Velvet Flapper

My style has changed lately; I'm not really into the bright coloured outfits as much anymore, much preferring darker colours- usually black with a few deeper coloured accessories.
I'm not really sure what caused the change, but I'm really liking it.
Here's another of the darker looks featuring my Black Milk long sleeve velvet dress; a piece I was really glad to see re-released! I have quite a love for velvet pieces!
Also wearing my Flapper Hosiery- they remind me of mermaid scales :)

Give Me Nylon

Give Me Nylon Or Give Me Death! A pretty true saying for me and my Black Milk obsession!
The 400k Noms Bodysuit was a must have for sharkies. I paired it here with my BV Maxi Dress folded over and worn as a long skirt. I love the Burnt Velvet stuff!! Hoping for more styles in the future :)

Shiny Sapphire

I've bought so much from each of the last few Black Milk releases, I haven't had a chance to even wear a lot of the pieces yet! 
Like the shattered crystal pieces; I bought all three colours in both the dress and the bodysuit. Here's my styling of the Sapphire Shattered Crystal Bodysuit.
It's the middle of winter here now and the temperature is really dropping! So I'm finding I'm always too rugged up now to bother taking any outfit pics. I hate winter with a passion! Cannot wait for the warm weather to return so I can get more wear out of my Black Milk Swims & Dresses :)

Dark Days

I've just returned from visiting Kuala Lumpur for Fashion Week!
I had a great time seeing the runway shows and discovered some new designers whose pieces I fell in love with!
I also did a bit of shopping while I was there of course ;) But more on that soon.
For now; here is my Arabella Noir Dress; My favourite of the 3 of course, being black!
I paired it with some vintage accessories and my long-lusted JC Black Stunning's which I own after trying to find them for such a long time! The best part- the bargain price I scored them for on eBay :)

Arabella

As soon as I saw the lace bell sleeved dresses from the Black Milk Christmas Party I fell in love.
It's been a long wait, but the final version was released with this months 'Battle of the Kings' Black Milk release.
The Arabella came in three colours; black, blush and wine. I wanted all three.
I got my wish, I was able to get them all, which I was really happy about! 
Here is my styling of the Wine. It's such a pretty dress I kept it basic- paired with vintage accessories and simple platforms.
I really love these dresses, the fit is really nice and the colours are lovely! The wine is a little darker in real life than it looks in my photos. I'm really into medieval / game of thrones styles at the moment, so there were a few pieces in this collection which I liked. The never ending Black Milk buys continue ;)

Dragon Spartan

Update: from now on I will be posting a new outfit post every Wednesday. Real life is getting busier and I just don't have the time to update the blog as often anymore.
This weeks post features Lace Spartan Bodysuit- a piece I had for a long time but was unsure of how to style it, the diagonal panel makes it tricky to pair with anything on the bottom, I decided to keep it to a similar colour scheme, pairing it with my Dragon Snot skirt- which looks awesome in the light :)

Jabberwocky

I was so undecided about the Jabberwocky Swim when it was released, there were a lot of other pieces I wanted in that release, and being a 48hr item it wasn't my priority.
I ended up not buying it, which of course, as usual I regretted. 
I ended up swapping with another lovely Sharkie- she got my Starry Nights dress and I got the Jabberwocky!
I really love the colours and how the texture of the print makes it look like a drawing.
I paired it here with my leather skirt and a new jacket bought recently from Dolls Kill- another of my favourite online stores :)

High Neck, High Socks

When I first tried this dress on, I really wasn't liking it at all! It was huge and had no shape to it (which I was expecting from the site photos, but thought I would try it out anyway). 
Paired with a belt and a singlet dress underneath and it's much better. 
Another pair of shoes first spotted thanks to Black Milk; Ego & Greed Carleen's; cute little clog style heels which I paired here with high socks..which did unfortunately make my feet slip forward.
I also dusted off my old Stam bag, I haven't used this one in what feels like forever, I had forgotten how awesome it is :)

Jeffrey Campbell Scully

Another day; another shoe purchase. 
One of my latest arrivals direct from Solestruck; the Jeffrey Campbell Scully.
A pre-order from months back, I finally received them about a week ago now.
Jeffrey Campbell is and always will be my shoe designer of choice. Every time I take a new pair out of the box, they never disappoint.
Sticking to my tradition of black platforms. These are a 6 inch heel with a 2 inch grippy platform.
I got my usual size 6 and if anything they feel slightly small, but still wearable. 
I'm not overly fond of the velcro ankle strap, but that can be removed if desired.
As always with platforms; I had no trouble walking in these, they are very stable and well balanced.
I've already worn them in a couple of outfit posts; 'Hocus Pocus' and 'Witch Please' and also with high socks which I really love the look off paired together with these platforms.

Little Lies

Little Lies Maxi Dress- I was worried it would be way too long on me, but as long as I wear high shoes it's not too bad.
I'm wearing a nude bodycon underneath, this dress really does need something underneath thanks to the lace parts, otherwise it would be too revealing!
It's quite a statement in itself, so I kept the accessories simple.

Purple Haze

I was pleasantly surprised when I first received these leggings; they were much prettier than I expected!
Rainbow holographic on a light purple base. I bought these when they were first released a while ago now, but was yet to wear them.
They match perfectly to my Bleu Lavende Balenciaga bag- one of my favourites, such a chameleon; sometimes it looks blue, other times lilac depending on the lighting.

