tux





skirt: primark
dress worn as top: via ebay
rings: jwlry & local market stall
nails: nubar rosso

Went a little tuxedo gothic today, but I liked it. I also put my lip piercing back in, I've had it done since I was 16, just randomly decided to put it back in today in town.

  1. Do the piercings not close up? I'd noticed you had them before, I kinda like them! Love the top and the nail varnish. And is that a scar on your left arm? I have one in EXACTLY the same place.. But on my right! :p

  8. Cute look, I've been craving long hair again and you posts never help :p love your hair.
    The lip stud looks good, I like that better than the ones you used to have at the top. (Maybe because I have mine at the bottom too)

  42. I've always loved lip piercings that were off to the side a bit... I wanted one when I was younger but I have this weird vein and I was always scared they'd stab it when piercing! Haha you look lovely. :)

  61. Aww cuuuutest black and white look ever! :)
    I didn't know you have a lip piercing. So you can take it out and the hole doesn't close and you can put it back in when you like? I have a lip piercing too and the hole starts to close only 2-3 hours after taking out the ring :-/

  70. I was going to comment like WOAHH you have a lip piercing!?? I have never noticed that before! But then I actually read and was glad I didnt leave the intended comment as I would have looked an idiot XD
    I really like it, makes the whole outfit look edgier, if thats possible just for one stud!

  74. I love your blog!
    It's probably my favourite & mainly the reason I recently started my own.
    Your style is so amazing and similar to mine (I spend wayyy to muc money in Primark, H&M, Topshop and New Look!!)
    I would be so grateful if you took a look at mine, still a work in progress but hopefully it will become as great as yours!!

    Thanks :)
