Suede me please


Wearing: tan suede vest (vintage 359 King), knit dress (mum's from the 80s), grunge boots (eBay), belt (vintage), assorted jewellery & accessories.

--> HYPE HERE <--

I am so happy it's the weekend! This week dragged on a tiny bit don't you think?!... The sun has been kind enough share it's rays as of late, though the cold still bites you hard in the evenings - oh you deceitful sun! You are such a tease and leave me having to layer up with 3-zillion singlets then sweat it out on the train ride home. Though in these last few days of winter, I took on the opportunity to sport a winter knit and dive into some suedey goodness. I totally forgot I had this flat-chain gold necklace and matching bracelets! Hand-downs from my mum, I see them lasting a life time - I should definitely wear them more often! And suede, you make my eyes light up just like the silvery texture of velvet! (my recent obsession!)






On a final note, I got to admit I'm a bit anxious about confronting Monday - as I will be visiting the Orthodontist in the quest to get BRACES! ahhhhhh don't you just cringe at the thought of it! My teeth are actually pretty good - have always been straight, top and bottom, but in the last year or so after my wisdoms were taken out, my front lower teeth started to shift and go a bit crooked. You can't see it when I smile, but I can't help but to always fidget at them and touch them constantly!!! crazyyyyy compulsive, I need to stop and get them fixed. Hopefully they won't have to be on for a long time - but when I think about it in the end, it will only be 6 months-1 year of my life having train tracks, than the rest of my life with a 100% perfect smile! :D

Monday will only be a follow up of how my teeth are going, then hopefully we can laid down the tracks soon! eeeekkkk! makes me nervous just thinking about it!

Has anyone else had braces??!.....or has them now even??!!






Happy weekend!

  14. That dress is sooo cute and I love it with those boots.

    I have braces now and have had them on for over 2 years now. I just had my wisdom teeth out 2 weeks ago so I am getting sooo close to getting my braces off that I'm starting to get really anxious. They can be such a pain, but like you said, worth it.

  16. there is something very pocahontas-y about this outfit which i love. good luck with the braces. when i was 11 or 12 i signed up for them, but two years later when it was 'my turn' i chickened out and have been living with a massive overbite still.

    these days i just tell myself: it gives my mouth some character. the perfect smile, though, is worth it :)
