acquisitions // pastel and white

February 15, 2014



1 Pastel drop-waist dress, thrifted. I was looking for a mori kei dress for an outfit post to compliment the mori girl inspired makeup tutorial that I did, but ended up buying a fairy kei one instead. (You can see the outfit post here.)



2 Cream eyelet dress, also thrifted. These types of dresses are quite common, but I found the collar + pattern on this one quite cute.



3 Punk Rave top, bought off of a friend. Visual kei and rock style clothing almost always come in black, and white pieces are sometimes quite hard to come by, so I snagged this the moment I saw my friend posted it online. Love, love, love.


4 The cuuuuutest cat ear beanie ever. So happy I finally found one that comes in white!



5 Last but definitely not least, BLACKMORAL white T-shirt from CODA!!!! *happytears*

My purchases from December and January. Ever since I sold off almost half of my closet at a friend's garage sale, I've started buying new pieces for my wardrobe. One of my resolutions for 2014 is to stop spending so much on unnecessary things, so I made sure to only buy pieces that are either white or pastel. This way I can save both money and closet space. If I like something, if it's not white or pastel, I put it back where I got it. This method's worked quite well so far; compared to before I've spent significantly less on clothes. I haven't been buying anything makeup-related recently, aside from my Sigma F88, mainly because I want to use up the stuff I have first. I have three eyeshadow palettes, all three are neutrals, so I want to use those up first because I'm pretty sure I don't need a fourth one. Also these days I've been wanting to focus on skincare, so I try not to look at makeup whenever I'm at the mall. The only thing I've bought that's skincare-related is sunscreen though, and I couldn't be bothered to grab it to take photos ;;

What I want to talk about right now though, is my first ever BLACKMORAL shirt aka MY FAVORITE PURCHASE OF LAST YEAR, HANDS DOWN. (Also, the most expensive, wtf. The price of one of these babies is ¥4000, and that's not even including shipping and other fees ; v ; *dies*) For those who don't know, BLACKMORAL is a line of goods produced by Ruki, vocalist of the GazettE, aka my favorite band in the world yo. Every time the GazettE begins touring (usually sometime after an album is released), a set of tour-only goods are released under the name BLACKMORAL. In my opinion, the ones released during the final lives are always the best ones, so I'm really glad I was able to snag this shirt! Special thanks to Sibey, of course, for helping me out!!!! You have all my love and eternal gratitude (If you guys want to order goods from the lives, you have to hit her up. If you want a link to her shop, just shoot me an email!)
