Category Archives: Styles I love
One of my favorite sites to surf is HelloGiggles, and ocassionally they highlight a funky item they’ve come across. Right now it’s the SpiritHood, which is a cute little animal hat/scarf combo. My first thought was “that’s so silly, I could totally rock that!” and began to look through their various styles. I mean, who could resist this:…?
So I thought, if it’s priced at $50 or under, I’d give it serious consideration just for the unique factor. So I clicked on one and saw that they are asking…
But hey, you get FREE SHIPPING (for orders over $150!)
So, if anyone has absolutely nothing better to do with their money, please feel free to get me a Grey Wolf version.
I discovered Humans of New York today.
It is amazing. The blog wonderfully celebrates EVERYTHING. I want to see a picture of every single person in NY 🙂
I absolutely adore these, and thought I would share with those who have similar tastes 🙂
The skirt actually looks fairly simple to recreate, even finding a similar pre-made skirt and adding the clips would be pretty straightforward.
I also really like this dress. It’s so understated that it could be worn out more often. Unfortunately, this style really isn’t something I could pull off. It clearly works best for women with more petite figures and less up top.
Also, I’d like to know who did her makeup.
Another interest that fascinates me is the steampunk couture that has been slowly creeping more into mainstream. With the release of Sucker Punch (loved the look of it, was bored and irritated with the story) and Warehouse 13 being a pretty popular show, I seems to find more of it around.
So I started collecting ideas for outfits and accessories and started compiling images and websites. At the moment I have a gal with experience in corsetry working on a custom design for me. I’m pretty excited to see how it will turn out in the end, but for now I get to just peruse some of the awesome things I’ve found.
This is a duster coat I found online at Etsy. I am saving my pennies for it, because it’s simple, but fantastically elegant and I absolutely love it!
The maker seems to be able to customize it to be exactly what I’d like. Since I’m 5’11”, finding dusters that actually DUST is quite a challenge, so I am hoping to hear back from the seamstress about possible alterations.
The worst part is that once I CAN order it, the wait will be excruciating. It’s coming from the UK!
The fabric design, and even the ruffles are interesting features. I am not a great fan of ruffles, but they are subtle enough to add a nice touch without making it look too frilly.
Keep an eye out for more steampunk stuff, there will be more!
