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!

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: Is it Autumn Yet?

I’m so ready for it to be fall. The weather is absolutely dreadful and one of my jobs is outdoors, which makes it all the worse. I’m so ready for nice weather, Halloween products, and the thrill of everything autumn, aren’t you?

Anyway, here are some OOTDs. It has cooled down a little bit so I wasn’t wearing just shorts this time around!

Top by Iron Fist
Top: Iron Fist

When I bought this shirt, I was a bit hesitant about whether or not I’d be wearing it. But now, I wear it all the time! I’d really like to see more prints like this in future clothing. I love the simple but creepy black and white skeletal hand print.

Dress by Moonmaiden Gothic

Dragon Necklace by Dracula Clothing
Dress: Moonmaiden Gothic
Necklace: Dracula Clothing

This outfit was really simple to put together but fishnets and a statement necklace add a lot. I personally love this necklace and it’s one of my favourites. The shoes I got several years ago, I forget from where, but I chose them because they’re cute but I never wear them. Sometimes it’s nice to wear something that seldom gets pulled out of the closet, you know?

I hope all of you have a wonderful week!
