A bunch of things to talk about in this outfit! After receiving both this apple necklace and this near-black wig the other day, I decided to dress up in a Snow White inspired outfit. My dress is yet another amazing find from my thrift shopping adventure of a week ago (I told you I got a whole bunch of amazing stuff).
The necklace is from a new sponsor of mine, Australian-based Merrin & Gussy. They've very kindly provided me with all the jewellery I'm going to need for Japan, so look out for them in my outfit posts while I'm blogging overseas!
The wig was sent to me by Abhair to review (this wig if you're looking for it). For $23, it's a really good quality wig and looks pretty darn realistic, hat on or off. The bang falls naturally and doesn't get into my eyes either. It's also ludicrously soft right now (although as I've noticed with my other wigs, that softness doesn't last for too long). The only thing I was disappointed with is the colour - I ordered darkest brown, but it looks black which makes it seem a little bit unnatural on me. However everything else about it is awesome, so I can't really complain. (And if you like this colour and are ordering it for yourself, order "2").
Lastly to note are my amazing shoes. When Topb2c asked to sponsor me, I was really excited because they sell heaps and heaps and heaps of lolita-style gear, and I've been after some chunky black Mary Janes for years. Also the shoes fit my big feet, which is something I always have trouble with at Asian stores! Expect to see these gorgeous things in many, many more outfit posts.

Science fact! Snow White was given a poisonous apple to eat by the evil Queen, but are all apples actually poisonous?
Apple seeds contain amygladin, a compound which consists of cyanide and sugar. In contact with digestive enzymes in our body, this is converted into small amounts of HCN, hydrogen cyanide, which is lethal to humans because CN (cyanide) is extremely poisonous in very small quantities, and can kill you in a matter of minutes (it's the typical poison used in old-school murder mysteries).
Don't let that stop you eating apples though. Thing is, you really need to chew up your apple seeds for your body to come into contact with the amygladin - the seeds have a tough coating which encases the amygladin and protects it from your digestive enzymes. Also, your body is able to handle tiny amounts of cyanide, so if you do accidentally eat a couple of apple seeds, you're going to be okay. In fact you'd have to crush up and eat around 143 apple seeds (from around 20 apple cores) to begin to do yourself any harm.
So anyway, how are you all today?
