Lazy girls guide to dressing, weather is cloudy, gloomy, rainy, murky, you feel me? you have that blegh mood?

For days like this I like long layers and I like to play up the reflections of the rain.. somehow when it rains I always wear something in black lacquer, sequined or soft defusing whites…

I don’t mind the rain.. it are the umbrellas in New York, watch, dive and duck not to get your eyes poked out in freakin midtown.

I wear a long gray dress from the H&M over a menswear AA tee, biker boots.. the only thing i did was slather on shiny excessories and a sequined shrug.. 5 min, done, didn’t even brush my hair, just tucked it up..

**** DIY UPDATE ****
The Stuff Sale (who gave me the diy shredded gray tee I was wearing a few posts ago) has made a tutorial on an easy way to shred the tee and with that save some time doing it.

**** UPDATE ****
Opened my Etsy shop, for now DIY Embellished tights for sale and working on more, you can make requests too.

    hahahaha! i was ducking umbrellas myself today. luckily i’m a bit taller so it worked out well. so…THIS is what you’ve been up to when not on chictopia. i’m very very very impressed! beautiful blog! keep at it girlie!
    p.s. we still have yet to meet to take photos, lol. i love the long layers also, but in the rain, it tends to get my floor length dresses and skirts soaked. yucky.

    I’m way too short for long dresses, seriously I’ve try it no good.

    Thanks, I’ve been trying so hard to gather good outfits. I need more clothes, mostly I’ve been in jeans and crappy tees.

    ps. I’ll take pictures of our garden, we still need to plant our veggies but we don’t have time this weekend.

    Ik heb (nog) geen chictopia of lookbook, had wel ooit een chictopia account aangemaakt maar ik snapte niks van het uploaden hahah! Ben echt de allerslechtste met dat soort dingen.
    Misschien moet ik er toch maar eens aan beginnen! Heb jij allebei of alleen chictopia?
