Top (outer): Forever 21+
Top (under) Mrs. Spookshow's Designs
Skirt: Mrs. Spookshow's Designs
So since it's a rainy day and I'll be primarily inside at the computer, I figured there's no reason not to dress up a bit. I've been wanting to give this skirt another go, as I'm not really too happy with the last outfit I paired it with (here). I think the gold top details and zipper details on the skirt was a great concept, but there's something about the looseness of the top with this skirt that just feels a bit off. So anyways, here's round two.
Ah, yeah, you may have noticed something different about the photo above. Why yes, thank you, I have lost a little weight, but that's not it. I know my pink nails are awesome, but nope, that isn't it either. Okay, okay, so I'm sure you've noticed that I seem to have been assaulted by the Headless Horseman, ha. No worries though, my head is still intact.
Anyhow, the first (headless) photo is a bit of foreshadowing to a topic I'm going to address soon on the blog here .... confidence. So often, when we see men wearing skirts or dresses on the internet, the faces are always cropped out of the photos. There's a lot of reasons why (and that's a topic for said other post), but I wanted to replicate that here because I was curious on if that changes how a look is perceived. I'm curious to know any thoughts you may have on that below!
I've gone on a while already without talking about this outfit, so here goes. I thought perhaps the outer top over the red undershirt would work well with the red scroll pattern of the skirt. It's an interesting idea, and I'm always one for trying things out and seeing how they work. I think it's a pretty cool look, but I often feel quite good about my outfits the day off, and there's a certain perspective that comments & a few days of simmer down time can only provide, so who knows, haha.
Here we go with some shoe shots! I really like these shoes, but I don't wear them very often. I actually have another pair of them in a different size (12w) that I've been meaning to put up for sale on eBay, but I haven't gotten around to it yet.
I wish these pictures had turned out a bit better, but the lighting situation outside just isn't great, so it's hard to get a great photo of darker colors. Ah, well.
I found myself just playing around with the camera and trying some different shots, and this was one that I thought turned out pretty cool, haha. Taking off (or putting on) my shoes, and just generally seeing how the camera acts in different lighting situations.
That's all for today. I will be back very soon (weather permitting) with more OOTDs. As I mentioned in my last OOTD I went to a party yesterday but unfortunately I didn't take pictures before I went and I wound up getting covered in dog hair (bleh), so I'll have to post that look once I wash those clothes, ha. See you soon!
