This is pretty much the winterized version of this outfit: just add leggings and a blazer.
Purple and black is my default cold-weather color combination. They just go together so well, and have such a fall/winter feel.
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. 🙂
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.
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.
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.
PINK PANTS. That is all.
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.
These pics are from earlier this summer, but I’m posting them because I really like the outfit.
Better late than never. 🙂
Red and black! Polka dots and roses! This outfit is all-around awesome.
How was everyone’s weekend (long weekend, if you’re in the US like me and didn’t have to work)? I had a lovely time going to the Boston Harbor Islands yesterday. The water was freezing cold, but I went swimming anyway, and had fun. Aside from the water temperature, the weather was perfect. And I always enjoy the chance to ride a ferry.
Also, I saw a picture on Facebook crediting unions with bringing us sick leave, child labor laws, weekends, and safer working conditions. But I read it is “Unicorns Built That.” I kind of want to live in a world where unicorns build weekends.
Now, onto the OOTD! Remember that fantastic peacock-print dress I posted about a while back? It finally went on sale, and now I have one to call my own. I’m proud as–well–a peacock of it. 😉
I took these pictures on my lunch break in a lovely rooftop garden near my current temp job.
I recently came across a coupon I had printed out from when Torrid first opened:
I love the little cartoon girls representing goth, raver, glam (?), punk, and rockabilly styles. Continue reading
