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

Monday, April 10, 2017


For as long as I can remember, I have always strongly disliked the colour brown. Lately, for some reason, I have started to see its appeal and have been adding some brown to my wardrobe and makeup. Today's outfits feature a neat dress that I found on a clearance rack. I was surprised that it was so inexpensive since the fabric has a nice weight and feel to it.....turns out it is made of something called Tencel which comes from wood pulp or something like that. When I looked up the clothing company's website, I saw that the dress also comes in black......I feel like I should prefer the black one but I am strangely attracted to the colour of this dress. It is such a neat colour of brown; it also looks different depending on how the light hits it. Sometimes it has a bit of a grey or green undertone, sometimes there is a bit of an orange-ish cast to it. It is hard to explain unless you see it in person but I think it is really cool.

Are you a fan of brown?


  1. Browns and oranges have no place in my wardrobe, except for lipsticks - I'm really, really fond of dark brown lips <3

  2. I really like a true, deep chocolate brown, especially when paired with black, soft pink, or deep red. I also like the brown-coppery shades for lipsticks and eyeshadow.

  3. Never thought about brown for lips... Don't know why! I love love your necklaces. I wear a lot of brown myself since that's half my hair color these days
