OOTDs: Embracing Winter

I’m sorry for the lack of blogging. I’ve been busy and with this increase in my work comes a decrease in energy. Alas, I’ve been able to put together some OOTDs for today and hopefully next week, I can have another swatch post up.

Black velvet dress with a red leopard bag
Dress: MoonMaiden Gothic
Coat: Heavy Red
Shoes: Ebay
Bag: Etsy

Since I’ve been so sick of wearing sweaters and leggings, I’ve been wearing these boots a lot and it’s been a great alternative to my warm outfits that also make me look a bit basic. I was definitely happy that this came together and thought it looked trad but still elegant, especially with the red leopard purse I haven’t used in years. It’s not a favourite look but at least it was breaking out from wearing the same old stuff, for me.

The coat is by Heavy Red and is quite warm but two of the buttons have already broken off so while it’s the best coat I have, I’m hoping that I don’t get judged too much for how tattered it is.

Top: Boohoo
Skirt: Lady Sloth
Shoes: Forever 21

I decided to wear this skirt again since it’s one I seldom wear and I absolutely loved it paired with a velvet top I got from Boohoo! It ended up not being the best choice for this below-freezing day but I actually really loved this outfit, and it’s perhaps one of my favourites. I’d definitely like to wear this skirt more often.

Last year was definitely giving me some doubts but this year, I have a lot more faith that things will get better for me. I’m currently on a buying break until probably March, since I really need to focus on loans and other things now, but I’m also eager to get back into my closet and work with things I haven’t really worked with before.

I hope everyone else is having a promising year. Until next week!

My Holiday Dress

Now that the holiday feeling is coming to a close (and also because I forgot), here’s a quick pic of the holiday dress I got this year.

Dress by Heart My Closet
Dress: Heart My Closet
Shoes: Bettie Page
Wrapping: Me, helped by Papyrus

I really love this dress because it has such a delicate lace detail and the buttons on the side really make it special. Since I always tend to “dress up” by today’s norms, this was really a dress that looked formal and elegant for me, keeping with my style but nothing that looks like what I wear every day. The best part is that everything in Heart My Closet is made to measure, so everything I’ve gotten there fits perfectly!

I can’t wait for another event where I can wear this dress! I hope 2018 will be a good year, not just for me but for everyone.

I hope the first week of the new year has treated everyone well! Until next week!

OOTDs: Hot and Cold

I’m a little surprised at how normal this year has been in terms of weather (kinda) but the OOTDs I have today were shot in very different temperatures because, ya know, global warming. (Did you know that not eating beef can help with that?)

Anyway, here are some OOTDs:

Pants by Windsor
Top: Vintage
Pants: Windsor
Cardigan: Boohoo

So I love these pants and I’ve actually worn them a lot with basic black tops, but this day, I decided to pair them with one of my favourite vintage tops, which is a crushed velvet. Since the pants are pinstripe and the top crushed, I decided to play on the texture with a knit-look cardigan, since it was rather chilly. I really liked the result! I love how it’s sophisticated yet still dark. These pants are an absolute staple in my closet.

Horror-inspired outfit

Bracelet by The Kitschy Cupcake

Zombie Stomper Shoes by Iron Fist
Dress: MoonMaiden Gothic
Belt: Pinup Girl Clothing (came with dress)
Bracelet: The Kitschy Cupcake
Shoes: Iron Fist Clothing

You know how you have something you love that you never wear? That’s me with these shoes, which I’ve only worn about 5 times since I got them over a year ago. Granted they’re not the best walking shoes, I decided to wear them out on a hot day a few weeks ago (you can tell as my hair was still long). I grabbed these nice green shoes, paired them with a fun magenta-coloured lipstick, threw on a really cute horror movie bracelet I got off Etsy, and then completed it with a spider web belt. It was such a cute outfit! I don’t venture much with colour but I loved how this threw together the colourfully creepy without being too “cute.”

I was going to write a political post about wearing short dresses like this but honestly, it just ended up being a short snippet of me saying, be the change you want to see in the world and wear whatever you want.

I’m so excited that Christmas is coming up and even more excited because my full-time job starts in January, which means I’m actually working towards a career again! I don’t know what’s coming next week yet but I’ll be sure to post. Until then!
