I thought I'd try a look with shorts today. Shocking, perhaps, but I wanted to show you guys that I think I can rock a pair of shorts freestyle as well. No worries, I'm still a skirt boy, but it's nice to mix it up every once and awhile. I've always liked the shorts, tights, heels look on girls, so I figured why not try it myself. I think it works, but I also feel the abundance of cool accessories is what's selling it here for me.
I like to cut up my tees. Mrs. Spookshow doesn't love it so much, but I think it just appeals to a goth / punk diy side of myself. Unfortunately, I'm fairly terrible with a pair of scissors (as I'm one of those devilish lefties), so I often just wind up ruining a good shirt. I'm trying to get better with cutting fabric, however, and so this shirt was the result of my practice. Actually, this is the best cut up shirt I've managed to do. In fact, when Mrs. Spookshow saw it she asked where I bought it! I felt that was pretty high praise, actually, and she was surprised to find out that it was just a $3.00 men's shirt that I accidentally bought a few sizes too big.
The vest is killer, as always. I love it, and I'm sad that I probably won't be able to wear it for much longer, as it's starting to heat up here in Florida. I've never been one to really change my style based on the seasons, but sometimes the heat does get too killer for my style. To be honest, I kinda dread the summer months, because I just have so much trouble finding cool stuff to wear in the weather.
Looking through my folder of OOTDs, I was very surprised to find that I haven't really shown these booties much. Despite that, I really like them, so here they are! I really enjoy the studs, and think they really compliment this outfit very well. Rockin!
