Dancing shirt

Looks like I took an unintentional break, again. I just haven't been in a blogging mood, lately, and I didn't want to post a lot of filler and half-hearted bits and pieces. I'm not sure when I'll be posting again but Miss Fairchild will be staying with me this week, so I will hopefully have some photos from her visit. And then there's Oz Comic Con next weekend, which means more costume posts!

For now, I thought I'd share an outfit from last week - it's my favourite outfit that I've put together in a long time. I've not been feeling very creative, especially in terms of clothes, so I was pretty proud of this one.

I'm enjoying shorter skirts, lately, and I love clashing patterns, so why not together?

I'm so in love with the pattern on this shirt that I got from savers. Also, it's a shade of green I swore I'd never wear after enduring the uniform of my first high school, but I quite like it, now. It's been long enough since I had to wear that uniform, and broken up with the dancing couples and stripes, I can bear it a bit more. 

And cute, comfy, pointy shoes! Also from Savers.

I am still thinking about how I want to use this blog and how the content may change, and so on. Until then, I hope it won't be too long until my next post - at least the next week or so will provide me with some more material.

Beige for burlesque

Well, that subject doesn't sound very exciting, does it? Hopefully all these outfit posts aren't getting too monotonous - I know it can get a bit that way with nothing else in between. I have some other posts planned but I'm chipping away at them slowly, trying to get my brain in the right space for them.

So, for now, another outfit post shall have to suffice! I wore this when I went to see Oh Crumbs! at Gluttony, an excellent burlesque show put on by my friend Clara Cupcakes, and her partner in crime, as it were, Miss Jane aka Milk and Cookies. I can't remember the last time I laughed as hard, or for as long, as I did that night. Lots of cheering, too.

My hair is getting quite long...but still not long enough! My stern face is telling my hair to grow hair, grow. I really love the collar on this dress, too. Maybe it's more greige than beige? Hmmm.

Last week Savers had a 50% off sale (clothes, accessories, etc.) so, of course, I had to go! I didn't see this dress on my first go around the store but, before I went home, I made sure to go back just to double check. And I saw this on the rack. It's got a couple of holes and I'm not into florals or neutral colours for an entire dress, so I just wasn't sure. But I tried it on and it looked pretty great so, at $5, I figured...why not? I really like it with these rust-coloured tights. I tried pairing it with some brighter tights but these worked best. Nice and Autumnal, no?

Oh, and the colours on this Supernatural badge just went so well with the dress. (The badge is from PeppersPins on etsy). I have a few other badges from her shop, but this one is probably my favourite.

Hopefully it won't be too long until I get the more in-depth posts done and back into a somewhat regular blogging schedule!
