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.

Dress: Workhall (local)

Do you have any copper jewelry?

The Track Shirt

  OH MY GOD, February is FINALLY OVER, THANK GOD. Does February always seem like the worst month ever or is it just me??? Thankfully, I had a break from work a few weeks ago.......I would have loved to travel somewhere but alas, I had a staycation. One of my cats requires daily medication and I do not have anyone who can successfully medicate him in my absence. 

James, being a cat, is quite indifferent to the fact that he is ruining my freedom by not behaving for the cat sitter.

No Fucks Given
Earlier in the season, I mentioned I was trying to restrain myself from finding a pair of track pants. It turns out that I found something even more ridiculous to wear......a TRACK SHIRT. Yes, my friends, it has snap buttons all the way up the sleeves just like a good old pair of track pants.  Perhaps one day I will develop good taste in clothing. 

THE EQUIPMENT

Good old MAC Violetta, Justine Clenquet earrings, ring made by me.
