Outfit of the Day 130

 Dress: SimplyBe | Tights: Donatellas | Shoes: Target

It's New Year's Eve, and here's my outfit! Mrs. Spookshow and I had a small party with some of our closest friends wherein we set off obnoxious fireworks and played cool board games. It was a lot of fun!

It seems as if this is one of my go to December dresses, as the last time I wore it here on the blog was also in December, linked here. Funnily enough, I also wore the same shoes. I guess I find this dress / shoe combo to be just perfect for showcasing an awesome pair of tights. Last time I wore this dress I was also really into playing around with wigs, so it's fun to see it again in my natural form (beware, though, this isn't even my FINAL FORM!).

I decided to pose in front of my board game collection, both because it seemed fitting given the theme of the party and because it was already dark outside. I got a video lighting set for Christmas, so I was trying those out here. I think it turned out pretty good. Oh yeah, so I'm totally starting a YouTube channel soon. It's called Dresses & Dragons, and you should go follow that here. Expect all sorts of gaming, cosplay, and fashion content from this spooky boy in a dress!

Finally, it's another pair of awesome print tights from Donatellas! I love that they've been kind enough to gift me with all sorts of excellent tights to show here on the blog, and the response from you all has been great! I'm really glad we've found such a rad outlet for tights in plus sizes, and I highly recommend that you go check out and get yourself a few pairs of cool tights!

Keep rockin', and have an awesome new year!

Outfit of the Day 129

Jacket, top, belt, & skirt: Forever 21 | Tights: Donatellas | Shoes: Payless

These tights, guys! Wow. What can I even say? They are so awesome! This is one of those outfits that just sorta happened, as I was thinking about what to pair with these tights all of these pieces called to me and I listened. I don't think I've ever worn this jacket on the blog before. I had a lot of fun posing with it, haha.

These tights were gifted to me by, as I've talked to the owner several times and she thought I would like them. I totally do! I'm really glad that Donatella reached out to me, because it's been so great to find such a good shop for plus size tights. I really love the selection of awesome print tights that they carry, and if you love tights like I do I definitely recommend checking them out!

Outfit of the Day 128

Top: Modcloth | Skirt: Forever 21 | Tights: Wolford | Shoes: Target

Tonight I went to a holiday party with Mrs. Spookshow, and this is what I wore. It was really fun to see my friends, and good times were had by all. Mrs Spookshow and I decided to color coordinate our outfits (DORK ALERT), so purple and black was the theme of the day. We took a family photo together, so here's that ...

Outfit of the Day 127

Top & ring: Modcloth | Skirt: Forever 21 | Tights: We Love Colors | Shoes: Torrid

Got in this top (and the awesome unicorn ring!) from Modcloth today and couldn’t resist immediately putting together this outfit. I’ve had these skull studded shoes for a long while now, but they’ve never seemed right with an outfit …. until today! And yeah, I’m still not over galaxy prints or skater skirts, haha.

Outfit of the Day 126

Top & dress: Forever 21 | Shoes: gifted

I picked up this dress a few months ago and just never got around to posting it. It's really more of a summer dress, but I'm cheating a bit cuz Florida. It is actually a little chilly today, though, so I decided to pair this top underneath for a little warmth. My mom saw these shoes in a shop and thought I'd like them (and I do) so she bought them for me. They are really working here I think.

OOTD Remix: Galaxy Print Dress

Dress: Modcloth | Shoes: Sanita via Amazon

So I totally know this dress has been featured on the blog a few times now, but I've got a few things I want to say (write?) this morning and photos are cool, so, you know, here it is. I've gone back through the blog and found the other posts where I'm wearing this dress, just in case you'd like to read more about it (and see how I styled it differently), so check that out here and here.

