Slipknot









Gold Trousers || Thrifted
Slipknot Top || Hand-me-down
Doc Martens || Dr. Martens
Lava Rock Bracelet || Karma and Luck

Mostly, I busted out this muscle tank because it's deliciously faded and the splashes of maroon matched my docs perfectly. I'm playing Snuff now and reminiscing on all the days I spent head banging to Slipknot's heavier songs. Years ago, I would've scoffed at the idea of wearing trousers, but now I sometimes prefer them over jeans. These beaded trousers jazz things up and would also pair nicely with a crop top. I wish I would've downsized on my Mary Jane's since they're quite spacious. Regardless, I appreciate the adorable reinvented take on the schoolgirl classic. In the warmer months, I often decorate my wrists with beaded bracelets to get me in that free spirit mood. The closest bracelet to my hand is fish vertebrae, the middle one is lava rock, and the last one is yak bone from Nepal.

Black Sails













Silky Bustier | Velvet Skirt | Leather Belt | Moto Boots || Thrifted
Sterling Silver Pendant || Garage Sale

With pirate fest nearing, I decided to use pieces that were already in my wardrobe. My outfit isn't too costumey, so it can easily translate to everyday wear. It was a real luxury to have on a bustier that fit my chest properly. The ruffles on my skirt helped add volume and a bit of drama. This belt lent a pirate vibe and kept my skirt in place. Being the explorer that I am, I stopped into Desert Industries afterwards. I came across this oversize plaid blazer that makes me think of Christmas and Scottish Terrier's.

Florals













Floral Dress | Lace-Up Shoes || Thrifted
Velvet Scrunchie || Etsy
Velvet Purse|| Etsy

Floral dresses require hardly a thought and feel so spring appropriate. Being in tune with the season always help elevate my mood. These tennis shoes were specifically for my job, but standing hours in them proved to be unpleasant. I'm glad I incorporated them in here since they gave off a laid back vibe. I'd been dying to style this gothic evening bag. Piper, a talented seller on Etsy, creates such magical bags and backpacks. They're perfect for a festival lover or a Gypsy goddess.

Basic











Cropped Cardigan {DIY} | Mom Jeans | Mini Handbag | Mary Janes || Thrifted

I'd been noticing that cropped cardigans were slowly becoming a thing. Not only does it look cute, but it's perfect for transitioning into spring. I kept this look very basic with the 90's in mind. The dainty flowers on my satin bag totally remind me of clothing I wore in the 2000's. Also, I chopped off most of my hair and I'm surprisingly not regretting it.

Hustler













Checked Blazer | Wrangler Jeans | Leather Boots | Mini Handbag || Thrifted
Hustler T-Shirt || Prize
Statement Earrings || Gift / Etsy

This look had me feeling like such a proper fashion blogger. Well, almost! I had to throw in this wild card and feature this t-shirt that I got from the strip club. The dj was walking around encouraging people to clap for the talented ladies. Surprisingly, I was the only one clapping, so he rewarded me with the free t-shirt. It seriously made my birthday night so much better. My best friend gifted me these artsy face earrings and of course I was itching to style them. They're the perfect no-fuss pieces to jazz up any simple outfit. Thanks, Chayo! I'm so thrilled that blazers have been everywhere. I particularly like the boxy fit of this one and how it allowed me to tie in these chocolate boots. It's funny, my boyfriend thought these worn in jeans belonged to him. That's reasonable since I found them in the men's section at Salvation Army.

Schoolgirl











Izod Sweater | Pleated Skirt | Leather Satchel | Platforms || Thrifted
Ruffle Socks || Topshop

There's various schoolgirl outfits and combinations to play with. I feel that my v-neck sweater lends off a sailor vibe, but luckily the trimming isn't navy blue. The sweater's fabric is very tightly woven and is comfortable against the skin. I added this tan satchel for a vintage flair and I find the swing clasp so satisfying. A week ago, I went to the cinema to see an anime called Mary and the Witch's Flower. The main character, Mary Smith, wears an adorable schoolgirl outfit. I figured I'd follow suit and get in the spirit of things.

Tripping













Fishnet Top | Tripp Dress || Thrifted
Sterling Silver Necklace || Garage Sale
Demonia Boots || Sinister Soles

There's no denying that I was in a goth wearing mood, but now I'm noticing a gothic lolita influence.
That's perfectly fine since I'm a huge fan of that fashion scene. It's so dark and dramatic : ) Years ago, I bought these Demonia boots after seeing a model, Felice Fawn, in a pair. I just remember her looking so tough in her boots while walking her rottweiler. My friends are wearing mostly thrifted items, except for the jacket is from Nasty Gal and the fishnet tights are from Walgreens.
