I actually own this dress, Secret of Kells by Knight Night on Taobao, in two different colours. One day I’ll probably en devour to take photos of myself in both outfits so I can put them next to each other and make out like I’m my own twin.
JSK – Secret of Kells
Blouse, Cardigan – Amavel
Socks – Metamorphose Temps de Fille
Shoes – Hush Puppies
Beret – Kangol (vintage)
Necklace – Jane Marple
Bag – Milk
The pictures were taken in Southport shopping arcade. I think this staircase is really beautiful, and I like the way the rich colours of the chartreuse wall tiles look with the deep wine and navy in my look.
Secret of Kells gives me such a ‘scholarly’ feeling, so I wanted to do quite an academic look to go with the gown. I really like the balance and depth of colours in the overall look – and it’s so weird to not be wearing any black at all!
As someone who owns at least 15 copies of The Gothic and Lolita Bible (GLB) I’m obviously devastated to hear the announcement today that the magazine will be suspended as of May 24th.
I know it’s a little bit late to be posting about Christmas, approximately two months late, but I have Tokyo Disney Sea photos to share!
One of the things we really wanted to do during our holiday was go to Tokyo Disney Sea while the Christmas decorations were up. We went on the 21st and it was beautiful! It was also Disney Sea’s 15 anniversary, which was crystal themed, so there was beautiful crystals everywhere.

Somehow my trip to Den Bosch and Amsterdam ended up being very quiet and peaceful. Looking back at my photos I notice a lovely thread of red going through them. I would even go as far as to call it a photo story. Continue reading
Now that I’ve transferred all my posts over I can start giving you all fresh content again! At some point, I’m going to have to do the boring job of fixing all the pictures, but it’s been too long since we had an update so let’s have one.
The past couple of months have been exceptionally busy; I’ve been traveling a lot with work, everyone I know has had loads of drama, I’ve had 10,000 things to do in general so not much posting has been happening. I’m really sorry about that. This blog is usually something I do to chill out but I haven’t had the energy at all lately. Anyway.
I haven’t really felt like blogging much in post-brexit vote England, the rainy weather pretty much reflects my mood on the whole thing – even though my outfit is the exact opposite. I know I don’t look what people consider to be “foreign” whatever that is, but my family are immigrants who came here in 91/92 to flee a war in our home country. For a long time I have been very proud to be a citizen of this country but at the moment I am bit anxious, a bit unsure as to whether I feel safe and who in the streets would tell me to leave if they knew where I was born. I’m very lucky to have the privilege that I do in being white and having an English accent, so I try and use these traits to speak for people who cannot speak for themselves in this country and this language and who have been and will be scapegoated and picked on in this country in the future. I feel lucky to live in Liverpool which is such an accepting and friendly place. I am trying to be positive and hopeful and remain outspoken on issues which affect other people who come to this country as refugees and immigrants such as myself but for now please just have patience and let me heal and please enjoy these photos of a lovely day at the Tate Liverpool.
Georgia and I decided to go to Manchester Gallery and see the Fashion and Freedom exhibition, which features fashion items inspired from students and industry professionals on the theme of world war 1.
I happened to have recently acquired a gold Milk heart shaped bag, yay me! My friend has had the Loris replica version for a good while and we thought we’d put them side by side and show you the difference, so you don’t get caught out by someone trying to pass off a replica for the original brand price.
My obsession with this Sonia Rykiel jumper will never end. Sorry about the phone camera selfie collage but I was spending the day with my mother and having a lovely time and I took these in about 5 minutes while she went to the bathroom!! Desperate, but this overall look was too good to miss.
Loving the amount of pink in my life at the moment to be honest.
