Outfit Post: Eyeballs, Leather Jackets & Yet Another Cemetary

Do you remember this eyeball dress? Well, it’s easy to say that this dress and I just didn’t see eye to eye (I couldn’t resist!). So, now it’s a nifty little cropped bustier that fits very well with my new leather jacket (that you would’ve already seen if you follow my Facebook page, cough cough).

I’ve been waiting to show this outfit off for so long!

 The dress can be seen in full in this post here that seems a lifetime ago! I ended up cutting it because I never wore it. It felt I was just too short for it to sit nicely, plus the fabric/zip combination (that happens in so many dresses) drives me insane as it doesn’t allow the fabric to fall nicely, instead it juts out. People that make dress, please stop doing this. It’s cheap and makes me upset.

The leather jacket is a bit of a sad story. I surprised Coen with a leather jacket of his own (after taking measurements) but when it arrived it was far too small. Not quite small enough for me, but after lots of coercing I promised to put it to use.

These flowers are all left by my mother.

 Originally we were going to take picture on a beautiful road on Coen and I’s way home from grocery shopping but apparently this road no longer exists. Being to frightened (ahem, Coen being frightened) to park on a private road so I could take pictures with one of my favourite animals (cows!) we decided to visit some of the dead we know at another cemetery.

Do you have anything you love the idea of but you just never wear? How could you fix it?

    Hey, I've been reading your blog for ages but never commented before, just wanted to say how much I like this outfit 🙂 x

      Oh my! You have no idea how much that means to me. :3 Welcome and thank you!

    Looks great! If it doesn't work, make it work for you 😉 Is that a Hell Bunny dress that you DIY'ed? I'm just curious.

      It sure is! And that's exactly why it sat in my closet so long before I was brave enough to cut it. :3

    You did a great alteration job on this dress! I like the new skirt, I am a sucker for mesh! Also I do not like halters either. That leather jacket looks good on you, has that nice loose, 'I'm wearing my boyfriend's jacket' look without being too loose. I like the black beads, I seem to be wearing my black beaded necklaces all the time at the moment.

    I always think most of the dead appreciate the company when we visit the cemetery, as long as we are respectful and not too loud. I would love to have a cemetery picnic! I have been to the cemetery after a picnic, but I like the idea of combining them.

    I feel a little pang of horror to see the very hellbunny dress I covet cut apart, but at the same time I'm super impressed with how you've enhanced it!
    Now it's your own, and that's a far more beautiful thing.

    I'm having a hard time envisioning your displeasure for the fabric/zip; is it that the zipper is too stiff for the fabric?
    As an aspiring seamstress, I would love to get to know the complaints people have regarding clothing, so I don't commit them myself!

      Oh, I'm sorry! But it was definitely for the zip being too stiff for the fabric. As the dress isn't a straight silhouette it made the curve for the 'puff' of the skirt horrendous. That in combination with the fact that it was a bit too large on me (the seller didn't mention the amount of stretchy fabric on the back!). :3
