All That Glitters Isn't Gold

gentleman's hat ... uncle's
jumper ... charity shop
creepers ... New Look

This little shoot ended up with me having some pretty dead and creepy expressions... my apologies if I scare you ! 


This outfit is actually one of my recent go-to's. The jumper is so easy to throw on, along with some tights and any shoes my little heart desires. Skull flats, boots, heels, or in this case, my creepers. I'd been wanting creepers for ages, and I was just about to buy a fifty dollar pair on Urban Outfitters, but on my most recent trip to the United Kingdom I found them in New Look, and on sale as well ! I was beyond thrilled and I scooped them up immediately. Happy camper indeed :) That hat has become quite an outfit staple of mine. So simple to throw on, and so classy with any outfit. Thank you Uncle Thomas; rest in peace.


On a side note, I'm not sure if anyone knows this, but I have been battling acne for years. And by years, I mean it started arond eighth grade, and I'm nineteen and a freshman in college right now. You can only imagine the frustration. I have of course mastered basically concealing it completely, but as you can see in some of the above photos, it's there. I've had a dermatologist since sophomore year of high school, and even then I only saw my face get worse. Why do I tell you all this ? Because I am cautiously happy to say that at the moment, my face is actually improving. The spots are fading, the actual blemishes are beginning to slow in frequency. Basically, I my face might actually be getting better ? Fingers crossed, toes crossed, every body part that can cross crossed. So, those that have skin problems and feel icky and like it will never go away, trust me, I've been there, I am still there, and it will get better. Stick to your regiments, and drink as much water as possible. It truly does help. 


Stay classy guys and gals.
