1920s Swing Dance

I had blogged about 1920s fashion inspiration for the Great Gatsby themed swing dance I was planning on attending. Well, Sunday was the dance and this was my outfit! 

I always have a blast researching different fashion eras and learning about the hair and makeup of the time (thank you Youtube) and trying to recreate a look in my own way. I was also pretty delighted to pull everything I'm wearing from my own wardrobe and was flattered at all the compliments I received.

I love the loose description for 1920s makeup; pale face, dark eyes and red lips. Hrmmm, I can do that! I also solidified my belief that Siouxsie Sioux's makeup and (some) wardrobe was inspired at the 1920s and Egyptian Revival intermixed with punk and goth. 

We clean up pretty well! 

We didn't do any dancing as I'm not going to lie, I wasn't feeling well (again) and took it easy by hanging out at the bar. I have a doctor's appointment today, so I have a lot of questions that I'm hoping will get answered. I'm optimistic that it's a dietary issue as some other major factors have been ruled out. Positive thinking, positive thinking, POSITIVE THINKING!!! Hahahaha!!!

Thank you for reading, until next time!

Friday Night Was Fun

Derek and I went out Friday night to get our wiggle on at a goth/punk night that our friend Bryan hosts. I felt like I haven't been out in forever, so I spent most of my time on the dance floor blowing off some steam. 

Though dancing is always the main course, I can't help but get excited to get dressed up for an evening out. I finally got to wear my Joce Boss Boutique spider web skirt, which is AMAZING! I've had my far share of skater skirts, but this one is the best. The cut of the fabric, the way it's sewn together and the comfortable wide waist band=ahhh, I'm in love! Joce Boss Boutique is taking a short break, but I can't wait to add some more of her skirts to my wardrobe.

Wearing; off-the-shoulder top (H&M), skirt (Joce Boss Boutique), belt (c/o TOBI), winklepicker boots (Demonia via eBay), collar (old, from a Toronto boutique), ankh necklace (Alchemy Gothic, gift from Derek)

I was in such a good and goofy mood, that I was just snapping photos while I was dancing around, because I was truly enjoying myself! And I like to goofy around 99% of the time. Hehehe! Good times, good times indeed.


How is your weekend so far?

Thank you for reading, until next time!

RIP My Favorite Sweater

My favorite drapey sweater is gone. I looked every where and I am accepting the fact that it is gone. I think I left it somewhere by mistake and I'm mourning its loss. Silly, I know, but I loved that darn thing and the more I wore it the more distressed and awesome it became. I will miss you old friend, nothing can replace you.

The 90s Called

I bought this dress back in December at Charlotte Russe when they were having a sale around Christmas. It was purchased with this tunic dress for very little monies, as I thought they would make nice additions to the 'comfy and easy to wear' section of the closet.

Oh the kitty, you ask? He/She is an adorable little creature whom we've been feeding. We believe they are a stray and we soon will be taking them to a vet to get them checked out (see if they are chipped) and then find a forever home. Unfortunately I am very allergic to cats, which is heart breaking since this feline would be very welcome (if we can't find the owner) into our home. Such a sweetheart that basically adopted us. Sigh....

Gust of wind shot

Yeah, this outfit looks very 90s and I wore this exact type of outfit (except I would be wearing combat boots) in my youth. Crazy to think at 35 that the 90s clothing I wore are now considered vintage. So weird!

Wearing; black and white floral dress (Charlotte Russe), leggings and flats (Target), earrings (H&M), Sisters of Mercy necklace (etsy), blue sandstone pendant (flea market), sunglasses (AJ Morgan via Cats Like Us)

Other than taking care of the kitty, having the art show and recovering from last week's trip to the emergency room, it looks like things are going to be very mellow for the next few weeks. I have to admit that I like it when the calendar isn't filled up with scribblings of things and/or events, I like to hermit in my house from time to time.
