Ugly Beautiful… Life Through the Looking Glass.

15 Dec

Charlotte from Girlnextdoorfashion.


I love this skirt that was sent to me through The Lovely Ones, our super duper clothing swap. This came from the delightful Charlotte, of girlnextdoorfashion. She definitely rocks this item better than me, but the few days I’ve possessed it I’ve admired it, and have been sad about the prospect of letting it go.  I feel a kindred spirit with said blogger. We were pointed towards each other by a friend at, and weirdly enough are from half an hour from each other in England, but are both now on other side of the world. Let’s see how I decided to style it…


Alice in Wonderland Tee: Zara, Cardigan: Primark, Skirt: from girlnextdoorfashion through The Lovely Ones, Shoes: Topshop, Hat: Korean Subway Shop.

I love the surroundings of our apartment, they are so… Korean! And in a way, they are so ugly, that they are enchanting and beautiful to me. I’ve always been that way inclined; to find appeal in things that most would find unattractive. I feel there is an honesty in it, and that is what I need; in people, in clothes, in my passions… in my life. Perfection is completely boring. And so from now on my outfit photos will generally always be taken a stones throw from our humble abode. It is perfect to me. It shows me what life used to be like, before we walk ten minutes towards the subway and we’re struck with Dunkin’ Donuts, Burger King and Starbucks and the real world of mass consumerism rears it’s ugly head once more.
