SOMETIMES A LITTLE BIT TOO MUCH IS JUST RIGHT



Dress - Ebay
Sandals - Bianco
Nailpolish - Rimmel 811 'Pulsating'
Lipstick - Dior 565 'Diabolic Devlish Rose'
Brooch - Paprikaroja@Etsy (some burlesque-stuff there)


I went from sad to angry today due to some stuff. Instead of staying at home depressing myself with sad music I made myself a sunny mango-apple smoothie, went out in the sunshine and got myself a nice flower. And instead of dressing black I went for frills and colour, a little bit too much of everything -superpink lipstick, a kitchy accessory and my cheesiest shoes! They say "Love Me". I need that :)

The dress didn't make me happier though since it's a bit too small; a bit too short for my taste, and strangely enough, even though I'm not that booby (that's not really a word I know:), too small around the chest. (Ebay should have cyber fitting rooms ... quite often I read the measurement description and think "mjaaah, close enough". Works most of the time, but didn't work this one. Well, nine out of ten aint' bad :)




A friend of mine is directing a movie. Tomorrow evening I'll participate as an extra in a scene. The scenery of the shooting is of my taste... more of that later :)

du klär dig helt fantastiskt snyggt och det är en överraskning varenda gång man klickar sig in på din sida. Det är därför jag återkommer igen och igen..fortsätt precis som du gör och lys upp allt som en solros.

I'm sorry you're not feeling happy :( Putting on bright colours does help though, doesn't it?

For what it's worth, I think the dress looks lovely on you. If you don't feel comfortable in it, though, that's another story. The shoes are gorgeous!

Nostalchic : oj tack nu bev jag glad!

A Cat of Impossible Colour : Thank you. I was wondering if I could somehow stretch the dress out a bit because I still like it, hmmm...

Lady Smaggle said...

Oh those shoes are divine! Thank you so much for lovely award! I'll pass it on today!

esme and the lane way said...

As soon as I saw the dress I thought pretty-pretty-pretty-pretty! It looks great. I hope you have a better day today. And I hope the dress becomes more comfortable!

This outfit is a killer. Wonderful use of colour and embellishment. And if someone is being all negative, all you have to say is "talk to the shoes."

Erin said...

I agree, the dress looks fantastic, you can't tell that it is uncomfortable in any way. What a great way to alleviate a bad day - yummy food, a beautiful flower and a pretty outfit :).

Vintage Darling : Tack skall du ha. Det blev faktiskt bättre nu, kanske skorna hjälpte :D

Heather : btu be careful, ebay shopping is rather addictive...

Esme and the Lane Way : thanks

SuperKawaiiMama : I like that. Talk to the shoes, yeah :)

Erin : oh thanks

Great dress - you look awesome!

WJ said...

Gorgeous dress and shoes...your outfits always compliment your tattoos so nicely!

Anushka said...

I love your outfit, the colour of the dress looks wonderful against your hair. I'm sorry that you had a bad (sad) day, but I think you found the right way to get through it. I always try to wear nice things and put on makeup when I'm feeling blue - sometimes it works.

Even if you don't feel good, at least you look good! Love the dress :) Next time I'm having a lousy day I try to put on something yellow.

The Clothes Horse said...

Oooh, I love that dress and the shoes and the brooch is so charming as well! Thanks so much for the award!

I've become addicted to your fashion blog. You're unbelievably stylish and your blog is the real deal. May I ask who is behind your tattoos?

Lovely dress ! I like the mix between the green of the dress and the pink of your lips...

Theremina said...

Fantastic shoes! And I'm also an adept of the flower-buying therapy, I don't know why but flowers always cheer me up. Hope it'll work for you too!

ann said...

that dress looks fabulous on you :)

Pretty Pirate said...

I hope you feel better, seriously though, that dress does look amazing on you. I don't think it is too short, but alas, you have to feel comfortable. Cheer up beautiful!!

That Girl said...

Thank you all lovelies! I've had it much better now. SOmetimes when you get really angry it almost makes you happy again since you get so energetic. Strange...

WJ : thanks. Somtimes I'm afraid to wear too bright stuff because of the tattoos too, so that it won't bee too much (since sometimes too much is just too much :)

Anonymous : Thank you :)
It's Sailor Andy @ Legacy who has done most of them!

Å så söta skor!
Överdelen på klänningen är jättefin (trots att den är lite liten - vilket inte syns ett dugg), går det inte att klippa av kjoldelen och göra en blus av den?

Lilla Fröken said...

Vilken underbar klänning och brosch. Diggar din stil tjejen!

the freelancer's fashionblog said...

Maximalin : Tänk att jag inte kom på detdär själv. Kanske jag faktist borde ta och göra det! Tack för tipset :)

Lilla fröken : tack skall du ha!

gem fatale said...

I adore this outfit!
I tried to do your lovely fringe the other day (my hair is basically cropped with a long-ish fringe) so it looked hilarious! Completely bizarre. But the process was fun.

OI vitsi mitä mekkoja. :) pitääkin heti pistää tilaukseen jotain kivaa. Harmi vaan kun noi on punnissa niin näyttää halvalta, mutta kun vaihtaa euroiks ni kallista on :D
