Whats shakin' bacon?
OK, this is cheating a bit. I was supposed to wear this outfit on Christmas Eve but, i wasn't able to (a long and petty story, don't ask). Sorry i haven't been posting, i have so much schoolwork, you can't even imagine. I'm actually supposed to study for my exams today, so this post will be super short. I found the dress in the pile of odd items at my class garage sale. I immediately thought "BALENCIAGA KNOCKOFF!!" (hence the title, i can dream HAHA!)

i bought it thinking it wouldn't fit me since it seemed rather small, and i would just give it to my sister. Then i tried it on and BAM! perfect fit. I need to alter the sleeves a bit, but over all its awesome brocade print, tulip skirt, poufy sleeves(tucked in because i need a few alterations as the shoulders are too big) and turned up collar. I need a leather jacket and bitchin' boots and a bowler...

BOWLER!! charlie chaplin is my best friend, really.I NEED THIS! NOW! (these are incredibly hard to come by here). These hats kick fedoras in the bee-hind


Gotta study now, ill see you tomorrow
Ina :)

P.S. My dog just ate like a whole bag of malteasers. We just brought her to the vet.Shes okay for now so please hope and pray that shes alright!! :(
P.P.S. If youre wondering if my hair is that f*cked up naturally, the answer is yes. Haha! :D
