coldlight 's Thoughts:

Hey chictopians… I had a pretty good weekend and hope you all did as well :)
Thanks to everyone who votes and comments on my photos, it’s very much appreciated :D

This is an outfit from last week, I went shopping with my younger sister to get her a Formal dress. The equivalence of a Formal in Australia is the Prom :P except I think it’s more casual here :D The dress we ended up getting was really cheap from Myer, and it’s more like a party dress so she can wear it again :D

On to the outfit…
Actually everything in this outfit was thrifted except for the stockings and sunglasses! :D hehe… You can’t really tell but the dress has little gold flecks all over the material :)
I’m wearing two pairs of stockings again!! The pair on the outside actually came with the ripped/ laddered looking parts already there. You can see from the detail it’s all very neat and symmetrical.
The stockings underneath are much more interesting! I actually received and used them about 4 years ago when our Theatre class performed Macbeth!! I was one of the witches :P and the ripped stockings were part of my costume.
Since then i’ve worn them a couple of times, for example to dress-up parties, when I dressed up as a punk and I purposely ripped them even more :D But I’ve layered them underneath and I think it looks really cool when you look closely, but it’s not tooo trashy for just going out shopping. Though I still got lots of weird looks at my legs! :D

<3 wensi :)

well in this pic i'm wearing 2 pairs of stockings, i got the top pair from a store so unfortunately u probably wouldn't be able to make the rips that even. but the pair underneath are really easy to do, just rip or cut lots of little holes in the stockings and then pull the material around the holes to create lots of runs!!

OH WOW. Not what I think is your usual style, but you are totally, utterly rocking it! I love the bow in your hair and the tights. Jacket too, but I don't think that's appropriate for where I live. XD
