A Closeted Goth Girl Trying to Make it in the Professional World

Wardrobe Workhorse

Earlier this fall, I added a very comfortable khaki green skirt to my wardrobe. I found it while I was grocery shopping and got distracted by the clothing department. It was inexpensive and has become a real workhorse in my wardrobe; it pairs easily with a lot of my black tops and it can be worn with tights for colder weather and on its own for warmer days. I have worn it to run casual errands/for casual outings, to work, and with some of my alternative accessories as well. I love having pieces that I can wear throughout the seasons and style in different ways! 

THE EQUIPMENT

Catrice Yellow Submagreen palette, UD 24/7 Liners in Mildew and Stash, MAC Firm Form Lipstick, Estee Lauder Cyber Eyes in Cyber Green.

THE OUTFIT


Necklace: From the local goth store
Top: H&M
Skirt: Joe Fresh
Boots: Steve Madden

For the above outfit I was trying to keep things casual as I had various boring adult errands to run. I even wore my "fast shoes" as I call them......they are one of VERY FEW flat shoes that I will wear. However, my gear necklace caught my eye and then I decided I needed some weird lipstick.....why the hell not?  YOLO, as people way younger than me would say.

MORE EQUIPMENT

Cuff that my mother gave to me, Buxom Big and Healthy Lip Crayon in Brooklyn, earrings that I made, Alexis Bittar Liquid Spear necklace.
'NOTHER OUTFIT


Top: DKNY
Boots: Le Chateau

This outfit makes me look like at LEAST a semi-functional adult so it could be worn to work. It also works well for going out for lunch or coffee. I like to have outfits in which all my metals, including those in my shoes, match. This outfit has a gunmetal theme.

  2. I have a few skirts that fall into the "work horse" category. They're all so easy to wear, wash well, and are versatile for more casual teaching days or big professional conferences. AND they're all "travel knit" so they pack without wrinkling and easy to wash in a hotel room sink if need be. :)

    I love the "military" feel of the skirt, perhaps it's the color?

  3. That skirt sure looks really comfy! :) And I am kicking my own ass for not buying the Firm form lipstick now that I see how good it looks on. D:

  4. OMG, I thought I was the only one who had to have all my metals match, LOL. For that reason, my engagement ring has both yellow and white gold/palladium in it, so that I am usually good on whatever else I war :P
