I've been in a bit of a fashion funk recently, which is partially the reason for my absence. Do you ever just have a handful of days where you don't really feel like wearing anything special that suddenly just sort of sticks you in a fashion rut? That's where I've been over the past few weeks, but today I decided to break that spell with this outfit. Tuesday's have kinda become the official game night at the Spookshow residence, where we have friends over to play board games (and soon, a Star Wars tabletop RPG I'm running...), so it's always a great opportunity to really put some effort into my dress. Ironically, this dress is pretty effortless, but whatever, haha.
I'm sure I've said this before on the blog, but I've kinda become obsessed with skater dresses. They are just so easy and comfortable to wear, and I think they are a lot of fun. I bought this dress at Macy's right around my birthday, and since I knew it would make me feel great to wear I've just sorta been saving it for a sartorially rainy day, so to speak. Purple and black skater dress to the rescue!
One of my favorite things about skater dresses are the nice full skirts they have. It's kinda hard to describe if you've never experienced it, but having a lot of fabric in the skirt to swish around as you move is a lot of fun, not to mention very comfortable. I always love photos like the one above when I see then, so I decided to have some fun and take one of my own, haha.
This picture really shows of the length of the skirt (whoa, short, haha!) and these amazing tights! It's also the obligatory shoe photo, although I've worn these shoes in a lot of OOTDs here and sadly they're actually getting a bit worn out. I feel like this outfit would probably be KILLER with my pair of satin black high heels, but that will have to wait for next time, haha. I do want to take a moment and give a proper shout out to these Hudson City cover 40 denier opaque tights, because they are pretty amazing. Living in Florida I don't exactly get to wear opaque tights very often, but thus far of all the black tights I've tried these give the best look by far.
Anyhow, fun was had by all tonight! It was great to see our friends, and even though we all got eaten by zombies in the game it was still a blast. I think I've managed to pull myself out of the fashion funk, so expect a lot more from me very soon! Next post I've got some great products from SockDreams.com to review (spoilers: they're awesome!), so look for that in the next day or so! As always, please feel free to leave your comments below!
