Casual Wednesday

This is my idea of a casual (or lazy, if you will) outfit; a basic color palette and boxy clothes.

I customized this trench with a pair of slightly spooky eyes (my second such trench) and I like the way it feels more unique this way. I really enjoy customizing my wardrobe, but I think for me it is a lot about little details. I often replace the laces in my shoes with ribbons or hem a dress to a shorter length I prefer. Not all these touches glare out at you the way the paint pen eyes do, but they're there nonetheless making mass-produced items more personal.

  3. So pretty! I love your self-mixed nail polish. I think I have said this before but you should do a tutorial of how you self-mix. On nail or in bottle?

    I love your little customizations. :o)

    What a beautiful bird! Are they common where you are?

  7. I really like this outfit. That scarf reminds me Miu Miu. The whole naked body thing going on.

    Ps. What do you use to draw on your trench coat. I really like the idea of customizing clothes like that, and I was just wondering what you use.

  23. The other night I saw a girl wearing a dress I have from F21. It made me not want to wear that dress again (silly, i know) but I like what you said about personalizing mass produced items. I think I'll try to do something like that to the dress. Thanks for the inspiration.

  46. nothing casual about that ring

  47. Awesome outfit, so many great, small details! Loved the eyes you did on the last trench coat... I would certainly have bought it off your "shop my closet" site if it were my size! The eyes on this one are a little more "polished" though, I really like what you did with the white "highlights" in the eyes... all stylized/swirly.
