Wheels and Dollbaby Dita Cardigan

Who else has been looking at these blasted cardigans for absolutely ages and really, very badly wanted one?  Me too. 
So when ebay sent me a 25% off coupon for one day only, and then the eBay seller who is selling the Dita cardigans decided to have a sale on the exact same day.....well, it was kind of meant to be....right?
Now that I own one, the novelty wore off pretty quickly.  I probably ordered a size too snug and while it fits OK, I am used to a more loose fitting cardigan.  The buttons only *just* button up and I am always very self conscious about my boobies being contained.
The cardi is also very thin and elasticated.  I thought it would be a thicker weave and slightly more warm.....but that's the price you pay for ordering blindly on the Internet.  Overall I am happy with my purchase but I am very, very glad I did not pay full price for it.

Playing with Neons, Crackles & Decals

This is not the best I have ever done.  The color is garish, the crackle is a bit blechhhh and the whole job was a bit amateurish.  But there was something about it that made me leave it on for 3 days.  I kept looking at the little line the crackle did around the decals and thought it looked rather cool. 

The base was Color Club's Peppermint Twist from the Poptastic collection, crackle from OPI and the chevron decals from Dead Set Babes.

FNUG Psychedelic

In keeping with my self imposed ban on purchasing any more new nail polish, I am digging through and pulling out some beauties that I've only worn once.  How could I only have worn something this gorgeous only once?

This was 3 coats of FNUG Psychedelic.

Irregular Choice BAMBI Deer Shoes!

So.  I have Bambi shoes.  Yep.
This recent shoe purchase was really a no brainer.  As soon as I saw Aberrant Sole's Instagram photo of them I just blindly tapped on their website and had them purchased within 2 minutes flat. 
Price?  I can't even remember seeing one.....the price was irrelevant.

Onto the shoe review.  The heel is higher than my other novelty Irregular Choice shoes, and probably my highest heeled shoe I own.  Because this heel is so chunky and wide, walking in them is not difficult.  You girls who are used to stiletto platforms will have no trouble with these at all.

The color is a baby blue, they are adorned with Bambi fabric and have cherries attached to the front.  These shoes cover everything I go nuts over....the color, the fabric and even cherries.  The placement of the Bambi's on the fabric is also even with both shoes looking similar, which is fabulous.

When I first pulled them out of the box I did have a panic as they looked so teeny tiny in size.  Because the heel is quite high and wide, it makes the shoe itself look small.  I am a standard size 37 and these did fit fine after wearing them in for a little while.  I write after 'a little while' because the right shoe was initially about a size too small, yet the left shoe fit fine.  I was quite perplexed as they obviously had not been used for a display purpose as the shoe is a website only sale.  After wearing them around the house for about half an hour, the right shoe did stretch and felt fine. 
Thank goodness.

As for a prolonged fit, the Velcro strap does wiggle slightly loose after a little while and I did need to stop and re-Velcro occasionally.  This happens to my IC Cat shoes too.

The inside is a holographic velveteen!  Being a lover of all things holographic I was very pleased!

And IC have detailed a pastel colored Griffin as their artwork of choice for this Season's heels and shoe box.  I display my IC shoe boxes and use them as hat boxes.  They are just too pretty to put inside the wardrobe.

Irregular Choice released 3 styles in the Bambi heels last week.  Mine are called 'Cherry Deer'.  If you can't find your size do not fret.  Modcloth usually get stocks of the novelty IC shoes as well as Aberrant Sole currently selling them.  I am not sure if IC plan on restocking....BUT....a little birdie told me there are more styles to come so keep your eyes peeled!

Snow Calls For A Fabulous Leopard Coat

It never snows in my hometown.  It can get to MINUS WHATEVER degrees and freeze your boobies off but it won't snow.

But the other day it DID snow!  Well, more like slushy sleet actually, but it was SNOW nonetheless!  It was very exciting and I needed it as my Facebook status immediately!


See?  Snow!!

Drip Drip Manicure

I'm still loving the Color Club Popstastics this week, in Mrs Robinson and Edie.  I think I am needing shots of neon in these dreary weather's an average of ZERO degrees here!

The drip decals are from Dead Set Babes.  They are made from vinyl making them super smooth and easy to apply and remove.  I love them!
