outfit

lost wisdom

 Wearing: Forever 21 stripe top, Dotti denim jacket, vintage reconstructed skirt, vintage heart belt, vintage parrot brooch, DIY lace socks, The Mode Collective black buckle boots, vintage & handmade rings and Monki canvas bag.

Oh it’s good to be back! Between my last post and now, I had dental surgery to have four impacted wisdom teeth removed. I’ve always been scared of injections and operations when I was younger. When I was seven, I had to have some minor dental surgery and I was the child who screamed and resisted all force to avoid being in the dentist’s chair. But for some reason, this time round, I was not scared at all! Perhaps it was because I knew that I’d be asleep for the entire ‘scary part’ or just the fact that I didn’t have much time to think about it at all. Everything went fine except for the fact that the painkillers I was prescribed made me throw up non-stop.. gross. I ended up not taking them anymore and I’m almost back in action again :) Today, I went out for a quick shopping trip with my little sister. It’s the first time I’ve been out of the house for over a week now and it feels so good! I needed to exchange some shoes I had bought online and also picked up a couple of sushi serving trays for a little sushi feast I plan on hopefully having once my mouth fully heals and I can eat normal foods again. We quickly snapped these photos before hand as the sunshine today was just magnificent. My mouth is still a bit swollen and bruised, not sure if you can tell in these angles though! I’ve been feeling a bit uninspired lately, probably because I spent the last seven days living within the confinements of my 2x1m bed.. but I can’t wait to get back into blogging again and I have a really exciting little project with Betts to share with you next week!

    Wow, that sounds terrible. I’m glad you are up and well. :) (I also noticed that there weren’t many shots of your lovely face, how is the bruising?)

      Hey Julie! Yeah, my face is still a bit swollen and my cheeks are quite a strange shade of green! Hopefully it will clear up soon!

    Tough girl!! I am wishing for the best to never ever pull out these wisdom teeth (hope they wont affect my dental structure in any way…)
    By the way, this looks like a super chilly but cute and lovely stroll in the park. As always, I can never get bored of your creative sense. Like the little pendant pin on the jacket.
    Hope you’re having a great day so far Connie!! Happy holidays ♥

    I only recently realized that my wisdom teeth are growing and I got a little freaked out, I’ve heard too many stories where people have had to take them out and I DON”T want to get my out D: Hopefully I wont have to.. :| Anyway, I hope the pain goes away fast! :)

    Those pictures are wonderful! I love how your brooch matches the print on your tote, and also the photo with the heart is so creative! :)
    You do look slightly different though, at least in the last picture. I hope the swelling will go away soon. My sister also had a swollen face after her surgery for a few days, and I have to admit, I laughed at her a few times because it looked so funny ;)

      Hahhaa that was the hardest part. I looked really funny I wanted to laugh at my face but I couldn’t because I was so swollen….! The swelling has definitely almost fully disappeared but I still have stitches everywhere and it’s so uncomfortable to smile and eat! Anyway thank you for your lovely comment and wishes <3

    Hi Kani,
    Sorry to hear about the throwing up – I had the same reaction to the painkillers my dentist gave me. I even blacked out once and woke up with my head in the bathroom bin!
    Turns out I’m allergic to penicillin, which is in most painkillers. Might be a good idea to ask your family about it is genetic in my case.
    Glad to hear you’re back and sounding chipper though :)
