Today’s Outfit & Makeup 16-07 (II)

Hey there, Internet!

There are not a lot of days that I consider being too warm for a jacket of some kind, but that day definitely was. So the DIY shirt from last post got its first se already because it is one of the thinnest fabrics and loose fit which both are perfect for this hot weather. Still, sunblock on, fan was added to the bag and off to the city, spent that entire day off outside, catching Pokémon!

Would Sunblock and Shadow from whatever we could find count as accessories?

Dear ladies, anyone else a bit jealous that men can simply throw away their tops without anybody looking strange and we have to think of other solutions? Have a nice evening!


DIY: Bleach me Cobweb!

Hey there, Internet!

I am guilty. After a trip to the city for some Pokémon Go adventures I was browsing some second hand stores without finding anything at all and then ended up in Primark – needed a new pair of pants for work anyways. Next time I will head, trousers wise, to H&M again though because obviously my calves are too thick compared to my booty for Primark trousers, which I never thought would be possible because usually my booty is the reason why I have to size up. Anyways, ended with a pair of new pants (with more space around my booty than I ever will need, not even if I would need to wear diapers) and a shirt from their sale, biggest size, really thin black fabric. Perfect victim for a DIY project that I did so often back in my baby bat days when I was not able to afford any fancy clothing. There was not a lot available back then anyways except maybe lip service.

Instead what my friends and I did, probably like a lot of you, was using bleach, from the cleaning sections or leftovers from your latest hair adventure. Eventually I have a lot of whitening powder left because I currently use hairdye that requires no pre-bleaching. So the bleaching powder & creme oxid was my choice this time! Instead of a paintbrush I used the pointy end of a back-combing-comb. Since I wanted to do some spiderweb print and those I prefer to look irregular.

Workplace was kind of prepared, I know the flooring in my flat won’t stain from bleach, hairdye accidents happened before but everything that might suffer was put aside, be careful! Bleach was mixed and applied, color went lighter and I stopped somewhere between the red and orange phases (roughly 20 mins but if you’re doing this by yourself remember to try in between to find the right amount of time for the exact color you want to see in the end!) and washed it out in the shower, dried and decided the print was fine the way it was, back then I often did a second or third bleaching for highlights or add acrylic color, really liked the broken touch it added.

And sorry, this shirt will also be shown in next Outfit post!

Then, as always some cuts happened and I wonder if there is only one shirt that didn’t suffer from my scissors in my entire wardrobe? Maybe on the pile to wear at official, serious dates like job interviews, maybe one? But this time not much that had been cut, hems got removed and a sleeve, then I was happy with it and decided I should do this with basic clothes more often again, alter clothing while listening to the good old music from ‘back then’ while dancing, singing and smiling because of all the memories. Therapeutical destruction?

What were your latest DIY projects? Have a nice evening!


Today’s Outfit & Makeup 16-07

Hey there, Internet!

Actually, nothing special was done that day, being lazy, watching DVDs, skype, cleaning the flat and that fuzz. But as you were able to read a few days ago, I slowly am getting back into my old shape which means my corsets and other ‘tight fitting’ clothes start to feel better on me again, who could resist putting them back on asap?

Today’s Outfit & Makeup 16-06 (II)

Hey there, Internet!

Another day off that I spent with that friend from last time and Pokémon X/Y, it definitely will be a tough challenge because we both started with generation one and both maybe a tiny bit obsessed. Really looking forwards for the next few weeks, will be visiting a friend in northern Germany soon so maybe some long overdue clubbing night!

No corset today because I was unable to find one that would look good with this top!
