Some more of my vial pendants, they are a real saving grace when it comes to Christmas gifts!

I think it's been a week since my last post, a record. I have been having major issues with my camera. An outfit that I like in the mirror will look really off in photos, my face included. My camera's one saving grace is that is takes stunning macro images.
I celebrated my 20th birthday on the 15th in true young person acting elderly style. We went to the planetarium and spend an hour looking at ducklings, and although the weather was dull I had a lovely time

This is my outfit for my friend's "Retro Record Party" tomorrow where we are all dressing retro and, well, bringing along old records to play in celebration of her record player finally working. I have some fake eyelashes that I will attempt to wear on the night and I'm thinking I'll go a bit more "Twiggy" with my make up but I haven't got much practice so we'll see how I go. The dress is from the clearance store for a usually pricey vintage shop, it was only $20! The shoes are my favourite pair I think, they are the highest things I dare to wear (actually not very high at all but I'm a wuss) BUT they are also incredible comfortable because of the strap and the wedge heel.(They also look much better in real life)

This dress is actually maternity wear, according to the label that says "Motherhood". I had been looking for a simple dress to sew my collar onto and this one eventually came along and I think it's just perfect. You can sort of see my feather bottle pendant here that I've been wearing religiously over the past few days

Some webcam photos, just for the hell of it. Oh and look, I finally (sort of) mastered liquid eyeliner! I remember the first time I wore it when I was 12 and I put it all round my eyes so as to make a "statement" because I (thought)I was rebellious and he told me off and said that if I came into his house looking like that, he would think I was a robber and call the police on me.

I got this dress for $8 and didn't need to alter it at all which pretty much makes it my best find ever. The shoes I got from Etsy when I was in Auckland last year because I couldn't find any shoes I wanted there so I looked online and there they were, asking for me to buy them
