Outfit of the Day : Interpretative Weirdness Style

Sometimes when I try to take outfit photos and I'm trying to be serious, they come off awkward and doofy. So I decided just have a little fun......hehe!

Sometimes I just need to get the weird out. 


Have a great weekend! Stay weird my friends!

Ink Stains?! No, Dalmatian Spots

I bought these pants a few summers ago at Forever 21. The pants caught my eye when I saw them on a mannequin and hunted them down as I thought, "Oh! Ink spots". I bought them, wore them and got, "Hey look, dalmatian pants".  Not that dalmatian's aren't rad, but it made me look at the pants differently and thus I started to think they looked ridiculous on me. I know it's stupid, but hey! I'm human.

Enough time has passed, so I pulled them out of the closet and paired them with a sheer button-up top and my trusty ponte knit blazer. I just can't believe I went the whole day without spilling something on them. Oh yeah!

Thank you for hanging out with me!

I Dream of Shoes : Nyx Black

I was looking for leopard print loafers and I ordered the Nyx Black by Type Z instead, but I am glad that I did! I'm a big fan of the loafer style as they are different than a ballerina flat as I find the toe box on ballerina flats too restrictive on my toes. Not that I'm going to stop wearing ballerina flats, I just like a variety and these loafers get an 'A' in the versatility and comfort department. (They also get an A++ in the price department, $21.99!)

Thank you for hanging out with me!

What's Shakin' Bacon?

The weekend was filled with Spring cleaning, but first Tiki drinks were imbibed. Derek is shaking up come Coco Lopez cream of coconut for some Painkillers....the drink not the pills. Teehee!

Sunday was the day. The day we bought two new (to us) vintage gold club chairs, most likely from the 1960s. I don't talk too much about my love of home decor and mid-century furniture, but it's a passion and interest in our home. We have nicknamed our decorating style as "Mid-Century Macabre", mixing mid-century with taxidermy, bones and skulls, funerary items and other macabre art.

Derek and I like to hunt for; furniture, barware, and taxidermy on the weekends. We scour second hand shops, vintage and antique malls, estate sales and we love to get a good deal. The two chairs we bought were a great deal, as the vintage shop owner had the chairs cleaned and the cushions re-foamed while still keeping the integrity of the original gold fabric. Since we acquired these two pieces, the living room was turned into a Tetris game (we have a smallish apartment), yet when we put our two heads together (and me almost killing my back lifting our couch) we produced a set up that we are in love with! I moved some decor items around and Voila! a whole new perspective. 

Sunday's attire was inspired by the 70+ degree weather. Derek and I indulged in some pizza at our favorite pizza place in Buffalo. Gotta fuel up before you start the job. Mmmmm, Gino's never stop making pizza. Never!

Even the skeleton got Spring cleaned. Sprung cleaned? Spring clean? Whatever. Mr. Bones got moved to the tattoo shop along with our toe pincher coffin. I was sad to see them both go, but the shop is like an extension of our home, so we get to decorate there too!

 I think this little corner we set up is so cute and I think Mr. Bones is happy resting his bones in his new church chair at his new home.

And since our weekend doesn't stop at Sunday, here is a peak at Monday's second sitting of my 'Dead Mary' tattoo that is being worked on by my husband. The tattoo is inspired by my love of Derek's Dead Mary statues and all his kitschy and spooky art!

I hope you enjoyed your weekend. Thank you for hanging out with me!
