Brown and Blue

We are finally getting some decent weather around here! I am looking forward to planning my spring outfits! On a less happy note, I am sorry to see so many people shutting down their blogs......I will miss reading about them.

Can't Think of A Creative Title

Holy crap, it's April already! The weather still sucks and I continue to complain. I also continue to incorporate fishnets into most of my outfits even though I am sure that trend is dead by now.  I would really like to wear my spring coats sometime this year.......also, the snow can f*** off any day now.

THE EQUIPMENT

NARS Larger than Life Lipgloss in Norma, AFI pin, Martha Rotten earrings.

In the Spirit of Maximalism

One of the big F/W trends for 2017 was MAXIMALISM and I couldn't help but take notice. I LOVED the overdone looks; there were patterns and prints, colour clashing, and accessories galore. I REALLY wanted to create a completely off-the-wall nut-bar outfit to wear this season but couldn't quite figure out how to pull it off. I decided to take inspiration from the trend and try out some pattern mixing for something more practical and wearable. (PRACTICAL AND WEARABLE.......WHAT HAVE I BECOME?!?!) I wore my good old floral print velvet dress with leopard print shoes.....hardly daring but you have to look semi-appropriate sometimes when you're a grown-ass woman.....*sigh*

THE EQUIPMENT

Clutch: Eggskin Lab, Earrings: Jamie Spinello

SHOE



Toned-down pattern mixing FTY (for the yawwwwwn). I was hoping this would have a bit more IMPACT. 

What patterns have you mixed?

Outerwear Outfit

Where I live, it is COLD outside for many months of the year. Therefore, I have been making an effort to include my outerwear pieces in my outfit rather than just throwing them on over my clothes. For today's outfit, I wore all black but used different textures to keep things interesting. My cotton top had long sleeves which kept my hands sort of warm; the leather jacket contrasted nicely with my pvc and lace skirt. I wore tights, legwarmers, and a scarf for extra warmth; the scarf also added a bit of colour. For accessories, I wore a brooch on my scarf, a delicate earring in one ear, and a vintage ring. 

THE EQUIPMENT

Ring: Vintage, I believe it was an older relative's; Earring: Free People; Brooch: from an old shirt that got wrecked; MAC Rebel to match my hair.

THE OUTFIT


Top: Noctex
PVC and Lace Skirt: Made by my friend
Legwarmers: Old American Apparel from like, 10 years ago
Leather Jacket: Vintage

FULL DISCLOSURE: Despite my efforts at layering I still froze to death wearing this. 

Who else is ready for some spring weather?

Colour Clash

Today's outfit was worn for performing boring adult responsibilities. I tried to look somewhat put together while still remaining comfortable. Fishnets and interesting shoes were worn to look like some f**k's were given. My plan was to match my lipstick, skirt, and scarf; turns out that these things matched a lot better in my head. The scarf clashed quite badly with the colour of the skirt but I decided to just roll with it and pretend I was making a fashion statement. 

THE EQUIPMENT

Wined lipstick by Hail Cosmetics

THE OUTFIT


Velvet Crop Top and Skirt: Workhall (local)
Leather Jacket: Vintage
Scarf: DOES NOT MATCH MY SKIRT NOR MY LIPSTICK ARGH!

Do you like clashing colours or are you a matchy-matchy kind of person?

Copper

This winter, I have been experimenting with copper metal accessories; I got a really neat set of earrings and a necklace for Xmas. Also, I am enrolled in another silversmithing class this spring and I am planning to make some copper pieces.  One thing that I have discovered is that copper does not really play well with my skin tone; the earrings aren't so bad but I think the necklace does not look particularly flattering. Next time I wear it, I will put it on over a black shirt with a higher neckline.

THE EQUIPMENT 

BITE Beauty Prismatic Pearl Creme Lipgloss in Bronze Pearl, Necklace and Earrings: Jamie Spinello.
