anonymous asked:

Dear fashion goddess - please help! Where can I find a good pair of boots with cute buckles? I've fallen for the look of Ruth Mitchell Fluevogs, but they're not available in my country at a remotely affordable price. I just want cute boots... preferably wearable for winter. Perhaps you have other suggestions for brands to look at? <3

topshop is super reliable when it comes to affordable, well-made, trendy footwear. (they also have a ton of metallic options, which has won my goodwill basically forever.) I poked around for a bit, and found three options that reminded me of the ruth mitchell fluevogs:




I’m partial to the first, but as has been stated on this blog many times, I would buy nothing but red or pink shoes if I was allowed. 

fashion consults!

as most of you know, I was in the hospital this month. why? my heart. again. always. two cardiac arrests within a fifteen minute span as I was getting ready for work; an ambulance came and got me and everything. after that, it was two weeks of tests and surgery and new medications and short-term disability and ultimately, no answers. my heart condition remains a rare and mysterious jewel. so good news: I’m alive. bad news: I’m an american who just spent two weeks in the best electrocardiology ward in new york city. which means medical bills. so many fucking medical bills. 

now, I have insurance, but before it kicks in I have a significant deductible to meet. every scrap of every paycheck is going towards those bills for the foreseeable future. which isn’t great, considering I took two-thirds of my closet off to a consignment store about a month before this happened. You guys know me, I’d like to be able to fill it out again. so I’m proposing a trade: I’ll dress you if you dress me. 

style consulting - rates and services

  1. $15 option - one time occasion styling! if you have a wedding or a graduation or a big date coming up, I’ll hop on skype with you for a half-hour and see what we can do with the clothes you already have.
  2. $20 option - fashion guidance. I’ll ask you to send me five to seven pictures of outfits, styles, or fashion icons that you like. from there, I’ll write up my impressions of your fashion goals, advise you towards certain trends, and help you solidify your sense of personal style. (here is an example)
  3. $40 option - fashion guidance + personal shopper. You’ll receive all the services of #1, plus I’ll discuss your budget and then go shopping for you. I’ll put together ten items within your price range that will help you meet your style aspirations. 
  4. $65 option - fashion guidance + personal shopper + skype consult. You’ll receive all the services of #1 and #2, plus I will set up a 45 minute in-person skype consult with you. We’ll go through your closet (or whatever items you choose) together, and I’ll help you pinpoint which garments will work with your new look, and which ones won’t. 

**request via an ask - include your email address, your name, and which service you want - I’ll send you an email and we can begin the conversation there.** 

(note: all these prices are suggested. obviously if you’re willing to donate more, I’d appreciate it, each option takes about an hour and a half more to do than the option preceding it. if you want something different than what I’m offering, send me a message and we’ll talk details.)

(second note: I’ll be doing these requests in the order I get them. When I get your inquiry, I’ll let you know where you are in the queue.)

I’ll still be giving out style advice all the time on this blog, don’t worry! But in-depth, individually tailored stuff takes me a lot of time, and I’d like to be able to turn that into something I can use to buy shoes that won’t fall apart with nyc wear.

hope to dress you soon! ♥


EMILY THE JUST // EMILY THE VENGEFUL - A low chaos // high chaos mix for Emily Kaldwin

THE JUST - spotify // playmoss

“It was not your choice to be the daughter of an Empress, but I believe you’ll rise to the challenge. Stay good-hearted, Emily. Keep drawing and telling stories." 

Emily Kaldwin the Just, first of her name, a daughter of kings and queens. She holds the kingdom in the palm of her hand, but she looks to the horizon, burning for something more, something she cannot have. The sea calls her home.

THE VENGEFUL - spotify // playmoss

"They’ll say that little Emily Kaldwin the First came to power in an age of terror and corruption, and that she did her best in a world that is not kind to little girls, or Empresses." 

Emily Kaldwin the Vengeful, Void-touched, a daughter of shadows and crows. She is an empress, yes, but she sits upon a throne of bones, and rules over all that is broken. Her teeth are bared and she has tasted blood.

Mix descriptions written by the wonderful @vaulthunterexe <3
