Goth Sunflowers

all-black outfit, tall black sunflowers

My mom planted some gigantic purplish sunflowers. Well, they probably didn't start out gigantic. But they've definitely gotten that way. It's like traipsing around in Wonderland.

Today's outfit consisted of a thrifted t-shirt and yoga pants, which suited my itinerary of pet-related activities. I drove my dog to the vet--he snorted a foxtail into his nose and it was making him really uncomfortable. The vet examined a few other things, with the upshot that my poor little dog had to get shaved. Now he looks appalling. Then I went and fed the cat that I've been watching while her owners are on vacation, and took Button the neighbor's dog for a brisk walk.

Unfortunately, what I didn't consider beforehand is just how well animal hair shows up on black clothes. But I managed to brush most of it away prior to photo-taking. Luckily, having tea with the Queen wasn't on the agenda. My mom always used to scold me that I should cultivate good manners in case the Queen of England ever asked me to tea. I'm still waiting!

This shirt originally came from American Apparel, a company that I may be willing to buy from in the future, if they continue making positive changes like firing their scummy CEO. I'm not sure exactly what "Dirty Sweet" is supposed to mean, but it's vague enough that I don't feel dirty wearing it... or sweet, for that matter.

If you've got a hankering for more pictures of sunflowers, I posted several on Tumblr! Also check out Leah Wise wearing a sunflower dress that I obviously want to steal.

  1. Those sunflowers are incredible! I've never seen dark sunflowers before. 90% of the time I'm lounging around I wear your exact outfit - just some yoga pants and a t-shirt.

    Hope your dog is okay now!

  2. Those sunflowers are total rogue sunflowers. Just saying. ;-)

    I love how this outfit is such a great contrast in both colour and tone to the previous one!

  4. Wow, you're not kidding about the giganticness of those sunflowers! Out of curiosity, how tall are you? Wondering for gigantic sunflower reference.

  5. These sunflowers are INCREDIBLE. They are my favorite flower, but I didn't know they came in purple too hehe.

    I hope your dog is ok. Why must they have no sense of self-preservation? I have a brown lab who is always getting himself hurt, simply because he's silly.

    1. I know, right? It astounds me that canines ever survived in the wild.
