OOTD 95 & A Few Announcements

So, I've been away for a little while. First, I'd like to say thank you to everyone who emailed or messaged me to make sure I was okay; I appreciate it. As I've said before here on the blog, September & October are very busy months for me, as I work doing makeup for a local haunted attraction. Late nights and a weird sleeping schedule means I just don't manage to make many posts here. Sorry for that! I'm back now, though!

Actually, now seems like the perfect time to dive right into the announcement I teased yesterday on Twitter (you do follow me on Twitter right?). I've been giving it a lot of thought, and in the interest of making this blog both more entertaining & informative, as well as just getting it "out there" more, I want to try to update a lot more often. No really, like, a lot more often. You see, for the past few years I've really wanted to participate in the Dressember event, but for varying reasons I've just never managed to join in on the fun. While I'm still probably not going to be posting to any Dressember groups and such, what I am going to do is take the idea and run with it a bit here on the blog. From today, and leading all the way through my "blogiversary" on March 2nd, I will be doing daily outfit posts here on HBD. Yep, you read that right. I'm going to do my best to post every single day from now through February! Oh my, what have I gotten myself in to.

So, with that out of the way, let's talk a bit about this outfit. As I was laying in bed last night thinking about writing this post and what I was going to wear for my triumphant return, this is the outfit that gradually coalesced in my mind's eye, and I'm super happy with it! I mean, who doesn't love skulls, pleated skirts, and gold studs? 

I wanna take a moment to gush about how much I love these shoes. They are just so awesome! While I do wear a lot of heels here on the blog, I actually do have a soft spot for cute but comfortable flats. I've been wanting a pair of canvas shoes for a while now, and actually my original intention was to get a white pair and either paint or dye them myself. I'll still probably do that, but the print on this pair was just too awesome to pass up. I gotta say, I really love them. I was really taken aback by how comfortable they turned out to be, as apparently a size 11 from Torrid is my exact size. Anyhow, yeah, totally crushing on these shoes.

That's all for this one, folks. I'll be back tomorrow with another outfit, so seeya then!

  1. welcome back – and good luck with your blog marathon :)
    my ambition is merely to try and post in every calendar month – I can just about manage that much

    1. Thanks! :D

      I know what you mean, haha. It's going to be a challenge, but I think I can manage it. I predict the photo to text ratio here will likely shift a bit more towards the photo side, though.

  2. I work at a haunted attraction too! Here's to fashion-blogging haunters. :D
