I am a gold addict. I love all things that glitter and sparkle. When you combine gold with different textures of black like I’ve done here, it just gives off this too-cool-for-school vibe that rockstars always seem to have and I’m constantly trying to achieve (you know, when I’m not trying to dress all “kawaii”).
This peplum top may look olive green in pictures and on the listing, but it’s actually a very nicely constructed gold mesh with a black background (so it gives off the olive hue). It’s best to match this top with bronze accessories but I’m not afraid to play with different shades of gold.
I got my hair newly dyed yesterday and did a little Russian Roulette with the henna packets. The result of mixing a bright orange with a dark red turned into a bright apple red and I’m not sure that I like it this saturated, but a change is a change. I could never be without red hair ever again. I love how it makes me feel; fiery and confident and every time I look at myself in the mirror under a blazing sunlight, I feel instantly energized. You know I’m a big advocate of natural, unmodified beauty (because humans are naturally gorgeous just the way they are), but this is the one exception that I couldn’t live without, and I do it for myself, not others.
Here’s the rundown of what I’m wearing:
Gold Choker – Equip, $5

Belt – Jay Jays, 80c
Gold Peplum Top – eBay, $8 (update: Found it on AliExpress!!)

Ezywalkin Leather Heels – Payless Shoes, $29
Total: $63.30. Yaaay!
It’s good to know that I’m not losing my touch yet. Uni has been so busy around this period that I honestly don’t know what to do with myself and I barely have the time to blog. This is the last semester of my degree and I’ve got one month to do, so everything has yet to hit the ceiling, but it’ll get there! If I duck away for a week or more sometime during November, fear not; I’m just running around like a headless chicken (complete with the wild arm flailing) trying to reason the meaning of life and why the hell universities still force us to do group assignments, and more specifically why every one of my subjects this semester has a compulsory team element to it.
