Gold Jewellery & The New Paperchase Shop

People always say blue eyeshadow is a risky thing to wear, but I'm not exactly a fan of playing safe when it comes to "the rules" of style or whatever.

Seriously, who invents these ideas? Don't wear blue eyeshadow; don't wear blue and green clothes together; eyes or lips but not both; legs or cleavage but not both... *pffff* Anyway! Here I am doing the very (for real!) brave thing of wearing gold jewellery instead of silver. I had a gold candelabra earring in (which you can't see, oops), a gold bracelet, the skull ring from this post and a gold cross with red jewels on a red velvety band.





I'm also very excited because a new Paperchase shop has opened in town. It's a massive one with art and craft materials as well and even a Tinderbox coffee shop inside. If you don't explode with the cuteness of the stationary before you get upstairs to the coffee shop, that is. Tim and I tried it out ourselves one particularly hot day after a visit to the GoMA. I had a vanilla milkshake, but I think they'd forgotten to put any vanilla in it so it was technically just... uh... warm, sweet milk, I guess? At least Tim was smart enough to get a chocolate one .

  1. I think the combination with the gold and red stones and the gold details of your outfit looks great.

  3. I never understand beauty 'rules' either! I think they're made up by people who don't have the guts to wear what they really want! I am a little wary of blue eyeshadow though! I'm not a fan of bright blue eyeshadow worn alone but paired with other colours in the crease it can look nice! One of my favourite blue shadows is MACs Deep Truth!

    Very subtle gold jewellery is okay in my opinion and when paired with all black it looks quite classy! Big chunky gold jewellery is a no-no in my opinion though! I actually only own one gold item which is a ring my Mum gave me!

    I love that retro diner milkshake glass! I need some of them for my home! ♥

    1. Yeah, I think those rules are made up by people who care about being in fashion... which is totally fine! But I guess I try so hard NOT to be in fashion so I should just be smart enough to know those rules don't apply to me :p

      Haha, it's funny though. Different things definitely suit different people; I have a friend that wears tonnes of super chunky gold jewellery including massive door-knocker earrings and things with the word "bad" inscribed on them and she looks totally awesome because she's got that hip-hop zef style thing going on. If I wore that, I'd probably look like I'd stolen it! x

  4. I really admire your style, and I can't help but ask what your measures is? Like thighs and waist? <3

    1. What a strange question. I wonder why you would want to know? I must say I don't have a clue what my measurements are and I definitely wouldn't share them online. I've had body image problems my whole life, but even I'm smart enough to know that measurements don't mean anything since everyone is a different size and shape.
