Black Monster in the Corner

Important matters: 

1. Google reader is shutting down. *pause. weep. get over it.* Yes, they're finally shutting Google reader down on 1 July, 2013. It's a sad sad day, but guess what? I switched to Bloglovin. I finally opened an account on Bloglovin! I've actually always wanted to, but I just didn't want to dabble in all sorts of social media. Anyhoo, come join me on Bloglovin! 

Would love to see you'll there. 

Follow me on Bloglovin

Also, please leave your Bloglovin links here so I can check em out? :P 

2. New blog layout and design! You must have noticed that I've played around with the blog layout. Figured out how to work with basic HTML and sat up till 2 am working on it. Tell me what you think? I was going for a plain, spring look. My mood and tastes vary according to the weather et all. Of course, given it's study holidays where you're supposed to do everything else except study. 

What do you think of the new look?

Coming to today's outfit. 

There's a story behind each outfit and the inspiration. As I've said before, inspiration is everything. I don't really know what inspired me to do this, however I just felt like it one fine day and went ahead and did it. Mom was pretty surprised as she began shooting, and even asked me what I had in mind. 

Mom: What are you wearing?
Me: You know me *grins*
Mom: Yes, but this is just so different.
Me: Muahahaha.
Mom: I'm not scared of you. 
Me: You are, you are, let's click pictures.
Mom: Fine, go ahead and amuse me. 

Now you're freaked aren't you? Well, I shot this a while back but for some reason it kept getting postponed. I showed a picture from the shoot to my friends and they were pretty flabbergasted too. It's funny. Usually, people make comments on my outfits. Good. Bad. Weird. Something? For once, no one actually said anything. But, I gathered a lot from their eyes and expressions. 

Anyhoo, I shan't bug you anymore. Skip to the pictures, shall we?

Black lips are a very fall thing. I know, I know. I'm stuck in fall and I refuse to move. But, when have trends stopped me from wearing what I want to, when I want to?

Paired my dancey maxi with a comfy sweatshirt, braided my hair and added black lips and winged eyes to mix a ton of people into one look. The girl next door, Lady Gaga and of course ME. 

They say: 

Don't do dramatic eyes and lips together. Choose one. BROKE THE RULE.
People on the bulky side should avoid wearing skirts with lots of pleats and volume. BROKE THE RULE.
Don't mix many different styles into one. BROKE THE RULE. (I've got such a contrast of styles in this outfit).

Rule breaker much?

Won't say anything else.

You talk. 

What do you think? 

Sweatshirt, Maxi worn as skirt, Jacket: American Apparel; Bangles: ZOVI and thrifted
