OOTDs: the End of the Cold

It’s finally starting to warm up here and I’m so happy for it! I look forward to finally being able to wear the clothes and jewellery I want without freezing half to death going outside. Has it been cold where you live, too?

Here are some OOTDs I was able to wear because it was actually nice out!

Skirt by Iron Fist

Necklace by Blood Flowers Jewelry
Top: Spiral
Skirt: Iron Fist Clothing
Shoes: Unique Vintage
Necklace: Blood Flowers Jewelry

I was so excited that it was finally warm out and I was feeling elegant so went for a simplistic but sophisticated look. I finally got to wear my beautiful necklace by Blood Flowers and some shoes that didn’t have to cover up socks. Pretty nice, huh?

Dress by Shrine of Hollywood

Dress: Shrine of Hollywood

I’ve been really excited about this dress with one of my favourite prints, the Kaufman Movie Monster Print. The stitching is really weird because the seams are on the outside of the dress rather than the inside, but it’s still a cute dress. I can’t wait to wear it out more during the summer months.

I’ve been working more on getting my ducks in a row to head off this fall and even though it’s so far away, I’m still very excited for it. I tend to focus on these things so when they come so I’m going to try to keep posting weekly but I may be a bit slacking. I hope to be here next week though, so stay tuned!

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!

OOTDs: Browns

I’m not really a fan of using brown towns in my makeup or apparel but I’ve ended up using quite a few of them in my outfits recently.

Dress by Double Trouble Apparel
Dress: Double Trouble Apparel
Cardigan: Boohoo
Boots: Ebay

For many years, I was super obsessed with leopard print of all different colours and it became quite the staple of mine but over the last few months, I simply lost interest in it. So to rekindle an old flame, I pulled out one of my best leopard print pieces – which is super soft and fits so well, by the way – and wore it out. I’m not sure how I feel about leopard print anymore but I think I’m going to keep this particular dress in my closet just in case I end up loving it again.

Outfit by Dress Like A Pirate and Iron Fist
Choker: The Crypt of Curiosities
Top: Dress Like a Pirate
Skirt: Iron Fist Clothing
Shoes: Forever 21

So I really loved this outfit and wearing some of my favourite pieces in a style which I’m wearing a lot of at the moment. Y’all probably know I have a tonne of lipstick and though it’s all been worn, a lot of it doesn’t get as used as some others, so I decided to pull out “Saddle” by Lime Crime, which was more brown than I remembered. It’s not my favourite lip colour but wearing it wasn’t a terrible experience. (This is how you know when you have a beauty/fashion blog – when wearing a lipstick is called “an experience.”)

I’m actually worried about what to do with my lipstick. My collection is growing so much that even if I wear lipstick once a day, to wear all the shades I have takes almost a year, but obviously cosmetics are not the greatest hand-me-downs. I’m not sure what I’ll be doing with all the lesser-used shades.

I spent so much money on Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales but I also went back to work this week so that’s a huge bonus. I really hope to be sharing some more outfits and lipsticks with you soon, and I also have some new products that I’d like to review. Until next week!
