Tool

















Oversized Coat | Tool T-Shirt {DIY} | Trousers | Loafers | Guess Handbag | Brooch || Thrifted
Sterling Silver Onyx Ring || Doty's Originals
Slouchy Beanie || Hot Topic
Fishnet Tights || Express

For awhile, I kept finding so many Tool shirts at the thrift store. Seriously, who's giving their Tool shirts away? Their songs are so penetrating and I'd have to say Schism is my favorite. Out of all the coats at Savers, this one really spoke to me the most. The length kept me extra toasty and the combination of brown and black made it easy to pair with darker pieces. In the colder months, I tend to gravitate more towards menswear. I added this floral brooch and mini handbag to balance out the masculinity.

Harvest















Turtleneck | Vest | Mini Skirt | Mini Handbag | Book | Platform Shoes || Thrifted
Sterling Silver Necklace || Garage Sale
Sterling Silver Onyx Ring || Doty's Originals
Sterling Silver Garnet Ring || Regal Rose

I'm hoping that those of you who celebrate Thanksgiving had a marvelous time. It's been ages since I've worn a tailored vest. I find them quite tricky to style. Although, I'm glad I didn't pass on this festive piece since it got me in the spirit. Pilgrim hats are part of the fun, so I brought out these shoes with buckle details to pay homage. This statement necklace has a unique and bewitching design that I can't get over. My mom kindly haggled down the price for me when we attended the Great Garage & Antique Sale.  Not only does this velvet book make an amazing prop, but it's a magical read as well.  The Secret Garden is one of my most beloved childhood stories and films.

Wizard

Sterling Silver Onyx Ring | Doty's Originals
Vintage JJ Wizard Brooch | Etsy

Wizards are magical deep thinkers. Just looking at this brooch fills me with tremendous joy and positivity. Originally, I planned on wearing this brooch on the lapel of my blazer, but the weather didn't call for outerwear. I've never attached a brooch to a top in this way, but it's nice to step outside the box. Err, I badly need to find a hack that helps ensure that the fabric of the turtleneck stays put. Gucci loafers are huge right now, but the price makes me twitch. These loafers have a similar hardware and are proving to be a quality staple in my wardrobe. Floral socks are feminine and add an androgynous factor when paired with masculine loafers.

Paisley















Maxi Dress | Velvet Purse | Doc Martens || Thrifted
Wool Beret || Free People
Labradorite Necklace || Doty's Originals
Fishnet Socks || Gift

Finally, fall is in full swing : ) Paisley is a timeless pattern that feels so festive during the season. The dress' abalone buttons are non-functioning, but I appreciate the fuss free design. I was in a 90's channeling mood so I wore my beret with micro braids and a choker. Fishnet socks are dynamite when you can't be bothered with tights. These babies helped me achieve a dark grungy factor that added volume to my outfit.

Dominatrix Bunny











Grommet Choker | Patent Leather Boots | Maxi Cardigan || Thrifted
Bunny Ears || Spirit Halloween
Sterling Silver Spider Earrings || Etsy
Cobalt Blue Wig | PVC Skirt | Whip || The Love Store

Halloween is my favorite holiday. but I never prepare properly. I always decide on a costume the last second and end up going on wild goose chases looking for the right pieces. Wild Daze released her Halloween Lookbook that had me inspired to dress up. Her seductive dominatrix bunny costume involved a cheeky PVC bodysuit, long gray wig, and white satin gloves. At first, I toyed with the idea of buying a leather harness from Etsy, but the one I adored would've taken three weeks to ship from Russia. My grommet belt turned collar was an easy diy that felt up-to-date. It's no secret that I'm not big on color, but this electrifying blue had me shook. This wig is made of the silkiest human hair and I trimmed the bangs for a more customized look. I had an inkling that The Love Store would have PVC clothing, but I was taken aback by this edgy crisscross skirt. Spiders are fabulously spooky so these oversized post earrings were a must.

Secondhand Style Steal {Oanhdaqueen}











Shimmery Top | Denim Skirt | Sunnies | Chunky Necklace | D-Ring Belt
| Leather Backpack || Thrifted
Doc Martens || Journey's

On this particular sunny day, I was yearning to dress for fall. Thus, I was feeling a tad bit uninspired. I scrolled through my Instagram saves and decided on this breathable look by Oanhdaqueen. Her style is very present day and once in a while she'll rock a saucy feminist top : )  After having a gander in my closet, I saw that I had all the necessary pieces except for a fitted denim skirt. Thankfully, Goodwill had my back and I was able to complete the look for under five bucks. I tried making things my own by adding small pigtails and going for an oversized belt. Oanh killed it with her scrunchy tube top, but I was unable to find a similar one at the thrift store.
