Mini dress I bought at the GLAY concert in November. In case you can't tell, it's a skull-apple that is being bitten down across the front. The sleeves are too short, but I get the feeling they're kind of supposed to be.
(P.S. Please ignore my laundry hanging outside. :P)
So for you folks still in Winter wonderland here are some Summer dresses to freshen things up!
Here are the dresses I bought at the Boxing Day Sales <3 dress
Dress 2 and 3) Casual Summer Tank Dress in a lace pattern and leopard print. They were a bargain at $20 for two dresses. Very comfy and casual, ideal for a lazy Summer day of catching up and ice coffee.
Dress 4) Little Black Dress with Zip. I've always wanted to try the zipper look but have found most zipper items to be uncomfortable to wear and some what trashy and provocative but this one- I love it!
The zip doesn't go all the way down so there is no fear that someone could completely unzip my dress and result in it flapping around like a coat (but I guess any sort of unzipping won't look good here either! :) I have red peep toe heels on in this picture.
This shall be my New Years Eve dress to welcome the fab year of 2010!
(unless I find something better! :P )

This is kind of a throw away post, I'm mostly just trying to find a good place in my room to set up my camera. This is an example of my average outfit. The striped shirt is one of 3 I got at Costco, and I wear them all the time because they have longer than average sleeves. <3 The skirt is one of those Uniqlo ones you can wear either as a skirt or a dress, this is my first time wearing it as a skirt. I think I lose a little fashion sense when the weather gets cold because all I care about is keeping warm...
I call it "shirts under stuff". So I have a nice Uniqlo t-shirt with a pink rocking horse on the front. It's good but a bit ... meh. So how do I make it better? Shove a shirt under it! Pair with some shirt shorts and high heels (not in picture..) and hey presto.
When I'm in Korea I'll take loads of pictures of my new hair extensions for the next post!

I am generally not "for" tit curtains but I think this top is acceptable belted, as it goes off the shoulder and contains copious amounts of black lace. I love the necklace too - jewelry is one of those things I never treat myself to, so I'm always happy to receive it as a gift.

I've always wanted a short paddington coat (just like Paddington bear!). As I've mentioned previously, I tend to stay away from too much black and recently I've been loving anything thats navy to replace black basics. I've been raving about it nonstop on itil <333333
I think it goes with almost everything I own for work. Its quite thin so it needs a lot of layering as it gets colder.
Here is the ugly chunky knit dress I always wear and complain about (But I can't seem to stop wearing??). It makes me look and feel like a short stumpy barrel while anything I wear underneath must be smoothed out or I'd look lumpy on top of stumpy.
And here is my white beret from my white tights outfit =]
It has a detatchable furry pompom as you can see me holding up in the picture.

I took a gigantic fashion leap and jumped into the deep end of white tights when I saw them for on sale for 30yen!
I listened to the fashion advice of some ITILers and I managed to put together this look:
I wore the outfit with some cream coloured flat short boots so you can't see my ugly toes! :P
I bought the beret after receiving suggestions from our very own Langus and Miss I :)
So was it a hit or a miss? Did I pull this look off okay?
I had my doubts whether this outfit would work but I got a boost of confidence when I walked out of school today with my boots and beret a group of girls screamed shrilly "KAWAIIIIIIII!!!" then some Japanese jibbrish while following me to my car then waving goodbye. :)
My kids are so cute.
For BennyBoi's sake I should say that I am actually slightly pigeon toed in real life :(

He's a lovely chappy who's on British tv. He used to be fat when he was a kid, and now he has shows on tv showing fat and ugly women how to look good in clothes that suit their size and shape.
By the way, he always calls boobs "bangers". It's Gok-talk.
This one is a little silly, but let's go with it.
One last one, even if it is a bit old

"uniform" in this case means "that outfit you always end up wearing when you don't know what to wear."
this is my magic dress. picked it up at H&M this summer. in this case, I wore it out in Nara to get raped by deer. it goes with everything. for fall: my terrorist scarf, fishnet tights, and big boots.

Maison Gilfy does everything right.
I've only been to one location - Parco in Kumamoto Shimotori - but everything is perfect. How to describe their stuff - maybe the perfect fusion of ギャル and "badass."
I'm mainly a big fan for the shoes/boots and consistent supply of studded leather bags.
The music choice is flawless too.
This is my fave shop. It's quite a large second hand shop that has some really awesome items. The thing that surprised me most was that their designer goods are reasonably priced (shame I'm not into them though).
My shopping outfit. Shopping chic! (I loved the lamp on the left there, but it was 8000yen!)
I also loved these shoes.. but they were too small!! These are very me though.
I think Cruella Deville has been donating here!!
Anyway, that's my favourite shop! What's yours?

Today I couldn't be arsed, and I know that this dress gets good reception so I went for it. It's all t-shirt cotton material so it's soft and warm. The cardigan makes it a little less stylish and makes me look bigger than I am (espec from the side) but I don't really care that much haha.

None of these are on theme but anyways~
On the left: I dressed up the other day to go out and wore my new boots! I'm wearing a shirt that was from some cheap gyaru shop in Namba, pinstriped shorts, tights, and my new engineer boots. The boots were on sale for 3000 yen and they aren't too cheap-looking like the other ones I've seen. The shop had LL size and although L size fit, LL was more comfortable and the shop lady gave me some insoles to make them fit better. :D
I feel weird bringing back up the thread, so I'm posting the boots here. Zara, these are the Demonia boots. They're size 24.5 but they fit my feet, which made me happy. They're pretty comfortable because they're wide and have a platform thing. The studded straps snap together on both sides.
Don't have any "trolling for ass on the weekend" outfits now, but maybe I'll try that out later if I'm not lazy.

You have to cater to your targets. The first outfit is obviously catered to an audience who appreciates Doc Martens and vaguely gothy things. I'd wear that to a goth club or Wacken. The dress was purchased last winter in Amsterdam at a street market.
The second is more all-encompassing. When trolling for ass it's important not to look like someone whose pimp gets a share of the ass which is trolled. Skimpy shirt + skimpy bottom is never classy. The top is just a t-shirt from H&M and the skirt was bought at an airport somewhere.
I bought a new jacket the other day, I felt I needed something a bit smarter than the big winter coat I have at the minute.
I wore that a couple weekends ago to go to an aquarium and sit around being hung over and then take a shinkansen home. It's a shirt, not a dress, but that's okay. I wore it with my fake Docs. It was a pretty kickass outfit. The captain liked it.

First of all, the pressing matter of how to wear scarves that are made of baby rabbits. This is how I wore mine this week; it was really cold so I had it on tighter than I usually do, but normally I fling it about my neck with that jacket and it looks nice.
Winter defense: I have new slippers. I think they are the bee's knees.
It's a bit dark so my apologies, but this is my current fave outfit. The kids say I look pretty in it too.. It's not as flattering as it could be though.. the elastic in the top of the skirt is all twisted and I can't seem to get it straight.
