Rosetic Haul & Review

Hi everyone.

 

I know it’s been AGES since I wrote a proper blog post – things have been really crazy with my wedding being less than 2 weeks away! I just have to share these awesome clothing items with you though!

 

A few months back, I stumbled upon Rosetic. I am often wary of buying clothing online, but they had amazing items, and very good reviews, so I decided to order a few goodies that caught my eye. Sadly one of the items I ordered were out of stock and was shipped two weeks later, so that piece has not arrived yet.

 

For each item I will show the listing image with the purchase link, followed by my review and own images. Please excuse the blurriness of some photos and my un-makeuped face. I did not stylise these items in any way so that I portray them in the most accurate way possible.

This top was the first item I pulled out of the envelope, and was actually the one I was most excited to receive.

So does it look like the picture? Well, not entirely. But I don’t hate it. I actually love it. The only thing that I really don’t like is how the fabric photographs on my phone, haha! The fabric is soft and breathable and the top is very comfortable due to the stretch. The only major issue I have with it is the cravat. It doesn’t look anything like the photo – it’s very one-dimensional, and it also only has one size setting which is too big. Luckily it is removable! I am sure that I can style it nicely though. The sizing issue is very easy to fix as well.

My favourite part of this top is the beautiful filigree pattern on the mesh:

I also love the button details on the sleeves. It also has a corset style lacing detail on the back, but I couldn’t take photos of that on my own.

Of course to style this top, I will tuck it in to a skirt and wear either a waist belt or an underbust corset with it.

This top will certainly see lots of wear in winter! And it will look gorgeous with the next item I’m going to show you!

 

Purchase here

I actually almost ended up not buying this skirt, but I am so glad I did!

As you can see, this skirt looks pretty much exactly like the image. I must admit though, the fabric isn’t what I thought it would be, but looking at the listing again, it is exactly what it says it is. The skirt is a cotton blend, and sits very comfortably. Because of the fabric, I can definitely wear this in summer as well as in winter. The buttons might be a nuisance to do up every time I put this skirt on though. I really love how figure hugging and comfortable it is though. This is also actually my first proper Victorian looking skirt!

 

Purchase here

This might sadly be the only item I am a little bit disappointed with.

I knew this dress was made of polyester, but the way it feels on the skin is not comfortable at all. I am hoping that once it’s been through the wash it will be feel a bit softer on the skin (and obviously much less crinkled, because that also made an impact on my thoughts on it). One thing that I am definitely not disappointed with though, is the size of the sleeves! I wanted a dress with MASSIVE bell sleeves and this is perfect. It is, however, a lot shorter than I anticipated, so I shall definitely be wearing this dress with opaque stockings rather than sheer.

 

Purchase here

I had some mixed feelings about this dress, but I realised why while I was writing this review.

This dress is the same sort of fabric as the previous dress and arrived super crinkled, which explains my instant dislike for it. It is a thinner fabric than the previous one, and definitely breathable and good for summer. For this listing, I didn’t read the material type and was expecting viscose or something similar but it turned out to be polyester. I do think that I can get wear out of this dress though once it’s been though the wash, and if styled correctly. I don’t like the belt that came with it, but I think one of my PVC or corset style waist belts can work really well.

 

Overall, I am very happy with my order. I’ll definitely be ordering from them again in the new year, but will double check the fabrics before ordering. I ordered all of these items in Medium and they fit true to size.

 

If you order from Rosetic or have ordered from them before, let me know what you think of their items!

My Favourite Pictures and Memories from July

Hi everyone!

 

Here’s another post that’s part of the ESG: My favourite picture of the month July swap on Swap-Bot.

 

So at at the end of June I got a 2 week contract for an office job as a content uploader. 7th July was my last day, and I took home the smiley face balloon that was tied to my chair. I took this photo after I got home on my last day.

 

The first thing I did when I got paid for the job was to buy a new cage for Frodo, my rabbit. He still refuses to climb up to the other levels, but I will have to somehow train him do it is as he needs exercise.

 

I had a really stunning Moon Goddess shoot with Taikutsuna Majo at my house on the 9th of July and this is my favourite photo from the shoot. She made the awesome headpiece!

 

This next one is a selfie we took after a really fun photoshoot on the 15th July. I wanted to insert the video we took, but it seems that I don’t have the ability to upload videos directly to the blog.

