VirginBlak Review

I have another store to review for today!

This time it's for Virginblak, which is trendy shop for men's fashion based in Korea.

I've ordered from Virginblak numerous times so I'll show you what I ordered this time and some of my favorites from the past!

I decided to get one of the Virginblak gift package boxes which was a mystery box of merchandise. The box cost $39.99 and consisted of 2 sunglasses, 2 beanies, 2 misc accessories, and 2 Shirts.

This was sort of fun as I got to see what I'd get not really knowing what to expect! First the packaging was the nicest I'd seen from Virginblak as it had it's own giftbox and everything inside was individually wrapped.

First were the beanies, there were two in the box. One charcoal and a khaki/camel color one. I honestly haven't really worn beanies before but these were soft and appropriate for the current season. I think I'd at least try out the charcoal color one if it gets cold enough.

Second there were two different sunglasses. And I have to point out it was really nice how the sunglasses each had their own individual packaging and also had a cloth for wiping dust and also to protect the lenses. The first were a color style and the second much more monochrome, I think it was a good difference of variety.

Third there was this spiked bracelet. I love this bracelet! I found it to be totally my style so it's one of my favorite accessories in the box.

One of the most unusual items were these faux tattoo sleeves, I haven't tried them on yet so I'm not sure how they look. I don't have any tattoos myself but I'm sure I'll find a use for them in a costume or something perhaps.

Lastly I had two different shirts. One was a long sleeve shirt in grey and I found this very easy to wear for the upcoming season. I've been wanting more long-sleeves so I think it's going to be something I'll get plenty of use out of. The other was a really interesting and unusual type of leather garment, sort of like a sleeveless leather tunic. The second was definitely unusual but it seems perfect to at least get some photos in so I think I'll save that for another time.

If I had to score everything I'd say...

Packaging: 10/10
Delivery Speed: 7/10
Value: 8/10

Overall I think the gift package was a lot of fun to get as it's just a mystery box and so it's sort of a fun surprise. And in total there are 8 items in the box so it's a definite savings compared to the regular value of their items. Although you might get some stuff that isn't as much your style or color you'll likely enjoy most of it if you like the general style of their clothes. I'm happy I got the box as I even got some items I never saw or likely would have got on my own so it's a way to try out some new stuff!

Anyway besides the box you can always just order their clothes individually.
And... as promised here some photos of me in some of favorite clothes I've gotten from Virginblak in the past!

The first is some jeans, I wear these pretty often. They're just so versatile and go with pretty much everything I own!
The second is a black cardigan which is great for layering.
And the third is a sleeveless fishnet cardigan top, I seriously think this is one of the most unique things I own.

I hope you enjoyed my review. Be sure to check again for when I have some shots of more of the new clothes I got this time as well.

~Back In *Mostly* Black

I have some new looks to share today!

I did three different styles with an emphasis on  slight changes to show how much you can change up your outfit with even one or two different things.
I tried more of a nu-goth look for this and as always you can let me know what you think or what you liked most. Several items are from as well.

Outfit 1
This was my favorite. I just love this sheer black duster! It's lightweight, easy to wear and it really gives you a sense of character and has that sort of witchy, mysterious look. One of my favorite things about it as well is the sleeves, they're extra long, which means they fit even my rather long arms (and I love when long sleeves cover my full arm).

Sheer Duster Cardigan: Dresslink
Tank Top: Tony Hawk
Jeans: H&M
Shoes: YRU

Outfit 2
Sheer Shirt: Dresslink
Necklace: ShePaintsWithBlood
Sunglasses: Dresslink

I love the shape of these sunglasses. They're really quirky but dark and full of attitude.
Both the sunglasses and the sleeveless sheer shirt I am wearing over the tank top are both from Dresslink!

Outfit 3
My third and final oufit was definitely the most different from my typical study. Floral and colorful patterns are quite trendy, particularly for Summer/Spring. The modernized kimono cardigan is also quite popular right now.  The one I am wearing is a sheer blue kimono top with floral pattern from Dresslink once again. Even though it's bright and colorful, I stayed true to my own style and kept the look edgy and dark.

Kimono Top: Dresslink

~Summer Style

Since Summer is coming to a close, heres a recent "Summer style" look I did recently. Love all these accessories.
Even with simple clothes you can really make your own style with the right accessories.
Here I'm also wearing some of my first colored sunglasses.
Typically I usually wear black sunglasses but the bit of color can work nicely as contrast to the rest of your outfit.

The color I'm wearing is Type 6 (Black Blue) and guess what they are for sale for less than $2!
Plus there are several other color options as well.
You can get your own sunglasses like these from Dresslink.

Dresslink: Wishlist

It's been a little bit since I shared a new website so I thought now would be a good time to introduce another cool place to shop online.
This time it's for!

To start off I thought I'd pick out some of my personal favorites I found while checking out the site!
For me one of the most important things I pay attention to is dressing for your body type. Picking out things that flatter you is how to make yourself look great.

                                                                      Open Shoulder Chiffon Blouse

~White Eyes

Greetings everyone, I know it's been a little bit before I made another post. I've had to put aside a lot of projects lately due to studies.

However, I wanted to share with you my newest contact lenses I got from Pinky Paradise!

 I really missed having white contacts, as both eventually tore a part (on different occasions).
Contacts like this are excellent for being so striking and are perfect for costumes and cosplay.

Contacts: Pinky Paradise
Claws: Myril Jewels
Blazer: Lip Service
Pants: Virgin Blak
Boots: Demonia

I love these contacts!
And you can also order your own pair as well (they have tons of different contacts in all different colors and many other more natural looking colors).
