The tattered-on-purpose skirt is what made the outfit! I found it at Value Village a while ago. I was originally drawn to the subtle striped print, and when I pulled it off the rack... the uneven, frayed hem sold me! It's perfect for pirate outfits too :D
I managed to work some subtle pattern-mixing into this one, with the stripes on the vest and skirt!
I also had some major texture going on, the dominant one being cable-knit! I looove cable-knit. The maroon beret has tiny little cable-knit rows, the chunky camel scarf has huuuge cable-knit, the truquoise gloves have cable-knit... and the thick leggings have cable knit! Yaaaay so cozy and... cable-knitty.
I squealed when I thought to wear my cameo with this outfit -- it adds depth to my little orphan scenario! It's like the last family heirloom the orphan has... wow, I read too many intense stories when I was a kid :P
EAR MUFFS! I can't remember if I've posted these before... they're so warm! This was the first time I'd thought to wear them under a beret.
The reason these were taken inside is because it is TOO COLD outside to take pictures! The day I wore this it was -35C with windchill. Nasty.
Hahaha, this is what my dad does when he imitates models! And this is what I do, hahaha:
So! For the month of February I'm going to do an "Alphabet Challenge," where for 26 days I'll create outfits corresponding to each letter, based on a specific theme. I'm thinking colours (February 1, "A", wear the colour Aubergine... or Azure... or Apricot...), but if you have any other suggestions, I'm open! I also played with the idea of fruits and veggies. Hey, two of the colours I listed would work for that too! Haha. What do you think? Care to join me?
