gifts given

(revlon siren lipstick, headband c/o galine, double collar blouse c/o sway chic, vintage skort, vintage knee socks, vintage platforms)

i must have done something right in a past life because i returned home from new york to find TWO packages waiting for me.  the first was from my new friends at sway chic! i really lucked out because i fell in love with this blouse at first sight but it was sold out. i was only sad for about 3 seconds though because their site is full of goodies and i had no problem finding something else that caught my eye.  it turned out that the something else i picked was already on sale and i was asked to go back and take another look.  by this time the double collar blouse was back in stock and i knew it was fated to be mine!  i decided on a medium because i like a loose fit on a sheer piece to better showcase my undergarments but perhaps you are not as much of an exhibitionist as me and in that case i would try for a smaller size.  here's where you can find sway chic elsewhere on the internets: facebook, twitter, tumblr, instagram, and their blog.  

the second present was handmade by a fellow internet gal and megababe that you probably already know from her beautifully curated tumblr la petite souris.  i know it's just the internet but i like to think that we've become rather close thanks to instagram and i'm very proud to have her as a girlcrush and a friend.  i'm slowly but surely convincing her to abandon the cold in canada and come down south for a visit or for forever!

Is it wrong to say you remind me of a sexy pony?

Galine said...

I do feel sort of in awe some times the way life works out. It makes me laugh to think I used to read your blog but never commented because I was just too shy us now talking often! And even if it's just the internet (For now!) some of my closest friends are those I met online! It's a special place for me in the sense that I've been lucky to meet & become friends with some girls who I truly adore (Such as yourself!) and it's nice to actually compliment a girl and root for her, instead of put her down and compete.

I am truly thrilled that you love the headband so much as I was so nervous that maybe you wouldn't, and I must say it looks absolutely dreamy on you! You are such a babe, inside and out, and I hope to only become closer to you until the one day over the rainbow we meet!!! I am already so over the cold winter months Canada has to offer, a trip to your area would be such a treat ^^

Lots of love and I adoooore the photos / everything about your entire outfit / you!!!! Heart eyes I tell you, your beauty blows me away!!!!

Also - REALLY WISH MY HAIR WAS AS LONG AS YOURS!!! *Sigh* I am still growing out layers but now it's all split ends and a tad messy but I hate getting a trim because I know it'll end up being so short and I'll have to grow it out all over again, boo :( How often do you cut your hair?

Lots of love to you beauty!!! <3
