Sugar Spikes

(Sweater - Forever 21, Leggings - Topshop, Bag - Present from Japan)

Another cloudy, rainy day in the DC area. This kind of weather gets my DIY juices flowing though, so I'm going to go to the fabric store and see what I can come up with. And if it isn't a complete disaster, I will make one for Miriam and also include you lovely readers on this project. A youtube video featuring this look will be up soon on my channel.

'Cause This is Ladies' Night

Crop top (Forever 21), Shorts (Urban Outfitters), Ankle Boots (Sam Edelman), Bag (Italy), Spike Bracelet (Ebay) 

One of those "I just wanna dance!" nights with my girlfriends.

Ode to a Nightingale...called Norman

Bird-cage ring by Buddug. 

This is Norman, perhaps the greatest piece of jewellery to have ever been created. He was adopted (not bought - that's far too vulgar) from a lovely little boutique in Newcastle (now online at around 4 years ago. In his short life he has journeyed in and around Eurasia and then back again to England, all the while serving as a reminder of the importance of freedom. Perhaps he looks a little careworn now, his beautiful plume less lustrous, yet he still receives admiring (?) glances wherever he goes and is a firm favourite among friends!

Chilly Beauty

Makeup, one of the most fun and changeable accessories, is so much better in the F/W. Glitters are encouraged and so are exciting lip shades and eye looks. I recently picked up Essie's deep dark green Stylenomics and I paired it with a multi-colored glitter from Milani. Stylenomics looks like deep green in the bottle but on the nails it looks more black. 

Miriam and I are hardcore fans of cat-eye looks for the eyes, and I recently found an amazing dupe for the Japanese eye liner pens that we hoarded when we lived in Hiroshima -- Physician's Formula Eye Booster Liquid Liner. It has the same brush tip applicator as Japanese liners, and what's more is that it has lash lengthening serum in the formula. I can never remember to apply my lash enhancing serums before bed, but since I wear eyeliner almost every day this is great! I haven't noticed the effects yet, but I am hopeful.

This is Fall - LA style

Being able to sit on the beach in late October watching the sunset was magical. And now I'm back in D.C. snuggling up in a sweater. I must live in LA one day though.

Hallow's eve

(Leather Jacket - Songtan, Korea Boutique, Lace Dress - Nastygal Vintage) 
Happy Halloween, dear readers! How was your night and what did you disguise yourselves as? Now, I find that selecting a Halloween costume is less about a pre-packaged polyester mini-dress but being able to look through your wardrobe or local thrift store and creating the look! This is my Black Swan eye-makeup look -- post-partying and in full-regret mode because of the amount of black eyeliner I'm about to hemorrhage off of my face.
