Execentrique Winter Collection Thoughts.

Excentrique revealed their photo catalogue for their Winter collection Carnival in the Dark.



Being a massive fan of Excentrique, I happily clicked away at the link. These were a few of the pieces that caught my eye. They do have several other looks so have fun watching.  



The print for the collection is his Carrousel hot air balloon clip art nightmare. It looks good on a bag, but all over a dress? No, this is too much for you Excentrique and luckily I’m happier with the other items.




A stripped green theme runs throughout the collection too. It’s very refreshing since green isn’t too common of a color. They also have a similar stripped theme in red.  






This jacket is awesome. It wonderfully mimics what I imagine the ring leader of a circus would wear.




The same vibrant red is also used in one of Excentrique’s signature corset skirts. This one features some interesting looking brass buttons and a golden jabot.



One of the striped pieces is very Addam’s Family reminiscent with its black and grey color scheme. Though, I think this specific piece looks like an artist’s smock, and a long sleeved dress is not very practical in Texas.



This dress, however, I love! I really like the subtle stripes and the simplicity of the design, which is easy to wear. I wonder if this will come in the Addam’s Family black and grey.

 


The second dress I like is this jumperskirt style. The lace along the bottom matches a blouse, which is stunning with pintucks down the front. I think the white of the dress, however, is a bit dull. The way the doubling of the fabric along the seams is just a bit off putting. I hope this comes in a different color, perhaps a green or deep red to the standard black.


What from Excentrique’s Winter collection are you excited for?

Taobao Hual








The first thing I bought was this massive Classical Puppets A-line petite coat. I had it custom made to add some length to it, but oh my,  is it huge. I stuffed it under my mattress in hopes it would deflate, but that didn’t work. I took out a layer of fluff and it’s still huge! 


Oh well, it’s currently stuck in my mattress so hopefully it’ll be down to a reasonable size son.



Next, I bought this blouse from ichigo 15...in three colors. I love the blouses from this brand.  They are custom made and very easy to wear.



The black blouse is also from ichigo 15. I have a similar style in loved sleeved. It wears wonderfully and I love the extra pintucks. The blue blouse is from X and I would not recommend buying this. The elastic on the sleeves are very tight and uncomfortable even after first putting it on.


The next  item was a Miss Point skirt. It was by the biggest impulse buy of my life. I didn’t even try it on I sold it as soon as it came!


I got a large wicker purse, which is much larger than I thought it was. The hard whicker purse with the brown is very cute, while the white pearl purse was covered with hot glue strings. 



I think out of the three the one with the brown accents is the best. It even has a floral pattern on the inside.



The final items are a collection of small items. The top both came from this store and while the cat purse is smaller than I thought the level of detail is amazing. There are several different kinds of quilted textures and the cat’s tail moves. The ID holder I’ve been wearing since I received it and is holding up very well. I would be happy to buy from this shop again! The mirror and card cases are fine. I found the green one to not work well for my needs. There is no space to double up on cards so with only four slots it was lacking. The grey one didn’t feel sturdy enough for me so that’s another pass

Out Fit of the Day: MMM & MM



Just a few quick snap shots of an out fit of the day. I realized after the photo that everything is from two brands Moi meme Moitie and Miho Matsuda. Talk about attack of the Ms. I love this MMM dress it's over 10 years old and still in awesome shape. On top of the print there's a weave to the fabric.
