OOTDs: an Attempt to be Elegant

I’m feeling a lot better than I did a few weeks ago. Sometimes time away from things can really help smooth things over. But in any event, I do have some pretty cute OOTDs to show you!

Wide-Legged Pants by Asfurah
Top: Boohoo
Pants: Asfurah
Shoes: Windsor

I absolutely love this blouse (which is actually a dress) that I got from Boohoo and I’ve liked wearing it a lot, so I decided to pair it with some awesomely comfortable wide-legged pants I got from Etsy! These pants are absolutely amazing and I’ve worn them with a variety of different tops from velvet blouses to tees so I’m sure they’ll be making an appearance here on the blog quite a few more times.

Victoria Top by Pinup Girl Clothing
Top: Pinup Girl Clothing
Skirt: Lady Sloth
Shoes: Forever 21

I wanted to break out my new blouse from PUG Clothing so I decided to pair it with an elegant skirt I’ve been wearing a lot recently. I really like the way the outfit turned out, elegant but also a bit edgy with the skeleton motif and the blocky boots. I definitely really liked this look.

Also, I decided on a fringe bang and I actually really like it! It’s nice to try something different every once in a while.

I hope everyone has been having a wonderful week and that this upcoming spring will treat you all well! Until next time!

OOTDs: a Period of Indifference

I realise now that I’m not in the best financial situation so if you or a friend needs a website, I’m offering layouts for as low as $20 and I’d really like to help! In the meantime, I will not be buying anything new until I can get my savings back on its feet.

That’s why this blog post is titled “A Period of Indifference.” I’m trying not to think about it!

Anyway, here are some OOTDs from the past week:

Sweater by Sourpuss
Sweater: Sourpuss Clothing

I was pretty disappointed I couldn’t buy any more spooky Christmas sweaters this winter but am so glad I do have the ones I have from Sourpuss! I paired this one up with a basic velvet skirt and some booties and I think it looked really cute. I’m pretty sure I’ve done similar outfits before but you can’t go wrong with this one!

Dress by Pinup Girl Clothing
Dress: Pinup Girl Clothing
Shoes: Bettie Page Clothing

I got this dress for Christmas and even though I absolutely love the black harlequin print, it fits weirdly and the fabric is much stiffer than I thought it would be. It stays in whatever position you put it in, which would be great if you don’t want a flowy skirt effect. Alas, I really think it’s cute and will try to wear it more often.
My feet hurt from wearing a new pair of shoes so I decided to go on some short heels, but it would definitely look cute with a bunch of other shoes.

I have a very busy week ahead of me so I’m not sure if I can blog next week but I will definitely try. Until next time!

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.

Skirt by Lady Sloth

Skirt by Lady Sloth
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!
