OOTD: Purple, black, and a glitter bow

Purple and black is my default cold-weather color combination. They just go together so well, and have such a fall/winter feel.

Shirt: Marshall’s, sweater and necklace: Target, skirt: Deb, leggings: American Apparel, shoes: Naot, hair bow: Crown and Glory

I love wearing my Crown and Glory glitter bows both because they’re a lot of fun, and because they literally always get compliments. When I wore this outfit, I got compliments on my bow from one of my coworkers, and three of the people making the burritos at the place I went to for lunch! It’s nice to know how many people appreciate glitter. 🙂

OOTD: Pink and black and ’90s all over

Somehow I’ve become old enough that this skirt I got in middle school now feels “vintage.”

Shirt: Old Navy, vest: Torrid via fatshionxchange, skirt: maybe Marshall’s?, shoes: Sugar Shoes via eBay, necklace: gifted, earrings: Claire’s, hat and purse: not sure, wristband: Pacsun, pink ring: Kelsea Echo, claddagh ring: not sure

I got it in either 7th or 8th grade, along with another one in cream and brown. I didn’t wear the cream one much, though, so I gave it away a few years later.

This one, I’ve always loved. And thanks to the powers of elastic waists, it still fits me (which is why I love elastic-waist skirts so much, and hate the ones with zippers, which become too tight or loose with even minor weight fluctuations).

I used to think it was Victorian/goth-y, but now it just screams ’90s to me.

Pink/black murder mystery party and OOTD

My friend Michi and her friend Lisa recently had an awesome pink-and-black-themed murder mystery birthday party.

I don’t need an excuse to get all glammed up, but I do appreciate one! And this was a fun one.

Me and Michi glamming it up

Michi and Lisa sewed their own outfits, complete with fabulous pink fascinators. It’s hard to see because the picture is a bit blurry (sorry!), but there are tiny tiaras attached to them.

This top is steampunktacular. It only goes up to 1X(18-20), and I’m not sure whether that would fit me, but I hope it would. I need more steampunk in my life.