Recently I had the thought that I really don't dress up nice as much as I'd like to, and that's a damn shame. I post a lot of outfits here, but in reality I usually frump it up around the house if I'm being honest. We're not doing that anymore, though! Yesterday I went through a lot of my dresser drawers and cleaned out a lot of stuff, and as part of that I also took my uninteresting "around the house" clothes and banished them to the deepest, darkest drawer I could find. I'll still need them for working in the shop and such, but I've got a closet full of awesome and it's time to take advantage of that! It's really not that hard to put on a cute dress in the morning, so that's what's happening now.


You can find this over in the Social Media tab at the top of the blog, but I really wanted to bring attention to it here on the main page... did you know I have an Instagram account? I post a lot of random stuff from my life there, a lot of it nerdy, but I try to make sure I post fashion stuff there as well. If you are at all interested in taking a closer look into my life, head over there and follow me. It will be fun.

I'm also making a YouTube channel, but that's a secret so shhh. Look for more about that very soon!

Outfit of the Day 125

Bowtie: gifted | Top: Forever 21 | Jumper: Modcloth | Tights: We Love Colors | Shoes: Torrid

Bowties, jumpers, and petticoats, oh my!

Mrs. Spookshow bought me this bowtie as a Xmas gift last year, and said she was interested to see how I would use it on the blog. Sorry, love, I know it's taken me a little while, but here it is, haha. I was interested in this jumper dress when it first hit Modcloth, but I didn't pick it up until I saw it on clearance. It's pretty fun, so I'm glad I got it. I've been meaning to show it here on a blog for a little bit now, but since I'm currently neck deep in a Halloween makeup, it seemed particularly fitting (what with the paint spatter print and all, you know).

Outfit of the Day 124

Hat: Domino Dollhouse | Jacket: Torrid | Dress: City Chic | Tights: We Love Colors | Boots: Ashley Stewart

Sorry that I've been away for so long, but a combination of hot weather and it being my busy season meant I had to be away for a while. I wasn't sure if I'd manage to update the blog before November, but I wore this cute outfit to work last night and wanted to show it here on the blog. 

I didn't manage to take photos for this ootd before I left for work, so I had a brief photo shoot at 4:00 am when I got home, which means you get to see my board game collection in the background, haha. I'm so glad it's finally cooling off here in Florida; I was really getting tired of the heat.

Outfit of the Day 123

Sunglasses, Dress, & Purse: Forever 21+ | Darth Vader Ring: gifted | Pantyhose: Wolford | Shoes: Payless

Yesterday evening I had an annual work meeting to attend, and this is what I wore. I suppose it's a bit of a remix of this OOTD, though this time around I decided to stick with black and white more and only use my accessories for color pops. I got a lot of compliments from coworkers, and even a few from people I didn't know while walking to my car afterwards. As you may recall from my OOTD post about last year's meeting, I did have a negative reaction directed at me that time, so it was nice to not have that happen this year.

I really like this purse that I just got. Even though I wear skirts and dresses a lot, I really don't have very many purses, and I tend to not carry one anyways (as I just let Mrs. Spookshow carry my I.D. and such in hers). I'm trying to change that, though, since I'll soon be having to go out alone a lot more often than I have in the past. I'm really happy with the size of this purse, anyways, as I really don't need to carry much more than my wallet, keys, phone, pepper spray, and a few pens.  

Darth Vader ring, y'all. Click that ring detail picture up there and check it out, haha!

That's all for this one, everyone. See you soon for another new OOTD, okay?

Outfit of the Day 122

Sunglasses: Domino Dollhouse | Top: Evans | Skirt: ASOS Curve | Tights: Donatellas | Shoes: MIA

Just like in my last OOTD post, here's another outfit put together around an awesome pair of tights, this time the candy heart print tights from Donatella's! These tights are excellent, and I really can't say how thrilled I am to have found a great source for cute tights in plus sizes! These tights have the same great fit and quality of the other tights I got from Donatella, and I'm looking forward to trying out even more fun patterns and prints from them.

One thing I'm really digging about this outfit (besides the totally cute tights) is the X's and O's in the look via the belt, shoes, and sunglasses. It's just a bit of a fun little thing to tie in with the heart print, mostly because I love you all. Keep rockin'! xoxo<3
