Gypsy Love and Sherlock Holmes

So many posts in one week. Shocking, I know.  I feel like my wardrobe choices have been all over the map lately, even manic...but I cant help it since I've been vibing a lot of different things lately. Baby doll dress and thigh high socks will always be my tried and true staple but after seeing Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows last night, it changed things up a bit. I couldn't help but try on a skirt I'd acquired at Ruby Rose several months ago without cinching it with a belt at the waist (it's a little large and requires a lot of folding over) and making it a completely different look..That of a Gypsy!!! I want to be HER, seriously, can I be HER please!!!!  

Noomi Rapace is not only lovely but she is so cool with her horse back riding and knife throwing (not down with the tarot cards...yikesies) but she is tough and still feminine, gorgeous but not sluttified. Basically, she's pretty skippy!

Soooo, I've been listening to Beats Antique, Cocorosie, Gogol Bordello and other random gypsy violin players all is what it all has inspired...






I had a lovely embroidered vest that was quite the ticket but I felt it made the outfit more of a costume. Too bad. :-/ 

So there you have it, my sad, little teenage girl reason for a style change, the classic girl crush. "Oh isn't she sooooo cool!" Apparently, we don't grow out of that.

... now I just need a horse and the fighting skills (I already have the throwing knives)

Lovies and Lagoons,

A site??? What for?

Really!??!?! I would think you'd be seeing all the little things that are hinky and off and it would drive you crazy, I see things and it bugs me and I don't even know what I'm doing!!!
