Existing Budget July Favorites

Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy, it feels good to finally have a budget! I won't have to think twice when buying fancy toilet paper! Life is guud! And another thing, where the hell did my Summer go? I still haven't done all the Summer activities, like going out without drying my hair after a shower and watching IT Crowd with the air conditioner turned on. Adventure times! Oh well, might as well get cracking with another Monthly Favorites Post! 

Favorite Movie-Time of Eve

Asdjgjkghsdkjg! This is the best movie I've seen in fucking years!!! Not even Hugh Jackman could top it! It's heartwarming, ridiculously funny and at the same time poses some interesting questions!
While the story isn't something groundbreaking (set in future Japan, where androids are used like common everyday tools), "Time of Eve" is completely different from other futuristic genres.
Almost the whole movie is set in a small cafe, where humans and androids are treated as equal. As I said, nothing groundbreaking, but the movie is good not because of the story, but because of the characters, the chemistry between them and the unique atmosphere it brings. If you're looking for something that would definitely brighten up your day, this is the movie for you!  

Favorite Thrift Find 

I found this dress in my hometown. My sister bought it from a second hand store, but decided to ditch it, which means it belongs to me now! I've been wearing this everyday, outside and at home, don't know how I haven't stained it yet! It's one of those dresses you call second skin. It's so breezy, easy to wear and light, you feel like you're wearing nothing at all!

Stuff I Bought With Moneyyyzzzz 

I've been planning my Summer vacation, since last Summer! I love the seaside more than my clothes and I wish I could live there forever. I love to sit and listen to the waves for hours, it's the most soothing sound I've ever heard! So, for my little Vacation, I thought I'd treat myself with some Summer essentials! 
I've been producing a generous amount of saliva every time I see one of these mirror glasses thingies. They're so shiny and colorful, perfect for my color addiction. 
Most glasses don't suit me at all and I look like a fly that had a car accident, but I managed to find a pair that was somewhat okay on my face. Bought these from H&M!

My second Summer essential is this ruffled bikini top. Finding a swimsuit when you're boobless is a hard task. This ruffled one doesn't help me magically grow tits, but at least it's pretty, yes? 

Favorite Song

My friend broke up with her boyfriend recently and I sent her this song. I think this is the best break up song, none of that teary-eyed stuff people with broken hearts listen to! I've had so many break ups, some of them sucked so much, it's easy to forget to take the good with the bad and don't take life that seriously. 

Favorite Fashion Piece

Since I can remember, I've had a hard time wearing jewelry. I've always felt uncomfortable, like all those rings and such, restricted my moves and made it harder to wash my hands after I pee. 
I still think wearing lots of jewelry is kind of a dread, but I'm digging the tons of bracelets trend! The pink ones you see on the top are a new addition to the family and I'm planning on wearing them as often as possible, even when I have to pee!

So that's all of my July favorites! Let me know what are your favorites this month? ^_^

Styling a Yellow Waterproof Raincoat

A helicopter just flew by as I was writing this, and my immediate thought was: "It's gonna bomb us!". To be honest, my first thought was: "Oh a heli!", my second thought was: "It's gonna drop bombs on top of us" and my third thought was: "Cool!".

I don't know why, but whenever I see a helicopter I think there's actually a secret war going on which nobody told us about, and naturally we're going to be the guys who get blew up without even having the time to arrange that last pile of laundry, which has been innocently laying around for whole week.

I still haven't arranged that pile though, and I'm not planning to do it in the near future either! It's already morphed into a big chunky mountain of colorful clothes, cat hairs and a bag of what is probably a month old Doritos.
Any who, I'm quite interested, do you guys have similar irrational wtf moments?

Fashiony Part

I've made a huuuge mistake with this raincoat! I bought it an year ago, from a second hand store near our block and never wore it, because the weather was either too hot or too cold for it. 
The raincoat was squished under tons of other clothes in a plastic bag, so when I pulled it out, it was so wrinkled you could hardly figure out if it was a dead animal or an actual jacket. So I made the big mistake of trying to iron it and every sane person knows you DO NOT iron raincoats!

I practically burned a fugly brown hole into it, before remembering I have to put a napkin on top before placing the iron... I'm retarded... Either way, I wore it (the hole and all), because I love the color mix. I love raincoats that are bright and bold, and cheer up a cloudy rainy day. I can imagine wearing this in foggy London with a pink umbrella, humming "Singing in the rain" tune. 

I styled the raincoat with a neon tunic underneath, blue denim shorts just because the tunic was too short and skanky, platform sneakers and knee high socks, which I pulled down because it got too hot. I think this raincoat would be a perfect statement piece for a more darker outfit, but you know me, I stay away from dark clothes, like I stay away from healthy food. 

(a menstrual-looking postscript)
I just googled "yellow raincoat" and the first result was a Justin Bieber song....Eeeeeeeewwww!!!

BTW, I'm thrilled to announce last week was extremely uneventful, just like I planned! My whole week can be summarize into this photo: 

My next week should be exactly like this, but the white shirt would probably be stained with ketchup.

Frontrowshop Vintage Lace Dress

Apparently I have a thing for lace this Summer! Last year was all about leather, but this year wherever I see a lace thingy I need to have it! 

Even so, my grandma wasn't too pleased when I refused to take her crochety-lace table covers for my"new life with the boyfriend". I've been living this new life for like, 4 years already, and I still haven't taken a single crochet cover. It's supposed to be some kind of a dowry or something, so sooner or later I would be pressured into taking them and maybe even placing them on my nightstand...the horror! 

Still, you can't refuse grandma! If she says "eat", you eat, if she says "take the crochet covers" you fucking take those ugly crochet covers and place them on your table! 

Any who, where was I? Oh yes, the lace craving. I don't know if it's the years talking, maybe I'm finally getting older, but lace is my new thing this Summer. I saw this gorgeous vintage number in Frontrowshop and had a slight *heavy breathing* moment. The loose design is exactly what I need for our hot humid days. 

I decided to style my new lace treasure with a slight bohemian twist so I paired it with camel platform boots and a big leather shoulder bag. The transparent bracelet is also from Frontrowshop. It's feminine and at the same time very casual, so I would probably be wearing it with combat boots as well! ^_^  

Don't mind the big fugly scars on my legs! I've been bumping into so many things lately, I could easily be mistaken for a one dimensional novella character, maybe an "awkward" love interest for a stupid vampire...or a stupid werewolf...or a Wolverine...that would be so lovely!
