Paint It Black


I finally got my hands on this Black Milk piece, The Judge 2.0. This draped top is so wonderfully designed. I love the fact that it has long sleeves and an amazing bat wing effect - it's sooo flowy. I bought it to be paired with leggings, bit it's so nice on it's own, I wanted this look to just focus on the top. You'll definitely see this again in future posts.

The top is sheer so I paired it with a black skater skirt and a bandeau. I don't often wear all black because I love colourful things too much, but this outfit is killer! Plus my hair brings colour to every outfit anyway.

Tulle and Velvet


The photos don't do justice to this outfit. The velvet top is a beautiful dark berry shade and I think it compliments the tulle wonderfully. I never did ballet, but this skirt makes me feel like a ballerina. I absolutely adore it, and it's a treat to wear. I wish I had some ballet inspired flats with ribbons that tie around the ankles; I think they would be the perfect match for this skirt.

For a quick update to what's going on in my life: I probably will not be doing any more outfits posts after this week until 2014. I'm going to be very busy travelling! On Friday, I'm heading out to Germany for five days and then I'm off to Canada for Christmas. I'm very excited! If you want to see what I'm up to, just follow me on Instagram :) @themerzak

Crazy Cat Lady


I may or may not be a crazy cat lady.... Okay, I definitely am a crazy cat lady and I have been one since birth. I like to share my crazy love with the world, making cat-haters everywhere cringe when they see me.

Skater dresses are great pieces because they look great just on their own. Unfortunately it is winter and skater dresses are not appropriate on their own in the cold weather (unless you like being frozen). That's why I layered the dress over a long sleeved top. I think this looks great, especially with a collared top. Tights and maybe an extra cardigan, and you're good to go out in the cold.

Any Colour You Like

Dark Side of the Moon is probably Pink Floyd's most popular album other than The Wall. Most of the time, when you see Pink Floyd-related clothing, it's Dark Side of the Moon. I own a few DSOTM pieces because Pink Floyd is my all time favourite band. I wish there were other album covers on clothing, like Animals or Atom Heart Mother. I read that Black Milk tried to get a licence deal with Pink Floyd once, to put all the cover art on leggings... Unfortunately they were unable to get it. I don't know if this is a good thing or a bad thing, seeing as I probably would spend all my money to own them all.

Mike Wazowski

I've mentioned before how much I love Monsters Inc. It's definitely my favourite Pixar film. I also really enjoyed Monsters University. Seeing as I'm one of those people who wear clothing that depicts things I love, I had to have this sweater. Mike Wazowski is definitely my favourite character in the series. I paired it with this beautiful velvet skirt from Black Milk. Velvet is huge at the moment, and one of my favourite fabrics. A lot of stores sell velvet skirts, and maybe for cheaper than the Black Milk version, but I got to say... This skirt is the best velvet material I've ever seen/felt. The quality is just flawless and I don't think I'll ever take it off.

Le Café

Lately it's been difficult to take outfit photos due to the unpredictable weather and poor lighting situations. Today was a cloudy and rainy day, so I had to use artificial lighting which is why the photos seem a little yellow. Oh well, what are ya going to do, right?

Today I wore one of my favourite pairs of Black Milk Leggings - Van Gogh's Le Café. When I discovered Black Milk, most of the art pieces were already in the museum. Luckily, I was able to snatch these off a sharkie from Black Milk's trade and swap facebook group. I love this painting! I actually have a print of it hanging on my wall in my flat.

I also want to talk about this cocoon cardigan. Holy uber bat wings. Although it's sort of confusing to actually find the arm holes and put on, I like this sweater because it's like wearing a drape-y blanket. Super comfy outfit, I gotta say!

Favourite Fall/Winter Trends

Fall is here and winter is approaching fast. It's time to layer up and get cozy! Fall is one of my favourite seasons - the leaves start changing, you can wear cozy sweaters and scarves, and Christmas is just around the corner! Nothing better than to curl up on the couch with a cup of coffee or tea, light a candle, and watch movies , shows or read a book. I'm absolutely loving some of the trends I'm seeing this year, here are some of my favourites:


Mint, pale pink, lilac, periwinkle. Seeing a lot of pastels this winter is refreshing. It gives a bit more interest to an outfit rather than just black on black on black. There's something about wearing pastels while there's snow on the ground that's so beautiful to me. I think they look great blended with white neutrals or contrasted with blacks and greys. 

Grey Coat

This coat is a dream. It goes perfectly with any outfit and just looks so sophisticated every time. This is just a staple piece that anyone with any style can pull off.

It's no surprise I'm in love with these sweaters. They're exactly something you'd find in my wardrobe! Fun, bazaar, and just out-there prints! They're so realistic and printed in such detail, you'd definitely turn some heads while wearing it. These sweaters make a statement so effortlessly, that it makes getting dressed in the morning very easy.