Hocus Pocus

Another Witch Please piece today; the Hocus Pocus Dress. 
When this dress was first sneaked I didn't think much of it, then I saw photos from the fitting and it looked so much better than the official photos.
Being black- I had to have it! I'm glad I was able to get it, being limited I was worried it would sell out. I really love it in real life! The skirt is thick and heavy which is good as it wont blow up like some of my BM skater dresses tend to do in the windy weather!
For this outfit I wore it with the chiffon kimono worn a couple of different ways- flowing loose and tied at the front in a bow.

Witch Please!

My Black Milk 'Witch Please' pieces are starting to arrive now. I ended up buying quite a lot from this release; including the 'Little Lies' collection. 
Here I wore my Little Lies Sweater, the one piece out of the four that I wasn't sure about. It is quite a large fit- this is the XXS and it is still roomy! 
I wore it over my BV Babydoll dress (I'm not a fan of exposed stomachs) So this will be used as a layering piece for me.
Also a new shoe arrival; the Jeffrey Campbell Scully. I pre-ordered these ones months ago! I finally received them yesterday! Love them! Next on my shoe wishlist is the boot version- Mulder.

Velvet Leopard

Here is a piece I am very lucky to own. The Black Milk Leopard Bodysuit!
I had only ever seen the blog photoshoot images of this one, so I was really surprised when I went on eBay and saw this just listed, with a buy it now price of only $95!!
I quickly snapped it up. It took so long to arrive thanks to dodgy Australia Post that I thought it was lost, so glad it wasn't!
It's made of the same material as the Leopard Leggings, super soft and shiny :)
I paired it here with my black velvet skater skirt and black & gold accessories.

Holey Tartan

I got everything I wanted from the Witch Please release, all but one. The Inside Out Dress. 
I went for the Little Lies collection first as I thought it would be a quick seller.
Until I manage to track one down elsewhere I will have to be happy with my other tartan BM pieces; including my Tartan Boyfriend Tee.
It is pretty oversized, which makes them good to pair with leggings, here I wore my Holey Side Leggings which I recently found on eBay. 
I really love these! I love all my Black leggings. They are always the ones I go straight to over the prints.
Again wearing my new favourite shoes; the Yes Galactics! I have 2 new pairs of shoes on the way from Solestruck! Look out..the obsession has begun again ;)

Shine & Stripes

Always love black & white together. Here I paired my Jailhouse bodysuit with the black PVC skirt. 
I love these skirts! But only for the cooler weather, I won't be making the mistake of wearing one on a hot day again ;)
Again wearing my Mary Chain heels, I wear these a lot! They are so huge but work well with my outfits lately.
Yesterday was a great day for my Black Milk collection; I added 10 new pieces thanks to the release of Witch Please! I really loved the 'Little Lies' collection. I love the designer stuff and being black and lace they were great for me! Can't wait for them to arrive!

Yes Galactic

I've always loved shopping on Solestruck, by far my favourite online store for shoes. When they started there own shoe line called Yes; I was excited to try them.
A lot of them were very much my style- dark colours and chunky platforms. 
I decided on three different pairs- here is the first.
Lace up platform boots very similar to my trusty Jeffrey Campbell Tardy's which I wear a lot! When I saw these on the site they were an instant want!
Then once again Black Milk used them for one of their shoots- funny how we have the same tastes ;)
So my two loves merged together and that decided it for me; I had to have them! 
As always Solestruck were wonderful! Easy to order and great customer service; I had my new shoes within a few days :)
I've already worn these out a few times- they didn't need any breaking in! They were so comfy right away and being a platform- easy to walk in too!
I got my regular size 7, which is what I usually buy in boots so I can wear socks with them. They fit try to size, pretty similar fit to the JC Tardy's actually.
So far so good! They are well made and very sturdy. Shiny patent leather without being too in-your-face. I love the square toe, something different from most of my other shoes. 
Overall these are awesome and I would definitely recommend them! I'm really happy with them and they will be worn a lot :)

Black/White

I got this sample Black Milk bodysuit quite a while ago now, first time wearing it.
It's a similar design to the Tartan/Wetlook one with the curve of the two materials.
That happens a lot; I buy all these things and forget about them for months. I'm such a hoarder, I really need to have a big clean out of all my Black Milk and other clothes & accessories. 
I love my UNIF Neo Boots! Seriously comfy platforms, so glad I was able to nab the last pair in my size! I have some new UNIF pieces on the way too! I'm really excited to get them :)

Welcome to the Darkside

What better outfit for May the 4th (Star Wars Day).
Darkside Swim! A BM piece I thought I would never own! Probably one of the rarest out there; a mash up of Star Wars & Pink Floyd album art, this one was quickly pulled from sales after copyright issues.
I've always loved it, such a weird and unique design and I love the rainbow against the black :)
I was lucky enough to get this one from a lovely girl who didn't wear it. 
I paired it with all black and my red PVC skater to match the red of the rainbow. 
First time wearing my new YES Galactic Boots! There are going to become a new favourite! They are so comfy and awesome (full review coming soon).

Illuminate

I finally added Illuminati Leggings to my collection! I had been after these for a long time, but every time they came up they were in a big size or went for way to much on eBay.
I bought these from a lovely sharkie along with a couple of other pieces. 
I'm really happy with them! I loved the print..obviously, seeing as I chose it for one side of my custom Inside Out Dress.
I paired them here with all black- pretty much all I wear now, I really should clean out my closet and ditch all the coloured pieces just sitting there. Make room for more new purchases ;)
