"NO FUN, MY BABE. NO FUN."

Listening to: No Fun- The Sex Pistols

Several weeks ago I mentioned how my life had taken a bit of a bad turn (and received such amazing comments in return!) and I FINALLY feel like I have a plan formed in my life. Although I am not quite ready to share it with you (I need to get it all sorted and together ect. as I only decide on this last night but I am very VERY happy now :)

Which is a good thing for Chris as I have been taking out my frustrations on him and snapping when ever something upset me- which had nothing at all to do with him. Such examples were my awful wardrobe (that since being installed I have only been able to use a foot of), broken hangers, my dirty car, being out when its cold/ dark/ raining, the news, someone passing comments/staring at me (which happens a lot!) and many more. Basically everything felt like it was falling apart and I was just ... lost. Now i have a plan I am SO much happier!!

I really really REALLY cannot wait to share  it with you all!



Pink slip: Charity shop (similar here)
Jacket: Charity shop (similar here)
Corset: eBay
Tights and Socks: Primark
Wedge Sneakers: Topshop
Studded Garters: DIY
Earrings and Rings: Topshop
Necklace: Gift

As I was finally feeling a bit better about myself I finally got things done. I glued back my creepers, altered more clothing, repainted my goddess crop (did not fare well in the washing machine- an accidental trip) and FINALLY got round to fixing my studded garters. I mentioned that I made these to wear for LFW but my legs slimmed down (how I have no idea, possibly because I was making them originally in jeans or something). They deserved a day out in town, and helped make a very girls pink slip a little less soft.

I love my velvet corset (mostly because I finally get to go bra less resting my shoulders) but its a right pain to get on and off. Corsets are not a single person task- the person wearing it in fact has next to no input in lacing it up. Chris has this task down- although he took me seriously where I told him I could finish it before he had tied the laces (so I can act like I done it) and stood there for like 5 minutes struggling. But worth it completely. Being boned its supportive, comfortable and tied correctly gives the perfect waist shape (not that I need it- Have a fantastic figure- ha ha). The only down side to this (other than needing someone to help me in and out) is I have became obsessed with What Katie Did.


I love the leopard pint corset, and the Union jack too (and as a rule I'm not a union jack fan), and I dream of this Sailor corset. Or maybe one (or both) of these pretty black corsets.

  20. So retro-badass-chic! Love this look. I just got an awesome vintage corset (that may or may not be socially acceptable in public, we shall see, haha) from a thrift store, with a more demure Nasty Gal one coming soon! Fantastic look!
