OK AN IMPORTANT ADULTHOOD TIP IS THAT YOU NEVER GET TOO OLD TO PRETEND YOU ARE A DRAGON WHEN IT’S COLD AND YOU CAN SEE YOUR BREATH I AM FIRE I AM DEATH I HAVE A 401K PLAN AND MANAGE MY FIBER INTAKE MY CLAWS ARE SPEARS MY WINGS ARE A HURRICANE
I got a kick out of this one because I’ve noticed fashion bloggers writing about being inspired by non-clothing things, like the colors in a fading brick wall with poster debris on it or something, and that had never happened to me, and then sometime this past year at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts I saw some tchotchke in the gift shop that had heather grey and bright orange and went, “Ooooh.” So that finally happened.
I also like it because I have picked up from some blogger or other the idea of using socks as a pop of color over your boots. Always fun to have another slot for color.
Orange tee—Mossimo, thrifted
Grey heather shirt—Old Navy, eBay
Grey heather tights—Target?
Orange socks—Sock Dreams, bought for post-apocalyptic Velma cosplay
Black slouch boots—Shoe Show. So very cheap. Not leather. Have lasted a surprisingly long time.
Grey headband you can’t really see—knit by me
Awesome earrings—from my aunt for Christmas
How I know I am back at my childhood home. (In case you can’t read it in the photo, this canister is officially labeled “GREASE.”)
