Wednesday


This Wednesday proved out to be a pretty good one! Lots of plans and secret crafts and some roller derby goodness to sweeten (and sweaten) the last hours of the day. Here's what I wore today (yet again the shoes were different for outside walks, damn you Finland). I enjoyed this outfit surprisingly much, it's girly feel was something I'm not quite used to, and also because it reminded me of one of my all-time favourite girls, one that I can always relate to. Not too hard to guess who, but you can find the answer by scrolling to the end of this page. ;)



The dress is a combination of a thrifted collar and a black dress I got with a H&M gift card. My fingers have been buzzing to create this project for months! I just couldn't find the suitable dress before. The sweet round peter pan collars weren't my cup of tea as much as these sharp ones. The pointy collar makes the outfit feel a tad more mischievous, but the spiked shoes might have something to do with that as well. I fished them from eBay a while ago, somehow Jeffrey Campbell shoes usually remind me of dinosaurs! These are my first ones and I might name them after stegosauruses because of those spikes. :> Sadly they're a tiny bit too large for me so I'll probably have to let them go and try to hunt down smaller ones.

And I just had to add these gifs here! (All found from tumblr.)


And the best one!
"Would you like to buy some Girl Scout cookies?":


Hehee, I love it! 
I think I might watch some Addams Family with a cup of steaming tea now, 
hope you have a great night!

  1. My entire closet has been slowly filling up with Pan collars the past year. I LOVE the one you made, if you ever list one like it for sale anywhere, definitely give a shout!

    1. And I've been eyeing them for well over a year now, I've just thought that they might be too sweet for my taste. But finally I gave it a go and I really like this style!

      I'm actually going through all my possessions right now, there's a HUGE pile of unnecessary clothing and shoes flying away from my closet. Not this dress though. ;)

    1. Thank you! Did you buy the first one or the Family Values? I've been searching all over the internet to get the first film on DVD, without any success. I've only got the film on an ancient VHS video tape, I've watched it so many times that some parts are starting to melt. :-D

  7. Hello there beautiful!
    I'm kinda curious, what shoes do you actually wear outside?

    1. Hello! I have to wear sturdier ones, I would freeze and probably slip in heels like these. :D So usually I wear high heeled boots (with winter soles) and wedge ankle boots. I'm still searching for the perfect winter combat boots!

  10. I simply adore your style!
    I love all the spikes going on. I haven't worn spikes for a few years The always get damaged because the weather is so humid were I live. :(
    You could get away with dressing in Wednesday Addams inspired garb all year long. It looks so cute ♥

    1. Oh, thank you! ^^
      Weather conditions are nasty when they prevent wearing certain garments, in this country the problem seems to be the long winter. Sure it has it's own bright sides, but I'm longing to wear all my high heels again!

  15. Älä vielä luovu kengistäsi. Minä olen pelastanut monta aavistuksen liian isoa paria joutumasta kirpputori kasaan yksinkertaisesti ostamalla kunnon pohjalliset. Ne tuovat kenkiin juuri sopivasti lisätäytettä ja tadah! kengät pysyvät menossa mukana.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Kiitos vinkistä, mutta taidan kuitenkin luopua kun kokeilin jo pohjalliskikkaa eikä se tuntunut auttavan tarpeeksi. Pitänee kokeilla jotain muuta pohjallista vielä, ehkä jotain kantapääpalaa vaikkei ne ole mulla yleensä toimineet. Onneksi aina on vaihtoehtona myydä ja ostaa tilalle pienemmät. :)

  17. A great outfit as always, the pointy Pan collar looks more grown up than the rounded ones and yes, slightly mischievous : )

    Loving the Wednesday gif images!

  21. Sulle kyllä tuntuu käyvän asu kuin asu. Tuollaista mekkoa olen itsekin katellut, mutta pelkään näyttäväni pikkutytöltä se päälläni.

    Niin ja ihania Addams Family - gifejä!

    1. Kiitos paljon! Mulla oli ennen ihan sama pelko, ajattelin näiden peter pan-kaulusten olevan aivan liian söpöjä tyyliini. Terävämpi malli tuntuu istuvan hyvinkin, varsinkin kun yhdistelee jotenkin jännästi. :)

  25. O gosh, Mothmouth, you are so pretty!
    You inspire me and at the same time make me feel bad for sitting at home all day, behind my screen, snacking and weaking my bathrobe (I did put make-up on to make myself feel a bit better!). What do you do on such days, when youre just home, bored and not feeling well?

    1. Oh, thanks so much dearie! On such days I always try to do something that will cheer me up. There's a ton of options for such days, like reading, playing on PS3, drawing, taking pictures or visiting flea markets for treasures. I'm never bored, that's an honest truth, because there's always so many nice things to do and create!

      And sometimes I just sit behind my screen and snack all day, hehe.

    1. Nope, I'm not on Tumblr, but sometimes I randomly search pretty pictures there.

      And thank you! It's easy to find super cheap shirts with collars like these from recycling centers and flea markets, you only have to cut it off and attach it to the dress. :)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Kiitoksia! :) Nuo on UK 5 kokoa, eli suomalaisittain 38. Campbellin kengät on yleensä aika pientä mitoitusta (ainakin kaikki muut mitä oon sovittanut) mutta nämä oli jostain syystä poikkeus. Ovat ihan rehellisesti kokoa 38, ehkä vähän sen ylikin. Mulla on tosissaan tuo jalka 37-37,5 hujakoilla niin hieman lonksuvilta tuntuvat.
