Rainbow Dash

Hi!
Sorry for my lack of posting. The weather has been suspicious the past couple of days, and it's either raining, or looks like it's going to rain. I personally don't really feel like getting struck by lightning, but maybe that's just me.

Anyway, I caught a break in the clouds, and ran (figuratively, not literally) to get my tripod. It was kinda humid, but my hair was already a bushy, teased mess, so what's a little moisture going to do? I quite liked my outfit, as I felt it was some kind of cross between Rainbow Brite and a My Little Pony.
There is nothing I love more than a brightly colored, vaguely tacky outfit, and big hair!

Art Deco

Hi!
I know I've said this before, but my favorite color combination by far is red, black and white. It just draws your eye in such a strong way. It's very stark and straightforward, but still has a pulse, an edge if you will. It's very assertive, I think. It's crazy, while I love the whole princess/mermaid/unicorn pastel vibe that is very trendy at the moment, I feel most like me in bold color combos. Like red, yellow and purple, or black, white and red. I feel it most accurately represents me as a person, as a soul. That's why I honestly can't stress enough to wear what feels most like you. The difference it makes in your confidence is huge! I know it sounds incredibly vapid, and maybe it is, but I literally can't imagine dressing in a way, as cheesy as it sounds, that isn't authentic. It feels like you're wearing a disguise. A disguise, that no matter how nice it is, you can tell just isn't real. While there is nothing wrong per se, the shirt matches the pants, the colors go, something just isn't right. 
 
Whatever, I'll stop now, as I probably just sound like a raving lunatic (which I am, but that's beside the point).

It's kinda crazy, I remember buying this dress years ago, and there was a lady standing behind me in line. She started talking to me about how she liked the dress I was buying, and how cute it would look with a pair of red boots. I agreed with her, but as I had no red boots to speak of at the time, I never was able to create the outfit. I was literally like 11 or 12 at the time, and now, years later, I've finally worn that outfit. It's just weird.

The Little Mermaid

Hi!
I actually meant to put this up last night, but I ended up filling up/getting soaked by water guns for my younger siblings/neighbors for a good few hours. By the time I got in, it was too late. So here are some pictures, a day late.

My sister actually found this dress. It's funny, usually whatever I end up buying from thrift stores is stuff my sister finds. Like the turtle neck I wore in the last post. Or, it might technically be a mock-turtle neck. Whatever. Back to the dress. Obviously, when she showed it to me, I had to try it on. It was my favorite color, and it was a shift dress, which I love. And most importantly, it looked like a majestic mermaid tail! I actually bought a dress a little while back that was a lighter/ slightly more greenish teal color, and was covered in sequins. It gave me similar mermaid-y vibes, but it was a body-con fit. It looked really nice, and I thought maybe I could get myself to wear it, since it had such an Ariel aesthetic. But I'm not really used to wearing short, figure hugging dresses, and I felt kinda naked and uncomfortable. So I ended up returning it. This dress, however, is much more my speed.
Here is a photo of me, accidently taking a photo of myself.

Seventies Suburbia

Hi!
Just a quick post, as it's kinda late. I wanted to share this outfit though, as I thought that my shirt looked very seventies, which I totally dig. It really makes no sense though, to make a sleeve-less shirt out of sweater material. It's not exactly the best shirt to wear when one is sitting in the sun. But it looks cute, so whatever.