 

And here’s my favourite photo taken on that day. This might possibly be my favourite photo ever taken of me! The photographer is Xpressio – Photo Artistry. Take a look at her other work! We have been working together quite a lot.

 

One day, I came home from work and my mother surprised me with these awesome Pikachu slippers that I have been looking for for months! I love them so much!

 

And last but not least, on the 29th July I went to the Dark_Noise 10th & final Birthday Bash with my best friend Juan. It has a masquerade ball theme so these were our masks! It’s so sad that it was the last event. We had so much fun.

 

I hope you’ve enjoyed hearing about my month!

My Favourite Pictures and Memories from October

Hello everyone!

Here’s another post that’s part of the ESG: My favourite picture of the month October swap on Swap-Bot.

 

This month has been very hectic due to events with my jewellery stall and projects for university. Luckily I have a few photos to share.

 

The first two photos are from rAge Expo, which is a gaming and geek convention. I had my jewellery stall there the whole weekend. It was awesome, but I got barely any sleep! These were my two cosplay looks for the weekend – the first being Megara the forest nymph (the tattoo on my arm – I will write a blog post about her sometime soon). The second was my Little Sister cosplay from Bioshock. I made the cosplay myself and I am so happy with it!

The next one is an adorable photo of my three rats sleeping in their hammock! From left to right, they are: Dovahkiin, Eddie and Merlin! They don’t often sleep in the same spot at the moment because it’s so hot, so I just had to capture this moment.

My university’s year end function theme was Rebels & Outlaws and a few people begged me to dress Goth so I did 🙂 Here I am with my research methodology lecturer Hawken and my Brand Challenge cheerleader (the lecturer that was assigned to my group for Brand Challenge to keep up our morale), Amelia. We made up a story that they were a couple and I was their lovechild because our outfits matched so perfectly!

And lastly, here’s my boyfriend and I on Halloween. We decided to go as vampires, because he hates dressing up and it was the least amount of effort xD

I hope you enjoyed hearing about my month!

My Favourite Pictures and Memories from July

Hello everyone!

 

Wow this year is flying! I can’t believe another month has passed already. This post is part of a swap on Swap-Bot called ESG: My favourite picture of the month July.

 

I did this photoshoot on 10 July and I had so much fun! I am so in love with the result as I have wanted to do a shoot like this with my electric violin for a long time.

Next up is a photo I took of myself to promote the new scarab beetle necklace that I made for my jewellery business. I tried to match my makeup with the necklace and really liked the result.

I also bought these amazing New Rock boots secondhand from someone. They are definitely my favourite shoes that I own! I have wanted New Rocks for many years but could never afford them so I was so happy that I managed to snatch these up as they are in excellent condition!

The last photo is my look for a goth event I went to. I have been under a lot of stress lately so decided to really have fun and dress up for this one. I really like how it came out and got lots of compliments on the night.

I hope you enjoyed my photos!

My Favourite Pictures and Memories from May

Hi everyone!

It’s been a while since I posted. Life has been quite chaotic recently and May was a very busy month!

This post is actually part of a swap on Swap-Bot called ESG: My favourite picture of the month May. I generally sign up for these every month so I thought it would be nice to do them as a blog post from now on.

 

13244082_10153756071565939_1457784551349016120_o

This first one was from our monthly Goth event called Attrition. I don’t like my smile but just thought that this was an awesome photo because it shows that Goths can also be happy!

The second photo was taken at Geekfest. I had a stall there on both days and on the first day my boyfriend and I were dressed as vikings.

The third photo is from my graduation! We are still waiting for the official photos, but we took this before the ceremony.

 

2016-05-21 22.32.07-2

The last photo is from Iron Maiden’s The Book Of Souls Tour Johannesburg show. We had been waiting for this day for almost a year! They are my boyfriend’s favourite band and we never thought we would get the chance to see them in South Africa. We hope we get another chance to see them soon.

 

These were my favourite photos and memories from May! I hope you enjoyed them. I am going to try to post more often!

Attrition!

So I know it’s a bit delayed, but I’d like to share the photos from Attrition.

Attrition was this past Sunday and the theme was Vampirates!

I can’t wait for next Attrition! I will also be DJing there for the first time! I was supposed to DJ on Sunday but we had some technical difficulties with my music which will be sorted for next time.
