Winter weather and faux fur collars. I always feel a little bit Stark's of Winterfell in a big fur collar! I should make a big cloak to wear with one ;) I do wear the "color" black quite often, the nights watch would find me otherwise inept however! Enough Game of Thrones references, more about clothes right? :)
Even though I dress in vintage or retro styles, the little dormant gothic part of me can't help but win out every once and a while. This most plain version of the 1920's 1 hour dress is actually made up in a flowy polyester from Joanns. I wanted a more durable version of my favorite 1920's dress pattern to wear to work and feel confident I wouldn't ruin! The gorgeous silk haori on the other hand is vintage and has such a lovely weight and feel to it. Japanese textiles are so marvelous and feel so luxurious, this will certainly not be the last haori I add to my collection! I paired the haori with my silver faux fur collar, a long black glass beaded necklace, and black lipstick.
I do have to admit these photos are actually from a few weeks back when it was significantly less chilly out (and when I was going through a black lipstick phase <3 ). I can't believe how suddenly busy I have gotten, and anything but outfit posts seems nearly impossible to put together right now so please bear with me! I'm working on it...but I am also working overtime hours at work, so I am very behind! Luckily I will have a bit of time to finish up some other things this weekend, but I also need to help decorate for the holidays which I always love doing! I hope you all are having a wonderful December so far! It's the most wonderf---BUSY time of the year after all!
