Recently purchased- Second hand shopping

Hi!

I got lucky at the second hand today.

I’ve already put my hands on most of these items and started to modify them into shape and with bows and pearls.

These are today’s clothing second hand finds that where on sale. Also bought these three crowns that I’ve already started to make into headpieces that you clip on your head and then tie ribbon under the chin. I fell in love with the idea that I’m making into reality when I first saw them sitting there on a table. They costed me less then 1$

CollageMaker_20170426_191102820I hope I can inspire other likeminded people to go out and shop in second hand shops and modify the items you get. This is almost always how I evolve in my creativity and recycling is great!

 

Love,

Hi! Welcome back. Thought I would share my most recent clothing finds. The purpose of these kind of posts is to inspire others to think outside the box when it comes to shopping. Practically all of my clothing comes from shopping at second hand shops and sales for real cheap, so I buy alot!

Recently purchased- Second hand shopping 

Hi! Today I went second hand shopping with my mother and grandfather. ♡

We went to one of my favorite second hand places out in the middle of the forest, but they’re not open all year round so I better visit as much as I can when they’re open in the summer. They made an exception for easter.


Look at that cute little baroque mirror!

 

I made two findings, one super cute little jacket for 20 sek (about 2,41 USD if I translated it correctly) and a gardening book for 10 sek! (about 1,21 USD) so in total I spent 30 sek or 3,62 USD and I am so happy with my findings! ♥

 

Thinking about adding some ruffles and/or lace and box pleated trim to it. Hmm.. I think that’d be very cute.

Recently purchased- Bodyline shopping

Hello again. I’m very active on my blog today aren’t I?

Woah, I totally wasn’t planning on buying dresses or anything this month but when I saw how Bodyline had marked down their prices I just couldn’t let this opportunity to get my hands on some new lolita items slip. So this month I will prioritize my lolita fashion intrest. For those of you who do not know much about lolita, let me give you the basics. It’s a street fashion from japan inspired by rococo (among other things). Lolita fashion is known for It’s poofy sillouette with frills and bows and lace. Lolita fashion, which I am referring to has nothing to do with Vladimir Nabokov’s book lolita.

So you never really know when a sale on Bodyline is over so I bought all my things at once. I know Bodyline is not seen as great as ”the real” lolita brands in the lolita world in neither quality or reputation. I do not feel like having a brand tag on my clothing is something that is important for me. I’m thinking of making a whole review on Bodyline with tips and tricks here on my blog someday so I’ll get more into my opinion on Bodyline and brand clothing rant thing then later on. Anyways, here is what I bought online:

A pink cardigan/bolero, a pink and white striped jumperskirt, a black highwaisted skirt, a black and white jumperskirt and below the last jsk, a black dress (I couldn’t find a larger picture in good quality of the dress in the black colourway so there is a picture of the black and white colourway.)

I’m more than pleased with what I got my hands on. I already got some coordinates (outifts) planned in my head for some of these. Good night! ♥

Recently purchased- Monster high dolls!

Hello my lovelies..

One thing about me that most people don’t know is that I LOVE dolls. I played with dolls as a little girl, and loved them. Now being a teen I still love dolls, but now I collect them.

I absoluteley adore The Monster high dolls, if they would have existed when I was I child I would so rather have played with them instead of Bratz! I used to modify my nearly 60 Bratz dolls into weird goth looking creatures of The night. xD

These are the dolls that I allready got:

Draculaura (Daguther of Count Dracula)

Image

Rochelle (Daguther of The stonemonsters)

Image

Frankie Stein (Daguther of Frankenstein)

(But I’m repainting this Frankie doll into one of my own characters..)

Image

Elissabat (Daguther of a vampire)

Image

Operetta (Daguther of The phantom of The opera)

And now let us take a look at The dolls I’m currently waiting for to arrive:

Image

Lagoona Blue (Daguther of The sea monster)

Image

Catrine DeMew (Daguther of The werecat)

Image

Raven Queen (Daguther of The evil Queen)

(And as you can see, The last one is a Ever after High doll. :3)

I love these dolls so much and they look great in my two rooms as pretty decor! :3 ❤

Recently purchased – New jewlery!

Good morning! As I am writing this post I’m in the middle of  eating breakfast and drinking chai tea. Mmh yummy!

I thought I’d do a little post about my recently purchased jewlery from the north European accessories and jewlery company Glitter.

I wasn’t really going to buy any jewlery when I was out shopping ( I was shopping in another town of course. My town doesn’t have any good stores at all.)  but as I walked by Glitter, I thought I’d just check it out just for fun. To my surprise they had a really cool sale where you could pick 5 items for 5,75€! 

And being the sale pirate I am, I had to buy some 😉

glitter jewlery

2 headpieces (only bought two incase I wanted to give away one to a friend of mine) two hairbows, one grey chained necklace with a black pearl at the bottom and a black and transparent pearl necklace.

Recently purchased – H&M big sale shopping

Hello darlings! Todays update is a pretty big post. Lovely Lovely LOVELY autumn is just around the corner with all sorts of exciting things, oh the atmophsefere of autumn! Halloween and all It’s wonder, beautiful light from lit candles, movie watching, UCBC- under cosy blanket cuddling, all saints day here in Sweden, my birthday etc etc. ( I love autumn! I will post more about that later on) But this fall is even more extra exciting for me, I’m entering high school and in a completely diffrent town (FINALLY! It’s a big change<3)  and getting myself pierced. It’s going to be an amazing time for me.  New people, new places, new school, a new everyday life, new everything! (+ ALL OF THAT AUTUMN WONDER!!)

With all of that out of the way,  I wanted to talk about a shopping spree I very recently went on to H&M that turned out AMAZING. I decided to write this post and show off my new stuff because I wanted to show you guys that you can find amazing stuff at just ordinary clothing stores. I want to encourage everybody with alternative styles to try out ordinary stores! It’s often a lot more cheaper than in alternative stores. If the piece just isn’t quite right or doesn’t feel like it’s ready to be worn yet you can modify your findings!  If you are a DIY person like myself  you can easily modify garments of clothing into something more beautiful or cool. This spree includes both clothing at sale and clothing at ordinary prices. I think it’s great because you get the chance to be so creative with the things you find at bargain prices! This is all about your cute eyes and your brain and how good you are at visualizing  random pieces of clothing combined with other pieces that hopefully makes them beautiful to you. ”But help, I feel so stressed out while I’m in the store!” I often feel like this myself so I have tried out these small tricks that almost always work. I used all of these tips while shopping for this H&M shopping spree: + Get there early. Where I shop people seem to want to shop later than I usally do. Less people. Less feeling of stress!   + Listen to Music. Listen to music while shopping is great! Listen to your favourite songs or an album by an artist which you feel calmed down when listening to. + Eat a good meal and drink lots of water before you go off like a pirate at the sales. + Go to bed earlier the day before. More sleep gives you time to reload your batteries. + Don’t stress. Take store by store or section by section within a store on sereval days instead of just one. Less time pressure! ~~~~~~~~~~~~        ~~~~~~~~~~~~        ~~~~~~~~~~~~        ~~~~~~~~~~~~      ~~~~~~~~~~~~        ~~~~~~~~~~~~        ~~~~~~~~~~~~ So let’s get started with my pirate findings. ARRGHH!
