Red Leather

So I've never worn these pants out anywhere because there's some things that, even for me, are just too intense! But I thought it was about time because look, they are just too amazing not to share with you guys. This is actually a two piece but there's no way I could pull of both the top and pants together. If you're wondering where I found them they were actually a gift from my grandmother in Austria. I love the whole design of these, from the pockets and reversed leather panels down the side, to the pleats and the domes and the way I've folded up the bottoms.

The shoes I'm wearing are my brand new Jeffery Cambells! I'd been wanting a pair of these for ages and as I was wandering around Nelson with my friend I followed her into a shoe shop and there they were for only $75! They're normally around $200 so I was pretty stoked. I love that they're platforms because I suck at walking in heels but they are so comfortable and don't hurt my feet. And if you've seen how tall my boyfriend is you'll understand why I'm so exited that I'm up to his chin now!

I'm wearing two tops layered because the fishnet one was a bit revealing on it's own and I think the hint of red underneath ties it all together. I would've worn a jacket with this but it was soooo hot in my room, yay this means summer almost here!

Golden Monochrome

Well I had fun editing these, especially the last one. Cheers Isaac for assisting me for a few of them. I felt like doing something a bit different so I played around with some settings on my camera doing alot of movement based stuff. I experimented with layering photos on top of eachother which you'll see some more of when I upload them to my facebook page Maniana's Style.

I've been meaning to do a post with these pants for a while but could never find anything to go with them. Then I thought instead of just wearing them with some boring colours to make them stand out, I'd wear my bronze jacket and stand in front of a gold curtain instead. Typical Maniana logic really. Some will think it's a horrible combination I'm sure but I love things that catch people's eye, even if that's not in a good way. 

I got these pants at Ladybug Boutique in Nelson (formally The Great Mistake) and this jacket was an old dress of my mum's. My Johnny Depp t-shirt is from Booklovers, one of my favourite shops in Nelson, and I put the mesh top over it which I scored at Trash Palace in Takaka. You can't see it in any of these shots but the belt has little elephants on it, I got it last time I was in Wellington at the Aro Valley opshop. The yin-yang necklace I made with a bit of ribbon and a bead I found at Whirled, which is also where I bought the bracelet.
