r e c e n t ♡ c o o r d s

"What's the name of your fashion style?" 

What do you think? Should I? 
I probably shouldn't. 

Just a month ago I was obsessed with lace and  more elegant stuff, now I have rediscovered my love for knitted hats, padlocks and pins, more street-y things in black and white. I have also started dipping my face in glitter. And I love it. I have to tell you, I really didn't see this one coming. "Pink" and "glitter" are words I'm not too familiar with fashion wise, I'm too "svart och svår" for cute stuff. That's Swedish for "dark and twisted", but it sounds so much better in Swedish.

"Svart och svår, nitton år."

Maybe it's the warmer weather. All swedes are completely different season to season, it's like the entire country is replaced by new, either fresh or depressed souls four times a year - as you maybe already know if you have read my rants about how terrible the swedish winters are. I'm fresh now, I guess. How lovely. 

My recent obsessions resulted in these simple coords, anyhow! 

They look a little boring, I agree, and I apologize for that. I'm currently suffering through the worst cold - or whatever it is, I've been sick for more than a week now, might be the flu - I have had in years, so dressing up and leaving the house turned out to be a major challenge. Despite the simplicity I kind of liked them, though, so I'm at least giving myself an A for effort. 

The leather skirt ( ← hello I am a link ) I'm wearing in the first picture is from Sheinside, as well as the striped long-sleeved top I'm wearing in the second picture.

I'm going to share what set this ball rolling in my next post, this week, but I want to keep this and that separate, so that I can actually spit out a shorter post for once in my life. Also because it will be more neat that way, and it will make my perfectionist brain happy. 

So, to end this post, I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope you're all feeling a lot better than I am! 

This week I've fallen off a stone wall and faceplanted the concrete, seen Maleficent, been to a rather wild party, power walked more than I should have and slept way too little. Kids, do not repeat my mistakes. Okay, Maleficent was so worth it, one of the best movies I have ever seen, and the party was worth it too, but . . . Let's just say I'm more dead than alive and a lot sicker than I was before I decided to be stupid. 

Please be smarter than me, okay.
Lots of kisses to y'all!  

See ya soon! ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ

  1. I feel like these twists in your style is what happens to all of us regulary. And it actually kind of... relieved me to see that I'm actually not the only one who goes through that because I usually feel kind of confused and yea.
    I hope you'll feel better soon!
    I've been home since last Wednesday and I don't even know yet what exactly is going on but I feel sick and shitty and therefore didn't dress up for what feels like ages.
    I have to admit that seeing your outfits and reading your words actually consoled me in a weird but good way.
    Thanks for that and I look forward to read more again soon. ♡

    1. You're absolutely right! It's nothing I'm worried about though, and you shouldn't either! What's wrong with going with your gut? Change can be fun. ( ^ ^ )

      I hope you're feeling better soon as well! And thank you so much for this sweet comment. ♡

  2. Iro, you look awesome as always!!! I hate you (with love) you're so pretty and sexy as fuck!! When I see your last pic (and all your pics, i admit it) i fall in love with you over and over *W*!
    I hope you feel better in some days sweetie ♥♥


    1. Oh my god I've literally only been called sexy like 5 times in my life, HAHA! Thank you. ♡ ♡

  3. Love your outfit <3

  4. As always I love your cords! Sometimes simple and clean feels better than clustetfuck. Although I lean to the later, I think being sick is the perfect explanation for simple and clean. I do have two questions though if you don't mind. First, how do you get the glitter to stay on your face, or does it shed throughout the day? Second, what lenses are you wearing in these photos? I have similar eye coloring to yours, and I struggle finding lenses that blend well. ( So if you have any suggestions~~ c; )

  5. svart och svår Means "black & hard". Lol lol *dies* I think you mean to say " Mörk och vriden ". You're welcome

    1. Being swedish and all, I know what the direct translation is. It's a saying. No one has ever said "mörk och vriden", which would be the direct translation of "dark and twisted". "Svart och svår" is therefore the swedish counterpart of "dark and twisted".

      Also, "svår" does not translate to "hard". It can mean "difficult" or "rough".

      Don't correct me unless you know what you're talking about.

    2. haha black and hard fick mig att tänka på nåt helt annat xD
      Tänkte bara fråga vad det är för linser du använder? Har du köpt dom från pinkyparadise?
      Och du är verkligen supersöt, amazing hår =)

  6. OMG, I love your style. Could you added more you stylizations? And..maybe will make some tutorial with you amke up with glitter brush? : D

    PS: Do you know Yeah Yeah Yeahs?

    1. I don't have a good webcam at the moment, so I'm not sure if I'll be able to record video tutorials... but picture tutorials maybe? Thank you so much!

      I don't know Yeah Yeah Yeahs, unfortunately!
