The trees were taller when you were young

Dress: second hand; socks: Calvin Klein men’s socks; sneakers: H&M, belt: idk.

I don’t know what’s up with my face/pose but I kinda like it. When I first saw this dress it was instant true love but I couldn’t afford it, and frankly I found the price too high so with tears in my eyes and a broken heart I left it in the store. Now, three months later, I was randomly browsing the same store and there it was! Instantly I knew IT WAS MEANT TO BE. Obviously, we belong together and now all is beautiful in the world.

Also, as I obviously don’t have much to say, I figure now’s the best time to mention an interview with me on Smashion, a fabulous site dedicated to recycling and promoting second hand clothing. Which reminds me that aaaaages ago I was actually in issue #11 of the never-ending amazing Worn Fashion Journal. At the time I was gazing at the beautiful Swiss mountains and trying to comprehend just a single word of that crazy dialect, so I must’ve completely forgotten about it, gah! But I figure I’d mention it anyway as Worn is THE BEST and you should pretty much get all of their available issues and gush over how beautifully intelligent and perfect and astoningly gorgeous and all of those superlatives that so aptly describe Worn’s gloriousness is.


  • I adore this outfit! You’re so awesomly colourful, and you’ve totally inspired me to dig out my knee-high socks, too šŸ™‚ x

  • YOU AND THAT DRESS REALLY WERE MEANT TO BE. Idk how you do it Eline — you always look so awesome and make colours look great. I wish I had your skill to come up with such cute and colourful outfits and look adorable while doing so.

    I read both interviews and the one with Worn made me miss your pink hair. I also liked what you said about how appearance influence how other people perceive you (I always think that’s an interesting subject matter.)

    • IT IS TRUE. I wished we lived in the same continent/close to each other just to inspect and flail over each other’s wardrobe, we’d totally get inspired by one another, or at least I’d get crazy over lolita anyway :’D

      Aw, who doesn’t miss my pink hair ;________; but the upkeep is SO HORRIBLE. All my bleached hair has since grown out but I secretly just want to try a semi-darker colour again, but then again nothing would compete with pastel pink ;_;. NOTHING.
      Thanks! Me too, I always want to write something about that but there’s just so many different perspectives et al that I never know where to start…

      • I KNOW!!! If I ever come to Europe, I’m going to stop by Belgium just to raid your closet and you can wear all my frillies and it’ll be awesome! I think that you’d come up with some really cool outfits if you mixed my wardrobe with yours!

        I feel ya on the upkeep. I really want to have blonde hair again but doing my roots is just… blegh. And the bleaching process really is no fun. I want to have the light pink hair that you had but I was never gutsy enough to get my hair light enough for it XD

        Maybe you can do multiple blog posts about the subject? Like split it in parts? And a year or two later come back to it again and see if you still feel the same? It’d be interesting!

        • That would be so great! :DD

          Ah but if you ever go blonde again you can easily get some Manic Panic and know that it’s only a temporary colour! So f you’re scared or think you might hate it, know that it washes out after about 6 weeks? XD

          Maybe! If I’m not lazy… I’ll definitely think about it though hmmm…

  • Your answers to that interview were fantastic šŸ˜€ That dress looks great too, more pointy collar dresses from you woo!
