Sooooo two very exciting things about this outfit. I must say, it's one of my favorites in a while.
One, how amazing are these shoes?! They came yesterday. They make me like literally 6ft.
Two, I made a skirt. My first-ever piece of real, wearable clothing! I didn't have a pattern or anything, I just sort of went for it, and it turned out pretty good. I used linen.
I realized I kinda love the whole super pale / dark lips and hair / dark circles around eyes look.
It feeds my obsession with Russia and Grimm's fairy tales at the same time.
And it's good because I have very pale skin, dark features, and am always tired.
(By the way, have you ever actually read the original Grimm stories? I have a book of them, and I grew up on them — not the kid/disney versions — and they are damn dark. Everyone dies and gets eaten and cursed. Snow White and Rose Red was always one of my favorites.)
PS: new look. good or no? I had only portrait shots to work with, so I kept reflecting it againandagainandagain until it got long and skinny enough. Then I drew a little banner and scanned it in.
