatly rolled on top of the doorway when not in use. I've been needing a neutral background on a spot I don't have to prepare to take pictures at. When I use the black wallpaper as background, I have to lift one of the big speakers we have to get it out of the way. It's not something I enjoy, especially if I'm an idiot and put a corset on before prepping the shooting area!

    1. Thank you! I really like how versatile the hair pieces are, this up-do was done by simply gathering one fall on top of my head and pinning it in place. Easy, fast and so light to wear you barely know it's there! I like how up-dos make your neck look a lot longer, I should do them more often!
