Doge & Croquet

black tank top, vintage navy blue corduroy skirt

Wearing black and navy together like it ain't no thang.




It's easy to break a "fashion rule" that few people worry about these days, but I shall celebrate my small victories! Hooray for me!

I wore this outfit on a date with X. We went to the inaugural night of Splatter Cinema at Impact Theatre and watched Spider Baby, which was ridiculous but still quite creepy. In unrelated cult movie news, this illustration is amazing:



Encountered on Dribbble (which I am newly obsessed with) but there are more details on TumblrHeathers is an excellent film--I'm not just saying that due to my enduring affection for Winona Ryder--and I wish I could see the musical!

Red nails inspired by The Painted Rogue. ZEBRA RING! Necklace from Aspen Tree Vintage. As much as I loved my lipstick, it ended up being inconvenient because I couldn't give X a proper goodbye kiss. Well, I could have, but I didn't want to get his mustache all smeary. I don't think he would have been thrilled with that.

This silly picture is silly, which I like, and it also shows how the skirt moves. I very much enjoy the cut of this piece. It was a giveaway prize from Bon Marche Couture (shop here) and has become a favorite element of my wardrobe.

  7. This skirt is incredible. I want it in my life.

    Ok. Is Heathers actually a good film? Or is it only good in the way things are good when one is in a teen-rom-com kind of mood?

    1. Hmm. . . I'd have to watch it again with that in mind to answer properly. I guess it's good in a Mean Girls kinda way.
