Heels, Check!


Wearing: Thrifted dress, Accessorize hat with old scarf, Invázió shoes.

These shoes are just crazy. I'm pretty sure they're deadstock from the 90s, got them brand new last week (and they had a whole range of choice in sizes) for 300 Forints, which is less than 1,50 USD. They are so terrible they crossed the line into cool.

However, they are also very very uncomfortable, so even as I tried them on I envisaged a great DIY project where I can actually cut out pieces from them and assemble a totally crazy bunch of objects to stick on the remaining surfaces...

The actual heels are chunky and curved, sort of Miu Miu-like, so done up, these beauties - or rather beasts -  could be great for future crazy photoshoots!

After yesterday's black and white set, here's a splash of colour!
Wearing: Tamaris mocassins, Invázió leggings, Orsay dress, H&M belt and flowers.

I've been meaning to tell you about this sweet giveaway I won at a blog I really really like! I don't know if you know Kittenish Behaviour, but it was one of the first blogs I've ever started reading - and never stopped. Purdey has superb writing style and her adventures in dating and living in London are nothing short of amazing anyway! :) I won this great assortment of things, which she actually sent me twice as the package was returned to her the first time around! I love the creams and glosses, and been enjoying making a huge mess with the nail art pen, as I can't seem to master the art of it, haha! 
Thank you again, Purdey! :)

Sheer Determination


Sheer top - Invázió, Random leggings, handmade necklace, handed-down sandals.

It rather looks like I'm back to blogging after all!

Ruth was lovely enough to award me a Liebster blog award, which is very nice especially given the fact that I was absent for such a long time from the blogosphere... These were her questions! If you feel like answering them on your blog or as a comment, please consider yourself invited! :)

1. What is your perfect Sunday afternoon?
Watching snow fall, having hot chocolate, putting my favourite clothes on, stroking a cat and reading.
2. Favourite vegetable?
I go into raptures when I eat broccoli. But really. I mean I moan.
3. If you were to hold a dinner party, who would you invite and why? (Logistical things like time, space and species do not apply here!)
Italo Calvino, Haruki Murakami, Marilyn Monroe, Martin Munkácsi, Brassai, Csontváry, my Boyfriend and my friends, plus some cats. Everyone would relax immediately because of the presence of the cats, Marilyn would dazzle everyone and the photographers would take amazing photographs and we could all talk books and sketch each other.
4. Have you been to all of the tourist monuments in your hometown?
I guess so, and many times, I like taking people around.
5. What item of clothing do you own more of than any other?
Maybe panties? That's very un-style-blogger-like, eh?
6. Grab the book nearest to you, turn to page 18 and find line 4. What is the book and what does it say? No cheating!
"Miyawaki owned a few restaurants." Not a very interesting sentence! Unlike the book, Murakami's The Wind-up Bird Chronicle.
7. Worst book you ever read?
Légy jó mindhalálig. If you're Hungarian, you know what I'm talking about. And every schoolchild has to read it. Jeez, I still get pissed off when I think about it! :D
8. Do you attempt the parallel park, or find another space?
I gave up driving altogether. :)
9. Last status you posted?
About Coelho's claim that Ulysses was utter drivel. What other proof you need that that man is stupid beyond measure? (It seems like I get pissed off about literature a lot! Oh well, everyone has their passionate topics.)
10. How old would you be if you didn't know how old you were?
9 and 29 at the same time. I remember the happiness when I turned 18 and got accepted to uni, I was so glad I didn't belong among teenagers anymore! Funnily enough I just skipped that age and ended up a child-hearted grown-up instead.
11. What's in the diary for tomorrow?
A thrifting trip in the afternoon! :)
