Jade Rose Pastel Trail

Well, I promised.

(Though it took a while.)

One of the key ways I know what I want something to look like, is when I'm shopping and I see an item of clothing that is perfect except for ONE, THING. Maybe two things. Knowing how I want to change it urges me to create my own version, but I often forget to come straight home and design it before I forget.

Dress up games are also great for kicking my imagination into gear, especially games that allow many variations and colour palette changes to the items.

Pink Spotting: 'Japanese Wife' Blog

From the Japanese Wife blog post, featuring pictures of Lolita style.

Pink Kimono

Found a new site! It's called Wedding Inspirasi.

This isn't quite what I'd call a 'trail'  because I was just on one site and didn't search the whole damn world-wide-web to find what I was looking for, like when I was looking for a summer dress on eBay.

So guess it's just a 'thing'.

The post was displaying a range of wedding kimonos from a Japanese site called Scena D'uno. It's quite an old post, actually (2010), but who cares.

Here we go.

What Do You Think Of These Converses?

Not strictly pink, I know, I know.

But aren't they gorge?

PINK'd - Hayley Williams

Anyone who has a faint idea of Paramore, Hayley Williams, and her hairstyles over the last half-a-decade or so, knows that every so often she dyes it a different shade of red or ginger, resulting in some pretty cool and interesting styles. More recently, and this is most evident in the Still Into You video, she has... wait for it...

Summer Dresses Trail

None of the pics below below to me. That said, enjoy!


As you may have guessed, I'm a bit of an eBay addict.

Summer is a'comin again and I would quite like a new dress so yep, I've been bargain hunting on eBay. Here's the favourites I narrowed down the thirty or so down to.

This dress is a fuschia pink bird print dress by Olivia Ruben (Dorothy Perkins), and it is gorgeous. Here's the eBay listing. The model picture doesn't even do the dress justice, so here's one pic from the listing too;

This one (below) I plan to get. The blends of soft blues and pinks are so nice, the crossed back finishes it off nicely. Love the tiered hems. Here's the listing.

The dress below I absolutely adore, but the sizing may possibly be to small for me. What a damn shame. In all honestly  I prefer the light pink to the bright pink. It's summer, it's gonna be hot, and I don't need so much of a bold colour glaring me in the face. Whereas the light pink can easily be matched with something bright, like a sunhat. Or something. Heh. (Find it here on eBay.)

The dress (below) is super pretty, although I have decided not to buy. I love the peacock-like patterns and subtle pinks among other pastel colours and greys. I find it interesting that the model wears yellow heels. I would have personally chosen white - but seeing this picture makes me prefer the yellow because it brings out the 'hidden' colours at the bottom of the dress. Coolio. (Here on eBay.)

This dress is striking in the way the colours are placed on the dress; dark at the waist and hem, light across the skirt, straps and bust. I really like that effect. I prefer the pink, light blue and green dress (left) to the dark blue and pink one just because - this sounds kinda weird - it has more potential. In terms of styling it with accessories. You know. (Here on eBay)

Isn't it so CUTE? Oh man! (below) I don't actually want one, it would look terrible on me, but it's a gorgeous dress. Yeah, that's it really. (Here on eBay)

I had a little fit over the pink version of this dress because it is amazingly cute and reminds me why I often shop for Korean and Chinese clothes instead of European, although it really doesn't make a difference because there will always be incredible and awful fashion items out there no matter where you shop. (inhale) Again, I couldn't wear it (except maybe as some sort of nightdress, ha,) but I love looking at it. (Here on eBay)

And that, friends and Pink-lovers, concludes my Pink Dresses vomit-post today. Catch you later - I have many more pink things to share with you.

Baseball Caps Trail

Hi kiddies. Been a while.

While hunting for a summer dress on ebay, I came across THEEEESEE.

They're being sold by boacap on ebay, possibly by others too, and the question of whether or not to buy is killin' me.
