what I wore : beetle drink? beetle breakfast? Beetlejuice?!

Monday, April 29, 2013

details 
pants - H&M
sunglasses - Target
camera bag - Epiphanie
tooth ring -  Extollo Jewelry
poison ring - ebay
chevron ring - c/o Eclectic Eccentricity
socks - Romwe (last year)

I went into H&M for the very first time last week. I always avoided going in because I thought it was way more expensive than it really is and I'm kind of a cheapskate. I was found the prices (on all the things I was looking at at least) to be comparable to Target prices which is pretty awesome. The store was kind of disorganized but I did manage to find these stripes jeans. I have wanted black and white striped jeans for so long. But I'd never seen any in person and jeans are the one of the few things I rarely buy without trying on first. I am so excited to finally add these ridiculous jeans to my wardrobe. I've already worn them a few times already.

This chevron ring from Eclectic Eccentricity has quickly become a favorite of mine. I absolutely adore the way it looks with my tooth ring (which I wear everyday). It's so great to find rings that don't come as a set that look like they should have.

Hope you have a lovely Monday!
xoxo

  4. Those pants! I have never been able to find PANTS like that, only leggings. I have to swing by H&M soon and snag some up. I love the polka dotted sock combo, too!

  6. The only thing that I don't like about H&M is how popular it is. I don't like having the same thing as other people, I guess I'm a brat, haha. But I did buy a black and white striped t-shirt dress from there recently. And I enjoy their leggings

    Not sure how much that would be in dollars! If I come to the states I think you should take me thrift shopping! And we can share kitty stories >'.'<

  10. I've got similar pants in grey and black from H&M from aaaages ago! I love that their pants are in a medium rise, I find it's the most comfortable for a longer torso. A friend of mine has the black and white striped ones, and told me I should pick them up, as I am a biiiig Tim Burton fan, and what else does black and white stripes evoke so strongly?!

  18. An H&M recently opened here and I thought I wouldn't find anything I liked...well damn I loved half the store, and it was very cheap as well. I'll definitely get some stripy jeans.

    "beetle breakfast" lol That's one of my favorite parts of the movie.

  23. I love H&M and I'm so sad because the one by me closed! :( But they do have great prices, usually. I have some great pieces (and some not-so-great pieces) from them. Those pants do remind me of Beetlejuice! I also love that your hair always provides a pop of color if you need it!

  30. I was also pleasantly surprised about H&M's prices. You can find some real goodies in there. At least it's more organized than Forever 21...hah. I am digging the Beetlejuice attire with your hair color. And the cat makes it complete of course!

  31. H&M can be expensive, but for their quality and design it's a pretty decent store! I saw a bag there (tan brown messenger-type bag with two snap fasteners, shoulder bag) that I wanted to use as a camera bag SO BADLY but I don't think my Nikon would have fit in in comfortably :(

  32. I have a jacket that would perfectly match those pants if you were looking to complete the Beetlejuice ensemble!!
