KrakMe Funky Socks Pink Outfit

Oh glorious future, you have come to take me to work today even though I repeatedly tried to show you that this is a bad move. I am already contemplating being a stay at home dog sitter full time, but alas, the cosmos is bursting with job positions that must be filled in order to balance out the universe. I will be starting my new jobsie today and I thought I would prepare a post with an embarrassing amount of pink this Monday to celebrate my slavery. Here it comes!

Today I wanted to share with you the first of three outfits I styled with a pair of socks  I bought from KrakMe. They're a brand I recently stumbled upon which specialize in producing high quality socks with a little bit of an edge and I absolutely adore them. The idea behind the brand is to wear socks that will cheer up a gloomy day and make you feel special and colorful, instead of hiding them with your shoes, and I am completely on board. I bought three pairs and I am planning on styling them very differently from one another, so you can see how versatile they are even though at first glance they may look like they are too much.

I was going here for a pinky look with a subtle eye makeup, but I ended up with a look more suitable for a night out at the highway. Nevertheless, I bravely walked the streets with this ensemble and almost ruined everything by screaming at a guy who was making jokes while sister was taking these photos. Yeah, being suicidal has made me a bit more angrier, Since I've always been a gentle beer drinking Bambi this change has come in handy when you want to get rid of people who love you. Works like a charm every time. This day my anger was completely targeted towards an unsuspecting general human being, and it felt good!

This got me thinking, how much anger is too much? Is showing a bit more teeth regarded as healthy or just plain being an asshole. There is a thin line and I tend to cross it and draw another line each day. I am at a point in my life where I have no willpower to be good and nice, which makes me think that all these years I've been acting like a saint has come to bite me in the ass. Maybe it's healthy to be an asshole, I know a lot of people who are doing it anyway, like the boyfriend for example who tends to transform into the Megatron of horror when he's driving. Add a spoonful of anger, mix it up with a slice of stupid pedestrians and you've got yourself a time ticking bomb!

Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not usually running down the street telling people they suck, (sounds like a good idea actually), but I have a boiling rage in me just waiting for something to happen so it can explode. I've read that this is good for people who are depressed, being an asshole means you are getting better, so I even have an excuse to be an ass.... Just try and argue with a depressed person, we have an immunity. Everyone is afraid you might die, you on the other hand don't care if you die, so even if you shout a little at your friend for falling in love with the wrong stale sausage, it ends up well.

 Patterned Knee high socks - KrakME, Everything else - Second Hand

I once got drunk very bad and continued to scream to my roommate who btw is my best friend as well. We were shouting in the middle of the night under some poor bastard's balcony, both drunk and it was the first time I was evil. It felt good. 
What do you guys think? Is being a moderate asshole healthy?

The White Teddy Coat Outfit

This post will be a shortie, because I have to clean up the house and meet the landlords  to give them cash I could spend on something relevant like pizza or anti-depressants, khue khue! The apartment we live in is falling apart (just like my life), but it still costs a pretty penny. We live in the center of the city though, which I guess is a good thing when you remove the criminally looking people and crazies, which in my opinion are the cream of society, keeping it glued together and in perspective....

Anyways, I have less than a week before I start my new job and I plan on making the best out of those days, meaning, I will nap....a lot! Before my much needed second nap I thought I would share an outfit I wore few days ago with my favorite new teddy coat.

We were taking these photos while I was trying to chase the pigeons away, cause I hate them. Pigeons are the plague of modern cities, some people find them pretty and feed them, I just want to kick one or two at least and my day would be going on very well!

The idea of this outfit was to keep it as simpler as possible accenting on the teddy coat. I wore my brown turtleneck sweater you guys remember from my previous basics post, a leather backpack and denim skirt. 

Everything in this outfit is second hand, which made me think about budget shopping. I am planning on doing a separate post on it later on, let me know if this would be something you would be interested in! 

You guys likey? Do you detest pigeons like me?

Five outfit ideas for International Women's Day

Despite me being an apartment dweller I often find various made up occasions to dress up pretty. I won't be going anywhere on Women's day, but this doesn't stop me from trying out a few outfit ideas for the holiday. After all, I ordered some food and I've got to be presentable for the delivery human.  I usually open the door in shorts one size too big for me and smudged make up, so that's 10 points for effort!

International Women's day is my favorite day, since it's all about me, myself and I. All you've got to do is be a women - check! And let the attention roll in! Notice me Senpai!
In the spirit of Women's international day I thought I'd share five outfit ideas if you will be going out and about with friends, family, or a beloved one.  So let's get cracking!

Cap it!

If you're like me, always feeling cold and lazy, you might consider Women's day an opportunity to bundle up, but in style! Hence a pleated skirt with a girly color and a sweater for uber cozines makes for a great start. You can also try out different hats to spice it up. For this outfit, I tried on a new baseball cap I bought from Calliope for just 1$! Talk about budget!

Biker Jacket

The biker jacket is a classic staple piece that I think should be in every girly's wardrobe. Whenever I want to tone down an outfit or accent on it, the biker jacket comes in handy depending on how you style it.
In this case I used an old floral dress I had and a denim shirt. The biker jacket here is from a second hand store and it's one my best purchases. It's versatile and at the same time the pale pinkish color goes well with almost any outfit I pair it with, giving it that extra boost.

Suit up!   

Since I  snatched this blazer from Zara on sale I've been wearing it almost nonstop. For a holiday glam, this time I styled it with a silk slim fitted dress. You can always play around with textures and proportions and dress it down if you prefer, but for me Women's day calls for something over the top, cause I have an excuse to be over the top! Finally!

I'm not big for accessorizing and I am still learning, but even I know flowers in the hair make me happy and feel as womanly as ever! You can try out a headband or a flower crown, go wild and make that hair look like a garden, you won't regret it!

Little Black Dress

I snatched this dress from a second hand store and as you see I am not busty enough to kill in it, but it makes for a good start. Try a classic little black dress with a bare back for a sexy finish. You can play around with a variety of accessories that would compliment your dress, like these pink socks and bandana I put together for a complete and well packaged outfit.

So what do you guys think? Which outfit is your favorite? Are you going out for International Women's day?
