living in wonderland

Good evening, mon cheries!
Inspiration is the addictive fuel for us fashion bloggers and it is safe to say, the couture-coated confections of our inspirations changes from day to day. 
Currently, I am immersed in an inspiration of fairytales, if you couldn't tell. Maybe I should dip back into the world of creative writing and start the novel I've always dreamt of writing...

Hope you lovely readers enjoy these stunning photos from Threadsence's latest lookbook!
Don't you just wish you could indulge in retail therapy and buy everything? (Let us pray I am not alone) And especially with precious Black Friday dawning before us, I'm sure we'll be taking advantage of the time quite nicely.

Whilst I am preparing for the SAT and living the lethargic lifestyle of an AP student, (fancy my SAT vocab word there?) posts will be temporarily on "vacation" for now.

Thanks for reading!
