On Saturday, I went out with my brother and Steve for a dinner at Max Brenner, an awesome chocolate-themed restaurant. On the way there, we stopped at the Fairmont Copley Plaza to visit Carly the adorable pup and take a few outfit pictures. I wish I could take outfit pictures in a fancy hotel every day…

My friend Maggie and I always match. I don’t even know how we do it. We never coordinate our outfits in advance, but we always end up wearing similar color schemes. On Saturday, when I had a few people over to hang out and watch Star Trek and Firefly, we were both wearing black and purple.

I can never get enough of these aesthetics, especially in the winter.
On Saturday I went hiking with a few friends through the spectacular mid-October foliage. Since I’ve been so into dark mori and witchy goth looks lately, I figured it would be the perfect opportunity to dress up in dark layers. (No, I didn’t stay dressed up for the whole hike–it was unseasonably warm, so I ended up taking off both my skirts and most of my jewelry and just hiking around in shorts. I also brought sneakers to change into.)
Top and cardigan: thrifted, gray skirt: Target, black skirt and belt: ASOS Curve, socks: Domino Dollhouse, shoes: LL Bean, flower crown and bat clips: Crown & Glory, crystal necklace: from my great-grandmother, gray necklace: from a clothing swap, bangles: Torrid and Deb, spike wristband: Hot Topic, studded wristband: Macy’s, skull ring: Torrid, rose ring and earrings: really old
Lately I’ve been drawn to black and gray layers: to the borders between dark mori, lagenlook, and witchy goth. I’ve been drawn to lace, velvet, zippers, asymmetric lines, balloon hems, crinkle fabric, mixed textures. To earth tones, quiet greens and browns. To amethysts and moonstones. To long, flowy skirts and dresses perfect for twirling in forests.
Click each image for details; yes, all the clothes are plus sized. They’re mostly from the expensive European shops that I spend way too much time drooling over, but there’s some ModCloth and Torrid in there too.
