Made Up Dreams

It wasn't until the other day that I realized how many velvet pieces I had hanging in my closet. Normally lighter, flowier garments lure me into splurging my money but I guess velvet has a special place in my heart. This is especially true for crushed velvet. I love how it catches light- definitely the most photogenic fabric for sure. While I usuallly wear velvet for more gothier/darker looks, I'm really into taking it into a different direction with a more bohemian, earthy vibe. ( Flowy earth-tone babydoll tank+ Crushed velvet leggings=Dreamier of a pairing than I thought. :'))

Song of the Storm

I sported this outfit sometime a couple weeks back during a brief storm. Dark neutrals tend to be the color scheme of choice for most people when dressing for so-called "gloomy" weather. Oddly, I'm the most energetic when overcast skies are out so I figured why not match my mood with a vibrant look? Also strange: I haven't been wearing earrings this often since I was ten. (Except now I'm wearing gold/turquoise/wooden ones and instead of dangly, plastic monkey ones. Although now that I think about it, those *do* sound pretty rad.)
