Outfit of the Day ~ manic pixie dream girl.

Suspender tights ~ New Look
Creepers ~ ebay
Velvet skater skirt ~ Primark via ebay
'Hello Angel' top ~ DIY 
Floral garland ~ Claire's Accessories
Dark brown lipstick ~ Coffee, Black by Portland Black Lipstick Co.

The other day I pretty much wore this outfit to a rehearsal and one of my best friends told me I looked like a hippy goth, which I quite liked as a description. The thought also occurred to me that I look like some kind of Blade Runner-esque hooker, sort of Pris inspired, totally unintentional but I quite like the comparison. I wore it out again yesterday when the boyfriend and I went to Brighton, which was actually my second time in one week, I went earlier with Bekki and Charley where we discovered a new favourite cafe called Cocoa (ever tried it? It's amazing!), ate macaroons and shopped - it was pretty damn fun. When I went with the boyfriend it was a lot busier (which was weird 'cause it was a weekday) which put me a bit on edge, plus when we decided to take some outfit photos - after we'd had a nice wander, it got really windy and kind of horrible, so we decided against doing them there which kind of sucks because there are so many cool places to take photos. In the end we went to one of the many woods around where we live - unfortunately there aren't any good places to take photos in either of our houses so generally it has to be somewhere outside.
As for the actual outfit, I'm not really sure how I feel about it...I liked it the other day but when I wore it yesterday I wasn't really sure. Mainly I have issue with the top, which I made about 2 years ago during a fit of (questionable) creativeness. As you can see it's pretty shoddily cut which means it hangs in a way that doesn't please me all the time, but you can see where I go inspiration for my blog title (I've always been obsessed with the idea of wings and angels and the like). Also, I would like to warn you not to purchase suspender tights from New Look unless you like the instant laddered look - the thin section at the top gets ruined so easily. I'm considering investing in a Pretty Polly pair, anyone had any experiences with them?

That's all for now! I hope you're all having a lovely summer.


  1. Love this look and LOVE the hair!!!! <3

  2. I love this look!
    Oh I have a question for you: When you bleach your hair, do you use the coconut oil everyone's so amazed by? Or have you ever used it?

    1. No I haven't? Is it any good?

    2. They say so, it helps cope up with bleach damage due to the lauric acid of coconut. I want to bleach my hair but I don't know if I should go for it without the coconut oil hmm... What would you suggest, if my hair is in great condition?

    3. If your hair is generally good condiiton just make sure you condition it a lot, and maybe find an oil treatment as well (like V05), if you're particularly worried.
      You could always try the coconut oil if you really want to.

  3. great ouftit! I had the same green colour in my hair a while ago :)

    1. :) thank you! It's a lovely colour, isn't it?

  4. Creepers, cruella hair? What is not to love ♥
