Slowly getting closure

I found this piece of 'halloween witch' dress in my mother's closet (but I don't think it's hers). The dress was a little bit loose to me, so I put on a skinny belt instead.

I got a story about how I get these pair of Jeffrey Campbell Lita. It was the golden moment of Lita, and I can't find it everywhere because EVERY online shops ran out of my size. I keep searching and searching, but still, nothing. So I ran out of hope to get these pair. Then right on the day before I flew off to Melbourne, me and my friends grabbed some dinner at one of the famous restaurants in Sydney, Hurricane that located at Bondi beach. As we were waiting for the food, I went to the store next door with a friend because she needs to buy some thick scarf. When I enter the store, I could see a beautiful pair of Taupe suede Lita right in front of me. I asked them whether they have it in my size or not, and yes they have! I tried it on, and perfect. It was a store called Tuchuzy. They sell range of Jeffrey Campbell shoes, Alexander Wang sunnies, etc! You gotta love the store, seriously. Go check their blog.

I had to alter the dress cus it's too big for me. I also asked the tailor to make the inner skirt short(it was a full length dress). Nice isn't it? :)

And here's a quote,

"I have no regrets in my life. I think that everything happens for a reason. The hard times that you go through build characters, making you a much stronger person."

Well, I couldn't agree more! After all that I've been through, I could say that I really, really felt so good to let go of it. I move on, and I let go, but I never, ever forget.

Beautiful, beautiful dress, gothic-fairy-like!
I would be the happiest firl on earth if my mum owns dresses like that.
I love how you tailored it and got the inner skirt shorter. Was the hem already uneven or did you tailor it to be uneven?
Oh and you can't go wrong with a pair of killer Jeffrey Campbell.

Karina, you're such a beautiful girl!
I usually only follow blogs which feature everyday outfits that I can relate to (a.k.a not, you know, too high fashion-y) with no professional retouched pictures. But after browsing around, I found myself enchanted to your blog! I might not wear the outfits you featured, but surely I can 'steal' some inspirations here and there.
And a daughter who 'raids' her Mom's closet for fantastic pieces? That's a girl after my own heart! I do the same when I want something uniquie/vintage/branded that I can't afford with my own hard-earned salary. Haha!
I'm following you via bloglovin now!
