Pretty Things

Oooh, I'm so tired. I'll be sure to miss tomorrows morning practises!

Here is a pretty puzzle by Ravensburger or something. I'm no puzzle maniac, but I just wanted to hang this pretty pic on my wall!

(Yeah, no photogrpher's skills here.)

And these shoes arrived from post few days ago, second-hand but in the perfect condition.

A girl must have her summer shoes, right?

And then these two, just 'cos they were laying around at the right time:
-ImagineFX special, about drawing anatomy
-First book of Brian Jacgues' Redwall stories

Redwall is pretty interesting book series. The books are mainly concentrated around the happening of an abbey which is led by different animals. But it's not a children's book, there is lot's of violence and death and so on. Very interesting, I must say.

I also tried to get a pic of my long 'mermaid' pvc skirt which I bought from Huuto, but the pics failed a big time. I haven't had a pvc skirt before, they have never felt like right to my style. But now I can't wait to get to wear this! Mmm, maybe at Lumous Gothic Festival that takes place in few weeks, hmhmhmm.

Shopaholical Attack

I was supposed to save up to get a jacket-skirt -combination by Lip Service, but I accidently wandered into a second-hand shop where some people had dumped some pretty things, and how could I have resisted their call when they had so lil' prices written on their tags? Aww, my self-control sucks.

So today just stuff that I have gathered~
With guaranteed bad quality of the photos~~

The dress is by Hell Bunny, cost: 2€. Who ever left it, I love you, for you made my day bright.
(Though I need to sew the halter better.)
The chess-square mini skirt by Mercy: cost ...something between 2 and 6€.
(I remember when these were sold at Backstreet, I liked it a lot, but didn't buy for my friend bought one.. and now I saved it nevertheless. Eumm.)
The third one was 2€, made by random.

The top looks a bit wrecked, but that's just my fault, for I didn't notice it when taking the pic. It's mostly pvc, lightly boned thing by random (yes, I'm just too lazy to go and fetch it to check the tag), which lacked the thread from front and costed 4€. It looked rather nice (no, I'm not wearing it without something long and black under it, yeez).
The skirt was left by the same person as the Hell Bunny dress above. Didn't notice the maker, cost: 1€. ( <3)

Lookie, lot's of layers and ruffle~ Omnomnom~

I also bought few easy-going shirts and two quite common skirts by 1-2€ each, but they are getting washed now, so no pics.

An older finding. It's a bit too big for me though, should have realized it there.. (3€). But it was just hanging from my arm when I was leaving, and it radiated steampunk a bit and.. fine, maybe I'll just sell it in some point..

These weren't second-hand but anyways. Asplund's cross in blood red. It's really dark against black, bwahhaha. And Christina Aguilera perfume, a little bottle. For I didn't have money for the big, pretty thing. I don't use parfumes that much, but I love the bottles. And the fragrance is pleasant too. Maybe I'll lure both this one's big version and the 'night' version of the parfume into my shelf. I might use the both, and they are pretty bottles. Yup.

The butterflies are from H&M, the earrings from Bijou Brigitte. I love camee stuff, pretty (not with gold or brown thou, that much, hrr). One for hair, rest for crafts. Quess which.

An abandoned book, the last part of Potters in finnish, from antiquarian bookshop, 7€. I read the english version the night it was sold here the first time (oh, fine, finished it at morning, since I was falling asleep), but it never felt like a right time to buy this. Now my collection is happy.

This red babe is new one too: Korg's SV-1. Quite delicious piano sounds. (Obviously I didn't pay that myself. That story includes unfair sellers, Triton Extremes, stubborn, pissed-off people etc not feeling like writing much today but stuff.)

And this is some fabric that my sister's friend brought to me with a picture of a skirt. So I'm making one for her. Yeah.

Vivienne Westwood stuff

[Westwood's sites]
[hervia] sites where to buy VW's stuff.

Mmm, so nice jewelry, mmm such infernal prices.
It would be a dream-come-true -situation if these were somewhere as second hand when the seller wouldn't understand to put high prices on them.. Yeah, right, as if that would happen.

These ones I might really order some day during this year still, something I could afford, and look how cute they are!

And look at that! How sweetly detailed thing. The price is a killer though, 259.20$. Ouch. Keep it in the collection 'till I can afford something like this!

And the almost legendary armor ring. So nice~ It has gained some replicas too so I wonder if there was any that would be of a good quality >__>.

Ever heard of a manga NANA? Well, it made my love towards Westwood's stuff even worse than it was before. A wonderful comic, oh yes.

And this has nothing to do with Westwood, but since I don't wish to make a separate post for this:
There is this band, AFI, with which I fell in love one pretty day when I saw their music video and after that their songs have always been carried in my iPod (even though I never list them in 'my favorite bands', I still like them). I hadn't listened them for a while until last night when I decided to check what's new with them.
Eum, half a year ago a new album, and, well, too soft and too 'popish' to me, but I'll stay listening the older things and maybe they'll now and then make some songs that will be aggressive enough. Medicate wasn't bad, after listening it few times, I pretty much liked it, but the rest.. Oh well.
One thing lead to another and another, ending with me staring at this:

Would I look like a supporter of some... religious thing if I walked around with that?

You see, the singer of AFI had established [Zu-Boutique] with mostly t-shirts, but also some jewelry among which there was this. (Davey also wears one in their music video to the song Medicate.) Since it's small and I could already see me wearing it in a thin chain long enough to reach my waist, I couldn't help but think it cute. But it's a cross, upside-down. ;___;. Couldn't it just be a piece of jewelry to everyone's eyes?

But it's also having some weirdly high price.. But I still think it's cute. (And bloody limited, I hate when I like limited stuff I can't afford.) Mmm, maybe I should just go and buy another ankh-cross and put it hanging from a ridiculously long chain to cool my brains from weird whims >__>.

Visited the F+F's sites

I was having good time at strollng around different fashion blogs and nice sites with good-looking clothing. In some point I ended up at F+F's sites, which I hadn't visited for a while.
This bag absolutely stunned me! The most beautiful music instruments in the world are violins, cellos and grand pianos. Hmm, and harps are epic too.

So pretty in white, but in black also.. I wonder which one would I go after if I had money~

This is a sweet jacket as well. In black, I'd say. Heum.

Then two pretty dresses:

There is also few shirts and one gorgerous long skirt I'd love to have, but let's not spam too much in this post. So pretty.
