When I received this bundle of joy in my mail from the lovely kids over at Robot Ninjas, my heart sort of did a little somersault, landed wrong and passed out. It moves in the most amazing way. Wearing it while it's windy is especially satisfying 'cause it makes me feel like I wield supernatural powers and/or I can yell 'Accio Broomstick' and fly away from the demands of paying attention in lectures, missing wallets and attempts at crawling out of beds that are too warm and too soft (what's new?)
My dad literally thinks that I am missing half a skirt. He asked me how I tore my skirt and I said, "a homeless person tore half of it off with his teeth because I didn't have any cigarettes to give him when he asked." No, not really. But he did think the assymetrical hem was a result of my lack of co-ordination and grace (everytime I fall over and scar my already bruised and screwed up knees, he asks me how I'm going to manage to find a husband).
I look sickly pale in these photos, but rest assured, I don't look like I'm dying ALL the time, at the most - only mildly nauseous.

Oh, and I guess it's not really the rapture today because I didn't wake up and find my entire family dead. I was discussing last night with my friend what would be the most realistic way I'd spend my day if today really was the rapture, and I came to the conclusion that I'd probably just lie in bed all day and cry while regretting 18 years of my life not paying attention in church and being an all-round bad Christian.
My 18th birthday is coming up in little over a week (1st June/first day of Winter in Australia) and trying to find a nice birthday dress is proving incredibly difficult. If you have any nice online shops to recommend besides the obvious (ASOS, Topshop, Nasty Gal, Forever21, UO, Lipsy, Boohoo, Modcloth, FredFlare, Ssense, PIXIEMARKET etc), please speak up. Next outfit post featuring an upcoming t-shirt designer yay yay hurray :-) Hope you've all been well. x
