PAINTING BODYSUIT - PRIMARK, WHITE MAXI SKIRT - WHOLESALE-DRESS, BLACK CARDIGAN - C/O SUGARLIPS, BLACK BELT - C/O OASAP, GOLD CROSS NECKLACE - PRIMARK, MUSICAL NOTE EARRINGS - PRIMARK, BLACK 'PETE DOHERTY' HAT - C/O OASAP, CREEPERS - T.U.K
My college wardrobe is very limited, so I always have to think of new ways to make garments work. This long black cardigan wasn't really working with the maxi skirt, so I tucked the bottom part of it into the belt and created a pretty nice effect (which I forgot to take a picture of -_-). All the black and white makes the painting really stand out, and the creepers and the gold add an edge to it.
T.U.K creepers were one of the best purchase decisions I've made. The quality is really good, they look amazing, can be combined with literally anything, and are super-comfortable. I've wanted them for years and finally bought them during this year's after-Christmas sale. When they arrived, they were a size bigger than my feet, but I sent them back, and got a pair in my size within a week.
A little footnote... Of course the title of this article isn't meant to be anti-art, as those who know me at least a little bit have probably figured. It is a quote from my personal bible...
I still remember sitting in a park reading this book for the first time and being completely striken by its words.
'We can forgive a man for making a useful thing as long as he does not admire it.
The only excuse for making a useless thing is that one admires it intensely.
All art is quite useless.'
Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray
