Not Amused (Cute Alpaca Bag)

Hello! Now that school has ended, I have more time to dedicate to my blog (until it starts again in September of course…). As mentioned in my last post, I went to AnimeNext this year with my friend. While I was there I bought a cat hat¬†and a cute bag.

Alpacas will forever be a slight obsession of mine…

Because of the color, it’s easier to match with different outfits. It could also serve as a laptop carrier.

This store is definitely 100% CUTE!

As shown above, this bag came from a Tasty Peach Studios stall. The lady there was super nice too.

My friend said that the alpaca reminded her of me because I’m generally a deadpan, cute kid. ;3;

Around finals week I styled this outfit. It’s kind of plain, but it was comfortable and still cute which is great for a person that likes comfort before anything. I also got more places to hold things besides the bag since I had cargo pants (I even have dresses with pockets).

As a side note, I thought it was really funny that the company that makes my favorite alpaca plushies is called Amuse. Why? Well, this bag says “Not Amused”! *cricket noises* Sorry for my terrible sense of humor…

Anyway, have a great day!

New Shoes (How to Style Colored Shoes)

Hello little corvids! Recently I bought some new shoes that I used for a Peppermint Butler cosplay at AnimeNext.

Even though the shoes were meant specifically for this costume, I really like the style and color. So, I found a way to mix them into my everyday outfits. (Don’t waste good shoes kids.)

One way to style “out there” colored shoes is to match the color with the rest of your outfit. Like this:

Head: trilby (Country Gentleman) with a bow attached
Top: synthetic human shirt (exclusive)
Bottom: red plaid skirt (handmade gift) and leggings
Feet: black socks and red oxfords (Dr. Martens)

You can also style shoes like this with all neutrals. Like this:

If you wear all black and add the shoes you can get a nice pop of color! Other neutrals such as grey, white, and beige should work well too. Don’t be afraid to mix up these colors as well.

Well, that’s all I have to say about that for now. I hope it has helped.
