If I Lived in Yharnam OOTD

Hi everyone,

Today I thought I’d share a little OOTD post, something I want to try doing more regularly as they are easier to photograph and write than some of my other posts. My schedule is going to be very tight for the next few months but I really want to try and put out more content.

Today’s outfit was inspired by my Bloodborne shirt and what I would probably wear on a very casual day in Yharnam. Continue reading

Christmas Day OOTD

Welcome to this week’s post detailing my Christmas Day OOTD. Every year for the past 5 years I’ve made myself a special outfit to wear at Christmas and of course this year was no exception.

A New Skirt OOTD

Hi all,

Sorry I’ve missed a couple of posts, I haven’t been feeling too well recently and have had a few days off work. Anyway last week I managed to rustle up myself a new skirt out of some gorgeous fabric I found so I thought I would show it off in an OOTD post!

The fabric is a gorgeous wool blend with a diamondish pattern in pinks, blues and purples! It really reminds me of a wet city in the evening too, as if you were looking into a puddle seeing the reflection of the buildings and cars and people all around.

I did my eye makeup to match and I used both my Urban Decay and Smashbox palettes, both of which I’ve previously reviewed on here.

I’m also wearing my new lipstick which is Blue Velvet by Jeffree Star Cosmetics. I had the shade Redrum and I adored the shade and formula, it’s now completely empty now. I felt like something different so I went with this beautiful bright blue. I think it’s a really wearable shade, particularly on me, it’s not too bright and I already wear a lot of blue.

I took my photos at work today as there isn’t any sunlight left by the time I get home anymore. I’ve also reviewed the sweater I am wearing here, this is still an all time favourite and I hope to get at least one more colour of it for winter this year.

I actually made this skirt so that I could wear the pattern two ways. The above pictures show the colours going vertically, and below horizontally.

It isn’t a hug difference but I really liked how both ways looked so I wanted the option! Also I still get a pocket whichever way I wear it which is handy.

I was rushing out of the house and I decided I wanted a bit of jewellery so I chose this amazing Jubly-Umph necklace. I bought it last year I think and it is ‘The Teardrop Lighthouse’ a limited edition necklace which I am so glad I bought. I really love lighthouses and this is such a sturdy but delicate looking piece.

I love putting large circular pockets on my skirts! I find patch pockets much more convenient and it adds a point of difference.

I’m wearing my recently reviewed Columbine stockings in the shade Misty. Also apologies for the thread on my leg, had I known I would have removed it! Also I love heeled boots with some fur cuffs as the weather gets colder, I’ve gone through this is my 2nd or 3rd pair and it’s just a style I am obsessed with. This pair is getting a little tattered though so I need to start looking for some more.

Sorry it wasn’t too exciting today. I’ll try to get something up for Thursday otherwise it might just end up being next Monday. I really like this skirt and this outfit, it was perfect for a snug day as it was quite chilly finally! As an added bonus I’ll leave you with a picture of my foundations! It is May the Month of Lingerie so follow my on Instagram for daily lingerie pictures for this month. I’ll try to do a big compilation post at the end of the month too!

Neko Atsume Cape Review

This year for Christmas I received a Neko Atsume cape! I am a huge fan of this mobile game as it’s so cute and non-stressful. My significant other also bought me a plushie of the Tubbs character. Although it’s summer there have been a couple of days where I’ve needed a little warmth so I decided to try out my new cape!

This is not ethically made clothing, I am reviewing this because it’s something people might be interested in. It was purchased for me last year as a gift.

1

With the cape I am wearing a Rock Steady t-shirt, skirt made by me and some What Katie Did Red/Champagne Seamed Stockings. I am a huge fan of short skirts and opaque stockings in winter.

Also excuse the lighting, for some reason it got super bright when I went to take photos.

3

The main fabric is a black medium-weight felt like fleece and the lining and contrast is a basic flannel shirting in black/red gingham. The garment is 100% polyester. It’s still pretty soft just not super cuddly. It has a decent amount of thickness so you don’t get the wind coming through the fabric.

4

This cape is available in both a black and white design, this one is based on the cat Pepper from Neko Atsume and the white is based on Mack.

I really like the hood detail with the face and cute little ears! Both the face and cat pocket are embroidered on so there’s no worry about it fading in the wash. The hood is also a nice large size, it doesn’t pull on your hair and gives a nice shape.

As well as the three front buttons it features one on each side of them hem to make it more like sleeves. I love the look this gives and it’s really handy so it doesn’t just billow around. This cape doesn’t give a full range of movement as it isn’t a full circle cut but this with the buttons makes it great for windier places.

The back of the cape also features an appliqued tail in the lining fabric, It’s nice as it gives the cape some interest from the back if you have the hood up. Also the length of the cape means the tail is perfectly placed.

9

I really like that this cape has so many wear-ability options. You can bundle yourself up with all buttons done up, or have it open with only the top button (this is great as it gives you all the movement) and also just have the front buttons done up.

10

The front pocket is functional and I think it would be a great size and placement for an i-Pod. I walk a lot in town as I live in a central suburb and don’t own a car so I find myself walking for long stretches just listening to music. This would be super handy as I find it really annoying having to find and open up my bag just to change songs especially as I have a rubbery i-Pod case so it sticks to everything.

2

This cape is super easy to find on Ebay if you just search ‘Neko Atsume Cape’. I’m not sure exactly which seller mine is from but the label is ‘Manchy’ and they are probably all made by the same factory anyway.

I like this and I think I’ll definitely get a lot of wear out of it in the cooler months.It’s not an expensive item and isn’t made ethically thus it has a few loose threads and the fabric isn’t amazing quality. This can definitely work with a lot of styles too, I can definitely see it with a Lolita or Goth look but with a tartan skirt this would be a perfect way to ‘cutesy’ up a vintagey outfit.

Thanks for reading!
