the rip tide

One of the best feeling is arriving home to a package waiting on your doorstep !
I recently made a purchase on this Mink Pink high-waisted lace shorts for a ridiculously low price that I could not refuse. At first I had my doubts on purchasing clothing online, as I ran the risk of it either not fitting or the seams were dodgy. However, the shorts came out as though it was purchased from a shop, never been worn nor anything wrong with it. Cannot wait to pair these up with some killer tanks with a blazer and my doc martens.
Today's outfit was rather inspired by funerals? The day before a friend suggested I'd be great working in a funeral home as my personality fits the job. I don't know whether to take that as an insult or a compliment, though it did inspire me to wear all black as I woke up to a gloomy and rainy morning. And I would like to point out first, its a two piece outfit !!! A skirt and a long sleeved top tucked under to give the illusion of a dress. They both are made from the same material.

Top: Own design
Skirt: Own design
Rings: Forever new & Diva
Necklace: Cross pendant (Birthday gift) & Spike chain (Lovisa)

I love the shorts - they are so gorgeous! I might have to go buy some now. Totally agree about online shopping - so risky!

Cute shorts!!! I love them! I am going to look for them right now! I understand what you mean about shopping online. You never really know until you get the stuff in. A lot of companies do free shipping so I don't hesitate to order from them.
