As usual, I am very late with trends! I’m wearing lace up flats in October man…at the end of October even!!! Sigh…..
I’ve been dying over the lace up shoes trend for quite some time now and I think there is something very appealing and sensual about tying stuff around your legs, not pizza maybe, tying pizza on your leg would look weird…and tasty…! If “Fifty Shades of Dumb” has taught me anything, is that:
1. I can write an erotic novel about a virgin potato and I’d become famous!
2. Bows and laces tied around your body like some sad imitation of a sausage are actually pretty!
But then again, I knew this waaaaay before I was able to read dreary novels about people drenched in childhood rooted emotional problems. In fact, when I was a teen my dream was to do this:
This is called corset piercing and even now at the age of 26 I still consider it to be rather pretty! You’d think that I would develop more sanity after 10 years of pretending to be an adult, changing light bulbs, waiting in line at the bank, that health insurance thingamajig and other confusing stuff, but this blog is called Beauty In Insanity for a reason you know!
My recent love for lace up shoes was injected straight into my online shopping basket and I ordered these leopard beauties from Choies the first time I saw them. As I was cheerfully placing my order, not even one electrical pulse went through my atrophied brain that the weather would change and these tiny, skin baring flats, wouldn’t be weather appropriate. To my utter dismay and surprise October turned out to be a cold month, who knew autumn is chilly? Go figure…totally counter-intuitive! But since I was super happy and excited for my leopard lace up flats, I played the delusional card and wore them despite the cold outside. IT WAS A MISTAKE! The only thing saving me from a frostbite was the fact that I wasn’t outside for too long, still, at least I managed to wear my new flats before stashing them away for next year…………SIIIIIIIIGH………….
Let’s leave the frostbites aside for a while and talk about what else I was wearing, since I have a few favorite items here, which deserve their personal spotlight on the internet!
I found this Totoro chiffon tank top at a second hand store and bought it few months ago. This is the first time I’m wearing it, since the fit is somewhat shapeless and I didn’t like how it looked on me or how to style it without hiding the cutesy print. Even though I’m not a big fan of Studio Ghibli I love “Tonari no Totoro” ! The movie was extremely adorable and more importantly, the Japanese was very easy to digest, I understood almost everything without subtitles which is HUUUUGE for my nonexistent Japanese language knowledge. So I gave it a shot and wore the top with my lace up leopard flats and a newly thrifted cobalt blue cardigan. I think it looks very cute and cozy, and I also found the same top online on Storenvy for super cheap so anyone itching to get it, go for it.
Another new in is this red belt choker necklace which is a pleasant color garnish for the blue cardi and made the outfit a delicious, messy bowl of colors, just the way I liiiiike it, aha aha! ^_^
The green backpack is again second hand and I’ll mention more about it on an upcoming thrift haul post! The only thing I’m gonna say now is that it’s super trashy and damaged but I still bought it because of reasons unknown to the Universe….And the reason you probably can’t see the damage is because I plastered like a thousand shiny vintage effects here! Well, la-dee-da!
Nothing else worth mentioning here, except my messy hair which I totally intended to mess up! Yup! All those people parading around their “messy” hairdos, which look like hair from a modelling TV show can go munch on a cracker, my messy do is the real crappy deal people! And that’s it for today’s outfit post! Lemme know what do you guys think of lace up shoes and how’s the weather there? Yes, I really need this information!
