Outfit Details:
Black striped top, H&M
Pleated skirt, thrifted and hemmed shorter
Socks: F21
Saddle shoes: DIY, check out the post I created about them over at Foam Mag HERE


So I don't ever really wear a lot of black in my outfits which is funny since I know for many people, wearing black is basically a way of life. I usually opt for navy blue instead of black whenever I can but this day I thought I'd throw caution to the wind and bust out the black. Of course I had to temper my outfit with a shot of electric blue to make me feel better.

How about you guys, is there a color that you don't normally wear? I think part of the reason I don't wear black is because my hair is petty much black (and I have a lot of it) so in that sense, that color is always taken care of. Ooh  and speaking of hair,  thank you to everyone who dropped a hair tip my way! I never detangle from tip to root which is something I should start doing. I should also get a trim, although I just got my hair trimmed last month!  Ayayay.


P.S.

Over the weekend Beatrice of Dear Beatrice  and I met up, had some ramen, took ridiculous asian photobooth pictures (my favorite), and just gabbed and gabbed. She is the best and waddya know, we have so much in common like uhhh our love for all things paranormal! For Beatrice (and anyone else interested): listen to Coast to Coast AM 640 KFI, that's the show that always all the paranormal experts---it's the best!!

  1. Cuute photos! You look good in black, but you look good in anything! I really like the skirt!

    I try to never wear colours with a "cool" undertone, as they don't suit my skintone, so I stay away from white for example, but I wear a lot of cream and off-white instead. And like you I also try to always find navy things instead of black :)

  9. Love the DIY shoes, I really did think they were real saddle shoes at first! The pleated skirt is a gem too xx

  10. I don't really have any colors that are off limits these days. I used to think I couldn't wear bright warm colors like orange or yellow because I'm so fair, but then I just started wearing whatever colors I liked and not worrying about it. I actually get compliments when I wear bright colors too so I guess it doesn't look that bad, or everyone's just being nice. Either way, win.

  11. Hmm, I seldom wear navy blue, actually. I just can't seem to find a way to make it work for me. But black definitely suits you... and it looks as though you and Beatrice had a pretty hilarious time!

  13. really cute idea to hem it shorter.. maybe I can make a "broom" skirt happen again by hemming my mom's old ones?? Maybe? Bueller?

  14. I tend to avoid brown/tan as my skin and hair are darker. Since I started wearing vintage every day I stopped wearing black, in high school I used to go weeks without wearing colour!

  15. That is such an awesome skirt. The pleats make is so pretty. I tend to gravitate towards black, mainly because of the theory that it's slimming. & that last photo is just amazing!

  16. I used to wear almost exclusively black and white, so I know how you feel. :'D
    Awww, those pics are so cute! And awesome~!

  17. Looking great :)

    I own one black top but even that has a white collar. I am clueless when it comes to black.. not least because of my pasty skin colour. Not such a great combination..

  18. Such a cute outfit! Love the socks you added. I don't wear pink usually. I think it might be too girly for me.

  22. why do you guys keep hangin out without me... :(

  23. also, i don't wear a lot of black for the same reason.. and i love navy.. especially with camel

  24. The only colors I don't wear.. are bright, vibrant colors. I think those colors make me feel like I stand out too much. And in a bad way. I suppose it makes feel like a walking "stop" sign? Although a deep red silk blouse sounds like a great idea right now.

    So, my answer now would be... no color restrictions! I do wear a lot of black, but I won't steer away from color. I just have to find the right piece.

  26. Hi! Ok, so i found you on refinery29 and popped over to take a look at your blog (it's great!) and when i got to this post, i recognized beatrice because she is friends with my friend blythe...and THEN i realized you looked really familiar, and i think it's because you were at the little dressember gathering at the gypsy den in santa ana! i hope i'm right, otherwise i sound like a looney here, but either way i love your blog and you get my vote on R29! :)
