Outfit Post: "Big Dreams, Gangster…"

“Big dreams, gangster,  Said you had to leave to start your life over…”  – Lana del Ray, Blue Jeans SHOES: SAM EDELMAN SKIRT: INLOVEWITHFASHION TOP: AMERICAN APPAREL BELLY CHAIN: EBAY  TALON CUFF: EBAY STONE CUFF: PRIMARK CHAINS: EBAY, HEALING EARTH, & GALWAY BEAD STORE I think it’s probably getting pretty evident by my Lookbook titles that I’m loving Lana del Ray’s album lately. Sure, I’m also listening to other stuff too, but her lyrics make for some pretty good outfit titles, don’t you think? I like to think myself as somewhat of gangster, and I most certainly have big dreams 🙂 I’m so happy the weather is getting warmer, even if only enough to finally  be able to lose all those layers of clothing for a few decent photos! This is my favourite kind of outfit, a dash of boho, a dash of grunge, and a nice dose of trinket jewellery 🙂 This…

INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY & My Blog’s First Birthday!

Just a quick non-fashion related post for you all, I have two wonderful things to celebrate today! Firstly, today is International Women’s Day!  I don’t claim know what exactly this day means to each of you, some of you might not even care much, but it really is a day that we should all be proud of. First established in 1909, International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating 100 year’s of women’s achievements in the social, economic, and political sphere. Today we celebrate women of the past, present and future, all that we have achieved and also, we acknowledge all that there is left to do.   As a someone who is involved with various aspects of the media, (blogging, modeling, journalism, and presenting) it is difficult to ignore the inequalities and misrepresentation that our gender still suffers.  For any of you who are interested, here is a trailer for a…
