{ Backyard ghost }

This outfit was from a little while ago, and with much more black than I usually wear - I guess I was having a black kind of day. I'm hoping to get more wear out of this little jacket now that it's not so freezing cold and the dress is a gift from my favourite Big Cartel store, Miss Patina. They have a really unique and amazing range of vintage-inspired dresses and tops (this dress being one of my favourites!).

I've been to the orthodontist to have my braces tightened and am currently eating a nice cold ice cream to numb the soreness. Apparently I have to have four more teeth out, within the next eight weeks if possible. Ahhh! On the plus side I got my hair done a few days ago so now it's looking darker and sleeker. I think I like it but I'm still getting used to it (photos to come).

Alicia & Amie - Haha you girls are definitely onto something! I think I must be learning from the best; every time I go into town I'm amazed at the layered back outfits I see some girls wearing. They always look so chic and put together! x Sushi

Lay Rosa - Thanks very much :) xo

As a fellow braces sufferer, drink tea! Warmth makes metal expand, so you get less of that 'ow ow ow my mouth is being pulled together' feeling - cold does the opposite, and they get tighter, though it does numb. After I get my braces tightened I usually go through four or five cups of tea a night, it is the best remedy :3 Bonjela is really good too! Hope it begins to hurt less soon :)

(Just wait until you get elastics though :( give me plain old braces any day. I will be super jealous if you're lucky enough to avoid them!!)

Darling, as always. Your sense of proportion is spot on. I think that helps to balance the Wednesday Addams-ness of this ensemble, keeping it sweet but still edgy. That jacket was such a score!!!

Jade - Yeah, me too but it should be worth in the end! x Sushi

Meowmers - Thanks so much for the tip, I didn't know that! I don't think I will be needing elastics, but really not looking forward to getting more teeth out and being gappy for several months! x Sushi
