This may not be the most authentic representation of the everyday me, but whatever, it’s just something I like doing.. dress up and have some fun taking pictures:p

Pastel Goth style, pastel pink wig, black studded corset

So yep this look must’ve been somewhat pastel goth inspired, I like the style when it’s not too over the top

Jeffrey Campbell Scully platforms, they seem to be selling out quickly, so I thought there’s no point in waiting till they go on sale.
Obviously not feeling very special about myself, as every blogger on the block has a pair, but I love them so much I don’t care.
It would be nice to have a back version too, but they’re so expensive here I’ll probably have to pass.

Jeffrey Campbell Scully Review

Jeffrey Campbell White Scully in boxj

These platforms are just mindblowingly awesome, so they were an absolute must have for me, despite being a little too popular lately.

Jeffrey Campbell Scully Platforms Jeffrey Campbell Scully heels

The color is snow white, not off white or ivory. One thing that bugs me is that sole rubber color is a little darker than the rest of the shoe.
They also come in all black and black with white sole versions:
scullyblack-black-white-version

Heels and sole seem rather scratch and dent prone, obviously the fact that they’re white doesn’t help.. It’s the case where numerous scratches and dirt will not add much charm to the shoe..

Comfortable or not, that’s a subjective matter. Even though they have a 2″ platform, you still end up with 4″ inch heels to walk on. One thing that helps is that the heel is very wide, keeps you very steady on the ground

I got them in US 7.5. Nasty Gal has a weird size conversion chart. According to it 7.5 translates to 38, but pretty much everywhere else it’s 37.5.. so as for 37.5 they’re true to size, might be a lil tight for 38

They are on the heavy side, each shoe weighs a bit over 700gr. The velcro strap can be removed, but given their weight, it does actually help them stay on

Supposedly they are a ‘knockoff’ of Stella McCartney ‘Kristy’ platforms.

I think Jeffrey Cambpell took a great idea and turned it into something even better. Of course the $800 ones will be less ‘rough around the edges’, but when it comes to the style itself, I think JC wins
In the meanwhile there are a few knockoffs of Scully out there:

riverislandplatform
River Island, £60 (sold out)
truffle1
Truffle, £50 (sold out)

To sum it up:

Cons:
+ Despite the thick platform, they are still high 4″ inch heels
+ Heels and soles aren’t very damage resistant
+ Mismatching color of rubber sole
+ A little heavy
+ Too mainstream:p

Pros:
+ Chunky heel, so not shaky at all
+ True to size (imo)
+ Killer look

Heel Height: 6″ (15cm)
Platform height: 2″ (5cm)

Where to buy:

in US: SoleStruck, NastyGal, Jeffrey Campbell
In UK: most probably sold out in UK stores, so you can try looking on ebay. Jeffrey Campbell shoes are available at Office.co.uk or Sarenza.co.uk, so you can keep an eye on these in case if they come back in stock.

Pretty in Pastel

All saints denin shirt, pink tutu skirt, studded Mia bag
It turned out to be pretty hard to find the right pieces to go with a tutu skirt, most of the options I tried just made it look too grotesque or over the top (just no way right). So I went with a very casual top and pastel color scheme.
denim shirt, new look top, pink tulle skirt
mia bag, pink tutu skirt, miss selfridge heels
denim shirt, mia bag
Spike covered white Mia bag
This stud covered Mia bag is just too adorable. I usually don’t expect too much from purses under $100 (I bought this one for £51 on yoox), so I actually was pleasantly surprised when I got it.. It doesn’t really have a cheap vibe about it, and solid hardware also helps alot..
Ivory Studded Mia Bag
Juicy Couture Rhinestone chain bracelet
Juicy rocks:)
juicycouture-bracelet-jamie-karma
I got this Karma bracelet without really knowing that they were a fad. I just thought it’s just what it was randomly called, but actually there is some meaning behind them.
The disk/circle is supposed represent the idea of things you do eventually coming back to you and it is meant to be a reminder to keep your thoughts positive..or something?
Not so sure what is so crucial about it being a karma bracelet and not karma coffee mug or karma phone case or desktop screensaver, but anyways I got mine just because I liked the look of it.

Guess you can’t expect much from shoes under $100 either:p

Sleep When I’m Dead

Was shooting this when it was getting dark on a cloudy day, so most of it turned out like that.. face in focus, body isn’t or vice versa, as I had to shoot with the apeture wide open..
